Thorp Dog Auction Scrapbook: Dude

Previous -- Next

Dude is probably not a purebred miniature poodle.

     Dude -- what's up?

     Dude is a handsome black pup, about 5-1/2 months old at the time of his sale at the Thorp Dog Auction. He was listed as a purebred miniature poodle, but his coat is very silky -- way too silky to be purebred, according to the shelter vet. Dude may have some Maltese in his bloodline in the not too distant past.

     Poor boy also has pigeon-toed front legs and bowed back legs, and went to sale with yeast infections in both ears.

     Not exactly what a thinking person would call "quality breeding stock," but Dude will make some lucky adopter a wonderful canine companion!
