Tasha is an (approximately) 8 year old poodle (mix?). She came to us as the owner could no longer care for her.
Tasha is a very affectionate, well behaved little sweetheart. She is quite happy to curl up beside you wherever you are.
She has taken very well to her new foster home, where she lives with a cat, but no other dogs. This is a good thing, because she does get along fine with the resident cat, but has had some negative behavours towards other dogs of all sizes. She is not immediately reactive, usually quite submissive, but may become dominate and confrontational, and for a little dog, she does not back down.
She is crate trained, but left out, she hasn’t gotten in to too much trouble, other than finding some stray socks to chew apart.
She barks at things that go bump in the night, but is pretty quiet when she is out in the yard and dogs walk by on the other side of the fence.
She likes to go for walks, and pulls a bit, but she is pretty small so it isn’t hard at all to manage. She also loves car rides. Sits very quietly and is so well behaved.
We haven’t had Tasha around any small children, but she hasn’t had any negative reaction to any human up to this point. She does play shy, mostly to men, and would likely take to the female of the family more than the male.
Tasha also does have some separation anxiety, and barks and cries when I leave for work, so an apartment would probably not be a suitable home for her.
Tasha is available for adoption together through Grand River All Breed rescue. The adoption donation is $400. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. If you’d like to adopt, please fill out an application.
