Older Pups for Sale

Whether it's the chewing, barking, house breaking, crate training, or sleep deprivation, s
ometimes life demands that we skip past those awkward puppy development months.  On rare occasion, DoodleAround may offer a slightly seasoned pup, who has found a remarkable personality and has grown into his/her bladder.  

Why are your older dogs not discounted? Because they have been house trained, doggy door trained, crate trained, quality fed, groomed, health monitored and responsibly vaccinated and medicated as needed.  Our older dogs are given ample socialization, mental stimulation and they are taught basic commands and manners.  Our health guarantee is still valid until the age of three.  We love our dogs, continue to monitor their development, and pay attention to them as if they are going to be ours for a lifetime.  We are committed to our no-questions-asked return policy for any owner unable to keep any of our dogs.  We do not want any of our dogs to ever end up in a shelter.  We believe an older puppy is worth more, not less, than a younger puppy.

Blue is an affectionate boy who adores people.  If you hold him on your lap, he will sit back and lean against you for as long as you will hold him, and if you rub his belly, he may never leave you!!  Blue should end up around 30-40 pounds.  He has a straighter coat, which is extremely easy to care for, but he may shed very slightly.  I've not noticed hair on my clothes after holding him, but there are a few more in the brush than with his siblings.  The best part about Blue's coat is how quickly it dries off. Blue LOVES the water and is in and out of the pool throughout the day.
Goose is a very laid back boy who should end up around 30-35 pounds.  While he enjoys cuddling for brief periods of time, he prefers his independence--to check in for some love, but be free to go nap under a chair or a bush.  Goose enjoys playing with his cousins, but again likes the freedom to leave them to their play while laying on the sidelines watching them.  He seldom gets into the pool on his own, but if you place him in the pool, he stays for some time. He learns very quickly, and is easy to train. 
Oscar/Gusgus has a therapy dog temperament, and we would love for him to go to a home where he will be trained as a therapy dog. Oscar is larger than we expect, and I'm not certain exactly how big he will end up, but we're thinking 40-45 pounds (from 26 and 35 pound parents).  Oscar is very fun and playful, extremely intelligent, and learns quickly.  He loves to cuddle, to fetch, and to jump in and out of the pool.
