Meet Oliver! A Labradoodle available in Tampa, FL

Meet Oliver! An adorable labradoodle available in Tampa, FL. Oliver's owner surrendered him to DRC when they realized they didnt have the time required for a puppy. He is 52 lbs and almost 10 months old.

His amazing foster family says:

He is very gentle, very sweet. He's timid at first, and an observer at a distance for all new things and everything seems to be new for him. I think his life was very sheltered before. Loves to be nearby all the time once he…

Meet Brody - one of DRC's newest doodles!

Brody has been hanging with the boys of Oxford, MI for a few weeks now and has learned so much. He's five years old and has the energy and spunk of a puppy but settles in for snuggles after playtime. This sweetie can play ball for hours - although the poor stuffies only last minutes.

Brody hadn't been to the vet in several years but he is all caught up now and a healthy boy, weighing in at 65 pounds. He has a beautiful coat of many colors - black, silver and even some dark…

Do-it-yourself rehoming is not in the best interests of any dog. DRC sees many doodles who have been passed from home to home as a result of having been "rehomed" via Craig's List and similar ad sites, as well as through Facebook "yard sale" type groups. In all of these cases, there is no safety net for the dog if the adoption doesn't work out. In most cases, the dogs are not properly evaluated to determine what type of environment would be best for the individual dog, references are not…
