GIBBS's Story...
GIBBS is a 4 yr old, apricot-colored standard poodle. He weighs about 45 - 50 lbs and is a very gentle and loving dog. He was rescued from a backyard breeder who never socialized him properly, and so GIBBS needs a very understanding new home. He is not aggressive, and doesn't have a mean bone in his body. He's just very shy.

GIBBS also came into rescue very underweight and under-exercised. His foster mom says he has made tremendous progress towards his whole foster family and he is eating better and getting up to his needed weight. He now plays more with the other dogs and his favorite toy (a towel).

GIBBS should not go to a home with small children as he is easily intimidated and withdraws.
His foster family have shown him it's ok to trust people, but he will always be very shy. His new home should be one where there is NOT a lot of traffic (people coming and going all the time) as this makes him very nervous.

GIBBS is very healthy and he is fully housebroken. He is currently fostered in BROWARD county. To learn more about adopting him, check out his webpage at http://www.coastalpoodlerescue.org/poodles/poodledetail.cfm?DogID=1330

Why Adoption is a Great Option

GIBBS, a Melbourne 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 Melbourne, or seeking a Poodle (Standard) dog from a breeder in Melbourne.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Melbourne 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 Melbourne 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 Melbourne paves the way for another one to be saved.
