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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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? First and foremost please understand that this princess wants to rule her kingdom alone. Angel is not a fan of other dogs at the moment. She is wonderful with people. She is warm, loving, giving and affectionate. But other dogs she has no use for.
What is my personality like? Bubbly and active. Angel acts and looks like a dog closer to 3 or 4 than to her 8 yeas old. She has a beautiful confirmation and floats/walks like a standard poodle should. She is great in a car and very much enjoys long walks - until you come upon another dog. Then there is trouble. We're working with Angel on this but
How do I act when I first meet new people? Angel lives up to her name and is every bit the Angel with new people. She is happy, sweet and affectionate. Just don't bring another dog up.
More tips and tidbits: The following was an evaluation done by an experienced standard poodle owner who spent a weekend with Angel. I think she would do best where she is the only dog in the home. She has food/water bowl and toy aggression,guarding issues. Her current owners may not have been aware of this since she has been the only dog. She went after my standard poodle aggressively and I had to separate them a few times. She would often approach our dog growling but with a stern command she would back off and walk away.
I was told she does not do well with thunderstorms and lightening. We happened to have bad storms come through our area last Friday night. She was nervous,panting,restless and shaking. I stayed with her to cuddle her as much as she would let me and it did seem to help.
Angel is reactive on the leash when she sees other dogs where she will bark, growl and lunge at them. Other than that she is a joy to walk and loves to go for them. They use a harness for her. (CPR note - we plan to work with Angel with a gentle leader head halter.)
Yes she has some behavior issues but I think with a professional trainer, patience,time and attention with her new owners she will overcome them.
She loves her people and was told she is good with children. She loves to play with her toys with you or even by herself. She loves to play fetch with her toys, balls and will bring them right back to you. She understands "give" very well. Angel is an active standard,you would never think she was eight. If you are an active family that has a fenced backyard or likes to run, walk or go on hikes she's your girl!!!
She knows basic commands and will give paw for treats and she takes them nicely too. She loves to give kisses,receive body massages from you and loves her chin scratched. She will lean into and rub up against you like a cat. She is a very sweet loving girl,
She is a watchful standard inside and outside the home. Will bark to alert you if she sees someone outside or at the door.
She loves going in the car for a ride,jumps right in. Windows need to be rolled up enough so that she won't jump out.
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 12/30/2008
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.
