Thank you for your interest in a rescued dog. Our descriptions contain all that we know about this dog today. We'll update as more information is known.
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.
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 kind of home would be best for me? Carter would thrive best in a low key home with a patient adopter that will give him time to come around and get comfortable in his new home. He is a very timid dog and would fit best in an adult only home.
What is my personality like? Carter is a shy little wallflower. However given enough time, a gentle hand, and lots of love and affection and he will open up his little heart to the right person. He just likes to get to know people before he opens up to them. Once Carter is comfortable, he is a very loving and loyal companion. Carter gets along well with other dogs and having another small dog to show him the ropes and pass the time may help to boost his confidence. A dog like Carter would greatly benefit from lots of one on one time with his adopter and some confidence building training to help him become a more self assured dog.
How I act when I first meet new people: Carter is very shy and timid with new people.
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: est birthdate 6/1/2009
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.
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.
