In shelter Dog

Pacolet, SC, 29372
Pet name:
Jax of Anderson - A Special Project Boy
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 someones. 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. Well update as more information is known.

Are you looking to adopt within the next 30 days? If so please visit our webpage at and complete the application. Youll find it in the menu on the left hand side. Youll also find a total listing of all our dogs available.

Just browsing but interested in poodles and poodle mixes? Please drop a note to with your name, address and phone # and email. Well add you to our mailing list.

Adoption Fee: $1 - I am priceless

Fence needed? Yes without question. Jax may be small but he is a flight risk!

What kind of home would be best for me? Jax needs a home that gives him routine and stability! Jax would not thrive with children. He is already too unsure of humans and sometimes kids can be scary and overwhelming to a dog like Jax. Jax would require another stable and confident dog his size in the home, he needs a pack leader! Jax truly needs someone to adopt him and put in the patience to win his heart and show him life doesnt have to be so scary!

What is my personality like? Jax is shy and undersocialized but has proven that he can be touched, held and loved on. He has shown us that after his rough start to life, he can overcome his fear and eventually become a normal house pet. Jax is going to blossom in a home that gives him the love he so desperately wants.

Jax was part of a hoarding case. We were one of several rescue groups that pulled the dogs. After our first group came in, we got another email. EMS received a wellness check call on 3/25/21. Once on scene they dispatched for Animal Control. There were 50 chihuahuas on the property and their owner (an 85-year-old lady) was going to the hospital (release date unknown). Keep in mind these dogs have probably never seen anyone other than their owner before. They were scared to death and their world was being turned upside down. We thought once at the shelter when thing settled down maybe the dogs would too. A day or two later, everyone had been claimed by rescues.

A week or so goes by and we were contacted by a rescue group that pulled several of the chihuahuas. Their email read something along the lines of "Sorry but these guys are too much for us to handle." We understand completely!!! (We will always take our dogs back if there is an issue) But they cannot live in shelter forever! I would probably call them feral. I do think they have a chance. BUT!!! They need more time and help than we (the shelter) can offer them." Once we read that, we decided that giving the remaining 7 chihuahuas a safe place to learn about how good humans can be was what we needed to do. Jax is one of those dogs.

How do I act when I first meet new people? Shut down and unsure, Jax needs time to be shown that humans are a good thing.

Other tips and tidbits: The elderly owner who had this group of dogs did not give information to animal control. We had to guess. We estimate Jax to be about 4 when he was rescued. Weve given him a birthdate of 4/28/2017.

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 doesnt 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 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.
