The Dynamic Texas Boys.

Max and Darwin two adoptable doodles, in texas, are truly amazing.mThey are German Shepard doodles. I have worked with foster dogs for over 10 years, and these two are the smartest, most easily trained, eager to please,faithful dogs I have ever worked with.

When we received them they were extremely anxious and full of energy. They were crated in an extra large metal crate together when needed. They were extremely co dependent on each other. Gradually I began to separate them so that their… Continue

Hershey was described as a spinner with barrier aggression.  Not liking human contact and backing up in the corner when kennel opened.  Dragline needed to catch.  I’m happy to report that I have not seen any of the behavior.  Enjoys playing with female dogs.

Lizzie was described as being…

Meet Bruno! A gorgeous 16 month old F1B goldendoodle available in St. Pete, FL. He is crate trained and knows sit and paw. We are currently working on his leash manners and teaching him not to jump.

Cocoa - ADOPTED!

Cocoa is an F1B labradoodle that is 4.5 years old and approximately 55 lbs. He was purchased 4 years ago by a family that pretty much kept him in a crate and did not socialize him. He is doing wonderful in his foster home and loves to go to the dog park and romp with friends his size. He also does fine with friends his size in his home but not so well with little dogs. Young children make Cocoa nervous so he will need to go to an adult only home. Most importantly needs a calm…

Oliver! 8 month old mini Labradoodle available for adoption in Lake Tahoe CA. ADOPTED!

Oliver is a 28 lb. mini Labradoodle that was originally purchased from a man outside a fast food restaurant by a family with 3 children under the age of 5. Like all puppies Oliver had razor sharp teeth and nails and like all puppies loved to bite, taste, and chew on anything and anyone that came within reach. This perfectly normal behavior soon landed Oliver in the back yard where he stayed for 4 months until his owner decided to sell him on Craigslist.

Luckily a nice couple…

Meet Carson - Medium Size Goldendoodle in Northern California

Carson was found wandering the streets of San Francisco until one of the shelter volunteers captured and rescued him. Unfortunately, his hair was so dirty and matted, that he had to be completely shaved to the skin.  After three weeks in the shelter, he was released to my husband and I on October 21st.  In the three weeks he has been in our home, he has come a very long way.  Initially terrified of loud noises and vehicles passing by, he is now calmly walking along the roadside in a…

Meet Louie - one of DRC's newest foster doodles

Mr. Louie is a ten month old doodle puppy who has unfortunately had two homes already in his short life.  He is a typical doodle puppy - needing lots of attention and room to run!  He shared his last home with five other dogs and no fenced yard for him to play in and the poor guy just wanted room to play.


Since he arrived at his foster home he has had lots of room to run with his foster brothers.  He had a look of pure joy when he first got off leash and could run around all…

Meet Max! An adorable 11 month old vizsla-poodle mix that was surrendered to the local animal services because his family did not have the time for him. Personally, I think Max was an outdoor dog. He craves being close to his family but at the same time isn't overly clingy. He already learned sit and is getting better good with "down". He is crate trained 100% now and will go in there during the day when I am home to sleep! Max is learning potty manners however he has had only two accidents…
