Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Poodle (Standard) / Australian Shepherd / Mixed (long coat)
Weight: 45 lbs
Height: 24 in
Estimated Birthdate: 1/20/2022
Fence Needed: Yes, Paul requires a physically fenced yard with fencing 6 feet or taller
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: owner release
Special Needs: Paul is up to date on vaccines and heartworm negative.
What kind of home would be best for me: Paul 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 are essential for his socialization and to have a playmate to romp around with every day.
What is my personality like: Paul was purchased as a puppy. Sadly his owner was in a bad car accident that left her unable to offer him the exercise and play that he needs on a regular basis. Without a physically fenced yard, she knew that Paul was missing the socialization and physical needs and surrendered him to rescue for help finding the right home.
Paul was raised in a home where he regularly walked to dog parks, went on hikes, and visited restaurants and other social gatherings with his human. He is happy and playful, but has had limited training on basic commands and boundaries. Like both of his breeds, Paul is intelligent and needs jobs to keep his mind and body stimulated.
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)
How do I act when I first meet new people: Paul can be shy upon meeting new people, or when entering into a new environment. However, he doesn't take long to warm up to his normal sweet loving self.
Tips and Tidbits: Paul gets very excited when he sees people he loves, and sometimes that excitement causes him to pee a little. Paul's birthday is 01/20/2022.
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.
