Puppy growth

Post by iannai » 29 Jan 2012, 22:36

Hi.

I wonder if anyone can help.

How much would doodle grow after 6 months? The lad is 'about knee height' now. The current owners are not very forthcoming.

Hi

its really difficult to say how big a doodle will grow

do you know what generation the little lad is ?

have you seen his parents as this can sometimes be an indication too, strange that the owners aren't very forthcoming ???

as you probably know there are mini medium and hoooge doodles :lol:

let us know how you get on :)

I received these 2 pictures today and immediately thought he was a mini, they said no and that he was about labrador size. They're are gonna try and get rid of him at a pet shop Mon/ Tues as they are going on holiday. :!: :!: I'm being a bit wary!

Hi
If you don't decide to take him .... fair enough.You are right to be wary

BUT do tell them about the Labradoodle Trust. They will take him and look after /rehome him in the most suitable home for him. Of course they will not pay any money for him...

http://www.labradoodletrust.com/contact.html
far ,far better than a pet shop :shock:

PS: guessing you have contacted the Labradoodle Trust too , if you are looking for a pup /dog .... doodle :D

Beamish is a standard. At 6 months Beamish was 23" to the shoulder and looked like this ....Image

At 10 months he has just grown another 2 inches and filled out a little. I wouldn't expect him to get a lot taller.

If I were to re-home any of my dogs (God forbid!) I would want the potential owners to have all the information I could give them, and I would want to know an awful lot about them! These people sound like they are either are not genuine, or are totally heartless!

If you do go for him, try to get some sort of document handing over ownership, in case they want him back when they come home!

Just to say, it's well worth registering your interest with the Trust, they often have Doodles who don't make it onto the website as they already have suitable homes waiting.

Puppies should be warm clean and well, walk away if they are not.

Saying he's labrador size isn't really a good guide anyway :? , I have a friend with 2 labs, one is a HUUUGE, stocky built golden lab, one is a small, sleek black lab.

I hope someone caring takes this poor little fella on. :cry:

Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to see him. Had arranged this morning to go in the afternoon but received a text saying he had already been sold. Hope it all works out for him.
