Facts about Rizzo

  • Breed: Poodle (Miniature) Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Meet Rizzo! He is a 2 year old, male, 15lb large Miniature Poodle. He would love a home with a fenced yard or an adopter that can provide him plenty of exercise. He loves his toys and is great at playing fetch. We are looking for an experienced adopter for him who can work in building his confidence in new situations with new people. His adopter will need to commit to working with a professional trainer to work on his fear issues which come across as aggression initially. Because of his fear we are looking to place him in a home without children. He prefers women over men, but in time will warm up to men. Once he trusts you he is a huge love bug and loves snuggling. He gets along with other calm, self confident, non-reactive dogs and cats. He is very smart and already knows some commands- like sit and paw. He does not like to be crated, but has been non-destructive in his foster home when left uncrated. Are you the perfect family for him? Application and reference checks are required. Rizzo's adoption fee of $250 helps cover the cost of his vet care.

If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application, which can be found on our website at under the Adoption Process tab. All dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm tested (age appropriate), fecal tested and/or dewormed, and microchipped.

About Perfect Pooches Adoption Agency

About Our Rescue Group...

A rescue organization dedicated to helping you locate and adopt your "perfect" pooch.
No one, or nothing, is perfect....this includes dogs, but we firmly believe that there is a "perfect" dog for everyone. This doesn't mean our dogs will not have accidents in the house, or bark at times you don't want them to, or chew on your good shoes. They are dogs and they will require training and structure, but their flaws make them truly unique, beautiful, and "perfect" for the right family.

Perfect Pooches Adoption Agency (PPAA) is dedicated to working with each family to ensure we try to find a dog that will be a match with your lifestyle, needs, and wants. If we do not currently have a dog that is a match we will do our best to help approved adopters locate a dog that would be a better fit.

Our pooches are rescue dogs that deserve a second chance. Please consider opening your heart and home to a new companion today!
