Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Poodle (Miniature) (long coat)
Weight: est 10 lb
Estimated Birthdate: 8/27/2013
Fence Needed: No
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Owner release- Bear has been rehomed on more than one occasion. The first reason for rehoming is another dog in he home bullied him. The second time he was rehomed an owl attacked another dog in the home and the owners were afraid for Bear's safety.
Special Needs: Bear is epileptic. He takes a daily dose of Keppra to manage his condition. This medicine is critical to Bear's overall health and he will be on it the rest of his life.
What kind of home would be best for me: Bear has changed homes far too frequently for his young life. He is looking for a retired individual or couple that are committed to his daily meds, will walk him on a regular basis, and afford him a quiet, safe home where Bear will be the prince he is destined for. Bear needs to be the only dog.
What is my personality like: Like the brown bear, Bear has had to be tough to survive and thrive during his first 5 years. He's been bullied by another dog, attacked by an owl, and allowed his epilepsy to go untreated for several years. None of these are good. But Bear has not let life or illness keep him down!
Bear is the sweetest boy ever, though he can be a bit needy. He has to be underfoot, and will cry for attention when you crate him. He is social with everyone, and always happy to see his caregivers. When it comes to other dogs, he likes his own space, and will growl when another dog violates it. He would probably do best as an only dog. He does have a prey drive, but his size makes him more manageable with it.
Baer picks at his food, and is cautious when taking a treat. He does like to run around, as well as stay underfoot. He can also be a bit cool, even though he is a friendly dog. He rides well in a car once he gets to the front seat where he thinks he belongs. Bear enjoys going for rides, but is most interested in meeting people when he gets where he is going.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Generally Bear is friendly with new faces. He warms up more quickly to women than men.
Tips and Tidbits: Epilepsy is very manageable with medicine. Bear is responding well to his new medical protocol and is ready for a forever home!
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.
