Denali‘s Story

❤️Denali is Available❤️

Please READ the bio and adoption requirements first to make sure you are a perfect fit BEFORE APPLYING.

Hi, my name is Denali! I'm a 5-year-old male Standard Poodle weighing 70lbs. I don’t shed, but I loved to get brushed - good boy I know!

I’m basically a big shadow to my humans unless I’m playing outside with my fur foster siblings. I think I’m a lap dog and will sit there all day if permitted. If I want more attention I’ll put my paw on you to let you know especially if I want to snuggle. My favorite thing to do is play fetch with my foster family or play hard with my foster fur siblings. I am the alpha of my pack so my new sibling must be okay with that. I have a doggie door and use it to my advantage!

I wake up 6:00AM for breakfast, then see what meetings I need to attend with my foster family that day. I even have my own bed - so spoiled! Break times consist of outdoor play and walks, and before I know it, it’d dinner time. I go out before bed and sleep next to fur sibling wether it’s bedside of the humans or in a different room. If I sleep in my crate I always have the door open, I’m most comfy that way.

I’m still working on counter surfing and not taking my fur sibling food - so proper distance during feeding time is key. I’m potty trained and crate trained, but prefer an open area with my crate door open. I do pull on the leash, so I should be walked by adults only. If doors are open I need to be watched - I will wander or bolt out. I do have a very strong personality and do best with a fur sibling who’s docile. I do have separation anxiety and prefer to be around my humans all the time, and still working at not barking at others.

- Dog sibling required, he/she must be on the larger scale with playful energy and docile personality
- Large fenced yard that’s at least 8ft heigh, I can jump high
- Stay-at-home parent(s) due to separation anxiety
- Highly active family, I have a lot of energy and must be exercised daily

If you meet all of the requirements and live within 350 miles of Dallas/Fort Worth, TX, please apply at
