Adoptable Animals/Process&Policies

We are a unique rescue and first rescue-based breed club providing for our dogs and adopters what no other rescue provides.  We take in poodles and poodle mixes of all sizes, curly or wavy coated dogs, and occassionally other breeds as space and resources allow.  People feel very comfortable surrendering their dogs to us because of our strict policies, finding the type of families the former owners want their dogs to be adopted to, our nutrition program, our lifelong free training program, our environment and because of what we provide for our dogs and adopters for the rest of the dogs lives.  Adopters also come back and adopt a second dog because they are so happy with the first adopted dog.  However, in 2012 and 2013 we unfortunately had to turn away over 300 animals in need.  WITH YOUR HELP, we can save more lives during the times we are full by you becoming a volunteer and/or foster home….for a few hours, days, weeks or year by year.  Sometimes there are dogs in danger of being euthanized in animal control and we need someone in that area to pull the dog out of there under our name and hold the dog for a few hours until we can get the dog to us.  Sometimes we receive a senior dog that deserves to live the rest of their short lives in a loving, private home.  Sometimes there are owner surrenders that live far away and need help getting the dogs to us.  Sometimes we have a dog that needs to recover from surgery and needs personal recovery time and attention in a foster home.  Sometimes a dog is better in a private home until the dog is adopted.  These are situations that we need foster homes for.   By being a foster, you are helping to save two lives:  the existing dogs life in foster and the one we take into our program in it’s place.  This is where we need your help.  We want our fosters to provide the love and time for the dogs in need.  We will pay for the food and the yearly medical expenses.  Won’t you help today?  We need you and the dogs need you.  Existing adopters are already pre-approved to be foster homes and are allowed to adopt the dogs they foster.  New foster homes that have not adopted from us must allow us to show the dog to prospective adopters.  If they are interested in adopting a fostered dog, they must go through our normal adoption process.  Don’t be selfish and say you would never be able to give up a foster dog but instead think about the dogs and ask yourself how you can help out one of our dogs and help to find them a good home and get them into an environment in the meantime where they can have one on one attention.  If you want to volunteer yet can’t find the time then let us bring one or two of our dogs to you to foster in your own home where you can volunteer lots of time with them.  Send an adoption application in today and write “foster” on it.  There is no application fee for a foster application.

Even though I lived with her since I was a pup, I understand she wants the best for me. I weigh 45.5 lbs and Georgia Poodle rescue is slowly altering my diet to put a little more weight on me. I just came to them today and I have passed my evaluation test as a friendly loving dog. I can sit, down, wait and come and walk on a leash. I pull a tiny bit sometimes but they are teaching me how not to pull. They just gave me a heartworm test (negative) and updated me on my vaccinations. I love playing with other dogs and am available to be adopted to the right home. Here are pictures of me in the car on the way to the vets office and more pictures showing my handsomeness.  $500

CONNIE – BLACK STANDARD POODLE GIRL

Connie is a young jet black female very sweet standard poodle girl. She was abandoned as a youngster in her backyard along with her brothers and sisters by an AKC breeder. Connie was born about 6/6/09 and came together with her sister Frances and her brother Houston.. We updated her on her vaccines, heartworm tested her, and spayed her.   Connie has been taken on several meet and greets and was almost adopted but then the adopters senior relative died and left them three senior toy poodles to take care of.  We have tested them and it is okay for them to be adopted separately.  Ever since we have opened this rescue in 2009, we are proud to say that our dogs have always come updated with their vaccinations (many times with a 3 year rabies vaccination), DA2PP,  Bordatella, heartworm tested negative, spayed/neutered, sometimes have a dental if needed or as resources allow, flea/hw prevention, trained, microchipped, dewormed, socialized with people and animals and lifetime free training and nutrition advice.  Our adopters are very happy with the dogs they adopt from us and many times come back to adopt a second dog from us!  Our standard poodles require a five foot minimum safely fenced yard unless otherwise listed.    $500

 

COTTON – TALL WHITE STANDARD POODLE BOY

Cotton is a 3.5 year old tall white standard poodle boy as of May 2014.  His former owner fell upon bad times and could no longer afford him.  She tried to give him to the Humane Society and another no kill animal control facility but they would not take him because he had a large tumor on his hip.  She did not know about us then as she just recently moved to GA.  A person who was looking for another dog at the animal control facility at the same time overheard the conversation and said she would take Cotton and add him to her pack of 7 dogs.  She also had a cat and unfortunately Cotton didn’t like cats so she called us.  We neutered Cotton, heartworm tested him negative, and updated him on his vaccines.  We also gave him super good customized nutrition and his tumor is gone.  He is now available for adoption.  He is tall and weighs about 63 lbs.  He is a gentle, happy and loving guy and plays very well with other dogs.  Ever since we have opened this rescue in 2009, we are proud to say that our dogs have always come updated with their vaccinations (many times with a 3 year rabies vaccination), DA2PP,  Bordatella, heartworm tested negative, spayed/neutered, sometimes have a dental if needed or as resources allow, flea/hw prevention, trained, microchipped, dewormed, socialized with people and animals and lifetime free training and nutrition advice.  Our adopters are very happy with the dogs they adopt from us and many times come back to adopt a second dog from us!  Our standard poodles require a five foot minimum safely fenced yard unless otherwise listed.    $500

DAISY – Tripod Goldendoodle Puppy Girl

 

Daisy was born with 3.5 legs, hence the tripod title.  She is a beautiful goldendoodle girl, born 4.14.14, whose 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 would do well in a home that has another dog that likes to play and is gentle with a pup.  We are looking for the right home for her with a fenced yard as we believe she will grow to be a standard sized dog.  Her adopters must also have the patience and time needed to care for a dog, including staying up all night with the dog if it needs you.  It doesn’t matter if you are tired, if the dog needs you then they only have you to rely on……same as a human baby.

A tripod dog can walk and run just fine, which Daisy does, and Daisy has even mastered to climb several stair steps.  Because she only has 1.5 back legs, she does not squat when she urinates or defecates so would need cleaning every single time she does this as it falls on her fur.  This may change as she becomes a taller adult.  Her adopters must also show us that they are familiar with the needs of a pup this young and with this handicap.  We will be very careful adopting this precious and beautiful little girl to the right home who can care for her properly.    $500

FRANCES – BLACK STANDARD POODLE GIRL

Frances is a jet black female very sweet standard poodle girl. She was abandoned as a youngster in her backyard along with her brothers and sisters by an AKC breeder.

She is all grown up now and is a very lovely young lady with a great, loving, temperament looking for her forever home. We have tested them and it is okay for them to be adopted separately.  Ever since we have opened this rescue in 2009, we are proud to say that our dogs have always come updated with their vaccinations (many times with a 3 year rabies vaccination), DA2PP,  Bordatella, heartworm tested negative, spayed/neutered, sometimes have a dental if needed or as resources allow, flea/hw prevention, trained, microchipped, dewormed, socialized with people and animals and lifetime free training and nutrition advice.  Our adopters are very happy with the dogs they adopt from us and many times come back to adopt a second dog from us!  Our standard poodles require a five foot minimum safely fenced yard unless otherwise listed.    $500

Hi, my name is Louie and I am a 65 lb black goldendoodle boy, born January 8, 2012.  I was purchased from a breeder by my former owner. A very nice veterinarian saved my life twice by removing rocks from my stomach when I was younger. I was in the backyard alone and decided to pass the time by tasting them. I couldn’t crunch them so I swallowed them. The first time my former family paid for the operation but the second time happened soon thereafter and my former family couldn’t afford it because they just had a baby. So the vet took me in and fixed me again. My hero! That was several months ago and I am all better …with my hair grown back. I am a very good boy and happy and relaxed. I know how to shake paw (with each paw), sit, wait, down until you say “okay” and I know stay for short periods, heel,and walk and run well on a leash. The vet drove over two hours to get me to Georgia Poodle Rescue because they try to be very careful with their adoptions and I am a young boy that needs attention and exercise. I love playing with other dogs and my peeps. I am such a cool dude in personality and in looks and I am waiting for my forever home to find me!  I am neutered, microchipped, updated on my vaccines and trained.  Oh, and I do squirrel patrol, too, because they don’t belong there! $500

MICA – BLUE STANDARD POODLE BOY

Mica came here with his sister Kara.  His sister Kara was recently adopted.  His birth date is 8/5/08. Their former owner fell upon financial hard times with younger children and very sadly had to give them up.  The former owner had both since 7 weeks old.  They are a gorgeous blue color and have their beautiful undocked natural tails.  Mica is very well socialized, a fun dog, and very well behaved. He loves to cuddle and play and he will be your best friend. Mica weighs about 65 lbs.  He will make someone a wonderful dog.  Ever since we have opened this rescue in 2009, we are proud to say that our dogs have always come updated with their vaccinations (many times with a 3 year rabies vaccination), DA2PP,  Bordatella, heartworm tested negative, spayed/neutered, sometimes have a dental if needed or as resources allow, flea/hw prevention, trained, microchipped, dewormed, socialized with people and animals and lifetime free training and nutrition advice.  Our adopters are very happy with the dogs they adopt from us and many times come back to adopt a second dog from us!  Our standard poodles require a five foot minimum safely fenced yard unless otherwise listed.

PIPER – AKC WHITE STANDARD POODLE GIRL

Picture of Piper on Intake

Born October 6, 2011, Piper is a beautiful AKC white poodle with black tipped ears. When the hair on her ears grows longer they will look absolutely stunning.  Piper was surrendered to us along with her toy silver sister Sophie (who has since been adopted) due to the former owners lifestyle change, work schedule changes, the daughters moving away to college, and not having enough time to give to them so they asked us to find them wonderful homes.   Both dogs are beautiful, happy, gentle and playful girls and get along great with other dogs.   Piper was formerly on seizure medicine with the former owners but through approval of our vets, we weaned her off of it and gave her super good nutrition and she has never had a seizure while with us since 2013!  Her former owners said she only had a seizure once and that was shortly after administering a certain brand monthly heartworm/flea medication.  Instead of waiting for it to happen again, they said their vet automatically put her on anti seizure medicine without testing her.  She no longer needs it and has been off it for almost a year with no problems at all.  She is a healthy girl and is on a grain free kibble diet and the raw meaty bones diet providing the live unprocessed protein and amino acids that a dogs body needs to thrive.  Ever since we have opened this rescue in 2009, we are proud to say that our dogs have always come updated with their vaccinations (many times with a 3 year rabies vaccination), DA2PP,  Bordatella, heartworm tested negative, spayed/neutered, sometimes have a dental if needed or as resources allow, flea/hw prevention, trained, microchipped, dewormed, socialized with people and animals and lifetime free training and nutrition advice.  Our adopters are very happy with the dogs they adopt from us and many times come back to adopt a second dog from us!  Our standard poodles require a five foot minimum safely fenced yard unless otherwise listed.  Sophie has found her forever home and now it’s Piper’s turn!     $500

 

OUR POLICIES AND PROCESS

Policies

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 attached to you while outdoors in an unfenced area.  Our large dogs require a minimum five foot high appropriate physically fenced yard.  Sometimes we have large dogs that do well with a four foot fence but the fence must be appropriate for the dog and no lower than four feet.  If a large dog does not require a fenced yard either due to their age, physical activity, demeanor, medical or other, then their profile will indicate this information.  However, they, too, must always be on a leash attached to you while outdoors in an unfenced area………..even if it’s in your own yard, you live far from the road, and you deem your property safe.  No invisible fencing.

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

5.  Have appropriate dog and/or breed experience

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.

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 to a dog, and meet our other criteria.

8.  No dog doors.  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.
