Thank you for your interest in dog who needs a new home.  Adoption can be one of the most fulfilling experiences in your life and especially in the life of your new canine companion.

A note to those looking at CPR.  We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone.  Our job is to find those someone's.  Our most successful adopters come to CPR not because they want a dog.  They come to us because they want to give a dog a home.  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. 

Our descriptions contain all that we know about this dog today.  We'll update as more information is known. 

Are you looking to adopt within the next 30 days?  If so please visit our webpage at 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.

What kind of home would be best for me?   Mia is an affectionate, happy dog who epitomizes the absolute best of the bull mastiff breed.  She was originally owner release / can't care for and one of our caregivers took her home for several months while we worked to resolve her cherry eye .She loved Mia but realized that she is far too big and needs much more attention than she could give so tearfully asked us to find Mia a home.

Mia likes to chase cats, so a no cat home is best. She has been fine around other dogs big and small. She can get overly energetic with some, so it is best for her to have a playmate around her size and energy level.

What is my personality like?    Bouncy, sweet, loves to play.  Hasn't met a squeaky toy she did not like.  She can be a bit rough on toys, too.  She has no one here that is really her size or energy level to play with but her limited interaction has been okay.

Update 2/15/2017: Mia has a lot of energy that needs to be put to good use. She is always full of life, bouncy and ready to play. Mia is a sweet heart but her energy can be a little over whelming so she needs the right person to understand her need for exercising and play. 

Medical note:  Mia has cherry eye (a tear duct that protrudes) in both eyes.  In September, our vet attempted reduction by tucking but the tucking did not stay in.  Because removing cherry eye often creates dry eye later in life, we've opted not to do additional surgery at this time.

How I act when I first meet new people: Sweetheart - she loves 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:  Reported 10 months old at intake so a birthdate of 7/10/2015 was assumed

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.  Most of our dogs are at our farm in Pacolet, South Carolina.  

To apply, please visit our webpage at 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.

Thank you for considering CPR.
