Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Dachshund / Alaskan Malamute / Mixed (medium coat)
Weight: about 32 lbs
Height: about 12 in at the shoulder
Estimated Birthdate: 1/6/2013
Fence Needed: Farley would love a fence to run around in, but it is not a necessity.
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Adoption Fee:$1, I am special
Reason for being in rescue: Farley was originally found as a stray in SC and taken to a local shelter. CPR pulled him from the shelter. Farley was adopted and lived in a home for almost a year. He was returned to CPR in 2018 when his owners were unable to manage his behavior - his epilepsy was just starting and was not controlled
Special Needs: Farley is an epileptic - controlled. He is takes medication 3 times per day. The medication he is on is called Keppra (generic name Levetiracetam). This can be purchased at Walmart or Chewy.com and runs roughly .35 cents per day). He MUST have his dose every 8 hours so please make sure your schedule allows this.
What kind of home would be best for me: Farley would do best in a high energy experienced home with no other animals. He is fabulous with people, and wants all the belly rubs in the world! Farley needs a home where he has experienced dog owners, that can manage his behavior and his seizures. Farley is picky about his canine friends. Because of this he isn't well suited for dog park visits. That's okay - as long as you have a ball at home and a fenced yard he is completely happy!
What is my personality like: Farley originally came into the rescue from a South Carolina shelter as a stray. He was adopted a few months later but recently returned due to not getting along with other dogs. While he was here with us the first time, Farley got along great with other dogs, but that did not work when he was in a home. We think once he is comfortable in his own space and claims his home he does not like to share his things and will resource guard toys, his crate, and sometimes even people. Other than that he is a joy to be around!
Farley is very wiggly and so happy with his caregivers! He really doesn't meet a stranger. He adores toys, especially tennis balls and will play with his toys all day until the cows come home. Farley is also very intelligent, and will do anything for a treat. He knows how to sit, lay down, stay, and possibly even a few more. He loves people, there is not a shy bone in his body. His previous adopters had a wisdom panel DNA test on him. We had him listed as a corgi but it turns out, he is not a Corgi at all! His main breeds are Alaskan Malamute, Chow Chow, Dachshund, Golden/Lab Retriever. A true Heinz 57 pup that is looking for someone to understand his needs. We've left corgi on his description simply because he is long and low looking like a corgi.
Farley is a staff favorite around our rescue. He is always up for a game of ball and always eager for belly rubs. If you are looking for a long and low buddy to go on adventures with, he'd love to be your companion!
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Farley has a lot of potential - he just needs an experienced owner to give him a chance!
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.
