Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Bichon Frise (medium coat)
Weight: 11 lb
Height: 10 in
Estimated Birthdate: 3/11/2019
Fence Needed: It is preferred - Hailey is a flight risk .
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: breeder release
Special Needs: Hailey had a dental, was spayed and is up to date on routine vaccinations and microchipped. Her eyes were a little goopy from not having her hair trimmed regularly. Now that she has good grooming, they look much better.
What kind of home would be best for me: Hailey is looking for a bichon lover who has experience bringing shy girls out of their shell. She has very little experience with our normal world. She was raised in a small Amish kennel - no phones, no tv's, no cars - just livestock and other dogs. She has a lot of potential to the person who has patience and kindness to offer her in large amounts.
What is my personality like? Hailey in bullet points : shy, good with dogs, loves food, very curious and wants to come to you but isn't ready yet, good in a crate - goes into one on her own, we do not put her in one, needs one on one attention from a loving human who she can give her whole heart to.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Hailey is a flight risk - she will run from you. We use a towel to pick her up. It calms her to have a towel over her and something soft between her and human hands. In her home, she will need to wear a harness and leash for at least the first 30 days (and maybe longer) so you have a way to control her movements and keep her safe. It's called tethering .
Tips and Tidbits: Hailey's birthdate is 3/11/2019. This is an excellent article on rehab for a dog likd Hailey. Reading it will give you insights into what life will be like with her. https://resources.bestfriends.org/article/puppy-mill-rescue-dogs-transition-home-life
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.
