Hi All. We are joining the forum as a resource as we begin searching for our new family member. Two years ago we rescued a Labradoodle, Timber, from some unfortunate circumstances. She is an amazing addition to our family, and was my very first dog of my own. We have done countless hours of training and behavior modification and she has come a long way. We would love to bring a puppy into the family in late 2019 and we are working hard to make sure we are on the right track. In talking with our trainers, we think a standard poodle will be the right fit for us! I prefer larger dogs, so I hope we can find a breeder that we fall in love with, and start a great relationship. We hope to find a laid back pup with essentially a therapy temperament that will be a great fit with our current love. I hope to learn a ton from this forum and look forward to the advice from all of you!
