What kind of home would be best for me: Phoebe is looking for a calm, laid back home that will give her plenty of affection, but also respects her boundaries. She also needs a furry companion to keep her company, and to cuddle with, when the humans are not around. However, her furry companion must be on the smaller side. Phoebe does not do well with large dogs, so her new friend(s) must be on the smaller side.
What is my personality like: Phoebe can be a diva, and will get vocal when she doesn't get her way. When she is tired, or simply not in the mood to deal with anyone, leave her be until she comes up to you. If you force her to do anything, she may get a little nippy. Underneath that diva personality though is a sweet, cuddle-bug that wants to give all her love to her person. She not only loves to cuddle up with her humans, but she loves cuddling with her dog pals. She is a foodie through and through, so be prepared for the big puppy dog eyes when she sees or smells food. She knows she's cute, and knows how to work her humans with all that cuteness!
How do I act when I first meet new people: Phoebe is nervous around new people and environments. Give her some space, and let her come to you on her own terms. Because of this and her behavior when she is in a crate and does not want to come out (see below) we will only place Phoebe in an adult only home.
Tips and Tidbits: Phoebe is crate trained. She will sometimes use her crate as a place to unwind when she's tired, so leaving the door open for her during the day is a must. Phoebe may nip if you try to take her out of the crate. Let her come to you. That is her space, not yours. She needs to feel that there is a place she can go where she can be safe and not rushed or pushed.
We were not given actual information so have estimated Phoebe's birthdate as 7/26/19.
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.
