Estimated Birthdate: 1/14/2009
Fence Needed: No
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Date into rescue: 10/14/2015 (original date); Curly was adopted and returned in 2018
Reason for being in rescue? Curly was originally surrendered by his owners due to health and finance. He was returned to CPR in 2018 due to separation anxiety
Special Needs? None
What kind of home would be best for me? Curly needs a quiet home where he can follow someone around and cuddle with them on the couch. Curly is a great dog, but he can be aggressive. He needs a strong owner that will manage his behavior. He would do best in a home with no children and possibly no other dogs. He is fine with other dogs that stay out of his personal space, but will snap when they come too close.
What is my personality like? Curly was adopted in 2015 but was just recently returned due to separation anxiety in the home. Curly is a little stand off-ish at first and it may seem that he doesn't care for people, but It's actually the complete opposite. He is shy and hard of trusting when meeting new people, but once he trusts you, you will be what he looks forward to every day. This guy has had his home taken out from under his paws twice now, he just wants to be with someone that is willing to look past his issues and help him along. Curly knows how to sit and loves soft treats. He also has walked great on a leash so far. Curly's caregivers say he is not a marathon runner, but instead a dog that appreciates a nice comfy couch and someone to trust and cuddle next to, maybe even share a bag of chips! Curly is selective about the dogs he accepts. With some he is indifferent; with others he will growl and snap at them. When things don't go his way, Curly will show teeth. He is a sweet boy who has been allowed to run the house. He needs a strong, structured home.
How do I act when I meet new people? Friendly, but shy.
Tips and Tidbits: None noted
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.
