Thank you for your interest in a rescued dog. Our descriptions contain all that we know about this dog today. We'll update as more information is known.
We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. While we like to know what you like in looks, a dog is more than a pretty face. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
Are you looking to adopt within the next 30 days? If so please visit our webpage at www.carolinapoodlerescue.org and complete the application. You'll find it in the menu on the left hand side. You'll also find a total listing of all our dogs available.
Just browsing but interested in poodles and poodle mixes? Please drop a note to email@example.com with your name, address and phone # and email. We'll add you to our mailing list.

What kind of home would be best for me? Roxy is looking for a quiet, easy going home. She is looking for a lap to lay in, a body to cuddle beside and someone to be her best friend. A kid-free home would be best as she is not into loud noises and lots of activity. She was adopted once, but did not want to share her new parents with another dog. She must be an only dog. Overall, Roxy gets along with almost every animal we put her around here at the farm. But, when she gets into a home, she wants all of the attention for herself! She loves a nice warm bed and space alone or next to someone. Roxy is just a sweet wallflower waiting for her nice quiet family to show her lots of love.
What is my personality like? She is sweet, quiet and easy going. Roxy is shy when you first meet her, but warms up in no time! She wants to be a spoiled princess and she is all deserving of such. She is well crate trained and house trained (according to the folks who adopted her before). You really can't go wrong with this sweetheart!
How I act when I first meet new people: Very friendly
Update 5/4/2016: Due to the sudden onset of glaucoma, unfortunately Roxy lost her left eye. However, Roxy is still the sweetheart she has always been and hasn't let it get her down! She seems to have no trouble with her vision, and has had no problems getting around.
House trained? Roxy appears to be fully house trained. Please note you must keep her on a similar schedule to ours to continue that.
My age: Estimated birthdate is 7/26/2009
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.
