Meet Cheerio

Ready to roll into the next chapter of my life! Cheerio here! I'm a 7 year old, 17 pound miniature female poodle with a heart full of hope and a spirit ready to roll into the life I truly deserve. My journey began in a puppy mill, where I spent 7 long years in a cage, having litter after litter with very little human contact and no love. Now, I'm slowly progressing towards accepting affection and the loving touch of someone safe. I'm learning to let you touch me without cowering, but I still get scared when I see a leash and try to retreat to my crate. It is important to know that I will need a family who is patient and unconditionally loving as I learn lots of new things at my own pace. A quiet home without a lot of noise and activity would be preferred, no young children in the household would be best for me. I would also prefer to be your one and only pet, so I can have all your love and devotion. Your patience will be rewarded ten-fold with a wonderful and sweet companion.

Despite my past, I have a big heart and a laid-back nature. All I need is a safe, loving home with a fenced yard where I can finally come out of my shell and be free. If you're patient and kind, I promise to blossom into the loyal and loving companion you’ve been looking for.

*Remember, dogs are pack animals. Because of this, Rescue One does not adopt to outdoor-only homes. Pets are family and are not disposable. Please make sure that you are 100% committed to a pet before considering adding one to your home.

We are a foster-based organization, and we need more fosters to help us save more animals! If you’re interested in saving lives just like the one you’re reading about, fill out a foster app here. To foster dogs:
