Our wonderful groomer, Madeline, also runs Southern California Poodle Rescue. When I dropped off Beau this morning at 8 AM for his regular groom, there were no dogs in rescue. But as I walked from my car to go in and pick up Beau at 12:45, a big-sounding dog was baying the most forlorn howl you can imagine.
I asked Madeline, "Who's howling? Is it a rescue"?
She pointed to a white standard standing just on the other side of a sliding glass door leading to a large enclosed area outside, and said, "That's Shelli. She just came in. She thinks she just came here for a bath; doesn't even know she's a rescue yet."
Just about broke my heart.
Here she is. Spread the word!
SHELLI is a purebred, AKC registered white Standard Poodle female. She is 5 years old. Shelli is housebroken, loves everyone including children and gets along with other dogs.

Oh she is beautiful... I wish I were closer. She looks so much like Remington. How sad, I hope that she finds the most wonderful home where she is spoiled rotten.
