Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (short coat)
Weight: 16.10 lb
Estimated Birthdate: 2/25/2009
Fence Needed: No
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Hollis was found as a stray in NC. CPR pulled him from the shelter.
Special Needs: Hollis has some vision impairment and will be evaluated for his candidacy for cataract surgery.
What kind of home would be best for me: Hollis is a mature guy looking for an active, mature home. You can tell from the photos that this boy needs some caloric restriction and a more active life. Hollis is also best outside of a crate. His ideal home has someone at home during the day for all the snuggles and pets Hollis could desire.
What is my personality like: Hollis is a sweet old man. He doesn’t let his age, or his heft slow him down. He loves everyone, and we don’t think he ever met a treat he didn’t love. He walks fairly well on a lead, but should use a harness due to his cough when pressure is applied to his throat. He also likes to be carried, we wouldn’t want to burn off all those cookies. Hollis rides well in a car, he sniffed around for a few min and stood on the center console to say hi.
Hollis likes to be the center of attention, especially when treats are involved! If you ignore him, he woofs at you, and if you still don’t pay him attention, he will woof and stamp his little feet. Occasionally, when he hears something outside, he’ll bark a few times, but placing your hand on his back and telling him to be quiet usually does the trick. Grooming isn’t an issue with him, he doesn’t really mind. He will pick up a toy every now and again, but mainly likes to be scratched. If you can believe it, he will gobble down his food and look for more, meal time is best time for Hollis!
Hollis does fine with cats and other dogs, and doesn’t mark inside. He loves everyone, as everyone is a possible source of back scratches and cookies! He just wants to find a home that will love him even though he’s a little chunky. He has lots of love to give!
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Hollis has a heart as big as his overweight body. This precious chunk charms everyone he meets!
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.
