LET'S SEE IF WE CAN DO SOME MATCHMAKING.
I'm looking for a youngish doodle (Goldendoodle or labradoodle) I'm don't care about the sex but I live in Manhattan in an apartment so I'm looking for a doodle on the small side. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Judy, you need to go through the listings and fill out applications. You should also go by Manhattan Acct as there have been many beautiful Oodles in there in the past few months.
Mini-doodles are very hard to find in rescue and doodles in general are not ideal apartment dogs. Even the little ones are very high energy and you might be hard pressed to find many rescues who will even adopt to apartment dwellers anywhere, let alone in Manhattan.
We had one in the Brooklyn shelter not too long ago and Long Island shelters see them once in awhile. But these dogs are not good apartment dogs unless you get them from tiny pups and they know no better. In that case, you would need to find a breeder as we really don't see pups very often in rescue.
Some things you might think about and do some more research. I would go by Acct and fill out an app. That way they will call you as soon as something comes in. Please do not discount poodles and poodle mixes. If the hair is allowed to grow out, you cannot tell the difference.
Let me know if I can help further.
Anyone have any other suggestions?
Hi. I'm not looking quite yet, but will be in the future. So, I wanted to do a quick intro. I am in Bethlehem, PA and would like a young or puppy golden or labradoodle. We have a 14 year old lab mix with cancer. We don't know how much longer he will be with us.
We will need a puppy that is very well socialized with kids and other dogs - we have a lake cabin in a very busy community. On the upside, the dog will have plenty of friends and exercise!!!!
Margaret, where are you located?
You do understand that in rescue it is sometimes difficult to know the personality of the dog until you met him or her and after a few weeks where she feels safe and loved. Unless you get one from a rescue where he has been living with a foster who may be able to access him, from a shelter it will be next to impossible to know his personality.
