Hi there. My name is Piper, but my foster family calls me Little Man because I’m such a gentleman. I was found walking the streets of Oakland, well I couldn’t walk very well because my coat was so matted. I was very skinny and had an awful cough. To top it off I have trouble seeing clearly because I’m told I have cataracts. Well, suffice it to say I was a mess when the poodle people took me in. I am a little guy- 8 pounds and a little over 7 years old. I am a Malti-Poo ( that’s why I am so cute)
Since coming to the poodle people I have been treated so well. All my mats are gone so I walk fine now. I got medicine for my cough and I was treated for worms so now I’m gaining weight. I have been with two different fosters and they have both fallen in love with me. I have that effect on people, you know. I’m going back to the vet to be neutered, have my teeth cleaned and my nails trimmed so I can look my very best when I meet you. I will be ready around Jan. 7, after i have a little R and R from my surgery.
I told you about my cataracts, well you should know that I get around very well in spite of them. I will occasionally bump gently into a wall, but it’s no big deal. I am smart and can learn my surroundings within a couple of days.
I like to go on walks and sniff the world, but I’m good with 20-30 minutes of that.
I’m a pretty relaxed fella and very quiet. I love to snuggle and I’m an excellent napper. I’m good with kids, although maybe older ones might be best because I can get underfoot. I love other dogs and am untested on cats. I’d love to have a fenced yard or patio so I can explore and not get lost. I’d be perfect for a senior who just wants to love me, take me for short walks and allow me to melt their heart. I have a lot of love to give. You can go to NCPR website and fill out an interest application- you can ask for me, Piper. My people will call your people and we can do a meet and greet.My fee is $300.00
Adoption Fee Details
NorCal Poodle Rescue is an Adoption Guarantee Organization: we rehabilitate and re-home all healthy and treatable animals in our care. NCPR honors the definitions of healthy and treatable as described by the Asilomar Accords. We publish our shelter/rescue statistics annually.
Our average Adoption Fee is $300, but the range is $100 to $500 depending on the age and the type of Poodle being adopted. Some Standard Poodles have had a special surgical procedure to prevent gastric torsion. If so, the surgery fee of $650 is added to the adoption fee for that dog.
Adoption Process: All available Poodles are posted on NorCal Pet Adoptions or NorCal Poodle Rescue websites. Step 1: submit an Adoption Interest Form. Step 2: a volunteer will call you. Adoptions are by appointment most days of the week, or on the third Sunday of the month at Pet Food Express, 1388 S. California Blvd., Walnut Creek, 12 noon to 3pm.
Phone: (925) 322-0223 (message only). If you are inquiring about adoption or a particular dog, please submit an Adoption Interest Form from the website.
