My Story

Date into Rescue: 10/19/2021

Reason for being in rescue: Lovingly surrendered by owners

Special Needs: Sully is up to date on vaccines and heartworm negative. He will be neutered 11/4/21 and will be ready for adoption 11/6/21. SULLY IS HALF OF A BONDED PAIR. HE AND ELLIE WILL ONLY BE ADOPTED TO A HOME TOGETHER.

What kind of home would be best for me: Sully is half of a bonded pair with his "sister" Ellie. They have been together their entire lives and will only be adopted to a home together. Sully is a young, active dog that needs lots of physical exercise. He can be selective about other dogs, especially male dogs. Sully and Ellie need a home where they will be the only dogs. No cats, please. They need an active family that is committed to the physical and mental exercise these pups need every day. No couch potatoes here!

What is my personality like: Sully and his "sister" Ellie have always been together. We are their third stop and are committed to finding their perfect forever. Sully and Ellie were purchased from a breeder by a family that decided they didn't want them. At 1 year old they were rehomed into a home where there was a large pack of large dogs. It was too many dogs and too much energy. Sadly Sully started growling at one of the labs in the home, so the owners decided to rehome the pair before something escalated and they had an issue. So here Sully & Ellie are. The only thing better than 1 parti poodle is 2!

Sully is a dog who is learning more and more everyday how wonderful people can be! Sully is a little shy but with enough patience and time he will start coming around (also doesn’t hurt to have food). He’s really intelligent and does best when given something to actively do to keep him stimulated. Here at the rescue this has been giving him snuffle mats, lick mats, or interactive puzzles to play with. He also likes it when you take the time to sit with him and just relax. He responds really well to someone who can show him they are a calm, friendly, and fun person.

Sully is a very active dog that needs a lot of physical stimulation as well. He loves to run in the open fields of the rescue and play with his other doggy friends. Sully does well with other dogs but can be selective with other male dogs. His best friend in the world is his canine friend, Ellie, who helps guide him when he doesn’t know what to do (these two are a bonded pair and will only be adopted together).

How do I act when I first meet new people: A little shy, but warms up quickly

Tips and Tidbits: We celebrate Sully's birthday as 5/20/2019 

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.
