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.

Fence needed?  No although he enjoys playing outside in the grass and sunshine with his people.  Duff is too small to ever be left alone outside.  He is small enough to be picked up by a bird of prey and he is cute enough and friendly enough to be stolen.  

What kind of home would be best for me?  If Duff were picking his home, he would be in a home with a playful friendly dog to cuddle and play with.  He's crate trained but he's young and he can't be left alone, even with a buddy, all day.  Plan to come home at lunch if you work. We're not guaranteeing he can hold his pee all day during the day.  He would enjoy children. His primary caregiver has a 4 year old dog whisperer daughter who he loves to play with.  (Please note this is a very dog savvy child).  Duff enjoys being loved on but he can also hang with his canine buddy or even by himself if he's got a toy.  He would be good for a work at home person because he's a quiet dog here. 

What is my personality like?   When we first met Duff I honestly was concerned he would be with us for months.  Duff spent 10 days at our local shelter snarling and snapping at everyone but one worker who could handle him.  I brought him home and within 2 hours he was snuggling and giving kisses to his primary caregiver.  Over the last several weeks as we've handled his medical work (neuter, vaccines, etc) he's become friendlier and friendlier.  He did fine with a newcomer who met him last week.  We think he's ready for the world to meet him now.  

How do I act when I first meet new people?  He may bark a bit but he loves treats and he can be bought.  Bring Pupperoni . He's very treat motivated.  He also loves squeaky toys and stuffed animals that squeak.  

More tips and tidbits:  Duff is now neutered, up to date on vaccines and has tested heartworm negative. He is also microchipped. We plan to send him home with a belly band until he learns the routine in his new home.  We think he'll get that house training thing quickly.  He's bright and eager to learn.  We think he would enjoy training classes and learning new things.  

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 4/24/2013

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.
