Newt is an adorable and healthy, 4 year old (possibly younger), 7 pound Maltese Poodle mix looking for his forever home! He does have allergies like most white dogs of this breed that he gets an injection for every 4 to 6 weeks and takes daily zyrtec. Stress and a new home may make the allergies flare up during the transition period so a new family should be prepared to see some red eyes or licking. This poor guy wasn't treated the best before coming to rescue so he takes a little time to trust new people and is head shy with strangers. If you give him a few days to settle in, he will be your lifelong loyal companion. He is just a joyful bouncing ball of fur that loves to play with toys and be with his human. Newt is house trained to use pee pads and go outside, walks well on a harness and leash, is great in a car, and truly a loving little guy. Due to his fearful nature to new things, Newt cannot go to a home with children, needs a fenced yard and would benefit from a family that has experience with scared dogs. Newt does respond to a new environment by being hyperactive and will regress with his housetraining until he settles in. He is good with other small dogs and loves running around with his furry foster siblings. He does take a little calming medication before vet visits and grooming, but with continued positive reinforcement he will eventually be acceptong of these scary experiences without meds. This little guy has blossomed over the last month in rescue and we know he will continue to be the best boy with his forever family!
