Unco was turned in to an animal shelter in North Carolina, after being adopted from the same shelter 3 years prior. No reason was given, just that she was aging and they couldn't keep her. Her foster family quickly nicknamed her Sweetie, because this girl is some kind of sweet. Her paperwork says she is 13 years old, but her energy is more of a 4 year old. She loves other dogs, is indifferent to cats, and is a complete people pleaser. Since moving to Dreamweaver farms, we have also learned that Unco has severe separation anxiety and needs to be near her person at all times.

Sweetie looks a bit messy now but wait til Sunday.  Sweetie is one of the dogs that will be groomed by professional groomers competing to bring out the best in their assigned rescue dog!  I can't wait to post the after pictures. 


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.
