Scruffy's Story...
Scruffy is looking for a special home and preferably with retired active seniors who can give her the love and attention that she needs and deserves. She was found abandoned at the end of a farm driveway recently. Filthy and trembling with fear. When we had her vetted, it was realized that maybe some of the trembling was related to pain. The fur around her mouth was stained a dark brown. The interior of her mouth and throat was an angry red like a caustic material had burned the tissue. The vet commented that he had never seen such a sad condition for a dog. Her teeth were in terrible shape, broken, infected and six were pulled. The exam further revealed bilateral ear infections as well. Surprisingly she was found to have been spayed. She weighs a mere 14.5 pounds, but is not thin. Her age was estimated to be 5 - 8 years old. She was sent back to the shelter with pain medication, antibiotics and ear medication. She can eat only soft food. She knows nothing of walking with a collar and a leash and must have a fenced in yard for a small dog. She is still a bit fearful and for that reason, we hope she will be adopted to a quiet home. If you have the time, love and compassion for the poodle breed, please contact this site. This little lady might be a diamond in the rough. UPDATE: Scruffy's visit to the vet shows that her condition is improving and she will continue on antibiotics for another 14 days.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Scruffy, a Glenwood Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) for sale in Glenwood, or seeking a Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) dog from a breeder in Glenwood.

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