What Donner is looking for:
A calm home, as an only dog or companion to another calm dog.
Adopter well versed in positive training methods (he's a sensitive guy)
Someone willing to train him with treats (he's food motivated)
Donner is an 8+ year-old poodle mix who weighs only 8-pounds. This calm gentleman enjoys laps, sofas, cushy pillows, and other calm dogs (of any size). Donner is cool with the crate (in moderation), kids, men and cats. He’s still perfecting his house-training skills, but does use a potty pad consistently. He will need some leash training when the time is right, but he’s a little man and shouldn’t be dragging anyone down the street, and doesn’t demand tons of activity. He learns well from a model fur-sibling, but doesn’t require one. However, he does appreciate companionship. Mealtime is a BIG deal to this little guy. He’s quite the communicator when he’s hungry.
Also very affectionate, he likes to hang over your shoulder and nuzzle your neck until he falls asleep. He’s most at ease when he knows that he’s not alone. As long as he can see his person or another dog, he’s chill; even in the car. Donner is a very submissive boy, and most importantly, needs a gentle owner with a soft voice and kind hand. Generally low energy, he doesn’t mind grooming and will require such maintenance for his curly, non-shedding coat in order to stay comfortable and healthy. Can you provide this sweet boy the fur-ever home he deserves? He is sure to be a wonderful companion.
