Josh's Story...
Update 3/9/2016: Josh remains shy and timid around humans. Can be nippy with other dogs, so perhaps being an only dog would make him happier. Josh is now 8 yrs old and weighs about 30 lbs. Josh continues to avoid human contact but will stay close by his person. Just don’t try to pick him up and he is pretty content. Josh needs a family who will not have any expectations for him, just keep him safe, warm and a full tummy. He will reward you with his quiet presence.

Original Listing: Josh was recently released from a commercial breeding facility, Josh is a light apricot poodle whose age was given as 7 yrs . He currently weighs approx 12lbs. Josh is a work in progress. Not house trained and loves to mark. Josh has some aggression issues where he postures like he is going to charge and bite. He does this with humans as well as the other dogs in the house. He has never bitten me, but I am careful not to challenge him when he is in this frame of mind. Josh will approach for pets and ear scratching, but only on his terms. Josh is ready for adoption to a home with no children and needs to be the only dog. He requires a lot of patience and no immediate expectations. Josh has come a long way since his release in August of 2013, but has a long way to go. A fenced yard will be a must. If you are interested in Josh, go to and submit an application. NO PHONE CALLS

Adoption donation is $200.00

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Josh, a Homer Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise for sale in Homer, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise dog from a breeder in Homer.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Homer 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 Homer 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 (Miniature)/Bichon Frise breeders who help with Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Homer paves the way for another one to be saved.
