We are a unique rescue and club providing for our dogs and adopters what no other rescue provides. 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 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 alone we unfortunately had to turn away over 200 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. Send an adoption application in today and write “foster” on it. There is no application fee for a foster application.

ARNIE – SILVER/WHITE YORKIE POO BOY
PROFILE: Owner surrender-known history.
Arnie is a beautiful silver and off-white yorkie-poo who came to us because his owner lost her job. He is a playful and happy little guy who loves to be held and be near his person. Arnie’s hair can be kept short or grown long and you can give him many different wonderful styles. We estimate him to be about 3 years old as of January 2013 and about 10-12 lbs. His coat is very silky and has large luxurious and very soft curls on the body, soft straighter hair on his face and head, and soft wavier hair on his legs.. He is a cutie pie and plays well with other dogs, is a happy little guy, and loves people. This picture shows him right after a bath before his hair is brushed out so you can see the different curls and waves. He is looking for his new best pal. $300
BEEBEE – FAWN TERRIER MIX GIRL
Beebee is a tiny little dog about 9-11 months old as of January 2013. Beebee weighs about 13 lbs. We were at the vet’s office with her when a breeder walked in with her border terriers. The breeder thought that Beebee could be border terrier or border terrier mix and we think Beebee could also be Norfolk Terrier or mix.. Whatever she is, she is a cutie, is super sweet, and a happy little girl. She loves to run, flies across the yard, and is very friendly with other dogs. Won’t you give her a great home? $300

DANNY – WHITE/CAFE AU LAIT TOY POODLE BOY
DORA AND JILL – WHITE TOY POODLE GIRLS (Must be adopted together)
GUNNY – TINY BLACK POODLE BOY
Gunny is a teeny, tiny, jet black toy poodle boy about 3 years old and weighing about 6 lbs as of June 2013. His former owners could no longer keep him because of their schedule change and asked us to find him a good home. Gunny has a great personality, is a happy boy, potty trained, walks on a leash, and is a good boy. He would do best in a home without small children as we wouldn’t want him to accidentally be hurt. He will sit with you for hours on your lap and be your constant companion. Pictures coming soon.
LIAM – TINY BLACK HAVANESE/POODLE BOY
Liam is a teeny, tiny, black havanese poodle boy weighing about 5 lbs. His former owner graduated, could no longer keep him due to a schedule change, and asked us to find this little guy a great home. He will do great in a home without small children as we do not want him to be accidentally hurt. He is potty trained, walks well on a leash, has such a happy and pleasant personality and would be an ideal companion for someone in an apartment or a condo. He is so tiny that he cannot be left outside alone, even in your own back yard, and must always be on a leash on a harness while outdoors because a predator can easily carry him away very fast. Pictures coming soon!

DRAKE – WHITE MINI POODLE BOY!
This beautiful miniature poodle we named Drake is a wonderful 1-2 year old white darling of a boy we neutered, updated on his vaccines, and gave a good grooming to. Look at how he came in and then how he cleaned up! He was on death row at a high kill animal control facility and we were asked to take him into our program. He was very scared at the animal control facility and didn’t know what we wanted but when we lead him out with a leash and put him in our van, he gave us a little kiss. What a sweetie pie! He will jump into your arms, he is always smiling, has a great demeanor and he will put his paws around your neck and place his head on your shoulder. He is very playful and loves other dogs his size. This little boy has a lot of love to give to someone who deserves him. He is looking for his forever home who will love him and never let him get like that dog in the before picture again. $300

Review our policies below, complete the application (request by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or cut and paste in full the application on this web site), return the application via email attachment, pay $20 application fee via Paypal.com . Once Paypal notifies us of receipt of your application fee, we will begin review of your application and contact you shortly thereafter. When a meet and greet is scheduled, all members of the residence, both fur and human, must be present during the meet and greet. After we meet, if all decide there is a good fit, then we will usually adopt within the next few days when references, home visit, and fence check (if applicable) are good.
PREREQUISITE POLICIES-Read Before Completing the Application
1.) By the time these dogs come to us, we are usually the third to fifth home for them and we want the next home to be their final stop. So please review our prerequisite policies below before completing our application. These policies are for the protection of the dogs and include but are not limited to the following:
2.) Be 25+ years of age
3.) Have no children under the age of 10 (close to 10 may be accepted on an individual basis depending on the child’s experience and interaction with dogs).
4.) Have recent poodle or similar breed “ownership” experience that can be verified by a vet under your name. We will check this so if your dog ownership experience cannot be verified by us with your vet under your name then it does not comply with our policies. If you have recent appropriate non-poodle dog “ownership” experience that can be verified by a vet under your name and that breed is not a poodle breed but you want to adopt a poodle, then we may make an exception but will need to know you have performed the proper research, for you to share with us everything you know and have researched on the poodle breed, how they differ in daily care, personality, and daily needs from other breeds, what you can provide for one or more of our adopted dogs and why. “Growing up” with a poodle does not comply with these policies.
5.) Unless otherwise indicated in their profile, all standard poodles and large dogs from us require a physically-fenced yard with an escape-proof fence of at least 5 ft high (most of our large dogs and some of our smaller dogs can jump a 4 ft high fence). Electric/wireless/underground fences and shock collars are not appropriate nor acceptable at any time.
6.) Many of our smaller dogs do not require a fenced yard, unless otherwise indicated in their profiles, as long as they are always kept on a leash attached to their owners while outdoors, even if it is on their own property. This is for the safety of the dogs.
7.) Be a permanent resident of the state of GA in the US.
8.) Not be a student. An exception may be made based on other qualifications, if the student is a part-time student already in their career job, and truly knows the time they will have to commit to an adopted dog.
9.) Our dogs are not transferrable. Please do not apply for someone else. The owner and caretaker of the dog must be the person(s) applying.
10.) Have a valid and working email address and know how to use it on a regular basis. We keep in touch with our adopters via email with newsletters, news, events, and other items.
