HEART has a pending adoption, however we will continue to take application for her should the original adoption not be successful.  Please apply at

Heart is an absolutely darling 6 year old purebred miniature poodle who came to us when her human had to move into a residential facility and could not take her. Heart was her Mom's companion/service dog so she went everywhere...on the bus, in the car, to church, shopping.  She is friendly and gentle and great with other dogs and people including kids.  Right now, Heart is understandably anxious and little fearful because of all the changes in her life, so kids should be old enough to understand that and give her the time and space she'll need.  Heart is knows many commands and as is typical of poodles, is very smart and very athletic.  Heart has some special medical needs - she has atopy - the doggie equivalent of hay fever, and requires daily medication.  We know that her primary allergy is to dust, so a clean and carpet free home would be best for her.  Heart is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all her shots.  If you think you can give this darling girl a forever home, please fill out an application at
