Poodle (Standard) : : Male : : Adult : : Large
DOG LOCATION: Norwood, ON. Luke is here! He is a typical poodle full of energy, does the poodle nudge/poke and lifts your hand for a rub and is very affectionate. He loves to play with other dogs, big or small but we think he'd prefer to live as the only dog, or with a larger, easy going dog. Luke is proving to be pretty good at shaking a paw! Ok, that's a little bit of anxiety or excitement showing, but it's kinda cute! Luke has a cute sit and sometimes he'll even lie down on command. Ok, that can be hard when there is a lot going on but he sure tries! Gosh, he's cute!
Luke does have some behaviours that will need continued training. For instance, any food left out on the counter or table is fair game in his mind! I mean, why should you get all the good stuff! Luke is great at teaching you to put the food away! Also, Luke really, really, really likes to chase squirrels, rabbits and birds. He'll bark and bark at them and run and run. So he can only be trusted off leash in a securely fenced area. He also will chase when he sees them outside the window. He'll run around the house trying to catch a glimpse of the fun animal through every window in the house!
Luke is currently living with a trainer and is learning to calm himself. You see, he gets so excited that he jumps and smiles. We're teaching him that it's ok to be calm and keep his focus on us because with us is where the fun is! He is a high energy boy and will need a family willing to work with him to continue his training. It's not hard work but will require your time and commitment. He isn't a match for children as he gets too interested in their play and wants to join in!
If you're interested in Luke please email us to start the conversation. Please note we require an adoption application be completed before meeting any of our dogs. Luke's adoption fee is $450.
