Sugar Dogs International, Inc. does NOT provide you with a trained service dog. We suggest that you apply with Florida Poodle Rescue online and rescue a dog, even if it’s not a Poodle. Many breeds of dogs as well as mixed breeds may spontaneously alert. There are many reliable rescue groups; use the ‘net to search. We support rescue over purchasing a dog and offer these cautions:
BE CAREFUL buying a dog off of the ‘net as some of these dogs may be stolen or they may take your money and never provide you with a dog.
Always take your dog to the vet immediately after taking possession of it whether you rescue it or buy it. Schedule the vet appointment before you pick up the dog so that on your way home, you can take the dog to the vet. Always ask that the dog be scanned for a micro-chip before being examined or vaccinated. You don’t want to pay to vaccinate someone else’s dog!
If you want a puppy, below is a quick list of breeders with possible Poodle puppies. These breeders know what we are looking for in a diabetic alert dog and/or medical alert dog. We’ve had multiple clients tell us of four (4) month old puppies alerting coming out of the shipping crate to meet their new diabetic child, teenager and adult person at the airport. Remember we request that the pup stay with its mother until it is four (4) months or 16 weeks old. This gives the pup more confidence as it explores the world with you.
