Posted Breed: Poodle (Toy) (medium coat). Gracie will come off as a shy dog with lots of personality! She is a happy dog and after she settles in to her new home, she will become sassy! She hates being away from her human companions and enjoys car rides and snuggling on the couch. She is 7 years old and was "retired" from a puppy mill in May and has made great progress. She loves to sleep in bed at night and likes to play with her caregivers. She thinks of herself as the Princess of Everything, as she makes it clear that she should always be the center of attention. She is also learning to walk on a leash and is improving all the time. She would prefer to walk on her own, as she likes to take leisurely walks to explore everything and will randomly lay down during walks. She is a very curious dog. Gracie is being potty training currently, and training will need to continue after adoption. Extra time and patience with walking her outside may help with potty training, as may crate training. Since she is an older dog that was not taken to a vet, she needs dental care. She may require dental checkups yearly as well. She is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $350.

More About Poodle (Toy) Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.
