Meet Blanca, our enchanting senior miniature poodle, a true testament to resilience and joy! At the golden age of 10-11 years, Blanca was surrendered to a local veterinary clinic for euthanasia in June 2023. The staff instead reached out to City of Elderly Love for help and Blanca landed a loving foster home! It was there that she was diagnosed with diabetes which was contributing to her health issues and blindness (cataracts caused by unregulated diabetes). Blanca has since gotten very healthy, her diabetes is managed with twice daily insulin injections which she tolerates well, and she's even had her cataracts surgically removed and her vision restored! Needless to say, Blanca is a resilient little lady who can't wait to continue to live the best years of her life.

Blanca is currently living in foster care with other dogs ranging from 17-97 lbs. and gets along with them well! Though she isn't afraid to just walk over them to get where she's doing or to offer a verbal correction to tell them to beat it if they're being too pushy with her. She has also spent time with cats and children, both of which she gets along well with. We do recommend she live with older children just due to her size, occasional old lady grumpiness when she's woken up (same) and her medical needs. Blanca treasures her beauty sleep and will nap several times a day. She prefers to stay around her people, including during potty breaks so she isn't really the type of dog who will happily hang out in the yard without you. Her favorite spot is right on the couch next to you! She also loves going for leisurely strolls in the neighborhood and car rides. Blanca does well when crated while you're at work!

Blanca has been fully vetted since coming to the rescue. Due to her diabetes and surgery to restore her vision, Blanca does require daily medication. She receives an insulin shot with breakfast and dinner which she tolerates well. She is also on a prescription diet which helps regulate her blood sugars, and needs daily eyedrops to keep her new peepers healthy. Blanca requires more frequent potty breaks due to her diabetes and wears diapers in her foster home in case she has an accident. Blanca may require more frequent than average veterinary visits to manage her blood sugar and adjust insulin doses. Her future family will require some patience while she adjusts to their routine and schedule.

Blanca is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love! She is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Interested in adopting her? Visit to complete an online adoption questionnaire or email us at!
