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

Fence needed? Yes

What kind of home would be best for me? Sam would make a great dog for a patient, gentle, kind-hearted soul. He was a stud dog for a breeder until the day he moved to the rescue, so he lacks training and socialization. It takes Sam awhile to open up to people; he's still on the fence with trusting them completely. However, he will latch onto a routine instantly, so he needs someone who can stick to a schedule. A self-assured, well trained dog that would enjoy playing with Sam in a fenced in yard, and teaching him the ropes on how to "dog" would be ideal.

What is my personality like? Sam is unsure of people, and can be fearful and shy in the beginning. Underneath it all though, he is a gentle soul that just wants to find his perfect person to share all of life's little moments together. Sam enjoys people watching, and observing his surroundings, before inserting himself into the activities. Patience is the key to unlocking the mystery that is Sam. Letting him interact on his terms instead of pushing him into things will help build his trust with you, and allow him to feel safe in his new environment.

Training and socialization are a must for this sweet guy. Lucky for you, Sam loves food and will do almost anything to get just a nibble. Positive reinforcements, plus treats, will help move his training right along. Speaking of food, if it's something you don't want him to eat, put it away. This guy has made counter surfing his number one hobby, and he's almost advanced to expert level with how fast and sneaky he is! Sam is a quiet fella, but when he gets hungry, or is demanding snacks, he becomes quite the vocalist. Sam is young, but he is super laid-back. Instead of running, he prefers prancing through the yard, and is sure to prance right into your heart too!

How do I act when I first meet new people? Sam is timid, and would rather sit and observe until he is comfortable. Let him come to you in his own time.

Other tips and tidbits: A crate for Sam is an absolute must in his new home. He does great when crated, and uses it as his safe space when he is overwhelmed or stressed. Don't worry, he will always let you know when it's time for him to go to his crate to decompress. Sam is estimated at 3.5 years old. We celebrate his birthday as 12/21/2018.

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.
