Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Poodle (Miniature) (long coat)
Weight: 12 lbs
Estimated Birthdate: 8/12/2007
Fence Needed: No
Location: Foster Home in Rocky Mount, NC
Reason for being in rescue: Teddy was lovingly surrendered to Carolina Poodle Rescue by owners who could no longer care for him.
Special Needs: Teddy had cataract surgery in February 2019. The surgery was minimally successful in restoring his vision. Teddy is completely blind in his left eye, but does have some vision in his right eye. He is also on a daily blood pressure medicine to help maintain low pressure in his eyes post-surgery. The cost of this medicine is $16 per month.
What kind of home would be best for me: Teddy is looking for a home where he can be the only dog. Too much activity is challenging for a boy with limited vision. Teddy would love a retired family with a lap he can sit in all day.
What is my personality like: Teddy is a great boy who wants a quiet life. Though he has limited vision, he is incredibly handi-capable. Teddy's favorite thing is a lap to sit in. He wants to be near his people and wants to be touched. He sleeps happily in the bed at night pressed closely against you. Teddy is living in a foster home with other dogs, but would really prefer to be the only dog. Other animals are competition for attention and can startle him due to his vision. Teddy's ideal home is with a retired family who is looking for a loving lap pet!
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
Tips and Tidbits:
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.
