Hello everyone. I've been a new poodle owner of about 4 months!
I came across this gorgeous guy. Someone had purchased him as a puppy for a handsome price, and then left him to the backyard. When he found his way into my home, he had no social skills, was 8 months old and did not know his name, starved... barely 40 pounds at 25", afraid of EVERYTHING, infested with tapeworms, had a terrible UTI and the worst yeast infection in his ears my vet had ever seen! He literally had SWAMP ears...poor thing. I fattened him up, taught him some doggy etiquitte, caught him up on his vaccinations and gave him a hair cut.
Carson has a fantastic pedigree and is AKC registered. He is one big baby though he is awesome at watch doggying (all an act), is sharp as a whip and just an all around lover.
How could anyone be so cruel!

They were like that when I first got him but, they are not as bad as they were. You don't see the membrane over the corners of his eyes anymore. I took that photo after having him for maybe 3 weeks. It could have been because of how skinny he was?

Thank you everyone for all the compliments! I apologize for taking so long to reply. I do appreciate this forum and all of the wonderful information that I've been able to use over the years. It's nice to hear it from those who actually own poodles instead of from those doing guess work.
Thank you!
