WINNIE's Story...
NOTE FROM GAIL: Winnie has been battling an ongoing bladder infection. We FINALLY got it under control and with the help of DES, she is not leaking. YEA!!!

AND she is doing much better after her recent episode with the "runs" We thought her kidneys were shutting down (related to Lymes), so it was a choice to euthanize her or do more tests. Ouch. $$$$ And you think my job as a Tax Accountant is hard??

Well, I chose more tests. We found that most everything is NORMAL for her age. Our Vet did find she has a high fever and an "infection". So after a week of anti-biotics, Winnie is now back to her normal wonderful self! What a survivor!

"WINNIE" THE POO(DLE) comes to us with a sad story. This past summer, the senior owner of Winnie and her mother, Diamond, was unable to care for her two beloved Standard Poodles.

Arrangements were made for the Poodles to come to Picket Fence Poodle Rescue; however a friend of the owner came forward and took both of the girls.

We never heard any more until a few weeks ago when this friend found that she could no longer care for the Poodles either. Arrangement were once again made for the Poodles to be surrendered to us.

Sadly, we could see that Diamond, the 16 year old mother, would not be able to survive another transfer, so she went to the arms of our great and loving God.

After Winnie arrived, we quickly learned that she was older than what were told: 12 years old (02/09/03).

On her birthday, she received a free trip to our Groomer, Lori of Lomar Poodles.

There Winnie was bathed, nicely groomed and received a new coat (pictured) which helped her deal with the loss of her life long friend; her mother.

OMG! Isn't she cute? What a special girl!! She is 25" tall (from the floor to her shoulders) and 56 lbs.

The few Vet records we received for Winnie show that she had not recently been seen by any Veterinarian.

Her teeth cleaned up nicely and two growths removed. They were sent into a laboratory were one was just "fat tissue" while the other lump tested cancerous.

PLEASE DO NOT PANIC! Our Vet removed much tissue, muscle and skin around that growth as she had already suspected it was not a healthy lump.

We feel that the cancer was completely removed. But just to make sure, we x-rays were taken which clearly show that there are no internal lumps or bumps!!

At this time, Winnie is cancer free. But, like everything else in this world, we do not know her future. Each day in her and YOUR life is a gift. That is why it is called the PRESENT!

I do understand that Winnie is a "Senior" Poodle. Despite her age, we do know that this IS a sweet, loving, gentle and perfectly charming Standard Poodle who has quickly worked her way into our hearts!

Winnie's mother was loved and lived a long happy life. We would like to give Winnie the same opportunity and find her a good, loving "forever more" family.

Winnie did have a bladder infection and test positive for Lymes which is a tick born disease. Both of these issues have been treated.

Winnie is quiet, slow moving and a gentle giant. It would be best that Winnie be adopted by a quiet family with no young children. She would enjoy other quiet dogs who enjoy the company another dog OR she is just fine by herself.

Winnie's adoption fee of $250.00 (plus Minnesota State sales tax of $18.00) helps pay for just some of her Vet work, including her surgery, testing, teeth cleaning, shots up to date, wormed, anti-biotics/

Also included is her leash, collar, a new large soft bed with a green blanket, a green coat, a bag of dog food, a bag of Dasuquin With MSM (Soft Chews), Home Again micro-chipped and registered along with lots of good information to help your adoption start off on the right paw forward.

Please contact me if you would like her "Application For Adoption" or if you are interested in doing a long term foster care for Winnie.

Winnie is now available for adoption. Please contact me if you would like her "Application For Adoption" or more information.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

WINNIE, a Elk River Standard Poodle dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Standard Poodle for sale in Elk River, or seeking a Standard Poodle 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 Standard Poodle breeders who help with Standard Poodle rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Elk River paves the way for another one to be saved.
