Golden Retriever / Poodle (Standard) / Mixed : : Female : : Young
23-009 Sunny is a small 5-year-old Goldendoodle who was neither spayed nor up to date on her vaccinations. She was surrendered with her housemate, 23-008 Buddy , by an owner who was dealing with a health crisis and could no longer care for them. The owner described Sunny as loyal, very sweet and a Velcro dog. She likes to play fetch with rubber balls, and carry around stuffed animals. She will chew on a stuffed toy that has a squeaky in it and may destroy it if not watched. She spends most of her time inside, but likes to go out in the backyard with the other dogs. Sunny was fostered for a couple weeks by some foster volunteers. There were some altercations between the resident dog and Sunny , so they recommended that Sunny be placed in a no-other-dog home with no children. Our Placement Team found just the right home for her with an adopter in Scottsdale. The adopter had made an appointment to get Sunny spayed, but Sunny went into heat so the spay had to be postponed – it was finally done four months after she came into Rescue. The adopter assured us several times that everything was going great and that she loved this little girl. When asked if she was ready to finalize the adoption, she said, Yes, I’m 1000% ready! The adopter spoke with me recently and commented:
Sunny my sunshine is the best! She was a little skittish when she arrived here, but she has made great strides and is well-socialized now with both humans and other dogs. Everyone loves her. She is peaceful and is thriving. She loves to carry her stuffies around and will take them all to her bed and sleep with them. So cute!
Sounds like Sunny just needed some time to adjust and some supervised exposure to other dogs and to humans she didn't know. We are happy everything has worked out so well for her.
