Labradoodle Rescue & Goldendoodle Rescue
Figaro's start on a new life:
Meeting Josh at the shelter, what a happy guy!
After waiting an entire 2 weeks for Josh's registered owner to come collect him... and her never showing up... we have finally been allowed to bail Josh out of doggie jail. The shelter attempted to contact her via phone, mail and I think even a drive-by, but never was able to…Continue
This Thanksgiving, we are so thankful to have Barcley in our lives. He is a loving and faithful member of our family and we are truly blessed to have him. We took Barcley on a trip to the beach with us this fall, and, like the rest of the family, he likes the beach as much as the…Continue
On Saturday we met up with Ann (Sheba and Duke's mom) to pick up our newest foster Truman. My husband and son have wanted to give him a different name since he arrived but no one has been able to agree on one and he has become known as Little Dood - not because he is a puppy but because he is smaller than Clifford the big red doodle dog. Since he has a temperament similar to Clifford's he is fitting in well and may end up staying as part of our family which…Continue
What kind of name is Cash for a dog? I can see it with one of Paris Hilton’s fussy little mini-dogs. But a Labradoodle named Cash? Well, considering that he was in prison in Tennessee, he was probably named after Johnny Cash. It just sounds a little ostentatious to me, and this is no ostentatious dog!
Cash came to us after a long weekend of transport and different people, tired and a little confused. He met Mater and…Continue
As wonderful of a house guest as Dudley is, we were reminded last night that he is still a puppy! My hubby was cooking dinner on the grill around 7:00, and he came back to in to announce that “I had a little problem”, note, not him! LOL! Seems that he didn’t close the screen behind him and Dudley apparently saw something he was more interested in outside than inside and ran out into the yard. The cats…Continue
What a great guy! We had our first big strom last night since Dudley came to stay with us a few weeks ago. Lots of wind, rain, thunder and things flying around the front porach. I put Dudley to bed at 9:30 as usual and he never made a peep. He is by far the best dog I've ever seen in a kennel! I have to make him get up at 7:30 in the morning to go outside. It's like have two teenagers in the house. Our son and Dudley share a room and when our son isn't home, Dudley just keeps looking for…Continue
Paisley was picked up on Halloween down in Houston by our volunteer Anabel. She was from an owner who was "downsizing" their dogs. It wasn't until Anabel got her home, to temporarily foster her until I could come and pick up, that Anabel discovered that poor Paisley was petrified...of everything. Anabel couldn't get within 10 feet of Paisley when she would deficate all over herself because her tail was tucked under her so tightly.
The following Wednesday, I met Anabel to pick up Paisley…
Last night, Gus went home with his forever family! Carrie and Karl (Gus' new folks) drove down from Asheville, NC with their miniature poodle, Rerun. I have to confess that I fell instantly in love with Rerun, a real spitfire of a little girl. Also - she's kind of a tan color that went oddly well with my decor and she just sort of looked like she belonged! (I almost sent one of my throw pillows home with them because Rerun looked so good next to it!). A little bit about Gus' new…Continue
Angus McDoodle is the latest foster (I believe) to DRC. Angus was originally named "Sprite" but when you see him he's more of a Lug than a Sprite. Angus came to us from Maysville, TN on Monday and I picked him up from Linda Rudder (Fitz's aka Scottie's adoptive Mom) on Tuesday. I don't know if its just me or these Tennessee boys are very well fed for being "strays." Angus is a dream. He's friendly, clean, playful, already neutered, and housebroken.…Continue
Thanks to PilotsNPaws pilot, Don Lawton, Jet has been safely flown from Oklahoma to Texas.
Jet was found as a stray in Tulsa, Oklahoma with a broken leg and was taken to the Tulsa Shelter. The shelter contacted DRC to come and help this little…
Get a dog.
Bring it home.…
As you may have read in Nina's blog "Gus Has Been Sprung", Gus is 3(ish) labradoodle boy. Nina and her DD drove to Piedmont, AL to pick him up on Tuesday, and Nina got him vetted, let him have a slumber party with her pack and then got him groomed. Our normal foster drill has Callie at a neighbor's house while I bathe the new foster and try to get him settled in and then trying to keep…Continue
This morning I spoke with a shelter in Alabama (roll tide!) who posted an adorable labradoodle named Gus on petfinder. I was asking the shelter's rep a lot of questions and found out the following.
Gus is an owner surrender, done very hush-hush because he belongs to a friend of someone on the city council (so no names are involved and we can't get past vet records).
The reasons listed for the surrender are:
1) He chases motorcycles
2) He makes…Continue
