Dale is a medium-sized male Golden Doodle (best guess), who is approximately
6 months old, and weighs 24 pounds. We estimate that he will be in the 30 -
35 lb. range when he is fully grown.
Dale is is beyond sweet, smart and playful (not to mention absolutely
adorable looking), but because he is such a gentle soul and has been through
so much in his short life, we would like him to go to a very special home
that is well suited to meet his needs.
Dale is not your typical 'rough and tumble' Doodle, but rather a gentle and
cautious pup, who will require an adopter who will be home with him for the
majority of the day, and who is prepared to devote themselves fully to his
Prior to coming to Spark Rescue, Dale spent two weeks in a high kill
shelter, sick and terrified, and eventually slated for euthanasia due to
severe pneumonia. Dale has been recuperating at Spark Rescue since early
December, and is now a very energetic and playful pup.
Dale is very affectionate and loves cuddles and belly rubs. He enjoys the
company of other dogs, cats and children, rides well in the car, walks well
on a leash, and understands simple commands.
Most likely due to the actions of his past owners, who obviously cared
little for him, along with all the turmoil he experienced at the shelter,
Dale tends to be very cautious in new situations and will require a patient
nurturing person/family to help him learn to trust again and blossom into
the happy confident dog he deserves to be.
For this reason we feel it would be best that he go to a home with someone
who has past experience with dogs, and perhaps to someone who has another
dog that could help build Dale's confidence (although neither is necessary
if you are naturally nurturing and are fully prepared to meet the demands of
responsible dog ownership).
Because Dale is such a sweet boy and has had such a rough start in life, we
are prepared to wait as long as it takes to find him the ideal home.
If you feel you could provide Dale with that very special home, please
contact Spark Rescue by email firstname.lastname@example.org we will then send you
an adoption application which will ask you to elaborate in some detail about
the home you could provide. All adoptions require an approved application,
home check, adoption donation, and adoption contract. Thank you for choosing
