SABIAN's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

SABIAN's Story...
We learned that his real name is "SABIAN" (pronounced say-be-an) and had been with this family for his entire 14 years of life. Born 07/06/2001.

When at the Pound, his family came forward, but no longer want him as now they have no time. They have chosen to turn their backs and walk away from him.

Fine. They don't need this little loving little boy who has given his entire life to them!

For his age, Sabian is in surprisingly great shape! His eyes are cloudy, but he can see just fine to get around. Hearing is selective but just call "treat time" and watch him come a running!

He loves his food and treats, enjoys his bed and is very quiet, except when I leave. He needs to be around people or will bark wondering "HEY!! Where is everyone?"

HIS STORY: Sabian had been found wandering the streets before being picked up the Elk River Police and taken to our Pound for the legal waiting period.

Yet, even with his brand new collar, his family never came forward or called looking for him until after Picket Fence Poodle Rescue was called.

We picked him up just in time to celebrate our (and his) freedom during this past 4th of July week-end!

He was thought to be 8 - 10 years of age and had been given the name of "GEORGE" in honor of our first President. We have since kept his name as "Sabian" for that is his name.

Upon arrival to us, he looked a bit scruffy (pictured on our web site). But after a bath and shave down we found a silver beige Toy Poodle, neutered, long in body, 10" tall and weighs a healthy 10 pounds.

When I am home, this little Poodle is very quiet, trusting, loves being with all our Poodles and follows us all over the house.

It's clearly obvious that he wants to be with people, even after his family abandoned him! Could you?

He is fine with our grand-children and loves to go for walks. Such a sweet, gentle, loving boy.

When I am not home, we quickly learned that Sabian absolutely just HATES to be in a kennel. He makes a noise and puts up a ruckus. Not sure why and rarely see this as most dogs just love their kennel.

So, against our rules and regulations, when I am not home, Sabian is allowed to run free with a belly band on. Casey has been a perfect boy while I am gone and he keeps Sabian company with no problems.

Sabian has learned to be in kennel at night and will sleep quietly in our bedroom; he just doesn't like to be alone. This is a little dog who NEEDS a person.

UPDATE: Sabian's Vet visit went fairly well. We learned that he tested positive for Lyme's and Anaplasma.

Blood work-up showed no resulting problems, so we are treated him for these two tic related illnesses with a 30 day prescription of Doxycycline.

An x-ray showed a kidney stone, which was easily removed. No big deal! In fact, I am sure he will probably be feeling a LOT better.

Sabian is such a gentle, loving, soft, quiet Poodle that the x-ray also showed a “big heart”. With that, we know this Toy Poodle's time with us is limited. All his Vet work is done. Nothing more needs or can be done.

We ask for at least a $100.00 donation adoption fee to help us pay for his large Vet expenses.

OR long term “hospices care” for Sabian is an option. In that situation, you provide care and love. Picket Fence Poodle Rescue would provide only his grooming, dog food, treats and heart-worm medication.

When Sabian's life becomes to painful or difficult to continue, we (or you) will hold him while our Vet gently and painlessly puts him into his last sleep. Then when Sabian awakes, he will be in Our God's loving arms!

Not easy for anyone to do. But when is doing the right thing ever easy?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

SABIAN, 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.
