My Story

Date into Rescue: 9/16/2020 original intake, adopted but returned in Jan of 2023 when her owner was put into hospice care.  

Reason for being in rescue: Clementine was found as a stray. Carolina Poodle Rescue pulled her from a local shelter. 

Special Needs: Clementine is a diabetic and is insulin dependent - she currently takes 10 units of insulin twice per day.  She is on a type called Novolin N 100 units/ml.  This is a human insulin and can be purchased from Petco pharmacy.  The cost for a 10 ml bottle is $219.  This work out to about $4.50 per day for her insulin.  Clementine had bilateral cherry eye repair in early September 2020. Her eyes must be kept clean and clear. On 9/18/20 she had a much-needed dental. Clementine does have flea allergies and must be on regular flea & tick preventatives for life.  

What kind of home would be best for me: Clementine is looking for a lap. She wants someone that is home during that day and has plenty of time to devote to her. She'd be happy as an only dog, or could live with another dog or cats. If you are a first time dog owner, Clementine would be a great first dog. If you're looking for your retirement companion, Clementine would be equally happy filling that void. The key is someone that is home with her or will take her where you go.

Clementine is given an insulin injection twice per day.  We give her insulin at 9 am and 9 pm each day.  As long as it is 12 hours apart, you can adjust this to match your schedule.  She can not miss a dose.  Unlike people, once dogs are insulin dependent they cannot get off insulin.  This will be for life . 

What is my personality like: Oh my darling, Clementine! Darling is a perfectly suiting world for this sweetheart of a miniature poodle. She is charming, affectionate, and easy to please. Clementine used to “moo” like a cow when she was here the first time but she has mellowed and is very quiet now.  

Clementine is everyone's princess. She just wants to be with her people. It is clear that she has been loved and that she's been in a home where someone was always home. Clementine does not like to be left and will let you know. She is crate trained and leash trained and enjoys riding in the car. She is good with other small dogs and with cats. Though we haven't tested her with children, we haven't met anyone that Clementine doesn't love instantly. Clementine would make a great dog for reading therapy, nursing home visits, etc.

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

Tips and Tidbits: Clementine was found as a stray so we have no history on her. Basde on her overall health and condition she is estimated at 11 years old. Clementine's estimated birthday is 8/26/2011 

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.
