My Story

Date into Rescue: 11/2/2020

Reason for being in rescue: Sookie was surrendered by her owners to a NC shelter. Carolina Poodle Rescue pulled her from the shelter.

Special Needs: 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. 

What kind of home would be best for me: Sookie is the kind of dog that adapts well to any loving environment that welcomes her. She could easily fit in with a family. She does well with other dogs and children over 10. She would be happy with an active retired couple or one that enjoys a more quiet life. Sookie is a hospice dog. We know that she has metastatic lung growths. We do not know how much time she has - it could be days or it could be weeks.  It is not months. Sookie would love to spend her final days in a quiet, loving home living out her bucket list.

What is my personality like: Sookie 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.

How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly but a bit reserved until comfortable. Sookie takes her time with all things.

Tips and Tidbits: Sookie's estimated birthday is 11/2/2012. This is purely an estimate.

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.
