Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Labrador Retriever / Poodle (Standard) (long coat)
Weight: 63.4 lb
Height: 26 in
Estimated Birthdate: 9/26/2006
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Adoption Fee:$200 with my lady Annie ($200 for both dogs)
Reason for being in rescue: Owner release, owner's spouse passed away and the surviving spouse can not afford the dogs financially and physically can't offer them the life they need
Special Needs: Jackson is prone to get skin tags/warts that will need monitored and, when necessary, may have to be removed. On 9/11/18 our vet removed several and a sample has been sent out for biopsy. Once the biopsy returns, we can help his new family formulate a strategy for this stately older gentleman. Wen are hoping he will not need this procedure done again but only time will tell.
What kind of home would be best for me: The best home for Jackson and Annie will be one with another gregarious, happy large dog or someone who understands that when Jackson passes, Annie will most likely need another buddy. Jackson is a senior and Annie is not but Annie has never been without Jackson and looks to him for guidance. She warms up to people as long as Jackson tells her it's okay. I've seen Annie warm up to dog savvy people quickly, but we are pretty certain that Annie will need another buddy to play with. The two are house dogs, accustomed to being part of every day life and right in the middle of their loving family and that is what they want again.
What is my personality like? Jackson is the epitome of a perfect senior doodle - happy, gregarious, funny, intelligent, laid back but inquisitive and always ready to be part of things. He's simply wonderful. Here's notes from his current caregiver: "Jackson is a very sweet boy. He gets along with all people and I’ve never seen him aggressive with a dog, big or small. He seems to be moderate energy. He will run around with you and get excited but also loves to sit and cuddle. Didn’t play with toys very much but loved treats. Pulled a little on the leash but responded well when I pulled him back. Jackson is just a sweet man who’d be great with a family who wants to take him on walks and then cuddle with him throughout the day."
How do I act when I first meet new people: There are no new people, only people waiting to be my friend.
Tips and Tidbits: I picked Jackson and Annie up from their owner and I know first hand how very much the two were loved. There were a lot of tears and a lot of thank you's for this very kind man truly had no idea what he was going to do and was facing major surgery the week we were able to pick up the dogs. Mostly we rescue dogs - but sometimes we rescue people. He's a wonderful dog owner in a bad spot and I am glad we were there. I can't wait to give him a call and let him know his precious dogs are in a new home and much loved. Please help me make that call a reality.
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.
