Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (medium coat)
Weight: 14.2 lb
Height: 13 in
Estimated Birthdate: 9/21/2016
Fence Needed: No
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Marty Doodle was left tied to the outside of an animal shelter in GA by his owners. CPR pulled him from the shelter.
Special Needs: Horrible ears - we've resolved the infection but he will need to be watched for life on his ears. It's probably allergy related.
What kind of home would be best for me: Marty Doodle requires a special home that would be willing to work around his quirks and help him become the dog he has the potential to be. He needs an experienced dog owner with the patience to earn his trust.
What is my personality like: Marty's behavior leads us to believe that his past has not been the best, and he doesn't understand why he was abandoned, tied to the outside of the animal shelter. When first meeting Marty Doodle, it can be a little alarming. He barks, and he will nip at you if you do not give him time to adjust before approaching him to give him attention. It seems like he has not had any basic training or know what it is really like to be someone's pet. Leashes scare him, and he is just now getting around to chasing tennis balls. However, Marty does like treats and this is the way to his heart. So far he has gotten along with other dogs he has met but he does bark at them like he's never been around other dogs before. We know this boy deserves to have a special person help him, and we hope we can do that for him!
How do I act when I first meet new people: Cautious and nervous
Tips and Tidbits: Marty Doodle is a special boy, and needs a special human to understand him.
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.
