Oodles or doodles, any name you call them, breeders of poodle mix dogs demand high prices. Breeders claim their oodles won’t shed. They do not offer a guaranty. They do not promise their puppies will be healthy. Too bad poodle mix dogs enjoy such popularity because thousands of them land in animal shelters every year. Greed and ignorance make for tragic outcomes for dogs.
I know because I adopted our cocopoo, Sydney, from an animal shelter. Sydney had been waiting for three weeks. Not because no one wanted him either. Super cute, curly-haired with tons of personality, he made being wildly out of control a lifestyle. Shelter staff wanted an experienced dog parent for him. Fetch Sydney’s story here. Eight years ago, when I took him home, I had already raised and trained four other rescue dogs. Never had tried to train a poodle before nor a dog who hadn’t given up biting.
So this post is for all of Sydney’s brothers, sisters and distant cousins still looking for homes.

“Sammy, a cocopoo, treats all sweetly and gently. He loves to snuggle in a lap. Quiet and loving he is also playful, loves walks and car rides He needs a foster home. Can you help? He is good with dogs and cats. Sammy looks about six or seven years old.”
