Labradoodle Rescue & Goldendoodle Rescue
Last month, DRC was contacted by a volunteer representative of a high kill shelter located in the southern tip of Texas on the Mexican border. We were asked if we could help save 6 young "Labradoodles" from certain…Continue
Wow! It has been a little over 2 weeks since we brought Norman to his forever family. I've been meaning to sit down and post for a while now, but we've been trying to get back to our pre-Norman schedule & it has been a little bit of an adjustment.
We had him two months, so he had plenty of time for his skin to heal. We're definitely missing him at our house, but we could not have asked for a better family for him!
He has a new big brother, a Great Pyrenees,…Continue
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…Continue
My husband drove for hours and hours to Georgia to pick up our new puppy (just 7 weeks old!), because he couldn't wait for one to be available in Florida. I was against the idea from the start after losing our 18 year old mutt years before, but I was outvoted.
By the time he got back home, puppy (no name yet) was sick from the car ride, and afraid to walk on our wood floors. It took us a week to figure out that Ginger, our first thought, was the best name for her. She grew up so fast I…
When Lilly woke up on Saturday morning she didn't know it was going to be such a big day for her. You see, her family had relocated recently to a smaller home without a fenced yard and she was not a happy doodle girl. Her mom could see how sad Lilly was, not being able to play in a yard or just sit on the deck and watch the squirrels, so it was with sadness of her own that she contacted DRC to help find Lilly the perfect family to bring the sparkle back to Lilly's eyes.
We honestly don't know Tanner's heritage. We have listed him as a poodle/golden retriever mix.
But he could be just about any poodle mix. …Continue
Well, Luna continues to be prove herself to be one of the sweetest doodles I've ever fostered. She certainly still has her issues...and lots of them...but I definitely see small pockets of progress.
On January 16th, Luna started her heartworm treatment. She'd been on doxycycline for five weeks prior to that initial injection. Luna is my first heartworm positive dog and I just didn't know what to expect. Would she be in pain? (yes, a bit - it's a large, deep injection) Would…Continue
We went to the dog park this morning to have some fun...
Looks like someone is ready for a nap. …
This is probably the final Cash blog I’ll do. He’ll be leaving for his forever home in a couple of weeks. We have loved being part of this guy’s life for the past few months, and he is now part of our forever memories. He’s managed to snuggle his way into our hearts.
I think the first dog you foster is probably the hardest because you aren’t prepared for the mixed emotions as they leave your care and move on. You watch them bloom from the fearful, confused rescue animal to a…
Gus has been with us for three full weeks now. He's really starting to feel secure here and he and Mater have become great buddies. But he definitely wants to be the alpha dog of the two and Mater isn't used to that. I think perhaps it comes from Gus having been altered much later in life while Mater and most of his friends were less than a year when they were neutered. Gus is a leg lifter and scent spreader, for certain. I keep trying to teach him not to water my…Continue
You can’t keep a good Labradoodle down. We are learning that as we try to keep Gus calm and without any stress on his heart or lungs as the heartworm treatment does its job. Gus is still a puppy at heart and playing in the sprinklers on a hot day fills him with such a joyous exuberance for life that it’s hard to stop him. (Photo clip from video is attached.)…
