22-006 Vader came to AGR as a 3½-year-old Goldendoodle (was 4 in May). With kids and work, the owner did not have time for him. He is very energetic and wants to play. After the second child they decided he could live in the backyard, so for the last 6 months with them he had lived outside all the time – unless it was too cold, then they put him in the laundry room. The owner did not know if he is neutered – when she got him from Craigslist he didn’t have testicles, so she assumed he was neutered. Our vet checked him and he is, indeed, neutered. Vader was free fed, which turned him into a picky eater. That, along with various changes in food, led to bouts of diarrhea, which has now been controlled with a prescription food. He also was scratching a lot and when Benedryl and mild oatmeal shampoo did not help, we had him evaluated for allergies and he was given a cytopoint injection, medicated shampoo and a supplement for his dry skin, which did help. As far as placement goes, three times was the charm for Vader – he did not work out at the first two homes where he was placed. Seems he had some jealousy issues with the resident dogs. So, we found him a permanent home with a an adopter where there were no other pets. She said:

Thank you for making me a dog mom! Vader will be well taken care of! Vader (as in Darth ) is the new love of my life, and I think the feeling is mutual. He’s a happy, fun and smart boy and loves being the center of attention. This is especially so on our daily walks where his name is called by neighbors as he skips down the block in search of his favorite smells. Vader makes friends easily and has several buddies he looks for when we walk, like Bella, Happy, Tank and the Whippet family. He will sit by the kitchen pantry where his treats are kept and hand you his paw for a reward. He also loves to swim in the backyard pool and dash around the edge in lightning speed without a misstep. But Vader’s favorite thing to do is ride in the car to the baseball field to catch tennis balls! It’s so funny to see him suddenly wake from a deep sleep if I mention a “car ride” in a conversation. My “Velcro Dog” Vader is a big Mama’s boy and is just as spoiled as my grandkids! A huge “Thank You” to Arizona Golden Rescue for bringing us together! We are really glad Vader has finally landed in his forever home!
