Anybody itching for a dog that won't make you itch, sneeze or wheeze? Our little Isaac might offer you just such an option! He's our newest little cuddle bug who appears to be a poodle mix - possibly with Lhasa Apso. Isaac is 6 years old and a convenient size at 15 pounds. Isaac came to animal control with his pads bleeding - probably from being out in the cold too long and perhaps having absorbed some salt that irritated his paws. We're happy to report they're all healed up now and he’s prancing around just fine.
Isaac is great on a leash and walks at a nice pace. He notices other people and dogs but isn’t overly interested. He doesn’t pull or strain, and he stays on the sidewalk (though given the fact that at the time of this writing the snowdrifts are over his head, so perhaps this wouldn't be unusual). His foster mom noticed he isn't interested in squirrels (can you imagine?!) so she thought "not much of a prey drive" and introduced him to their pet rabbit, and now they enjoy hanging out with to each other.
Another clue to his demeanor/background, per his foster mom: “I just took him to visit a friend, and he was a perfect houseguest. He was friendly to her, he stayed near me most of the time after exploring the next room, and sat on the towel I brought for him. Other than for jumping up a few times to be petted, he’s really well-behaved.” Another little something we've noticed about him is that he likes females, both young and old, and is initially somewhat afraid of men (less so boys), but he'll soon trust him the man if he spends a few minutes winning him over.
Isaac enjoys being near his people but isn't overly clingy. In addition, Isaac is potty-trained and not much of a barker. He's just a great little fellow!
Isaac's adoption fee of $280 includes: vet exam, heartworm test, distemper combo vaccination, bordetella and rabies vaccinations, dental cleaning, fecal test, deworming, flea control, microchip and neuter.
