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 death.

These dogs were described as three, 4 month old Labradoodle puppies, an…

Lacey update - it has been a week of break throughs.

What an amazing week it has been. It started last Saturday after Lacey and I came back from our morning run. DH was sitting on the couch enjoying his Saturday morning coffee when Lace trots into the room and hops on the couch with him. Granted she made sure that she did not face him or look at him, but she quietly inched her way over to him so her back end was snuggled up…

Lacey is finally done convalescing

Today we visited the wonderful folks at Santa Marietta Animal Hospital for one final heartworm test and to have Lacey's stitches removed from being spayed.  I am happy to say that Lacey finally has a clean bill of health.  Dr. McLean checked Lacey's heart again and no sign of the heart murmur she had we she joined us.  So the murmur was indeed the result of the heart worms.

To celebrate Lacey and I took our first out in public walk.  It was just "she and me" time.  We went to Roswell…

Bart, the new doodle rescue

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…

Sweet Sonny the Goldendoodle...looking for his forever family!

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…

Adopting Doodle

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,

Lisa Rab…

Rudy Adopted and moving to his new Kingdom

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.…

Yankee Doodle joined his forever family!!!

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…

Chelsea Got the Zoomies

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,…

Meet Chance

I just can't say enough about Chance, my latest foster.  Chance came to live with me and my fur boys on Saturday from his foster Mom Kristen in Alabama.  Kristen is getting married this week and was going to have to board Chance while all that was taking place.  But as the DRC volunteers always do, she put him first and put out a call for a home.  That's where Jeannine and Jacquie came in, and me, too.


Chance, so I was told,  suffers from separation anxiety when he is the…

Finally some Lola pictures

Well, it is usually the black doodles that are hard to get good pictures of but the illusive Lola has been camera shy for almost a month now.  In the last few days she has let me snap a few and we thought we would share.  (It's not that she is really that shy around the camera, I just find myself enjoying playtime and forgetting to grab the camera.)


Lola is sweet as ever, she makes friends with every person she meets - children and adults - and is especially fond of those…

Meet Christy Lu...yes, that is her

I was able to get some extra photos of Christy today while she was smiling for the camera! It's tough, getting good pics of black doodles, but she's a champ; she put up with me (and with a little help from my daughter, Katie). I've decided that "Christy-Lu" is…

I have the BEST DOG in the WHOLE WORLD and he's not mine!

Brewster has been through so much in the last 13 days and has taken everything in stride.  The morning (Sun) after we arrived home his scrotum (balls) was the size of a softball, off to emergency we went he had a horrible infection.  Mon. off to my vet we went for a check up only to find out that he has a foxtail in his ear almost to the point of puncturing his eardrum, blood test needed as he had no body mass.  Foxtail removal has to wait until he's healthy.  Blood test came back GOOD! …

Rudy the red doodle!

Rudy the red F1bb labradoodle foster arrived at our home on Sunday night. He is a puppy ( although at 45 lbs) and 26 inches tall ( at the shoulder), you wouldn't believe he is only 11 months old.

Rudy is a re-home. He was purchased from a very reputable breeder in VA and taken to a home with an older doodle.  Rudy has the typical puppy energy and got into some elastic that caused him to have emergency surgery, not once but twice. He was returned to the breeder who gave him to DRC to…
