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.

the CPR Adoption team
Date into Rescue: 04/05/2016
Reason for being in rescue: found as a stray by a local animal control , had been hit by a car
Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Special Needs? I had a bunch and these CPR people have slowly but surely taken care of them. I had a bad hip and needed FHO surgery (done), I have cataracts and needed them looked at (done) and I was heartworm positive when they got me but now I am testing negative yeah! So now - it's time to find a home
Weight: est 13 lbs
Height: est 13" at the shoulder
Adoption Fee: $200
Fence needed? No
What kind of home would be best for me? Clover is happy and laid back. He'd be a great first dog for a professional person. I don't mind snoozing the day away while you go earn the kibble for both of us and when you get home he'll be ready to play. He would do well as a companion dog to another dog who is lonely or as a companion for someone retired or shut in.
What is my personality like? Sweet and affectionate.
How I act when I first meet new people: Friendly.
Medical notes: When Clover first came to CPR he had many problems including a dislocated hip.
The hip was fixed first - in April of this year, Clover underwent FHO (femoral head off) surgery. Here's the official write up form our doctor in official doctorspeak:
L eft side femoral head isolated via gluteal myotomy removed with bone chisel and reseated and tensioned sutured with pds 2/0 into joint capsule and 3 gluteal muscles tiers skin was stapled there is an error on prior notes pelvic fracture was ischial proximal to right acetabulum . prognosis is good for this fracture with rest as there is no discernible crepitus in joint manipulation
So once the hip was fixed, we moved on to his cataracts. On 9/13/2016, Clover was seen by a dog ophthamalolgist. Here are the results:
Clover has developed a complete cataract in his left eye. The cataract likely developed in the last few years. The eye is quiet with no inflammation or signs of glaucoma.
However, the left eye has a retinal detachment, likely from inflammation when the cataract first developed. This is not painful but because of the retinal detachment, Clover would not benefit from cataract surgery.
He will eventually develop glaucoma in his left eye, however, this will likely not occur for many years.
Last - Clover has heartworms. He is currently on the slow kill method of heartworm treatment. This simply means that he has been on an ivermectin based heartworm preventative since he came to us and he was on doxycycline for 1 month when he first arrived. He should stay on an ivermectin based heartworm preventative (Heartguard, Triheart or Iverhart) for the rest of his life and be retested every year .Please note that as of September 2016, Clover tested negative for heartworms. This is good news! Since he is so recently clear, Clover's adoption will include 12 months of Triheart heartworm preventative.
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 birthdate 3/24/2008
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.
