Name: Elvis Sex: Male Spayed/Neutered: Yes Breed: Cavalier King Charles Spaniel / Mixed (medium coat) Weight: 17 lbs Height: in Estimated Birthdate: 2/26/2016 Fence Needed: No Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Adoption Fee:$349 Date into Rescue: 02/26/2019 Reason for being in rescue: Elvis was surrendered by his owners to an animal shelter. CPR pulled him from the local shelter. Special Needs: What kind of home would be best for me: Elvis needs a very experienced owner that understands animals that have been neglected or abused. He has so much potential and has come so far, but will always require work. Elvis needs a quiet home with very few visitors. He absolutely cannot be around children. What is my personality like: Elvis came to us from a hoarding case. He was less than socialized when he came to us, but he has gotten much better since his arrival. He has the cutest underbite, as do a few dog that came from this case. He is crate aggressive. He is not a dog that you pick up; rather he is a let me come to you kind of boy.. Otherwise, he is the sweetest thing. He is very vocal, meaning he growls while you pet and love on him, even when his back leg kicks. He will reach up on your leg with his paws when he wants your attention, and will try to chase away any other dogs that may want to share your affection. Elvis could be with other dogs in his new home, but would do just as well, if not a bit better as an only dog. No children. He does like his treats, and will take them fairly gently. He wants to be loved on, but wants it on his terms. He will sometimes go for a toy, but more often than not, he just does his own thing and patrols the yard. Despite his rough edges and snarky attitude, he is a sweet and loving dog. For the right family, he would bring many years of joy and love. How do I act when I first meet new people: Elvis is a dog that will choose his family. Everything is on his terms, including interacting with people. He is not a dog that you reach down to pet. Tips and Tidbits: Elvis's transformation in the short period he has been with Carolina Poodle Rescue are testament to the resilience of the canine spirit. He has so much potential for the family willing to work with him! House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
