Peppadew “Dewey” – READ BIO
Peppadew, “Dewey”, was one of our #Charcuteriecuties born of Brie and bottlefed/hand-reared since day 9 of life. Like most coddled babies, he grew up testing limits and trying to figure out boundaries since he missed out on the healthy litter-interaction and the corrections of Momma throughout the very formative first several weeks/months. Dewey found a home but after a couple weeks, the other dogs in the home let their family know they weren’t keen on welcoming another as a full-time addition. So, Dewey came back to us! Dewey is now a five month old (DOB 11/19/20) pup in need of a stable environment with a proven history of discipline, healthy boundaries, committed to freeing this baby from his worry of who is in charge and capable of showing him all the good life as a pet with established rules has to offer! Dewey is very dog-friendly and will need a home with a pack to join. He thinks cats are also in on the fun so only homes with cats that won’t run in fear – or simply a home without – will work. Dewey is going to be a big boy (he’s only about 35 pounds now, though he looks way bigger in pics!) and doesn’t have a concept of personal space so no young kids to be safe. He would benefit from teenagers to help run him and join in on the fun of training and confidence-building games. He will absolutely require a fenced yard where he can safely dig – he loves it – and go potty since he will not go on-leash. Peppadew will also need continued commitment to mental stimulation like nose-work, higher-level tricks, obstacle courses, food-challenges, etc. Applications for Peppadew can be found @ maxxandme.org
If you have young kids, if you do not have other dogs, if you do not have a fence, if you aren’t able to demonstrate your commitment to and history of positive discipline and healthy boundaries with dogs, you will not hear back from us. We do not want Dewey bouncing homes so all things mentioned ARE imperative and NOT negotiable.
Adoption fee is $350 and like ALL MAXX PUPPIES, Dewey will be required to undergo positive reinforcement puppy training classes to begin ASAP
