My Story

Date into Rescue: 1/20/2023

Reason for being in rescue: Luke was surrendered by his owners to a shelter. Carolina Poodle Rescue pulled him from the shelter.

Special Needs: Luke is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. On 2/14/23 Luke had a major dental with 9 extractions. On 02/23/23 he had several perenial growths removed. 

What kind of home would be best for me: Luke is a happy, well-mannered gentleman looking for his retirement home. At 13 years old, he has matured beyond puppy behaviors and would prefer a more quiet home and environment. Luke LOVES people. He is good with other dogs, can could happily live with a similarly sized dog that is calm, but what he really wants is his person. We are looking for a home where someone is home during the day (retired, work from home, home schooled, etc.). Luke is looking for a lap.

What is my personality like: Luke is a 13 year old mini poodle who was brought to CPR mid-January as an owner release. Luke is a very spunky boy given his old age. This boy loves to be around his humans and nothing makes him happier than receiving all of the attention. Luke is good with other dogs, but does prefer humans as they give him a special type of love that other doggy friends can’t amount to.

Luke is a very gentle sweetheart, and shows no aggression, weariness, or shyness to new people, and also loves car rides. Luke would be good as an only dog where his humans can cater to only him, or another older, small dog companion for company would benefit him as well. Although he does like to explore new surroundings, he is totally okay with a set routine and would love to curl up on a comfy couch next to his favorite people.

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

Tips and Tidbits: Luke's shelter paperwork states that he is 13 years old, and his overall condition supports this. We celebrate his birthday as 1/19/2010.

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.

Thank you for considering CPR!
