POODLES AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION

-UPDATED JULY 2024-

“TUCKER”, ‘HARLOW”,”LULU”, AND “MATTEO” have come to us from a Minnesota breeder who is retiring.  Special thank you to this breeder as she was willing to wait until the tax season ended (April 15th) for me so we could start accepting some of her adult Poodles.  She also wanted the best homes for her Poodles as they enter their “retirement” years.

MORE INFORMATION WILL BE POSTED AND ADOPTION APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED ONLY WHEN all their required Veterinarian work is completed.  Yes, this is sadly taking longer than usual as our Vet (and most all Vets) are very busy now.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

“TUCKER” IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION.  He is a creamy white AKC Standard Poodle who was born June 23, 2015.  He weighs a healthy 63 pounds and measures 25″ from the floor to his withers.

Tucker was scared out of his mind the first few days with us.  But he quickly learned how to come, sit and has been a perfect gentleman (housetrained) in our home.
Did I tell you that he is such a very smart and a very good boy?!

Now Tucker has learned all about being a family dog.  He will follow us around our home while being a part of our family and is always ready for hugs and attention.  He is allowed to run freely while we are home, yet when we are gone and at night, he is kenneled (like all our Poodles are) which he has no problem with.

We’ve also taken him to various public events, including several softball games that our grandchildren were playing in.  A bit worried at first (something new), but he quickly learned that softball was fun to watch!  He then had a good time while enjoying all the noise, commotion, and people all around.  He also received and enjoyed a lot of love, attention and hugs from many of the children at the games.

At Tucker’s recent dental appointment, he had 25 of his rotting teeth removed.  Ouch.  It was a difficult and long surgery, but he did just fine and now he is feeling a LOT better.  He is now eating hard kibble, so no need for soften dog food.
Our Vet also removed 3 small cysts from Tuckers back and side.  They are NOT CANCER, but we all felt they needed to be removed.

Yes, all his Vet work was very expensive.  But Tucker is such an amazing loving, smart and good boy that we want the best for him.  Everyone loves him, including the staff at our Vet’s office as they all wanted to take him home!

Tucker is a quiet, soft, gentle, easy going big boy; a real cream puff.   Going for his morning walk with Mike when he listens to the birds sing and meeting people is on the TOP of his list of fun things he loves to do.

I would also like to stress that he is a very smart boy and has quickly figured out what to do and when.  Example, rattle the Cheerios bag and he knows it’s time for breakfast as Mike sneaks Tucker a few Cheerios from the bag.

While Tucker has been around other dogs all his life. Yet he completely ingnores small dogs, but is just fine with other easy-going large female dogs, like our Standard Poodle Lola.  As seen in the video, he enjoys playing “tag” with Lola in our back yard.  But yet, Tucker would be the perfect boy all by himself as he considers himself a member of a family and NOT a dog.

*A SECURLY FENCED YARD WILL BE REQUIRED as he has been a kennel dog and not trained to relieve himself on a leash.
*You must be physically able to handle a large Standard Poodle.
*Preference will be given to a quiet family with past Standard Poodle experience.
*Large, easy going, female dogs are fine.

BUT PLEASE:
*NO small dogs, puppies, male dogs or cats.
*NO aggressive or assertive dogs (they scare him and me).
*NO young children.
*Like most all rescue groups, we do NOT adopt our Poodles to homes more than 1 day’s drive (round trip) from our location here in central Minnesota.

Yes.  This is a very rare opportunity for the right family as we all know that a good Standard Poodle is hard to find.  With the introduction of Doodles, sadly the Standard Poodles are becoming harder to find.  Why Doodle when you can Poodle?

He has been neutered, dental work is completed, he is up to date on vaccinations, worming, heartworm/lymes/ehrlich/anaplas (4DX) tested negative, placed on a heartworm preventative, and Home Again microchipped.

As with all the other Standard Poodles we have adopted, Tucker’s adoption fee is 1 million, trillion, zillion dollars.  However, for the right family his adoption fee is $650.00 which includes $45.00 for our 7.375% Minnesota state sales tax and helps pay for just some of his extensive vet work.

Also included is his leash, collar, a bag of quality dog food, a 10-gallon dog food container, treats, a cute toy box, along with a new blanket, dog bed and lots of good information to help your Poodle adoption move forward on the right paw!  With a $50.00 donation, his extra-large wire crate can also be included.

Tucker is a very nice Standard Poodle boy who deserves a good and loving home for his “retirement”.  Yes, we would keep him, but the greatest gift we give our Poodles is to let them go when the right family comes to adopt them.

HARLOW is gentle, creamy white parti, AKC female, Standard Poodle who was born April 29, 2017.   She weighs a chunky 60 pounds and measures 22″ from the floor to her withers.
Harlow was recently spayed, but her dental Vet appoitment was canceled as another dog needed an emergency surgery.  Yes, thanks to Harlow, that dog is doing just fine.
Harlow’s dental work has now taken place and she will be available for adopted SOON!!

ADOPTION PENDING ON “LULU” .

She is a friendly, sociable, red with white markings, AKC Miniature Poodle who was born April 26, 2017.  She weighs a healthy 21 pounds and measures 16″ from the floor to her withers.

Lulu was scared out of her mind the first few days with us.  But she quickly became the sociable and loving Poodle as she had been a house dog before being sold to a kennel.  She has also been a perfect girl in our home (housetrained). This is such a very smart and good girl too!

Sit down then watch as Lulu will jump into your lap and snuggle with you.  As pictured, she greatly enjoying visiting with our granddaugher who had just finished her recent softball game in Becker.

Lulu follows us around our entire home while being a part of our family.  She is also allowed to run freely in our home while we are home.  I’ve even found her in our bedroom on our bed while enjoying looking at herself in the mirror saying… “Look at me!  I’m so cute!”.

Lulu also likes to help me make the bed and fold the laundry.  I suspect she’d like to sleep in bed with people too.  When we are gone and at night, she is kenneled (like all our Poodles are) which she has no problem with.

Lulu is a soft, gentle, easy-going girl who just loves men as well as women. She will come when she is called, will bark when someone comes to the door, she enjoys going for a short walk, but also likes to sit on the chair while watching you and all that is going on around her.

While Lulu has been around other dogs all her life, she would be willing to accept living with another family dog.  But she would be just fine by herself as she considers herself a member of a family and NOT a dog.

*A SECURLY FENCED YARD WILL BE REQUIRED as she has been a kennel dog and not trained to relieve herself on a leash.
*You must be physically able to handle a large Miniature Poodle.
*Preference will be given to a quiet family with past Poodle experience.
*Easy going, gentle dogs are fine.

BUT PLEASE:
*NO puppies or cats.
*NO aggressive or assertive dogs (they scare her and me).
*NO young children.
*Like most all rescue groups, we do NOT adopt our Poodles to homes more than 1 day’s drive (round trip) from our location here in central Minnesota.

Lulu had been spayed.  Then a few weeks later at her dental appointment, she had 22 of her rotting teeth removed.  It was a difficult and long surgery, but she did just fine.  As with Tucker, she is feeling a LOT better and is now eating a hard kibble, so no need for soften dog food.

She is up to date on her vaccinations, worming, has been heartworm / lymes / ehrlich / anaplas (4DX) tested negative, placed on a heartworm preventative, and Home Again microchipped.

As with all the other Poodles we have adopted, Lulu’s adoption fee is 1 million, trillion, zillion dollars.
However, for the right family her adoption fee is $450.00 which includes $31.00 for our 7.375% Minnesota state sales tax.  This fee helps to pay for some of her extensive vet work.
Also included is her leash, collar, a bag of quality dog food, a 10-gallon dog food container, treats, dog toys in a cute toy box, a new blanket, a dog bed along with her kennel and lots of good information to help your Poodle adoption move forward on the right paw!

Lulu is a very nice, loving Miniature Poodle girl who deserves a good and loving home for her “retirement”.   Like with Tucker, we would keep her, but the greatest gift we give our Poodles is to let them go when the right family comes to adopt them.

 

 

 

NOTE:  We never realized that Lulu had been stung by some insect (bee? wasp? hornet?) on the 4th of July until later that evening when the swelling began.  We were quickly able to get her into our Vet the next morning, where they treated the sting and place her on antibiotics.
She will be just fine!  But is not happy about wearing the cone of shame again which helps to prevent her from licking that “ouchie” area.  (click on picture to get a larger view).

If you dog should ever experience anything like this, be sure to get them to your Vet so they can be treated as it is painful for them.

MATTEO is a quiet, shy, creamy white parti, CKC male, Toy Poodle who was born April 20, 2019.
He weighs a healthy 11 pounds and measures 11″ from the floor to his withers.

Matteo and Harlow

Matteo (pronounced Ma Tay Oh), is ahhh…. something different.  He doesn’t bark, bite, growl or come near us.  Lets just say that he likes to be independent and only wants to hang around with Lulu, Harlow and our Lola, the female Standard Poodles.

Obviously, he considers himself a Miniature/Standard Poodle and not a small (Toy) sized Poodle.  I have no idea why he is the way he is, but can clearly see that he doesn’t know how to deal with people.

We’ve had Poodles like Matteo before and know that they DO come around.  Yes, it will take time, lots of love, patience and perhaps a good dog Psychologist.
