My Story

Date into Rescue: 02/23/2020

Reason for being in rescue: Lovingly surrendered by owners

Special Needs: Jett was recently diagnosed with nuclear sclerosis and a mild heart murmur. All of his labs are in normal ranges and he is an active senior boy.

What kind of home would be best for me: Jett is a wonderful boy who needs a home with no young children. He is fine with other dogs and indifferent to cats. His ideal home is one where he can be the only dog. 

What is my personality like: Jet came to Carolina Poodle Rescue from a family that loves him very, very much. The family dynamic changed and now involves young children, and sadly Jett just didn't want to share his home and humans with young children. The decision to help Jett find a new family was difficult and painful and selfless. Jett has been very, very loved.

Jett's previous family shared lots of great details about him to ensure he can find his perfect new family. Here is what they said. Jett likes to take walks. He loves to lay outside in the sun, but cannot be trusted alone outside. He still enjoys chasing squirrels, birds, etc. and will leave the yard in pursuit if his yard isn't fenced and he is left alone. Jett enjoys going to the dog park and playing tug-of-war with soft toys. When it is time to rest, Jett wants to be where you are. He sleeps in the bed and wants to be as close to you as possible. If you have a soft blanket, it is even better!

Jett is okay in the car, but long car rides are not for him. While he has traveled the East Coast via car, these were not experiences he enjoyed. Jett can be sensitive to beeping noises. Fire alarms, door alarms, cell phone pings, etc. make him nervous. While he enjoys love and affection, he does not like people in his face. Interactions that are too close to his face make him nervous. So do children. 

Jett knows basic commands. He is good for baths, but does not enjoy having his nails trimmed. He is accustomed to routine and does well with routine he is familiar with. Jett is good with other dogs, but would be best as an only dog.

How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly

Tips and Tidbits:  Jett's estimated birthday is 09/25/2010

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.
