Nope, Dale the "Golden
Doodle" isn't supposed to have dreadlocks -- he was having a really bad
hair day when he was sold. Probably Chip's brother (Previous), "oodle" part of the
family tree was probably a black standard poodle. You can't see in these
photos, but both dogs' ears were in bad shape, too, overgrown with hair and
Listed and sold as being 15
weeks old, these dogs were at LEAST 2 YEARS old at the time of their sale,
though severely malnourished! Dale was in slightly better shape than Chip,
though -- his body score was 3. Both dogs' feces showed more than 50% hay the
first three days after purchase.
Chip and Dale were also
"imported" from out of state, but came with NO vet Certificate of
Health, as required by law (please see
DACTP Regs, Importing Animals into WI).
Both boys, incidently, are
very handsome after being groomed, and they are thriving on their new diet of
nutritious food and lots of love!
