Please contact Constance (connibouchard@gmail.com) for more information about this pet.Rescued dogBiography Important Information Please read! If you are interested in me after reading about me, please visit my site, http://www.breederadoptions.org and follow the instructions. The majority of the dogs we rescue, mostly breeder dogs, have lived their entire lives in less-than-ideal conditions so will need to be socialized, house and leash trained. Most have never lived in a house, walked on a leash, had a treat or sat in a lap. For many of them, their feet have never touched the ground after living for years on wire until they arrive at our main facility where they are evaluated, groomed and given vet care. Most of these dogs are not socialized and need to be cornered to be picked up, so are not suitable for people with physical disabilities or suffer from PTSD. They need folks who will make them the center of their world and help them learn to trust before even attempting to train.  Please do not apply if you do not meet the requirements of the dogs we rescue.  However, they will learn with time, love, patience and most of all, commitment. You must have an ample supply of all of these to reap the rewards of watching these very special dogs become your wonderful companion. We state any known health issues, all are altered unless there is a medical reason not to, which we will advise, any known medical issues addressed, are microchipped, are UTD on all vaccines and have been checked out by at least one veterinarian, usually two. We do not guarantee the health of any of our rescued dogs. The dogs we rescue have lived with other dogs all of their lives and most get along with other dogs. We state if they are dog aggressive. We require a permanent, full-time parent. That means you must be able to spend the majority of your time with your new companion to socialize and train. We do not, under any circumstances, place them in homes with young children as they have not been exposed to children and we do not know how they will react.  Hi! My name is Cookie, and I am a sweet Poodle girl who was born 1/29/22, and I weigh 5 pounds. I have a sister Honey, also 5 pounds, whom I adore so we are looking for a home together with no other dogs. I  need a quiet home with no children or cats and a secure, fenced in yard, no chain link or iron, as we are escape artists but must have room to run and play; no apartment living, please.  We are not potty trained nor are we leash trained. We lived in a breeding cage our first year so we will need an experienced adopter in an adult home only, who has ample time, patience and love to teach us how to be the perfect pets/companions we were always meant to be. We are sweet, social and very loving. A home visit is required and in state AZ, adoptions, only. If you have been waiting for a sweet Poodle, please ask for me on your application to http://www.breederadoptions.org. Love, Cookie 012223-13 and Honey 012223-12  April 15, 2024, 3:33 pm

My name is Bear, and I am a sweet, senior Jack Russell Terrier who is 10 years old, and I weigh 13 pounds. I have lived in confinement my whole life, and I can be shy at first, so I need a quiet home where I can live out my life enjoying all the things I have missed. A home visit is required with all members of the family. If you have been waiting for a sweet JRT, please ask for me on your application to http://www.breederadoptions.org.

My name is Karma, and I am a little Maltese girl who was born 8/29/16, and I weigh 6 pounds. I need a quiet home with a sibling to learn from and play with. I have been shaved for hygiene reasons, but my hair will grow out and I will be beautiful again. No large dogs and no small children, please. Grandkids that visit and are gentle is fine.
