Brody my new foster in St Petersburg, Florida :)

 

Hi everyone! Meet Brody a 5 year old labradoodle that's a recent owner surrender into the DRC program in Florida. Prior to joining DRC Brody lived with three kids all under the age of 12 (5, 6, and 12). His family decided to rehome him after realizing their busy lifestyles with kids in various after school activities left poor Brody alone too many hours of the day.

 

Brody is completely house trained and according to his family, has never destroyed anything in the home when left alone. He slept on his own bed either in the family room or in the parent's room. Because I have a small 10 lb dog I am currently crating Brody when I am not home and he LOVES his crate.

 

 

Brody seems to be an F1B because he doesn't shed although right now he does have a short hair cut. He lets me brush him with no issues and will lay on his back for belly rubs. Although he isn't tall Brody is stocky and weighs approximately 70 lbs. He is up to date with shots and neutered :)

 

Brody is low energy in the house and lays around and sleeps most of the day. When he goes out on the yard he will run around for a little bit but tires quickly and wants to come in/lay on the grass :). He is learning how to play with other dogs. Although his family said he had no issues with other dogs both big and small and used to play with the neighborhood dogs with no issues at my house Brody is very vocal when he plays with my goldendoodle which tends to scare him (HOWEVER.. my doodle scares easily so it's not entirely Brody's fault lol). Brody does seem to be an alpha dog and attached VERY quickly to me and follows me everywhere I go. The family mentioned they have never taken him to a dog park or dog beach. I haven't had the chance to take him yet so I am not sure how he'd do there.

 

 

Brody knows sit, paw, down and go to bed :) He had a benign tumor on his tail which they amputated when he was around 3 years old so now he has a cute stubby tail. He is a known counter surfer who will play fetch but needs to work on dropping the ball on command. He is known to de-stuff his toys :) His family said he is not fond of cats.

 

Brody does need some work walking nicely on a leash. He was not taught not to jump to greet people but we have been working on it since he got here last Tuesday and he's already pretty much stopped jumping with us. He definitely needs a strong pack leader. Someone who will set boundaries re: jumping, how to greet people and other dogs, etc. I would love for Brody to get a home with a fenced in yard since this is something he's never had. Also, I believe he would be best in a home with no children or possibly children that are much older who will not get him agitated when they're running around with their friends. Brody seems to be an alpha dog so he will need doggie friends that understand this and are ok with it :)

If you would like to adopt Brody please visit www.doodlerescue.org & fill out an adoption application :)

Alma, adoptions and adoption status are handled solely through the rescue email, not here on the website. If you would like to be considered for Brody or any other dog, the first step is to submit an application. 

However, we do not ever hold dogs for anyone, for any reason. It doesn't sound like you are going to be in a position to adopt for quite awhile, (definitely more than a month), especially if that included a drive from St. Louis to St. Petersburg, and a 15 hour, 1000+ mile drive might not be in Brody's best interests, either.  There are lots and lots of dogs in the Midwest who need homes, I am sure you will find lots of them closer to home when the time is right and you have recovered from your surgery and subsequent rehab. I hope it goes well.

Brody is awesome. We have been looking for a doodle for a short time with the intention of adopting in a month or so, as I am about to have knee replacement surgery this week. How can I stay up to date on Brody's status? We live in Chesterfield MO (St. Louis) and I don't think I will be able to sit in a car for that long of a drive for awhile. Brody would fit into our lives perfectly as I am retired and my husband works from home. Our children are grown and our 8 grandchildren (4yrs. to 20 yrs.) don't all live in Missouri. I am a walker and we have a dog park very nearby. He even looks like our dog, Raisin, who lived to be 16 years old. I will keep watch on your blog but if there is anything else I can do, please let me know. Thanks for taking Brody into your home.
