Labradoodle Rescue & Goldendoodle Rescue
My pack has a new foster brother, Coal, and boy is he one sweetheart. He's a gentle spirited guy who LOVES walking outdoors on a leash and running with other dogs. He also loves tennis balls and we are teaching him to catch and fetch. He now can catch nicely from about 3 feet away and he seems so proud of himself!
He is timid and shy.... loud noises and sudden movements frighten him. He acts just like a dog who has been abused and neglected. However, that life is now behind him. DRC will find him his LAST HOME!!!!!! With the help of a wonderful animal trainer he is learning life skills he hasn't yet been taught. He's actually tall and lanky, only weighing in at 46 lb. He can be a little stinker and scoop up anything I happen to leave in the kitchen sink or on the counter. Hence last evening after I made myself a bagel with cream cheese and left the foil wrapper on the kitchen counter. He proudly pranced into the living room with his foil treat in his mouth. I went into action, getting some savory chicken (rotissarie) and passing it under his nose and then throwing the chicken over my shoulder so Coal immediately left his foil prize for the tastier chicken. We are teaching him to no longer resource guard and that he will always be safe and well fed. It is a process however our sweet boy is already on the honor roll!
Did I tell you that he is also a prize kisser? When I sit on the floor with him he promptly rewards me with sweet slobbery doodle kisses on the face. I never knew my ears are ticklish until Coal decided to kiss them nonstop.
