Labradoodle Rescue & Goldendoodle Rescue
When Jeannine emailed me the other night to let me know we were getting a new dog in our program I must admit I didn’t know what to picture when she told me he is a basset doodle. Well, I just want to go on record and say a basset doodle is one very cute doodle indeed!
