I got my Standard Poodle when she was 8 months old....She was a cast off from a person in IA that just lets her dogs breed and is irresponsible. Petra was living in a rabbit hutch with her siblings when she was rescued. Petra is now my Service Dog! She is so important in my life, she keeps me from falling so often and is an awesome representative of the breed....if not for people like Melissa I would never have had this awesome loving dog in my life! Thank you Petfinder for all the pets you save!
