Twila entered foster care last week and is showing everyone how fantastic older dogs can be. Twila is 7 years old and a big girl, but she seems to be in tip top shape all around -- her joint flexibility and teeth are in great condition.
The amazing thing is that this girl was given up at all. She is extremely smart, already knowing sit, come, down, shake, kiss, speak (at that's not even a bark at full volume), and easy (while walking on leash). When we call her a big girl it's no understatement. Despite being in a home with average to large standard poodles she outsizes and outweighs them by a good margin, likely tipping the scales around 80 pounds. Twila has been taught before entering care that she isn't to lay on furniture. Even at the offer she has refused and laid on the floor near her foster mom; she does like to stay close to you.
Twila was a little stressed in the crate, so she's already trained her foster mom (yep, you read that right) that she's fine being left loose in the house when home without human supervision. She has also joined the resident dogs in sleeping in the human's bedroom at night, but again, she refuses furniture (even the large dog bed) and lays next to the bed on the floor.
Twila has been respectful with the respectful small resident dog in her foster home, though we know she has had issues with chasing cats, so her prey drive may not make her a great candidate to be housemates with cats, birds, or other small pets, even yappy little dogs who like to run away from big dogs, and we assume chickens and livestock wouldn't be a good pairing either. We will try to assess her at a dog park for more details the dogs and personalities she gets along with best.
Twila needs a new rabies shot in another couple days, but is otherwise adoption ready. We, of course, don't know where in her lineage Labrador fits in, but she certainly has the smarts and coat of a Standard Poodle. That feature will be a huge benefit to anyone who suffers from being allergic to dogs (like her foster mom). Her coat will, however, require regular professional grooming to keep it from matting and causing health problems. With a dog her size that can be an expensive requirement.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

TWILA- ADOPTION PENDING, a Hurricane Poodle (Standard)/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Standard)/Labrador Retriever for sale in Hurricane, or seeking a Poodle (Standard)/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Hurricane.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hurricane 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 Hurricane 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 (Standard)/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Poodle (Standard)/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hurricane paves the way for another one to be saved.
