Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Poodle (Standard) (long coat)
Weight: 42.50 lbs
Height: 24 in
Estimated Birthdate: 2/1/2018
Fence Needed: Yes
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Lovingly surrendered by owners
Special Needs: Hans is neutered, up to date on vaccines and heartworm negative. On 02/09/22 Hans had a dental polishing and a deep ear cleaning. Our vet noted that Hans has a scar on his lower eyelid from a laceration that did not heal properly. Correcting this would be cosmetic; we have elected not to do cosmetic surgery.
What kind of home would be best for me: We are seeking a home with an experienced dog owner and someone who is home more than they're away. Though Hans has always lived with other dogs, he can be picky about his doggie friends. Our best home for Hans is as the only dog. Hans needs continued socialization and positive reinforcement training, especially around introductions to new dogs and people. He is a great boy with so much potential.
What is my personality like: Hans and his brother Posh were the beloved companions of a single professional. Sadly, significant health challenges made caring for Hans impossible and he was surrendered to rescue to help him find the right forever home.
Hans loves to be the center of attention. Everywhere he goes he wants someone to give him attention. He loves being loved on and would do fantastic for someone who wants a buddy that would cuddle up with them. Hans is a very intelligent boy and can catch on to things fast and does well with adjusting to routine.
Hans is an outgoing boy that is looking for an experienced home. Hans likes other dogs but needs proper introductions the first few times he meets a dog. He will need to be corrected if he becomes too much and he will need to be on leash. He is picky about his friends and this has been something we’ve been working on with him here at the farm. Someone who can help this boy with socialization and basic training through positive reinforcement would be ideal.
Hans needs work walking on a leash as he pulls a little bit this can be easily managed with an easy walk harness. When meeting new people Hans takes a few minutes to warm up treats greatly help with this. Hans is crate trained and does great about keeping it clean it is required he have one in the home as a safe place to retreat to when he is feeling overwhelmed.
Hans is a very intelligent boy that would do great with any type training. We can see him doing therapy work as he is pretty attuned to his people.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Shy but friendly.
Tips and Tidbits: 2/1/2018 is his estimated birthday. We think he is about 4 years old.
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.
