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.

the CPR Adoption team
Date into Rescue: 9/14/2016
Reason for being in rescue: Chester and his siblings were found living under a house nearby. They had been born there - and three of them had been bit by snakes! The owner realized she needed help with the pups and relinquished them and the mother to CPR
Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Special Needs? Puppyhood!
Weight: We think full grown 40 ish lbs but this is a guess. Mom appears to be a purebed labrador retriever but a small and skinny one currently at about 35 lbs but she should be 50
Height: We think full grown about 24" at the shoulder
Adoption Fee: $200
Fence needed? at least 4 feet
What kind of home would be best for me? Our best case puppy home is one with another happy, gregarious dog in the home and a family that is home at least part of the day. Puppies need much social stimulation from dogs and people to grow up sane and happy dogs.
What is my personality like? Chester seems to be the most rambunctious one out of the bunch! When we wakes up he hits the ground running. He loves to explore and play while getting into everything that he can. He is a total sweetheart and loves to be the center of attention. Please note that he is a puppy and as he grows, his personality can change. In a loving home, he will only get better but I suspect this one will always be wide open - be ready for a lot of fun.
How I act when I first meet new people: Puppies love everyone.
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 birthdate is on or about 7/20/2016
PUPPY POLICY: ~~Thank you for considering adding a puppy to your family. Puppies can be a joyous experience but they can also be a tremendous amount of work. You need to be prepared for that work. Because our goal is to place each of our dogs in forever homes, we are especially cautious where we put puppies. Our ideal puppy adopters are: *experienced dog owners with a solid record of excellent vet care of their previous pets *be scheduled away from home for no more than 4 hours per day *and for those gone 4 hours per day have another canine companion in the home *be stay at home type of people (work at home, home schoolers, retired, etc) If you fit this criteria, please apply for this puppy. If you do not fit this criteria, we strongly encourage you to look at our adoptable adult dogs. The number one misconception that we hear routinely from new dog owners is that they want a puppy because they do not think they can handle correcting past bad behaviors or resolving baggage. Not every adoptable rescue dog carries such baggage. Many adult dogs are well bred, well trained dogs who have lost their families through no fault of their own. The second misconception we hear is that adult dogs can not bond with a new family. This again is not a true statement. Adult dogs are ready and eager to give you their love. In return, you get a family pet that is a known quantity, known size and shape and color and ready to start on the new adventure, their life with you. Lastly, training a puppy correctly is a tremendous commitment of time and energy. This is why we ask the puppy seeker have more time at home than the average working family. Puppies are gregarious and social creatures who crave attention and positive direction. You need the extra time to do it right.~~
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.
