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 email@example.com with your name, address and phone # and email. We'll add you to our mailing list.

What kind of home would be best for me? Nicki would love a home where he can fetch tennis balls, sit in a lap, go for long walks. He also needs a home with an owner that has experience with stubborn dogs.
What is my personality like? Nicki is wonderful, sweet, happy boy confident boy. He loves to go for walks and fetch tennis balls. He gets along good with other dogs but seem to like to have the lap all to himself. He is treat motivated and will sit for food. He even doesn't mind a cat.
Update 7/20/2017: Nicki was adopted but then returned due to "bipolar behavior"- per the previous adopters. Nicki is strong willed.. but like many, strong willed normally comes with stubborn. He needs an experienced and dominant owner that also has patience and knows not to push Nicki's buttons. He does NOT like being picked up and will respond with teeth if he does not give permission to be picked up. He does let a few of our caregivers handle him; ones that he now trusts.
Now the good about Nicki- Underneath his tough guy attitude is a sweet, loving lap dog. He adores attention- including having his back scratched. He will try to do almost anything for a treat and he has learned how to sit on command. Tennis balls are his favorite toys and we love to watch him beg for us to finally throw the ball! Nicki would really flourish in the right home with a special understanding owner.
How I act when I first meet new people: Happy and sweet
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 8/22/2014
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. 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.
