SAMSON's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

SAMSON's Story...
"SAMSON" greatly enjoyed his bath, new hair cut and the loving attention we have been able to give him. Do you see a smile with hope in his eyes?

Samson’s Vet visit went well. His blood work was good. There was no problem with his neuter. He was heartworm tested negative, micro chipped, shots are up to date, worming was done and his black with rot teeth were cleaned.

17 teeth were pulled; some stitches were required. He is very thin, has luxating patella's in both knees and a bit of arthritis in both legs. A good vitamin and some good dog food has been used to fatten him up. Samson loves men and older children, but please no small children or large dogs.

Samson is very quiet, extremely sweet, gentle senior Poodle who gets along with all our Poodles. He is learning about living in a home.

He greatly enjoys rolling over to scratch his back and then curling up on our doggie cushions.
This sweet boy will go up and down steps and greatly enjoys our fenced in back yard and will quickly come back into the home. He is so excited to be back into our home!

Housetraining has begun. I do watch him constantly as it usually takes 2-3 months for these male dogs to learn acceptable house manners, but it can be done!

He continues to beg to sit in my lap while I watched TV. I picked him up and he quickly settled in right next to me. He then placed his head on my arm and looked directly into my face. I could see that he wanted to thank me. Samson is waiting for his "forever more" family to adopt him now.

Samson's $250.00 adoption fee helps pay for just some of his Vet expenses.

Also included in his adoption fee will be a kennel, a bag of dog food, some toys, leash collar, soft coat, a new bed along with lots of information to help your adoption start off on the right paw forward.

Samson enjoying the attention and play time of "Barbara Ann" as pictures on our web site. You can also see how Samson holds his head up, is filling in and his bones are not showing as much as they did when he first arrived.

And look! He holds his tail up high now as he enjoys being the center of attention. What a handsome boy Samson is becoming!

Samson and Delilah (who has been adopted) came from Marti with the Wisconsin "One Starfish Rehoming Connections" who deals with many of the Wisconsin Amish Puppy farmers. One of those farmers took two "house" poodles away from family members who were not taking care of their dogs.

The Poodles did not have names, so Marti did provide their new names "Samson" and "Delilah".

As Marti's heart-breaking pictures of "Samson" show on our web site, he is very thin (9 pounds) neglected and has been an unloved Poodle all his 10 years of life.

This Poodle deserves a loving home, good food and a soft bed for the remaining years he has left.

NOTICE: Because Samson is older, has been neglected all his life and is a puppy mill rescue, we know that very few people are interested in adopting him any time soon. Also, Samson needs a home a quieter home than what we offer here, so we are looking for someone willing to do some long-term foster care work for him.

You MUST live close to Elk River so that our Vet can provide any needed Vet work and so that I do not have to drive far to deliver food or pick him up for grooming.
Please contact me if you are interested in providing Samson a long-term foster home. Thank you....

Why Adoption is a Great Option

SAMSON, a Elk River 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 Elk River, or seeking a Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) dog from a breeder in Elk River.

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