Tiny Poodle Rescue

My friend and fellow rescuer, BJ, called me on Saturday afternoon to see if I could ride with her down to Carrollton, Kentucky to pick up two mini-poodles.  They had been saved by Tammie Crawford of the Carroll County Animal Support group so they would not be turned over to the dog pound there. A woman had taken them from her own daughter because she was not taking care of them properly. They were matted and covered in fleas, their teeth look really bad. Both of the dogs have lost the hair around their eyes due to the flea problem. Also they need to be spayed/neutered.

The little girl is named Coco, who I am holding in the photo. The male is named Little Man.

It was about an hour each way and they were  very active on the way home. They seem to know they are going to better things now. BJ will foster them for the time being for GRR- Midwest rescue, but I would not be surprised if she decides to adopt them. They are about 2 or 3 years old but we have no vet records right now to confirm that.

It was a great way to spend my holiday, helping save little lives.
