My story

We ONLY accept phone call enquiries.
Tel: 508-533-8251 8am-8pm ONLY.
Do not use the "Ask about me" messages.
We cannot adopt to homes with children under 13 years old.
You must be able to provide a previous Vet reference of care of a previous dog in the potential adopters names under 3 years ago. If you have not owned a dog before we would not be able to move forward.
We believe in a more holistic (LESS IS MORE) approach for care of these small dogs, that can live into their 20's, and you must be prepared to take this approach. Please cut and paste the link to understand about a Holistic approach to vet care.

If this is not acceptable, please DO NOT CALL US.

Maggie is 5 years old, 12lbs small mini and a sweet, happy and super smart energetic Poodle. We are looking for a family that will exercise her on a daily basis. Maggie deserves a great family that will love her and in return she will love them to full capacity, with kisses and hugs. Maggie also has a GREAT nose and would be a fantastic scent dog, for competition or work related. Maggie would chase a cat to play with it, so it would not be a good match. She would be great as an only dog. Maggie runs like the wind and loves it, so a fenced in yard attached to your home is absolutely necessary.
Please be aware that we must do and require what is in the best interest of our dogs. We have evaluated their needs and what will be the best home for this particular dog. So please be respectful of what the dog actually needs rather than what you want if he is not a match.

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADOPTION:
Fenced in yard without exception (physical fence for running off leash, attended) No electric fences.
Someone who loves to walk.
Someone home most or all of the day (no home for lunch situations or dog walkers or daycare)
MUST be prepared to take an integrative approach to vet care and nutrition. (Holistic and conventional care combined and minimal vaccines)
NO other dogs, NO cats

We prefer contact by phone for enquiries: Tel: 508-533-8251 read adoption directions below.

Additional adoption info

How to proceed to adopt one of our Poodles We do not have a facility that you can visit. All of our Poodles are in private foster homes, the way to proceed is to call us first and then fill out an application, by going to our website at www.toypoodlerescue.net and submitting it, we will process your application by checking references etc. We will then arrange to come and visit you and see your home environment and check your yard (if applicable). We bring the dog/Poodle you are interested in adopting with us. Please know, no matter what, we ALWAYS do a home visit WITHOUT EXCEPTION prior to you adopting a Poodle so please be truthful on your application, because our eyes will not deceive us and if we drive out to your home to find no fence when that is required for that particular dog or something that you did not disclose, we will not be happy!! We ONLY adopt out of state (driveable) when it is a special needs dog and the process is exactly the same although you would need to be prepared to come to Massachusetts to get your adopted Poodle if we were unable to arrange transportation. We hear all too often about people applying to other rescue groups and paying to submit an application and never hearing back from them, that does not happen with us. When we process your application you will receive a call from as long as you have filled it out completely. We have a phone number where you can call and if we are not there leave a message and someone will call you back. We return ALL calls. Senior/special needs Poodles Please consider adopting a senior or special needs Poodle, they are usually the dogs that no-one wants, what people don't realize is that Poodles live VERY long lives so at 8-9 years old they may still have another good 8-9 years to live. I personally have owned a 21, 19 and 18 year olds and they are healthy and playful while being gentle, snuggly and oh so very grateful and look at us with so much love saying thank you for adopting us in every gaze. I will never be without a senior dog in my home ever again. We adopted Tiffany at 12 years old, she was blind and frail, but after good care and food she was healthy and happy, she lived to 18 years old so she was with us 6 years and she educated us so much in those 6 years, blind meant nothing to her and she trained us on her needs having different barks for what she wanted, we loved her and those 6 years were so precious to us and worth every day spent with her in our lives. Please consider adopting a senior/special needs Poodle

Go meet their pets

All our Poodles needing adoption are fostered in private homes. We arrange a meeting of the Poodle being adopted once the references and application have been completed and has been approved. We do a home visit and bring the dog/s you are interested in with us. We do not leave any dog that day, we don't want anyone to make a pressured decision, so we go away so you can make a decison if the dog/s you met are a match for you.

More about this rescue

Who are Toy Poodle Rescue We are a small rescue group of people who LOVE Poodles, we are getting a great reputation and are growing and taking in and adopting more and more Poodles. We also work with other small breed rescue groups with the same mentality on re-homing that we have. We are going to remain small and very personal working closely with the families that need to surrender a dog or the new family who will adopt a dog. We have a phone number listed because we want to answer enquires and have that very personal touch and be available to our families for how ever long they need to be in contact with us, our door is always open. Where do our Poodles come from? Many show breeders trust us to place their puppies that they cannot sell due to being too small to breed, too tall, too short, long body, short body, under bite, or over bite or Poodles that have finished with their breeding cycle or as in our past experience the breeder has become ill and had to place their pack of Poodles. We also take in Poodles that are surrendered from private homes and with the many home foreclosures we have seen an increase in surrendered pets due to this sad situation. People moving and cannot take their pets with them for whatever reason. We also get Poodles from homes where the owners have gone in to nursing homes or have passed away leaving their Poodle to need a new adoption. Not all surrendered pets are abused or neglected many just need to be rehomed because of circumstances beyond the owners/breeders control. Many have been loved and cherished members of families but one thing that is always true it is no fault of the Poodle who needs a new forever home. Our Goal Is to place surrendered Poodles into the best forever home that will be the best match for that particular Poodle. We never play favorites or bend the rules so please don't ask us. We don't care who you know or how well known you are, we are not impressed and neither is the Poodle that needs a great forever home!
