Diamond's Story...

Date Posted:January 18, 2010


Date Adopted:


Adoption Donation: $200.00 for both Diamond and Heaven


All About Me:

I was rescued from a puppy mill with 4 other poodles. My owners had 47 poodles that they were breeding. Yes, we are all old but that does not stop greedy people from trying to make money off of our puppies. We flew in a private airplane from Washington, NC to Morganton, NC for Healing Hearts Small Animal Rescue to pick us up and take us into their rescue and foster care program.

My foster mom has decided that Heaven and I need to be adopted together. We really love each other and seek each others comfort. We also love other dogs and cats. We both have bilateral cataracts so we have very limited vision but that does not stop us from following our foster mom around the house. Once we learn the layout of the house we get along just fine. We both crave human attention and just want a warm lap to curl up in during the day and a soft bed at night. We like to go for car rides. Our foster mom says we are the best girls in the world because we were easy to potty train and we are also crate trained. We are both estimated to be 10 years old.

All known information about our dogs is listed under notes. We do not know how big a puppy will grow to be in adulthood. Please research the particular breed to see if this pet may be a good choice as a new member of your family.

Your first step in adopting a new family member is to fill out the free online adoption application. The adoption form must be filled out completely with phone numbers and a vet reference before it will be processed. Your application will not be processed without this information.

We sometimes receive many applications on one dog. Our goal is to place the dog in the best home possible based on his/her needs, personality and past history. Please note that adoptions are NOT done on a first come, first serve basis, and filling out an application does not guarantee the adoption of any dog. We reserve the right to refuse any applicant for inaccurate or false information. We are looking for the best possible home for this animal. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Diamond, a Old Fort Poodle (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature) for sale in Old Fort, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Old Fort.

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