Millie and Glinda
Adults and Rescues
Please contact me regarding my adults available now for adoption. Esmerelda is my black, 5-year-old, 10-pound, spayed female and Krooshchicky is my red, 8-pound, red, spayed female, and Dash is my 4-year-old, 5-pound, apricot male (pending neutering) who are looking for good homes.
I get dozens of requests from people looking for an adult poodle. It seems there are some breeders out there that discard their adults after they can no longer whelp or sire litters. Of course, this isn't in the best interest of the poodle, only the breeder. I guess they can't be bothered with the maintenance of an older poodle, or care for more than their money-makers. More often than not, my parent poodles are "lifers" and will live with me their whole lives. Very infrequently, if I ever have an adult poodle that I feel will be able to get on just as well with a new family, I adopt out that poodle with a spay/neuter contract. And yes, I have rescued poodles outside of my pedigrees. One was a deaf/blind poodle that another reputable breeder didn't have the heart to put down but had a big family and no time to take care of a handicapped poodle. That wonderful breeder recognized that the little toy poodle had an exceedingly high desire to survive so she gave her to me. Rai (named for Ray Charles) is alive, happy, and protected in my care. She doesn't know she is handicapped and has actually learned how to give me her paw and to come on command (the signal is blowing air in her direction).
I realize that even with the best intentions of breeding the most perfect poodles we can find, not all poodles are born perfect. I'm trying to do my part as a breeder to take in the imperfect poodles no one else wants. I'm not just some inactive member of some organization but work with rescues in my area who have agreed to bring me their matted, dirty, unrecognizable poodle and I will clean and groom them. attend to the eye, ear, and dental care and make them beautiful again as they were born to be. This way the rescues will have a greater chance to find wonderful, loving homes for their poodle rescues.
