Introducing Rory 15-122.
Rory is a smaller female Golden Doodle, weighing in at 44 pounds. Rory came into foster care May 16, 2015 as a retired breeder. Not much is known about her past. She appears to be around 3 years old. She has been to the vet and is now up to date on all her immunizations as well as her heartworm and flea/tick preventative medications. She is going to be spayed on May 29, 2015.
Rory arrived at our house one very scared, skinny little girl. She is 6-10 pounds under weight. Initially she wouldn’t approach any person and stayed curled up in her crate for the first two days, typical breeder behavior. What a difference a week makes. By day 3, she was exploring the area around her crate and was curious about the 2 & 4 legged creatures in this strange place. By day 4 we had her following us around (people and animals), mastering stairs and going to the bathroom outside. She went to the vet and groomer. She was hesitant, but slowly approached others.
Day 5 had her bringing toys out of the toy bucket, carrying a stuffed animal just like her resident foster brother and tail wagging as she approaches the humans for some love. Day 6 was her first walk. She was hesitant, but curious. She got scared when she encountered some kids playing that ran up to her, but when their mom had them step back and she gently bent down to greet her, Rory approached her and enjoyed the attention. Day 7 was her first night in our bedroom, out of the crate! Today, she is happy- ears up, tail wagging just hanging out with her foster brother and sister (who weren’t the most welcoming of her when she first got here, but she’s won them over too!)

If you have the patience and love needed to help her reach her full potential, contact your placement advisor. She’s come so far in so little time. I can hardly wait to see her fully confident.
