Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
It is really, really important that the next home be the last home for this poor doodle. If they choose to rehome her themselves, rather than through a rescue group, they must make sure that the new family is absolutely committed to keeping her, no matter what.
She won't learn to trust again until she has a permanent stable environment, a consistent routine, and an adult person she can depend upon.
this is so sad for the doodle. I hope they decide to go through a rescue organization who can better assess her needs and vet applicants.
I agree with both Nancy and Karen. I do not know how many times can a dog handle being rehomed. And, if she really did bite and not just nip the 2 nurses it would be best for her to be handled by a rescue organization that could place her with a responsible, experienced dog person prepared to work with her and hopefully be willing to guarantee a forever placement.
Not the first thing I wanted to see here today but I know it's a fact of life. I wonder how long this family has had her? Poor baby! Knowing that she bit is going to take a very committed person, perhaps an older single with no children.
I know what it's like to have a dog that bites and frankly it is not that difficult to keep the dog out of the situation but you truly must really love the dog as we did.
I wish the sun and the moon and the starts for this girl!
This is truly sad. It is going to take a special person to provide this Doodle girl with what she needs. Because she has already learned to bite, whoever adopts her is going to need to understand how to relate to her, and will need to be in a position to provide training/behavioral support. This going to be a big commitment for someone....I so hope the right owner is out there for her. This is what happens when these poor dogs get shuffled around.
Sorry to see this happening. This is very sad. I was wondering about the circumstances surrounding the biting. As she has "only" bitten the nurses. Perhaps she has become bonded with the child and this was protective or to get their attention due to a problem. I am sure that she give the child happiness that is otherwise hard to find.
Instead of rehoming maybe these people would be better off investing in TRAINING for the doodle.
(Yes I do realize that these people have a lot on their plate but I also know how much joy a dog can bring to a child that has "special needs".)
