SIR SAMPSON's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

SIR SAMPSON's Story...
SIR SAMPSON is a 5 yr old standard poodle who weighs about 66 lbs. He likes children and adults, but we would not recommend him in a home with very young children as he is large and active and be a bit rough when he is playing.

SIR SAMPSON is a great dog, although he does have small prey aggression. This may sound frightening but it only means that his instinct to hunt is very strong. Poodles were originally were bred for hunting, thus his high prey drive. Our wish for him is to find a family without small animals, small dogs or cats and owners that would not view him as broken; instead they would work with him to teach him to curve his instincts and live peacefully with little critters. Other large dogs would be great for him if they want to play!

To some that sounds like a tall order but we believe in him and will wait for an experienced owner to give him a chance. Most standards just need to be loved and cared for, to become the sweet, smart, loving creatures that they are!

SIR SAMPSON is being fostered in PALM BEACH county. To learn more about adopting him, go to http://www.coastalpoodlerescue.org/poodles/poodledetail.cfm?DogID=1454

Why Adoption is a Great Option

SIR SAMPSON, 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.
