I was just on Carolina Poodle Rescue because I like to keep updated. Just if anyone is wondering there are PLENTY of very adoptable dogs there. Puppies as well. Just to note a couple of Spoo that are highly adoptable..
William & Harry- Spoo 7 months old from a Retired "breeder" & these 2 pups did not sell.
Jet- 2 years of age came in with 2 others, Owner has Thyroid Cancer & can no longer provide for these 3 Spoo.
Tess- 2 years, Chocolate Parti
Nellie- 2 years, black All 3 don't need to go to the same home. The owner just wants them to have the life that they should have.
Erica- Maybe someone might have some knowledge with a Spoo not able to gain weight. She is 22" tall & weighs in at only 28lbs. Been to vet & cleared of Addison's. Was put on meds for Cushings for 3 wks now BUT no weight gain & now they need to go back to the vet. So far nothing has come up with blood tests. Sweet dog.
Plenty of Minis & Toys that are looking for great homes.
Toy Poodle that has had pups will be adopted out when she is done nursing.
Please go take a look.. I wish I could just have some more room just to add 1 more but none for now. My CPR boy is off to Obedience class tonight.

I love CPR and I believe in rescue but I can't go to the site very often because it breaks my heart. I want Boo and Maisy. I tend to fall for the seniors or those with a certain "expression." Porter Wagner makes me cry. He's going blind and he's homeless (forever homeless).
I've never seen so many non-poodles on the site before though! And I can't find William and Harry.

I'm the same way Rowan, it's the senior rescues that get to me. So few people want to take on a dog (or cat) that won't be with them for a long time. It's so sad, especially in cases where they've been a beloved pet for most of their lives, and somehow end up in rescue in their golden years.

I also have a habit of torturing myself by going to the Southern California Poodle Rescue site. I know it'll just make me sad, but I can't help myself. And I get to see the dogs when I drop Beau off for grooming, which is even harder. Someday, though, we'll be ready and Beau is going to get a partner in crime.

Before I started looking at breeders I scoured the rescues and shelters for a Spoo, anywhere withing 250 miles of here....no luck. I LOVE the senior dogs...they yank my heart strings...so wise, and so in need. I'd take one in a heart beat. There just isn't any Poodles up here in the shelters or rescues.

Phrannie- glad you were looking at Rescue Spoo's. I would still keep a Rescue in your radar. Plenty of "rescues" actually remove pure breed dogs from shelters before they even have a chance to be in on a list. Also you could look on Craigslist, Petfinder etc... If you give me your radius I can look on my facebook group. Right now I know of 3 Spoo's that need rehoming on this group.

I also torture myself looking at rescues. There is an adorable male parti mini that would be a great playmate for my Auggie; but we cannot add another right now. I have shared this pups picture with so many friends, in the hopes that someone I know will adopt him!!!
