Welcome to our retired adults page! Our adults have lived with us in our home. They are house trained, leash trained, pre-spoiled, and know hand signals. They would make a great addition to your family. Most, though not all, of our sires (dads) and dams (moms) are born and raised right here at Great Lakes Poodles . Placing our adults is something we take very seriously because we want them to go from us straight to their forever homes and not have to be uprooted again and again in their lifetime. In most cases, these adults adjust very easily from our home to your couch!
Our retired adults are kept up to date on all vaccines, groomed on a regular basis and have been on heartworm prevention their entire life. When your adult is picked up, delivered, or shipped he/she will be micro chipped and have been recently groomed. You will receive a shot record, a current rabies certificate and/or tag, negative heart worm test results, registration papers and a starter bag of our food until you can purchase a bag of good kibble of your choice. We will be available to help you and your new companion to adjust so that you both have a long, loving relationship.
Our routine protocol for retiring all of our adult sires and dams is to do so between the ages of five and seven years. When a five to seven year old ADULT ADOPTEE, that has been mutually agreed on, it is taken to our vet just prior to going home with you. A pre-op physical and blood work are done and they are spayed or neutered. The teeth are also cleaned at this time. If needed, a Rabies vaccine is also given at this time. The cost depends on the amount of dental work, the gender and other medical procedures performed--usually this cost is $800.00.
