Breed: Poodle (Standard) (long coat)
Weight: Estimated 40 lbs
Height: Estimated 22 in at the shoulder
Estimated Birthdate: 6/14/2016
Fence Needed: Yes, I am full of energy and need plenty of room to bounce around.
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Date into rescue: 12/11/2017
Reason for being in rescue? Owner release/ Behavioral issues
Special Needs?Some behavioral issues per previous owner - needs training and guidance, prefer an only dog home
What kind of home would be best for me? I would do best in an adult only home with owners that are experienced with headstrong, energetic poodles. I would greatly benefit from extra training. Since I need to work on my training, it would be best for me to be the only dog in my home. I am totally fine with cats - I pretty much ignore them.
What is my personality like? You can just call me Mr.Personality. I prance around this place like I own it! Confidence is key. What led me to the farm is my previous owners could no longer deal with some of my behavior issues. They sent me to a trainer- I did well with her.. but once back in my home environment I took 2 steps back. I can be reactive towards new people and mainly dogs but the longer I am here at the farm, the more I improve. I have had interaction with a standard poodle like me and we did just fine together. I am extremely athletic, I could run until the cows come home! Give me a football and the outdoors and I am as happy as can be. Food and toys is what motivates me, I will nearly do anything for those. I know my basic commands but since I am so bouncy it can be hard to get me to concentrate. I really need a home where my wild spirit and energy is welcomed with opened arms. And remember - in poodle years I am still a puppy.
How do I act when I meet new people? I bark at new people but with a few treats and patience It will be no time before I am leaping towards you for attention.
Tips and Tidbits: I was released to CPR due to me being aggressive towards new people and other dogs in previous home. I've met so many people here that I am starting to understand there are a LOT of people in this world and I don't need to bark at them all.
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.
