Full Advert Details
Lovely Poppy a Labradoodle is our new little Starfish - brought in because of a marriage break up and her being left too long on her in the day. Her father was a Golden Retriever x Poodle and Mother Labrador x Poodle - you can really see the Golden Retriever in her.
She has gone into a foster home with two children 9 and 12, a young Labrador and a Hamster.
Poppy I know will get lots of interest but please read carefully as beautiful as she is we must make sure the home we find for her matches her needs and its a good match.
Poppy has settled into family life well, she gets on very well with the other young lab and is very good with the children. She sleeps with the oldest every night on his bed. Poppy has no malice in her and loves everyone - she thinks the world is a great exciting place and loves life.
Poppy has so much for going for her with her loving happy nature but she is not going to be for everyone. So here are the negatives. She has received very little training - she will jump up and bounce all over you if she can get away with it... She does not walk great on the lead and has a terrible recall. This is all basic training she really should have received as a young pup and has not which is such a shame - so would be no good having her with very young children at this stage as although she would not mean it she would knock them flying. She needs someone who will be happy to start dog training with her and teach her all these basics she should have learnt months ago. The recall will come its just pure excitement and she does not want to come back while she is having so much fun.
So although a lovely girl with a great nature she needs to learn her manners and basic training minimum to begin with.
Poppy is no coach potato and the home that would suit her best is a busy active home with plenty going on where she can be the centre of it - who ever homes her really must be there for the long haul not just because of getting a Labradoodle cheap!!!!
She is fine being left and is not destructive but not completely house trained and has had a few accidents.
Poppy is still very much a puppy at heart and very immature for her age so somebody looking for a crazy outgoing wonder temperament dog then she is one for you..
I forgot to say the Hamster has to live in the bathroom now for his own safety so no small furries...

Puppy/Dog Adoption Checklist
Before contacting or visiting the advertiser for this Labradoodle. Please make sure you have printed and read this checklist fully. Do NOT buy a dog or puppy from the advertiser unless you are happy that they follow all the advice on the list. If you have any concerns, report them to us.
- Do your research first
Getting a new dog or puppy is a massive commitment, so make sure you have researched the breed fully and have the time and commitment necessary to care for the dog. You can read our detailed Information guide about dogs for potential new dog owners. Also read our Labradoodle Dog breed information profile.
- Confirm that the advertiser is genuine
You should verify this by arranging to visit the dog or puppy at the advertisers home, if they make excuses or try to ask for money or a deposit to be paid online without visiting the dog at their home, or if the advertiser attempts to deliver the puppies or meet you at any other location than their own home, then please do not agree to this. NEVER send money online for any dog. Please read our article on avoiding potential scams.
Pets4Homes do not verify that all advertisers are genuine, so you must make sure you visit the advertiser at their home to confirm yourself. If you are unsure that the advertiser is genuine, please report them to us.
- Can the puppies be viewed with their Mother?
The advertiser should ALWAYS let you see the puppies with their mother, and in certain circumstances should let you see the puppies father. Not being able to see the puppies mother is a sign the puppies have not been bred by the advertiser and possibly imported. If the advertiser makes excuses why you cannot see the puppies mum, please walk away and report them to us
- Is the Puppy over 8 Weeks of age?
Puppies must be at least 8 weeks old and fully weaned before they can leave their mothers. Most responsible sellers will keep their puppies longer than this before they let them go to new homes. Read further information on the minimum age puppies should be before leaving their mothers
- Check the Health of the Puppy or DogIt can be difficult for the average person to check if a dog or puppy is healthy or not, so if you decide to adopt or buy the puppy, make sure that the seller agrees that you can return them within 48 hours for a full refund after taking the dog or puppy to a Vet of your choice for a health check. The seller should be willing to let you do this. If the puppy has already been health checked by their own vet, make sure you get evidence for this in the form of vet records and phone their vet to confirm this.
- Is the puppy or dog up to date with their vaccinations?
Puppies should receive 2 vaccinations, the first at around 8 to 10 weeks of age and the second, two weeks later at around 10 to 12 weeks of age. Older Dogs require booster vaccinations occasionally as recommended by their Vet. Ask the breeder which vaccinations they have had and if not, why not. Puppies should have at least had their first set of vaccinations before they leave. If the seller has not started the puppies vaccinations, it will be your responsibility to make sure you arrange both vaccinations 7 days before letting your puppy go outside. (More Info)
- Have the puppies been treated for worms and fleas?Puppies should really be wormed at around 2 weeks of age, and again at around 5 weeks of age, and finally just before they leave the seller/breeder at 8 to 12 weeks of age.
- Is the puppy/dog Microchipped ?From April 6th 2016 it will be required by law that all dog over 8 weeks of age are microchipped and that the keepers details registered against them are kept up to date. The breeder is responsible for microchipping the puppies and must have their details registered on the microchip database first. Please check to make sure you receive the microchip documentation with chip number and then arrange to transfer the microchip in to your own name. (More Info)
- Ask questions about puppies mother
Ask how many litters the mother has had and how old she is, she should be at least 1.5 years old. Ask about her temperament. The advertiser should want to tell you all about the puppies mother.
- Is the dog/puppy registered with the kennel club?If they are, then check to make sure you are given the correct kennel club documents BEFORE you decide to take the dog home. It may also be worth phoning the kennel club to check the information provided is correct.
- Have the puppies been socialised ?Make sure that puppies have been socialised from a very early age and are raised in a home environment, have interacted with their litter mates and are used to people, children and general household life. Puppies that haven't been raised in a home environment may develop behavioural issues, have temperamental problems, be difficult to housetrain and find adjusting to family life hard.
