Kane was an owner surrender to the City of Columbia. Unfortunately, Kanes' past is nothing but a mystery to us. We can tell you, however, based on his personality that his past was not a happy one. Kane is overall a wonderful dog, but he will bite when he feels threatened or just when he feels like it. Usually his triggers are being picked up and or being told what to do! Kane does really great with one of our caregivers: she is able to pick him up, love on him, do anything she wants with him. He trusts her and doesn't give her any problems. Because of this, we think he could learn to trust someone else, in a home and do great with them, too! Kane gets along great with other animals.

Kane is seeking a very specific person or couple to adopt him. He is looking for someone with a lot of experience, preferably with behaviorally-challenged dogs. He is seeking a child-free, adult only home. Kane needs a family who is pretty low key, with very little visitors. Perhaps the most important component....he is looking for someone with lots of patients and time to spend on training.


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!  If I have medical challenges I need even more! The caregivers at Carolina Poodle Rescue will do the rest.  Just think, without ever 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.
