Well hello there! Our names are Abby and Lootie, and we are sweet, affectionate, and gentle Doodles who were born about February 2009. I guess you're wondering why fabulous shaggy gals like us are needing to find a new home. Rest assured, we were adopted by a loving, attentive family when we were still quite young. Even though we're a source of joy to her, our human mom realizes that with recent serious family health issues, she will be the nurse and can't give us the kind of activity and attention that we deserve to be totally happy. So she's made the difficult decision to try to find us a home where 'Abby and Lootie can give someone as much joy as they have given me.' Abby says: I'm a 55-pound LabraDoodle gal who loves people and is great with kids -- even the toddler. I thrive on affection from my humans! I adore being close to them, so I'll lie down next to (or on!) them for a little petting or to take a nap. I haven't been around cats, but I'm great with other dogs and am not food aggressive. Most LabraDoodles need a lot of exercise, and I'm no exception. Long, daily walks are my favorite part of the day, and I'm so good on a leash that the family's toddler can walk me. Now how about that? I can also fully operate a doggie door to do my business when my humans can't take me for a walk until they return from being gone. My coat only sheds just a little bit -- mostly from my tail, where I have my longest hair. I'm pretty low-maintenance: my fur doesn't mat very much, so I only need a grooming every few months. I'm in great health, but you might notice that I wore down my teeth when I was always locked in a crate by my first adoptive family. Fortunately my second adoptive family had no need to crate me! Lootie says: I love people and am great with kids -- even the toddler. I love it when my humans of all ages pet me or want to hug or cuddle with me, but I'm also fine relaxing in my own space. I haven't been around cats, but I'm great with other dogs and am not food aggressive. I don't need as much exercise as most GoldenDoodles, but I do enjoy the daily walks that have been always in my family's routine, and I'm excellent on a leash. My coat does not shed, but I do need a regular bath or grooming so that my fur doesn't mat. I'm in great health, and I recently had my teeth cleaned. Today's the day that you need to arrange to meet us! Hey! We're looking forward to meeting you! You may have a hard time telling us apart except for our difference in size. Abby and Lootie are updated on shots, spayed, microchipped, dewormed, and heartworm tested. Their adoption fee is $250 for the bonded pair, cash or check payable to Buster's Friends.
