My name is Drake and I am a 10-month-old Cocker x Poodle who arrived at Animatch in March. Where have I been you ask? To put it bluntly, I was a hot mess and really not adoptable back then. Bought from a commercial breeder by a family with no experience; they tried their best but I was a case for the experts. Snapping, biting, barking, screeching -- I was totally out of control. Six months old and so much needed to change in order for me to be adoptable. Animatch loves dogs – all dogs. They value old dogs, young dogs, small dogs, big dogs, well-behaved dogs and unruly dogs but most of all …. they love underdogs. Dogs who find themselves in a situation where the future looks grim if something doesn’t change. Of course, Animatch knew just the right dog-loving people to enlist in helping me – *FIC to the rescue. Thanks to Virginie and all her amazing students who have been working diligently with me for months, I am ready to take the next huge step. First and foremost, I absolutely require an experienced guardian – one who works with positive reinforcement. My family needs to be active; I must exercise these legs and this nose daily. My adopter cannot just pick me up at FIC and walk out the door expecting that all will be perfect. Let’s continue to reinforce all that I have learned on a daily basis and don’t forget to make it fun for both of us. Another patient, well-balanced dog in the family would be great but you can forget about cats! Apartment/condo living is not for me as I am quick to sound the alarm. Insofar as children are concerned, older ones (over 12) would best. If you are ready to dedicate your time, affection, patience, and life to our happy future, we’ll make some beautiful memories. I am so ready to feel your love. Please fill in the Adoption Form and ask for Drake.
