What is my personality like? Gizmo has come a long way since he first came to us. He was a "touch-me-not" but is now a love bug with the people that he knows. He is seeking a female only home as he does not trust men.
It will take Gizmo at least a week to start trusting someone, but that is a risk someone will have to take if they want a great dog out of him. He is wonderful once he gets to know you! Gizmo is up for anything and loves to go everywhere with you.
He gets along great with other dogs, and should be adopted by someone with another pet. He ignores cats so could go to a home with a cat. He will follow their lead and realize that you are not going to hurt him! I do not think he will budge for a male owner, however.
Who I am seeking: Gizmo is seeking a female-only home, and this is not debatable. Absolutely no children. He loves to go for walks and follow you around step for step.

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.
