Lance is now available for adoption.
Lance is a four year old Male Standard Poodle and the sweetest gentleman you will meet, look at that face and those eyes! Lance has everything you would want in a Standard Poodle, a sense of humor, loves everyone, obedience trained, so affe...ctionate and even lived previously with a cat and loves children.
Lance has a sad story which needs to be told.
Lance has Sebaceous Adenitis (SA) which is an autoimmune disease which attacks the sebaceous glands of the hair follicles. So this is not a disease that anyone can catch, it is not life shortening and can be maintained and controlled for the most part with moisturizing baths and vitamin therapy. S.A... is very misunderstood and there is currently no known cure once the immune system breaks down in this area.
So we got a call literally by fate from Sara at a local shelter where Lance had been surrendered. I say by fate because I had to call that particular shelter the previous day for something and our name had been passed on to Sara as a Poodle Rescue. We are Toy Poodle Rescue so no-one would normally call us for a Standard Poodle, but Sara was desperate to save Lance's life. The reality is if you rescue this breed you know most of the Poodle people and develop a repertoire of contacts. We got the call from the shelter and I immediately made two calls and within half an hour Lance was safe! The shelter were going to euthanize him, because they could not give him the care he needed or the cost of getting him to a healthy place. Two other local Poodle Rescue groups had declined to take him and he was going to be euthanized!
Lance has been well trained in his previous home, he listens well and has puppy like playful behavior. His foster Mom calls him a character full of personality, he loves other dogs, he is a gentle giant at 51lbs (Ok we are used to the 10lb ones so he's a giant to us). Lance is looking for someone who will commit to his vitamin and skin therapy, which we think went undiagnosed for a long time. A person who see's past the skin issue and see's Lance for the wonderful dog he is with a fantastic personality, they will be very lucky to get this Poodle.
We are asking for donations to help provide what he needs to get his skin healthy. Thank you!

Poodles need to go to a professional groomer every 6-8 weeks at a cost of about $50, so please factor that into the costs associated with dog ownership.
