Available Dogs for Rehome adoption
As a dog or puppy becomes available for re-homing, we will that list information below and also share it on our Crockett Doodles Facebook page.
Crockett Doodles Pups/Dogs Available for Rehoming
Occasionally a member of the Crockett Doodles family needs to re-home their beloved doodle puppy or doodle adult dog. As responsible doodle breeders, Crockett Doodles wants to facilitate the re-homing of any doodle puppy (or adult doodle dog) who is no longer a fit in his/her family. We want each of our Crockett Doodles puppies to find the ideal forever family.
We have a thorough application process, and seek the very best fit in forever homes for each of our puppies. By our records, more than 99% of the puppies we place in homes are an ideal fit and find their forever home from the very beginning. In rare instances, a doodle puppy needs to find a new home—often the situation is no fault of the puppy at all. Here are some of the reasons in the past occasional families have sought to re-home their doodle puppy:
An Unexpected Family Emergency: Sometimes the dog’s primary caregiver finds out that she or he has a terminal illness. One time a family was dealing with a serious illness with a loved one, and found out that they were expecting twins (unexpectedly). They realized the best thing for their dog was to find a new loving home for him. Here’s an example of a previous dog that needed to be re-homed.
A Challenge that Prevents Adequate Care: A very kind couple who adopted a puppy from Crockett Doodles emailed us a few weeks after adoption, saying that their doodle puppy was amazing, but the wife (who was home with the pup during the day) had suffered a major injury to her foot. No longer able to get around, it was increasingly difficult to house train the puppy. This family realized the best thing for the puppy would be to find a new home, so the wife could focus on her foot healing, and they could later adopt a doodle puppy from Crockett Doodles.
Not an Ideal Fit: Occasionally a family with little kids find that their children are scared of a puppy due to the puppy’s energy. Sometimes a family with extreme allergies may be allergic to dog saliva, or may find that even minimal shedding sets off their allergies. A home like this may realize that it’s in the dog’s best interest to go to a home without severe allergies.
Below we’ve tried to be as accurate as possible regarding the reason the dog is listed for adoption, whether or not the dog is house trained, etc. The adoption fee is set by the current family who has the doodle. This fee is not set by Crockett Doodles. As responsible breeders, we are merely trying to facilitate the re-home process by connecting you with an adult dog or older puppy that was not a perfect fit for their current home, or for some reason outside of the dog’s control, needs to find a new home. At this time, we do not offer our delivery service for any puppies needing to be re-homed.

Why should someone adopt Macgregor? He has little to no shedding, no drool, and will be a wonderful large adult dog. He is highly intelligent and extremely observant. He is also full of energy and likes to play.
What kind of home would be a good fit? Macgregor would do well in a home with older children or a family that could handle a puppy that is active and full of energy. He is a large dog, so a family that is ready for a bigger dog is needed as well. He loves attention and needs a family that can give him the attention and training that he needs.
Reason for re-homing: Due to some recent health issues that I have, it is best for me to find another family for Macgregor since I do not have the time or energy to attend to him as a young puppy.
What training has Macgregor completed? Macgregor has had lessons from a professional trainer. I have taught him to go outside and he knows several commands (sit, stay, off, outside, inside, paw).
Is he current on vaccinations? Yes
Any health issues? Not currently, has been treated for infection.
Is he neutered? No
Is he micro-chipped? No
Price: $1200 - $300 (rehome adoption deposit) = $900 due at pick-up
Adoption Status: Available
Age: 10 months
Weight: approx. 51 lbs.

Why should someone adopt Pippa? Pippa is a wonderful dog who truly loves people and other dogs. Pippa is an still an active puppy and loves to romp around in a large yard. She lays by our feet, under the table, at meals and just wants to be a part of the family...so much so that she will often jump in bed with our kids. Pippa is a snuggler and prefers to sit almost on top of you, until she gets too hot and then she'll happily plop down on the floor. She is a little lady though, and will wait by her food bowl to get fed.
What kind of home would be a good fit? The best home for Pippa is the home that can give her the attention she deserves. Someone should either work at home or have a family member home with her. This dog lives for her people and loves to be loved. A home with kids would also be a great fit as she's been wonderful with our four kids. Pippa thrives in an environment with regular walks and someone who can play a good game of fetch as well as provide daily stimulation for her ever-thinking brain.
Reason for re-homing: In the time since we've brought Pippa into our home, we've faced a few changes that make this painful decision necessary. My wife and I both work jobs that require more and more of our time (not to mention travel) and given our four kids, Pippa gets the short end of the stick. Recently a family member has also been diagnosed with cancer, so we're walking that journey as well. While our hearts are big enough to love her, our schedules don't allow for us to truly give Pippa the love and time she deserves.
What training has Pippa completed? Pippa is not just cute and affectionate, she's also really, really smart. Pippa is bell trained and has even learned on our style of doors to let herself back in the house. From time to time Pippa may have an accident, but those are few and far between. She knows commands like "sit," "down," "leave it," "heel," and "drop it." She's graduated from both puppy preschool and a two week obedience boarding course (we will share the teaching videos with the new owners). Pippa is an excited puppy and has lost some of her great leash skills, though she just needs a refresher (she does know and practice heel when consistently used).
Is she current on vaccinations? Pippa is current on all medication (flea/tick and heart worm) and vaccinations
Any health issues? No
Is she spayed? Yes
Is she micro-chipped? Yes
Price: $1800 - $300 (rehome adoption deposit) = $1500 due at pick-up
Adoption Status: Pending Adoption
All puppies and dogs posted here have been living in loving Crockett Doodles families that were originally approved through our stringent application process. These families have provided loving and protective homes for their dogs and in most cases are heartbroken about the need to find their beloved pet a new forever home. They have chosen to reach out to other families through our network who have similar high standards of caring for and loving their pets.
From our experience, it has become obvious that finding a quality older Doodle to adopt is actually very difficult to do as Doodles typically not re-homed. We receive daily emails from families looking to adopt an older Doodle, so we’re thrilled to be able to offer you this platform of outstanding Doodles from our outstanding Crockett Doodles family.
If you are interested in adopting a puppy or older dog listed on THIS Re-home page, you are welcomed to fill out the application below and submit it to us. Please answer thoughtfully. We will take the time to review all applications submitted for each posted dog. We will carefully select the home that best fits the dog’s needs and personality and the original homes’ wishes, and will contact you directly if you are chosen to adopt.
When you receive your approved adoption email, you’ll be asked to submit a $300 Re-home Adoption Deposit to us at that time to help cover our costs for reviewing and evaluating the applications. We will also connect you directly to the family seeking to Re-home their dog. We sincerely respect our Crockett Doodles family’s privacy and will only share your contact information with the owner’s family if you are chosen to adopt. You and the adoptive family will work out final payment and adoption details directly with each other and have the freedom to make the arrangements that work mutually for you both.
