Date of Birth-12-31-11-Teddy is a 70 lb. brown St. Poodle. I am just starting my search for a home for Teddy. He is an alpha male, has a high prey drive, is small dog/cat aggressive, but he has done well with a big dog. He can be very aloof as he gets to know you. He is strong, so he needs a strong yet gentle male presence. He has a protective mode, so would do well with one owner, who understands the above personality. He will not do well alone for 8 hours, he needs his person. He was left alone for 12 hours in his former home, not destructive, but wanted to run and play and he had trouble sleeping at night after sleeping all day. He has been in a home with a young child and did fine but was severely neglected. He was not take for walks and he wasn't groomed for almost two years. I am looking a home that will give him a lot of attention, walks, teaching him things. He is smart, sits on command and loves treats and he shakes. Having said that, he needs an experienced handler/owner. It would be nice if the new home knows and understands St. Poodles. He has a softer gentler side once you get to know him. He is recovering from entropion surgery and will then be ready to go to his new home. He does good with other big dogs once he gets to know them.
Teddy's eye surgery is healing nicely, he got to take the e-collar off and is much happier. He still has a little swelling in his left eye. It takes him a few weeks to get comfortable in his new home here, so he needs a confident yet gentle adopter, preferably a single man or woman, who knows the breed and just wants a companion and is willing to take things slow and easy.
Adoption fee is $350.00.
NO SHIPPING! NO TRANSPORTING. His new family must travel to my home to meet Teddy .
