Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Labrador Retriever / Poodle (Standard) / Mixed (medium coat)
Weight: 46 lb
Height: 24 in
Estimated Birthdate: 8/30/2018
Fence Needed: Yes
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: breeder release/puppy who did not sell
Special Needs: David came from a breeder, a puppy who did not sell. He was kennel raised and will need time and patience to learn how to be a pet. David must go to a home with an experienced dog owner. He is not for the first time dog owner. He has behavior quirks that need an experienced dog owner to correct.
What kind of home would be best for me: David needs an experienced dog owner and someone who is knowledgeable with training, David has some nipping issues. Its only happening when he gets really excited. He could benefit from another large dog being in the house but doesn't have to have one. David needs a home with high exercise and lots of activities to keep him busy. No children under the age of 18 is a must for him at this time. David needs a lot of structure and routine in his life. He needs training and behavior modification. He gets very stressed and will bark until he is comfortable again.
What is my personality like: David takes some time to warm up, a little longer than most, but once he does he is very energetic and is ready to play! David does have some small nipping issues especially with hands when he gets to excited. He does get a little uneasy when other dogs invade his personal space too much. David is also social with other dogs. He has a large playgroup that he hangs out with everyday and does really well with. He gets stressed in his crate and barks a lot while in there. David will need training and will need full on exercise everyday. David is great with other dogs. It is humans he is very unsure about. David will need time, a lot of time, to fully understand what it means to be a pet. He may never fully make the transition to pampered pooch but we're hoping someone out there with experience and time will see his beautiful face and want to help him try.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Timid and shy, takes time to warm up
Tips and Tidbits: Birthdate 8/30/2018
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.
