30 lb Shadow is...


  • Sweet & Loving

  • Wants to be near you 

  • Playful

  • Loves fetching Kongs

  • Friendly with everybody including strangers

  • Energetic - must have a home with a fenced yard

  • Wants to play with other dogs but all the others in his foster home are too small for him.  The largest in his foster home weighs 14.5 lbs and likes to play with smaller dogs but is intimated by Shadow (see videos below).  A 10 lb dog in Shadow's foster home loves to play with Shadow but Shadow is kept leashed while they play (see video below).

  • Very treat motivated

  • Not a picky eater

  • We rescued him from a local shelter the day after Christmas.  He was found by a Good Samaritan who brought him to the shelter.

  • Adult only home required (he needs training and currently jumps up and is mouthy)

  • Shadow should not be around children until trained not to be mouthy and trained not to jump on people. 

  • Needs a firm handler

  • Needs to have rules and strong leadership

  • Low to no shedding (May be hypoallergenic---it just depends which genes he got from the Poodle part and which genes he got from the Lab part)

  • Needs regular professional grooming

  • Has not been with cats under our care so we don't know how he is with them

  • Appears to have a prey drive for birds

  • Labradoodle

  • 13 months old

  • 30 lbs

  • microchipped

  • neutered male

  • Squats when he urinates---does not lift his leg and is not a marker

  • Shots up to date

  • Healthy

  • All medical paperwork provided

  • San Diego County residents only (sorry no exceptions)

  • Adoption fee $395

If interested in Shadow these are the steps:

1.  Read his bio carefully to make sure he's the right dog for you and you meet the adoption requirements. 

2.  Fill out an adoption app from our website here (copy & paste this hyperlink into your browser):

3.  If we think you and Shadow could be a great fit we'll contact you within 72 hours of receiving your application.    We're a very small volunteer-based rescue taking care of lots of animals so we don't have time to contact everyone who applies or respond to all inquires.  We're very sorry and we're hoping this will change soon.  Due to the popularity of his breed we anticipate many applications so don't get discouraged if you're not contacted.  All our adoption decisions are based on what we believe is in the best interest of the animal and the adopter.
