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.

Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC

Adoption Fee: $200
Fence needed? No -he'll need to relearn leash skills but once he does he'll walk with his head high
What kind of home would be best for me? Because of his back issues, Prince would not be a good walking companion (unless you've got a stroller so he can around ride in style although he would enjoy a block or two to keep his muscles in shape. He romps and plays with his buddies here but he also can stop and rest whenever he wants. When the weather is rainy, you can tell he's much more subdued. Since starting his pain medications, he's started being much more playful with the other dogs. We think most kids would be too rough for him so we are thinking adult only or teenagers and up for this tiny tyke.
What is my personality like? Laid back, easy going and lots of couch time. Prince would be great with another dog or on his own. He can entertain himself or be buddies. He's well crate trained although once in his crate he will growl at dogs on each side of him if he has food or treats. If no food or treats he's just fine. I think if you have another dog, feed them several feet apart (you should be doing this anyway) and no free feeding please.
How I act when I first meet new people: Curious and friendly. He won't be the first one to come meet you but he won't be the last.
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 3/23/2013
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 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.
