Sit down and she will jump into your arms. What to go for a walk? Just grab a leash and she’ll be ready to go to the end of the world with you. Ready for some kisses? Even as a senior Poodle (born September 26, 2006), Nina is still very active and has a lot to share with you.
Nina arrived at Picket Fence Poodle Rescue after enduring an emergency surgery at The Blaine Central Veterinary Clinic to remove an exceptionally large bladder stone. The surgery was needed to save this little Poodle’s life.
Sadly, Nina’s family could not afford to care for her and this expensive surgery. So she was surrendered to the clinic where Lesley stepped forward to help pay for the bill and took care of Nina before surrendering this little Toy Poodle to us. What a miracle was that? And you don’t see heroes in this world?!!
This little special girl also had her teeth cleaned with only a few teeth pulled. She was treated for a bladder infection and ear infections. Finally, she was shaved naked because she had various sores and skin irritations due to her urine soaked and matted fur. Not to worry! She is now doing just fine and her hair is growing back!
Despite all of this, Nina continues to be a wonderful, loving and gentle Poodle who loves to play with the toys and greatly enjoys being with people. Could you do that?
Nina IS getting along with most all of our Poodles and will play with them. But there are a few Poodles (specifically our show Poodles) she does NOT like. It would be best that Nina be adopted as an only dog or with another dog who can tolerate her.
We do know that she greatly enjoys and will play with “Niko” “Sophie” and the young puppy “Pippin”. Video below shows how much fun this little girl can be with the right friend.
Recently, we had more tests done which all came back normal! YEAH! Nina is now Vet check healthy, she has been wormed, all her shots are up to date, heart-worm tested negative and placed on a preventative, Home Again micro chipped and registered.
Nina’s $200.00 adoption fee (plus $14.00 Minnesota state sales tax) will include some of her past Vet records, a kennel, blanket, a new dog bed, leash, collar, a winter coat, some treats, various toys, a bag of special dog food required by dogs who have had bladder stone issues (pictured left) and a jar of Proin 50 which we know helps to prevent leaking.
OK. As pictured on our web site, I can also include one of those Christmas Cactus plants (cuttings) from my big, old Christmas Cactus.
Yes!! NINA IS HEALTHY, but yet a special needs Poodle who would like to be in her own home with her own family this Christmas. While Nina had been with young children, she would enjoy being in a family without children now.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about this outgoing, sociable and WONDERFUL little girl. When she’s not playing with the toys, Nina enjoys her soft and special doggie bed!
