Facts about ASHLEY
- Breed: Toy Poodle
- Color: White
- Age: Young
- Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
- Sex: Female
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Ashley is a tiny 9 lb toy poodle, 1-1/2 yrs old, spayed and up to date on shots, and housebroken, who was given up by someone who got her and realized they could not be home enough to let her out. They got Ashley from a shelter. Ashley put there by an animal control officer who took her out of her original home due to neglect, so she's had a rough time in her short life. She stays by the foster mom, enjoys sitting on her lap 24/7 and give kisses. She loves her belly rubbed, kissing and snuggling close no matter where you are. She is fine in the foster home with the other dogs and cats and plays nicely with the yorkies there. Ashley was obviously permitted to be the boss in her former home and came to us wanting to tell us what she wanted and didn't want. It took about a day of showing her she wasn't boss and she's fine. She's the perfect dog. We did a behavior assessment of her and she was fine. She let us do all the things you do to evaluate: look at teeth, take away items and handle in various ways. She passed with flying colors...the foster mom can do anything she wants to Ashely. Here's a quote from her: "Whoever gets Ashley is in for a real treat. She is sweet, affectionate, playful (with the Yorkies and alone), attached and well mannered little girl who wants to be loved. No matter what I do I can't get an aggressive response." She was very easy and readily accepted her lower position in the pack, so it's not a problem, but to be safe, she should got to a home without children or with children over age 10 who will also know how to be boss. She would LOVE to have other small dogs to play with and a fenced yard.. She cannot go to a home where she is left alone all day because that's why she was given up. So a non working or working from home situation. If you have an empty lap craving a little soft adorable baby, a little dog for her to play with, a fenced yard, and you are home, then this sweetheart is for you so read on to see how to adopt.....
WE ARE NOT A SHELTER YOU CAN VISIT
WE ARE A RESCUE, A NON-PROFIT VOLUNTEER NETWORK OF PRIVATE FOSTER HOMES in VARIOUS NJ and PA LOCATIONS. Our mailing address is for mail only and there are NO adoptable pets there. There is no shelter to visit. You need to follow our procedure explained below.
Because these dogs are in private homes, we need to make special arrangements for our APPROVED potential adopter to meet the dog he wants. To qualify for this, we need an application, a vet history we discuss with your vet, and a home inspection. PLEASE read everything below for our adoption requirements and procedures before you write to ask how to adopt! It is all explained below!
REQUIREMENTS TO ADOPT FROM SOS DOGS:
VET HISTORY: You must be an experienced dog owner with a vet history we can discuss with your vet. We do not adopt to first time pet owners. We look to see that your current or previous dog(s) was altered, kept up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative, and received all care when ill.
NO LARGE DOGS: Large dogs often see little dogs as prey or can inadvertently hurt the little ones, even if they don't mean to.
NO CHILDREN UNDER 5: Children can also inadvertently hurt a tiny dog
NO ELECTRIC FENCE: No invisible fence as we feel the shock collar is cruel and it doesn't prevent predators from coming in.
COME TO NJ: You must be able to come to southern or central NJ where most dogs are fostered.
ELIMINATION CONSIDERATIONS: NO small dog can hold it's urine for 8-9 hours while someone is at work all day, and we can't place a dog with that expectation. Small dogs can go to working homes if you are willing to train the dog to use newspaper or pads.
Remember, we are DOG ADVOCATES and we are here ONLY to find the best home FOR THE DOG!
