Name: Ginny Sex: Female Spayed/Neutered: Yes Breed: Poodle (Miniature) Weight: 12 lb Height: 12 in Estimated Birthdate: 3/18/2011 Fence Needed: preferred but will consider on a case by case basis Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Adoption Fee:$249 Date into Rescue: 03/17/2019 Reason for being in rescue: owner release/wife died and husband can not care for the poodles Special Needs: Cataracts, has had a major dental done and regular dentals are critical for the future What kind of home would be best for me: She would do well with other dogs or by herself, and she would be able to make do with just a few short walks. Gaining her trust is slow going, but once I got her in my truck, I was able to start the process. At first, all she would do is sit there and shake, wishing she were somewhere else. After a few treats, and a little rest, she began to tolerate me. By the time I had completed her info gathering, which took a little longer than normal, she was sitting next to me. She really is a sweet girl, she just needs someone who will be patient with her and love on her at her pace. What is my personality like: She's good with other dogs, but doesn't seem to have a best friend. She's relaxed in her crate, and doesn't seem to care who walks by it. She has escaped from her area before, but she doesn't dart out the gate. How do I act when I first meet new people: Ginny is a very timid soul, not social with strangers, uncomfortable and cautious with everyone. She made me chase her all around the yard, and I finally had to wait until she went into her crate to come back for her. You will need to go slow and earn her trust. Once you do, I think she will be loving. She is scared and her whole world got turned upside down. Tips and Tidbits: Ginny's estimated birthdate is 03/18/2011 per the previous owner but we are not sure if that is correct. She could be a bit older or a bit younger. There was no information provided at all when we picked her up. Life the last few years has been tough and it's hard to tell an age. She is for sure an old soul. She eats at a comfortable pace, and is very cautious with treats. She didn't seem to show a particular preference when I had her for any treats, but she wouldn't take it from my hand. She loved the white cheddar cheese it crackers I had, but when she accidentally got excited enough to grab it before I put it down, she refused to even look at me when I was setting them down after that. She always runs to avoid being picked up or loved on, and she doesn't guard toys. 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.
