Russell is a well mannered older poodle. He is a chocolaty coloring which gives him an appearance of being younger than he is. We estimate him to be between 5 and 7 years of age. We are not sure why he ended up in an animal shelter. He was already neutered and he appears in good shape. He does not have any behaviors that indicate any ill treatment. He is a really nice dog. He does need a good teeth cleaning which is scheduled for the second week of November.
I have a bit of property and Russell stays close to me when he goes out to potty. At times I will think we wandered off but he will be waiting at the door. He does not really like to be outside that much. Given his small size, that is wise as there are things out there that will eat him!
Russell does great with the other dogs. He is a tad dominant and will growl sometimes at Hannah who is also dominant. Not the brightest move on his part since Hannah could eat him for lunch.
I’m not sure how well we would do with children, but I think he would be fine for the occasional child visit, but probably not the 24/7 of being around the smaller children. He loves to be in a lap and he adores a nice long cuddle. He sleeps at the end of our bed at night. He is a sound sleeper.
Russell would be great for someone looking for an easy pet as well as a good companion. He loves to go for rides in the car and he likes to visit people. Everyone likes him because of his outgoing fun personality. And he does this really cute thing with his front paws: standing on his back legs he paws as if begging with both paws. It is quite endearing.
Medical: He is neutered, micro chipped, wormed, and up to date on shots.
Microchip: Included in the adoption is the registration of the AVID micro chip in the new owner’s name.
Adoption fee: $250
Leash and Collar or Harness: a Lupine brand harness or collar and leash are provided for each
canine. Lupine has a life time guarantee; if chewed, the company will replace it free of charge.
