Neutered male             Silver               Miniature Poodle        17.5 lbs         9 yrs 

Buddy is a beautiful, sweet, affectionate purebred miniature poodle  that is looking for just the right home.  He is happy and energetic.  He is great with people – both familiar faces and strangers.  He is housetrained and is not the sort that will chew on your prized possessions.  He is crate trained.  He is a gentleman with the groomer, even when having his nails clipped.  The reason that Buddy is looking for just the right home is that  he is not comfortable with other dogs that are unfamiliar to him (though he can be ok when properly introduced!) and he has separation anxiety when left alone.  Which is to say that he probably needs to be an only dog, and he needs a new best friend that will be home with him most of the time and that is willing to make arrangements with a sitter or doggie day care when they are going to be away for longer periods.   If you are the person that can provide these conditions, you will be just what Buddy needs and he will be a great companion and will reward you with lots of love.

Dogs are vaccinated, microchipped  and spayed/neutered before adoption. 

The necessary first step to inquire about any dog, is to complete the NCPR Adoption Interest Form. Once we receive the NCPR Adoption Interest Form, a volunteer will contact you promptly. We need your information to match you with the perfect companion. NorCal Poodle Rescue places dogs within northern California only.

About NorCal Poodle Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of volunteers who rescue, rehabilitate and find loving homes for more than 100 poodles and poodle mixes each year. Serving Northern California and Southern Oregon, we rescue and adopt standard, miniature and toy poodles, as well as poodle mixes. We respond to county shelters, humane societies and individuals via our website and phone hotline. Each poodle is microchipped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and groomed before adoption. In addition, we provide extensive medical care, fostering, boarding and training if needed before placement. We have a return policy in the event that a poodle adoption doesn't work out.

We are always grateful for your donations and 97 per cent of all donations are dedicated to our poodles. As we are an all volunteer organization we incur only 3 percent administrative cost. The generous gift of time by our volunteers, support and services by pet care businesses, and your tax-deductible donations make this work possible.

Our Adoption Process...

We are dedicated to rescuing Poodles and enriching the lives of those who adopt them. Our adoption procedure is designed to find a good match between the Poodle and adopter. If a person see's a Poodle on line or meets one at an adoption fair, and is interested in getting more information, they are required to complete adoption application at: One of our volunteers will get in touch with the person as soon as possible.

Adoption Fee: NorCal Poodle Rescue often incurs substantial costs to provide our rescue and adoption services including boarding, fostering, spaying and neutering, vaccinations, treatments, training, etc. To partially cover these costs we have the following fees for adoption:

Standard $300-500; Miniature $200-400; Toy $200-400

Return Policy: We provide a two-week trial adoption period during which everyone can assess if the adoption works for the Poodle and the new family. If the family or person decides not to keep the Poodle within this two-week period, the adoption fee will be refunded. After the two week period the Poodle may be returned at any time, but the adoption fee will not be refunded. If at any time or for any reason the family or the person cannot care for the Poodle, please call us and we will take the Poodle back.

Adoption Interest Form: If you wan to adopt, but you don't see a Poodle that matches your needs, you can file an adoption interest form. This is especially true if you want a Standard Poodle. We have a waiting list for Standard Poodles. We always contact people on our waiting list before posting a Standard Poodle on our website.
