Tripp's Story...
My name is Tripp and I'm a 3 year old male 16 pound poodle/terrier mix who is looking for my forever home. I was a stray in Collin county who was brought to the shelter. They discovered I had an old injury on my back right leg that was causing me issues walking. I wasn't able to use that leg anyway since it had atrophied and stiffened and was crossing under my body getting in the way. They decided to remove the leg and I couldn't be happier. I get around so much better now. I get along great with my foster brothers both big and small. I am a friendly guy who would be very happy sitting by you while you pet me. I cannot get enough of that. I sleep in my crate during the night and when my foster family is away. I am pretty sure I'm housebroken since I have not had an accident yet in my first few days in foster care (knock on wood). I'm a sweet and good natured boy. I will make an all around great family member for just about any situation. For more on how to adopt adorable me, please email

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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