Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Labrador Retriever / Poodle (Standard) / Mixed (long coat)
Weight: 30 lbs
Estimated Birthdate: 10/29/2007
Fence Needed: No
Location: In Foster In Rocky Mount, NC
Reason for being in rescue: Pulled from a GA shelter. Doc was seized in neglect case and taken to the shelter.
Special Needs: skin issues
What kind of home would be best for me: Doc is still learning what it means to be someone's pet. He needs an experienced owner that will work with him to teach him basic commands, reward him with lots of positive affirmations, and give him the time and support he needs to blossom into the dog he can be.
What is my personality like: Seven dogs were seized in a neglect case and brought to Carolina Poodle Rescue. As there were seven, they were named for the seven dwarfs--this is Doc. None of the dogs had had much medical care before coming to Carolina Poodle Rescue. We think that none of them had ever been inside a house before either. All of the dogs from this situation were listed as miniature labradoodles. Doc is a sweet older guy who can still play like a puppy. He has a great temperament and personality in spite of being neglected for much of his life. In a home with a person or people to love him and provide him with stability and training, he would finally know what it's like to be part of a family. Imagine how he might blossom then! He already knows how to be clean in his crate which is a big step toward housetraining. Doc can be slightly dog selective but he gets a long really well with most dogs. He isn't food aggressive and knows how to politely take a treat when one is offered. We estimate Doc to be around 11 years old but don't tell him that! He doesn't know that he's an older guy. He still has a lot of playfulness in him and is ready to enjoy a whole new life!
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.
