Facts about LUCKY

  • Breed: Toy Poodle
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Lucky is looking for his “forever more family”. This is a very cute and rare black and white Miniature “Parti-Poodle” who is 13″ tall, weighs a healthy 14.25 pounds and was born July 14, 2006.

Past Vet records show that Lucky was extremely over weight at close to 18 pounds. But with daily walks and being fed a quality dog kibble (less needed), Lucky lost some weight and now certainly looks and feels much better!

Considering his age, Lucky is still VERY active, sociable and always ready to go for his daily ONE MILE walk with me! I’ve seen him run and play with a few squeaky toys and grab my socks that I leave on the floor and run off with them! HEY! Get back here with my socks! In the video (below) you can see Lucky likes to do that charging bull feet dance. Which means, he wants something!?

When I am home, Lucky has been quiet. However, he will let you know when someone is coming close to our home.

He REALLY enjoys going for a car ride, going for walks, will follow me around the house or will sit on the end of the chair. He has been a perfect gentleman in our home too.

He had never been kenneled before, but is doing OK in the crate I set up for him. OK….. So he hates his kennel, but he is such a sweet boy! Everyone at the Vet’s office and who comes into our home just loves him.

Lucky has been an only Poodle, so it would be best that he continues to be an only dog. While he is just fine with all of our Poodles, greatly enjoys playing with our grandchildren and even gets along with cats, we have seen that other dogs will pick on him!

He is a little shy around new people, but Lucky has been with people all his life. He needs to continue to be with a family where someone is home most of the time AND be able to share their bed at night with him. He is not happy about being left alone for any extended period of time and he will let you know.

At his Vet appointment blood work was done along with his neuter, heartworm testing, worming, teeth cleaning and Home Again microchip. Lucky previous had a 4DX test done, but we had another one done to eliminate Ehrlichia which may have been causing his joint pain. That test came back negative.

His blood work and a slide (microscope) check determine that all is “NORMAL”. But like the rest of us old people, tests showed that Lucky is dealing with arthritis. NOT a problem as we put him on “Natramax Dasuquin with MSM” which has proven to be most excellent for senior dogs. Think I should try some of that?

Lucky has certainly been a lucky Poodle his entire life. He had been deeply loved and well cared for by his Daddy. The two were always together and shared much happiness until his Daddy become ill and went to the hospital. From there he went into a nursing home where Lucky could not go.

Lucky then went to live with a beloved family member and her husband. They had hopes of keeping him with the idea that their father would be able to move into an assisted living apartment where he and Lucky would live together again.

Sadly, they did not see any chance of this happening so Lucky came to us in search of his new “forever more” family. Thank you, Carolyn and John. NOTE: I have found that Lucky now prefers to be with females! He likes my husband Mike, but always find me, curl up next to me when we are watching TV and will sleep next to me.

His $200.00 adoption fee (plus $14.00 Minnesota State Sales tax) will include some of his past Vet records, a kennel, blanket, a new dog bed, leash, collar, a winter coat, a bag of senior dog food, a bag of “Natramax Dasuquin with MSM” , some treats and various toys.

Please, no other dog or young children. Again, he has been Vet check healthy, neutered, teeth have been cleaned, he has been wormed, all his shots are up to date, he has been heart-worm tested negative and placed on a preventative, Home Again micro chipped and registered.

About Our Rescue Group...

PICKET FENCE POODLE RESCUE is a charitable and educational organization to rescue and supply Poodles with love, shelter, food, human companionship, medical care and spay-neuter services until permanent placement is secured into a pre-screened loving home, as long as the Poodle is not dangerous to humans or other dogs.

PICKET FENCE POODLE RESCUE will accept an adoptable Poodle who is either abandoned in a shelter, or purchased/rescued by any concerned person, or living with an owner who can no longer care for the Poodle. We also participate in rescue and placement of Poodles who are culled from Breeders or Puppy Mills.

PICKET FENCE POODLE RESCUE feels educating and informing the public about the commercial dog industry in America and about responsible pet ownership is very important as well as reviving the spirit of volunteerism in our great country.

PICKET FENCE POODLE RESCUE wishes to eliminate the euthanasia of any healthy, adoptable Poodles. We do not accept euthanasia as a means of population control for animals. We believe each Poodle's life is meaningful and each deserves a loving home. We take responsibility for each Poodle rescued and placed through Picket Fence Poodle Rescue for the rest of the dog's natural life.
