Dogs available for Foster Homes
Willowlane's Velvet & Lace ( Velvet)
DOB Nov. 24th 2017
Velvet is our stunning Red with white CKC registered Standard Poodle. Her goofy side is balanced with a deep soulful and sweet nature as captured in this picture. She can gaze loving into your eyes then make you giggle with her crazy expressions and smiley faces. She is about 50-55 pounds.
She has a tight curly, non shedding coat.
The purpose of our Fostering program is to provide our breeding dogs a wonderful, devoted, loving family right from day one.
We do not believe in keeping a large number of dogs in our home for breeding. Only an amount that we can provide superior care for and the amount of attention and love they deserve. Golden Retrievers, Poodles and Doodles are devoted and social dogs and not only require, but thrive on human contact. This is why we have begun the Fostering Program.
How the Foster Program Functions
The puppy, adolescent or young adult we place with you will only be in our breeding program if we feel he/she is deemed of breeding quality. We pay for any genetic or physical soundness testings required to deem the dog of breeding quality, for example hips, heart and elbow tests. Routine checkups and annual vaccinations, dental care, emergency visits to the vet, grooming and training and a nutritious, balanced diet are the responsibility of the Foster family.
If in the case you foster from the time the dog is a young pup and the puppy isn't breeding quality you still have the opportunity to own the dog under the condition that you have the dog spayed/neutered and pay an agreed upon adoption fee..
If the dog is of sound genetic health and deemed suitable to raise the next generation of Willow Lane puppies, then we have the right to breed the dog to a wonderful male/female of our choice. As mentioned above, this means that your family member/dog would have to leave you for a little while. However you and your family are welcome to come and visit during this time.
After the male/female dog has fulfilled the agreed upon commitment to the breeding program, we transfer full ownership of the dog into the Foster Family's name.
In the case of the females, the commitment is 3 litters equaling 18 or more puppies,with the potential of a 4th litter. However this is determined only after careful assessment of the female's health and well being. We feel this is very fair as some programs require a commitment until the dog is 5 years old. In the case of mini or petite dogs, the litter sizes are usually smaller in number and this is taken into consideration.
In the case of male dogs, we ask that we use the male until the he is 7 years of age.
The advantages for the male or female dog are great! We want to be able to raise quality family pets without impacting the parent animals' quality of life! This is where the Fostering Program is ideal! The male or female gets to grow up surrounded by your loving family, and only has to leave for small periods of time (and not very often). When he or she is done contributing to the next generation of quality puppies, that dog retires to the same loving home that she/he has always known.
We are very selective when choosing a Foster Family. The Foster Family must agree to all conditions listed in our contract to be able to be considered. We feel that these conditions benefit all parties, the dog, the Foster Family and us. The most important goal is that the dog is placed in a loving, caring and knowledgeable home where they will be part of a family.
Please note that if chosen to be part of the Foster Program you will have 24/7 support. You can call us anytime with questions or concerns
Fostering is not a match for everyone but if you are interested please give us a call.
All Foster Families must live within 2 hours of the farm.
