Quality Standard Poodles in Black, Blue, Apricot, Cream and Occasionally Parti-Colors

 Fostering a poodle from Rivers Edge


Its important that poodles receive lots of love and individual attention from their humans. On occasion we purchase a puppy or need to keep a puppy from a specific litter for our program. It is not always practical for us to physically do that so we have found it better to use a foster arrangement.

They live with their foster family as their beloved pet companion, while at the same time being available for us to take them to occasional shows, health test them, and if they work out, use them in our breeding program. They would return to our home for breeding then back again for whelping and raising their puppies. They would then go back to their home after the litter is weaned. After a couple of litters  the poodle would be spayed/neutered and ownership would transfer to the foster parent.

Thus far this has proven to be a great way for us to have options for our breeding program without having to rehome breeding dogs when they are retired at an older age. For the foster parent, they receive the best of our program, a "pick puppy" at no purchase price. The foster parent would be responsible for typical pet costs, such as regular vaccinations, quality food, grooming, and a beginning puppy class for socialization. The foster parent would not be responsible for any costs associated with breeding, showing and health testing.

The foster parent shall have no interest in breeding and would not own any other intact pets of the opposite sex.  They need to live within a reasonable distance of 1-3 hours away from our home here in MID WESTERN Michigan so that we find it easy to pick up and drop off.  A secure fenced yard is a MUST!
