Thank you for your interest in a rescued dog.  Our descriptions contain all that we know about this dog today.  We'll update as more information is known. 

We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture.  While we like to know what you like in looks, a dog is more than a pretty face.  Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home.  We want to create furever families. 

Are you looking to adopt within the next 30 days?  If so please visit our webpage at and complete the application.  You'll find it in the menu on the left hand side.  You'll also find a total listing of all our dogs available.

What kind of home would be best for me?   Spencer is very shy and skittish so a quiet and calm home with an adopter that will allow him time to get comfortable in his new surroundings would be best.  We're also looking for a lot of experience with poodles and with dog training in general.  

Because he is so fearful,  we feel Spencer would fare best in an adult only home.  Loud noises and fast movement scare him.   Spencer gets along great with other dogs here but has a history of not doing so well when he lived in a grooming shop.  We think having ONE other dog there to show him the ropes may boost his confidence and help him overcome some of his insecurities.  

Update: Spencer is still shy and weary of new people. The good news is when he warms up to you and learns to trust you he will be one of the most loyal dogs. When Spencer learns to trust you he puts his whole heart into being your pet! He thinks he is a huge guard dog stuck inside a small poodle body. He loves to bark and warn you when he hear's or see's anything out of the ordinary. He also loves to go for rides in the car and walks outside.

What is my personality like?   Spencer has a very timid and shy personality.  He takes his time getting to know you but he does warm up eventually.

How I act when I first meet new people: shy snd timid 

House trained?  Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours.  We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Please note - we do not ship dogs.  If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip.

To apply, please visit our webpage at and visit the tab on the left that directions you to the online application.

Please note that when screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home.   You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, color, age, etc.  Others here may be a better fit for you.  It is very difficult to get to know a living animal from a picture and a short description.  Since we are constantly getting in new dogs, this may be a  dog not in our listings yet.  We want you to be very happy with your new companion and will make suggestions based on what you tell us about you.
