Amy's journey is nothing short of remarkable. She arrived at our rescue as an X-Puppymill Mom, along with three other standard poodles, in April 2023. On their first day, they stood frozen in the kitchen, huddled together, a poignant reminder of their past life at the mill. Three months later, they've made remarkable progress, learning how to embrace their new roles as cherished companions. However, it's essential to understand that when Amy transitions to her adoptive home, she may initially feel unsafe due to her shy nature.

Amy has been gradually coming out of her shell, but she's still working on her potty skills. Therefore, her ideal home would be with someone who can provide frequent bathroom breaks every couple of hours. What's crucial is that Amy needs a patient and caring owner who is willing to let her set her own pace. In just a couple of months in her new home, we believe Amy will begin to feel safe and fully relax into the household routine.

Amy is expected to thrive in a home with either a gentle, respectful dog or someone who is willing to spend a significant amount of time with her. This companionship will help her feel more secure as she continues to adjust to her new environment. She must also have a fenced-in and gated yard for her safety, given her shyer disposition. It's worth noting that once Amy does feel safe, she'll delight you with her charming poodle personality. She adores being pet, particularly on her head, and she'll happily sit next to you for hours, a testament to the affectionate and loving companion she's destined to become.

Amy is 2-1/2 years old and fully vetted, She has been spayed, received age-appropriate vaccines, microchipped, and is heartworm negative, Subsequent vaccines are at the expense of her adopter Her adoption donation is $600.00.
