My Story

Date into Rescue: 12/31/2019

Reason for being in rescue: Clifford was surrendered by his breeder.

Special Needs: Clifford was neutered on 1/9/2020. He is now ready for his forever home.

What kind of home would be best for me:  Clifford needs an experienced dog owner with time and patience.  It’s 50 first dates with this guy. 2 steps forward and 1 step back but you do see slow, steady progress. Clifford needs another large dog in the home to show him what being a pet and trusting humans can look like. 

What is my personality like: Clifford is a watcher.  He’s very observant and attentive. He knows the routine of going outside to potty and if you let him he shoots right back inside to his safe crate. He interacts and tries to play with the other dogs in his cottage. Dogs are familiar and safe. Clifford just needs to learn that humans are also safe and kind. 

How do I act when I first meet new people:  Clifford is very shy when he meets new people. He has had very little experience with people but he is curious. He was raised in a kennel with not many human caregivers. His life was filled with dogs. He needs to learn more about humans. 

Tips and Tidbits: Clifford's birthday is 6/6/2018.

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.
