Hello, I`m Maxx. I`m about 1 year old, about 14 pounds and probably a poodle/terrier mix of some sort.

You will find that I`m as cute as can be, full of love and bursting with energy. I love to run, jump and play, go for walks, eat, snuggle and give kisses. I need someone who is as active as I am, has a fenced yard so I can run and chase toys, has a sense of humor because I love to make you laugh, and will give me proper training because I am just a puppy after all.

I`m only one year old but my life has been rough. I`ve been in and out of different places and I got dumped on the street. But the nice people at Coastal Poodle Rescue found out that I had a problem and I`ve been diagnosed with diabetes insipidus. It`s related to water metabolism and not insulin so no shots. DI is due to the lack of a specific hormone which regulates my body's retention of water. While it is not curable, it is not life-threatening. I just need access to lots of water and someone to let me outside often so someone who is home most of the time would be the best place for me. The condition can be controlled with eye drops or pills. You and your vet can decide on what course of action would be best.

And remember, I may look like a little bandit but the only thing I`ll steal is your heart.

MAXX is currently being fostered in BREVARD county..

About Coastal Poodle Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Coastal Poodle Rescue was officially established on March 8, 2004 by a small group of dedicated volunteers who, combined, have decades of experience with statewide and local rescue efforts.
The number of abandoned and abused poodles in our local area was increasing at a disturbing rate. Therefore, we decided the best way to assist these animals was to form a regional rescue group.

We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. We are 100% volunteer-run, which means overhead costs are minimal and your donation is put to direct use for the good of the dogs. We do not receive government funds. We are entirely supported by charitable donations. We concentrate our activities in the eastern, coastal corridor of Florida from Duval to Dade County.

Our Adoption Process...

Our goal is to make wise and permanent placements for each poodle. Think about it: all of our dogs have been abandoned at least once in their lives.
Minimum donations are between $150 and $400, depending on the age and health of the dog, among other factors.
In most cases, this does not begin to cover the medical expenses incurred. All dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and tested for heartworms and intestinal parasites.

What to Know About Our Adoptions:


A donation to Coastal Poodle Rescue, Inc. is required to adopt a poodle.
Home visits and interviews help us determine the kind of dog that will best fit your home environment and lifestyle.
Filling out an adoption profile does not guarantee adoption nor does it obligate you to adopt a poodle. Some dogs have special needs, so not all dogs will be a good match for every home.
Compatible poodles may not be immediately available; your patience is appreciated.
Most dogs in rescue are adults; puppies are rarely, if ever, available.
Most dogs in rescue are male...females are less common.
Remember, the more restrictions you place upon your desired dog (color, age, sex, etc.), the longer it will take to find a suitable poodle to match your environment.
By submitting an Adoption Profile, you are making a formal request to adopt a dog from Coastal Poodle Rescue, Inc. Please consider carefully before submitting your Profile. We encourage you to discuss the matter with all your family members.
