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: 3/19/16
Reason for being in rescue: Owner release to a local shelter with another dog named Juliette. The shelter did not have any information on the pair, but they are older dogs that easily get overlooked in shelters and needed help ASAP. Thanks to CPR's generous supporters we were able to save these sweet dogs. Romeo has since been thriving in his foster home.
Foster location: close to Waxhaw, NC
Special Needs: no
*Note - Romeo has cataracts. We have had Romeo evaluated for cataracts and while one cataract is beyond surgery, we were very happy to learn he still has 80% sight in his other eye. Romeo has had a total ear ablation, an expensive surgery to close an ear canal due to reoccurring ear infections...which means Romeo received excellent care at some time in his life.
Weight: 15 pounds
Height: 12 inches at the shoulder
Adoption Fee: $129
Fence needed? no
What kind of home would be best for me? A quiet home, with older considerate children. Romeo would be a great companion to a couple who would like a pet that did not require a lot of exercise.
What is my personality like? Romeo is very affectionate, very loving, seeks attention. He does like his space, and can be bossy to other pets that get into that space. But for the most part, he is a live and let live kind of guy.
How I act when I first meet new people: reserved, cautious but if feels comfortable, will seek attention.
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 birthdate 3/19/2006
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.
