Neville is a male Poodle/Maltese mix approximately 2 years old. He is a bigger boy weighing 18 pounds full grown. Neville has been professionally groomed and has a very soft, non-shedding coat. He is currently sporting a short summer haircut, but his fur will grow out long and wavy if allowed. He has pretty light apricot coloring on his ears and his body is a creamy white. Neville is a very quiet, sensitive, tender-hearted gentleman. He is hesitant around people he doesn't know and his big expressive brown eyes almost beg you to love him. We think he has definitely been mistreated in the past because of his shyness and cowering behavior around people. Neville is excellent with other dogs although he definitely prefers mellow, gentle canine companions. He doesn't like anything too rough or boisterous. He is a soft, sweet boy and is always looking for security and safety in his environment. Neville tugs at your heartstrings once he gets to know you because he will gently wag his tail in greeting and slowly creep up to you and sit in front of you with a somewhat worried look on his face. Once you start stroking his head and body, he's all yours. Interestingly enough, Neville walks great on leash and has a nice amount of energy for long walks or even short hikes. He is comfortable on a leash with a harness and will trot right out as happy as can be. Inside the home, he is very mellow and quiet preferring to hang out in a cozy doggie bed and observe the activity around him. Neville would do fine as an only dog with a gentle, patient owner, or he would also do quite well with an easygoing dog his age or older to show him the way. He would probably not be a candidate for young children since he gets frightened easily. Older kids and a quiet household would be fine. Neville was rescued from a very high-volume/high-kill shelter where he was brought in stray. He is very healthy and has his whole life ahead of him. We hope to find this sweet boy a nice secure home and a bright future. Neville is ready for his new forever home today!
