MAXWELL with his foster moms, Karen and Jennifer, before his groom!
Cream with Grey and Beige ears ( and the longest eyelashes in the world!)
3.5 years old
Gets along with other dogs
MAXWELL is a beautiful, sweet three-year old standard poodle (on the small side --46 lbs), who loves to cuddle on the couch. He seems equally happy to go for a long walk or lounge nearby his people.
He has a degenerative retinal condition, so he is going blind but is in great health otherwise and full of life!. He sees best in the evening and was even able to play fetch with a glow in the dark ball. He cannot see well during the day, but he's quite adaptable -- he figured out quickly how to negotiate his foster's house and yard. He has no problems going up and down stairs. He loves to romp with his foster dog friend. Because he can't see well, he needs to be with another patient dog who will understand when MAXWELL misses some cues.
He's quite smart and picks up on language quickly -- his fosters are working with him on "step up" and "step down" when they are out walking and come to a curb, and he seems to have it. He knows "sit," "lie down," "hug," and "shake."
He does seem to attach primarily to one person but warms up to others with a little time. He can be a little prickly with new dogs but he is fine with them after he gets his sniffs in. He can be skittish and easily startled but is easily soothed.
MAXWELL needs home with another dog who can be his buddy! A fenced yard would be best. No kids.
