Neutered Male        Apricot Miniature Poodle Mix   7lbs.     6 months

I know these aren't the best photos of me, but I just begged to go up on the website so I can find my forever home.  So here I am.  It's just that  I’m a little impatient to get things going to find my new family because I’m just a puppy – 6 months old, and puppies aren’t noted for their patience!  (By the way, I'm not in jail in that first photo, just looking at you from the other side of the baby gate at my foster mom's house!)

I’m really a happy, outgoing guy.  I just love all the kids and all the adults and all the other dogs that I meet at the dog park near my foster mom’s house.  I go up to all of them for love and snuggles and it never occurs to me that I will get anything other than the best from everyone.  And since I’m a cute puppy, all the people I meet do respond very well to me.  Maybe its my curly apricot coat or my soulful cognac colored eyes?  Whatever, as long as it works and I get hugs and a chance to sit on laps here and there!  (I also like to play.  Hope you do too.  Tug of war is fun don't you think?!)

If you choose me, you will have me for a very long time since I’m so young.  And you will get the chance to train me to your very own specifications, because I am truly a blank slate at this point, and all puppy.  I need someone that understands how puppies chew things and need to be taught to chew only the chew toys instead of socks and paper!  And how puppies are little jumping jacks and wind-up toys full of energy!  And how puppies need reminders and training to be 100% housebroken.  And how puppies can be little escape artists – particularly when they weigh less than 8 pounds as I do.   And someone who knows just how much fun puppies can be. 

So if you’re ready for a puppy, please think of ME.  Please, please, please?!!  I'm waiting for you (impatiently).

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.
