Just wondering what the status is on Daisy.  I was emailed asking if I was interested in fostering her and never heard back.  Did you find a temporary home for her or did the owner change his/her…Continue

"Ok he is totally a cute ball. But in one or two of those pics, he does look a little "porky" but your good care will get him looking svelte in no time at all."

"People get doodles thinking they are going to sit on the shelf waiting to be played with. I mean they look like teddy bears, so of course they must act like stuffed animals"

Fozzi's weekly update

Maggie and Fozzi are now pretty comfortable with each other.  They take turns chewing on bones.......that says quite a bit.  Fozzi had a rough week in the sense that he wasn't eating much and his tummy was making some strange sounds.  Couldn't figure out what was wrong with him.  He would eat a bit and then stop.  Finally, the night before last I go upstairs to find that Fozzi had thrown up and entire sock.  It wasn't even chewed up.  I have no idea how he could get it down, let alone get it…See More

"Still a bit concerned about Fozzi. He didn't eat much breakfast and very little dinner. His stomach makes terrible sounds after he eats."

"Mattie goes nuts when people come to the house--lots of jumping and running around--but not when we are out as TDI--it is a quieter situation and it is not home, so she reacts differently. Of course, i did wait until she was 4 1/2 to take her…"

"Ginny, I really want to get Maggie certified as a therapy dog this summer, but I'm a bit concerned she might be overwhelming when she greets people. She's very, very friendly, but well trained in everything else."

Profile Information

Where are you located?
Illinois
Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
I am a middle school teacher in a rural community. I am married with two independent children and one 17 year old daughter still at home. I love being outside.
Tell us about your dog(s) and/or other pets that you have:
My husband and I had two golden retrievers, Libby passed away from cancer two years ago, and we had to put our 14 year old Sadie down about a month ago. We decided to bring another puppy into our home last summer in order to help with the transition of saying goodbye to Sadie. So, Maggie entered our home. She is a beautiful, 10 month old female F1 goldendoodle. She is now the love of our lives.
Have you read our adoption policies?
We purchased Maggie from a reputable breeder. It was apparent that he loved his dogs and made sure every dog was able to run about and play. They were romping and playing as we were looking around. I wanted a doodle because I wanted a dog who would eventually become a therapy dog. Maggie is low shedding, very friendly, extremely quick to learn, and a clown!!!
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how?
Now that I have more free time (empty nester), and my summers are free, I would really like to get involved with animal rescue. I am not sure to what degree I can be of assistance, but I really want to do something. I love to work with animals of any kind, but doodles have become my passion. My husband and I are also looking for a companion for Maggie, but I would prefer to adopt rather than go through a breeder this time.

Mattie goes nuts when people come to the house--lots of jumping and running around--but not when we are out as TDI--it is a quieter situation and it is not home, so she reacts differently. Of course, i did wait until she was 4 1/2 to take her around--she has less energy now. If you can try her out at a place other than home, it may make a difference. When we trained, we did a lot of work on "say Hi"--and then made them sit quietly while we greeted people. I think she goes into that mode when we are at the facilities. It is surprising to see the different behaviors they can exhibit.

Is Maggie full size? or is she a mini Goldendoodle?  She looks like our foster, Pippin, that may be our first foster failure.  I'm in love with him!

These photos are from Henry's original owner, back in November. He has lost 7 lbs since these were taken.

Welcome, Debra! Thank you for wanting to volunteer! I'm the Illinois director and Placement director, and we are very short of volunteers here in Illinois!
