My Story

Date into rescue: 2/24/2018

Reason for being in rescue? Sleepy was seized as part of a neglect case and taken to a shelter in GA. Carolina Poodle Rescue pulled Sleepy from the GA shelter.

Special Needs? skin issues, This dog is lightly heartworm positive (HW+). She will be sent home with a year supply of heartworm medication. She  is being treated with a method called the slow kill treatment. She takes a monthly Ivermectin based heartworm preventative and needs to be re-tested for heartworms every 6 months. Once she tests negative, then she can take any kind of heartworm preventative; she is not restricted to Ivermectin based only.

What kind of home would be best for me? Sleepy has never known what it is like to be a loved member of a family. Given this, she is shy with people. Sleepy needs a patient home with owners who will show her love and kindness to help her build confidence and trust. Sleepy has been raised as part of a pack and would be fine in a home with another dog. She could also be someone's one and only.

What is my personality like?

How do I act when I meet new people? Shy

Tips and Tidbits:

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.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. 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, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.

Thank you for considering CPR!
