Rizzo's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and not good with dogs.

Rizzo's Story...
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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rizzo, a Romeoville 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 Romeoville, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Romeoville.

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