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.

What kind of home would be best for me? Toad is a happy senior boy looking for his retirement home. He is full of personality and eager to give love. Toad would be happy as the only dog or living with another mature dog. He is indifferent to cats. Toad's ideal home has someone home during the day, though this is not a requirement. Toad is vision impaired.
What is my personality like? Toad is a very spunky senior boy. He gets very excited when he hears food and will bark until the food is served. His favorite pastimes are laying in the sun and snuggling in a warm, cuddly bed with his senior friends. Toad likes human attention, but isn't too fond of having his head petted. He will lean his head away from your hand.
Toad is vision impaired. Sudden movements startle him and he will jump. He is very laid back and loves to be carried around. He has always lived with at least one other dog, but would be happy as your one and only. He is indifferent to cats.
Toad is ready for his forever home!
How do I act when I first meet new people? Friendly
Other tips and tidbits: Toad's estimated birthday is 07/29/2007
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.
