Story
Sophie will be part of our Pop Up Program (followyourheartanimalrescue.org/pop-up-pups) and available to adopt ONLINE ONLY on Thursday, July 11th at 5:00pm. You must be able to finalize his adoption on Saturday, July 13th. Sophie will be available to MEET ONLY on Saturday, July 6th at our Petsmart location (857 N Val Vista #106 , Gilbert, AZ 85234) from noon to 3:00PM.Meet SophieSophie is a black, almost 3 month old Standard Poodle. She initially came into the rescue after she was surrendered (with 12 other puppies and 3 adults) from a breeder who decided they were no longer going to continue breeding. While her coat is currently black, it's been suggested that as her undercoat continues to come through that she is going to be blue or silver in the end. The first thing that can be said about Sophie is that there is never a dull moment when she is around. She is a strong-willed, outgoing girl that you will never not notice. If you don't see or hear Sophie, that might mean that she's up to no good; when she's quiet, that's when it's time to be concerned. She loves to play with the other dogs and be where the commotion is. Sophie is not afraid to try new things (with the exception of fireworks - those are scary) and get in on the action. She's also happy to be a little poser when the camera comes out.She loves to be right there with you whenever she can. Sophie absolutely wants to be with those she considers her people. Depending on the person, she might verge on a tad bit too clingy but it's out of love. There isn't a person she's met that her first reaction hasn't been to approach them immediately. She's honestly a lovebug. That said, she is honestly someone who might develop a bit of separation anxiety if it's not nipped in the bud at an early age.Manners are a work in progress that she is determined to ignore ever existed. Even with repetition and positive reinforcement, she still chooses to do what she's not supposed to initially then will listen when she's corrected for those behaviors. She is a stubborn one for sure.Sophie does have a tendency to try and climb into laps when sitting down so she can get in someone's face for attention. Right now, she does not necessarily take "no" for an answer and can sometimes interpret certain actions as a game. This again is where her strong-willed personality comes into play. While she's small and somewhat manageable now but she won't always be this small. Like with most puppies, it is highly recommended that boundaries are set pretty quickly and obedience training is started at a young age.Potty training is hit or miss currently, which is to be expected considering she is still a young puppy. That said, she is doing far and away so much better than when she first came into her foster home. Those first few days were rough until she started to understand the routine of things. Puppy pad training is going great but she does seem to prefer to potty outside when she can. Since that's not always an option during the day with the heat, she has learned how to manage on pads. In the mornings, Sophie seems to be the one who is up with the sun and wants to make sure everyone is up with her. She's a persistent bugger who will let you know when she's ready to go outside in the morning to go potty but will also get distracted and take a detour to potty on the rug once she finally is out.Sophie and her sisters were around a cat for a week and based on the behaviors they exhibited, whether they can coexist with cat(s) in the home will depend on the cat(s)'s personality. She and her sisters seemed to like to follow, paw at, and try to play with the cat they met. They would take the cues when the cat told them to back off with a hiss and a swipe but would come back 5-10 minutes later and would do it all again. They didn't seem to chase with any intent, just wanted to try and get them to play. It took the cat disappearing or jumping to a place they couldn't get them until they finally stopped. With her sisters, it's all divebombs and bowling one another over. With dogs who are older and bigger, she likes to try to climb all over them and get in their faces. She is determined to get the others to like her but is more subtle about it than say her sister Willa. Depending on the dog, this is tolerated up to a point but she seems to be getting better about understanding the cues on when to stop.Whoever ends up adopting Sophie better prepare themselves for an interesting life because she seems determined to keep everyone around her on their toes. That's not necessarily a bad thing but life will never be dull or slow with Sophie around. Her sweet and determined demeanor will be like striking gold for someone who is looking for a smart, loyal girl to have as a companion.

Willa will be part of our Pop Up Program (followyourheartanimalrescue.org/pop-up-pups) and available to adopt ONLINE ONLY on Thursday, July 11th at 5:00pm. You must be able to finalize his adoption on Saturday, July 13th. Willa will be available to MEET ONLY on Saturday, July 6th at our Petsmart location (857 N Val Vista #106 , Gilbert, AZ 85234) from noon to 3:00PM.Meet WillaWilla is a black, almost 3 month old Standard Poodle. She initially came into the rescue after she was surrendered (with 12 other puppies and 3 adults) from a breeder who decided they were no longer going to continue breeding.Willa has the most youngest-sibling energy of the three girls in her litter. She starts out by tricking people into thinking she is a super sweet, shy girl when really she is probably the spunkiest of the bunch. She loves to dart into situations, stir up trouble, then dart out so she isn't the one to deal with the fallout of her actions. Willa likes to play with other dogs but can also be content entertaining herself off away from the chaos. She can often be found happily running around with a stuffy in her mouth: not chewing, just holding.Willa adapts to new situations rather well: she is not one to get scared or timid (unless it's fireworks going off while she is trying to go potty outside). She is a very smart girl who likes to ignore when she is being told to do something. She learns new routines pretty quickly but can be stubborn if she does not want to follow directions. Her and her sisters can be early risers but luckily not obnoxiously early.Willa has been around a cat for about a week when she was on a housesitting excursion with her sisters and foster mom. Her being about to co-exist with a cat probably depends on the cat(s)'s personality. She and her sisters seemed to like to follow, paw at, and try to play with the cat they met. They would take the cues when the cat told them to back off with a hiss and a swipe but would come back 5-10 minutes later and would do it all again. They didn't seem to chase with any intent, just wanted to try and get them to play. It took the cat disappearing or jumping to a place they couldn't get them until they finally stopped. With dogs, she can be a bit of a bulldozer with dogs who are similar or smaller in size. With her sisters, she can be all rough and tumble when playing. With dogs who are smaller, Willa doesn't always seem to understand her size and can be a bit much. With dogs who are older and bigger, she tries to climb all over them and get in their faces. Depending on the dog, this is tolerated up to a point but she doesn't always understand the cues on when to stop.Her manners are still a little rough around the edges. Due to her liking to jump at people and her puppy mouthiness, she would probably do best in a home with children who aren't going to get easily knocked over and will understand that her puppy biting isn't meant to harm. She also has a tendency to try and climb into laps when sitting down so she can get in someone's face for attention. She's small and somewhat manageable now but she won't always be this small. Like with most puppies, it is highly recommended that boundaries are set pretty quickly and obedience training is started at a young age.It was a bit of a learning curve at first but now she is doing really well with going potty on puppy pads. She seems to prefer to go outside when she can. However, due to the weather that's not always a possibility so she's been great about using pee pads. In the mornings when everyone is just starting to move around, she likes to make the rounds on the way out the back door to greet the other dogs and sometimes pee on the carpet. It's a work in progress. Food and water seem to be some of her favorite things currently. Breakfast and dinner are when the house is the noisiest as Willa and her sisters like to demand that they get fed immediately. They don't seem to understand that that's not how it works and that being bossy typically makes things go a lot slower. Despite over two weeks of practice, Willa has not gotten down how to nicely take a treat from someone's hand. It's almost like in her excitement, she doesn't realize where her mouth is and tries to headbutt the treat from someone's hand. She has almost lost many treats like that but still hasn't learned. It might be due to the heat and her coat but water is something that she is always on the hunt for.Willa is a sweet, spunky girl who is content to play with the other dogs in the house or by herself. She is curious and likes to know what's going on around her. Willa will be an amazing addition to whoever is lucky enough to adopt her.

He's recently had his dental and has no teeth left, but is feeling so chipper with no more pain! He's playing with toys and asking to be loved on.
