Thank you for your interest in dog who needs a new home. Adoption can be one of the most fulfilling experiences in your life and especially in the life of your new canine companion.
A note to those looking at CPR. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. Our job is to find those someone's. Our most successful adopters come to CPR not because they want a dog. They come to us because they want to give a dog a home. 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.
Our descriptions contain all that we know about this dog today. We'll update as more information is known.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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? An adult only home, as we have seen him resource guard a few times, Lollipup Jack needs a strong leader in his home to correct his attitude at times with resource guarding.
What is my personality like? Overall, Lollipup Jack is a very sweet guy. He is friendly and happy, and gets along well with other dogs. He will sometimes go into his crate and growl if you try to grab him. He likes his own space! Once he is out of the crate he is very friendly and loving. He will guard the crate.
Jack gets along really well with other dogs and loves to play. He is crate trained and overall has good manners. He will make an excellent addition to someone who is confident and a good trainer. You need to understand resource guarding and how to redirect his behavior to the positive.
Update 2/16/2017 notes from caregiver.-
"Lollipup Jack! First with the bad habits. He's crate aggressive. So crate aggressive he gets mad when I crate his cottage mates. Inside the trailer he's more uptight and aggravates other dogs in their face. Constantly barking at them when he's wound up. But outside he does MUCH better. He let me walk him. But he pulls a good bit. He's such the cuddle bug and a playful nipper. He played with a toy with me for a little while. He will sit and laid down a few times. He would probably do his absolute best as an only dog. And if he has any siblings they need to be patient. He barked at Salem the cat a lot. No kids. He's a big kisser! And loves to tickle your nose with his poofy hair."
7/6/2017: All Jack is, is a huge love bug with a not so good reputation. He is very loving but he is also head strong. Even though he has his own behavioral issues, that does not mean he cannot be loved. He just needs a stern and patient leader to help him over come his obstacles.
How I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
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: Estimated age is 3 years old, estimated birthday is 7/4/2012
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. Most of our dogs are at our farm in Pacolet, South Carolina.
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.
Thank you for considering CPR.
