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

 Fostering a poodle from Rivers Edge


It's important that poodles receive lots of love and individual attention from their humans. On occasion we purchase a puppy or retain a puppy from one of our litters. It is not always practical for us to physically keep them here so we have found it better to use a foster/guardianship arrangement.

This means that 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. The Guardian family has no responsibility to raise the litter. 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 if they are able and interested.

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 especially in higher traffic areas.

If you think Fostering one of our poodles is something that would interest you, please contact us with any questions or thoughts.  After you've looked over the contract and would like to move forward, we then may make a couple of visits with puppy/dog to see whether this type of arrangement will work out.
