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 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.
Just browsing but interested in poodles and poodle mixes? Please drop a note to email@example.com with your name, address and phone # and email. We'll add you to our mailing list.

What kind of home would be best for me? A quiet home with a strong pack leader type personality would be best for Miyagi.
What is my personality like? Miyagi was found as a stray and picked up by a NC animal shelter. We do not know his past but we do know a few things about him as of now. Miyagi is a very quiet boy. You will not see him getting into shannanigans with the others or causing a ruckus. He is nervous in new situations with new people, but he will warm up with a routine. Miyagi is a sweet boy, when sitting in the floor he will slowly walk up to you and ask to be petted. Miyagi is not one to be in your lap 24/7 but instead minding his own business unless greeting him or when he is called. He walks great on a leash but does need basic command training. Miyagi loves toys, he will quietly sit in a chair all day and chew on any toy if you let him! He is insecure about taking toys form him, he gives you a look and a little growl but has never bitten anyone. If you think you can help him along his way, he would love to meet you.
How do I act when I first meet new people? Unsure but friendly.
More tips and tidbits: Miyagi is insecure when it comes to picking him up, or grabbing a toy from him. He will growl at you. He needs work with that and patience. Picking him up with a blanket around him helps.
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 4/6/2014.
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 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.
Thank you for considering CPR.
