I just picked up my 4th foster doodle for DRC yesterday evening. I haven't blogged about any of my other fosters because I'm not sure how good I will be at it. Y'all do such a good job at it :). But, I have heard that the potential adopters love to read about their potential new pets so, here goes...

My 3 kiddos and I drove the hour-plus down to Granbury, Texas to pick up an owner surrender doodle. Poor guy was so freaked out to be in the car with strangers. I also don't think he had much car riding experience either.

When we got him home, we let him sniff around the front and backyards to get the feel of his new surroundings. Then, I introduced him to my two dogs, Lexi and Figgins and then to my foster, Inky. I was relieved to see that all 4 dogs got along from the start. They ran and played for about 40 minutes until it began to get dark.

Sawyer got his first bath from me and flea/tick prevention last night as well. He did great and after the bath settled in with my "pack" for an evening of chewing bones and running around the house. He slept in a crate in my bedroom last night and did fairly well...only cried a few times and then settled back down.

I am pleasantly surprised to find out that Sawyer is completely housebroken since when I picked him up he was being kept in an outside dog run.

We have a busy day ahead today...we are going to go to the vet to have him checked out and heartworm tested. I'm crossing my fingers that he is heartworm negative. Sawyer is also gettin neutered on Friday.

He seems like such a sweet boy and I can't wait to see his personality come out as the days go on...pictures to come soon :).

Oh Sawyer...you are a lucky, lucky dood! Tracy and her pack are just what you need to get yourself on the path to your perfect forever home!

Tracy - thanks for all you do and please keep the posts coming! I look forward to hearing more about Sawyer and all of your fosters!

(I know I have a black dood bias, but I think Sawyer is incredibly handsome and I love his name!)

This is a great blog, and Sawyer sounds like a wonderful guy. Fingers and paws crossed for a great Vet check today.

He's 2 yrs. old and he's 65 pounds. I posted pictures on my page because I'm not sure how to post them on the blog...I'm a rookie :)

Your blog about Sawyer is just great. It makes me want to hear more. I would love to see pictures. How big is he? Do you know how old he is?
