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? Jaq would do great in a home where they can help him over come his fearful behavior with new people. 

What is my personality like?   Jaq has came great strides since he has been at the farm. When he first arrived out of a hoarding situation.. he was extremely fearful and hid in corners. Jaq has now gained confidence with the people he is familiar with and has turned into a complete lap dog! Please note he will be nervous while meeting new people.. but he adjusts well. Due to his fearful behavior, calm children would be best.

Notes from caregiver 4/26/2017- "Jaq-  Sweet little guy. Crate trained. I don't see any aggression toward other dogs except Luke. He even got out in Greta's field (where other small dogs play) and didn't try to take charge. He is pretty good on a leash so I think he would train fast on one. When off leash he doesn't always come to his name but when he does he loves to be petted. He loves to be held and likes to be outside but begs to go back inside if you are inside otherwise he wants to be in the same area you are.  He got along with my calm 10 year old daughter."

How I act when I first meet new people: shy, friendly when he gets to know you.

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.

My age:  Estimated birth date 2/5/2015.

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.
