Joey, Queenie and Lu - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from .

In 2009, we were looking to add another puppy to our home. We searched on Petfinder, and came upon the kind of pup we wanted (poodle) at Pregnant Dog and All Breed Rescue in Newfoundland, Pa. it was, coincidentally, around the corner from our home! I contacted Cindy, who is a wealth of information! We already had a 2 year old male poodle, and Cindy explained that the pup we had initially wanted was not the best "fit" for our family. We decided on a different pup from the same litter, who was much more docile.....less of an Alpha male, and we are thrilled we did!! Joey, who is now 4, is a 9 pound bundle of love!!! Cindy was full of tips and information, and we were so impressed, not only by the cleanliness and "hominess" of this rescue, and with the fact that the dogs there are treated HOLISTICALLY from the time Cindy has them, but by Cindy herself! No question was silly, she was always available for me, and along the way, we became dear friends! A year later, we adopted Queenie (Joey's mom) and Lula (Joey's sister). Clearly, we were so impressed with Pregnant Dog and All Breed Rescue!!!! We added 3 wonderful members to our family, and I can't say enough good things about them! I tell everyone looking for a dog to contact Cindy!!!
