How to???

If I have already been approved for adoption but not "matched" with the dog that I originally applied for, how should I go about applying for another dog. Should I call, e-mail, or submit a new application? We have e-mailed interest in three other dogs since the original application. I've had one call back and it was decided that the dog would go to a family that was at a closer location to the foster. Never heard anything on the other dogs. I realize there can be 40-50 apps/dog but is there… Continue

Almost Home Fred

It is no small thing, making one's house ready for a new dog. It has been almost 2 years since my last dog died and I had cleaned out my stash of collars, bowls, beds, toys, brushes, etc. So out I went to the various pet stores and boutiques around Evanston, IL gathering the essentials and some slightly less essentials (a darling robin's egg blue poop bag holder which attaches to the new brown and blue leash) so that when Fred comes home tomorrow he will not only feel my excitement, but will…

Harley aka One of the Portland Dogs :)

It has been about 5 days with Harley and I know I said this about Eli (I am very lucky) he is such a great dog!

He is completely house trained. Today, I discovered he will retrieve anything you want. So far I had him "give" me a can of soda, remote, my cell phone. a wooden spoon, and reg. spoon and a hard boiled egg. I had a feeling he was a "bird" dog because his canines are all filed down. (I am from WI and hunters do that there) I also knew he love to play ball. I just happend to drop… Continue

Thanks so much

Wanted: Medium Sized Female Golden Doodle


First, a little history....When my husband and I got married in '98, I became mom to his 5 year old Lab - Cody. We lost him 3+ years ago to a long but brave bout with cancer (2 months after his cat buddy, Sam, passed away due to kidney faiure - I'm convinced he just missed Cody so much he wanted to be with him in heaven)....  For the past 3 years my kids, now 10 and 6, have wanted a dog to make our house more like it was when Cody was here.  Emotionally I  haven’t been…

Clover Playing Dress-up

I have been around a lot of different Labs and Golden Retrievers in my life, but Clover is one of the most tolerant and loving dogs I have ever seen.  Our daughter Lexi has just fallen in love with her.  Clover will let Lexi dress her up, put bows in her hair, have dog parties with her stuff animals.  So I just wanted to take a minute and share a couple of Clovers glamour shots.… Continue

Seriously Seeking Doodle

I live in Georgia and will travel to any of our neighboring states (AL, TN, NC, SC, FL) to adopt a cat-friendly Doodle.  Age range should be 8 weeks to 4 years old.  I have a great house and one acre of land, with a fenced dog area, a national park at the end of our cul-de-sac, an older brother that works from home - so it's just the three of us.  You can blog here or email me at taylorphoto@comcast.net to share information.  Thank you!

Rory and Harley are two sweet first generation doodles who were in a kill shelter in eastern Oregon when Doodle Rescue Collective was asked to help. They had been surrendered by their owners when Harley's owner died and Rory's owner moved out of state and dumped him at the shelter. Because they were owner surrendered, they would have been among the next group of dogs to be euthanized for space. The dog warden begged us to take Harley once she knew we could find a pilot to save Rory. Being a…

Meet Max

Max is an almost 10 month old labradoodle that was rehomed by his family on Dec 24th.  Michele, in Los Angeles, picked him up after he was listed as "free" on Craigslist.  We received him from Michele on Dec 26th.  He had become too large for his previous owner's apartment and Grandma, who watches the children, was having a hard time with how big and strong he had become.  He is right around 50 lbs and still growing!  He is black in…

Eli week 4

   Eli is up to...... 41.5 pounds! I was so happy at the Vet today. He looks normal now. The Tech told me he looks like a different dog :)

Figaro has found his forever home!!!

What a wonderful way to start the new year!!  I met with both families that were interested in Figaro and his forever family has been chosen!  I had the great pleasure of calling Frances and Jim and telling them the great news!  We met on Sunday, Jan 2 and after the "debriefing", Figaro jumped into the back of their brand new SUV that they purchased so they would have room for transporting both of their doodles.  What a motivated family!…

HOLIDAY CASH - a foster dog update

Busy times have led to fewer Blog updates, but today it's time. Cash has been a great boy over the holidays! I was really afraid he'd water the Christmas tree like he does the ones in the yard – but he didn't bother the tree at all! He left the ornaments, lights, gifts and everything untouched unless his toy bounced into the milieu and then he carefully reached in to get it. I'm continually amazed by what an easy dog he is.

He has gotten comfortable enough with us now to let a couple… Continue
