We have three girls that are now retired and ready to find a comfy couch and lots of cuddles and cookies!
When we were busy with puppies the idea of sharing more about them kind of got put on the back burner. But now that we are less busy, I’d sure like to find these girls sweet retirement homes.
And I know I’ve mentioned this before, but there may be some new people here wondering why I’m rehoming adults?
Let me explain the “why” behind this decision. If I’m going to continue raising these adorable puppies for potential adopters, I have to raise more adults to be future parents. Obviously, we want our parents to have a nice life and “retire” at a nice age. So we raise some purebred Poodles and Cavaliers or keep a Cavapoo puppy occasionally to step in when those current ones are ready to retire. So there are always more dogs around then just the current parents. All those dogs require attention, grooming, love, medical care, and space. And I only have so much of each. My house is small, so I can only fit so many in here with me at one time. If I could reasonably have all the dogs in the house with me I would! (Of course, my husband would probably move out and the kids would never visit! :P) But it’s just not possible when you have more than a few.
So I would much rather have an adult that is no longer being a parent, be spayed and retired into a home where he or she is the center of attention; a place where they will be doted on and spoiled. Where they can sleep on the couch, be part of the family activities and given all the attention they want. And I screen and place the dog into what I think sounds like the best home for that particular dog.
Let me introduce the girls.
“Amber” is a purebred light apricot mini Poodle, about 13″ tall and around 13 lbs. She is up-t0-date on her vaccinations, spayed, just had a dental, crate and leash trained and microchipped. She turned five in October. She needs a home with quieter, calmer environment with adults only, as she has a softer temperament and I don’t think she’d do well with busy smaller humans as she wasn’t raised with little kiddos. She’s an absolute sweetheart though, loves attention and enjoys carrying a soft toy around in her mouth. She would probably do well with another mild-mannered dog, but would probably like being the “only” better.
“Hazel” is a purebred silver beige parti mini Poodle, about 12″ tall and around 11 lbs. She is also spayed, micro-chipped, up-to-date on vaccinations, leash trained and crate trained. She is six-and-a-half years old. She has more a more sassy and independent personality, but loves to be loved on. My in-laws kept her for a while and she loved sitting on one of their laps and just being loved on. She definitely needs a fenced yard as she likes to run and explore and potty off-leash more than she does on leash. Hazel would probably do fine with another dog, but only if it’s a male. She can be a bit bossy with other females.
“Gracie” is a purebred ruby Cavalier King Charles Spaniel standing 12 1/2″ tall and (used to be) 17-ish lbs but has put on some weight after her spay surgery so probably closer to 20 lbs now. She is also up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, crate and leash trained and will turned six just before Christmas. She is a chow hound so don’t leave any food within reach! She will come out of her crate in the morning and start checking everyone else’s crates for leftover food! She is a typical sweet Cavalier who enjoys lounging on her bed in between potty breaks and meals. She would do well with someone that likes to go on long walks or has another dog to play with. Since she was raised with her sisters, I think she needs to have another compatible doggie playmate. Male or female would work for her. Oh, I almost forgot to mention the obvious, Gracie only has one eye, but you’d never know it. She gets along like a regular two-eyed dog. My husband has nicknamed her Winky. 😉
