Jacksonville Senior Photographer // Scarlett Lillian Seniors: Single White Poodle Looking For A Girlfriend.

Apr 2, 2008

Single White Poodle Looking For A Girlfriend.

Sniff, sniff. My little boy is getting to get so growny! Rhett turned 4 years old today! He's now older than me in dog years. So sad! For the past 4 years, he has been my precious companion, loyal friend and absolute love of my life!

All this time, I have said I was going to breed him, and I never did the first thing to pursue it. If you know of anyone needing a studly male toy poodle for stud services, please send me an email at scarlett@scarlettlillian.com. Rhett's genes are just too cute not to pass on! Thanks ahead of time for playing match maker for my sweet Rhett!

I've been getting a lot of negative comments left about this post, and I'd just like to say for the record, I never meant to offend anyone or be insensitive about this subject. I'm not even looking to make money off of this, I just thought my dog was cute and that there might be an opportunity available if a breeder was looking for a new male dog. It was an innocent thought not realizing the greater picture. Trust me, I love animals, that's why I'm a vegetarian!

Thank you for the kind words. I hope you have been doing awesome too. Good luck with pimping little Rhett out. I agree he's too adorable not to share.

I love love love your blog, but PLEASE don't breed your dog just because he's gorgeous! There's SO much that can go wrong, and so many dogs that already need homes. Please don't do it!

I agree - there are far too many homeless toy poodles out there to be producing anymore. Your boy is indeed very cute, but breeding should be left to professionals - ie. those that show their dogs, win championship titles, and want to improve the genetics of the breed. If you don't fall into this category, then you are contributing the homeless pet problem that claims over 10 million lives per year.

Cute dog! But you might want to do a little more research before you breed him. Here is just one link to look at:

If you breed him you will be making yourself responsible for the lives of his puppies, and it can be harder to find truly good homes than you might think. Just look at the poodles on petfinder.com - they didn't come from nowhere - at one time someone brought them home with the best intentions, thinking they would be their life-long companion, but look where they are now. Do you want to contribute to that problem? How much would it break your heart to know that one of your dog's descendants was in a shelter some day? Once you give away or sell a puppy it is very hard to keep track of it and make sure it is taken are of.

wow. I didn't realize that by making a choice to "breed" your dog would upset anyone. I'm sorry, but I don't agree with Mr. or Mrs. anonymous. I see your innocent thinking on this, and the comments are a little strong people. good lord. ;)

I can see both sides of it. At first, I didn't think anything of it. When I got to the "EDIT" I was thinking, "Huh?" Then, I read the comments. I understand their position. I will admit, I have a Boston terrier that my husband and parents got from a breeder. Earlier in my life, I thought about breeding Bostons. Then, I realized that I wouldn't enjoy wondering what happened to all the babies. Just something for you to consider. There are a lot of homeless dogs and cats out there. But there are people who want pure bred dogs as well. Just think of all the pros and cons and make your own decision.

Sorry if we came on strong. It's just that you seem like a very genuine dog lover, and so many people mean well without knowing some of the potential downsides of breeding. I used to be one of them. I would rather share info with someone and have them not listen, then know that they made an uneducated decision they later regretted. :)

I can see both sides but think of those couples who want to have a biological offspring even though there are plenty of babies waiting to be adopted...should they feel guilty?

Good point Julie H!! I totally agree.

Scarlett, you make your own decision. I totally understand where everyone is coming from - there are so many pets that need to be adopted. At the same time, you've got every right to want grandkids!! I feel the same way about my boxer Charley, he's just too cute not to breed. But I haven't yet, and I may or may not, same as you.

Don't let people guilt you into changing your mind. You're a strong-willed woman and you'll figure it out for yourself!!

What does 'ole Curtis think of all this? For me, the advice from a close friend always results in much better decisions than relying on the comments of strangers.

I agree with "ShoresPhotography". The harsh approach from the anonymous posters (and the foul language from The Nest's forum) was uncalled for. I understand their concerns, but you genuinely had no idea (like most people). In that sense, I guess I would be considered a moron also. **donning my dunce hat**

The puppies are the responsibility of the breeder who brings Rhett in for service. It's up to them to find good homes for the pup, and most breeders willing to pay for a stud will be finding those homes themselves and not just "setting the puppies free." Y'all keep that in mind, and let Scarlett and Rhett live their lives. Scarlett, you'll be fine either way and it isn't your responsibility. God created animals for various reasons and gave them the ability to reproduce. Rhett is one of those precious gifts and it's your choice to make together. He loves the closeness of another person or pet, so I know he will be appreciative of the set-up, as will the families who take home one of his offspring.

Blogs are not the place to start arguments and state your "position" on the issues. This is a blog to share Scarlett's life, not for political or humanitarian thoughts.

There are chat rooms and other networks for the issues and rights of animals.

I'm the parent of an adopted pet and I thank God for him every day. Just the same, I would never verbally attack a breeder or someone considering breeding...without breeders, we wouldn't have pets as great as mine or Rhett.

Gosh- People need to mind there own biz. Sorry for all the grief your getting Scarlett- I'm a loyal reader and fellow animal lover! I recently went through a similar situation when I posted a myspace bulletin asking if anyone new a breeder because I wanted to get a "sister" for my King Cav (WHO came from a humane society). This guy jumped all over me for BUYING instead of ADOPTING- when actually I didn't ask him his opinion and didn't appreciate him judging me. I figure to each there own! And I'd have to agree- Rhett is a total cutie!

"I can see both sides but think of those couples who want to have a biological offspring even though there are plenty of babies waiting to be adopted...should they feel guilty?"

Dearest Julie, the last time I checked we were not euthanizing thousands of babies everyday. You cannot put babies and dogs on the same level of importance. As much as we all love our dogs the desire for a married couple to bear children together and to see one another in their childs eyes is a God given desire and His design. It can not be compared to the desire to breed ones adorable pet.
I used to work for a Humane Society and the weekly euthanizing made me caused me to feel very passionately about the over breeding of pure breeds. I'm sure the above seemingly rude comments were not meant to be rude but came from a strong desire to bring awareness to something terrible that happens all the time. I don't think having a pure breed dog is wrong. I have an aodrable sweet chihuahua. I got him through a rescue adoption. All pure breed dogs have rescue groups that try to place them with people who appriciate and love the breed.

Scarlett, you are a wonderful person with a very natural and normal desire. It is just a desire that many people (too many) who love their animals choose to do. I would feel the same if I had not encountered first hand the awful reality and excessive amount of adorable sweet loving animals that were put to sleep as I held them. All because we could not find a home for them.

Hope I did not offend, this is nothing I wouldn't say to a good friend that wanted to breed their wonderful dog.

My last word of advice is you might have more luck getting Rhett a girl if he wore some more manly accessories...he seems a bit metro if you know what I mean.
lol! :)

I have no connection with the other anonymous commenters and am a regular reader of your blog. I only just now saw the site from which you were recieving so much attention. Sometimes people with very good intentions go about things a little the wrong way.

Geesh! People are so crazy. Anyways, love your poodle, your life stories, and your ideas, there's no harm in letting poor Rhett have a lover! You can love animals and breed them too. He does have mighty cute genes ;)
