HOP ALONG HOBIE's Story...
Meet Hop-a-long Hobie, a 7 yr old, 22 lb poodle/bichon mix who is a bundle of energy despite his name. He is called hop a long because he has deformed right shoulder, probably from an injury as a puppy that didn't heal correctly. This does not slow him down or stop him from jumping around and bounding up/down stairs. This boy is always happy, happy, happy.

HOBIE loves any stuffed toy that he can thrash around and toss up into the air. He also loves lots and lots of scratches on his chest. He gets along with other dogs, but really loves his human. He needs a home who will appreciate a lovable, bundle of energy and give him the love and attention he seeks. Would be ideal as an only dog if possible. He could also benefit from some basic obedience training. He is a true love bug!

HOBIE is currently being fostered in MARTIN county. To learn more about adopting her, go to www3.coastalpoodlerescue.org/poodles/poodledetail.cfm?dogID=1147

Why Adoption is a Great Option

HOP ALONG HOBIE, a Melbourne Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise for sale in Melbourne, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise dog from a breeder in Melbourne.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Melbourne 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 Melbourne 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 (Miniature)/Bichon Frise breeders who help with Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Melbourne paves the way for another one to be saved.
