Petey's Story...
Petey was brought in as a stray, found wandering near Lake Billy Chinook campground. He was extremely scared, his ungrounded fur badly matted, and very dirty and smelly. Petey was super fearful and spent a few days on the back of his kennel growling at us. Good thing Petey loves treats! With patience, lots of treats, and nothing but kindness, we have won him over. He now eagerly jumps in our laps, allows us to pick him up, and even tolerated a grooming. He is great with other dogs of all sizes and cats, but because he is a fear biter, we do not want him to be in a home with small children. When he does fear bite, he does not puncture or leave marks, but let's be honest, when he's scared, biting works to increase distance! If you have the patience to let this love bug get to know you at his own pace, and know how to deal with a dog that isn't a social butterfly (at first) maybe Petey will be your new best friend. The vet aged him at about 9-10 years old. He does love to go for walks, though, and is very good on the leash.

Pupdate - Petey wins the award for "most improved!" He has been so social, out going and friendly to strangers. We no longer see any apprehension or warnings of fear biting. He has done a total turnaround and now feels safe and secure again. Check out his video, this was shot of him meeting 2 strangers. He also has been spending time in the front office and no marking!! Woohoo!

Petey's adoption fee is $75 and includes neuter, current vaccines, microchip, free vet visit, 30 days free pet health insurance, and custom engraved ID tag.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Petey, a Madras 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 Madras, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Madras.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Madras 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 Madras 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 Madras paves the way for another one to be saved.
