Kash is a 2 year old goldendoodle saved from craigslist.

As you can see from the photos he is undernourished (you can see every one of his rib bones!).…

Do-it-yourself rehoming is not in the best interests of any dog. DRC sees many doodles who have been passed from home to home as a result of having been "rehomed" via Craig's List and similar ad sites, as well as through Facebook "yard sale" type groups. In all of these cases, there is no safety net for the dog if the adoption doesn't work out. In most cases, the dogs are not properly evaluated to determine what type of environment would be best for the individual dog, references are not…

Eight Years Together

Eight years ago this week, the person who bought JD from a pet store as a puppy left him at a shelter and never came back.

The reasons he was relinquished were vague. Something about a job change, I was told. 

I was also told that the man carried JD (who was 14 months old and weighed 69…

Doodle Dream Come True!

A few weeks ago a new doodle joined our family! We rescued Oliver the Labradoodle from the shelter in Conroe, Tx almost 3 weeks ago. Our family could not be more thrilled. He gets along great with Brady our goldendoodle and he is such a joy. We do not know much about his past but it is clear that he did not have the best first 2 years of his life. Every day he blossoms a little bit more and manages to capture even more of our hearts. Oliver was actually listed on the doodles in need section…

Catalog Shopping for a Doodle! (Re-posted from DoodleKisses)

Many things bug me in life.  Just ask my family.  I am very vocal about the things that irritate me and many of my family members can often be heard saying, “Give it a rest, grousemeister!”  Grouse isn’t really the word they use, but it sounds nicer than the actuality.  My mom also used to say, “if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all,” but I have found when I really get going when something bugs me, it wouldn’t be fair to my family to just clam up and keep my opinions to…

Wanted: Perfect Doodle

I originally posted this blog on DoodleKisses and a couple of people asked me to cross post the blog here!


When we got Fudge, I don’t remember what research I did on the computer regarding Doodles, but I remember the no shedding was the icing on the cake.  I had spent years vacuuming up after two Labs and for a short haired dog, those dogs shed like nobody’s business.  A Labradoodle seemed like the…

Off My Chest

I don't get it.

We have some wonderful, adorable dogs who have been with us in foster care for weeks, and nobody is applying for them or even inquiring about them. Sweet, adorable adult dogs who are already housebroken and are past the chewing, nipping, sock-eating crazy puppy stage. (You know that stage between 6 and 12 months when the people who got puppies without having a clue what that entails in terms of time, work, commitment, etc. give them up to rescues?)

Day after…
