A word about adopting a rescued dog. Plese read before applying:

Health questions: Dogs picked up as strays or turned in to shelters come with little or no health history. Every dog taken in to our rescue is seen and evaluated by a vet before being made available for adoption. All dogs are made current on vaccinations and tested for Lyme Disease and heartworms.  They are spayed or neutered.  We can make no health guarantees beyond what a veterinarian is able to find on physical examination.  We endeavor to disclose all health information that is available to adopters.  Owner-surrendered dogs come with as much health history as is available and all health history on these dogs is revealed to adopters. 

 FeesWe ask for adoption donations on every dog we place with no exceptions.  Fees may be reduced for geriatric or special needs dogs. 100% of the fees collected for our dogs go to pay the vet bills of the dogs to help get them into loving homes. 

 Children: Our rule of thumb when placing rescued dogs in homes with small children is to err on the side of extreme caution.  We prefer not to place a small Poodle (Toy or Mini) in a home with small children.  We prefer not to place a Standard Poodle in a home with children under the age of 6. We will accept and review applications and can make decisions based on home visits with the child or children present.

 Fences : Our preference is to place a rescued dog in a home with a fully fenced yard; however our goal is to place dogs in homes. We will consider each circumstance with the best interest of the people and the dogs uppermost in mind. 






 Beau was surrendered by to Rescue his neglectful ower. Once we whacked off his filthy matted coat, he was found to have dry eye and has responded beautifully to treatment. He will most likely require (inexpensive) eye medication for the rest of his life. He is neutered, current on all vaccinations, HW negative, microchipped. He is a happy boy, but will need time, patience and love in his new home.  Inquiries welcome. Adoption fee $450.



Finley is a young guy surrendered by his family bacause he got too big and a bit too pushy for them. He is neutered, current on all vaccines, HW negative. He is housetrained and knows some basic obedience. He would do best in a home with a fenced yard and an owner who has experience with smart Standard Poodles.

Inquiries welcome. Adoption fee $500 


(Un)"Lucky" young doodle, possibly a 'miniature' goldendoodle -  given up to the local shelter. Fully vetted and microchipped. Crate training going well. Very rambunctious indoors -  fenced yard play helps settle him down. Can be pushy with other dogs. Does have a resource guarding issue so not a first-timers dog.

Inquiries welcome. Adoption fee $500



Dora was surrendered from a puppy mill. She is coming along well and although quite wary and shy, she wags her tail when she sees us.  She has permitted us to start taking off some of the dreadfully matted hair from around her feet and from her pretty face. She is VERY sweet. She will be vetted soon. We estimate her to be between 3 and 5 years of age.

Inquiries welcome. Adoption fee $500



Jeffie is a young Goldendoodle. He came out of a shelter in PA. He has been neutered, is current on vaccines, HW negative. He was very good for grooming. Jeffie has resource guarding issues that we are working through.

Jeffie update - Jeffie has done well with one on one training. He will require a home with a fenced yard and with people who understand his guarding issue and could continue some training. Adopters local to Baltimore or Carroll County preferred. 

Inquiries welcome. Adoption fee $500

 We will refer interested applicants to reputable breeders of health tested dogs if they would like a puppy. 

We believe that everyone who wants one, and can care for one, should have a Poodle, but we recognize that Rescued dogs may not be right for everyone.

 Please do not ask us about mixed breed puppies. We will only refer people to breeders of purebred Poodles from health-tested parents.

We prefer to have applications in advance so that when we take in dogs from owners or shelters, we can place them in homes as soon as possible. 

Thanks for considering Rescue!!
