Miss Portia (Holly)
Adopted: Nov 10, 2007
Miss Portia (Holly) was an owner surrender at 1 year old due to her owner having to move to a nursing home. The family placed Portia with Poodle Rescue to find her a good home. I had adopted my boy Peppie from PRH in 2004. He was lonely due to the death of my found on the road poodle Miss Lexus. When I found out about Portia, I went to PRH with my friend and we picked her up (they were BEST friends for life until Peppie died). Portia has been with me since. She is almost 11 years old. She is a hospice pet therapy dog and, as you can see, loves her stroller. I have since mourned the passing of Peppie and another found on the road poodle, Teddy Bear. They each have a brick at PRH. It is just Miss Portia and I right now, but when we are ready, we will rescue another! PRH Comment: Thanks for this very moving tribute!)
