Meet An Adoptable Dog

Estimated Birthdate: 6/11/2018

Reason for being in rescue: Bronx was found as a stray and landed at a NC shelter. Carolina Poodle Rescue pulled him from the shelter.
Special Needs: Bronx is neutered, up to date on vaccines and heartworm negative.
What kind of home would be best for me: Bsonx is looking for a home with another confident dog, someone home during the day, and plenty of treats and patience. We don't know what this boy's past was, but it didn't involve a lot of socialization. Bronx wants to be near people. He is a classic velcro dog. He is good with other dogs. We have not tested him with children, but given his reserved demeanor he is better suited for a home with children over 10.
What is my personality like: First meeting Bronx you see this timid guy who seems a little scared. Give it five minutes and you are looking a new best friend (give it three minutes with treats!). Bronx has a lot of potential. He’s bright, smart, and eager. He’s easily food motivated and he enjoys the company of people and other dogs. This dog is going to be one of the dogs that want to stay by your side constantly (a Velcro dog).
Bronx picks up on his people’s emotions quickly (he’s convinced he needs to be his person’s therapy dog). He’s still learning how to be more independent and confident in himself so he relies on cues from others (both people and dogs). Bronx thrives with a little bit of routine. It’s similar to how people tend to feel better when they know what event is going to happen next. It just helps him feel more certain and secure. It’s worth noting that he also sides into new routines pretty easily. He may take a minute to adjust (and who wouldn’t) and then he’s fine again. He loves to wrestle a bit but not roughly. He also likes to play with toys but only when he feels like it.
Bronx is clean in his crate it’s suggested he have one because that is his safe place. He would do fine if you just left it open so he can run into if he’s secure in the home but it’s definitely where he wants to go if he’s stressed. He’s just a little shy guy who wants someone to help him open up and explore all that potential!
How do I act when I first meet new people: Shy, but warms up quickly with treats
Tips and Tidbits: Bronx was found as a stray so we have no history on him. He has been aged at 3 years based on his overall health and condition. We've estimated his birthday as 6/11/2018.
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.
