My Story

Date into Rescue: 10/16/2022

Reason for being in rescue: breeder surrender due to her bite

Special Needs: Kymberly is a pup who was born with an odd "bite" (the way her jaw held her teeth in).  To reset her bite, we've removed her lower baby canines.  While there still may be some issues, we're hoping removing the baby teeth in the wrong place will allow her adult teeth to come in normally. Her teeth will need to be watched to make sure they come in correctly.

What kind of home would be best for me: Kymberly is a social, gregarious pup who needs an active home. She is highly intelligent, and would love a home that takes her to classes so she can learn and grow.  She loves the company of other dogs and romps regularly with several.  Another dog in her home would be good but is not essential if there is a lot of love to go around and regular trips to doggie day care to have a good tumble with her buddies. 

Kymberly's mother is a German Shepherd and her father is a standard poodle. We believe she will be a moderate shedder. She does not shed right now - but most pupppies under 6 months old do not.  If you have allergies, Kymberly is not the doodle for you.  If you just want a little less dog hair but love a large dog who wants to be your BFF, Kymberly is wanting to apply for the job. 

What is my personality like: Kymberly is ALL PUPPY and as a puppy, she is wide open, playful and happy.  She also doesn't mind a little bit of mischief.  She is crate trained.  It's her safe place for sleeping, eating and getting treats.  She loves x large milk bones.  She loves balls and chewy toys.  Highly treat motivated, Kymberly is at a perfect age to start obedience.  She loves to play with other dogs.

Kymberly has the LONGEST tail we have ever seen.  You can see the German Shepherd dog in the way her back legs are lower to the ground but her attitude is all standard poodle. She is fun to be around.  Kymberly has not yet been tested with cats. For a serious adopter, we will get that done. 

PUPPY POLICY:

Thank you for carefully considering the addition of a puppy to your family. Puppies can be a joyous experience, but they can also be a tremendous amount of work. Since our goal is to place each of our dogs in forever homes, we are especially cautious with puppies. We like to stress 3 major things when considering a puppy vs. an adult dog: 1) many adult dogs are well bred, well trained dogs who find themselves in rescue through no fault of their own, 2) adult dogs are eager to share their love and bond with their new family, and 3) puppies will always require far more time, energy, and training than an adult dog.

Our ideal puppy adopters are:

-experienced dog owners with a solid record of excellent vet care of their previous pets

-scheduled away from home for no more than 4 hours per day OR have another canine companion already in the home

-stay at home type of people (work at home, home schoolers, retired, etc)

How do I act when I first meet new people: Shy at first but warms up.  Bring treats! 

Tips and Tidbits: Kymberly's birthdate is 6/29/2022.   

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.
