Special Needs? Where do I start with his physical condition: Prince has not been well cared for and was probably not well bred. He has an enlarged heart (4 out of 6 murmur) and is on medications to support that. He gets ear infections easily and they hurt him. And he has periodontal disease and needs regular dental cleanings.
What kind of home would be best for me: We are seeking a home with an experienced dog owner and someone who is home more than they're away. Prince is not an easy character and is going to challenge his new owner. He needs attention, loving direction and leadership.
What is my personality like: Prince isn't much of a prince right now but in the right hands we think he will improve. He is crate and food aggressive. He's bad to mark his territory - but he will happily wear a belly band (a male diaper). He loves to lounge and lay in the sun and he amazingly likes to be given a bath. He does well with other dogs and while he does not play, he co-exists peacefully. He does NOT like to be picked up and will snap if you try to do so.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Cauious
Tips and Tidbits: If he is comfy and someone comes along to move him, he can be grumpy so he needs an experienced owner in a home without children. When Prince is happy, he gives a little smile. The caregivers at the farm think his smile shows that he has a playful side. In the right home and with the right people, that playful side could come out. Love and security can do amazing things for a little guy like Prince.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
