Meet Ryan! Ryan is an adorable 2 year old Miniature Poodle. He was rescued from a puppy-mill in Korea. At the mill, he was kept in a crate in a dark shed and neglected. 

When he trusts you, he spends a lot of time wanting your attention and to be curled up next to you. He is very friendly once opened up! Ryan’s also making up for his lost puppyhood by running around and playing with toys. He would do well with regular exercise. He has a few sensitive areas (mostly his bum) which are best to avoid touching. He’s very smart and is learning what’s ok and what’s not very quickly. It took about a week for him to be trained to use the potty pads just by giving a firm “no” when he went in the wrong place.

Ryan is very sweet and if you’re willing to put some work in on the front end, you’ll have a very special and loving dog for many years to come. We are looking for a home who understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a dog as a member of their family. Ryan is patiently waiting!
