Neutered Male White Miniature Poodle Mix 15 lbs. 10 yrs
Well, here I am looking for my forever home again. My first five years were a little chaotic and I wound up in a public animal shelter, from which I got adopted into my present home. Things were great there and my new mom just the best, but then she went from being home a lot to working and now to working long hours and traveling a lot. She knows that I’m a dog that needs people (which, as Barbra says, makes me one of the luckiest dogs in the world), so she’s looking for a new home for me through the poodle rescue people.
So let me tell you about myself. You will have noticed that I’m ten now. Since I’m a miniature poodle, I am still very young at heart and physically very active; we minis are like that. And at only 10 I have a lot of good years left in me! I’m very friendly and love people -- my family as well as new people that I meet. I’m not one of those dogs that barks at every little thing he hears, so I won’t drive you crazy by being yappy. I like to play with my ball and I’ve taught myself a few tricks with it that you might find amusing. I’m crate trained and I’m very good in my crate (actually I feel cozy in it for a couple of hours here and there when my family is gone somewhere). And maybe it’s not modest for me to say it, but I’m cute too.
It’s really important to me too have a new home where the people aren’t away very much, as being alone makes me anxious and upset. I’ve heard it called “separation anxiety,” but to me it just means that I need my people around! It doesn’t mean that you can’t go away for an hour or two and leave me in my crate, I’m fine with that. But if you want to be away longer I'll need some company. I’ll happily stay with a neighbor or friend or relative for awhile – as I said, I really do like everyone I meet.
I’m really so anxious to settle into my new, truly forever home, particularly now that the holidays are coming and all I can think about is families and how wonderful it would be to have one of my very own. The poodle rescue people can arrange for us to meet, so please be in touch with them. I’m waiting here for you.
