When Hebe moved from London to Dorset, her owners, Jane and Christoph decided they wanted her to have a companion.
Due to allergies, they needed to get another low shedding dog, but wanted to adopt rather than go down the puppy route. They learnt about DoodleAid from a previous story about DeDe (short for Dorothea).
Jane soon got onto DoodleAid’s website and started following them. One day soon after, there was a cockapoo called Blaze that appeared on the page. Jane submitted an application and within days she received a phone call from DoodleAid and a home check was booked. Needless to say, they were approved and were given Blaze’s owner’s number.
Jane got in touch with his owner and learn about why she was giving up Blaze. On the 15th October, Hebe and her owners drove from Dorset to Hull on the 15th October to meet the owner and Blaze. It was love at first sight! They spent the afternoon together, took him for a walk and they already knew the answer after they left him for the evening. The next morning they collected Blaze. And there were happy tears when Blaze left his home. His owner knew it was for the better and that DoodleAid had managed to find him a new home, a new life that suited him better.Hebe was very friendly towards Blaze at first but after four years of being an only dog, her nose was a little out of joint when Blaze got in the car and accompanied them home. It has taken a couple of weeks but they’ve sorted their issues out and now regularly chase each other around the garden. Blaze has settled in nicely and been a real joy and wonderful addition to their family.
Blaze and Hebe came to our Doodleween Meet on Sunday and George got to meet Blaze. (I’m still in St. Tropez living it up!) And when we go to visit them again in December, it will be the four of us playing together in their garden.
May’s comment: We’ve learnt more about DoodleAid especially since we met DeDe, a breeding dog, who was rescued by James, Frank and Dante. And now Blaze, through circumstances at home, the owner knew it was best to give him up. Two very different circumstances but DoodleAid was able to help rehome them both.
If you’re thinking of adopting a doodle, do check out DoodleAid’s website or just support their efforts in finding doodles forever homes.
