My Story

Date into Rescue: 02/28/2019

Reason for being in rescue: Dino was surrendered to a local shelter when his family moved and couldn't take him. CPR pulled him from the local shelter.

Special Needs: None noted

What kind of home would be best for me: Dino is a great boy who needs to be the only dog in a quiet home with no children. He bonds to his people quickly but does not like to share. He also does not like to be left. Dino's ideal home is a retiree who is looking for a lap pet.

What is my personality like: Dino is full of personality! This young boy can be a bit timid when he first meet you, but that changes the moment he gets to know you. Dino is looking for a person. He wants someone that is home all the time and doesn't want to share him with other dogs or many other people. Dino will resource guard his person, but is corrected easily. Given this, we do not recommend a home with children.

Dino is leash and crate trained. He does very well with house training in his foster home. He loves the companionship of people and is the best snuggle buddy in a bed at night. Dino hasn't interacted with toys much in his foster home - he is more interested in getting all the attention from his foster mom!

How do I act when I first meet new people: A little shy, but warms up quickly!

Tips and Tidbits: Dino's family moved out of the US and couldn't take him. He's looking for a home where he will never be alone again!

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.

Potential Adopters

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.
