NINA's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.

NINA's Story...
"NINA" IS DOING JUST FINE AND YES, SHE IS STILL AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION. This little silver female is an amazing and special Toy Poodle who is very alert, active, sociable and outgoing. She is very interested in everything and everyone despite all that she has endured. She is 10" tall and loves her food, so she now weighs a chunky 10 pounds.

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". The video below shows how much fun this little girl can be with the right friend.

Nina's $200.00 adoption fee (includes the $14.00 Minnesota state sales tax) will also include some of her past Vet records, a kennel, blanket, a new dog bed, leash, collar, a winter coat, some treats, various toys and a bag of special dog food required by dogs who have had bladder stone issues (pictured on our web site).

OK. I can also include one of those Christmas Cactus plants (cuttings) from my big, old Christmas Cactus (also pictured on my site). Nina has been 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.

YES NINA IS A "SPECIAL NEEDS" POODLE who has "selective" hearing, clouded eyes (she can see just fine!), needs a special dog kibble, needs to be let outside every 4-5 hours and needs a medication called "DES" (Diethylstilbestrol) which is working GREAT for her incontinence!

However, this doesn't make her a bad Poodle, but just ONE SPECIAL LITTLE GIRL who would like to have a loving home with open arms of love as she now enters her senior years.

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.

As pictured, when she's not playing with the toys, Nina enjoys her soft and special doggie bed!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

NINA, a Elk River Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) for sale in Elk River, or seeking a Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) dog from a breeder in Elk River.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Elk River 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 Elk River 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 (Toy or Tea Cup) breeders who help with Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Elk River paves the way for another one to be saved.
