Adoptable Animals/Process&Policies


PLEASE GIVE THESE DOGS THE SPECIAL HOMES AND WONDERFUL LIVES THEY DESERVE!  They will look up to you and tell you in many ways, EVERY day how appreciative they are! 

PLEASE READ OUR PROCESS AND POLICIES AS WELL AS FURTHER INFORMATION THAT APPEARS AFTER THE LARGE DOG SECTION BELOW. Warning!  This song is catchy and you’ll find yourself singing, humming, or whistling it to yourself!    

THESE DOGS ARE ADOPTABLE BUT THEY NEED SOMEONE THEY CAN DEPEND ON FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES.  THEY NEED YOU.  WILL YOU COMMIT TO CARE FOR THEM FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES?    DOGS BELOW ARE SECTIONED BY  SMALL (Toy), MEDIUM (Miniature/Moyen), AND LARGE (Standard/Moyen) – This web site contains the most updated information should different information be found on other web sites.

When you adopt from a rescue or foster for a rescue, you are supporting our rescue efforts by helping to support our existing dogs and making space for us to save even more dogs that deserve to have another loving home rather than to be euthanized in animal control.

A SAMPLE MEET AND GREET PIC WHERE EVERYONE HAS FUN!   Remember, we are available for free training and nutritional advice for the rest of the dogs life.


 Keep on sharing all our pictures so we can find homes faster. Print them out and post them in the dog food stores, grocery stores, feed stores, department stores and boutiques, diners, restaurants, veterinary offices, groomers , subdivision post boards and newsletters, your company newsletters, break rooms, cafeterias, apartments, senior homes, playhouses, and everywhere else you think there will be quality adopters who could afford our grooming and care and our personality of following you everywhere, hence, our nickname of the shadow dog. This is not our fault that we are here needing homes. We are wonderful, trained and socialized dogs and you receive free training and nutritional advice for the rest of our lives. Please always help us. There will always be more of us coming in and us poodles cannot speak for ourselves so we need Georgia Poodle Rescue! We need your support in many ways! Thank you for your kindness and caring towards us. Thank you for paying attention and taking the time to read this. Always remember us when you see an opportunity for us. Please never forget us.


SMALL TOY DOGS (4-13 pounds) – (Unless otherwise listed, each of these dogs are $300)

AMBER – Cream Toy Poodlex Girl!

My name is Amber. The first picture is how I look now and the second picture is how I looked when I first came to Georgia Poodle Rescue I am a tiny cream poodle mix girl, mostly poodle, possibly with maltese, with a disadvantage. I walk with my left front paw up as if I want you to shake paw with me. My former owners let me run free outdoors because “they were away from the road and “never had any problems” before”. Big dogs also running free attacked me and animal control was called. A high kill shelter with no vet put “me” behind bars because they couldn’t find the other dogs and because my owners now no longer wanted or cared for me. Maybe they wanted me to die. I am very lucky to be alive! I am thankful I got out of animal control before I was automatically euthanized and a vet stitched me up and I came to Georgia Poodle Rescue. My stitches have just been removed but I have radial nerve damage to my front left paw. I don’t place weight on it when I walk but can walk and run and hop on and off furniture fine. I was untrusting when I first came here and was in pain but have turned into a well behaved, wonderful, and happy little girl who gets along with other dogs. I like to cuddle and can hug you, too, and hang out and keep people company and follow you around both inside and out. I like other friendly small dogs.  I can run fast and jump on and off furniture.  I am updated on my vaccines, have tested heartworm negative, am microchipped and only need to be spayed, which Georgia Poodle Rescue will do…but you can come and see me now! Please read policies at the end of this page and email for an application for a meet and greet. Please let me live in a loving home again….One that won’t get rid of me. I promise my disability is minor and we can play, and cuddle, and love each other. Love, Amber.  $200

BEAMER- White/Light Cream Toy Poodle Puppy Boy!

My brother Berkeley and I are from the same litter.  Our mother, Anna, our sister, Ivey,  and our brother Princeton were adopted and Berkeley and I are still looking for loving homes where we can be loved and cherished!  I was born here and am accustomed to being with another friendly dog.  I like to run around and play with my brother Berkeley and also the other dogs and play with toys and bring them to you!  I like dogs and I like people and I want to play, play, play!   I weigh about 10 lbs!  $500

BRIDGETTE AND JUDY – Lhas Poo Girls! (Must be adopted together)

Judy and Bridgette were surrendered together by their former owner to animal control.  They are mother and daughter.  We tried to separate them but they are inseparable and need to be adopted together.  Judy is a Lhasa poo and Bridgette is also a Lhasa poo.  They both have a wonderful personality, with Bridgette being a little scared until she gets to know you, then her personality comes out and she is very sweet.  Judy was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and she is on medication.  We would like to adopt both together as they are dependent on each other.  $400

Major Star – Cafe au Lait Young Miniature Poodle Boy!

Major Star is a beautiful cafe au lait young small miniature/large toy poodle boy who was born 6/15/15.  We just had him neutered and updated his vaccines and he tested heartworm negative.  He was originally purchased out of a box of puppies someone was selling in a parking lot.  The person who purchased him, his second owner, had him for a few months then didn’t want to deal with a dog so she gave him to her sister, his third owner.  She also had him for a few months and no longer wanted a dog so she dumped him at her mother’s home.  The mother, who was the fourth owner had him for a few months where he stayed out on a deck during the day and brought in at night, could no longer keep him so she asked us to find him a good home…we are the fifth owner.  We added Star to his name because he is a real star.  He has a very nice personality, shy at first because he was so matted, he could hardly see.  When we groomed him, we had to shave him down and the mat came off in one big pelt.  He felt so relieved and was scared of the clippers at first but we spoke to him in a soothing voice and held him and he soon knew the clippers were his friend.  He looked so relieved getting all that matted hair off of him.  We are training him but he is available to be seen and possibly have the training continued by you with our tutelage.  $300


Missy, a blue toy poodle girl, born April 2010, came to us together with her sister Meg, who was adopted.  Their former owner’s new grandson, who spends a lot of time at their home, was diagnosed with a rare disease and the poodles made his allergies flare up, which caused dangerous breathing problems.  Both poodle girls were well cared for and we are now looking for a good home for Missy.  Missy is a well behaved, friendly, and happy little girl who loves to cuddle with you.  She is quiet and potty trained and will make someone a very happy owner! $300

Sammy and Lilly – Black Boy and White Girl Toy Poodle Brother and Sister!

Sammy is a 4 year old black toy poodle boy and his sister Lilly is a white 4 year old toy poodle girl.  Both are precious and are bonded and need to be adopted together.  They are potty trained, well behaved, give non stop kisses and are looking for their new home to find them!  They came to us because their owners work schedule changed to 12 hour shifts and it wasn’t fair to Sammy and Lilly so they wanted us to find a good home for them together.  $550 (this reflects a $50 discount for adopting both together)

Stella – B/W Parti-Poodle Puppy Girl!

Hi! My name is Stella! I am a black and white toy parti poodle puppy girl born 7/25/16, and weighing 8.1 lbs November 2016.  My mom loved me very much but forgot how much work a puppy is with needing tons of attention, potty training, and puppy training cuz I’m a puppy girl who likes to run and play and do all kinds of puppy things. I am very friendly and give kisses and can run and fetch a tennis ball and bring it back to you!  I love all dogs I see and want to kiss them.  I love you!   I jump up and down like a pogo stick on my back legs when I want you to pick me up.  I think I’m so cute……and you will too!  Georgia Poodle Rescue spayed me and updated me on my vaccines.  I am looking for someone who is home a lot to play with me and teach me things because I need them at my age. I also need a home where the people can run and play with me and I won’t outlive them so I won’t need to be rescued again.   Households must not have large dogs for the safety of Stella.  $500

Zander – Apricot Toy Poodle Boy

Zander is a 5 year old apricot toy poodle boy, weighing 8 lbs.  He belonged to an elderly woman who could no longer care for him so he went to two different family members who loved him but little Zander was too scared of their big dogs… he came to Georgia Poodle Rescue so we could find him a good home.  Georgia Poodle Rescue, had their vet neuter Zander, give him a dental, and update him on his vaccinations and he tested heartworm negative.  Zander is a happy, quiet little guy.  He gets along with all other dogs his size here and loves to be held and babied in your arms and would be perfectly content sitting on your lap while you work on your computer or watch TV.  He loves to sleep in your arms.  Here is a picture of him clipped short and with a full face of fur.  Do you have room for a little Zander in your life?  $300

MINIATURE DOGS – (15-34 pounds) – (Unless otherwise listed, each of these dogs are $300)

Coby – White Miniature Poodle Mix Boy!!!

Coby is a white miniature poodle boy with a possible tiny mix born around 2/4/11.  He sports his beautiful natural poodle tail!  He was found as a stray by his former owner when he was about one year old.  He came to us together with Kasha, a cream miniature poodle mix girl born 12/14/11.  Kasha was recently adopted.   Their former owner is elderly, was diagnosed with cancer, and has no energy with the cancer treatments so we were asked to find the dogs a good home.  They may be adopted separately.  Both dogs are very friendly.  He is  happy and playful and loves playing with other dogs.  His weight is  about 15-18 lbs.  $300.



June 2015, Murphy is a 6 year old deep black miniature poodle boy.  He is a sweet little boy.  He weighs about 18 lbs.  He was surrendered to us because he did not like his owner’s fiancee.  He was placed in the bathroom while his owner was out.  The second time he was adopted, he was placed in a bedroom while his owner was out.  We have discovered that Murphy just can’t be “put away” while his owners are out.  He wants to be part of the action.  Let him be free in the house.  Murphy was spoiled in a way people spoil each other.  But dogs need to be spoiled differently so they will continue to be obedient.  He has a sweet personality and is obedient as long as people are nice to him.   We will teach you how to be a pack leader with him and spoil him in a way that will work with his sweet personality.  We prefer a home without young children for Murphy.  We have never had a problem with Murphy at the shelter…  $300

LARGE STANDARD/MOYEN DOGS (35+ pounds) – (Unless otherwise listed, each of these dogs are $500-fenced yard needed)




Cooper is a beautiful cream standard poodle boy who was born 2/23/16.  He is tall for his age and friendly with other dogs and people.  He is a puppy and is teething so enjoys chew toys and needs them so he won’t chew things he shouldn’t.  He has a free and happy spirit and loves to run around and play both indoors and outdoors with his people.  We are working on potty training and basic obedience training and he is doing very well.  Pictures coming soon.  $600

DAISY – Tripod Goldendoodle Girl!

    Daisy was born with 3.5 legs, hence the tripod title.  Her date of birth is 4/15/15 and she is a beautiful goldendoodle girl.  Her breeder wanted her euthanized after she was born because of her handicap of three legs.  The veterinarian refused and said she is a perfectly healthy pup, to keep her with her mother until 6 weeks and he will take her.  We were contacted to take her into our program.  Daisy has a marvelous, playful personality and needs a home that has another dog that likes to play and is gentle with a younger dog.  She is slightly smaller than a full size standard doodle and is called a moyen/klein size, which means “medium” and is the fourth normal breed size accepted in Europe and other countries.  We are looking for the right home for her with another dog and a fenced yard so she can run her fast speed and you can play safely with each other.  She currently weighs about 45 lbs and may grow slightly but the vet thinks not that much more.  Her adopters must also have the patience and time needed to care for a dog, with this handicap.  She does not know how to squat on one back leg so when she urinates the urine may dribble down her back leg.  You must wipe this with a wet cloth each and every time to avoid bad bacteria, which may contribute to a UTI.   We keep the hair on the back legs closely trimmed.  A tripod dog can walk and run just fine, which Daisy does, and Daisy has even mastered to climb several stair steps and can climb a chair using her half leg.  A dog diaper may work well on the indoors for this.  But she hasn’t needed one with us.  Daisy requires a home with another friendly dog she can play with.  She will not do well being an only dog nor left for long periods of time.  We have brought her to one of our vets who has examined her to determine if her leg can be dropped.  We know she uses her disabled leg up to the knee and uses the knee to run, climb, and sit.  She gets along just fine and does not need an orthotic.  As some dogs experience, Daisy also has an anaphylactic shock to vaccines as seen and documented by our veterinarians.  She must always be given the right kind and dose of Benedryl at least 45 minutes before being vaccinated.  We will be very careful adopting this precious and beautiful little girl to the right home who can care for her properly.  Special Price to the right home.

JOEY – Red Labradoodle Boy!!!

Hi! I’m Joey! I just arrived! I am a red labradooodle born 03/26/13. I know sit, come, go to bed, speak and I give paw. I know how to walk on a leash, too, but I pull because it gets me places, but Georgia Poodle Rescue will help me with that. My owners purchased me from a breeder in South GA as a pup but due to their schedules they cannot give me the same time I need as they gave me before so they want me to go to a good family who can spend the time with me. If it’s you, then I want to meet you! Go to and view the policies then email them for an application to meet me. I can’t wait to meet you!!!  $500


– Cream Labradoodle Puppy Boy!

Riverstone is a beautiful cream soft wiry haired labradoodle puppy boy.  He was born 12/20/15.  The former owner purchased him and then looked at her lease which said no large dogs so she asked us to find him a good home because she didn’t want to lose her lease.  Riverstone is going to be a big boy.  He has large paws and as of July 2015, he weighs about 55-60 lbs already!  He is super friendly and loves, loves, loves all other dogs.  He just wants to have fun and play.  He is very inquisitive, very handsome, and we are looking for someone to be home with him a lot as he is still a puppy.  View our policies at the end of this page and email us at for an application for a meet and greet.  Come meet this big, gorgeous, super happy doodle guy!  $500


Romeo is a beautiful smaller cafe au lait standard poodle boy born 6/22/13.  He weighs about 43 lbs and loves to be with his people and run around and play with dogs and with people.  He can jump a 6 foot high fence but probably not an 8 ft high fence and right now we are running around with him in a fenced area but with a 30 ft lead line to be safe.  Anyone who lives nearby Alpharetta/Milton area who has an 8 ft high fence that we can test Romeo in then please email .    Romeo is a happy boy, comes updated on his vaccines, and we are evaluating what training  he needs.  $500

Savvy la Joie (Savvy) – Tan German Shepherd Girl With Black Muzzle)

I am a very nice, very calm, and well adjusted pure bred 3 year old german shepherd girl!  I am all tan with a black muzzle…….just like the movie star dog named Rin Tin Tin!  I could be his sister we look so much alike!  My former owners were moving and had too many german shepherds so I went to animal control.  I am very friendly and love playing with other friendly dogs.  I am a quiet girl but will bark when I feel to alert you to something that doesn’t seem right!  I am inquisitive and also know how to be by myself.  I am an inside dog and enjoy going outdoors in a safely fenced yard with my owner to play in.  I am not to be kept as an outdoor dog.  I like to run and play with other dogs or with my humans.  I am an athlete and can run fast and jump over hurdles.  I like to stay right near my human while outside unless I am running and playing with other dogs.  Come meet me.  I know you will fall in love with me!  $400




1.  Be a minimum age of 25 years old

2.  Most of our small dogs do not need a fenced yard but must always be on a leash and harness attached to you while outdoors in an unfenced area…..even on your own property. Our dogs are accustomed running off leash in a safely fenced area outdoors with our volunteers and trainer.  Our large dogs require a minimum five foot high appropriate physically fenced yard attached to your home where you and your dogs can play without the interference of other dogs.  Please actually measure the lowest and highest point of your fence and don’t guess.   We ask for a minimum five foot high fence for our large dogs.  Anything below or above that height that is an exception will be listed in their profiles.  Nearby dog parks do not substitute as your own fence for our large dogs.  Your dogs must always be on a leash attached to you while outdoors in an “unfenced” area………..even if it’s in your own yard, even if you live far from the road, and even if you deem your property safe.  No invisible or electric fencing, no dog doors allowed, and no outdoor or indoor tethering allowed.  These are unsafe no matter what you are told elsewhere.  If you cannot go outside and run, play, and walk with your dogs and feel a need to tether them outside (against the law) or are too lazy to take them outdoors to potty and let them potty on your deck then we are not the right group to adopt from.  We want to find homes that are good for the dogs best needs.

3.  Have no children under 10 years old.  If your child is 9 years old and has been raised with a dog successfully then we will consider your application.  These dogs are not adopted to children as a toy or “for my child to have a dog”.  These dogs are adopted to adults who are contracted with us to be the responsible people to love, care, and to always supervise the dogs around children no matter how well behaved they are.

4.  Be a permanent resident of the state of GA and a permanent US citizen.  WE NO LONGER ADOPT OUT OF STATE!  Your drivers license must be a GA drivers license.  If you have your green card, student/work/other visa, you are not a permanent US citizen.

5.  Have appropriate similar dog and/or similar breed ownership experience that can be verified under your name with a veterinarian in the United States.  Growing up with a dog does not count as being the owner of the dog as your parents had ownership and financial responsibility, not you.

6.  Adopted dog must be adopted for and live with the applicant full time, not adopted for someone else, and the adopted dog is never transferable.  The person adopting the dog must complete the application and have a working email that they use regularly.

7.  College students are not applicable to adopt dogs from us until they have graduated, have settled into their new jobs and know what time, expense, and energy they now realistically can provide for a dog, and meet our other criteria.

8.  No dog doors allowed.  You are contracted with us to be outside with the dog when they are outside.   A top animal psychologist has indicated that a dog’s mind is not past that of a two year old human child’s mind.  A practical, caring person in their right mind would not allow a two year old child outdoors by themselves.  We want the same philosophy for the dogs we adopt and so do the people who give their dogs to us.

9.  All dogs and cats in your household must be spayed and/or neutered.

10.  Your adopted dog must always be on a leash unless it is in an appropriately fenced yard where it is supervised by a capable adult.

11.  If you have a small dog or past small dog experience and want to adopt a large dog, please have large dog ownership experience as well as experience keeping both sizes together if you presently own a small dog or vice versa.  Large dogs require so much more than small dogs, especially in the exercise area, and many unintentional accidents can happen between the two sizes.  Exercise is not just letting the large dog into the back yard and expecting it to run or play by itself.  It means physically going outside with the dog and actively running and playing with it.  Simple leash walks will not meet a large dog’s exercise requirements, no matter how far or long you walk them……. unless they are older dogs.

12.  You must have an active email account that you check regularly as we stay in touch via email.

13.  You must be able to run with and after these dogs to play with them and to catch them if they become loose.

14.  We no longer adopt to residents of Hall County due to Hall County Animal Services euthanizing a dog without first contacting the registered owner of the microchip.  We will take in dogs from residents of Hall County but unfortunately cannot adopt to residents of Hall County.
