GUAPO is one handsome guy. He is a three year old, 22 pound cockapoo who had to be surrendered by his owners suddenly. He lived with another dog and with children and his friendliness and comfort with people and dogs is evident. He was only recently neutered. He will be a great dog for the right home. But that 'right home' is the big issue. Guano was never trained properly, and while he has some good manners - for example he can settle down when crated - he has never been taught not to jump up, or nip at shirts and hands, and he is like a fur ball on speed!
When a dog isn't given the right guidance when younger, these behaviors can be hard to modify, but with a committed owner who is willing to keep to a training regimen, this beautiful dog will turn out well!!
We will not adopt him to a home with small children as his mouthiness can cause problems and he is not good with cats.
But if you love this breed, and have the time and enthusiasm to help Guapo become his better self....please get in touch.
We do NOT (except in unusual circumstances) adopt beyond a 50 mile radius from the East Bay, so that we can adequately do a home check and follow up.
