News from Delmarva Poodle Rescue


I am Norbert and I am a seven year old blue, black miniature poodle.  My friends at Delmarva Poodle Rescue got me out of a shelter where I had been a solid mat and was really frightened.  I am clean shaven now and will look glorious once my hair grows back and I gain a little more weight.  I am a nice boy who would do best in a quiet home where I can lay on the couch, watch TV and go for walks.  I am good with other dogs, I like people and would love someone to just hang out with me.  I am up to date on shots, heartworm negative and neutered.  Applications can be found on


Paula is a black and white, nearly 8 months old, large toy poodle.  Presently she weighs 7 pounds.  She is no shrinking violet-funny, full of play and active, Paula will need the same in her new family!  She will need some basic obedience, learn boundaries and will need the guidance that any pup requires.  She is up to date on shots, spayed and heartworm negative.  Adoption fee is $600. Adoption forms can be found at


Franklin is a 7 year old, really sweet, probably bichon/poodle mix.  He was reluctantly given up when his owner was ill and no longer to care for him.
