Poodle (Standard) : : Male : : Young : : Medium
DOG LOCATION: Toronto. Blackberry is a 1 year old, pure bred standard poodle, weighting in at 45 lbs (20.5 kg). Blackberry was born with deformed kidneys, and this means his life will be far shorter than he deserves. Unfortunately his kidneys will continue to decline until the heartbreaking decision will need to be made. We're usually ready for this with senior dogs, but Blackberry is so young and full of life!
Blackberry is a very active dog who requires lots of exercise and on-going training. He requires leash training as he is reactive and will jump, bark and lunge at passing dogs and of course he wants to chase squirrels. Well, chasing is fun so who can blame him!
Blackberry has been learning so much while in our care. He's a smart boy who really likes to learn new things. He can be a handful but he'll make you laugh every day!
If you have a love for senior dogs, and giving them the best in their final days, maybe Blackberry is the dog for you! He'll fill your life with joy and some days make you want to pull your hair out! But it's all worth it when he looks at you with those gorgeous eyes!
