Joleen (Donations desperately needed)
Every year we do a Christmas miracle by saving a very sick dog that no-one else will take in due to the cost of their care and at risk of being euthanized.
We were contacted by a shelter because Joleen has a very serious heart condition and needs heart surgery.
As suspected Joleen has a Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) you can read about it here: http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=2+2096&aid=865
Once her surgery is complete she will be a normal healthy dog and live a long and healthy life.
Joleen has had all of her pre-op testing including full bloodwork, x-rays, an ultrasound, EKG and will have her surgery on Wednesday 4th November. Her surgery is estimated at $4,000, so we are desperate for donation to help pay for her surgery and hope everyone will find it in their hearts to help us help her. No matter how much, we are always grateful and a few dollars, by several people add up, Thank you.
Joleen is only 2 years old, she is a Bichon/Maltese mix and as sweet a little girl you could wish for. Loves to snuggle and just follows you around. She is a very happy and confident dog, not needy at all, you would be able to take her everywhere and she will love everyone she meets. She LOVES tummy rubs and just being with her human. Just a truly wonderful personality, with a gentle, kind temperament. Please help us to give her a new healthy life. Once her surgery is done she will be a normal healthy dog.

Wonder was found as a stray and taken to the City pound where we saved him from. What a diamond in the ruff he turned out to be, he went from dirty and smelly to the most well bred and beautiful Bichon we have seen once given a bubble bath and grooming. He has a snow white coat, is exceptionally well bred and proportionate for his breed we estimate him to be 7-8 years old. He had bad dental care but we have taken care of that and he now has shiny white teeth and kissable breath. He has wonder-ful manners, including being totally potty trained, knows commands as his video shows, he really is a wonder! Laid back and easy going, the days on the lamb have made him very appreciative of good food and a nice cozy bed. He just aims to please and would love to belong to someone again.
We can tell he was very loved and cared for, he just needs a new home and that love again.

Lyllie Mae was born on 9/9/12 and is a small Mini Poodle at 11lbs.
Lyllie Mae was surrendered to Toy Poodle Rescue due to a broken leg as a puppy and the owners could not afford to pay for her to be treated. As you can see we took over her care and she is doing wonderful. She is fully recovered as the video shows. We also had Lyllie Mae Spayed and her baby teeth removed. She is an amazing little girl, she has not skipped a beat and her cast did not slow her down, she loves playing with toys and other dogs and has a gentle and very sweet personality. Lyllie Mae is a typical young dog and is very playful and is well trained and listens well. She is not a biter and can be trusted not to 'get into things'. She sleeps right next to you in the big bed and after cookie time settles right down to sleep and does not move for the rest of the night. Lyllie is also totally potty trained and has excellent manners. A beautiful red coat, she is well bred and has her ACA papers (American Canine Association). She is an extremely affectionate Poodle and loves to snuggle up with you.
Please note we are in Massachusetts and only adopt to a 75 mile radius of Dover, MA.

- Someone must be home some or all of the day

My pretty pink neck brace
Pi is a 3.8lb, 10 month old, apricot Poodle, her story is very sad. She was purchased from a very poor breeder to breed but surrendered to Toy Poodle Rescue once she exhibited she was in pain. Unfortunately for Pi, she has a spinal issue, where her spine is not aligned and she has to wear a brace ongoing seeing the neurologist on a monthly basis. She also has two bad back knees, which will need surgery after her spine is better. We are asking for donations for Pi to help pay for her upcoming surgeries. Thank you. She is not available for adoption currently.

Ladybug is a little 5lb Phantom (coloring) Poodle, that came to Toy Poodle Rescue as the family wanted to euthanize her. Ladybug had back surgery and her physio therapy was never done so she did not learn how to use her back legs again. She has been fitted with wheels so she can get around but we will be going to the Neurologist we use to have a full examination and to see what else can be done. Our goal is to get her walking again and doing physiotherapy daily. Lady bug has so much spirit and really wants to be a normal little Poodle and we hopefully are going to give her that. Her treatment is going to be costly and we are hoping for financial support from our supporters and cheering section for Ladybug. Her progress reports will be updated along with her videos showing her improvement.
We want to thank you for your support.
