My Story

Date into rescue: 3/21/2018

Reason for being in rescue? Owner release/ owner passed

Special Needs?Yes, I am a pair.  It was my previous owners dying wish that I would get to stay with Derby! The people at the poodle farm agree that we need to be together.  Besides, bro needs me.  He can't see without me.

What kind of home would be best for me? We are seeking a home with an experienced dog owner and someone who is home more than they're away.

What is my personality like? I may be a little on the older side but I'm still as happy, sweet and I can still get around just fine! I am really looking for my retirement home where I can lay around and bask in the sunshine with my best friend, Derby beside me. I walk great on a leash. I'm docile and get along just fine with any and everything so far. The friend that arranged for us to take the boys in said that Argus could sometimes be possessive of his surroundings and guard his home but we think it was because he knew his owner could not do it herself.  We have seen nothing of that here.  

How do I act when I meet new people? Friendly.

Tips and Tidbits: My brother and I have ended up at the rescue due to unfortunate circumstances. Our owner has passed away.  Could  you give us a home?

House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
