Meet Carter

Meet Carter, the charming and lovable terrier/poodle mix searching for his forever home in Doylestown PA!
Despite some challenges, with the right owner by his side he's is ready to embrace a bright future filled with love, companionship, and plenty of wagging tails.

Carter is a friendly, cuddly, and silly pup who knows how to bring a smile to your face with his playful antics. While Carter may feel a little anxious from time to time, especially in unfamiliar situations, his anxiety is manageable with consistent routines and the continuation of his prescribed anxiety medications. These small measures go a long way in helping Carter feel secure and at ease in his surroundings.

One thing you should know about Carter is that he's a real go-getter when it comes to playtime! He's got energy for days and loves nothing more than a good game of fetch or a spirited hike. For this reason, a large, fenced in yard and an active owner are ideal to managing his energy and anxiety. Carter is self-winding, meaning he can keep himself entertained with his favorite toys for hours!
Carter has successfully lived with other furry friends in the past and even frequented a doggy daycare, where he thrived in a lively and energetic environment. While he may be a little leash reactive, his true personality shines when he's off the leash, revealing a friendly and outgoing nature.

It is important to note that Carter can occasionally be protective over his bones and meals, so it's best to provide these in a separate space away from other pets to ensure a peaceful and stress-free dining experience.

Carter also has a soft spot for our feline friends and has formed a special bond with his current cat friend who matches his playfulness and confidence.
To bring out the best in Carter, he needs an owner who is experienced with challenging dogs and has the patience and understanding to work through his leash reactivity and anxiety. Carter thrives on consistency and structure, so an owner who can provide him with a stable routine will be the perfect match. When it comes to training Carter, positive reinforcement and treats are key. Punishment is not his style, as it only leaves him feeling anxious and withdrawn. With love, patience, and tasty rewards, you'll witness his true brilliance shine through!
Carter is a remarkable dog who requires an exceptionally experienced owner who understands the importance of continued training and recognizes his limitations. It's crucial to keep in mind that Carter has a strong prey drive and may chase after deer and other small animals. To ensure his safety, he will need to be kept in a securely fenced area or on a long line when enjoying outdoor adventures.

Carter is crate trained and understands the importance of having his own cozy space. It serves as a place where he can retreat to when he needs a moment of solitude and is an important part of his routine to help him feel safe.

If you're searching for a dog who will bring endless joy, laughter, and snuggles into your life, look no further than Carter. He's the perfect canine companion for someone who is up for the rewarding challenge of helping him overcome his anxieties. Carter is eagerly waiting to find his forever home with a patient and experienced owner who will give him the love and care he deserves.

Upon adoption, Carter will come fully equipped, bringing along his crate, bed, toys, food, and favorite blanket for those moments of comfort and familiarity.
