ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS: You must be a resident of FL. This bonded pair requires a 6-foot fenced yard in a single family home – no renters. To qualify for adoption, all of the pets in your home must be spayed or neutered, they must be current on vaccines, preventatives, and have received consistent veterinary care. Standard Poodles typically live 12-15 years, so keep their lifespan in mind if you are thinking of adopting Imani and Carmella. Families with older children that can manage 2 large dogs will be considered.

IMANI and CARMELLA: Both these gorgeous girls came to VIP Rescue from the same home, they are bonded, and would like to be adopted together. Carmella is 7 yrs old, and Imani’s is 5 years old. Carmella is Imani’s Aunt and they have always been together. These girls are well trained, sweet, polite, and affectionate. They are everything you could hope for. They are very happy joyful kids, full of love and life, and just waiting for their new home with open paws. Both are very smart, they know commands, are good leash walking, are house-trained, and enjoy play time. They love riding in the car, they have a lot of energy to burn – they are not couch potatoes. If you are a hiker or a jogger that likes to get out and go, you can take them with. They are good with older children and other dogs and cats. They would love some toys to keep them busy. They are calm and entertain one another. Imani and Carmella will sleep in your bed if you invite them. They learn quickly, and they aim to please. Imani and Carmella are ready to begin their journey with a family of their very own that can keep up with them, and entertain them. If you are ready for a pair of highly intelligent well-mannered pups, look no further. They will be dedicated devoted companions to the end……. They are great with other dogs and even a mean cat.

HISTORY: Imani and Carmella have led a wonderful life. Their former owner was unable to keep them due to working many long hours and long shifts as a nurse. She asked VIP Rescue to find them a loving caring home together.

MEETING CARMELLA AND IMANI: The two dogs are fostered in Myakka City, FL. and will be adopted to a home within a reasonable distance. You will need to travel to Myakka City to meet them if your application is approved. You will need to bring all your family members and pets for the introduction meeting.

STANDARD POODLE BREED: Standard Poodles are highly intelligent. They require abundant exercise in your fenced yard, leash walks, patience, and mental stimulation on your family’s part. Please do your homework on the Standard Poodles breed, they are not for everyone. They are high energy, have a high-prey drive, and require a grassy yard to exercise in that is secured on all 4 sides. Standard Poodles are eager to learn, they are athletic, agile, wickedly smart, and are very versatile velcro dogs. They want to be an active participant in your daily life. High quality food is essential and not cheap. Standard Poodles require monthly grooming, and frequent brushing. Grooming ranges from $100-$200 for each dog. They love being around people and are able to form bonds with each member of the family, as opposed to bonding with just one person. They also make superb watchdogs barking zealously when strangers approach the home. Poodles may look dainty and demur, but in truth, these are high-stamina dogs with a stellar range of skills.

MEDICAL: Imani and Carmella have been spayed, they are up to date on vaccines, preventatives, they are microchipped, and heartworm negative. We are not aware of any health issues.
