Fence needed? Yes - Neva is a lovely, high energy young standard and she needs to romp and play safely off leash on a daily basis.
What kind of home would be best for me? Neva's life will be very short thanks to a birth defect that caused her liver to grow incorrectly. The official name is intra-hepatic shunt or AV fistula. The best home for Neva will be first and foremost, one that has researched this condition and become familiar with Neva's dietary and supplemental needs. The best home for Neva will also be one that understands that it is not the years of your life but the life in your years that makes the difference in a life well lived.
What is my personality like? Happy, bubbly, mischevious, spirited, outgoing..in short, she is a typical, standard poodle. She loves to counter surf, jump baby gates, untie my robe in the morning when I am sleepy and not paying attention and run and romp and chase toys. She is energetic and playful. Were you to meet Neva in person, you would wonder why she was thin but then you'd watch her and figure she was just hyper.
How I act when I first meet new people: Neva's philosophy - "There are no strangers in this world, only ones who aren't friends yet."
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: birthdate 12/16/2014
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.
