Size: 8 lb toy | Age: 2 years old | Sex: Male
Pedro is a 2 year old, 8 pound toy poodle who was brought to the shelter by his family because they were traveling too much. Pedro was stressed and anxious at the shelter, so PRNE was contacted to see if we could take him. He is now in a foster home and settling in very nicely.
Pedro is hand-shy at first, but once he knows you won’t hurt him, he is a loving and playful pup. He loves to be held and carried once he feels comfortable with you. He will happily warm your lap while you watch television and enjoys going for car rides. Pedro was an only dog in his previous home, but he gets along well with the other small dogs in his foster home, so he would be fine with or without other small dogs in the household. He has never lived with a cat, although was good with a ferret at the groomer’s house, so he most likely would be okay with cats if introduced properly. Pedro lived with older kids in his previous home and loved to play with them. Homes with teens will be considered if they have experience with dogs and will give Pedro the time he needs to feel safe and secure. Pedro is anxious with new people, so he needs understanding and patient owners who will not push themselves on him until he is ready. A home with a fenced in yard would be ideal because Pedro gets nervous when a collar and leash are put on him. He will need someone who will help him get used to being walked on a leash. He was pee pad trained in his previous home and will also go outside when taken out regularly. He knows basic commands, such as sit, stay, wait, and lay down. He is very affectionate and loves to give kisses. Pedro is a healthy and happy boy who is up-to-date on all his vet care. He is neutered and microchipped. He is looking for a new home with someone who is able to spend a lot of time with him to help him feel safe and build his confidence. He is a quirky little guy who will thrive in the right home.
