Special Needs?Homie is lightly heartworm positive (HW+). He will be sent home with a year supply of heartworm medication. He is being treated with a method called the slow kill treatment. He takes a monthly Ivermectin based heartworm preventative and needs to be re-tested for heartworms every 6 months. Once he tests negative, then he can take any kind of heartworm preventative; he is not restricted to Ivermectin based only. PLEASE NOTE our heartworm positive dogs MUST be kept on this method of treatment. Make sure to talk with you vet about this method before submitting an application.
What kind of home would be best for me? A happy home that will teach me and mold me. I really want to be an only dog. I shared my life with a sister but she is older and I want to play.
What is my personality like? Homie has really come out of his shell in the time he has been with us. He was fearful and shut down originally but no more. Now he's ready to play.
How do I act when I meet new people? Distracted - Home is busy looking at all the sights and sounds and new friends so he's a little scattered at first.
Tips and Tidbits: My sister and I were released to a GA shelter because our owner had a life-style change. My sister was adopted and I am glad for her cause she is older and that takes longer. Now I need to learn some life skills and I will turn into the poodle you want me to be. Homie's back end looks very different from his front - his hair is not the pretty curly tight curls of a poodle. It is straight and a darker color. This usually means there was scarring to his skin. Our best guess is flea allergy dermatitis.
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.
