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.

Fence needed? Yes, April is timid and will not walk on leashes.
What kind of home would be best for me? April is timid and needs a calm home with little to no traffic coming inside and outside the house.
What is my personality like? Baby April is such a sweet, gentle girl. How someone could say that she is "too much puppy" blows my mind. Yes, she is a puppy but she does have a softness about her that not many puppies have. She will come up to you but she is most comfortable when you are kneeling and speaking to her softly. She likes to wag her tail along with her butt because she gets excited when you call to her. April needs time to come around to people, but once she does come around she loves attention and kisses. While trying to walk her on a leash she is a little over-dramatic and thinks she cannot move. She needs a good bit of training with basic commands, and leash walking. April is okay with toys and will chase after a ball but hasn't figured out the "fetching" thing yet. April is known to be very submissive with other dogs and people as well.. she just needs a little bit of direction and time!
How I act when I first meet new people: Cautious but friendly.. She will not approach you until she is ready.
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 birth date 2/20/2016
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.
