My Story

Date into Rescue: 3/30/2021

Reason for being in rescue: Breeder Release

Special Needs: DJ is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. On 4/15/21 he had a dental and lost 1 tooth. DJ does have some hair loss from suspected flea allergies. Our vet also noted cataract development in both eyes.

What kind of home would be best for me: DJ is looking for a home as the only dog with an experienced, active family. Having never lived as a pet, this boy needs time and patience and persistence. Everything will be new - living in a house, walking on a leash, riding in a car, etc. DJ's ideal home has someone that is home during the day for socialization and lots of bathroom breaks as he learns the ropes of living in a home. Once he trusts you, this boy is an absolute love.

Teaching a young dog to be a beloved pet is not easy, but is always worth it. DJ is looking for the active home that will show him the ropes!

What is my personality like: DJ loves with his whole soul and it shows every time he stares at you with his wide, bright, eyes. He is shy when you first meet him but let him decompress and your looking at a energetic, sweet, attention stealing dog. DJ always manages to steal the spot light some way or the other! You could be surrounded by dogs and somehow he still manages to be the one that wiggled into your lap!

DJ would love to be able to go on walks and hikes although he may beg you to carry him the rest of the way if he gets tired (and who is gonna say no to those puppy eyes). He also loves other dogs and he looks up to his fellow dogs to know what to do. He would be happy to have another dog in the home to help him navigate the scary world around him. He would also like a crate (he is clean in a crate) to go to when he needs to get away from whatever may be stressing him out. He likes to snuggle it’s best to keep some blankets around for him. He would also appreciate you if you let him have a spot on the couch! Comfort is his best friend.

DJ loves toys, particularly stuffed animal toys, that he can just carry around with him when he wants. DJ is just looking for his forever home where his people can give him lots of attention and love!

How do I act when I first meet new people: Shy, but warms up with time

Tips and Tidbits: DJ's birthday is 7/28/2017. This age was provided by his breeder. DJ presents physically as older than 3.5 years.

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.

Potential Adopters

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.
