What kind of home would be best for me: Red is a high energy puppy looking for an active, playful owner ready to tire him out both mentally and physically. He would be a great family dog, or a loyal sidekick to a single owner. His top priority is to find someone who will take time to train him, and make it exciting! Other dogs in the home would be great for his socialization and to have a playmate to romp around with every day. Red would do well sharing his space with a cat, but would need to be socialized with it ASAP. He is a sweet, intelligent guy that will catch on to his training rather quickly.
What is my personality like: Red is a carefree, laid back fella. While he does have his bursts of puppy zoomies here and there, he mostly just likes to lounge around watching what everyone else is doing. He loves to nuzzle right up to his people when given the opportunity. His cuddles are some of the best, and he’ll have you convinced that’s how you need to spend all your days.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Red seems shy, but really he just thinks that everyone should come to him to give him affection. He’s handsome, and he knows it!
Tips and Tidbits: Red's estimated birthday is 5/21/2022.
Thank you for carefully considering the addition of a puppy to your family. Puppies can be a joyous experience, but they can also be a tremendous amount of work. Since our goal is to place each of our dogs in forever homes, we are especially cautious with puppies. We like to stress 3 major things when considering a puppy vs. an adult dog: 1) many adult dogs are well bred, well trained dogs who find themselves in rescue through no fault of their own, 2) adult dogs are eager to share their love and bond with their new family, and 3) puppies will always require far more time, energy, and training than an adult dog.
Our ideal puppy adopters are:
-experienced dog owners with a solid record of excellent vet care of their previous pets
-scheduled away from home for no more than 4 hours per day OR have another canine companion already in the home
-stay at home type of people (work at home, home schoolers, retired, etc)
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.
