Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Poodle (Miniature) (long coat)
Weight: 16 lb
Height: 12 in
Estimated Birthdate: 3/30/2008
Fence Needed: No
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Owner release to Loudon TN shelter/owner health is poor
Special Needs: Tucker was treated May 22 with the diroban type of treatment for heartworms. After 30 days of pre-treat with doxycycline, we used the two injections back to back method. He will need followup testing every six months until he tests negative. He will of course need to be on a monthly ivermectin based heartworm preventative (Triheart or Heartguard) for the rest of his life so this does not happen again.
What kind of home would be best for me: Tucker is looking for a quiet retirement home. Tucker gets along well with other small dogs and wouldn't mind a canine sibling. He does not like large dogs although he's getting better with the big guys. He does not like chaos or distractions, he will pace back and forth trying to get to the action. A home with a privacy fence where Tucker can have a yard all to himself would be amazing for him. We have not tested him with kids, but as long as the children respect Tucker we don't foresee an issue. Tucker needs a home with owners that are home a lot - he wants constant attention.
What is my personality like: Tucker is your classic velcro dog! He wants to be where you are and wants a human 24/7. Tucker is talkative and won't hesitate to tell you what he's feeling. He loves attention and wants to be babied. Tucker loves to be pet and would love a lap to sit in all day.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Tucker never meets a stranger- he loves all the attention!
Tips and Tidbits: Estimated birthdate 03/30/08
House trained: Tucker does not like a crate but I think he was house trained at one point. We're not using the crate for him although if he will eventually accept one, he will be crate 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.
