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 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 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?   Wally is looking for a home with a dog savvy adopter that will be a strong pack leader.  He is not a good match for a first time dog owner.  Wally is the type of dog that you have to show him you are in charge and that you aren't going to put up with any shenanigans.   Once you have earned his respect as pack leader he is the most loyal and lovable companion you could ask for.   He is bonded to one of our caregivers and she can do anything she wants with him.  Wally prefers to have all the love and attention all to himself and would do best in a home as the only dog.

What is my personality like?  In the beginning, Wally was a little difficult and headstrong, but now he that he is comfortable and used to the routine he is much more agreeable and obedient.  Wally is very eager to please and responds well to verbal correction.  He already knows how to sit and is learning how to wait at thresholds (doors, gates, etc).  He knows the wait command but if you don't make him do it he will try to sneak on in the door.  Wally doesn't like being outside and prefers to just go out to use the potty and come right back in.  He would make a great lap dog as he loves to cuddle and spend time with his person.  Wally earned the nickname Wally Walrus because he resembles a walrus and always rolls over for a belly rub. 

How I act when I first meet new people:  Wally is a little apprehensive of new people, but warms up quickly.  

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: 4 years old

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 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.
