Two Beautiful Boys Looking for Their Forever Home

Joey and Robbie, two miniature black Poodles, came from a breeder of show dogs and were very well cared for. So, when these two beautiful dogs were adopted by a woman, also in the dog show world, their good care and grooming continued, and, in fact, Robbie is a retired show dog.

When their person died suddenly, Joey and Robbie were taken to a shelter. They were picked up by the late owner’s best friend and taken to a kennel owned by a member of NY/NJ Scottie Rescue which is how these two poodles became Scottie wannabes.

Joey & Robbie

Both Joey and Robbie have been fully vetted including dentals and full blood work. They have also been groomed by the kennel’s groomer.

These boys are gorgeous and a bonded pair. They walk well on a leash and are well-behaved, calm, quiet dogs, and not high energy. They enjoy sitting in laps and are not much for toys. One marks occasionally in the house, but rescue feels the woman owner was a bit careless about letting them out regularly, and this can be corrected once they are settled in a forever home. Additionally, they are currently in a foster home with a number of other fosters, which is something they are not used to, and may be confusing for them.

Since these dogs have been together most of their lives, rescue wants to place them together. Poodles generally live into their mid to late teens, so these boys have lots of life and love left to give.

A good home would have a single person or couple who would appreciate how special these two are. Young children would not be a good fit, but older children who are respectful of dogs would be fine. Despite occasional brother tiffs, they get along well with other dogs, but it is unknown how they would react to cats. However, since they are calm, quiet, and not at all aggressive, they might be okay with a resident cat. A fenced-in yard would be a bonus, but their foster mom says they go out, do their business, and are ready to come back in and hang out inside with their people.

Quite different from Terriers, these two boys are not high maintenance except for regular grooming, and they would easily adapt into the right home.
