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.

Date into Rescue: 9/16/2016
Reason for being in rescue: Found as a stray by a SC groomer
Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Special Needs? Very shy, needs a gentle owner
Weight: about 6 lbs
Height: est 7" at the shoulder
Adoption Fee: $299
Fence needed? Lily needs something secure as I don't think she'll ever be an off leash player. She respects our 4' chain link fence but really doesn't care to be outside all that much . Out to do her business and she's right back inside. So I don't think she needs one, but it would not hurt.
What kind of home would be best for me? Wherever Lily came from, it wasn't a good place where she received the kind of socialization she should have gotten as a young pup. She needs someone experienced and patient to bring out the best in her. Lily needs a confident poodle leader in her home to show her what humans like. She would also benefit from someone who is home at least part of the day and she would do well with a small dog companion. Too much alone time would not work for her.
What is my personality like? Timid right now and needing a lot of attention. She needs to spend a ton of time in a lap, and eventually needs confident building exercises like basic obedience.
How I act when I first meet new people: Very afraid. She sometimes squeals when you pick her up although once in your arms, she will settle down. She needs patience.
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 2 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.
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.
