My story

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 applications@carolinapoodlerescue.org with your name, address and phone # and email.  We'll add you to our mailing list. thanks the CPR Adoption team

 

Date into Rescue: 4/28/2021 Reason for being in rescue: Ira was surrendered by his owners to a local shelter. Carolina Poodle Rescue pulled him from the shelter. Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Special Needs? Ira arrived at the animal shelter heartworm positive. He was treated for heartworms at the shelter. He is neutered and up to date on vaccines. Weight: 15 lbs Height: 12 in Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Adoption Fee: $200

Fence needed? Absolutely yes

What kind of home would be best for me? Ira is a project. He is not for a first time adopter or even for a family that has never rescued. Ira's life before rescue involved little to no human contact and he's still learning that humans are okay. Our ideal home for Ira is with an experienced rescuer that knows and loves the chihuahua breed. No children and no cats in the home for this boy. Ira can live with other dogs of all sizes. When you take Ira home, it will likely be weeks before you will be able to touch him. He will go home on a trailing leash. 

What is my personality like? Ira is the true definition of a work in progress. He is looking for a home willing to rehabilitate him and truly show him how to be a dog. He does not have fond memories of humans and is slowly learning how to trust them. He loves food and treats and are very motivated by them.

Ira's home needs another small or large dog to teach him how to trust humans and be a normal dog. Ira tends to be more comfortable with women and warms up to them faster. He is selective about who he likes, and this is particularly true with men.

Ira is truly a special boy, he needs his human to understand that he is not a normal dog and is not comfortable with being held or picked up just yet. His perfect home will have plenty of time to be at home and aid in him and his rehabilitation.

How do I act when I first meet new people? Timid and stand-offish

Other tips and tidbits: Ira's owners stated he was 6 years old at the time of surrender to the shelter. We celebrate his birthday as 4/28/2015.

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.

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.
