Pascal the Toy Poodle
**PASCAL SADLY HAD ONE FAILED ADOPTION AND WAS RETURNED TO US** Unfortunately for Pascal his first adopters did over estimate their time and commitment to training and did not follow the advice they were given to help him settle with some boundaries in place, and he snapped after they were playing rough with him after a few days in his new home.
Pascal is a super sassy Toy Poodle who came to Little Legs from a local vet after being surrendered to be put to sleep at one year old – he was a much loved dog but his owners were not able to handle him and he had resorted to resource guarding and does have a bite history. Pascal has been in long term care of the rescue and made massive progress, he lives with other small dogs in foster and is generally a very fun, affectionate boy but will need confident and experienced owners who can handle his occasional outbursts. These are infrequent and short lived, but he can be a tiny diva when he can’t get his own way. Pascal loves to play with a ball and toys and to cuddle up in a donut bed, but will sometimes guard a fluffy bed if allowed to. Out and about Pascal is a dream and loves meeting new people, walks beautifully on a lead and is happy to be handled as long as he knows you are going to pick him up. Pascal is muzzle trained and accepts this well. He weighs only 3kg. Pascal is good at the groomers and will tolerate ear cleaning and plucking with a muzzle on. Pascal is fully vaccinated and will require regular hair cuts. Pascal could be an only dog in the right circumstances.
We will not place Pascal in a hurry due to his history, we want his next home to be forever.
