I want to thank you for letting us adopt Dylan and Yoshi. I lost two dogs in two and a half years. We loved them very much. One was 12 and one was 14 when they died. I never thought I would get another one, let alone
My house was empty and quiet and I was very lonely. We’ve never had poodles before but heard a lot about them. When I emailed you about possibly adopting one you said you had two that needed to go as a pair.
You came to our house and looked “us” over as well as our house and yard. Luckily we passed and were able to adopt them.
They have brought so much joy into our lives. Our house and hearts are full again. They are the cutest and most lovable dogs
We take them for walks everyday. Yoshi loves it.. Dylan not so much, but she goes anyway.
When I go out Dylan sits on the back of the couch looking out the window until I come home. They greet me at the door like it’s been forever since they saw me.
I just wanted to tell you how great they are doing and how loved they are.
Also thanks for helping me out with any questions I have.
But most important thanks for caring so much about poodles. They are very lucky to have you looking out for them.
So Toy Poodle Rescue belongs to a group for rescuers, that get notified about dogs that are in need of help, rescue or in danger of being euthanized. We read the email about Toby, his owner had taken in him as a stray several years ago but had never had the money to vet him due to being disbaled and on a fixed income. His dental hygene was really bad and he needed a dental cleaning desperately, so we went into action and arranged to pick Toby up take him to our vet where we gave him a dental, vaccines and microchipped him. We then arranged to get him neutered and paid for his grooming fo the year. As you can see Toby is doing great and his owner loves him dearly, we received this email from the owners daughter. Sometimes you just have to do the right thing!
I am writing to express my appreciation for the help that my Mom received for her poodle, Toby.
My Mom is disabled and lives on a fixed income. She was so sad that she could not pay for things for her dog such as, dental care, neutered, and even pet grooming.
The toy poodle rescue provided these things for Toby, and now he is much healthier and happier dog.
My mom loves Toby so much, she lives alone with him and he keeps her company. She is so happy and grateful to the Toy poodle rescue.
Chloe was adopted locally today to a wonderful home. God bless the person who gave Chloe a forever home and realizes diabetis is just a disease who many suffer from and has no bearing on the love inside waiting to be given to the person who just loves them because.
Another one saved!
Happy Spring! We wanted to send you the biggest and most heartfelt THANK YOU! Little JayC has settled into our home extremely well and we honestly could not have asked for a better dog! He and Noka are inseparable and love each other in true doggie fashion....non-stop play all day long! ;) I think one would be lost without the other!
From the start JayC has had the sweetest temperament and is honestly just what we were hoping for...a snuggler! As we write to you he is curled up on our legs, taking a break from he and Noka's most recent play session. He just wants to be next to us, as much as possible! :)
So needless to say we are so in LOVE and could not imagine our live without him in it!
On another note we also want to Thank You, for the abundance of tips, wisdom and knowledge you brought to us through the adoption process (and after)! We have learned so much from our conversations with you that have not only been beneficial to JayC, but have helped us in our care of our dog Noka, too! From the simplest tips, regarding the benefits of green beans v. celery in our homemade dog food, to best option for natural flea and tick protection, all of it has helped us and our sweet puppies! We also loved the grooming class you provided to current and past poodle adopters!
In general we just can't Thank You enough! We recognize and see how important it is that no matter what you put the needs of the dog you are adopting first - what lucky dogs those that are surrendered to you are! You are a true angel for all dogs that come into contact with you and JayC is proof of that! There truly is no one else out there doing as thorough and thoughtful a job as you are when it comes to re-homing a dog to it's forever home!
We are forever Thankful and hope to stay in touch for a long long time!
I thought that I would take a moment to thank you, although "thank you" does not seem strong enough! Your ability to match a dog with a troubled past such as Peluche, to a home such as mine under my care, is astounding. He has made some major improvements. Peluche is such a changed dog in the short few weeks that he has been here and still making improvements daily. He now feels safely at home here and loves going to the barn and around the farm with me. He is more accepting of people coming to our home and they all love him. He seems exceptionally happy around children and seems to welcome them playing with him.
I guess that Peluche and I agree that you made a good choice and you will not be getting him back!
Thank you so much,
Bob and Peluche
PS: Peluche said that you should feel free to contact us and come see how well he is doing in his new and permanent home, whenever you have time.
I lost my best little buddy in November. Carot was a Toy Poodle, Champagne color. He needed a home about 9 years ago so he moved in. We had a blast together, when he went to his great reward I was crushed. I thought I would never get another dog. About a month passed and I really missed the companionship. My daughter said 'Dad what do you want for Christmas', I said a dog. She said you find it, my brother and I will buy it. I started looking on line for Toy Poodles in need of a home. I found Toypoodlerescue.net. I saw one little guy I liked and when I called he was just taken. Sue told me she had a chocolate little guy named Nico. Well we talked back and forth for a week or so then Sue came over with Nico, my wife and I fell in love with him immediately. About another week went by before Nico moved in. You could tell he was a little scared and nervous. At bed time I set up a little spot on the floor next to me and he laid down and started to cry. I picked him up put him on the foot of the bed and he’s been there for the last 6 weeks every night. We hike together, play, my adult children love him. My wife takes him for walks and plays with him. We started taking training classes a few weeks ago and it is working for us. He is a smart little guy and I am learning right along with him. His energy level is high, I can’t wait to get him into agility classes after this. I’m not looking for perfection, just to help him become a happy healthy loved little dog. When I first started talking to Sue at Toy Poodle Rescue I thought I was adopting the Kings daughter. She had a certain set of rules. When I met Sue and she sat with my Wife and I, she had a way of explaining why she had those rules that made sense. You could see the passion she has for these dogs. I have called Sue a few times for advise and she has taken the time to answer my questions and also to call anytime. She makes you comfortable to know it’s not just here’s the dog good luck. Call if you need help. The bottom line is I have a new best buddy that has his forever home and is loved very much and the joy he brings my family and I is more then we could have wished for.
Thanks to Sue and my two kids for their great gift to my wife and me.
My road to Martin the Lhasapoo began innocuously enough. Our beloved poodle Oliver had passed away in July, and it was now November, and the grief had subsided enough to allow thoughts of getting another pet. However, it hadn’t subsided enough for me to go online to look, so my sister-in-law offered to do it for us. The first dog she found that she thought we might like was Martin.
I emailed the Toy Poodle Rescue people the next day and Sue called me back immediately. She filled in Martin’s back story, then advised that she would be bringing him to the Meet’n’Greet that weekend. I made sure to be there, even arriving just as Sue was bringing all the sweet little babies into the pet store. I took Martin (who was recovering from his recent neutering) from her and cuddled and talked to him and just fell in love. My 87-year-old mother was also with me, and she fell in love with him instantly. He was so sweet and cute and loving, there was no way not to fall in love!
After that, Sue contacted us to set up a home visit. She brought Martin with her and we got to spend a little more time with him, which only reinforced our initial feelings about him. Unfortunately, our yard was not securely fenced in, so Sue advised us to get those shortcomings fixed. Suffice it to say, it took two tries before it was suitable for Martin, and we could rest assured he couldn’t get out. Sue was patient but firm with us, and there was never a doubt in my mind that what she wanted most was a good, safe, loving home for Martin.
The day she came back to check on the fence for a final time, she brought Martin and all his belongings in case it worked out. Well, I was so thrilled when she said the fencing all looked fine now, and he was ours!!
Sue took the time to explain a lot of things about poodles, vaccinations, healthy food, etc, so that we could take care of Martin in the best possible way. We learned a lot and have put all her suggestions into practice.
Martin has been with us a little over a month, and he has settled in quite nicely. He sleeps with me every night, and we get up in the morning, I take him out, and then he goes back to bed with his “Grandma”. She takes care of him during the day, and they most love to sit and cuddle in ‘their’ chair. He is the sweetest, most gentle little guy. He laps up all the hugs and kisses he can get! When I get home we either go for a walk or I take him in the yard and throw his tennis ball (size small so he can pick it up) for him and he races and runs around the yard, ears flying in the wind, and you can just see the smile on his face! In the evening, he takes turns snuggling with both of us, as though he knows his responsibilities. He is an exceptionally good boy and, after a couple of accidents early on, he has not done any of his business in the house.
We couldn’t be more happy with our sweet boy, we love him dearly, and he has brought joy to our house again.
It was obvious from working with Sue that she takes her work seriously and puts the dogs’ best interests first. She was fair with us and didn’t sugar coat our responsibility to Martin, nor did she downplay how important it was that we do things correctly.
I would recommend Toy Poodle Rescue to anyone who is looking for a dog. Sue knows more about dogs than anyone I’ve ever met, and I respect her immeasurably. Her obvious love for the dogs and her commitment to placing them in the right home is an inspiration to dog lovers anywhere.
Sue and Martin have transformed our lives, and given my mother a reason to get up in the morning, and given both of us the biggest love in a tiny package, more than we could ever have imagined.
Donations have been gratefully received for Martin from:
Marie T. McCarthy - In memory of Emma
We are the family fortunate enough to have adopted Tristan. He has only been with us a short while, but what a joy and blessing he is. Tristan is just as Sue described him in his bio. 12 pounds of love in the body of a poodle. Tristan is like a Boy Scout - polite, waits his turn at the door, never pulls on his leash, helps an old lady-me- to cross the street. Tristan is also very funny with his toys, playing tug of war and getting us to play with him. After just the right amount of time, he takes the toy, rests his chin on it, and takes a snooze.
Tristan is sweet as sugar, such a good doggie. He goes with the flow. In the morning he will get up when I do, if that is 6am or 9am no problem. Tristan is patient getting his winter gear on before we go outside. Coat, harness, leash, no problem. He brings a sense of calmness with him.
We were without a dog for almost a year, and with the help, kindness, support, understanding and education from Sue and Toy Poodle Rescue, we are honored and proud to be the new parents of Tristan. Both Sue and his original family can be certain we will cherish and love this boy forever.
Heartfelt admiration for Sue and Toy Poodle Rescue for the amazing job they do helping people keep their dogs when possible, saving lives of abandoned dogs, rehoming surrendered dogs and being the best matchmaker there is. All the dogs/poodles and people she has helped...it boggles my mind.
Hope to send some photos along soon so you can see how happy we all are!
