POODLES AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION

UPDATED:  TUESDAY – MAY 21, 2019

A STORY TO SHARE…

Saturday night was getting dark and the rain continued to pour down.  Yet Pirate was happily dancing back and forth in our fenced yard while gazing into the woods.  On our deck I could not see what he was so excited about.  It couldn’t be a deer, squirrel or rabbit as he normally would have been barking at them.

As I approached the fence where Pirate was still happily dancing, I searched the dark woods until I could see….  There!  Deep in our woods!  I saw something big and white that was standing very still and looking right at us.  I quickly realized it was a very scared, big dog that seemed to be tied around various trees.

Suddenly from the distance, I heard people shouting.  At the top of my voice I yelled, “HERE HE IS!” . After shouting back and forth a few more times, a group of anxious people came down our driveway and quickly approached us.  Only then did Pirate start barking.

Apparently the owner accidentally dropped the retractable leash (those things should be banned), which scared the dog who then took off running.

Yes.  It was Pirate who became the hero, for that lost dog that would have otherwise never been seen.

AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION…

PIRATE is a male Standard Poodle puppy who came as a donation from a breeder who we had previously received “Finley”, “Patrick” and “O’Connor” from.

So say hello to “PIRATE”, an AKC black, easy going Standard Poodle puppy who was born on November 22, 2018.   He is a chunky 42 pounds and stands about 21 inches from the floor to his shoulder.  He is a most beautiful and active puppy boy that loves to play and run.

He is also extremely smart and sociable!  Pirate is the first one to greet people asking to be given some loving hugs.   He will then show them where all the treats are stashed.   I am amazed how he has learned that it’s not always HIS way, that being loved and receiving hugs is so much better than being alone, and treats are great!  This boy will even clean my house for a treat (just kidding).

Pirate will be a nice Standard Poodle size; not the big “royal” and not the small “Moyen”.  He has proven to be very intelligent as in less than one week with us, he quickly learned to keep his kennel clean, is doing perfect with our “puppy routine” (house training), learned to go up and down the steps, walk on a leash, is learning to come when called and enjoys life as an active member in a HOME with a FAMILY!

Pirate can be a bit reserved in new situations, a little hard to catch and most certainly needs work.  He also needs socialization while being exposed to people (SEE STORY ABOVE), places and things.
But this is a POODLE (one of the smartest dogs) puppy and has responded so nicely to positive attention along with a loving, easy going attitude and TREATS!  Look how quickly he is learning to play “fetch”…

PLEASE NOTE:
*A FENCED YARD WILL BE REQUIRED as these boys loves to run!
*NO cats, NO little dogs, NO aggressive or assertive dogs and NO young children!
*Pirate enjoys being with other easy going FUN LOVING and older dogs, but will also be a great “only” dog for a family to spoil.
*Preference will be given to active families with past Standard Poodle experience who can train and work with this smart puppy boy.

Yes. This is a very rare opportunity for the right family as we all know good Standard Poodle puppies are hard to find.  With the introduction of “Doodles”, sadly the Standard Poodle breed is slowly being eliminated and becoming extinct.  Why Doodle when you can Poodle?

PIRATE is AKC registered and we do have those papers, but they will not be given to you unless you have an acceptable reason for their possession.  We are not familiar with the pedigree.   While both parents had their hips x-rayed and approved, there is no information about any other testing done.

Pirate has an adoption fee of $800.00 (including our $55.00 Minnesota state sales tax). All of his shots are up to date, he has been wormed, placed on a heartworm preventative, Home Again micro-chipped and registered.   He has been been Vet checked “healthy, strong and sturdy” and neutered.

His adoption fee also includes a leash, collar, a large bag of quality puppy food, treats, toys, a folding toy box, one month supply of NuVet Plus Canine vitamins, a new blanket, a big, soft doggie bed, the book “Puppies For Dummies” along with lots of good information to help your adoption move forward on the right paw!

We do have a like new, large wire crate available for you need it.  A $50.00 donation is being suggested.

NOTICE: Like most all reputable rescue groups, we do NOT adopt our Poodles to families who live outside a 1 days drive (500 miles) from our location here in central Minnesota.
Thank you.

HELLO?  LOOK AT ME!!!  This mostly hairless puppy boy may look and act like a Chinese Crested, but is in fact a Maltipoo (Maltese x Poodle) puppy who was born October 19, 2018 and comes to us from a breeder.  Yes, this cute 10 pound puppy boy has a very interesting story to tell!

When he was neutered by our Vet, skin samples were taken and sent to the Marshfield Wisconsin Labs (division of the Marshfield clinic) .  We had an idea what caused this puppy to be hairless, but tests confirmed this shocking, extremely rare (once in a life-time sight!) GENETIC DISORDER:
ECTODERMAL DYSPLASIA!

You’ve seen and heard of a Chinese Crested and how about a Mexican Hairless dog?  That is exactly what Patches has!  Again, this is a genetic disorder that basically deals with its x-linked nature and tends to manifest in males.  It is NOT contagious, NO special care is required, NO special food is needed and NO neglect or abuse is involved.  Patches is just a very, VERY SPECIAL and rare dog!

Patches has no concerns about his outward appearance as his true beauty comes out with his extremely friendly, sociable, outgoing and fun loving attitude!  Something we all can learn from.

This puppy boy is very curious about everything!  He loves all the Poodles here!  Even the Pomeranian “Thunder” is trying to get into the picture with Patches.

HELLO!!!???  Are you still reading about Patches here?  This is a very active, sociable puppy boy who greatly enjoys running and playing with toys.  When he is done playing, he just LOVES to be held and cuddled while being reassured that he truly is beautiful!

Below is a video of how much Patches loves playing with his new toy,  He is trying real hard to make the rooster crow again…

Below you can see that Patches has quickly learned to play fetch!!  OMG!  What smart boy as he even lets little “Sundae” take the toy away from him…

Finally, Patches is also an extremely smart boy who is quickly learning about house training with our “puppy routine”.  He will also run up and down the steps, comes when he is called, LOVES TREATS and is greatly enjoying life as an active member in our home!!

What else can I say?  This special boy is a rare opportunity for the right family willing to accept all the attention you and this Maltipoo will get when you take him out in public.  He just loves attention too!

A fenced yard will be required as he is not leash trained.  NO large, aggressive or assertive dogs and NO young children.

To the right family, Patches adoption fee is $400.00, which includes our Minnesota state sales tax.  He is up to date on all of his shots, he has been wormed, placed on a heartworm preventative, Home Again micro-chipped and registered.   Also he has been been Vet checked “healthy, strong and sturdy” and neutered.

His adoption fee also includes a leash, collar, his kennel, a bag of quality puppy food, treats, toys (which he loves!) a folding toy box, new blanket, a big, soft doggie bed, along with lots of good information to help your puppy adoption move forward on the right paw!

 

 

 



NOW AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION….

Say “Hello!” to “THUNDER” who (even with her hair cut) is an extremely cute, black, female Pomeranian!  She was born June 10, 2010 and was being retired by a breeder.  The breeder did cry when she put Thunder into my arms as she wanted this special little girl to enjoy the rest of her life living with a family and not in a kennel.  Sometimes the greatest gift you can give is to let go.

While we only accept Poodles, I just couldn’t say “No” to this cute girl.  Thunder didn’t like it when I told her she was NOT a Poodle, but was excited when I reassured her that I would find her a good and loving “forever more” family.

Thunder is a healthy 12 pounds.  I’ve been told she is the “normal size” for a Pom and has an exceptionally loving, easy going personality.   A very nice little girl who also just loves being with Mike and me.  She and Sundae will follow us around the house, always waiting to be loved, picked up or given attention.  Even as I enter Thunder’s information onto our web site now, she is sitting on the floor right next to my chair!

What a great opportunity for the right family.  Thunder is so easy going that she gets along just fine with ALL of our Poodles and walks away from the puppies.  Those pups are too silly and fun loving for her.  Thunder doesn’t play with toys and has no desire to be a part of any doggie play time.  She would just like to sit in your lap or on the couch next to you while watching all the activity going on around her; very easy going.

Thunder would be good as an only dog or with another OLDER, gentle, easy going dog.  PLEASE, NO puppies,  NO large, aggressive or assertive dogs and NO young children.  A fenced yard will be required as she has been a kennel dog all her life and is not leash trained.

She is AKC registered, but her papers are not available.   Thunder is also VERY smart and quickly learning about house training with our “puppy routine”, will run up and down the steps, comes when she is called, LOVES TREATS and greatly enjoys her life as an active member in our home!

To the right family, Thunder’s adoption fee is $350.00, which includes our Minnesota state sales tax.  She is up to date on all of her shots, she has been wormed, placed on a heartworm preventative, Home Again micro-chipped and registered.   Also she has been been Vet checked “healthy, strong and sturdy”.  Her teeth have been cleaned and she has been spayed.

Her adoption fee also includes a leash, collar, her kennel, a bag of quality dog food, treats, toys, a folding toy box, a new blanket, a big, soft, pink doggie bed, along with lots of good information to help your adoption move forward on the right paw!

 

 

 

 

 



ADOPTION PENDING ON ….

this 8 pound, apricot, female Toy Poodle named “SUNDAE” who was born on February 14, 2014.  She was purchased from a Michigan breeder and then came to Minnesota.   Sadly, Sundae had lost her various litters of newborn puppies and so the breeder surrendered her to us.

Because “Sundae” was born on “Valentine’s Day”, she is a sweetheart who in the past few weeks, has quickly adapted to life in a home with our family.  Her greatest thrill is playing with the toys and becoming very “nurturing” to certain specific little toys.  As pictured, she will carry them around and make sure they are a part of her life.

When not playing with the toys, Sundae will follow Mike and I around the house, always waiting and wanting to be picked up.  This is a “Velcro” Poodle who just wants to be a part of your life.  It has become very easy for Mike and I to become attached to this cute Poodle girl.

Sundae is about 9″ tall and the old-fashioned long in the body structure.  She is AKC registered, but her papers are not available.   She is also VERY smart and quickly learning about house training with our “puppy routine”, will run up and down the steps, comes when she is called, LOVES TREATS and greatly enjoys her life as an active member in our home!

Sundae dose NOT like the two puppies, Patches and Peggy Sue and the other Poodles.  She gets really upset with them and their silly puppy behavior.

Yet Sundae is a gentle and loving little girl who would need to be an only dog and with NO young children.  A fenced yard will be required as she has been a kennel dog all her life and is not leash trained.

To the right family, Sundae’s adoption fee is $400.00, which includes our Minnesota state sales tax.  She is up to date on all of her shots, she has been wormed, placed on a heartworm preventative, Home Again micro-chipped and registered.   Also she has been been Vet checked “healthy, strong and sturdy”.  Her teeth have been cleaned and she has been spayed.

Her adoption fee also includes a leash, collar, her kennel, a bag of quality dog food, treats, toys, a folding toy box, a new blanket, a big, soft, pink doggie bed, along with lots of good information to help your adoption move forward on the right paw!

OK.  I’ll try to get some pictures of Sundae without her favorite toy soon.

 

 

 



ADOPTION PENDING ON PEGGY SUE….

THIS TINY FEMALE POODLE (born 12/15/18) had sadly broken her left front and left rear legs when she was just a few weeks old.  It was an accident and the breeder’s Vet did all they could to help.  But at 3 months old, her bones were not healing correctly, so the breeder surrendered this tiny 2 pound girl to us.

Our Vet had taken various x-rays of her broken legs and then involved a Specialist.  They found that her rear leg has a broken tibia and fibula.  Our Vet put a splint on that leg which required it to be changed every week.

The front leg appears to have healed as she uses that leg.  Despite all that has happened to this tiny little girl, she comes with a big attitude of fun and joy!  What a inspiration she is to us and everyone at our Vet’s office.  They have named her “Peggy Sue”.

As you can see in the video below, this girl loves to run and play while all the other Poodles stay out of her way.  She is quick, but if you try real hard, you can see her left rear leg when it was in a cast!!

 

After 4 weeks in her splint, x-rays were taken that showed her bones (the fibula and tibia) did not heal.  My Vet had tried.  Because there was no muscle, no blood supply or living tissue left, the bones did not heal.

Sadly, Peggy Sue’s entire left leg was amputated on Monday, April 29th.  Here is some information about that procedure from ACVS (American College of Veterinary Surgeons):

LIMB AMPUTATION  “The most common location for removing a damaged or diseased limb in dogs and cats is up high where the limb meets the body. This is so that any remaining portion of the leg does not become a problem for the pet. Any portion of a limb that remains may become traumatized during daily activities or interfere with movement.
Partial limb amputations and prosthetic (artificial limb) use in pets is a new treatment option for some patients. As with other procedures this is not a good option for all pets and all owners. Stump management and prosthetic use requires diligent daily care and attention. Some dogs may need several prosthetics over their lifetime.”

Please understand that Peggy Sue is NOT in pain and has already lived most of her life without use of her left leg.  She is just fine.  Below is a video of her taken just 10 days after her leg was surgically removed.

Peggy Sue has been Vet checked “HEALTHY”.   She now weighs 2 1/2 pounds.  Even without her left leg, she is still an active, silly and such a loving puppy girl.

PLEASE NOTE:
*A FENCED YARD WILL BE REQUIRED!
*NO cats, NO large dogs, NO aggressive or assertive dogs and NO young children!
*She enjoys being with other little silly dogs, but will also be a great “only” dog for a family to spoil.
*Preference will be given to families with past TINY TOY experience who can train and work with this special needs little girl.

To the right family, Peggy Sue’s adoption fee is $500.00, which includes our Minnesota state sales tax.  She is up to date on all of her shots, and has been wormed.  A spay contract will be required where your options will be to return Peggy Sue to us by 10 months of age for her spay and Home Again microchip.  OR your Vet can spay her and we will then offer you a $100.00 rebate.

Her adoption fee also includes a tiny leash, collar, harness, her kennel, a bag of quality puppy food, treats, tiny toys (which she loves!) a folding toy box, new blanket, a big, soft doggie bed, along with lots of good information to help your puppy adoption move forward on the right paw!
