Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Poodle (Standard) (long coat)
Weight: 61 lbs
Height: Estimated 30 in
Estimated Birthdate: 10/12/2014
Fence Needed: Yes
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Boston was surrendered to CPR due to a history of biting.
Special Needs: Boston has a history of nipping out of fear or pain. He needs a very experienced, patient owner to work with him.
What kind of home would be best for me: Boston needs a stable, consistent home with an owner experienced with head strong dogs. It would be best if Boston went to a home with no other neighbors, he does bark and whine when seeing his friends leave!
What is my personality like: Boston is a high energy, go-getter type of dog. You will never have to wonder what it is he does or doesn't want/appreciate.. he will let you know! He was released to the rescue with a bite history generated from pain or fear. Since he has been with us we have not seen any bittng but we also have been careful not to provoke him.
Boston loves playing, back scratches, and car rides! He needs plenty of exercise to help stimulate his mind. So far he has done fine with the dogs and one cat he has met. When first meeting him he may bark, but give him time, treats and a back scratch and he will warm up to you. Boston does know basic commands but for some reason when asking him to do one of them he does growl. We think it's just because he is a bit stubborn and does not like being told what to do! He is a leader- not a follower and will need a special owner to teach him manners.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Cautious
Tips and Tidbits: Boston does come with a bite history. He has only bitten/nipped when afraid or had pain.
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.
