The current situation regarding adoption
We would like to thank everyone who contacts us to ask about adopting a Doodle. All dogs for adoption will be added to this website. If no dogs are shown on the website, it is simply because we don't have any available for adoption at the moment. We are finding that, since the Covid-19 pandemic struck, people have suddenly become desperate for a dog and will pay any amount of money to get one. This appears to have resulted in people advertising their dogs online for ridiculous prices instead of signing them over to rescues to be rehomed. We are pretty sure that eventually, some of these dogs will end up being signed over to us but they may well have complex behavioural problems from being shunted from pillar to post whilst people try to recoup the money they paid for the dogs without considering fully what a commitment owning a dog is and for how long this commitment has to go on. We would love to be able to match up everyone who enquires with a dog but all we can advise at the moment is that you keep a lookout on our website and apply for any that we advertise on there. We don't keep a list of people looking for a dog. Thank you for your understanding.
