Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
Hi friends. My name is Lucinda. I'm part of a family of four. My husband Peter and I have two little boys Gray and Magnus. They are 6 and 3. We also have Sooty, our fluffy black cat. As I wrote in my bio, we had the most wonderful Goldendoodle, Anna Nicole. (AKA Nanners) She was the BEST doggie. I had wanted a dog for as long as I could remember. My parents never allowed it. Finally at 27 years old I got my puppy, and she was my shadow. Tragically we lost her at the young, young age of 3. She had a complication of Lyme disease and fell into kidney failure. Within one week of diagnosis she was gone. It was the worst week of my life.
Cut to 7 months later, we are really hoping to add another Doodle to our family. We are home a lot, but would rather bypass the super young puppy phase, plus we'd like to rescue a dog in need of a home. We live in Maryland, outside of D.C. If anyone hears of a cat and kid loving Doodle, that is somewhat close (like not in Texas or California) could you please keep us in your thoughts? There only seem to be a few on the Doodle Rescue and they are either pending or super far. Doodles on Pet Finder go incredibly fast too, and are never near our part of the country!
Thanks so much for any help, we really appreciate it. Have a great night, and bury your face in your Doodle's head tonight for me. I miss that soft, curly fluff. :'-)
Please contact DRC. http://doodlerescuecollectiveinc.org/
There are many wonderful, older doodles available!!!
I am so sorry about your beloved Anna Nicole....
Hi Lucinda - my heart goes out to you for your loss. I agree with Kyoko to keep in touch with www.doodlerescuecollectiveinc.org Even if they aren't right in your area, often a doodletrain can be arranged to help transport.
Good luck, I hope you find your new furry family member soon!!
In addition to DRC and IDOG, you may consider visiting the Annapolis Area doodles webpage. http://www.annapolisareadoodles.com/
Often times people contact Lisa, the group leader, if they have to rehome their doodle or when they see one in a local shelter. There have actually been more emails lately about dogs needing homes. I know that there is also a DC doodles group, but I am not on their email list.
Good luck! We got Yoda at the Annapolis SPCA and he is the best dog ever!
Also on the Doodle Rescue site there is listings of doodles being re-homed, at shelters or other rescues that are not fostered with them. You can find the listing under Doodles in Need and it's broken into regions. Good Luck
