Betty the Poodle

About Betty

Hello, my name is Bethy. I am a female 25 lbs/11 kg poodle. I am ready to finally find my family and enjoy life.

Sister to Nelly, also for adoption from Rosie, I am so very sweet. I am healthy but I do have a heart murmur. Even so, I just powered through a spay and a big dental surgery like a champ, no issues. I adore head scratches and ears rubs. I will close my eyes and lean my chin on you and sigh deeply. I have a special talent, too. I can smile! When pleased, I grin happily, showing my little front teeth. Sometimes, I do it so hard, it makes me sneeze!

I have been adapting to home and family life very well, attending family barbecues and quietly getting to know people and other dogs. I’ve also been the quiet and steadfast office mate to my foster mom these last few weeks and have just generally shown that I will be a great addition to a lucky home.

A little shy, which is understandable since my life experience so far has been so limited, I am ready to embrace the world! I approach every new experience with hope and slowly expand my comfort zone. A few weeks ago, I was terrified of walks and now I am at the door with my foster family’s pack, dancing and whining excitedly, waiting for my turn to get the leash on. I even give a thank you lick to the hand and a wag when you take the leash off.

My perfect family would have another dog to give me confidence and teach me family-dog life by example. I think I’d like a quiet life and home, with walks and ear scratches and lots of affection to give and receive, of course. All I will want is your company and affection and I will give that back one hundredfold.

Some families might hesitate to give a senior dog like me a chance, but we can tell you one thing: a dog that has never had a family life and then finally is gifted their family, they KNOW they’ve won the lottery and show it in a deep devotion and affection. You get the ease and settledness of a mature dog but you also get to witness the discovery of new things and experiences, not through a puppy’s eyes but through the eyes of a dog that knows how very precious it all is.

I have just been spayed and had dental work done, so am ready to go! If you think you might be the right match for me, please apply.

Surrenders

Here at Rosie Animal Adoption, we understand that the decision to give up a family pet is not always an easy one and that the dog's best interests are always of paramount importance. Whether you have a family pet or a stray to surrender, please be aware that there are many unscrupulous people who are always on the lookout for unaltered dogs to breed strictly for profit. Dogs kept for this purpose, be it by a “backyard breeder” or “puppy miller,” are usually kept in inhumane conditions that are worse than you can imagine. We get many calls from people who are “in a hurry” to re-home their dogs, claiming that they simply cannot wait. With the increasing number of homeless dogs in the province of Quebec , our resources are always stretched to the limit and we do not always have immediate openings. We would ask that you please be patient when contacting our volunteers to surrender a dog.

We will do our best to help you as quickly as we can, and may also be able to refer you to another group that we are affiliated with, but the most important message here is to proceed very cautiously if you are giving away or selling your dog to someone who may be portraying a private individual. The best thing you can do is to be sure to have your pet spayed or neutered and the worse thing you can do is offer an unaltered pet “free to a good home.” We have seen what can happen.
