Breed: Poodle (Standard)
Current Location: Austin, TX
Adoption Date: June 20, 2020
Adopted by: Lisa and Scott Carruth
Today was the big day for Daphne to move on to her own life as a pet far away from commercial breeding. she had her last litter and said goodby to all of them last weekend and today was her day.
Daphne is gong to live with Lisa and Scott Carruth in Austin, TX. The family has had poodles of all sizes over the years. They lost their 10 year old standard poodle Cassie last year. Cassie was also a puppy mill mama so they felt like they are honoring her by adopting another poodle that came from similar circumstances. They decided to keep the name Daphne. She will have 2 brothers and 1 sister to enjoy life with. The brothers are a 16 year old miniature poodle and a 3 year old lab mix. Her new sister is a chihuahua rat terrier mix. It is so heartwarming to see the adopters tear up when they meet their new fur baby for the first time! You can just tell that Daphne will want for nothing with this family. Daphne gave them a big smile and tail wag as soon as she met Lisa and Scott. They promised to post updates on the Happy Tails page. Enjoy your new life sweet girl.About Daphne Nierman:

And let’s also talk about this girl:
“Daphne – what can I say. This girl is adorable but s-t-u-b-b-o-r-n!! She has own room where she has meals and sleeps at night but she would rather be where i am. She is super smart! With a little encouragement she leaned the stairs after just a couple of tries. Down looked pretty scary at first. She eats as much as she has room for. I leave the food down so she can graze since her belly is full of puppies. She is thin so we are trying to put some weight on her. She gets her temperature taken 3 times a day but so far no puppies. Potty training is a work in progress. She is improving each day. She gets along well with all the other dogs. Her favorite thing to do is climb up on the couch and scavenge for toys/bones. She has learned to give kisses and loves having her ears rubbed”.
