Hi Kit, You probably don't know me, but I've been around the Zoo for more than 12 years. In fact, I adopted my two labradoodles Pete and Syd after finding the Zoo and falling in love with all the cute doodles. Alas, they're aging fast just like all the other doodles from that time period. I don't have much free time, so I only post occasionally. I checked in when possible through the years and know both Travis and Maggie's stories. I'm so sorry for all you've been through.

Anyway, I live in SE PA and volunteer at two wonderful rescues, LaMancha and Greenmore Farm. We often get the cutest puppies from the Deep South, but they go quickly. We just had a litter at one of the rescues that any doodle lover would have fallen in love with - all goofy, lovable fluff balls that were adopted as soon as they were posted on the adoption websites. Last year we got a litter of 11 (!) labradoodle puppies that our rescue bought from someone who was selling them from the back of pickup truck in a WalMart parking lot in Alabama.

Please check out both rescues if you're interested and put in applications. Potential adopters usually apply when no puppies are available, get approved, and wait for a litter to come in that have the traits they're looking for. I'd be happy to keep a watch out and let you know when any come in that might meet your criteria. Both rescues put their puppies on PetFinder and Adopt-A-Pet when they're ready for adoption, but puppies often arrive at the rescue when they're too young to be adopted out.

My sweet labradoodles are a bonded pair and both have been ill. Last year I got really worried that one would pass away and the other would be grief stricken. I decided to adopt a two year old shepherd mix who had been dumped in Kentucky and lived for more than 6 months on her own. It was the best decision I ever made - she brought new life and joy into our house and my two doodles just love her. Now I know that the remaining doodle will be ok if one passes away.

I hope you won't feel like I'm pushing you to get a puppy from a rescue. Just throwing out another option. If you really want a goldendoodle puppy, then go for it! All the best, Stacey

P.S. I ticked my email if you want to get in touch with me.

      • I have to know going into whatever our next dog family member is, it is not Travis or Maggie, but itself. And not all GDs are going to be like Travis. Actually, I need to look for a temperament... more
