What kind of home would be best for me: Bobby is young, with very limited life experience outside of his foster house, so he needs exposure to EVERYTHING outside of the home because everything is new to him. Bobby wants to be with his people/person 100% of the time.
Bobby definitely wants a home where his family is home more than they are away (work from home/retired) and/or can be included in their adventures outside of the home.
Bobby's foster home includes big and small dogs. However, Bobby seems very happy to do his own thing. Bobby happily wrestles with the non-squeaky plush toys, tosses the rope toys around the room, and generally plays with himself if/when needed. His foster mom reports Bobby did not want to share the toys at first, but he is getting better/less jealous of the other dogs having toys. Please note: Squeaky toys will be shredded/destroyed in a matter of seconds by Bobby.
Bobby is up for a good game of tag/chase out in the yard with the big dogs and holds his own.
Bobby is a cuddle bug. He's a natural 35-pound lap dog who wants to be with his person/people: sleep in the bed on the pillow next to you, supervise taking a shower, nap on the couch together, and supervise cooking in the kitchen. Wherever you are, there Bobby will be as well.
What is my personality like: Bobby is happy, his tail is ALWAYS wagging. Bobby is a typical poodle, very smart and ready to learn anytime and everything you want to teach him. In less than a week, he has learned sit and down. And in two weeks, his counter surfing has decreased 90% of the time.
Bobby walks nicely on a leash (no pulling) and if wanted he could be trained to walk in heel position pretty easily, he hangs out there a lot of the time on his own. Bobby loves breakfast and dinner time, maybe a little too much so a slow feeder bowl has been very helpful for Bobby.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Bobby definitely has stranger danger and will give off his big ferocious bark, but if you are not scared off, he is easily won over with treats, then he is a big love bug. He calms down quickly and sits nicely for pets and scratches.
Tips and Tidbits: (11/8/2022 est.) Bobby has had no accidents in his foster home.
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.
