Adopt Skippy a White Poodle (Miniature) / Cairn Terrier / Mixed dog in Santa
Santa Ana, CA
Skippy is 2yrs old and weighs around 14 lbs. Skippy is a beautiful and endearing dog. However, she will NOT be placed in a home with kids, grandchildren, kids who visit, or grandchildren who visit. Ideally, she will be placed in a home that does not have frequent new visitors or expect her to interact with strangers and are willing to confine her until their company has left. Once she's comfortable with her new family, she'll be fine, but this will require patience and discipline. The key word is PATIENCE in allowing her to get to know and trust you at her speed and the DISCIPLINE required to not smother her with affection until the 2 of you have become well acquainted. She requires ---an experienced handler--- as she has a high anxiety level and can be territorial. Move too quickly and she will nip. She is very happy to be at home with her people and enjoys long walks. She would love a large yard to get her energy out running and playing. She has a HIGH ENERGY LEVEL. She would do well with agility training or another high energy activity. She would be happiest as an only dog ---- in a home with at least 1 person who is retired or works from home, someone would have lots of time to devote to further training.
