Kissing Poodles

Dear Beagles & Buddies,

I wanted to give you an update on Niles (formerly Beret) the "Kissing Poodle" I adopted several months ago. He is wonderful and my Standard Poodle, Tessa (The Diva) has finally really warmed up to him. For about the first month every time he would try to cozy up to her she would get up and leave. Now they are great friends and even curl up in her bed together. He has definitely won her over with his charms!

They kiss all the time, and Tessa initiates the kissing most of the time. Tessa outweighs Niles by about 30 lbs, but he holds his own with her and they play a lot, especially tug of war. No dog has ever been able to get a toy out of Tessa's mouth until Niles came along. I truly believe Tessa is happier and more mentally stimulated with Niles around. He has enhanced both our lives a great deal. Thank you again for all you do to keep these wonderful animals alive for grateful new owners.

How do new dogs and babies get along?

The baby and the dog should never be left alone together.

However, Bassets are the least likely to be dangerous. There are other breeds such as the Labrador, the Golden Retriever, and the Collie that are unlikely to snap at children.

Adopting an older dog that has had experience with children is much better than adopting a puppy or a young dog without experience.

With puppies, teething is part of growing up - and sometimes they don't know the strength of their own jaws. Rather than riskng it, go with an older dog. That way, both parties can have fun & respect without getting into any trouble!!
