My Story

Date into Rescue: 9/9/2017

Reason for being in rescue: One of Hurricane Irma's orphans.

Special Needs: None noted

What kind of home would be best for me? I would love a home with lots of exercise and playtime, maybe a field to run in and play and at the end of the day when my family and I are all tuckered out we can go lay on a comfy bed in front of a fireplace! Dreams can come true, right: 

What is my personality like: I am nothing but sweet! I'm still getting used to everything around here but considering everything I've been through (hurricane Irma and moving so much during rescue) my caregivers say I'm doing great! I like to howl at the moon when I'm outside at night like a true-to-breed hound and I love to play with people and give hugs! I love to explore, I would make a fabulous tracking dog with the right training. That is what I feel like I'm supposed to do! Sniffing and hunting things down. 

I can be head strong, just like any other stubborn hound dog.. but with the right people I'm working through them. I would prefer to be the only dog since I can be dog selective but I'm not against meeting your 4 legged members to see if I will like them!

How do I act when I first meet new people? I am sweet and loving  a bit shy at first but I warm up to you between snacks and rubbing behind my ears. :)

Tips and Tidbits: Estimated Birthdate: 7/18/2015.  I'm really smart. I am highly treat motivated and know how to sit, hand shake, lay down and when my caregiver said play dead I even rolled over on my back belly up!

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.

Thank you for considering CPR!
