Deborah Moore replied to Karen Colcernian's discussion BEARD STAINS in the group OLIVIA'S DOODLE PARLOR
"Simon is a cream ALD. His groomer told me NOT to use a whitening shampoo because they use peroxide in their formula which opens up the surface of the hair and makes it even more susceptible to staining. I have tried Chris Christensen White on White.…"

Karen Colcernian added a discussion to the group OLIVIA'S DOODLE PARLOR


Lilly is cream-colored and when we got her in February her beard had no stains at all. Now, after 5 weeks, she's starting to stain underneath her chin. We are feeding Nutro Natural Choice. We bathed her last week and used a whitening shampoo but it didn't seem to make much difference. I want to feed her good food but I would be willing to change to another premium food if it would make a difference. Any ideas would be appreciated. Doodle kisses, Karen & LillySee More

Profile Information

Where are you located?
Washington, Michigan
Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
We (my husband and 18 y/o daughter) will be looking for another doodle to call our own. Our beloved giant schnoodle, Carmen, is suffering from acute lymphoblastic leukemia. With heavy hearts my family and I are trying to get used to the reality that her time is very limited. Our hearts are wide open to another dog!
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
Other than 2 goldfish (rescues) Carmen is our only pet. She was rescued from a barn where she was weaning 14 puppies. She was rescued by her foster mom, Cindy, who took her home, got rid of the parasites, fattened her up and put her on petfinder.com where we found the ad. We were immediately smitten with her and traveled 12 hrs round trip to get her from Cindy and bring her to her forever home. She has enhanced our lives beyond words. She is currently 7 1/2 yrs old
Have you read our adoption policies?
We find doodles to be very nice dogs. We have owned 2 standard poodles in the past who lived to very old age and the doodle is an enhanced poodle.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?
Our choice would be to rescue a doodle that needs a home. We don't want to add to the overpopulation of unwanted pets.

Welcome Karen!  I don't live too far from you, we are in Eastpointe.  Our thoughts are with you and your family as you go through this heartbreaking time with Carmen.

I would fill out the application and every time you see a dog you think might be right for you, I would send an e-mail telling them you have an application on file and would like them to consider you for xxx.  I would also keep checking those humane society web sites. You might see a doodle before anyone else does!

Be sure to fill out an application (form at the top of the page) and check Petfinder and your local humane society. I am so sorry about Carmen.
