My Story

Date into Rescue: 03/24/24

Reason for being in rescue: Four puppies were dropped off at our gate late at night in a plastic tote. The owners left a note apologizing and told us they could not take care of the puppies.

Special Needs: Gideon is up to date on vaccines for his age. He is neutered. Gideon is available for transport to New York!

What kind of home would be best for me: This highly energetic cute little guy hasn't had the best start to life as he and his siblings were left at our front gate in a tote bag. This little guy is used to being with his siblings and will need a canine friend, or if you have room, one of his siblings in his new home. Puppies love to run and play with one another, and this active cutie is no different. He will need a home with adopters that are ready to tire him out both mentally and physically.

Gideon would be perfect for a family with children old enough to understand he is a living breathing animal and not a stuffed animal. He would be a great pal for middle school aged kids and older. Gideon would also do well with a single owner that is home most, if not all, of the day who could keep him engaged in mental and physical activities throughout the day. What matters most to him is that his adopter is happy, excited, loving, and ready to take on training this energetic little guy! Remember, he is just a baby and needs to learn EVERYTHING. There will be accidents and chewing as he grows up. You must be patient with him and teach him everything, including all his commands, walking on a leash, to potty outside, everything. The adopter who is kind, patient and caring with him will be rewarded with a life-long companion that will give you unconditional love. What a wonderful reward that is!

What is my personality like: This little cute has not met a stranger and looks at everyone as a playmate. He hasn't been socialized yet so he will need to learn these skills to interact with both dogs and cats. When raised around cats, with proper boundaries, puppies do very well. If you expect you puppy to get along with your feline buddy, it's important to start socializing the puppy with the cat as soon as you can.

How do I act when I first meet new people: Gideon is a puppy, and he is overjoyed when meeting people and almost always in 100% play mode. He does love being loved on and enjoys pets and cuddles. And naps. He loves naps after he's tired himself out from playing.

PUPPY POLICY:

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 three 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 four hours per day and have another canine companion already in the home

-stay at home type of people (work at home, home schoolers, retired, etc.)

Tips and Tidbits: Gideon was dropped over our gate with no details. We have absolutely no history on him. Our vet estimates Gideon's birthdate to be on or about 10/25/23. Gideon is available for transport to New York!

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule if 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.

Potential Adopters

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.

Thank you for considering CPR!
