Crumbly was found as a stray in TN and taken to a local shelter. At 15 years old, this senior boy is why Carolina Poodle Rescue has an SOS program. Crumbly is a feeble old gentleman who will live out his days in dignity as part of our SOS program.

Crumbly is a classic old poodle. He is mostly blind, hears very little, and spends most of his day sleeping. Crumbly has a heart murmor and is taking daily meds to help manage this. His hip joints and muscles are worn out, leaving him frail and slow moving. Crumbly loves to be held; it makes him feel safe. He has become a real cuddle buddy in his foster home. Crumbly has also learned what a belly rub is and he really likes those! He has a favorite blanket we put in his kennel and he likes one side of the blanket better than the other, and he will eventually get it turned over if you do not put it in there right. He is just a sweetheart.

At this stage in life, Crumbly is essentially in hospice care. He is in a foster home that is making him comfortable, and where he will live out his days.


Can’t have a dog of your own? Have a soft spot for old, sick or hard to place dogs? It only takes a $20 a month donation for me to be your virtual dog! I need at least 10 virtual adopters (sponsors) to help cover my monthly costs.  If I have medical challenges I need even more! r having to leave your home, you can have your very own online dog that will send you update emails, make Facebook posts, and be eternally grateful for your support!  Go to the donate link at the top of the page for instructions as to how to donate.

I love my Virtual Adopters! CINDY VW
