Poodle (Miniature)

7 years, 4 months
Small  |  Female

Lenoir, NC


I am micro-chipped, am heart-worm Negative, have all my vaccinations, received a major dental. I had already been spayed and have been evaluated for more than 2 weeks by my foster family who have undergone the SRC approval process and reside in Blowing Rock, NC. I am shy but am now warming up well to my foster family especially my foster dad -- our walks are great fun yet I am responding very well to leash training.
(SRC#1814) BELL's Story
BELL with this unique identification number: (SRC#1814) came into our custody and care this summer. Now vetted this dog is being prepared for adoption by a foster family who has gone thru our approval process and she is responding very well .
Bell (1814) had Grade 4 Dental D isease so terrible that her Submandibular Nodes were enlarged and even though no spay was necessary she still required pain meds and a strong antibiotic for 10 days in order to heal her infection. This healed her with no permanent damage so now Bell has the opportunity to enjoy a healthy life. We got her just in time because our vet said if this had been left to do damage she was just beginning to show bone loss in her jaw and without medical care it would have caused problems. Fortunately it was caught early and she is now healed with no issues! SRC got to her just in time and we are so grateful because she is such a sweetheart. Here is what her foster mom had to say about her after only a couple of days:
"Bell is coming right along! When I cook she sniffs the air expectantly and I share a bit with her. She's not in my lap as of yet, but she is becoming more used to us, even coming to shyly sniff us a bit. She does extremely well with our two. Lots of running around the yard from front to back, good potty habits. Able to get her meds in her with Paul's help. Cleaned her eyes. Shes eating well twice a day, and ate her post dinner dentastix with the others. Given time Im sure she'll just do better and better. She's made her place on the dog bed behind Paul's chair but comes on and out with the others. Breaks my heart to think what was done to her to make her so afraid of people."

Now that Bell has been in her foster home for a few weeks she is really beginning to flourish. Her mouth is healed and she is enjoying her foster siblings! They play in the yard and she chills out in the house enjoying the company of her foster parents. Bell LOVES children and is so gentle with them. It is obvious that she is coming out of her shell and will make a wonderful family companion for a loving and patient family!

When ready for adoption this dog is heart-worm tested (negative), de-wormed, vaccinations up to date, spayed/neutered if not done already, micro-chipped, examined by a vet and any necessary medical issues found by this vet will have been addressed. It is anticipated that this dog will be released for adoption by the same date as the completion of the Evaluation. The date of release is left to the discretion of the SRC Core Team.

Tax-deductible donation requested at time of adoption for this dog is $ 365 .
When ready for adoption this canine will also have been evaluated for two weeks by loving SRC foster parents who will be able to give the adoptive parents information as to their opinion about the demeanor of the adoptive parent's new family companion prior to the finalizing of this adoption. SRC volunteers strive to do all of this for the well-being of their rescued canine and for a successful. It is our worthy mission to assure that each dog goes to a loving and stable home whose family members will treat each rescued dog that SRC helps as a beloved member of their immediate family.
