Story
This beautiful and playful F1b Golden Doodle is available to a good and loving home located in greater Cincinnati area. He is about 12 weeks old. He currently weighs about 20 lbs and more than likely will weigh about 35-40 lbs when full grown. His mother was a 35 lb Goldendoodle, father was a 25 pound poodle. He is very sweet and lovable. Also, loves belly rubs on his white patch. The tip of his tail is white too! He is crate trained and will easily go in to nap or at bedtime. Potty training is going fairly well. He loves to run and play, so would do well with a fenced- in yard. We will provide his crate, towels, food, grooming, food,and toys. Also, he has been seen by our vet and up to date on all puppy vaccines,bordetella, worming. We paid $1200 when getting him from a breeder, but due to unforseen human medical issues, we are looking for a good home.

Story
In need of a very special adopter. Roberta was brought to the shelter along with her puppies as part of an animal cruelty case. Initially, she was very protective of them and would refuse interactions when they were around. After they were big enough to be separated she has shown some improvement, but she is still very, very scared when interacting with handlers, especially strangers. With staff members she's familiar with, she has started to show some comfort and affection, but she is still going to be a project dog. She is someone who will need a quiet home, where she will have plenty of time to settle in and get used to all of her new people, without the stress of constant strangers.
