I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.


I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

It has been awhile since we received rescued Poodles.

However, with the recently passed Minnesota Law, HF 84, we and many other rescue groups are encouraging Millers and BYB's to start registration of their facility in July of this year. The compliance for licensing and inspections involved in being a Dog or Cat Breeder in Minnesota starts in 2015.

Pictured right is "Pebbles", on the left side and next to her is her lifetime friend "Cola", after they arrived from northern Minnesota

As pictured, you can see these two are very scared and unsure of what is going on. They cling to each other for support; a "bonded pair" and will need to be adopted together.

Pebbles and Cola have been together as a breeding pair, but have not produced puppies in over a year.

They have served their time and now come to us in need of a family where they can spend their final years together in a gentle and loving home.

Cola is a 9 year old brown Toy Poodle who is about 8.5" tall and 8.5 pounds. Like Pebbles, he could also lose some weight.

Cola is feeling much better after ALL of his rotting teeth were removed. He still loves his food and will quickly gobble down his hard kibble. NO soft food for this boy!

The infection in his mouth spread to his lungs which caused him to cough a lot. X-rays showed that his heart is just fine. The coughing is much better. He is wearing a harness which also helps.

Cola was also neutered, heartworm tested negative and placed on antibiotics. He is feeling MUCH BETTER and has become more involved with people, toys and his new life with people. He is even running around the house with a toy in his mouth! VERY cute!

While Cola and Pebbles have enjoyed each others company for a long time, we have found that Cola is now enjoying his life without Pebbles in his kennel!

We have separated the two so they each have their own "home" kennel. Cola is no longer such a "grumpy old man" and Pebbles greatly enjoys not being growled at all the time.

Yes, Cola and Pebbles are doing just fine and are now available for adoption. Preference will be given to families willing to adopt the two together, but we would be willing separate the two.

Please no large dogs or small children. A fenced yard will be suggested as we work on leash training. Both will continue to need more work and socialization as they learn about living their life with good people!

Their adoption fee of $200.00 each or $350.00 as a pair includes all their Vet work, Kennels, blankets, toys, leash, collar/harness, new beds, bags of dog food, treats and lots of information to help your adoption start off on the right paw forward.

We will also include a new DVD from Animal Planet entitled: "Training Your Adopted Dog" with lots of great information.

Because we are a foster based, home environment group an “Application For Adoption” must be completed.
Please visit our web site or contact me if you have any specific questions about Cola and would like his "Application For Adoption".

Why Adoption is a Great Option

COLA AND PEBBLES, a Elk River Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) for sale in Elk River, or seeking a Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) dog from a breeder in Elk River.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Elk River already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Elk River breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) breeders who help with Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Elk River paves the way for another one to be saved.
