Charlies previous owner approached DoodleAid in desperate need, she had adopted Charlie almost two weeks before from a rescue centre, sadly she hadn’t been given a full history of Charlie and it soon became apparent that Charlie couldn’t live with her existing dog Betty. Through fear he had become quite aggressive towards her and very stressed in the situation. His owner was devastated to have to give him up, we tried to work with them and a behaviourist but it soon became clear that neither Charlie or Betty could cope the best thing would be to separate them.
Monty came to DoodleAids attention when he was advertised on a selling site, DoodleMaina and Doodles Do Splashes and Dashes group members came together to for a rescue mission to collect him and deliver him safely to his foster home. DoodleAid set about an emergency fund raiser for Monty, raising in excess of £600 in a matter of hours!
Molly, through no fault of her own, found herself needing a new forever home.
DoodleAid set out to find her and wonderful home, following a home check that home was with the lovely McCrindle family. This wonderful family have been through really sad times and their doodles have helped them with love and comfort along his difficult journey. Here's what they had to say about their experience with DoodleAid and what Molly means to them,
Flora (aka Dora) was rescued by her previous owner from a Facebook selling page. Flora, only 6 months and yet to spayed was in danger of falling into the wrong hands. She was taken in, spayed, loved and cared for until a forever home for her could be found.
Mollie came to DoodleAid with her mum Florin (see Florin’s story) needing an urgent foster home. Debbie, Phil and their two doodles Gypsy and Ted stepped up and cared for Mollie whilst DoodleAid set about finding her a forever home. We were inundated with applications for Mollie but there was something about Becky and her family that made them special. Debbie, Mollies foster mum did the home check herself and took Mollie several times to meet Becky, her family and their lovely doodle Oscar to make sure they all got on and that Mollie was going to be comfortable and happy in her new surroundings.
Scooby didn’t have the best start in life and after several homes before the age of 2, Scooby found himself again, looking for his forever home. That’s when he came to DoodleAid and James offered him the urgent foster home he needed. DoodleAid had a feeling these two could be what they both needed and they were right when James contacted them to say he wanted to adopt Scooby,
Fred found himself in need a new forever home. Stuart, Neil and Bill initially took Fred in as foster as he needed to moved urgently. It soon became clear that Fred wasn’t going anywhere, he and Bill had become inseparable! So, Fred went on to be adopted by Stuart and Neil and DoodleAid couldn’t be happier.
Jessie and Fargo found themselves needing a forever when their previous owners had to relocate and couldn’t take them with them and continue to give them the life they had known and deserved. So, they had to make the heart-breaking decision to rehome them. They were adamant that having been together all their lives that Jessie and Fargo couldn’t be separated and DoodleAid agreed.
Florin and her daughter Mollie came to DoodleAid when their owner was in desperate need, she had to move and couldn’t take her two beautiful girls with her. They both needed an urgent foster home within days. Julie, Pete and their two beautiful Golden Doodles took Florin in without hesitation. Florin then when on to be adopted by Julie and her family and couldn’t be happier with them. Thank you for taking Florin in when she most needed it and giving her the loving forever home she deserves.
Rolo was three when we noticed that despite all the human attention we could muster as a family of three teenage boys and two adults, long walks and adventurous hikes up and down dale, there was simply something missing from his almost Doodle Utopia – a void that walkies, treats, toys and human love couldn’t quite fill. We realised he needed some canny canine company of his own, someone like minded to share his walks with and to grow old with; to curl up by the fire at night with and to steal the blanket from and kick out of bed. We needed to find another Doodle-dasher to join him in his doggie mayhem. at first we sought advice from other experienced owners of multiple doods to discuss the realities.
Milo’s owner contacted us for help earlier this year, Milo had been displaying aggressive fearful behaviour and quite severe anxiety. He also hadn’t had much socialisation due to an attack on the previous owners dog. We had him assessed by a behaviourist and we collectively made the decision that Milo needed a change of environment.
Accepting that rehoming my gorgeous doodle was absolutely the best thing for him was extremely difficult, but having the help and support from DoodleAid made an upsetting situation so much better than it otherwise could have been.
