Punkin‘s Story

❤️Punkin is Available❤️

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

Hi, I’m Punkin! I’m a 35lb, 7-month-old Female Standard Poodle. My coat is a gorgeous apricot color and while I don't shed, I do need to be brushed and groomed regularly.

I am a little shy at first, but once I warm up I am very snuggly and playful. My foster mom says I am an old soul and love long naps in the afternoon. I love a good squeaky toy and playing tug-of-war. When playing, I like to use my voice and can sometimes get too loud. A simple "hush" command helps me learn it’s not okay to bark. I am gentle and patient when I eat treats and I always want to sit for you. I love laying on the couch and being super lazy. I want to be close to my foster mom and let her know that I am there for her.

I usually wake up whenever my foster mom does (6:45-7am). I go out on a walk and do my business. Then I get to come inside and eat! I love eating and usually eat it all at one time! Then I play with toys and my foster brother. We love running around the couch and playing bitey face or with a plush toy. We go on another walk during lunch. Then, it’s nap time and relaxing all afternoon. When foster mom finishes work, we like going to the park when it’s cooler outside. I’m not quite sure how to play ball but I would love to learn! Then we go back inside and eat again! After, I usually relax on the couch before bedtime. I love my kennel and it is my safe place to sleep at night. I also need my sleep blanket and toy to sleep!

I am a top-notch counter surfer. I am learning that this is not okay and I need to sit and be patient. If I am kept on a schedule, I am the perfect house trained dog.
