Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Poodle (Standard) (long coat)
Weight: 50 lbs
Height: 24 in
Estimated Birthdate: 4/23/2017
Fence Needed: Yes, Bruno requires a fenced yard with 4 foot or higher fencing
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Lovingly surrendered by owners
Special Needs: Bruno is neutered, up to date on vaccines and heartworm negative
What kind of home would be best for me: Bruno is looking for a home where he can have what he had before - be king of the castle and owner of your heart. While he is and can co-exist peacefully with other dogs, he prefers not to. He's got enough love for all of you, you don't need anybody else. He also is like an engineer - things need to have a flow that is consistent and known and can be counted on. 'Bruno says, "I love structure and routine. Let's go build a plan together and follow it."
What is my personality like: Bruno was the beloved companion of a single individual. Sadly, his owner passed way and family members were unable to care for him. He was surrendered to rescue to help him find the right forever home.
I am a forward and confident dog. I tend to be bossy with my space. I don't mind other dogs my size, preferably not smaller, around me that are submissive and compliant to my demands. I can live with cats that can live with me. I will play fetch for a minute but would rather lay in my bed chewing on a bone or toy. I know basic cues and walk nicely on a slip lead or head halter, but I sometimes like to talk big and loud to neighborhood dogs. If left unchecked, I can go into a tantrum and be loud and strong. Just tell me to keep walking and I will.
I like my people once I get to know you. I am respectful of your space and stay on the floor even when I am excited to see you. I'm fairly low to medium energy and do not require as much exercise but do enjoy car rides and going to new places. I am also crate trained. I eat and sleep in one and stay clean. I would enjoy us to spend as much time together, but I do understand you might have to leave me alone during the day. A fenced in yard would be preferred, I don't jump, but I do like to explore.
I am not overly affectionate. I don't lick and jump and climb all over my people. I like to be looked at and told how handsome I am. I am not food motivated no matter how good the treats smell and taste but I do like food when going into my create. Yes, I am crate and house trained, I know basic cues and have a fairly good recall.
How do I act when I first meet new people: I keep my distance, give a couple woofs and sniff to make sure your intentions are good. I'm cat like in this sense, I like to watch from a safe distance then give a hello. Once I've decided you're safe, I will proceed and introduce myself. I like head pats and good boys then I'll find a spot to relax and enjoy our company together.
Tips and Tidbits: 04/23/2017 is Bruno's birthdate.
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.
