The best lapdog there ever was!

Hi there! My name is Bubba, and I’m a 10-year-old Poodle Mix male, weighing in at 14 pounds.  I am potty- and leash-trained but do not like crates in any form or fashion.

My former owner fell on some rough times so thankfully, TAP scooped me up and I’ve been living my best life with my foster family ever since.  I have already been neutered, and as far as my health is concerned, I have a grade III/IV heart murmur. I have borderline to mild systolic dysfunction (heart muscle weakening) This disease can result in congestive heart failure (fluid build up in or around the lungs causing cough and shortness of breath, or fluid build up in the belly causing abdominal swelling). My past diet (grain free, high in peas/lentils/potatoes) may be a contributing factor, and I have been on a new diet since coming to TAP. I will start Pimobendan (~$50.00 monthly cost, depends on where purchased and market value) a medication shown to provide additional heart muscle strength.

I’ve been told that I’m just the sweetest boy! It takes me a little bit to come out of my shell, but once I do, I’m very loving.  In fact, everyone who has met me has become my biggest fan!  My favorite activity is napping, but I also enjoy getting gently massaged, being petted, and of course, eating lots of treats! I have a calm demeanor, and the only time I’ve barked in my foster home was when I had an emergency potty situation.  I have mild separation anxiety and don’t like to be left alone, but I have learned how to calm myself down pretty quickly. 

Because I’m in my golden years, I’d love to be with a family who can give me lots of love and affection.  I’d do best in a mellow home, especially with someone who works from home and who can give me constant companionship throughout the day.  Being around other small and gentle doggie siblings would be fine, but no young kitties, please, due to my age.  Kitties are A-OK.  Other than that, I promise to bring a smile to your face and give you plenty of licks!

My adoption fee is $150 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.  If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/.
