Desophina, "Desi" is a cute little girl. She is happy to be petted and will follow you all about the house. She loves belly rubs and will roll easily on her back to have you rub her belly. She likes toys and knows how to find one and show it to you when you come in the door. She is housebroken and crate trained. She is not the best with other dogs, her first reaction is to be aggressive, even if she just hears a dog moving close by she has an aggressive reaction. You can talk to her to calm her down and then she can be closer to the new dog, but introductions should start with both dogs on a leash. She loves her food and is starting to put on some needed weight. She is fully blind due to cataracts and does have masses in three of her breasts, it seems that she has had puppies in the past. She will be spayed in September 2010 and will have at least two mastectomies.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Desophina (Desi), a Wilmington Poodle (Standard) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Standard) for sale in Wilmington, or seeking a Poodle (Standard) dog from a breeder in Wilmington.

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