Adoption Pending……Spencer/Tavares FL

Spencer is a vivacious very young 6 yr old 80 lb Standard Poodle boy.  This BIG beautiful black boy will charm your socks off and have you wrapped around his heart in no time.  He does not know a stranger.. He loves his people, he has loads of energy, and is a very busy boy. Spencer knows his commands. He will sit, come, stay, drop it, and play ball til the cows come home.  He is house trained, prefers not to be crated, and has one speed: full throttle!   Spencer is all smiles, and a well adjusted boy that you can’t help but fall in love with him. He is super smart, he has been through extensive training.  He can be vocal and lets you know what he wants and when he wants it.  He walks well on a leash…..until there are other dogs and then he can lose focus.   He will literally melt your heart and is very smart as a whip.  He prefers not to share resources like balls and toys and food.  We are working on that, however, since he has always been an only dog, sharing is not his strong point.  His new owner will need to like to play ball and games, frequently take him on walks/runs, and provide daily mental stimulation. Spencer will literally play 24/7 with you or another dog.  Spencer does not come with an OFF Button.  It is important you have the time and strength to channel 80 lbs of energy.   Occasionally, he will decide to hump another dog, or small child if allowed, and you need to be able to control this behavior.  Spencer has a big personality, and he lights up the room when he walks in.  He captures everyone’s attention!  Spencer is gentle with people and has good manners taking treats.
Spencer needs a minimum of a 6 foot fence with plenty of room to play ball, chase and do zoomies.  (NO EXCEPTIONS PLEASE)  We recommend Spencer’s s new owner continue his training as he is eager to learn with positive reinforcement.  Spencer is not a service dog candidate or therapy dog candidate.   Prior attempts have failed.  He does not chase squirrels or have a prey drive.  He just likes to chase, play, and wrangle with other dogs and you.  Spencer would like to sleep in your bed with you so move over and please make room!  We recommend no children under 10 reside in his new home due to his size and simply the ability to handle  a fast 85 lb dog. His new owner should have experience with larger dogs.  Spencer can be an only dog in his new home as he has been his entire life and that would likely work best.  However,  he can live in a home with another dog of like size and non-stop high energy that is not annoyed or intimidated by his desire to play 24×7.  Small dogs, cats, and farm animals would not work with Spencer.  
Spencer requires frequent brushing and monthly grooming.  He is house trained, and looking for a home where his family is home most of the time. He will not do well in a home that crates 4-6-8-10 hours a day.  He has been accustomed to someone being home 24×7 with him all his life.  Preference will be given to those with Standard Poodle experience or large dog experience because he can be a handful.  Spencer is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, heartworm negative, and microchipped. He appears to be in perfect health and has had excellent care all of his life. Spencer’s owner is deceased, and his elderly wife is simply not able to provide Spencer with the active life he needs.
