We have actually adopted two dogs from Heather. In September of 2007, we bought a male mini goldendoodle – Jake. Within days of him coming to our house, I realized that my daughter and I were both highly allergic to him. We were shocked – didn’t know we had dog allergies – and completely heartbroken about the situation. Heather stood behind her dog and offered to take him back and refund our money no questions asked. I think that is very unique – I had talked to many breeders along the way of finding our dog and none would have been willing to do what Heather did. In the end, one of our neighbors who had seen Jake decided they wanted him, so we see him all the time. He has grown into the size and temperament that Heather promised and his family is VERY happy with him.
This past fall I got “dog fever” again and called Heather. This time we adopted one of her mini-Australian Labradoodles – Kallie. Heather had assured me that she has worked with many highly allergic families who don’t have trouble with that breed and she has been right. Kallie is just an awesome dog. She has a very sweet temperament and has been so easy to train. She has had very few accidents and once we started working with her on her obedience training she cooperated and learns so quickly. Kallie is about 6 months old right now and is 24 pounds. She is smart and we also think she’s very adorable! Heather has been great – I have periodically called or e-mailed her with questions and she is very responsive and helpful.
Good luck! I really think you won’t be disappointed with a dog from Heather Goines.
