4 Blanche - AVAILABLE 10 month old, 30 pound spayed Golden Doodle This little girl is sweet, silly and complicated. Blanche was released from a breeder to rescue. She missed out on the early socialization most puppies have and is afraid of new people, possibly men, anything new. The first couple days were rough. She didn't want to eat. Didn't want to go outside, and if she did, it was difficult to get her back in. After a couple days she started following cues from her foster brother. Blanche will need a playmate in her new home. She's almost normal when just her foster mom is home, but prefers her crate to interacting with her foster dad and will bark & growl at him. There's no way to tell if it's just him or all men since she's going to hide from anyone new. She hates the leash and will just freeze or try to pull away. She doesn't want to be picked up but once you have her she doesn't struggle. Her house-training is coming along. However, if you don't make sure she does her business outside, she has no problem going in the house. She does keep her crate clean and she sleeps there through the night or if no one is home. It's her safe place. All that being said, Blanche has made so much progress in just over a month and we're still working with her. She just needs love, lots of patience and positive reinforcement. Blanche loves to play with her ball or a squeaky toy, chewing on bones and rough housing with her foster brother. Blanche is looking for a home where someone is home most of the time. She needs someone who is going to give her as much time as necessary and not get frustrated. A securely fenced yard is a must as is a sibling. Blanche is spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations plus heartworm, flee & tick preventive. Blanche's adoption fee is $550.
