Labradoodle Rescue & Goldendoodle Rescue
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 on this site. We feel so blessed that he came into our lives. He is our first rescue and we are delighted to have him.
The transition is going great. The only struggle we have is with the cats. He has made great progress but we still catch him getting “fixated” on them and wanting to chase them. Any suggestions on helping Oliver understand that the cats are not play things would be greatly appreciated. We don’t expect them to be best friends just want everyone to coexists happily.
To anyone currently on the journey to rescue a doodle hang in there. It was an exhausting and emotional process. There were a few times when we got our hopes up but someone beat us to the dog we thought was “the one”. When it is right it will happen!
