This awesome guy we call 'Dak' is a Sheepadoodle, Sheepdog/Standard Poodle mix. He is a handsome guy that came to us very, very matted. He was so matted that we could not get our fingers through his hair to touch his skin. He had to be shaved to get all the smelly mats off. Once he was shaved he became playful and energetic! This guy is about 60 pounds and doesn't realize his size, he thinks he is a lapdog and that all the smaller dogs want to play with him - but he gets kind of rough some times.
We do not think he had much socialization before being rescued because he is unsure about a lot of things but learns quickly! Loves to curl up on the sofa and likes to follow people around. He has learned to go in a crate for short periods to rest before and after mealtime. He will need an enclosed backyard with at least six foot tall sturdy fence. He does great with other dogs but does play rough and doesn't understand when he is getting too rough. He would not be good with cats.
Dak has been neutered, received vaccines, heartworm tested (negative), micro-chipped, and groomed. He is ready for an approved home of his own.
WE ARE IN ABILENE, TEXAS. WE DO NOT SHIP OR TRANSPORT OUR PETS, WE REQUIRE ADOPTERS MEET THE DOG TO MAKE SURE IT IS A GOOD FIT.
NOTE: We are a rescue, the dogs are in foster homes. WE DO NOT HAVE A FACILITY THAT OPENS TO THE PUBLIC. We require an application BEFORE a potential adopter will be introduced to one of our pets. We contact vets to ensure that pets already in the adoptive home are current on vaccines, heartworm prevention and sterilized. We have gotten to know the pet and our goal is to make the best match, between pet and people. PLEASE be aware, we do not adopt out to a home that has an animal which has not been spayed or neutered.
Please email us at email@example.com to receive an Adoption Application or for more information on our Adoption process. Please take the time to visit our website www.pawedsquad.com for additional information.
We represent the pet to the best of our ability, they are rescue dogs and we don't always get their history.
