Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Border Collie / Mixed (medium coat)
Weight: 40 lbs
Height: 20 in
Estimated Birthdate: 6/22/2021
Fence Needed: No, Panda is very bonded to his people and is very good at sticking to their side. He often does his business on a leash and is well accustomed to it. He would be apartment appropriate. Panda would enjoy a fenced in yard to romp in but it is not required. Dog parks could be a good off leash place for Panda to play in if you do not have a fence.
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Panda was found as a stray in Gaffney, SC. Panda had been overlooked by many on a cold night in February. Our director Donna, happened to pass by him and simply could not turn this special boy down.
Special Needs: Panda came into rescue with an injured back leg, we quickly learned Panda needed to have femoral head ostectomy surgery. His back left leg was bum and holding him back, he was so happy through all of it. He never missed a beat after surgery, he quickly recovered and it was clear Panda was oh so thankful to finally be pain free. Panda is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative.
What kind of home would be best for me: Panda will thrive in a home with another dog, he loves to play and play. He does not breed discriminate, if a dog will play with him, it is game on! Panda is not best suited to live with small dogs (under 25 lbs) he is very friendly with other dogs but can quickly overwhelm something smaller than him. Because of this we do not suggest cats for Panda either. Panda is looking for a home where he is well loved and taken care of. He does not let his past get to him, he is just happy that not all humans are bad. Panda is ready for many adventures, whether it's short car rides daily, adventurous hikes, or trips to a local dog friendly ice cream shop.
What is my personality like: Panda is a silly, goofy boy. He loves to play with toys, he enjoys lick mats, kongs and frozen treats! Panda is a good mix of a playful puppy and a laid back couch potato. He is going to always want a balance of both in a home. Panda is crate trained, house trained, and mostly leashed trained. Panda can get excited and pull on a leash, this is a work in progress in his foster home. Unfortunately, somewhere along Panda's journey to get to the rescue, he learned that he has to defend his food from other dogs. Panda is starting to feel more secure with consistent food routine and is crated for feeding. He is gentle with taking food from humans, he is just not comfortable being around other dogs while eating. This will improve with time.
Panda must have some breed of herding dog in him, foster home often catches him trying to do herding like behavior with the other dogs (he is not very good at it) since he does this he often is very vocal!
How do I act when I first meet new people: Panda loves all people, they are the best thing to him.
Tips and Tidbits: Panda was found as a stray so we have absolutely no history on him. Based on his overall health and condition we estimate him at 1 year old. We celebrate ihs birthday as 6/22/2021.
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.
