  • Description

Breed: Standard Poodle-Golden Retriever
Age: Adult
Sex: Male
Size: L

NOTE: We are not accepting applications from outside of Southern Ontario due to Charlie's issues. We need to do a slow transfer to his new home and will require a home that is relatively local to his foster location. More details available upon request.

Charlie is a handsome 3 year old neutered male golden retriever/poodle mix, aka “Golden-Doodle”. He is an aloof boy who does not particularly like to be petted or fawned over. He'll lay near his human but is not at all a touchy-feely dog.

We are seeking an experienced dog handler for Charlie. Although Charlie is very smart, he is easily stressed over new things and new people and does not react well in these types of situations. He will not allow much touching. He is sensitive to motion and sound so is often startled by unexpected touch or noises and gets anxious travelling in a vehicle.

He enjoys doggie day care and gets along well with most other dogs although he can be a bit of a bully if allowed. His handler will need to recognize the body language signs and redirect his behaviour when necessary.

Charlie would do well in a calm environment without children where daily life is pretty routine. He would be okay with another dog(s) if that dog is not overly submissive. If he did go to a home with a canine buddy, dinner time would need to be appropriately controlled. He is a resource guarder when it comes to high value items so his handler will need to work on this with him.

Charlie is house trained, leash trained, has good manners and knows basic commands.

NOTE: We often receive numerous inquiries on our animals, therefore, only applicants who have submitted our application form will be considered.

Also, be advised we do not adopt out any animals that are to become "gifts" (unless the animal is going to be gifted to that adopter's children/spouse within the same home) and this is reflected in our legally-binding adoption contract. Pets given as gifts to a different household often become unwanted or neglected pets.

Things you should know about buying or adopting a pet

While pet sellers can be reputable individuals or breeders who treat their animals well, the ease of selling pets over the Internet also makes it attractive to careless, irresponsible breeders and scammers. To protect yourself, you must be careful and believe only what you see and not what you are told. It is highly recommended to arrange for an inspection of the home where the pets are bred. This allows you to check that the mother and other animals are living in suitable conditions, being well cared for, and are in good health.

Remember that the Kijiji Pets section is NOT intended to facilitate uncontrolled breeding, irresponsible commercial pet trading, trade of dogs or any other animal for the purpose of fighting or stud services. Any ads that are suspected of promoting this kind of activity or reported to us will be removed. Users are responsible for adhering to the applicable conditions in relation to adopting, buying, selling or listing of an ad on Kijiji.

Kijiji encourages, where possible, the adoption of pets and encourages all pet owners to have their animals spayed or neutered as well as microchipped.

When looking for a pet, it is important to meet the breeder or seller and examine the pet before agreeing to anything. Since Kijiji is local to your community, this should be easy to arrange. Never adopt/buy a pet from someone who is unwilling to let you see how and where the animal is living!
