AJ!'s Story...
MEET AJ!

This lucky little fluffer is named AJ! AJ is a 12 year old, 13 lb. Poodle/Bichon mix who was originally surrendered to Philly's animal control shelter because his family couldn't afford to care for a pet. He lucked out and was rescued by City of Elderly Love, adopted to an amazing home, but recently returned due to a family emergency that would require his new mom to be out of the country for an extended period of time. AJ is back with his foster family and has settled right back in and is officially back on the market!

AJ is currently living with other dogs, both large and small, and children in his foster home! He loves spending time with his canine foster siblings and wrestles around appropriately with his pit bull foster sister. He also adores snuggling up next to the other dogs as well as his foster family on the couch. He has great energy and is both always up for an adventure, but also easy-going and loves a good nap. AJ loves meeting everyone regardless of their age or size - he's just happy to get attention! AJ gets along just fine with cats! AJ has had no trouble with housebreaking, especially since he gets frequent outdoor breaks and is on a typical daily schedule. He is now also crate trained for when his foster family is away from the house. AJ would basically be an easy addition to most families - could it be yours?

AJ received a veterinary work up when he came to the rescue and was also giving a haircut so he's looking even more handsome now! AJ received a dental cleaning under sedation at the vet and his blood work came back normal. AJ does have a Grade V heart murmur and takes daily medication to help him feel great. He's full of spunk and has lots of love left to give!

AJ is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love. He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He is also heartworm and lymes disease negative. Interested in adopting him?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

AJ!, a Philadelphia Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise for sale in Philadelphia, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise dog from a breeder in Philadelphia.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia 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 (Miniature)/Bichon Frise breeders who help with Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Philadelphia paves the way for another one to be saved.
