Georgie is my newest foster.  He's a sweet male goldendoodle that was rescued by DRC two weeks ago here in Georgia. 

The picture below shows him pre-haircut because I wasn't sure what was under his very curly white coat.  When he's grown out he looks like a walking cotton ball. 

He's a great little dog and he fits right in with my pack easily.  He's definitely on the small size - the shelter said he weighed 38 lbs two weeks ago.  Since that time he's been on a walking regime (3x a day unless it rains - he's not fond of the rain), and a twice a day feeding diet.  Don't know if he's lost any weight but he sure is getting in shape. 

Have to say that he's not fond of my cats but after this time he doesn't bark at them as much as he first did and other than barking he has never tried to hurt one.  I believe that he was someone's pet before being picked up as a stray.  He knows to walk on the right side when we walk and he allows me to use a gentle leader without any problem.  He knows the command "go lay down" and we are working on sit.  He also knows where the kitchen is and when it is meal time.  He just started playing with a ball and mainly entertains himself until my doodle Emmett takes the ball away (Emmett only plays with a ball when another dog has it). 

 

Georgie does seem to suffer from separation anxiety but only when he knows I'm home and he can't find me.  Right now he's velcro but getting more comfortable.  When I leave him home with my boys there is never been a problem.  I had a crate for a short time when I got him and he would voluntarily go in it to sleep but forget about trying to have him sleep all night in it so he sleeps on a blanket in my bedroom all night without a problem and without a peep. 

He is really a sweet dog but I do think he needs either people home with him all the time or another dog for a companion to help with his anxiety (and perhaps that will end when he is fully comfortable in his forever home).  I've attached some pictures of him so to get a better idea of his size.  Again, he's a really sweet calm guy and if I didn't already have 2 dogs, 2 cats and 6 chickens he would be a keeper.

I see that this was posted a while back, but Georgie is still listed as an adoptable Doodle. Do you still have him?

Well, if nobody could be unselfish enough to risk shedding a few tears to save a dog's life, we couldn't save them, and s lot of dogs like Georgie would die in kill shelters. Fostering saves lives.

He is adorable.  He is going to make someone very happy.
