Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Belgian Shepherd Malinois / Hound / Mixed (long coat)
Weight: 54 lbs
Height: estimated 22" at the shoulder
Estimated Birthdate: 1/1/2008
Fence Needed: Yes, I really need a fence.
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Date into rescue: 9/9/2017
Reason for being in rescue? I'm one of Hurricane Irma's orphans
Special Needs?none noted- I do have a small mass on the right side of my eye but I am in no pain
What kind of home would be best for me? I need a active home that could possibly give me a job to do!
What is my personality like? I am a hurricane Irma orphan that was rescued with a few others by Carolina Poodle Rescue. One of the "breed experts" here believes I am a Belgian Shepherd Malinois hound mix and I have the personality to go with it. No, these people do not know my past but they do see I have a drive for something. What that something is we have not figured out yet. I am pretty independent right now, I don't need loads of attention or gushy baby talk because I am an adult dog and don't have time for those silly things. My caregiver thinks that I can learn to bond with someone but it will take a special person to bring that out in me. Who knows... maybe I have gone a long time without being a family dog and may need to learn how to be that. I am very assertive and alert, you can't sneak anything by me! I don't miss a beat. One of my caregivers say I have a lot of potential to become something great and the want to go with it. I am not the happiest here... all I do when I am outside is stare out the fence and bark because I desire so deeply to be a part of the action.
How do I act when I meet new people? Friendly but I pay more attention to things going on around me.
Tips and Tidbits: I do not walk on a leash very well, I pull with all of my might but that can be helped with the right kind of harness and training. I am very treat motivated and I know how to sit and give hand shakes.
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.
