What kind of home would be best for me: Snoop is a lot of dog and as a lot of dog he needs a lot of stimulation and interaction. Here at the poodle farm, he has gotten along well with other dogs especially if their energy and zest for life is a match for his own. When he plays, he romps and he plays hard and his BFF must be able to keep up. Please note when he does meet a new dog, it's lot of bluster for a few minutes but it takes no time at all for him to make friends once the initial "who are you!" is taken care of. If he is to be an only dog, it needs to be with someone who can give him a lot of stimulation, a lot of play and a lot of activity. He needs it. We're looking for experienced, seasoned doodle owners who know that this breed can be a bit quirky and needs a firm but loving hand to bring out the best in them.
Snoops does NOT need to spend hours per day in a crate. He is large and active with an inquisitive mind and he needs stimulation and activity, both mentally and physically. A tired dog is a well behaved dog and Snoopy epitomizes that. He would love to be your running buddy. You could kick off 3 miles as a warm up, then take off for rally obedience or trick training classes at the local dog training center. Snoop loves to learn.
What is my personality like: Snoop was purchased as a puppy by a woman with a lot of love. to give but not enough experience for a dog this large and this active. As he grew, she grew increasingly concerned that she could not handle him. After several incidents, including ones where Snoopy got out of hand and tried to grab the sleeve of a neighbor walking by (mostly from boredom and lack of exercise) she realized that as much as she loved him, he needed more than she was prepared to give and she began seeking options for his new life.
Larger than life and bigger than all out doors - Snoop is a big, big guy with a big, big heart but if he feels like your going to go all soft on him, he will take advantage of that. He needs an experienced owner with the desire to bring out the best in a dog and the skills to do so or the ability to find the trainer and do the work to bring him too amazing.
Snoop has the potential to be an amazing companion but he also has the potential, in the wrong hands, to be a real problem child. He’s wicked smart and that takes some managing. We’re going to be very particular about where he goes.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Snoopy is almost 2 years old. We celebrate his birthday as 8/18/2020.
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.
