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.

Special Needs? Luna has heartworms, a parasite that lives in the heart and if left untreated, will kill! We are currently treating Luna with what is called the "slow kill" heartworm treatment. In slow kill, the dog is given thirty days of an antibiotic called doxycycline. The dog is also given a monthly dose of an ivermectin based heartworm preventative. We use Triheart. CPR provides adopters of heartworm positive dogs twelve months of Triheart, and heartworm positive dogs are available for adoption at half the normal rate listed for each dog.

Fence needed? no
What kind of home would be best for me? Luna would fit best in a calm, low key home environment. She can be choosy about her canine companions, and gets along best with other dogs her same size and energy level.
What is my personality like? Luna has a very independent type personality. She doesn't constantly seek out human approval or affection although she does enjoy a little bit of both every now and again. Luna is a very obedient dog, and is willing to work for treats. She absolutely loves a good snack!
How I act when I first meet new people: Luna is nice to new people.
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 3/11/2008
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.
