What kind of home would be best for me? We take placing puppies very seriously. We have a chance to do it right the first time and we are doing all we can to make sure that first home is their furever home. For Sirius, we are looking for a canine companion of any size that is under 10 years old. He would love a snuggle friend, one to romp with and settle down with. Sirius needs a physically fenced in yard. He would do well with kids over 5 who are respectful and have been taught how to treat a dog. We prefer someone home at least 4 hours during the day.
Poodle puppies are always in need of a canine friend, they love to run and play with one another. Poodle puppies are active, agile little babies, they need homes that are ready to tire them out both mentally and physically, so a fenced-in yard will be required. Poodle puppies are very well-rounded dogs, they do not meet strangers and would do well with a nice big family or a single owner! What matters most to a poodle puppy is a happy and excited owner ready to take on loving and training their new puppy! When raised around cats, with proper boundaries, puppies do very well, it is important to note that poodles can have a high prey drive. If you expect your puppy to get alone with your feline buddy, it’s important to start socializing the puppy with the cat as soon as you can! This pup has not had contact with cats that we know of and will not have contact while with their current foster.
What is my personality like? Sirius is a young, happy boy. He is one of the smallest of his litter. Sirius is bouncy and playful within his pack of brothers and sisters. Like all puppies he is curious, clumsy and exploring this big new world.
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 and 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? Inquisitive and curious.
Other tips and tidbits: Sirius was born at the poodle farm on 9/21/2023. There were 10 total pups in the litter. Look for all the Ciri pups online soon.
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.
