My name is Moe. I am a 7 year old Miniature Poodle cross, I am neutered and up to date on my needles.
The first few years of my life were not at all good ones. I was a Puppy mill boy and because of that, I am looking for a very special home. I am older now, but because of my past I do have some special requirements.
I am a nervous boy, a lot of things still scare me and cause me stress. So I am looking for a very quiet home. I want a home that has extra time for me, maybe someone who is older, retired or home during the day.
I would prefer to be an only child, as I don’t really understand cats, so I kind of chase them around. I do like other small dogs as long as they are not too rambunctious. I prefer not to be around children, because they make me nervous.
I need a peaceful home with no fast movements, no wrestling around and no jumping up and down please, I just don’t do chaos well. I don’t even like the broom or the vacuum! I’m just a little scared of everything, and I like things to be calm. When I get scared, I bark and try to settle things down, it really stresses me out! I also need supervision when I am scared because I go into flight or fight mode and will bolt, so keeping be leashed at all times outside of the house is necessary.
Despite all that stuff, I am a real snuggle bug! I love to sit beside you or on your lap and sleep with you at night. I love to walk, but if we don’t get out much that’s okay too.. I’m not going to do anything destructive because I don’t chew on anything that’s not mine. I like the car too, so a drive will always do just fine. Oh yeah, I’m not yappy either! I only bark if someone knocks, or if I see the broom.
I do have one last confession…. I sometimes poop in the house. I go outside, and if you are home a lot, I will probably only go outside, but sometimes when you are away, I just can’t wait! I also wear a belly band because again, way back in the day I had to mark my territory and I never really learned proper potty skills. I missed a few things growing up the way I did, but I truly believe that with the right person, you really can teach an old dog new tricks.
If you have the time and the unconditional love I need, I promise to be your best friend forever!
