News from Delmarva Poodle Rescue


My name is Chance and I am an adorable 8-9 year old, large white toy poodle.  I am a sweet and loving boy waiting for a nice lap to curl up next to and someone who will play with me.  I love belly rubs and snuggling.


Okay!  So I am not a poodle and do not have one piece of curly haired DNA, but I am so cute that my friends at DPR had to post me!  My name is Minni and I am a terrier/maybe Chihuahua mix.  I am 5-6 years old and I love people.  I am looking for a nice adult family to play with me and let me sit on their lap at night.  I love toys and I am VERY smart.


Rusty is a 3-4 year old, apricot male standard poodle. He is a wonderful boy who is active, smart and is just a love. His owner reluctantly gave him up when she realized she was unable to give him the time he needs with her busy work schedule.  He is in beautiful condition. He is looking for an adult only family with experience with dogs. He will need some obedience and attention to get settled in. NO ELECTRIC FENCES. This boy needs a fenced in yard and an active family. Applications can be found on
