Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Poodle (Miniature)
Weight: 12 lb
Height: 12 in
Estimated Birthdate: 3/17/2012
Fence Needed: preferred but will consider on a case by case basis
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: owner release/wife died and husband can not care for the poodles
Special Needs: Cataracts, has had a major dental done and regular dentals are critical for the future
What kind of home would be best for me: Draco needs an experienced dog owner home who will give him time and space and patience. We prefer a fenced in yard but will consider life without one with someone who is very, very diligent about watching when doors are opened and what is on the other side. He does not yet know how to walk on a leash with any confidence. Fenced in yard have been part of his life always.
What is my personality like: Draco is a good boy who needs someone with a bit of patience. He is laid back, doesn’t mind other dogs in his space, and could care less about a cat.
This guy wants food, scratches, and a Netflix marathon. This isn’t a dog you’ll take hiking, unless he’s in a sling over your shoulder. He’s happy to help people finish what’s on your plate and clean your floor of crumbs. He isn’t a barker, and I’ve never seen him get aggressive. He does need to be professionally groomed, but he’s fine with that. Not big on toys, but he will be happy to snatch a treat out of your hand in a heartbeat. Just watch your thumbs. After he gets to know you, he makes a great lap dog, sweet, calm, and likes to snuggle. He would be fine with or without other dogs. He would make a lonely person who is home a lot a wonderful snuggle companion.
How do I act when I first meet new people: He is a little skiddish at first, but warms up quick if you give him treats. I gave him some Vienna sausages and now he loves me.
Tips and Tidbits: Draco's estimated birthdate is 03/17/2012 per his previous owner but we are not sure if that is correct. He could be a bit older or a bit younger. There was no information provided at all when we picked him up. Life the last few years has been tough and it's hard to tell. He is for sure an old soul.
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.
