BERNIE IS NOW READY FOR ADOPTION…
Bernie’s paperwork show that he is registered with “American’s Pet Registry”. We are able to find his sire’s pedigree and lines, but find no information listed for his Standard Poodle Mom. It is available from APR, but you would have to purchase that information from them.
We also know that Bernie had spent his entire life in a Wisconsin shed being used as a stud. He was recently sold to a loving family as the BYB (back yard breeder) decided to get out of that business. Sadly, in the few days with his new family, they realized that Bernie was too much for them to handle, so Bernie came to us. Thank you Kara and Jim.
This big and “soft” boy can be silly at times, especially first thing in the morning. He likes to follow me or Mike around the house, loves men as well as women, has begun to play with toys and greatly enjoys when someone comes knocking on our front door. He will bark with excitement and will happily greet new faces as he believes they have come to see HIM!!
Grab a leash and Bernie is ready to go for a short walk (1 mile or less) or a car ride with you. You will get lots of attention while walking or driving down the road with this big, brown boy. We are working on “come” as this is a crucial command that all dogs must learn. We can see that will take a little bit more time, but we always have a positive attitude and treats in our pockets.
At times, Bernie can be a bit shy and unsure of himself, but considering his past life, he is learning that people do love him, treats are yummy, and as with all loving dogs, he LOVES HUGS! I’m always amazed how these neglected and unloved Poodles can forgive and quickly learn to love people unconditionally! Could you do that?
Bernie is used to being an only dog; all by himself. But he did learn a LOT about being a house dog, playing with toys and enjoying life with a family while hanging around the Standard Poodle puppy, “Chumley” (pictured below).
Bernie was thankful for that time, but he is much happier now without that silly, Poodle puppy. Bernie would be OK by himself if someone is home most of the time, but I can see that he would like being with another big, older, quiet and gentle dog, like Faline was.
Bernie has been a perfect gentleman in our home (house-trained). We do require our Poodles to be kenneled while we are gone and at night. Bernie isn’t happy about that, but has quickly learned that those are our rules.
A securely fenced yard will be required as this big boy loves to run and has not learned to relieve himself while on a leash. Past Standard Poodle or large dog experience is preferred. Absolutely no small children, no small dogs and no cats!
Yes. Bernie had been sadly neglected and lacked Vet care all his life. In addition to being neutered, our Vet found that he Bernie had extremely severe ear infections and a bladder infection which caused other problems in his life.
Transitioning these neglected dogs takes time, patience and money. But Poodles are very smart, we have a great Vet and always appreciate donations!
At his final Vet visit (our Vet also thinks this is the BEST Poodle ever), Bernie was checked healthy and given a clean bill of health! He has been neutered, teeth cleaned, heartworm, Lymes tested negative and placed on a preventative. He has been micro chipped and registered. All of his shots and worming are up to date. Everything is done!
Mike and I have found that Bernie is a great Standard Poodle who is easy to fall in love with. To the right family, his $650.00 adoption fee includes the $43.00 Minnesota state sales tax and helps pay for just some of his vet expenses. Also included is his very large wire crate, a new blanket, a big bag of dog food, dog treats, dog toys, dog dishes, a bottle of NuVet vitamins, a big dog bed, leash, collar and lots of good information to help your adoption start off on the right paw forward.
PLEASE! NO APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED UNTIL KASPER IS READY FOR ADOPTION…
A big “HELLO” to little (and a bit chunky) “KASPER” who is a brown, 5 year old (01/15/2013), gentle and extremely loving Toy Poodle. Sadly Kasper comes to us from an owner whose health is failing and can no longer care for her beloved Poodle boy.
Kasper’s appointment with our Vet went very good. He now weighs 10 pounds, so he only needs to lose 2 more pounds. His teeth cleaned up nicely, his shots are all up to date, he is heartworm, Lymes tested negative and Home Again micro chipped.
However, Kasper has a bladder infection as he had been wearing a belly band most all of the time. Kasper is perfect gentleman (house trained) in our home so we’ve thrown that band away. He is a smart boy, has NOT had any accidents and greatly enjoys going outside.
Another Vet visit will be required to make sure his infection has cleared up before we have him available for adoption.
Sorry, but brown is a very hard color to photograph. Also, thank you for your patience as we want to make sure Kasper is all better before he is available for adoption.
Layla is a very sweet gentle Basset Hound Poodle mix. We estimate her to be around 9 years old, is 13″ tall and she weighs approximately 34 lbs.
She gets along great with the six other hounds at her foster home. Layla likes to “tell” the deer, turkeys and squirrels outside in the backyard that she’s watching them.
Layla would prefer a home with very few stairs as she does have some issues with her back legs being a bit stiff. She takes a glucosamine supplement for her joints and allergy medications only for seasonal allergies.
Since she inherited a poodle coat, regular haircuts will be important for her. She has a hard time with hard food and treats so softened food and treats would be her preference. If you’d like a sweet mellow lady as a companion Layla is your gal! (NOTE FROM GAIL: You can also soak a hard kibble in water or a sodium free broth to soften it).
For more information about Layla and schedule a meeting please visit www.mnbassetrescue.com and fill out our adoption application.

ADOPTION PENDING ON “CHUMLEY”…..
A BIG HELLO TO “CHUMLEY” who is a very pretty, creamy white, 1 year old (08/18/2017) silly, active and fun loving PUPPY boy. Chumley is around 26″ tall (measuring from the floor to his shoulder), only 51 pounds (a bit thin) and is one of the biggest Standards I’ve seen in a long time.
We’re unsure of Chumley’s breeding or background, but we know that he was purchased by a family as a puppy from the breeder. A few months later, he was sold on Craigslist to his new loving family. They had found that while Chumley is friendly, sociable and active (loves to run and play), he was too much (in your face) towards their older Standard Poodle and their young children. Thank you Janelle and Troy!
This is a big, goofy PUPPY boy who believes every day is like a day at our Minnesota State Fair! FUN! FUN! FUN! Yet, we can see there is great potential for this boy as he is a loving Poodle who WILL quickly learn about manners and obedience.
We have begun to work on “come” as this is a crucial command that all dogs must learn. We can see that will take a bit of time, but we always have a positive attitude and treats in our pockets.
This puppy boy is so very smart and learned that treats are yummy! Yes, he is food motivated! He also LOVES HUGS!
As pictured in this below video, Chumley has learned to sit and be good while waiting for his “treat”!
Chumley has learned to walk nicely on a leash and not pull so hard as to separate my arm from my body. You will get lots of attention while walking with this boy!
He goes directly to my husband, Mike, especially when the leash comes out as he knows a walk is about to happen. When Mike is home, Chumley runs to his arms, listens to him! He loves men!
We know Chumley did not get along with the Poodle at his previous home and can clearly see that our “Faline” really disliked him. To her, Chumley is obnoxious, rude and a teen-age child with no respect or manners.
However, as pictured in the video below, Chumley greatly enjoys hanging around “Bernie”. The two will follow each other around, so we know Chumley can get along with other dogs!
Chumley is NOT a rescue Poodle, but a “rehome” and a rare opportunity for the right family. He has always been in a family environment and deeply loved. In turn, Chumley loves to play with people and his toys while greatly enjoying attention, hugs and kisses. He would like to be with another big dog, but again, it would have to be the right dog.
Chumley has been a perfect gentleman in our home (house-trained) and has never had an accident! He prefers to sleep on the couch, but will settle on the floor if he’s totally exhausted. We do require our Poodles to be kenneled while we are gone and at night, so Chumley has quickly learned about that!
A securely fenced yard will be required as this big boy loves to run. Past Poodle or large dog experience preferred! Absolutely no small children, no small dogs and no cats!
He has been Vet checked healthy, neutered, heartworm, Lymes tested negative and placed on a preventative. He has been micro chipped and registered. All of his shots and worming are up to date. Everything is done!!!
Chumley is like a bull in a china shop, but puppies do grow up. So you need to be willing and able to continue teaching him manners and obedience so he can become a great ADULT Poodle. And we all know that will happen soon enough.
His $850.00 adoption fee includes our Minnesota state sales tax, a very large 700 kennel (optional), a new blanket, a big bag of dog food, dog treats, dog toys, dog dishes, a bottle of NuVet vitamins, a big dog bed, leash, collar and lots of good information to help your adoption start off on the right paw forward.
There are so many squirrel’s in our yard gathering the bumper crop of acorns! As you can see , Chumley (and Faline) are willing to help us keep those pesky rodents out of our yard as Poodles were bred for hunting!
OK. One more video of Chumley while he is looking for the treat and Faline nicely waiting for a treat from Mike….
ADOPTION PENDING ON….
He had been imported to a quality Poodle breeder a couple years ago, who had hoped to use him in their breeding program. But it was decided that Collin was something they did not want to continue breeding and so he was neutered in June.
Neutering male dogs always helps to settle them down. The breeder then moved forward with simple and basic training for Collin to become a family pet.
This big boy is an active, outgoing, sociable Standard Poodle who, like our “Chumley” (below), is very smart. He is not a needy Poodle, but an energetic and independent boy always ready for an adventure with you. Ready for some action? He loves to walk on a leash, but could use a training class (obedience) to refine this skill. Yes, he will learn as this is a Poodle!
Collin would need to be in adult home, with no small dogs, no cats and no young children. A fenced yard will also be required. This boy gets along just fine with other large dogs who love to run, romp and just have fun. After all, boys just wanna have fun, right?
He is crate trained and doing very good on his house training. He has been Vet checked healthy, neutered, vaccinations are up to date, heartworm tested negative, microchip and wormed. To the right family, his adoption fee is $900.00.
