RODRIGO

RODRIGO

| M | 2 Y | Poodle mix | High energy | Partially blind | Attention hog | VERY affectionate | Needs training | Can be nervous | Ok with dogs | Not cat or kid tested

This is RODRIGO and he is SO FLUFFY. He is a tiny little ball of energy and wants to go non-stop. He’s definitely not the type to post up on the couch all day binge-watching TV shows and would prefer to be playing with his rope toy, exploring new places and sniffing all the things. Minimum activity for him during the day includes a long walk, two shorter walks and playtime. If you’re more active he’s always down for more! RODRIGO does tend to act out if he’s not properly exercised and will whine, chew and get into things he shouldn’t. He is also VERY demanding of attention and can never get enough love, pets or snuggles. This is something that potential adopters with other pets in the home will need to be aware of – he definitely gets jealous and wants to be the star of the show. It will likely take time to work out a dynamic in the home where all animals feel like they’re getting the attention they deserve. Spread the love, yo! RODRIGO prefers to not spend too much time alone and a less than ideal home for him is one without much activity or human interaction where he is crated most of the time. He is ok being crated while his people are out and at night but he can be vocal about it. Some days he randomly barks a lot so we think he would do best in a home instead of an apartment or condo. A backyard that he can run around in can also help him get rid of some of that energy. He is very smart but will need help with most training including mouthing. He is extremely affectionate with people and is a very happy go lucky guy. He can be nervous of loud noises or certain people, especially at night, which may be due to his vision. He can be especially apprehensive of men so proper introductions are key. He hasn’t been tested with cats or kids. If you’d like to meet RODRIGO fill out an application to adopt now!
