Reason for being in rescue: Daniel was part of a group of dogs seized from a home. CPR partnered with a local shelter to help these animals.
Special Needs: Daniel arrived at CPR with several issues we have been working to address. He is allergic to fleas and had hair loss from untreated fleas. He is responding well to monthly preventatives and his coat is growing in. Daniel has a maturing cataract in his left eye. Finally, Daniel has ankylosis disco spondylitis with fusion of L4 and L5 and partial fusion of L1 through L3. These fancy words means he has some muscular and neurological conditions that make him walk differently.
What kind of home would be best for me: Daniel is a special boy looking for a special home. An unknown injury has left him with mobility issues. He is not a dog that is going to go on daily walks with you. He is a dog that will enjoy a small basket of toys and a soft floor to play in with a lap to snuggle in most of the day. Given his size and injury, Daniel is safest with adults who can be extra gentle with him.
What is my personality like: The night we met Daniel we knew that he was different and special and that he needed help. He was tucked away in the corner of a kennel in a crate for his safety. Early suspicions were a broken neck. Thankfully that was not true! We don't know what Daniel's injury may have been, but we know that it makes him walk a little special. We also know that he a lot of life and personality.
Daniel's forever family will fall in love with all that makes him special. His tenacious spirit. His gentle eyes. His complete trust in people he meets. His willingness to live life to its fullest in spite of a "disability". He has the heart of a lion!
Daniel has quite the personality. He loves to snuggle and will give the best kisses. Reach down to pick him up and he will all but jump into your arms for a hug. He does like to bark and is possessive about his crate. This has always been his safe space and he does not want to share it with other dogs (we can't blame him). Despite his injury, Daniel still likes to play. He even enjoys engaging with other dogs that are gentle.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly and sweet
Tips and Tidbits: Estimated Birthdate: 2/26/2012. Daniel clearly has a strong spirit and lots of life to live!
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.
