Meet Serenity, a sweet 15-year-old poodle who weighs about 8 pounds. She was an owner surrender to Smidget Rescue when the family could not keep her after her owner passed away. Serenity is looking for a quiet retirement home.  Her favorite things are snoozing on a dog bed near a human, strolling in the yard, and eating her meals.

This little girl is slow to warm up to new people, but once she does, Serenity follows the humans around the house.  She is touch shy, so needs a home with no young children.  Any adopter needs to be willing to let Serenity learn to trust them in her own time and not force affection or cuddling.

Serenity will need to find exactly the right home for her retirement.  This little girl is mostly blind and also hard of hearing.  After a short time, Serenity navigates like a champ, but will need a home without surprise steps and a fenced yard without hazards she could wander into.  Being on leash confuses her, so a fenced yard is a necessity. Serenity is great for the groomer and will need regular grooming.

After Serenity’s former owner passed away, her family took care of all her deferred veterinary care.  This included the extraction of all her teeth and clearing up skin issues, both of these issues were due to her not seeing a vet or being groomed for quite a long time.  As a result, Serenity is healthy and comfortable aside from a bit of arthritis which is common in older dogs.

Serenity posted for Smidget Rescue and is currently in a loving foster home in Burien, WA.  For additional information and an adoption application email

This is not an ODH dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
