At Carolina Poodle Rescue, we believe that all lives animals. Yes, we focus on poodles, poodle mixes, and other small breed dogs. But sometimes a "shedding variety poodle" as we affectionately call them touches our hearts and we know that we have to help.
Help is exactly what Sonny needed. He stood on the side of a road.. As car after car passed him by... How many people does it really take??? Only one.. Lucky for Sonny, one person did stop. She stopped and got him into a secure location while she dropped her other pup off and then went back for him. She cleaned him up and fed him and got him comfortable. And she reached out to Carolina Poodle Rescue. Today, Sonny is receiving the care he needs because one person finally stopped to help.
We estimate that Sonny is between 8-10 years old. He has heartworms. He has mange. His vision is very, very limited. But none of these will slow Sonny down. Sonny is a sweetheart whose personality is really coming to life with compassionate care and lots of love. He has 2 roommates in his new digs, and he really enjoys spending time with them. Today we get lots of tail wags from Sonny. Though he has no reason to trust, he does. He walks being guided by a leash very well. Sonny loves sunshine and snuggles and sleeping on the couch in his room.
On May 19th, Nate and I will be running to raise funds for Luna's Legacy Medical Fund. Like Sonny, Nate is a "shedding variety poodle". He was orphaned in Hurricane Irma and rescued by Carolina Poodle Rescue as part of a bigger effort. Nate is a very loving and outgoing boy. His favorite activity is giving hugs. Nate is running to raise money for his friends like Sonny that need medical care. He and I are running to ensure that Carolina Poodle Rescue never has to say no to a medical need for one of our dogs.
