Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Poodle (Toy) (long coat)
Weight: 7.4 lbs
Height: 9 in
Estimated Birthdate: 8/20/2011
Fence Needed: Preferred - Annie has no experience on a leash and we consider her a flight risk.
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: breeder release to a NC shelter, abandoned after years of making babies
Special Needs: Annie had several masses that were removed during her spay. Fortunately, the results from the histopath showed they were benign. She also had a hernia repaired and she ended up losing all teeth in a massive dental. Her teeth had been ignored her entire life. She's healthy now - a little "shop worn" from being a breeding machine but we've fixed all we could find.
What kind of home would be best for me: Annie is a retired breeder dog and as such, she needs a home that understands her and has patience with her. She has never been a pet - she has only been a machine to make babies. She has learned so far that those days are over, there are no more babies, that food comes every day, that her teeth no longer hurt, that crates are her safe space and she does not have to poop or pee in the area she lives in. She is curious about us but not yet warmed up to any human. Annie has not been tested with cats but as timid as she is, we doubt there would be an issue. However, if you have cats and are interested in Annie, we will test her before a meet and greet.
What is my personality like: Annie's main caregiver describer her as very shy yet curious, too about us humans. She loves her food and that makes it easy to win enough trust to handle her. Her crate is her safe place and she can often be found with several other dogs piled together. She co-exists easily with other dogs with no issues and likes other small dogs. She does not have any experience with large dogs. She enjoys sunbathing on the patio and we let her do that as much as she wants.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Very cautious.
Tips and Tidbits: The breeder who sent Annie to the shelter told them she was 11 years old. We've estimated her birthdate as 8/20/2011.
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.
