Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Poodle (Miniature) (long coat)
Weight: 11 lb
Height: 12 in
Estimated Birthdate: 2/1/2007
Fence Needed: No
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Adoption Fee:$1 I am special
Reason for being in rescue: Owner release to a NC shelter/can't care for
Special Needs: 2/6 Heart Mummer, Slowly healing laceration involving trans section of distal carpal flexors. Nuclear sclerosis which is caused by compression of older lens fibers in the nucleus by new fiber formation. The denser construction of the nucleus causes it to scatter light. Leg injury - Freydo's injury has healed but laceration of tendons has caused hyperflexion of carpus which may not improve what we are seeing now, this may need to be surgically corrected by joint fusion or soft tissue surgery and support casting.
What kind of home would be best for me: Freydo needs a home where he can heal properly and live out the rest of his retirement! He is considered a senior but has a heart full of energy! The best home for him would be where he can be the only dog so the attention could solely be on him. Preferably somewhere that the owner is home a lot more than they are away. Freydo needs a home that is willing to educate themselves with Freydo's medical history and whats on going in his life right now!
What is my personality like: Freydo may be a senior but acts like his spirit is still a young pup! Freydo loves attention and loves to be sitting in your lap or jumping up on you for you to pet him! He is a very loving dog and is still very curious about the world and life! Once he has been sitting with you for a short time he finds himself on the back of the couch just watching life happen out the window!
How do I act when I first meet new people: Excited and happy
Tips and Tidbits: Est birthdate 02/01/2007 Freydo is healing from a leg injury but is doing so well. This is hard to hear - and we do not know why but when Freydo was brought to the shelter, the skin on his front left leg was basically flayed from his body, exposing bone and tendon. He could not extend his leg down and put any weight on it anymore. Thanks to a lot of caring vets and a miracle bandage called a Medical Manuka Honey dressing, Freydo's leg is healing. (Yes there is an ongoing investigation of this case.) He may never be totally and fully weight bearing or able to straighten his leg but he is able to function. At one time, we thought he would have to have his leg amputated so this is a great improvement for a very sweet boy.
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.
