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. 

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

Just a big goofy boy!

Date into Rescue:  6/7/2017


Reason for being in rescue: nc shelter, stray
Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Special Needs? none noted
Weight:  38.2 lbs
Height:  Estimated 16"-17"

Adoption Fee: $200

Fence needed? Yes, I have lots of energy and need to run!

What kind of home would be best for me? I am looking for a home with a fenced yard that I can run and play in or maybe someone who likes to go on long walks.  I would like a family that will throw a toy, cuddle with me and give a soft place to sleep when all the fun is over. 

What is my personality like?  My name is Rocket, I was found a stray somewhere in North Carolina. How can anyone loose such a sweet, goofy boy like me? Who knows! Anyways, I am looking forward to my forever future home. When it comes to my personality, I am a big GOOFBALL! I love to have everyone in the room smiling. I have energy but can be quite and calm also. I do know how to sit but only when you have a tasty treat. I need work with leash walking because I love to see everything all at once. Kids can be my best friend if they would like a high energy guy like me, also I enjoy the company of other dogs who like to play. I see the world as an adventure I have to yet to discover. 

How do I act when I first meet new people? I love everyone.

More tips and tidbits:  I like toys! I also ride very well in the car and enjoy curling up at your feet.

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: est birthdate 6/7/2014

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 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.
