Bea is best described as misunderstood. She was purchased as a puppy by owners who had no experience with dogs and she lived a fairly sheltered life for her first 3 years. She's had minimal exposure to other dogs and has been allowed to really run her home. When her owners could no longer manage her behavior they surrendered her to Carolina Poodle Rescue. Had we not said yes, Bea would have been euthanized for her behavior.
Bea is living in a foster home with an experienced owner. She is doing fine with the small dogs in the home and is learning to play with the large dogs. She is completely indifferent to cats, though she will occasionally bark if they startle her. Bea was adopted, but returned after 6 months for attempting to bite visitors and neighbors.
Bea is definitely a doodle with an attitude. She is accustomed to getting what she wants and this needs to be managed tightly. She enjoys toys, but at times these become prizes that she will protect with her teeth - this is called resource guarding. When this happens her foster home redirects her focus, removes the toy, and she has to earn that privilege back. She will also "claim" a piece of furniture as hers. Again, her focus has to be redirected and her ability to sit on a piece of furniture revoked until she earns the privilege back.
Bea is fully house and crate trained. She loves her crate and that is a safe place for her. She doesn't want any dogs getting close to her crate and will bark and let them know quickly. Foster mom will come sit beside her crate and talk calmly to assure her shes OK. Outside the house, Bee absolutely LOVES to run and play. She could play frisbee for hours and enjoys long walks and runs. Exercise is good for her physical and mental stimulation and she needs a home committed to a daily play and exercise routine.
Bea is a beautiful, young dog who needs very experienced owners. She has lived her entire life as an only dog. While she is coexisting peacefully with the other dogs in her foster home, it is only because her foster mom has a decade of experience managing dogs like Bea and she is constantly vigilent. Bea would be better as, and she really wants to be, the only dog. She is fine with cats. Bea cannot live in a home with children. She would do best in a quiet home where she gets plenty of exercise and has clear boundaries.
Bea has a lot of personality and is an incredibly affectionate dog to her one person. She needs boundaries and a firm owner who is comfortable managing her attitude.
