About New Beginnings Dog Rescue We are an all volunteer, non profit, 501C3 organization who provides a safe placement of pets that are surrendered by their owners and dogs that have come from a pound or shelter. We also take in some cats when we have the room for them. What makes us different from a shelter is that we have only foster homes for the dogs and they live in the homes with their foster family, so they can observe them and know what they need work on and try to help them. We are able to tell the prospective adopters exactly what the dog is like, so there are no surprises. Our dogs that come in receive any necessary veterinary care, including required vaccinations and spaying/neutering and micro-chipping. Our animals are also all adopted out with 30 days of free heatlh insurance as a gift from the rescue. The dog is then placed for adoption through a pre-adoption process that includes an application, home visit interview with the applicant(s), and veterinarian reference check. We depend on our adoption fees and donations to help us care for these animals while in foster care.
This is Buddy, a 4 year old miniature Poodle. His color is Chocolate. I'm told he's an odd size for a miniature poodle.He came into rescue because he lived with an elderly woman and all of a sudden became aggressive with her. We believe that he took over the alpha position with her and she became afraid of him.He's been in foster care with us since the end of December and we've been working with him. He was very aggressive with his food and while he has a toy. I think being around other dogs and not getting the full attention has done him some good and I believe the dogs have taught him some manners.We've stayed on top of him if we see any bad behavior and he's become the sweetest, most loveable dog. He loves kids and is happy to see anyone who comes in the house.
Buddy will only be adopted to a person who has at least one other dog and that person must be very dog savvy as to not let Buddy get away with things.
He loves going for rides in the car and walks.
He requires regular grooming, probably about every 5 weeks or so, we have had him groomed and he was excellent for the groomer.
He is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations and micro-chipped. He is housebroken, but does not like to stay in a crate and there really isn't any reason for him to because he's not destructive.
Buddy's adoption donation is $250.
If you believe you have the experience to stay in the alpha positon with Buddy and would like to apply for him, please fill out our on line application at http://newbeginningsdogrescue.org
