Labradoodle Rescue & Goldendoodle Rescue
My sister has been looking for a doodle and I have been helping in the search. I saw a post on PF a couple of days ago for a schnoodle that was coming to a rescue here in NJ yesterday. This little boy who will be 6 months on the 23rd, has been living in a pet store until yesterday when the rescue pulled him. He wasn't wanted by anyone shopping so they put him in the back (why??) and he got a 'bit wild' so they reached out to the rescue to surrender him. The issue is that at 6 months old, he has no business not being able to run and play - not that any dog does but this is about Sonny.
My sister filled our an application and they asked her to foster to adopt. Since this is their first dog as a family, that is a perfect situation for everyone.
Sonny is delicious! Adorable! He really looks like a GD puppy with a cropped tail and his high ears. He has a typical doodle wiggle butt. Since he has never heard a TV until yesterday or walked on grass, everything is a new, exciting and a bit scary.
Pottying outside and on the grass?? Really - on the grass and not in my cage?? New concept but he is picking it up quickly. My sister has 2 boys - 9 and 11. They truly are great kids and they understand the concept of being responsible for a puppy - they have already learned how to use poop bags!! They don't know how lucky they are that Sonny is a little boy. WOL! They already called me to ask me what they can do to let him know that pottying outside is the right thing to do since he has no idea about treats so, for now, treats don't mean anything to sonny. My sister bought him this little green frog that he loves to thrash around. I told them that they should carry it in their pocket at potty time and when he is done with his business, toss it to him. That is his treat.. Got another call, it worked! He was so happy!!! I hope that in a few days he will get that part of being part of family down pat.
I have a feeling that my sister will become a member of the Foster Failure group.
