Barry came to us a while ago and we have been evaluating him trying to understand the reason (s) he was given up.  In the beginning there was lots of low growling. So we ignored him and made no eye contact. It takes time to get acclimated to new environments. At only a year and a half, and with the dreaded Covid and lack of socializing, we know that is part of his original issue. We haven't seen resource guarding but because we know this could have been an issue in his original home, we just don't let it happen. So far he's been a very active and happy guy and does well with the Poodles here.  Could he have been with a family who didn't understand the Poodle brain? We won't know.We will be looking for a family or perhaps a man who understands a very smart dog. We love him here. He's on a much needed weight loss program, he came in at 49 pounds. His small frame needs to be 40 pounds. That's a lot of weight to lose but we are doing it slowly and he doesn't mind. Lots of exercise helps so we are really looking for a yard with a physical (not electric) fence.    He can stay here as long as necessary, his stocking is up but if he gets to go home before Christmas it will go with him.

What? He's not a Poodle?
Yes, we know but we were asked to help him so he's here now. We know his birthday is 2/20/17 and we know he is a very nice Chihuahua mix. We know he's not neutered and that is something that we will address soon. We know he sheds and we know his Mom was allergic to him.
We know he weighs 15.9 pounds! A great size!
He's here, he's nice, please apply!

  Sophie is a 14 year old Shih Tzu that was abandoned when her Mom passed. We were called to help her and that's what we are doing. Her blood work looks good to have a much needed dental and leg mass removal. We are waiting for an ultrasound to be done to determine that all systems are go for surgery. Please keep Sophie in your thoughts and prayers as she continues to stay at Mount Carmel Animal Hospital under the loving care of Dr. Stewart.
