Hi, does anyone happen to know if Pet Rescue is legitimate and above board (not somehow tied up with puppy mills)? Specifically, the poodle cross rescue in Perth?
Thanks in advance!

The Pet Rescue website is just a platform for many groups. There are some legitimate groups on there (e.g, the Shenton park dogs refuge home), others less so.

I am not sure about poodle cross rescue.

Have you found a dog? Link?

Isnt he sweet! I don’t think I’ll actually be able to convince DH to get a senior after our vet bills last year but it looks like the organisation has younger dogs sometimes, I am thinking of contacting them but not if it’s but a true rescue organisation

Ooh, he is cute. Having a quick look through it looks like they have rehomed lots of different age dogs, which is probably a good sign that they are not a puppy mill.

He looks identical to my 10 year old toy poodle. He’s been an absolute dream to have in our home:) if we’ll cared for they can live until 18, so whilst he’s senior, my boy is still super active & you’d think he’s still a puppy. Could you take out pet insurance? If I was in the state I’d adopt him in a heartbeat.

All our family poodles (mix of toy and miniatures)have lived for 16 - 18 years (over a number of families)

I’m from Melb and most of the pet rescue groups we were looking at on the website were at the Melbourne dog show and we got to meet them and talk to them.

There are a lot of stupid oodle mixes out there that need a home and need rehoming

Yeah Pet Rescue just hosts for rescues to post on. I've used it often.

Doubtful that a 10 year old is a puppy mill dog. I think you're safe.

Thanks. I do realise that, I just don’t want to accidentally support an organisation somehow connected with mills, especially as I’ll be looking for a younger dog, not this particular one (I would adopt him in a heartbeat but my husband wants a younger dog)

Thanks for the info everyone

Arrgh currently having to explain to DH why a 12 week old dashoodle is a bad idea!

A dashoodle? WTAF???

Man. They're taking irresponsible to a whole new level.

Tell him by the time it's one year old it will be blind and partially paralysed due to chronic back issues and hereditary blindness common in most BYB and puppy mill dogs (they're not tested, so you know they're most likely carriers).

I know it's good to support rescue - but are you sure you don't want to contact a poodle breeder and get the real thing (and thus avoid having the oodle conversation with your DH)?

Good grief. Poor puppies. For the price these mills charge, you could buy one of each and race them.

Yeah I’m contemplating it as it now seems he wants a puppy. Can you tell me- how can I know if a pure poodle is legit and what would the rough cost for a toy poodle be?
Thanks so much!

Start with Dogzonline, also the ANKC website, which will allow you to access the Canine Council in your state. You should be able to see the local registered Breeders.

From there, join some of the local poodle fancier pages, and see who is doing what. You should be interested in discussions about testing, showing (generally champions have good conformation and won't have musculoskeletal issues), and pop along to dog shows to meet them.

Send your resume, and make intro phone calls. Expect to be interviewed. Generally, the ethical ones will have desexing in the contract, and also a return to breeder if rehoming is required, clause.
