Lucas is listed for adoption only so our supporters and friends can know who he is.
Lucas is dying. He has heartworms and in operable mass in his mouth that is growing. There is no removing the mass. We can only buy him time to depart gracefully, enjoying his last days instead of having his time shortened by a euthanasia needle when so many things still bring him pleasure.
If you would like to support our programs which allow older and sick dogs to pass on with dignity, please consider becoming a patron. Patrons donate at least $25 per month to our poodle farm, all tax deductible and all going to help dogs like Jackson enjoy the end of life.

What kind of home would be best for me? Lucas is dying. The mass in his mouth is cancerous. He would love a happy home to live out his last few months, somewhere that won't care that his time is short. His personality is all happy and he will give you his love for as long as he can.
What is my personality like? Sweet and happy.
How I act when I first meet new people: friendly and happy
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 5 years old est birthdate 5/9/2011
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.
