Jojo is a 6 year old female Toy Poodle. She has come to us as her owner was no longer able to keep her. She has been a much loved pet and is looking for a new home with owners who are around for most of the day and who know and understand poodles. She would be fine to be re homed with older sensible teenagers used to dogs, we do not know what she is like with cats.
She is currently being fostered with several other dogs and is learning all about sharing her humans lap with others, if allowed to she can be bossy with the other dogs and will tell them off for daring to attempt to share “her lap space”. Her foster has been working on this with her and she has made great improvements. Aside from this minor issue Jojo is great with all the other dogs and loves to interact with them without issue.
Jojo can over bond with her human if allowed to, so care will need to be taken to ensure that the work her foster has started continues, the last thing we would want is for Jojo to be returned because she has developed separation anxiety. She will be best re homed with another similar sized dog, she can be reactive with larger dogs, to ensue that she remains well balanced and settled.
She can be reactive out on a walk when faced with people or new dogs, she is very vocal but again her foster has been working on this with her and has been having good results using positive reinforcement. This is a work in progress and will need to continue in her new home. As with many poodles Jojo can be quite vocal, she is however very responsive when told to be quiet.
Essentially she is a great girl who enjoys her walks, typical in that she can be vocal and needs a little further work to ensure she continues to improve. Jojo loves her crate and will take herself off to be when tired. She has been clean in the house with only a couple of accidents initially whilst she settled in.
Jojo has been neutered, vaccinated and micro chipped and is up to date with flea and worming treatment. She is currently being fostered in Rayleigh Essex.
