Derek the Labradoodle Puppy

Derek the Labradoodle Puppy

Derek is an 8 month old chocolate labrador poodle cross. Derek has already had multiple homes in his short life and we need to ensure that his next is his last. Derek is a happy, friendly, loving boy but a little bit timid, which is understandable after his unsettled start. Derek is mixing well with other dogs in foster but is growing to be a big strong boy. He will need a confident and capable handler who is prepared to start training with him so that he can catch up with the socialisation and training that he has missed so far. Derek will require regular professional grooming and ear cleaning at home, due to the nature of his coat. Derek could be a 15 year commitment so please bear this in mind when applying. Derek has been flead, wormed and is upto date with his vaccinations.
