Facts about PICO

  • Breed: Poodle (Miniature)
  • Color: White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 1259
PICO is a 10-yr old, 16-lb cream poodle with apricot highlights. He wants to be with his humans, and doesn't like to be left alone. PICO has only one eye, and it has a condition of 'dry eye' where he has trouble making tears. As a result, his eyesight is failing and he does require over-the counter eyedrops several times a day. This can be taught to his new owner if they don't have specific experience with eyedrops in dogs. Also, he will need to see an eye doctor a couple of times per year to ensure there is no further damage to his eye.

PICO loves to be petted especially behind the ears. Let him sit in your lap and relax. He is a little nervous and does bark when he hears noise/voices as he has trouble seeing and this is concerning for him. Can be protective, again due to vision issue but otherwise very friendly fellow. Once he gets to know you he is a real love and likes to be with you all the time.

No kids under 10 yrs old, as he can get startled and may nip young kids (due to vision issues only) but is a great lap dog. Needs to have someone diligent w/ eye meds. He gets along with other dogs too.

PICO is currently being fostered in BREVARD county. To learn more about adopting him, go to http://www3.coastalpoodlerescue.org/poodles/poodledetail.cfm?DogID=1259

About Coastal Poodle Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Coastal Poodle Rescue was officially established on March 8, 2004 by a small group of dedicated volunteers who, combined, have decades of experience with statewide and local rescue efforts.
The number of abandoned and abused poodles in our local area was increasing at a disturbing rate. Therefore, we decided the best way to assist these animals was to form a regional rescue group.

We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. We are 100% volunteer-run, which means overhead costs are minimal and your donation is put to direct use for the good of the dogs. We do not receive government funds. We are entirely supported by charitable donations. We concentrate our activities in the eastern, coastal corridor of Florida from Duval to Dade County.

Our Adoption Process...

Our goal is to make wise and permanent placements for each poodle. Think about it: all of our dogs have been abandoned at least once in their lives.
Minimum donations are between $150 and $400, depending on the age and health of the dog, among other factors.
In most cases, this does not begin to cover the medical expenses incurred. All dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and tested for heartworms and intestinal parasites.

What to Know About Our Adoptions:

NOTE: WE ALMOST NEVER HAVE PUPPIES AND VERY, VERY RARELY GET YOUNG DOGS!

A donation to Coastal Poodle Rescue, Inc. is required to adopt a poodle.
Home visits and interviews help us determine the kind of dog that will best fit your home environment and lifestyle.
Filling out an adoption profile does not guarantee adoption nor does it obligate you to adopt a poodle. Some dogs have special needs, so not all dogs will be a good match for every home.
Compatible poodles may not be immediately available; your patience is appreciated.
Most dogs in rescue are adults; puppies are rarely, if ever, available.
Most dogs in rescue are male...females are less common.
Remember, the more restrictions you place upon your desired dog (color, age, sex, etc.), the longer it will take to find a suitable poodle to match your environment.
By submitting an Adoption Profile, you are making a formal request to adopt a dog from Coastal Poodle Rescue, Inc. Please consider carefully before submitting your Profile. We encourage you to discuss the matter with all your family members.
