My Story

Date into Rescue:  11/12/2019

Reason for being in rescue:  Breeder Release

What kind of home would be best for me: Oscar is looking for his first ever home! He has learned to like canine buddies and has never been alone so another happy, gregarious dog (probably best if it is a girl) would be ideal. Oscar will blossom with obedience training. We believe a home with older children (12+ yrs) would work well. Oscar needs consistency in his routine as he learns how to be a pet. Oscar has high energy and would love an active hiking, running or biking family. Oscar is accepting of other large dogs, but no smaller dogs or cats.  

Oscar needs to learn to walk on a leash,  It’s a new skill.  Everything having to do with being a pet is a new skill but he’s learning quickly.

What is my personality like: Oscar is a perfectly curious and happy poodle. Oscar will happily play a game of fetch, but he hasn't figured out yet to bring it back. He enjoys exploring new things and is ready to see the world. 'Let's go on an adventure' is Oscar's life motto.

How do I act when I first meet new people: Oscar will look at you eagerly for attention. When you approach him, he will then shy away. Toys (see below) and treats are the way to Oscar's heart and opens up his sunny personality. 

Tips and Tidbits: (11/21/15) Oscar has only known the life of a breeder kennel. Oscar's new family will need to introduce him to living in a home - teaching him things that make noises and beeps are safe, as well as normal dog obedience. We think Oscar will do wonderfully with an owner who uses positive reinforcement for training. 

Toys - Oscar will shred and eat stuffed toys, rope bones etc. He will need toys which are heavy duty or be observed when he plays with soft toys. Soft toys and items will need to be kept out of his reach. This can cause an intestinal blockage or further damage. This is a stress behavior for him to release energy. With the right direction, Oscar can find other outlets for his energy. 

House trained:  Oscar does keep his crate dry. This will be essential for Oscar to have a crate in his new as he learns good doggie manners. 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.
