Meet Hershey - my last foster. Is that not a face to love???  Hershey has been with my pack for about 5 weeks now and fits in like he was born to it.  Hershey is a 1 1/2 year old chocolate Labradoodle (with a touch of white on his chest and a little gotee) that was found as a stray in a shelter in south Georgia.  Can't say that he barks with a southern accent because in that time I've only heard him bark twice and both were while playing at our dog park.  When he wants something, tho, he can whine.

 

Hershey loves chasing tennis balls, going for car rides, and of course, having you love on him (or vice versa).  He is really affectionate!  He has to have been someone's pet at least for a while because he walks great on a leash and knows "sit" without being told.  Unfortunately Hershey's tennis ball chasing days are on hold because he's heartworm positive.  Fortunately, Nina, our Georgia Director, found the only vet in the world that still had the short term heartworm meds in stock and Hershey began his shots last week.  Bounced back like a pro with no side effects.  He also loves to just chill around the house so that makes things alot easier for him and me.  My pack and he get along great, as does he with the other dogs in our condo complex with whom he has played before house arrest.  Once he was neutered the "desire" to love on the ladies has stopped (for which I am sure they are grateful). 

 

Well, just wanted to say "Hey" (for you Northerners that's southern for "hello" or Hi").

Owww he is the cutest thing. The back leg thing is something that Riley does as well but I thought it was because he has such a big butt. Do you mean this is an actual doodle trait?

Hershey is a cutie and I love the way he sits with his back feet spread out and his front feet close together.  Thank you for helping him get through HW treatments and find his loving forever home.

Thanks, Hershey just looks really small in the picture and I know rescue doesn't get minis very often.  I remember Winston.  What a cutie he was.  Ned is 17" (officially medium) and Clancy is only 19" tall.  (Clancy is very stocky though and weighs 65 pounds!)

He's about 22 inches to his front shoulder.  Trying to get him to stand still to measure is next to impossible.  I had a mini foster - Winston and Hershey is definately bigger/taller than a mini but not much larger.  Compared to my standard goldendoodle seen in the pix he's about 1 -2 inches shorter but weighs more.  If that helps.

Hershey looks like a mini in the photo.  How big is he?

He is just darling.  I am so glad that he was able to get the short-term heartworm meds.

He's adorable! Thanks for taking such good care of him!
