Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Wheaten Terrier (medium coat)
Weight: 31 lbs
Height: 20 in
Estimated Birthdate: 3/30/2017
Fence Needed: Yes. Peggy is a flight risk until she warms up to her people. She will need a safe space to use the bathroom and to stretch her legs.
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Surrendered by breeder
Special Needs: Peggy is spayed, up to date on vaccines and heartworm negative. On 5/4/22 Peggy had a dental polishing and her ears professionally cleaned while under sedation.
What kind of home would be best for me: Peggy is a more reserved and shy girl. She will need an understanding home that is patient with her. Peggy has a lot of potential she just needs a family to call her own. She would prefer a home where her family is home more than they are away. Peggy requires another dog in the home to help her feel more comfortable and to learn the ropes. She is good with dogs of all sizes. Peggy does fine with cats.
What is my personality like: Peggy is a retired breeding dog. She has never lived as a pet or companion and has low socialization. Every experience for Peggy is new and it shows. She has a gentle demeanor, but needs to learn what it means to be a pet. Everything that you teach her will be new.
Peggy can be really sweet but it takes time for her to open up to a person. She is more reserved and likes to spend her time playing with other dogs instead of interacting with people. However she is still very curious about people. She often likes to watch from afar where she can see what the humans are doing and eventually works up the courage to come near to them. Once she is around someone and they have spent ample time with her so she can know they are safe Peggy starts becoming a different dog. All of a sudden you will start seeing more tail wags, more wiggly body movement, and overall joy from her when you enter the room. She will just take time getting there.
Peggy will walk on a leash but first she has to bond with her human. When she feels nervous she stand still won't want to move on the leash. After she spends time with her person and becomes more comfortable this is something that will greatly improve. Peggy is clean in her crate and like having the safe space to return to. Overall Peggy is looking for a home to call her own and a family that will love her unconditionally.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Peggy can be skittish when she meets new people. It will take Peggy time in the home to fully open up to her people.
Tips and Tidbits: Peggy is estimated at 5 years old. We celebrate her birthday as 3/30/2017.
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.
