Poodle (Standard) : : Male : : Senior : : Large
Meet Sam and Dave, a bonded pair of standard poodles. Brothers in fact! They are 11 years old and weigh approximately 60lbs each. These handsome, peppy brothers both love their walks and jump up as soon as they hear the jingle jangle of their leashes. They can't wait to say "Hi" to everyone and every dog they meet along the way. Sam can be so excited by new friends, or even interesting smells on the ground, that he sometimes pulls on the leash and can be difficult to move along. If you call and encourage him Sam will return to the task at hand. Dave understands his brother and patiently waits for Sam to be done sniffing or greeting. There's always one in the family!
At home they are content to sit on their doggy bed (yup, just one big bed!), or lay in the yard and bark an occasional hello to a passerby. If you close your eyes, their serenade can sound like a couple of geese! At their foster home they have learned to go up and down short sets of stairs. Same needs some emotional support and a hand on his harness if the steps are slippery! They've learned to navigate hardwood flooring and to sleep through the night even though they aren't in the same room as their humans. You see, the humans sleep on the second floor and Sam and Dave don't like to climb the big stairs so they have to wait for their humans to come downstairs in the morning. If you live in a bungalow....well...Sam and Dave would love to join you in the bedroom. Actually, they'd prefer it!
Skunks are far more interesting than squirrels. Did you know that? Well, if you don't believe us, Sam and Dave will have no trouble filling you in on the finer points of skunks. Silly boys!
These amazing seniors - who don't know they are seniors - are a perfect pair, looking to spend their retirement with one lucky family. They would do well in a home with or without children, but a safe place to relax outside is a must for them. If you're interested in getting to know them better, please email us to start the conversation. Please note we will require an adoption application be completed prior to meeting any of our dogs. As a bonded pair, their combined adoption fee is $600.
