Hi, I’m Cliff! I’m an adorable 4-year-old, 16lb male poodle mix! I may be small but I’m BIG on cuddles and kisses! I also shed very little.
I am very low energy and love to cuddle with hoomans, especially when they give me belly rubs which are my absolute favorite. I also love bully sticks. The bigger the better! I rarely bark at people and dogs when I see them, but I always want to say hi. I love going on walks and sniffing everything! I get along with dogs but am a bit mouthy when playing.
My day starts at 6AM with a walk. When I come back, I sleep until my hoomans start their work day. Then, I eat breakfast, play, and nap. If my hoomans need to leave during the day, I wait inside my crate. In the evening, I go on my second walk before eating dinner. Afterwards, I sit by my hoomans, before dozing off. I go on my night walk around 9PM before going to sleep either on my bed in my hoomans’ bedroom or in my crate in the living room.
I’m crate and potty trained and am used to going out at least 3 times a day. I have a marking habit when I go somewhere new, so a belly band is handy. I'm not food aggressive, but I'm not a fan of being nudged or pushed if I'm doing something I'm not supposed to be doing. So be gentle with me as I get to know you. I can be a little demanding and climb on people when I want attention, but it's because I love to be loved on! I’m still working on my leash skills and my basic commands, and do get distracted easily. I’m very motivated by treats, and with some patience I can be the rockstar pup you’ve always wanted!
Here’s what I’m looking for:
- No children under age 8
- A patient family to continue my training and work on my "marking" habit (I only do this at new places)
- A family willing to give me LOTS of attention!
If you meet all of the requirements and live within 350 miles of Dallas/Fort Worth, TX, please apply at www.doodlerockrescue.org
