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. 

Just browsing but interested in poodles and poodle mixes?  Please drop a note to with your name, address and phone # and email.  We'll add you to our mailing list.

What kind of home would be best for me? Cocoa Doodle is needy, she needs a home where she can be showered in attention. Cocoa doodle is okay with other dogs but if they are overly-hyper she becomes nervous.

What is my personality like?   Cocoa Doodle was released to us from a breeder that could not keep her or her siblings due to moving. This has not affected her personality or demeanor as she is one of the sweetest dogs here. If you do not like a dog to be under your feet 24/7 this girl isn't for you. She is completely devoted to humans and she will give anyone a free hug! Cocoa is very calm, and affectionate. She would do great as a therapy dog or an emotional support dog. Cocoa would also do great with older dog-savvy kids that would love a dog to snuggle up to at night.

Cocoa has been a kennel dog all her life and while it was a nice kennel, there are things she needs to learn.  She does need a little leash work and does not know any basic commands.  She is still getting used to treats as well. 

If you are looking for a dog with a huge heart and a lot of love to give this is your gal! Cocoa was tested with a cat.  She could care less about the things around her because she is so infatuated with people.

One more very positive thing.  Cocoa Doodle is 1/4 standard poodle.  Her shedding is almost nil.  

How I act when I first meet new people: Does not meet a stranger.

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.
