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.

What kind of home would be best for me? I would love a controlled and very low traffic home without many visitors at all - if any. Isn't just me and you all we need? Visitors make me nervous - but out and about in the world, I want to go and do and go and do. I would even do great with someone who loves to run everyday and wear me out with exercise because I love attention and love to please my people. I also love and love and love to chase a ball. Or bubbles. I really love to chase bubbles.
What is my personality like? I am very smart and will need someone to continue working with me on my many cues that I know and love. I love to please my person and will work for treats. I know a cute little game called "Hide and Seek" and love to play it with my humans. I also love to look for things that my human hides.
I would be great at agility and even nose work training. I am very eager to please. I didn't get along good with my fur sister but everybody who knows dogs knows brothers and sisters should split up and not be in the same home. We competed for attention and I didn't know when to stop. I would love to be someone's main man and only child, so I wouldn't have to share my family with anyone. I am a bold and needy boy when it comes to attention and that means I want all of your attention. If you have a huge yard to run and play and also a lot of attention, time, and energy than I am your guy! I would be happy with two people who are stable, long term partners but I don't want a steady stream of boyfriends and girlfriends coming in, okay?
How I act when I first meet new people: I am very reserved and cautious when I first meet new people if I am on my home turf. After that I do bond quickly and you get to see my funny and goofy personality that I have if you'll wait out my checking you out period and if we're properly introduced by my main person. If we're out and about, I am happy to meet new friends. I"m off duty.
House trained? I am house trained and currently sleep in my crate at night. I am clean in my crate and I respond to "kennel" and "night night" when crating.

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.
