Retiring Parents

We like to retire our mama's around 6 years old to their own forever family.

Next up for retirement is our mini poodle Ollie.

Expected to be ready for his new home in summer 2024.

515-360-3217 or willowridgepuppy@gmail.com

A phone interview is required to discuss any of our retired parents.

Responsible Breeding

Part of our breeding philosophy is to honor our parent dogs with the same integrity as our puppies!  We see our dogs thrive when they're caring for their pups... wag, smile and love our daily interactions, and always look forward to snuggle time with one another. However, retiring our mama's at a respectful age allows them continue the rest of their years in their own adoptive family as a special companion to a new person/family.  What a full life!💖

Is a Retired Dog Right For You?

Our retired dogs are wonderful companions. They would fit well in homes where their person works from home and/or is retired.  Our dogs are all potty/trained - kennel/trained; but it's not the same as housebroken and will still need to be lovingly trained in their new home.  Good news; an older dog generally doesn't need to potty near as often as a puppy; neither do they have the same amount of energy! Our retired parents have found loving homes and transitioned well with their new families.  We are happy to have a phone interview when deciding if a retired dog is right for you as they each have their own personality and home types they would be honored best in.

Is a Retired Dog Right For You?

The best way to know if one of our retiring parents is right for you, is a phone interview to discuss everything!  Please set up a phone interview by texting or calling us at 515-360-3217. 

We look forward to speaking with you.
