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

What kind of home would be best for me? Spice's adopter must be kind, understanding, loving, have a tremendous amount of patience, and able to give a lot of positive reinforcement. Consistency is key for Spice to thrive and feel safe in her new home. A fenced in yard, 6ft minimum, plus supervision is required for Spice as she has jumped and climbed fences of all heights to get to her person. Her new home must be relatively calm and quiet as she can get overwhelmed easily. 

What is my personality like? Her name is Spice, and boy is she full of flavor! You might not think it at first, but just let her simmer a little and all that beautiful, wonderful flavor will slowly start to emerge. Spice came to the rescue as a terrified, shut-down breeder release with zero training or socialization. She has little confidence in herself, and second guesses whether her people here truly love her at times. She needs someone who will constantly reaffirm how much they love and care for her multiple times a day. However, Spice will pour all her love and energy all over you once she warms up. She plays hard, but loves even harder. Giving hugs, kisses and cuddles are some of her favorite past times. 

Spice has a heart of gold, and wants nothing more than to make her human proud. Positive reinforcement, and lots of treats of course, will be the keys to success in her training. She already expects treats after potty breaks here, so if you continue this routine at home you will be one step ahead on potty training. Obedience training would be highly beneficial for this bundle of energy. She is getting better with her manners, but still needs a lot of work. Spice is made of everything nice, just give her some time and watch it unfold!

Spice loves food and can be very vocal when she wants a snack. If left unattended she will counter surf to retrieve the food herself, so keeping food up is recommended. Spice could benefit from having a calm, patient and confident dog in the home to teach her how to "dog" since she was never allowed to be a regular pet. Spice is crate trained, but this should be kept at a minimum, as needed basis. She is a rambunctious ball of energy and needs to get her zoomies out. 

How do I act when I first meet new people? Spice is fearful around new people and environments. She needs space and patience to decompress. When she finally warms up, she will spread the love to all who will let her. With training and socialization, this behavior should start to dissipate and her "everything nice" personality will shine through from the first moment.

Other tips and tidbits: Spice is estimated at 8 years old. We celebrate her birthday as 8/8/2014.

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.
