My Story

Date into Rescue: 4/5/2022

Reason for being in rescue: owner release

Special Needs: Tucker is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative.

What kind of home would be best for me: Tucker is a young, active dog who needs stability and patience. He has had a lot of change in his short life and needs time and experience and positive reinforcement training. Tucker is happiest with other dogs and requires another large, active dog for play and for modeling confident, positive dog behaviors. He has lived with children but did not appreciate the experience; given this we are seeking a home with no children. Tucker needs a low traffic, calm environment. He needs owners experienced with rescue and committed to positive reinforcement training.

What is my personality like: Tucker. If this dog could talk! At only 2 years old, rescue is Tucker's 5th stop. Purchased as a puppy, given up in a breakup, landed at a shelter, adopted by a well-intended family who got overwhelmed, and now Carolina Poodle Rescue. Tucker has lived a lot of life in his short 2 years. He's been the only baby and one of a pack of 5. He's lived inside and slept in the bed and been tied outside while his humans went to work. He's lived with children and without children. He has had a lot of change and needs stability.

Tucker is a beautiful young boy that has a very strong stranger danger alert system! He does not like for strangers to suddenly touch him. You have to take things slow with Tucker and proper introductions are key. Tucker is a boy with boundaries and will need positive reinforcement training.  He is highly treat motivated and is not picky about what kind of treats. He is gentle when he falls for you and boy does he fall hard. It takes Tucker time to get used to new people and new situations and will need a crate in the home to help him set boundaries. He is crate trained and does very good about keeping it clean.

Tucker needs routine and structure! He absolutely loves to play and does good with other dogs. He is a very confident boy and should have another dog in the home to help keep him entertained and to help show him the ropes. A well rounded, calm, and confident dog would be ideal for Tucker so he can learn to mimic their good behavior.

Tucker boy has a lot of love to give and is looking for a understanding and patient home

How do I act when I first meet new people: Tucker can be cautious meeting new people, but does warm up quickly. 

Tips and Tidbits: Tucker is estimated at 2 years old. We celebrate his birthday as 4/5/2020.

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.
