This sweet boy is Chip, and
his breed was listed as "Golden Doodle," which is golden
retriever/poodle mix. You'd expect a "golden doodle" to be -- well --
golden, wouldn't you? However, the "oodle" part of Chip's family tree
was probably a black standard poodle.
Chip and his brother Dale (next page) were sold with a LOT of problems.
First of all, they were listed and sold as being 15 weeks old, when the
purchaser's vet stated that they were at LEAST 2 YEARS old! You can tell just
by looking at them that they were NOT 4-month-old puppies. Although, they both
were severely malnourished, with Chip having a body score of 2, which is one
step up from "emaciated to near death." This could have been a result
of neglect -- or a deliberate attempt to make them look smaller and
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).
