A word about adopting a rescued dog:

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.  We are pleased to announce that we are now working with Hunt Valley Animal Hospital - www.huntvalleyanimalhospital.com - a state of the art facility with a group practice located in Hunt Valley, Maryland.  We can make no health guarantees beyond what the vet 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.

 The current news in Poodle Rescue is that there are very few Standard Poodles in Rescue across the country. This is very good news for Poodles and very sad news for adopters.  There are little Poodles available, mostly middle-aged males, mostly light colored.  We are asking applicants to please be patient and check in with us from time to time.  We keep applications on file unless someone tells us that they have found a dog.  As always, thank you for considering Rescue.

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

Especially since there are so few Standard Poodles in Rescue,

we believe that everyone who wants one and can care for one should have a Poodle!
