Do you have any SPCAs around where you live?

Have you checked with any other shelters? Some shelters will do a transport if you live far away. They still do home checks and things like that, but they make it easier to get animals adopted out. 

ETA: Are those the puppies? So cute and fluffy!

@coffeegal85:  Rescues like to do home visits prior to adoption, especially for puppies. If you don’t have dogs already they are especially keen to ensure that your home is suitable and secure for a dog.

We adopted a rescue dog just last week from 3.5 hours away. If you are genuinely interested see if there is a way that you can provide photos of your home (all areas) and arrange a meet and greet to ease their concerns. That is what we did and the rescue was okay with it.

Best of luck!

I would keep trying to work with them and see if there is anything you can do, like pictures, or a transfer, as PPs have said. Those are some cuties!

@coffeegal85:  Try expenading your search to other low-shedding breeds. A standard Poodle is a wonderful companion, for example. 

 

The problem with the Poodle/Lab mutts is that you might get a dog with Lab shedding and fur anyway. Just something to keep in mind if the Poodle hair is important.

@coffeegal85:  I understand. Like treejewel said, I would still see if they would work with you by sending pictures of your home or meeting with them. Sometimes shelters will say no to see if you are seriously interested in adopting, but they end up working with you once they see that you are. A friend of mine adopted a dog in another state, and they were against it at first, but she eventually got the dog. They arranged a low cost transport and everything. Good luck!

ETA: I just saw where you said they were adopted. Anyway, I hope you find your dog soon.

The SPCA website should have all the dogs available for adoption up with pictures.  I highly recommend going through the SPCA.  My two dogs are from there and I couldn’t be happier.  Plus, they will not turn you away because of your distance.  Just take a ride over there and look around πŸ™‚ You would be surprised at what type of dogs they receive.  And they do have a program where you can put your name on a list with the choice dog you are looking for and they will give you a call if one is available and you would get first pick.

@coffeegal85:  Tell him that the Poodle is a water-retrieving hunting dog! Haha, they really are great dogs.

 

I’d hop on petfinder if you aren’t already. Usually there are pleeeeeeenty of Poodle mixes about.

 

Best of luck!
