February 22, 2019 Meeting

Our February 22 meeting was originally going to feature a grooming demonstration from DeWitt Bolden. However, it’s turned out to not work as well for the club or Mr. Bolden, and it’s now scheduled for June, after the May Specialty Shows.

We will be covering some club business at the February show, and as always, we will share lots of information about poodles!

Poodles in Need of Foster/Permanent Homes!

February 24, 2019: These poodles are no longer in need of homes. If you are interested in adopting one of our rescues, please fill out the Home Evaluation form so that we can contact you as soon as we have a poodle that would be a match for you.


We were contacted by another rescue group because of the urgency of this situation. There are five miniature poodles in need of foster or permanent homes. Their owner passed away and the family cannot keep them past this Saturday, January 26. There were a total of eight poodles, but three are being kept by family members. They are all in good health.  There are three females and two males.  They are housebroken, and good with dogs and kids (no toddlers).  Contact Trish 505-907-3791 or email 

Further info: Two of the females are 13 year-old white miniatures. The other is a 10 year-old gray miniature. The two males are 11 year-old black miniatures.
