Hi … my name is Penny, and I'm a FEMALE STANDARD POODLE, and here are some things you should know about me:
Adoption fee is $600
Breed: Standard Poodle
Approximate age/birthdate: 2 ½ 4/2014
Up-to-date on routine vaccinations: YES
Heartworm Status: Negative and on monthly preventative
Weight/size: Med 37lbs, but needs more weight
Crate trained: NO
Fenced yard required: YES
Jump fences: NO
Leash walk: Needs work, she pulls
Obedience training: NO
Rides well in vehicles: CRATED
Personality: Starts out mellow in the house, loves to lounge around, but yet loves to go for nice long walks and play with large dogs or kids. Penny loves kids of all ages. She cannot be around ANY small animals, they trigger her prey drive and she will pull with all her might to get to them while on leash. Yet when inside or her fenced yard she is calm, cuddly, gentle and also eager to play. She does great in a fenced yard where she loves playing fetch and being with other large dogs and kids make her extremely happy. Penny would benefit greatly with a home which is very active in walking or jogging at least an hour or so daily. She is used to a 45 - 1 hour brisk jog in the morning and a brisk walk 30-45 mins in the evening.
Energy level: Med-High
Social with other dogs: NOT SMALL DOGS AT ALL, BUT LOVES LARGE DOGS
Social with cats: NO
Grooming: She will need regular brushing and grooming, so this should be considered as an expense if owning a dog of this breed.
Good with children: YES
History: Unfortunately, Penny came from a horrific situation out of state. She was purchased to breed, but thank goodness that never happened. She was so matted (7-10”) so you couldn’t even touch her skin. She first lived indoors, but hardly ever groomed, then her family moved and she lived outdoors, never groomed again until we got her. She’s only been groomed 3 times in her life, but does great for the groomer.
WE DO REQUIRE A HOME WITH EITHER CHILDREN, AND/OR ANOTHER LARGE BREED DOG THAT IS PLAYFUL. A stay at home Mom would be ideal so she isn’t left alone in a home or kennel all day. We will NOT adopt to a home being an only dog and kids or no one home most of the time. Please do not apply if this is your situation.
If you think might be the perfect pet for you /family, please email PAWSAVER4U@GMAIL.COM for an application.
SSR DOES NOT ALLOW THE USE OF ELECTRIC/INVISIBLE OR UNDERGROUND FENCES OR SHOCK COLLARS OF ANY KIND. IF YOU ADOPT AND WE FIND THAT ANY OF THIS IS BEING USED, THE CANINE WILL BE TAKEN BACK INTO RESCUE.
We are an all-volunteer group, so please be patient and understand that it takes an average of 7-14 days to process the applications including reference checks, follow-up questions and home visits. You can expedite the process by providing accurate email addresses for all your references. Time to make phone calls is limited and we often have multiple applications in process, so emails are much preferred. We make every effort to move through them as quickly as possible. We do NOT adopt to families with animals which have not been spayed/neutered.
When your application is approved, we will schedule a home visit. If it seems that the adoption will be a good match for all, an adoption contract to be signed, and there is an adoption fee to be paid.
All adopters must be 21 or older. Once the preliminary application is approved a home visit is required to complete the adoption process. All adopters must enter into a legal and binding contract upon completion of the adoption.
