My Story

Date into Rescue: 2/6/2021

Reason for being in rescue: Terry was seized as part of a hoarder case in North Carolina. Carolina Poodle Rescue pulled him from the shelter that helped with the case.

Special Needs: Terry arrived in rescue with an itchy spot on his back. It was tested for any sort of parasite and the skin scrape came back negative. Terry is up to date on all vaccines. Given his size and age, he has is not neutered. Adopting Terry means it will be your responsibility to neuter him at your cost within 12 months.

What kind of home would be best for me? Thank you for carefully considering the addition of a puppy to your family. Puppies can be a joyous experience, but they can also be a tremendous amount of work. Since our goal is to place each of our dogs in forever homes, we are especially cautious with puppies. We like to stress 3 major things when considering a puppy vs. an adult dog: 1) many adult dogs are well bred, well trained dogs who find themselves in rescue through no fault of their own, 2) adult dogs are eager to share their love and bond with their new family, and 3) puppies will always require far more time, energy, and training than an adult dog. Our ideal puppy adopters are experienced dog owners with a solid record of excellent vet care of their previous pets, scheduled away from home for no more than 4 hours per day OR have another canine companion already in the home, stay at home type of people (work at home, home schoolers, retired, etc). Terry requires another active dog in the home for play and socialization.

What is my personality like: Terry is a whole lot of personality packed in a tiny little body. He is all things puppy - playful, energetic and mischievous. This little boy loves toys and loves to play with other dogs. He requires an active companion to teach him all the things a growing puppy needs to know.

Terry is small, but is full of life. He is not afraid of big dogs, and not afraid to play with big dogs. He is not potty trained, but is working on it. He is highly toy and food motivated - a winning combination for training any pup. Terry loves to be where the action is, but he must be watched. This tiny action figure won't think twice about jumping off a piece of furniture which could be dangerous. He is truly fearless. 

Terry loves to snuggle with dogs and humans alike. He is so much fun to be around. Terry needs structure, canine companionship, and lots of love to live his very best life.

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

Tips and Tidbits: Terry's estimated birthday is 11/21/2020. Terry was seized as part of a hoarding case. There were no records on the animals. This birthdate is an estimate based on his overall condition.

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.
