Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Poodle (Miniature) (long coat)
Weight: 15 lb
Height: 12 in
Estimated Birthdate: 6/17/2012
Fence Needed: Yes - Honey needs the security and safety around her that a physical fence provides. She will only go to a home where her safety and security is taken into consideration and that includes a fence. She also loves to run and play.
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Adoption Fee:$1 I am special
Reason for being in rescue: Breeder release/retiring from breeding
Special Needs: timid and afraid, she needs time to adjust to humans
What kind of home would be best for me: We are seeking a home with an experienced dog owner and someone who is home more than they're away. Do you have experience with very shy dogs. Do you have patience and the ability to win trust. Do you have at least one more gregarious small dog. Do you want to give a dog a home who needs a home - not for you but to see a dog thrive. If so, Honey may be right for you.
What is my personality like: Honey is a very very shy dog. She will run from you and bark at you. She likes women better than men, but that may be simply because we have more women then men here and that is what she is now used to. If she is outside, she will bark at any person who passes by, but she is rather quiet inside. We do think she can be very sweet once she gets used to people, but she has a while to go.
When Honey is happy she is a delight to watch. She raises her head and looks at you with big, beautiful eyes that make you want to just hold her but that is something your going to have to earn. Her crate is her very safe space and she will need that security in her new home, her own small space to go in when she feels overwhelmed. She is not a gate or door dodger which is good. She bonds to her place and wants to stay there. We do think a fenced in yard is essential because she has no clue what a leash is and that is going to take time to teach.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Very, very shy.
Tips and Tidbits: Honey had a problem with a litter and had a c section. Rather than let her nurse anyway, her breeder/owner at the time felt it was best to go ahead and send her to retirement. Honey missed her pups terribly and it took a long time for her to get over that.
For touch, she is sensitive to having her ears and head being touched. Her favorites are chest and rear scratches. Those make her smile! Honey is a project - and great big, beautiful project.
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.
