  Jacques, 1.5 years Male Poodle / Bouvier de Flandres  Mix

Jacques is a 1.5 year old Standard Poodle / Bouvier de Flandres mix. His date of birth is 4-9-11. He is a really nice dog despite what he's been through. If we're careful with his placement, here's why. Jacques had a tough start on life. He and Gigi his mom were rescued from a horrible hoarding situation where he was found living in a cramped, filthy chicken coop. He has been in foster care recently and is flourishing. He’s on a healthy diet to put on some much needed weight -- he is 30 lbs underweight. He is all puppy, full of playful energy and discovering the wonders of a new life. He is stunning with a silken black coat. Obedience training will be necessary, especially because of his size. But he really wants to please and seems to be a quick learner. In spite of his past treatment, he craves human companionship and is very affectionate. He seems to be okay around other dogs but his primary drive is for human interaction. He cannot be left alone for long periods of time. He is a smart dog who needs to be challenged with a lot of positive reinforcement. No invisible fence for this dog who has been through enough pain and suffering already. Jacques is a gentle giant who really wants to be someone’s lap dog. He is available to be seen on 1/5/12.
