Doodle is another one of those rescue dogs who has gone through a life time of experiences in just a very short time. He has been moved from home to home, neglected and unfortunately abused. He was bounced around on Craig's List and consistently misunderstood. The veterinarian, on our Second Chance Dogs' board of directors, determined that Doodle had temporary internal damages due to being kicked very hard. That was the reason why he would snap if someone tried to pick him up...HE WAS IN PAIN. He has been responding beautifully to medications and routine chiropractor visits.
This little guy is going to need someone who will continue to add to our rescue group's ground work of increasing Doodle's socialization skills. He is dog friendly, all sizes. He is not a good match for children. With guidance and a true heart for those who have been mistreated, there are many people who would be a good fit for Doodle. He is a companion dog and simply looking for security and love that is returned.
