News from Delmarva Poodle Rescue

Abe and Alex

Abe and Alex are 5 year old litter brothers that are just the sweetest guys, love to play and are the perfect house pets.  They were reluctantly given up by their owner when he was no longer able to care for them.  You can tell these boys have been adored and are bonded since they have been together since birth.  Abe is jet black and Alex is slightly gray.  We are hoping to keep the brothers together.


Jax is an adorable white toy, two year old toy poodle. He was well cared for in a home, but his owner was no longer able to care for him. He is active, loves to go for walks and car rides and is just funny. A great house pet, Jax is crate trained, UTD on shots, heartworm negative and ready for that new comfortable couch. He will do best with a a single person or couple. He is playful and loves to entertain. He will be best as an only child. He is housebroken. Adoption fee $400.

Max II

Max II is the sweetest of little guys.  When we picked him up at the shelter he jumped in my arms and said, "let's blow this popcorn stand!"  So funny and has never met a stranger.  He is an 8 years old, black poodle mix and given up to a kill shelter when his owners were no longer able to afford him.  He is 9-10 pounds and the perfect little companion.  He is up to date on shots, neutered and heartworm negative.  If you are looking for a little ray of sunshine, that is this happy boy.  Adoption donation $200.
