MYSTR (“Mister”)

Neutered Male                White Miniature Poodle Mix           15 lbs.          10 yrs 

Well, here I am looking for my forever home again.  My first five years were a little chaotic and I wound up in a public animal shelter, from which I got adopted into my present home.  Things were great there and my new mom just the best, but then she went from being home a lot to working and now to working long hours and traveling a lot.  She knows that I’m a dog that needs people (which, as Barbra says, makes me one of the luckiest dogs in the world), so she’s looking for a new home for me through the poodle rescue people. 

So let me tell you about myself.  You will have noticed that I’m ten now.  Since I’m a miniature poodle, I am still very young at heart and physically very active; we minis are like that.   And at only 10 I have a lot of good years left in me!  I’m very friendly and love people  -- my family as well as new people that I meet.  I’m not one of those dogs that barks at every little thing he hears, so I won’t drive you crazy by being yappy.  I like to play with my ball and I’ve taught myself a few tricks with it that you might find amusing.  I’m crate trained and I’m very good in my crate (actually I feel cozy in it for a couple of hours here and there when my family is gone somewhere).  And maybe it’s not modest for me to say it, but I’m cute too. 

It’s really important to me too have a new home where the people aren’t away very much, as being alone makes me anxious and upset.  I’ve heard it called “separation anxiety,”  but to me it just means that I need my people around!   It doesn’t mean that you can’t go away for an hour or two and leave me in my crate,  I’m fine with that.  But if you want to be away longer I'll need some company.   I’ll happily stay with a neighbor or friend or relative for awhile – as I said, I really do like everyone I meet. 

I’m really so anxious to settle into my new, truly forever home, particularly now that the holidays are coming and all I can think about is families and how wonderful it would be to have one of my very own.  The poodle rescue people can arrange for us to meet, so please be in touch with them.  I’m waiting here for you.

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.
