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.

What kind of home would be best for me? Missey is looking for an adopter that has experience with dogs that resource guard. Since she has been with us here at CPR, she has show possessiveness over food and her crate. She needs a home without children and would do best in one where she is the only dog. Missey would greatly benefit from a very structured type of home with a confident pack leader willing to train and work with Missey through her possessiveness and resource guarding issues.
What is my personality like? Missey is a very high spirited, playful type of girl. She can be a diva and will not hesitate to let you know when she wants something. She does have a bit of a resource gaurding problem but I think it could easily be fixed with the right owner. She gets along with other dogs but she does have to run the roost! Even though she is headstrong she loves to be a spoiled lap pet and thoroughly enjoys attention. Missey has tons of energy and loves to be outside while chasing tennis balls. Due to her head strong nature, she would be best in a home with children over the age of 12.
How I act when I first meet new people: Missey greets new people with a bit of apprehension but not overly negative. It is after she gets comfortable with you that she shows her true side. There is a honeymoon period, then sadly, the resource guarder comes out.
House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
My age: est birthdate 2/1/2014
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.
