Anakin was found as a stray in rural North Carolina, and ended up in a shelter. Shelters are scary places for dogs, especially dogs that are mostly blind. Carolina's Poodle Rescue SOS program helps dog like Anakin who are young but special find a safe place to call home until their best forever home is found.

Anakin is mostly blind. He is sweet as can be, and loves a treat any way he can get it. He likes to sit on a lap and snuggle, and will dance back and forth when you put him in his crate. Anakin isn’t dog aggressive, and he could care less about the cat that was in the trailer with him. He just does him, and he always has a goofy look on his face.

Anakin would love a quiet home where he has a lap to snuggle into and a family that understands that his vision is very poor at best. Blind dogs live long, productive lives and are incredibly adaptive. Anakin has lots of love to give!


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! MISHELLE B, CHRISTA C, DENISE H, LORI JO M
