What is my personality like? Bean is an exemplary representation of his breed. He is intelligent, spunky, loyal, handsome and just all around a sweet soul. Beans only flaw is that he does not fare well with other animals, he likes all of the attention for himself! He initially came in one year ago (March 2015) as a bonded pair with a male standard poodle. They were best friends and Bean did GREAT with him. Unfortunately we had to split them up because no one wanted them both - we felt it wasn't fair to make them live at the farm forever, when a forever home could be right around the corner.
Bean most definitely has the potential to go through training to work on his skills with other animals. He was not neutered upon his arrival and has calmed down a lot since we neutered him. He knows basic obedience, walks well on a leash and is crate trained. He is a big baby who wants to lay in your lap, play with toys and give you all of his heart.
Bean needs a fenced in yard and or a hiking partner! He is strong, active and loves being out and about with his person. He had a history of fence climbing, however we have never seen him do this in his time at the farm. We haven't seen him with children, however his people skills are top notch as he loves everyone that he meets. He welcomes all humans with an open heart, a big smile and a wagging tail. He is an absolute love bug.
Who I am seeking: Experienced, active owner.

Please understand that these are rescued dogs, and sometimes their ages are only a guess. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture, and not to discriminate against older dogs. You never know which dog will steal your heart when you meet them!
How I act when I first meet new people:
Please note - we do not ship dogs. If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip.
To apply, please visit our webpage at www.carolinapoodlerescue.org and visit the tab on the left that directions you to the online application.
Please note that when screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, color, age, etc. Others here may be a better fit for you. It is very difficult to get to know a living animal from a picture and a short description. Since we are constantly getting in new dogs, this may be a dog not in our listings yet. We want you to be very happy with your new companion and will make suggestions based on what you tell us about you.
