Australian Labradoodle free to right home

Post by barneydoodle » 04 Aug 2013, 11:22

I very sadly need to re-home my gorgeous boy Barney due to a change in personal circumstances. I am going through a divorce and where I am living it has become very difficult to have him.
Barney is an Australian Labradoodle bought from Raisdoodles in Herefordshire. He has a brown soft fleece coat and does not moult. He is about 22" high and weighs about 20kg and will be 3 years old at the end of November. I have always maintained him well so he is up to date with vaccinations, worming, etc.
Barney is a beautiful dog and as a puppy he cost £1500. He is a lovely character and would suit a family with young children. I know the first to see him will want him and time is of the essence. He is available free to the right home.

Have you contacted Rai? I have seen on her website that she re homes doodles.

Also I wouldn't sell him for free, you want to make sure he gets the BEST home and make sure he doesn't end up in the wrong hands.

So sorry to hear, good luck finding him a lovely home

How heartbreaking for you- I am sorry things are tough for you.
I am sure you will find Barney the right home. The Labradoodle Trust will help with foster homes and home checking but I think they are busy at the moment with their annual Doodlfest event. There are mobile numbers on the website of the co- ordinators.
Will the breeder help?
Please be very wary of offering him free as he may be attractive to unscrupulous breeders (if not done) or , sorry to seem dramatic but it happens, dog fighting people or just someone who would sell him on. I know you would vet them but they can be quite plausible.
Sorry- I don't want to add to your stress but lots of people just aren't aware these awful people exist.
I hope you find a solution and things improve for you. There are lots of lovely people on here who will offer you comfort and advice. Xxx

Thanks guys. would not feel comfortable charging for him and yes he has been done so cannot be used to breed.
Hopefully, someone I know will have him, just exploring all avenues.

I understand it feels bad to ask for money when you just want a nice home. Be wary of gumtree and preloved etc but you're in the right place here with hundreds of doodle lovers. I'm sure you'll find him somewhere lovely. Xx

I'm sure there is someone on here looking for another dood. Some people are at doodlefest. I'm sure you will have many replies by this evening.

How terrible for you, it is heartbreaking to have to part with your boy. If you decide to contact the Labradoodle Trust, they do have a waiting list of adopters who have particular needs of a dog, eg good with children, good with cats, non-shedding etc. I'm sure that Barney would fit the bill perfectly for someone, and the Trust homechecks all applicants with a proper personal visit.

I feel so sorry for you. What a very difficult decision. He sounds absolutely gorgeous. If only I could talk my husband around to having two, but sadly I am not getting very far. Where abouts in the country are you? Is Thierry any way that he could possibly be fostered out temporarily until you are sorted, and you could then take him back? Sorry, I am sure you have thought of everything, but just wanted to say that I am sure if it was a case of needing short term help, one of us might be able to oblige.

As others have said, I am sure you will get more responses once Doodlefest is over. Wishing you the very best of luck, and a Big Hug. Clare and Charlie x

Sorry to hear about Barney :( ......don't give him away for free if you can't let him go to the Doodle Trust at least ask money for him so that you will potentially get a genuine dog lover/owner wanting him and make sure they have at least two visits to see him and spend time with him and vet them yourself. You don't have to accept any money once you know where he is going.
Please make sure it is a genuine dog lover and not as Suzie23173 has already mentioned Barney could be at possible risk of all sorts of unscrupulous people. Have you tried asking your friends and family members first maybe just maybe they may know of someone just waiting for a Barney :) . Word of mouth is an amazing system. Good Luck to you and Barney x
Vince doodle ...you will always find him in the kitchen at parties ......

Have you contacted Rais Doodles? They are good breeders who support their owners. Maybe they can help get him a home, or vet those who apply.

I have a home check form I can emil you if you want to pm me your emil address. At leat it helps to vet those applying and weeds out some of the less desirable potentil owners.

Perhaps some of us who are home checkers in your area could help.

Try contacting Trish (Madaboutdoodles) who is a breeder in Bedfordshire, who has Cassie, Sadie et al. She might know of someoen looking for an older boy Doodle or maybe someone who could foster him for a bit if you can get sorrrted out and have him back.
