Posted Breed: Brussels Griffon (short coat). Little dog, Big personality! Date into Rescue: 04/27/2015 Reason for being in rescue: We rescued Whiskers from our local shelter Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Weight: Est 8 lbs Height: Est 11" Adoption Fee: $125 What's my story? It's quite a story. On 4/19/2013 a cute little dog was taken to the local shelter after being found by police. No microchip was found and no owner came forward so the people at the shelter started looking for a home .On 5/28/2013 they found that home with a lady named Elizabeth. It could have happened anywhere in the Carolina's, right? Sure it could - but Whiskers was found running at large - in Oregon. That's a far piece from South Carolina. Two years later, our Whiskers is once again picked up running at large. This time, a scan of his little body found a microchip implanted by the Oregon shelter he was adopted from. The chip was registered but attempts to contact the owner have gone unanswered. The phone # on record rings fast busy and the email's are ignored. After working with our new partner in Oregon on this, we've all agreed that it's best to find Whiskers a good home right here. What is my personality like? Whiskers has some behavioral issues, and a home without children is a must. He will show you his teeth, growl and snap over many things. He is a big resource guarder. He will guard his crate, his food, his toys, his treats, his friends and most importantly his human. Whiskers can be quite temperamental, possibly an indication of a bad past. He is in love with one of CPR's employees and does great with her. She can handle him, get him out of the crate, etc. Even with her, however, he will growl and guard treats. He also does not like his faced to be touch. On the positive side, he is a real cuddle bug. .He knows how to gives hugs and loves to show you. He will lay his little head on your shoulder to let you know he is there and that he loves you. Whiskers is very playful and loves to play with other dogs his size. Ideally, finding a trainer would be best. He seems to like women more than men and would thrive best in a home with someone that lives completely alone. He has been cat tested and was fine with the cat. Age: est birthday 04/19/2011 Please understand that these are rescued dogs, and sometimes their ages are only a guess. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture, and not to discriminate against older dogs. You never know which dog will steal your heart when you meet them! How I act when I first meet new people: Scared Please note - we do not ship dogs. If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip. To apply, please visit our webpage at www.carolinapoodlerescue.org and visit the tab on the left that directions you to the online application. Please note that 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, color, age, etc. Others here may be a better fit for you. It is very difficult to get to know a living animal from a picture and a short description. Since we are constantly getting in new dogs, this may be a dog not in our listings yet. We want you to be very happy with your new companion and will make suggestions based on what you tell us about you. You can also read our adoption tips page for hints and helps on adopting a rescued dog. http://www.carolinapoodlerescue.org/AdoptionTips.shtml or for general information on Carolina Poodle Rescue, please visit our FAQs - http://www.carolinapoodlerescue.org/FAQGeneral.shtml If you are interested in providing a home for me, please complete our Adoption Application.

More About Brussels Griffon Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

We'll add you to our mailing list. thanks the CPR Adoption team Give me effort, and I will give you so much more. Date into Rescue: 1/26/2017 Reason for being in rescue: Owner surrender, Owner can't care for. Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Special Needs? none noted Weight: 57 lbs Height: Estimated 10" at the shoulder. Adoption Fee: $200 Fence needed? A fence would be ideal until leash trained. What kind of home would be best for me? Hank needs a kind, low-key and patient home that does not mind working with him. What is my personality like? Update 7/6/2017: Hank's story is more like a song. His past is rocky which is why he is so unsure of new people, but boy does this dog have potential. Hank has been with us for 6 months and it's so hard to believe that the terrified dog hiding in the back of his pen is now this bright vibrant lap dog. We have put real dedication in this guy and it surely shows. This insecure, troubled soul has turn into a glorified toy hoarder and a huge baby that loves to give kisses. All he really wants is just to be a families dog.. Not a yard ornament, not something to look at when you are bored.. but a real part of your family. Mind you, Hank is still apprehensive of new people, but he has shown us if you are willing to try with him.. he will most definitely try with you. Winning him over just takes a little time and his favorite snack of course.. cheese puffs! He still needs leash work, we think it would be successful with time and a front walking harness. 3/8/2017 Hank came to the rescue from a very under-socialized environment. He is still trying to figure out what being someone's pet really is. Hank still needs work, but he is the more social out of his siblings. He hates leashes and does not understand why he has to have one on in order to walk outside.. He kind of just sits down and does not move but he has gotten better since he has been here. Hank is learning how to sit, and loves meaty treats! He does not care about cats. Once he is used to you he does give affection and loves giving little kisses. How I act when I first meet new people: Weary of new people, it takes a little time but then he is basically a lap dog. 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. My age: Estimated birth date 10/1/2014 Please note - we do not ship dogs. If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip. Most of our dogs are at our farm in Pacolet, South Carolina.

Date into Rescue: 12/3/2016 Reason for being in rescue: Found as stray after hurricane Mathew, Horry County Shelter. Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Special Needs? Chewbacca is people selective and needs someone that can work with his issues! Weight: Estimated 50-60 lbs Height: Estimated 20" at the shoulder. Adoption Fee: $399 Fence needed? Yes, but also should be leashed walked at first. Chewbacca is nervous in new situations. What kind of home would be best for me? An only dog home, must have patience, He is also Male selective. What is my personality like? Chewbacca was found as a stray after Hurricane Mathew. When he first arrived, he was terrified and shut down.. but since then he has came great strides into the dog he is now. He always wants to be on the go and loves to have things that keep him busy, outside of his crate he is back and forth between doors just itching to do something! He does need some leash work, once his nose is to the ground he gets carried away and pulls. He has sat for a treat before, but tends to get distracted sometimes. Chewbacca is nervous in new situations and may growl and try to snap/bite but after he knows he is okay he loves to have attention and his back scratched.. but only if you can keep his curious mind still long enough! (It can be hard to get a read on Chewbacca because he is people selective! Some people he is perfectly okay with and while others, not so much. He needs a dominant and patient owner that can help him work through his issues.) Caregiver update 6/29/17: "If Chewy likes you, he likes you. If he doesn't, he will let you know that. He is not the overly affectionate type of dog. When he's comfortable enough, he will let his guard down and let you love on him. Showing too much love back doesn't seem to be his thing. Playing hard to get? Maybe! He did pretty good on leash; not too much pulling. He enjoyed his time in the big field where he got to explore all the new smells and see all the new sights. He listens well and so far has adjusted well here at the rescue. He needs a patient owner that will allow Chewbacca to be himself and get fully comfortable. He doesn't seem interested in toys, but can sit on command. He's a catch for sure, just need to find the lucky owners who will realize it." How I act when I first meet new people: Cautious, and may snap/bite out of fear. you have to take it easy once I warm up I am fine. 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.

No What kind of home would be best for me? An adult only home, as we have seen him resource guard a few times, Lollipup Jack needs a strong leader in his home to correct his attitude at times with resource guarding. What is my personality like? Overall, Lollipup Jack is a very sweet guy. He is friendly and happy, and gets along well with other dogs. He will sometimes go into his crate and growl if you try to grab him. He likes his own space! Once he is out of the crate he is very friendly and loving. He will guard the crate. Jack gets along really well with other dogs and loves to play. He is crate trained and overall has good manners. He will make an excellent addition to someone who is confident and a good trainer. You need to understand resource guarding and how to redirect his behavior to the positive. Update 2/16/2017 notes from caregiver.- "Lollipup Jack! First with the bad habits. He's crate aggressive. So crate aggressive he gets mad when I crate his cottage mates. Inside the trailer he's more uptight and aggravates other dogs in their face. Constantly barking at them when he's wound up. But outside he does MUCH better. He let me walk him. But he pulls a good bit. He's such the cuddle bug and a playful nipper. He played with a toy with me for a little while. He will sit and laid down a few times. He would probably do his absolute best as an only dog. And if he has any siblings they need to be patient. He barked at Salem the cat a lot. No kids. He's a big kisser! And loves to tickle your nose with his poofy hair." 7/6/2017: All Jack is, is a huge love bug with a not so good reputation. He is very loving but he is also head strong. Even though he has his own behavioral issues, that does not mean he cannot be loved. He just needs a stern and patient leader to help him over come his obstacles. 7❤ How I act when I first meet new people: Friendly House trained?

Sophie was one of many dogs seized from a hoarder in Abbeville, SC. Many of the dogs were terrified and under socialized with humans and have taken a long time to warm up to our caregivers. Sophie has to yet come around and be fully comfortable with human touch. Sophie will need a quiet low key home with an experienced patient adopter that understands that it will take time for her to warm up and be comfortable. What is my personality like? Sophie is an active girl that loves to go outside and play with her many friends. She would probably do best in a home with another chihuahua or small dog to learn from and help build her confidence. Sophie is a very fearful dog and almost feral dog. Sophie needs someone that understands that it is going to take time and work for her to become socialized around people. Sophie needs someone with a lot of patience, a gentle touch, and someone that is up for the challenge. Sophie is crate trained and runs right into her crate, which is great getting her to vet visits and where she needs to go. She really needs help learning she can trust humans.. and with many, many dogs here there isn't enough time to sit with this sweet girl and get her used to the human touch. How I act when I first meet new people: Sophie is scared of new people and runs from them. House trained?

Weight: 35 pounds Height: est 10" at the shoulder Adoption Fee: $ 125 Fence needed? no What kind of home would be best for me? Wally is looking for a home with a dog savvy adopter that will be a strong pack leader. He is not a good match for a first time dog owner. Wally is the type of dog that you have to show him you are in charge and that you aren't going to put up with any shenanigans. Once you have earned his respect as pack leader he is the most loyal and lovable companion you could ask for. He is bonded to one of our caregivers and she can do anything she wants with him. Wally prefers to have all the love and attention all to himself and would do best in a home as the only dog. What is my personality like? In the beginning, Wally was a little difficult and headstrong, but now he that he is comfortable and used to the routine he is much more agreeable and obedient. Wally is very eager to please and responds well to verbal correction. He already knows how to sit and is learning how to wait at thresholds (doors, gates, etc). He knows the wait command but if you don't make him do it he will try to sneak on in the door. Wally doesn't like being outside and prefers to just go out to use the potty and come right back in. He would make a great lap dog as he loves to cuddle and spend time with his person. Wally earned the nickname Wally Walrus because he resembles a walrus and always rolls over for a belly rub. How I act when I first meet new people: Wally is a little apprehensive of new people, but warms up quickly. 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. My age: 4 years old Please note - we do not ship dogs. If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip. Most of our dogs are at our farm in Pacolet, South Carolina.

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, color, age, etc. Others here may be a better fit for you. It is very difficult to get to know a living animal from a picture and a short description. Since we are constantly getting in new dogs, this may be a dog not in our listings yet.

Keegan needs to be fed a grain free diet to help maintain his healthy, shiny coat. He came to CPR with chronic ear infections and heartworms and both have been resolved.

Date into Rescue: 1/26/2017 Reason for being in rescue: 1/26/2017 Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Special Needs? none noted Weight: 38.8 lbs Height: Estimated 8.5" at the shoulder. Adoption Fee: $200 Fence needed? Fence is recommended until she is leash trained. What kind of home would be best for me? Baby girl needs a home that does not mind working with a under socialized dog. What is my personality like? 3/6/2017-June came to the rescue with her siblings and a few puppies. Her past living conditions has made her weary of new people, and under-socialized. She has no idea what it is like to completely be someone's "loved pet". June needs work, and I mean a lot of work with being socialized. She quickly attaches herself to people she is familiar with. She needs leash work, but I have found a front walking harness helps the most. Although she is still weary of new people, she has came a good bit from when she first got here. She allows certain caregivers to love on her and she showers them with kisses. June has the potential to be a great, completely loyal dog with the right patient person. June has been cat tested and does not mind them. She is also okay with other dogs as long as they are not over-barring and do not scare her. If you open up your heart to her, she will gladly walk in.. 4 paws and all! Notes from caregiver 2/16/2017 " I couldn't for the life of me get her to stay still. I've been delaying posting my description on her but spending time with her every time I'm asked to do it in hopes she's getting better and she is, just extremely slow. She has no desire to have a lead put around her and no desire to walk on it after you spend however long to put it on her. She's just very anxious and scared but who could blame her, seeing as where she had come to us from. She does indeed want you to touch her and her anxieties about it takes over after you do touch her or show her that you would love to give her love. She doesn't like to go in her crate as she's not use to one. She also doesn't know any basic commands and the sound of a car door terrified her so I didn't want to work her up more and actually put her in the car to see what she would do as I wouldn't want anyone to do that to me. She loves to be brushed, we've spent some time getting her use to that to understand it's not scary. She's very sweet and loves to bark but I think it's just out of the love that she has for hank and jolene." ❤ How I act when I first meet new people: Weary, hand shy but wants to be loved.

Breed: Terrier/Basset Hound Gender: Male Adoption Fee: $200 Date into Rescue: 2/28/2015 Reason for being in rescue: Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Special Needs? Yes, see description Weight: Est 43lb Height: Est 17" at the shoulder What is my personality like? Strong willed, goofy, intelligent, energetic Who I am seeking: Oscar needs someone who is very experienced with head-strong dogs. He must have a strong "pack leader," otherwise he will run over you. He needs an adult only home. Oscar can be a very, very sweet dog. He likes to show affection and to get attention - when he wants it. He has bitten and broken the skin on one occasion since his time here with us. What we have found is that he does best with people that he knows and trust, versus complete strangers. Oscar needs a strong leader who can teach him some manners and work with him. He loves to play and run out in the field. Oscar has a lot of energy and needs someone who is able to exercise him. He shows signs of resource guarding - he will act ugly in his crate sometimes and over treats. We definitely think his behavior could be modified with some training. At this time we believe he would thrive best in a home where he is the only pet. He has not made many canine friends in his time here - mainly due to his dominant personality. With some time and patience, Oscar could be an excellent dog. He needs an adult only home. Oscar was heartworm positive when we got him. He has finished full treatment and is ready for a home. Update 3/31/2016 Oscar needs lots of patience for the right home. He does not like new people but once he warms up to you he's as sweet as can be! He loves to run and give kisses. He will jump fences..so he definaltey could use some training. If anyone is interested in this goofy boy they should come spend one on one time at the farm with him until Oscar is comfortable with the new person. Age: We are estimating him at 5 but honestly the longer he's with us the younger he acts. Please understand that these are rescued dogs, and sometimes their ages are only a guess. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture, and not to discriminate against older dogs. You never know which dog will steal your heart when you meet them! How I act when I first meet new people: VERY weary about new people. He will bark and growl in his run until he gets to know you. Please note - we do not ship dogs.
