Labradoodle Rescue & Goldendoodle Rescue
Last month, DRC was contacted by a volunteer representative of a high kill shelter located in the southern tip of Texas on the Mexican border. We were asked if we could help save 6 young "Labradoodles" from certain…Continue
It was fun just now to look back over the pictures of Pippin when we first rescued him. I really did fall in love with this little guy - 100% head over heals, and I still am. He is such a sweet, calm, loving dog. I wish I knew where he came from so I could tell others who meet him and want a dog just like him. Maybe he was just one of those special angels, dropped down just for us to find. It often seems that way. He is still just as cute as he was as a puppy and hasn't grown much…Continue
Wow! It has been a little over 2 weeks since we brought Norman to his forever family. I've been meaning to sit down and post for a while now, but we've been trying to get back to our pre-Norman schedule & it has been a little bit of an adjustment.
We had him two months, so he had plenty of time for his skin to heal. We're definitely missing him at our house, but we could not have asked for a better family for him!
He has a new big brother, a Great Pyrenees,…Continue
Maggie and Fozzi are now pretty comfortable with each other. They take turns chewing on bones.......that says quite a bit. Fozzi had a rough week in the sense that he wasn't eating much and his tummy was making some strange sounds. Couldn't figure out what was wrong with him. He would eat a bit and then stop. Finally, the night before last I go upstairs to find that Fozzi had thrown up and entire sock. It wasn't even chewed up. I have no idea how he could get it down, let alone get it…Continue
My husband drove for hours and hours to Georgia to pick up our new puppy (just 7 weeks old!), because he couldn't wait for one to be available in Florida. I was against the idea from the start after losing our 18 year old mutt years before, but I was outvoted.
By the time he got back home, puppy (no name yet) was sick from the car ride, and afraid to walk on our wood floors. It took us a week to figure out that Ginger, our first thought, was the best name for her. She grew up so fast I…
When Lilly woke up on Saturday morning she didn't know it was going to be such a big day for her. You see, her family had relocated recently to a smaller home without a fenced yard and she was not a happy doodle girl. Her mom could see how sad Lilly was, not being able to play in a yard or just sit on the deck and watch the squirrels, so it was with sadness of her own that she contacted DRC to help find Lilly the perfect family to bring the sparkle back to Lilly's eyes.
We honestly don't know Tanner's heritage. We have listed him as a poodle/golden retriever mix.
But he could be just about any poodle mix. …Continue
Well, Luna continues to be prove herself to be one of the sweetest doodles I've ever fostered. She certainly still has her issues...and lots of them...but I definitely see small pockets of progress.
On January 16th, Luna started her heartworm treatment. She'd been on doxycycline for five weeks prior to that initial injection. Luna is my first heartworm positive dog and I just didn't know what to expect. Would she be in pain? (yes, a bit - it's a large, deep injection) Would…Continue
We went to the dog park this morning to have some fun...
Looks like someone is ready for a nap. …
Yup, that would be me. I know you must be thinking “OMD! It can’t be true!” Ah, but I am happy to say that it is. Miss Lacey (formerly Lucy) has officially become one of the Whitefield Pack.
This poor, stoic girl has gone through so much in her short 3.5 years. First to be born in a puppy mill and then being bred every single time she came into heat just to line this a##&)*e’s pockets. Then to add insult to injury, once the puppy miller was done with her, he/she dumped this…
Tom and Carol Horner along with their two beautiful babies, Auggie and Oliver welcomed Elmo into their home recently. Carol has been kind enough to send me several emails along with photos to keep me informed on Elmo's progress. I am happy to report that Elmo is doing wonderfully and is charming everyone!! He has settled in nicely and gets along well with his new brothers, Ollie and Auggie. At his first visit to their Vet's office Carol wrote that Elmo charmed everyone there...clients…Continue
I got the message a few days ago that there was a doodle that needed rescuing from a shelter close to me, so of course, my only answer could be when, where? Oh the emotions running through my mind with this being my first rescue and foster! What joy! What fun! Than I went to the petfinder sight and the only thing they said about him was he does not like windshield wipers! What did I get myself in for! We arrived at the shelter, got the paper work done and am still wondering about this 77…Continue
Having lost our beloved Wheaten, Duffy, recently to PLE, a horrible disease, our family was feeling a big void. I'd always fostered while we had Duffy, so we figured - why not continue to do so until we are ready again for another forever doggie addition! So, on Mother's Day my gift was fostering sweet Sonny, the beautiful, graceful (he prances- literally!) 11 month old 'puppy' from a life in which he seemingly spent 24/7 in a crate. He didn't seem to know how to 'play', didn't know…Continue
Hello- I am a member of Doodle Rescue and have a black doodle, whom we rescued 2 years ago.....very best dog we have ever owned!
My daughter/son-in-law are looking for a doodle to adopt and we all live in Dallas TX. They really like the apricot color as well as the larger(standard) size, but would open to other doodles in need of a home.
Please contact me with any help in this regards!
Thanks so much,
Today Rudy met his new family, Ruth and her daughter Kat drove 8 hours yesterday, spent the night in a motel near me and arrived with a beautiful collar, leash and name tag!
Rudy showered them with his special kisses and even did some kangadoodling to show off. He is now on his way back to GA to meet his new brother Theo. Theo and Rudy, how perfect- just like the Cosby Show.…Continue
On Sunday, Yankee Doodle was adopted by a lovely couple in Villa Rica, GA. Wanda and Don lost their beloved pug, Dixie, a little over a year ago and decided they were ready to take the "plunge" and get another dog. They were drawn to Yankee for several reasons...their son has a labradoodle and they liked the breed, Wanda is a "Yankee" herself, Yankee doodle is on the small side, and they wanted a scruffy (more wiry) coated dog. On my part, I liked that they were experienced dog owners (and…Continue
Chelsea's personality is starting to come out. Chelsea played with a toy and chewed on a bone for the first time yesterday. This morning I let her outside with Clover and all of a sudden zoomies. At times Chelsea was spinning in a circle so fast all her paws were off the ground. Clover's head was going round and round trying to figure out how to join the fun. Watching them made the whole family laugh, what a great way to start the day.
This is why I foster. Watching a scared,…Continue
