Bichon Frise/Poodle Mix
Adoption Pending!

Dutton is a sweet, gentle, slightly timid little man who is going to make a wonderful addition to some lucky family. He is very easy-going and loves to sit with his person. His transformation since first coming into his foster home has been remarkable! He was able to get into the vet quickly to have a dental with about 10 teeth removed and then, after a little recovery time, a much needed double enucleation, which means his eyes were removed. As he recovered, a completely different personality began to appear. Instead of being shut down and not reacting to verbal interactions, he started following his foster mom around the house, sniffing and exploring his environment and even barking when meals were being prepared.

Dutton is happy to sleep in a dog bed on the floor but really enjoys a lap so hopefully his new family will like to cuddle.

Dutton has many foster siblings, male and female dogs, big and small, and he is very indifferent with all of them. He also shows no interest in the two cats he lives with.

Dutton eats kibble soaked in water and he has a super appetite.

He is ok in the car and does better traveling in a dog bed with sides to help him feel secure.
His foster mom works full time and part time jobs which works for Dutton since he is a great nap-taker, but he cannot make it several hours without pottying in the house. He is kept in the kitchen where it's ok if he has an accident. He certainly understands that being outside means it's potty time. It's anticipated that if Dutton is able to have a potty break every 3-4 hours he will catch on quickly to eliminating outside. He has actually shown subtle signs indicating that he has to go that his foster mom is just picking up on.

This boy deserves a loving forever home with a ton of one on one time.
