Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Domestic Short Hair (medium coat)
Weight: 10 lb
Height: 9 in
Estimated Birthdate: 10/11/2020
Fence Needed: No
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: transfer from a partner cat rescue, originally found as a stray living in an apartment complex parking lot - best guess is he was someone's kitten and someone moved and left him behind
Special Needs: Reggie has feline aids (FIV). This used to be a death sentence for cats but no longer. Under special tips and tidbits, please see two articles to help you decide if Reggie is the guy for you. Cats with FIV do NOT require any medication. He must be a strictly indoor only cat.
What kind of home would be best for me: Reggie's home will be one who knows that this cat loves being the center of attention. Reggie is living in our director's office at the poodle farm and while there are comfy couches and chairs and beds all over, his prime spot during the day is curled on the middle of her desk, able to oversee the action. He also loves looking out the window.
Reggie would do well in a home with dogs who either like cats or are blase about cats - he completely ignores our dogs who he knows and they do the same for him. When a new dog enters the room, he has a great sense of when to take off for safe spaces and when to stand his ground cause the dog really does not mean it and is actually going to be a friend. Reggie does like his head scratches though - he is looking for a home that thinks petting a cat is the most fun thing to do at least several times per day. He loves to have his head scratched. He is affectionate without being frantic about it.
What is my personality like: Reggie is the Brad Pitt of the cat world! He's beautiful. He's strong. He's sexy. He's got it ALL and he knows it. But..he's not got the big head about all of these good looks and intelligence he was graced with. He is calm, centered and confident in his own skin.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Like a cat - friendly enough but not just frantic about it. He can take affection or leave it. But..don't leave his food bowl empty. This boy loves to eat.
Tips and Tidbits: Reggie's estimated birthdate is 10/11/2020. This is one cool cat. He's going to make someone a very good companion. Reggie is great, neat and on target with his litter box training.

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.
