News from Delmarva Poodle Rescue


Pepper is a 7-8 month old, black miniature poodle pup with a white blaze on his chest.  He is an active guy who will need training, as any young dog would.  He was given up when the couple realized that he was too active for them and their older dog.  He has been cared for and is very social, loving and just fun!  He would do best with family with older kids or an adult family.  A fenced in yard is required for this boy as he will need a yard to fetch and stretch his legs.  He is neutered, UTD on his shots and heartworm negative.  Adoption fee $600.


Chez is my name!  I am a five year old, fun loving guy.  I am active.  Love to play with toys and go for walks.  I may be small (8-10 pounds), but I am athletic and ready to go.  I was in a loving home, but my family was separating and I was reluctantly given up so I could find a home that could give me all the love and attention I was so used to.  I would do best with older kids or an adult family.  I am kind of bossy with other dogs so will be best with a non-dominant dog or as an only child.


My name is Matilda and I am fabulous! I am probably a bichon/maltese/poodle...okay, if cute, white girl was a breed that would be me! I am a happy girl, 3-4 years old, who has been through quite a bit~a testament to my zest for life.  A shelter found me injured and pulling myself down the street on my front two legs.  I was such a fun, sweet girl that they got in touch with my friends at DPR who went to quite a lot of trouble to have surgery on my back.  We worked very hard, but I am walking and loving life again!
