28-10-14 Keira is a 5 year old ex-breeding poodle who has come to us with her two puppies. She is a beautiful little girl who is very friendly and just wants to be picked up and cuddled or played with. Keira doesn't walk on a lead yet but she is incredibly bright and it won't take long to learn. She sleeps all night with her pups and toilets on a puppy pad. House training is coming along. Keira will toilet in the garden if taken outside. Ideally she would like another dog as a companion to help her settle into her new home.
PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.
