Panda is a not quite 3 year old (his birthday is February) black brindle fluff male. Yes he is incredibly handsome but, before we proceed, the major things you need to know is that Panda needs a home with NO OTHER DOGS and NO CHILDREN. That means no kids, no grandkids, no kids that play on/pass through your property, etc. If you think you may want to get another dog down the road then Panda is not for you. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Panda is a little shy at first meeting but warms up in minutes. He lacks self confidence so his new family will need to know how to work with this. He does have some separation anxiety and always wants to be with people. He would do best with an active home where he would have the chance to burn off his puppy energy. He is also VERY smart so tends to be very alert, a barker and will watch humans and mimic behaviors. For example, he saw his foster Mom move a gate and went right over and slid the gate with his paw.

He does have great manners with adults, is very affectionate and loves to give kisses. He is fine with men and woman. He is well trained and walks great on a lead. In typical Cardigan fashion, he loves toys and is very playful. After all, he really is still a baby boy at three years old. Panda also loves to ride in the car. He is house trained, crate trained, completely vet checked and UTD on all care.

Panda has a huge dislike for the vets office. He threw a holy fit at being examined, lost his mind when he was attempted to be muzzled and ultimately was sedated so he could be examined. Clearly there has been some bad experiences in Panda's life, and most likely at a young age. His foster Mom's vet is so awesome that she is having Panda come and visit the clinic a few times a week, just to be spoiled by staff, to help give him a positive association. He will need gentle and confident guidance to become what he was meant to be.

Due to all of his quirks, we are looking for adopters within a reasonable driving distance (approximately three hours) in case there are any issues. Panda is being fostered in south central PA. Our first concern is for Panda's welfare. He seems to have had a very confusing puppyhood and we do not want to have him put into any situation that would compromise his well being. Panda is a wonderful dog who is deeply loving but needs some hand (or paw) holding to be the best version of his fluffy self.

Serious inquiries should submit an application directly to Karen Smith at for consideration. Homes with invisiable fences will not be considered for this, or any dog placed through our organization.
