Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Poodle (Miniature) / Terrier / Mixed (medium coat)
Weight: 33 lbs
Height: 18 in
Estimated Birthdate: 10/14/2018
Fence Needed: Yes, 4ft fence or higher is required.
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: owner release
Special Needs: Chance is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. Chance arrived in rescue with very itchy skin and ears. He is currently on trial medication for his ears (Claro) and skin (Apoquel). We are not sure if his allergies are seasonal or perennial and will be evaluating how he responds to medication.
What kind of home would be best for me: Chance is looking for a home where he can be the center of attention. He wants to be right in the middle of the action with his people. His high energy and playful spirit is the perfect combination for a great family dog with older, more mature children. Chance can be dog selective, so he will need to be the only dog in his new home. Chance loves to romp and play, so a fenced in yard is a must for this fun-loving guy.
What is my personality like:
Chance was originally adopted from a shelter, but was returned just one week later. He was adopted a second time, but they decided to take him to a random parking lot and sell him to a stranger. Unfortunately, the person who purchased him in the parking lot recently had a financial hardship and had to make the tough decision to surrender him. Chance was placed in what we thought would be his forever home, but the suburban neighborhood life was not for him. He would prefer to live where his neighbors, and their dogs, are a fair distance away and not walking by his fence. Chance
hasn’t had the easiest life, but that isn’t stopping him from finding his fur-ever family to shower with love.
Chance is a joyful, affectionate, and sometimes quirky boy. He loves his people with all his heart. He doesn’t care what you do, as long as it is together. He gets very excited when he sees his favorite people, and can’t help but to jump up to give you all the hugs and kisses. He prides himself on being able to fit on any size lap, despite his build, and melting even the coldest of hearts. Snuggle time is his favorite time, so go ahead and block out a nice chunk of your day to accommodate…you won’t regret it.
Chance will explore anything and anywhere he can get his nose into. Sometimes this leads to some mischievous counter surfing, he loves food! He isn’t picky about his regular food, or human food that he manages to get his paws on, but he is a bit of a treat snob. He prefers the more natural ingredients and soft textured treats over the typical dog biscuits. He enjoys playing fetch with his people, and loves any toy that makes a crinkly noise. He really enjoys stuffed animals too, but only because having a massacre and throwing the stuffing everywhere is so much fun. Chance is a fan of geese watching, so bonus points for anyone who can take him for walks in a park with lots of geese!
Chance sometimes will resource guard his food around other animals, but not around people. He is crate trained and walks well on a leash. He has been reported as well behaved by the groomer, and doesn’t mind having his ears cleaned like most pups.
Chance knows a few basic commands, but doesn’t always listen. He would greatly benefit from taking obedience classes, he has not had much structure in his short life.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Chance knows how to turn on the charm, and will have everyone wrapped around his paw within seconds.
Tips and Tidbits: Chance is estimated to be around 4 years old. We celebrate his birthday 10/14/2018.
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.
