Not to be a Debbie Downer...

 For those following the stories of Giselle and Margot, I am sorry to report that both of my promising homes for these angels fell through over the past week. The positive part is that I have found a way to save big bucks on the cost of meds and care, so the girls will remain with me until I find the perfect home.

*These dogs can live very normal lives just keeping a few things in mind: They cannot be exposed to extreme temps or any types of overly stressful situations without potential repercussions to their health.

*While trying to find the lowest effective dose of medication, monthly electrolyres must be drawn and the dosage adjusted. This is very simple and is just a simple blood draw.

*Anyone not squeamish can give the injection themselves. I do it all the time. I am a nurse, but you don't have to be a nurse to give your dog a shot! (Think people - insulin)

*Addison dogs are best suited for homes where they can have access to fresh drinking water all day long and potty breaks as needed. 

* The cost to keep an Addison dog is flexible but doesn't have to break the bank. Meds can be purchased online for 1/3 of the price of the vet office.

**Due to numerous inquiries of folks looking for a free dog, I have decided to charge a nominal adoption fee, which will directly benefit the Creole Poodle Rescue. I hate to do it because the girls do have financial expenses to own, but I have just been burned by people who want a free dog. An Addison dog is not free. It is a commitment.

I will always take my poodles back should the need arise, but we are looking for forever homes.
If you think you can offer a loving home to a special needs standard poodle, please contact me right away for an interview. These girls are very extensively socialized, accustomed to grooming, spayed, and full of love.
