Sookie was surrendered by her owners to a NC shelter. Carolina Poodle Rescue pulled her from the shelter. She is adored by every caregiver that has been with her at the farm. She looks at you with the big, brown, soulful eyes that beg for someone to return her love. She is easy going and quiet. Sookie will seek you out and sit as close as possible. Her caregiver reports that she is well mannered, walks well on a leash, never messes her crate, and will even play a gentle game of fetch, at Sookie speed of course. She enjoys hugs and will give a kiss or two. If you were to imagine the perfect dog to warm a home, love children and other pets and to especially love you, it would be Sookie.

In November of 2020, it was found that Sookie's preexisting mammary tumors had metastasized to her lungs. This was a terminal diagnosis. As of 6/8/21, radiographs showed that Sookie has advanced metastatic lung disease. She is considered hospice. She is currently happy and eating and drinking but we know that every single day is a gift. Sookie is living her very best life in a loving foster home.



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!  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.

I am looking for angels to sponsor me.  I love my sponsors!  TOBY D
