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, Ana is timid in some ways and badly undersocialized. A fence is a must to give her a safe place to run and play with her human friend.
What kind of home would be best for me? Ana needs a home that is laid back and quiet, and that has a good deal of understanding of canine personality and how to shape behaviors in an older dog. Ana was badly under socialized all her life and so does not trust easily. She has also recently exhibited resource guarding and has bitten several of our caregivers hard enough to draw blood. We've moved her to a quieter area but are watching her carefully.
What is my personality like? Ana came from a quiet and reserved home where it was just her and her owner. She is very timid and shy, she is not one to run up to you and tackle you with hugs but will most likely stay in a corner. Ana needs confidence and patience and a great deal of understanding of canine behavior. We may try her on prozac to alievate her fears.
Ana does not like walking on a leash but only out of fear of going somewhere she is not familiar with. She has the potential to be a very sweet girl given the opportunity.
Ana has bit a few of the caregivers here, mostly out of fear but never badly enough to need stitches.. please be mindful of that if you are interested in adopting her.
How I act when I first meet new people: Timid and that timidity can manifest in fear aggression with some 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: Birth date 6/16/2008
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.
