Thanks for the info, Shannon. We want to rehome our female, Mosey. She just does not like my husband. We have had her a year. Took her to obedience class, tried to follow Cesear Milano advice, and at our wits end. She growls and barks at him when he comes near her. We thought she had it licked(pun), but last week started in again. Jim just does not like her and wants to get rid of her. I want to find a good home--she loves me. I think that's the problem, she thinks she's protecting me. The sad part is she has been moved around alot. Any advice from the group would be appreciated.
If you want to send me an email at [email protected], we can help with the rehoming aspect of this. If you would like advice, we can try to give that as well. If you email me with the exact problems, I can send them on to Beth and she might be able to help with the situation. We can list your doodle on the poomix site and take applications that would suit the needs of your girl.
Thanks, Moviestar. I've already contacted Shannon--she's already helping me out. I feel really bad about giving up Mosey, but I think it's the best thing to do. I just want to make sure she has a good home.
Oh Jerrie, I am so sorry. Shannon will be a wonderful source for Mosey to find a home. It sounds like maybe Mosey may have been abused by a male in her past. She is so adorable I am sure a new home will be found. I know it is a hard thing to do, but a rehome is so much better than a shelter. Here is her photo in case someone is wanting to adopt a non- puppy, older doodle:
Thanks to you all who have responded. You are making feel better---I love her so much. She has such a great personality. Lately, she's been coming up to me and nudging me with her nose to let me know she has to go outside. She loves to play fetch and most of the time will drop the ball when I say drop. She really is a great dog. Seems like she's airborne most of the time!!
This website is one of my favorites. I get such chuckles out hearing other stories about doodles. I thought only Mosey did those crazy things!!
My husband has really tried to get close to her. But his patience is about over. He seems very relieved that we are going to be finding her a new home.
