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? Dale was originally found as a stray in North Carolina and taken to a local shelter. He was adopted out, but returned a few days later for reportedly not getting along with the other dog of the house. Therefore, we feel that Dale most likely would fit best in an only dog home. Dale is not outright aggressive with other dogs, but it seems that he was never taught proper dog socialization and he tends to be too invasive and gets on other dogs nerves.
What is my personality like? Dale is a little timid at first, but once he realizes that you are not going to cause him harm he is loving and a total sweetheart. Dale has a very inquisitive nature and likes to investigate and explore his surroundings. He also enjoys his relaxation time and likes to be held and given belly rubs. Dale has a very well balanced personality, not too clingy and yet not too independent, just the right amount of both.
How I act when I first meet new people: Dale can be a little shy at the first meet but warms up quickly.
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: per owner between 2 and 3 years so we've guestimated a birthdate of 3.22.2014
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.
