Breed Poodle Mix
Adoption Fee $205+tax
This 8-year-old, 8lb, poodle mix is named Clark because he was wearing a Superman costume in his profile pic when AJL first saw him, which is fitting to who he is a Super Dog. He’s had a rough life before AJL but he is a fighter and is as happy as a dog can be. He bounces up and down the stairs like a puppy, loves to go on short walks and enjoys car rides (he’ll even beat you to the driver seat). He is good with all the people that he meets. He needs to go potty every 4 hours so easy access to a backyard is important. He knows how to go potty on a pee pad if needed but he is fine holding it through the night. Clark has some medical conditions - he has a stage 5 heart murmur and the vet had to extract a good bit of his teeth due to plaque buildup so he only eats wet food. Regardless, he would flash his big smile like he doesn’t care at all. The vet recommends taking him back for a re-evaluation of his teeth next April and a re-check of his heart in November 2021. He would fit well in a family with a peaceful home and someone who can stay with him most of the day. He would not do well in an apartment or condo as he has a bit of separation anxiety and may cry when you leave. He would be great as an only dog and no cats. He does not like being in a crate and would much rather sleep next to you on the bed. He is ready for his forever home where he can give his unconditional love and find a family that can love him back. Pup, pup and away, Clark!
