Breed: Small Male Poodle x
Age/DOB: 12/11/2009 (Kenzo’s exact age is a bit of a mystery)
Please note: Kenzo will be rehomed with another dog for company.
Kenzo is a quiet, gentle boy - having spent all of his life in a puppy farm, he is learning to explore the amazing outside world. Given his background, is a 'work in progress". He is an adorable, loving boy when you have gained his trust ~ all he wants to do is be close to you; sitting with you on the sofa, and sleeping on the bed with you at night. He absolutely adores to run and run and he will take off to approach any other human or dog he sees coming his way. He has no road sense and is learning to respond to his name. Extreme caution must be taken with him (he needs to be on lead only when out and about) as he may be spooked by even the most mundane thing like a truck going by as he has no experience of the general world and potential dangers.
Kenzo is great with his foster doggy siblings - he is perhaps a little too interested in cats with a tendency to chase if the cat runs. With gentle, consistent training, Kenzo will learn basic commands. He is in the process of mastering house training. He is still learning to walk well on a lead - he is just so excited to be outside for walks.
Kenzo is a social butterfly with everyone he sees - human and animal - he is still wary of strangers, and can be a bit barky on the lead when he sees other dogs, but he is still in the learning phase.
Kenzo’s new family will be prepared to do some formal training with him - being a poodle, he has the smarts and he is also quite food motivated. He will be best suited to a home where he has human company most of the time and ideally another doggy companion of similar. Patience with Kenzo as he takes time to settle into his new environment will be important; he will need his own space and to feel secure and safe.He would make a really wonderful companion for a retired person or couple who can devote to him all the time and energy that was denied him most of his life. He will be the most loving and loyal friend in return.
Kenzo is a smart, gentle boy experiencing life now as what it is to be a beloved pet. Seeing him blossom into a confident boy who loves life is the greatest reward anyone could ask for.
