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: 3/9/16
Reason for being in rescue: Owner release to a local shelter with another dog named Romeo. 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. Juliette has been through a lot. She was expecting puppies and had an injured back leg. The puppies she was carrying did not live and once her injured leg was evaluated, it was decided it needed to be amputated. At the time Juliette was spayed, she had several mammary tumors removed. The surgeries were hard on this sweet girl, but she has fully recovered.
Foster location: foster home located close to Waxhaw, NC
Special Needs? Juliette had trauma to her left rear leg and had to have it amputated, but she gets around no problem on her 3 legs. Juliette also has some arthritis in her front shoulder.
Additionally, when she was spayed, we found her mammary chain was full of tumors so we decided to do a full mastectomy. However, there were so many tumors that the vet only did a partial mastectomy and removed the worst tumors. The remaining tumors should not be as invasive due to the fact Juliette has been spayed. There is always the threat that one of these remaining tumors could rupture, creating a "oozing" sore and surgery would again be needed.
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 owners who need a pet to love that does not require a lot of exercise. She would be the perfect companion to lay in your lap as you watch TV or read. She currently lives in a foster home with other dogs, but could live with or without other dogs. Much like some people, Juliette likes to have some "alone time" where she can just be by herself and not messed with by the other dogs.
What is my personality like? Juliette enjoys being a pet and loves to be held and rubbed. She will just melt into your chest while she's being held. She will wag her tail from hip to hip when she greets you. She will ask to be picked up by touching your leg with her nose and frantically waving her tail. She would love to be someone's cherished pet!
How I act when I first meet new people: Juliet will be quiet at first, but once she relaxes, she is very friendly.
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. Currently Juliette and Romeo stay in a confined area of the home during the day and use pee pads while foster mom is at work.

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.
