What kind of home would be best for me: Magdalene is not for a first time dog owner. She needs someone experienced with small dogs. She'd love a home with another small dog to play with and learn from. She also would do well with older kids in the home. She would be okay in a home that has people visiting and in and out, she does very well with strangers.
What is my personality like: Magdalene came to Carolina Poodle Rescue as part of a large group of small dogs that were seized in a local puppy mill bust. For a puppy mill rescue, Magdalene is very social with dogs and people. Madalene is a happy, active girl. She can be shy and needs to continue to build confidence, but is well on her way. She is wiggly and giggly and is glad to see her caregivers when they walk into a room. Magdalene can be a little timid when she first sees you, but she warms up quickly.
Magdalene enjoys playing with other dogs and playing with balls. She is highly food and treat motivated and will inhale her food as quickly as possible. Magdalene is one of the more playful and friendly dogs of the group that joined our rescue.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly but timid
Tips and Tidbits: Magdalene's estimated birthday is 1/15/2012.
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.
