Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Poodle (Standard) / Labrador Retriever (long coat)
Weight: 33 lbs
Height: 21 in est
Estimated Birthdate: 4/7/2013
Fence Needed: Preferred -for the right home with a good plan for off leash exercise twice per week, we will consider a non fenced home.
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Owner release- cannot handle
Special Needs: Lily has spay incontinence. She takes both proin 50 mg am and pm and incurin 1 mg once per day in the morning to control her incontinence. Incurin is .67 cents per day and proin is .34 cents per day at 1800petmeds. Even with her medications, Lily has some leakage during the day and at night. Incontinence issues have to be monitored constantly. We're also teaching her to wear a diaper. She looks cute!
What kind of home would be best for me: Lily's new owner will understand her incontinence needs and keep her on her medications for life. She will need monitoring. She's worth it. Lily would enjoy one other happy dog companion in her home (preferably the same size) or she would be happy as an only dog.
What is my personality like: Lily is a vivacious, sweet doodlebug! She was immediately excited to go out on an adventure of any sort. She frolicked about me as we strode through the grass for good vantage points. She is a guard barker! She would make for a good doorbell. She greets you when you come to her area however. She can be dog aggressive, but that seems to be when there's a lot of excitement such as dogs outside her fence.
She knows sit, and is somewhat treat motivated (as long as it's yummy!). Exercise needs could be variable, I feel like she'd be happy on long walks as much as movie marathons on the couch.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Shy when first meeting new people. She may bark but once she warms up to you she is attached at your hip and VERY needy. In the sweetest way!
Tips and Tidbits: Birthdate 4/7/13. She does great with other dogs but she is not afraid to put one in their place if needed. She will chase a ball every now and again but prefers to just have attention. She is bouncy when she is excited, and that's normally when she see's her people. She is a picky eater and eats slow. She does like treats but doesn't know basic commands.
LILY'S MEDICATIONS ARE FOR LIFE. SHE WILL ALWAYS HAVE TO BE MONITORED AND SHE MAY ALWAYS HAVE A BIT OF LEAKAGE AT NIGHT. PLEASE DO NOT THINK THIS CAN BE FIXED. IT CAN'T. IT IS A MANAGEMENT FOR LIFE PROBLEM.
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.
