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.

What is my personality like? Jackson came to CPR in 2012. He had some weird behavioral issues and one of our employees at the time took him on. Jackson was thriving wonderfully until recently. Unfortunately, his owner got a new job where he was working long hours, which meant Jackson was spending a lot of time in his crate. As we all know, doodles need exercise - and lots of it!
Overall, Jackson is a sweet, affectionate dog. He does have a dominate side to him, so he needs a very strong owner who has experience. He would do best as an only dog, as he does not get along with most. He does okay with submissive large female dogs only.
Jackson is also not a big fan of kids. He does great with strong adults. He is a happy and playful dog who loves to chase a tennis ball!
He has manners and is well trained but enforcing this takes a strong leader. Jackson knows sit and lay, he is house trained and crate trained.
Jackson recently spent one-on-one time with one of our caregivers who shared the following: "Jackson is full of energy and enjoyed fetching the ball. Listens to sit command very well. A little aggressive when taking treats but not too bad. Needs work walking on a leash. When inside he could not stop moving, was being playful and loving."
Update 7/13/2017: Jackson recently had a fatty like mass removed from his side and has recovered well. He is now back up for adoption and is looking for his right person! Jackson does however still have a habit of mounting certain people, but with the a stern voice- he knows to stop. Jackson has improved but would improve even more so if he could have one on one time with someone daily. At the end of the day; Jackson is just a huge puppy, and very energetic when let out of his run. He truly does not know his age. He enjoys running around in the field and picking up as many toys as his nose leads him to. Jackson does know his commands, and is very intelligent. If the right person would give him a chance, he would benefit greatly!
Who am I seeking? A very strong leader who has experience with dominant large dogs. A home where there are no other animals except him.
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.
