After tryng to find a Miniature Schnauzer and not being able to find one, I started looking at poodles on Petfinder.com. I was living in Denton, TX, at the time and had tried several times to apply online to adopt dogs but neither I emailed replied. Later I found Baccardi, who was at the time named Mr. Pierre, and emailed his foster mother about him. She replied and asked for me to call her that evening so that she could ask me several questions to determine what kind of pet parent I'd be. After about two hours my phone died, but I was 95% sure that he was going to be my baby after driving to Dallas to meet with her that Saturday after I got off work. After visiting with her for an hour or so, and Mr. Pierre jumping up and down from the chair I was sitting in, I knew he was for me. I asked him if he wanted me to be his forever mommy, and he gave me kisses on the face. To both his foster mother and me, he was saying yes.
That was five years ago and we are still happy together living in Dallas. Baccardi is the most loving furbaby I've ever had.
