Requirements: Regular professional grooming
Hey everybody, I’m Hickory, and I’m looking for my home sweet home!
So what happened was, I looked up one day and found myself at the shelter. Before I knew it, the Releash people picked me up, took me to the vet, checked me out, pulled a few teeth, and said I was fit as a fiddle. They tell me I’m around 8 years old. I kept hearing them call me a poodle, but when the nice vet shaved off all my matted fur, they said they found a spaniel underneath. So I guess I’m some sort of spaniel/poodle mix. Take a gander at my rescue picture to get an idea of what I will look like once my fur grows back.
You didn’t hear it from me, but foster mama says I’m just about perfect. I’m house-trained, crate-trained, and leash-trained. I love car rides, people, kids, other dogs, and food. Oh yeah, that is my one peccadillo. I love food a little too much. I have about 3 pounds I need to lose so I can be my best self. They say I should weigh 20 - 24 lbs, and I currently weigh 27. I did weigh 29 when I was rescued, so I’m two pounds healthier already. All I gotta do is stop eating people food and take at least one walk a day. I get all the dog food and treats I want, and I enjoy our strolls, so it ain’t difficult for me. If walking isn’t your thing, I’m tickled pink to just hang out in the yard and lay in the sun.
But, do you wanna know my favorite thing? Napping…. on the couch next to my people. That is something!! You have to be okay with me being on your furniture cause I love being on a couch. Speaking of furniture, I’m real good at sleeping in the bed with you too, but if you want me to sleep in my crate, I don’t mind doing my snoring in there.
If you have another dog, I would love to be their buddy. If you don’t, I’ll just give all my love to you. I’m told I’m easy going, sweet, eager to please, super smart, soulful, laid back, and all around a really wonderful dog. Aw, shucks, now I’m blushing.
