NEEDS A RESIDENT CALM BUT PLAYFUL DOG OR DOGS
NOT CAT TESTED
OLDER DOG SAVVY CHILDREN
LOVING AND PATIENT OWNERS WHO WILL HELP HIM BECOME THE DOG HE WAS ALWAYS MEANT TO BE
Kris is a 5 year old ex breeding male Poodle who’s had a terrible start in life but is now beginning to be the most amazing little boy he should have always been. He’s loving his new life and all the kindness and love that comes with it. He has a little way to go but will make the right person a loving, loyal and fun companion. He is great with other dogs and is getting more confident around people. Kris is a handsome boy with a very kind nature.
Vet history will be discussed with potential adopters
Kris has improved massively around people but still has a way to go before he will be completely comfortable around strangers. Once he has built a trust with his people, he will repay you with the most loving kisses and close company you could ever wish for. He will follow you wherever you go, giving a gentle nudge behind your legs to let you know he’s there and make sure you don’t forget about him. He will sit next to you on the sofa and slowly but surely nuzzle his way closer until he is tucked up safely. He discovered “sloppy kisses” a few weeks ago and now takes every opportunity to improve his skill and technique!
Kris remains nervous around younger children and will take himself away to his safe place. He dislikes the noise and uncertainty that they can bring. He is wonderful with older, dog savvy children who will allow him to take it at his own pace to build up his trust and approach them.
Kris has not been cat or small furry animal tested.
At home Kris is happy and content to spend the day close to his person. Kris enjoys his food and yours if you don’t keep a very close eye on him taking every opportunity to “help himself” to your plate if you leave it unattended. Although this is amusing it could be very dangerous depending on the foods he’s taking. Kris is working on his basic training and responds really well to simple basic commands. Training must be gentle and rewarding so as not to knock his confidence. Training will need to continue in his forever home but a pace where he is happy.
Toilet training is still a work in progress and he is doing really well. Training will need to be ongoing and expect some setbacks while he adjusts to his new surroundings.
Kris sleeps with is foster mum in a bed or on her bed wherever he is happiest.
Throughout the day Kris will be wherever his people are. If you’re on the sofa he will be too, if you’re in the kitchen he will lay and watch your every move. Don’t expect any privacy when you’re in the bathroom either. He will be your shadow. He can be left for short periods if he has the company of other dogs.
Kris enjoys his food and will eat alongside his foster brothers at mealtimes. He is developing his sense of fun and will collect random items around the home and take them to a chosen place, now known as base camp and will chew them so observations are key!
Kris hasn’t been out and about much due to his vaccination status but is now able to commence his lead training. He is nervous of being outside on a lead but has started to relax a little and has started to investigate following the lead of his foster brothers.
In a safe and secure environment Kris enjoyed an off-lead adventure and his pure delight and happiness at his new life was clear to see in his playful bounding.
Kris needs a home where he can continue his journey at his own pace. He will need the most patient and loving people around him to reassure him and show him that he is safe and that he will not be hurt anymore. He may be slow to adjust to his new home but once he has, the rewards will be endless. He needs gentle, loving pawrents who are willing to help him be the beautiful little boy he is meant to be. His new Pawrents will need to be at home most of the day. He needs a home with older, dog savvy children who will allow Kris to develop his bond and trust and understand his fears and anxiety. A home with one or more calm, friendly small/medium sized dog/s that Kris can learn from and follow their lead. Given all these things, Kris will provide you with hours of entertainment and so much love in return.
