Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Labrador Retriever / Poodle (Standard) / Mixed (long coat)
Weight: 41 lbs
Height: 20 in
Estimated Birthdate: 2/19/2016
Fence Needed: Yes
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Annie was removed from her breeder by animal control and landed at the shelter. Carolina Poodle Rescue pulled her from the shelter.
Special Needs: Annie was spayed and had a dental on 2/24/21. She is up to date on all vaccines and heartworm negative.
What kind of home would be best for me: Annie is a retired breeding dog. She has never lived in a home as a pet. Everything, and every experience is new. She requires an experienced owner that is committed to her ongoing socialization and training. Annie's forever home must have another large, confident dog that she can play with and learn from. Her family has experience with rescue and understands how to patiently build trust and socialize a dog. She is not well suited for a home with young children (under 8).
What is my personality like: Annie is a F1 labradoodle. She was removed from her breeder by a local animal control officer. Annie has been largely under-socialized and does not understand what living as a pet means. She arrived in rescue with her 2 friends Macey and Dixie. Of the three girls, Annie is definitely the most social.
Annie is as sweet as they come. She is curious about everyone and everything. Since arriving in rescue in February, Annie has been making very good progress on socialization. She was the first to proactively to come up to her caregivers and ask for and allow human touch. All it took was one gentle pet and Annie was hooked. She has learned that human hands are gentle and kind, that butt scratches feel great, and that you can even curl up on a couch with people. She doesn't yet know how to cuddle - mostly because she's so excited she just can't sit still - but she wants to be near you.
Annie loves food. She is eager to please and will work for treats. She eats in an area with her pals Macey and Dixie and they frequently share bowls. She absolutely loves other dogs, not really a surprise given her background. She is an easy dog to put into play groups as she genuinely gets along with all creatures. Her caregivers say she even has a crush on one of our male dogs, always seeking him out and wagging her tail happily when she finds him.
Annie is a work in progress, but boy is she worth it! She has quickly adjusted to rescue life and learning what living as a companion means. We cannot wait to watch this girl's transformation with her forever family!
How do I act when I first meet new people: Timid, but she warms up
Tips and Tidbits: Annie's estimated birthday is 2/19/2016. This estimate is based on information provided by her breeder and her overall health and condition.
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.
