Hi Diane! We live just down I-95 from you in Stafford. We'll be looking in earnest to be a forever home to a doodle in mid-July. Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you hear of anything in our area. We are primarily looking for an adult -- my mom lives with us who has mobility issues, so she could easily be tripped by a puppy. We also have a 6-year-old. Thanks!
He is 18 mos old. Michelle saw him on Craigs List for $300. The family no longer wanted him due to the addition of twins in their family. She said he was terribly matted. He had not been neutered. Michelle had him neutered, he has all his vacinations, and she gave him a great haircut. Our other labradoodle was adopted from a family with a new baby, also. What is it with doodles and babies? Well, their loss is truly our gain. We love him deeply, already, in just one week. He and his sister doodle drink from the same water bowl together, side by side, and eat from each other dishes. He is made for our family!
We took the chance and drove 6 1/2 hours to KLR and found our sweet Rory, which we renamed Riga. He is the loveliest, sweetest bundle of doodle I have ever met. All the dogs seemed happy and not desperate. Although it is in the middle of no where, it was well worth our travel. Michelle was wonderful and I felt confident adopting from KLR. Thanks for the advice, Dianne.
We live in Indianapolis, but are always up for a drive! I keep hoping that we'll get a foster ourselves that will turn out to be "the one" that fits our family too perfectly to let go. We thought our first foster, Gus, might be - but we know he's perfect in his new home. I know we could go buy another puppy (almost did), but somehow I feel so much better about rescuing these wonderful babies. The right #2 for us will happen, I'm sure.
