ADOPT KEVIN: KEVIN is a very happy joyful young boy full of love and life, very affectionate, and just waiting for his new home with open paws. He is still very much a puppy at heart. He follows you everywhere, you will never experience loneliness after meeting KEVIN. He is very smart, but he needs further training on basic obedience commands, going into his kennel if you choose to crate, and guarding his toys. He enjoys leash walking. Kevin loves car rides, plays well with other dogs, and ignores the cat in his foster home. If you leave something on your counter, he will swipe it – typical of the breed. He has a lot of energy, and needs lots of exercise both mentally and physically stimulating. He is not happy being left alone for long periods of time, but has great house manners and he does not get on furniture or beds – he sleeps in his dog bed. He is housetrained, no issues – so long as he is let out frequently.. He learns quickly, he is focused on you, and he aims to please. He will bark at intruders, but it has not been excessive. Kevin is ready to begin his journey with a family of his very own that can run with him, entertain him, and play with him often. If you are ready for a bouncy intelligent high-energy pup, look no further. Kevin will be a dedicated devoted companion.

MEETING KEVIN: He is fostered in Fruitland Park, FL. and will be adopted to homes within a reasonable distance. You will need to travel to Fruitland Park to meet Kevin if your application is approved. You will need to bring all your family members and pets for the introduction meeting.

The GOLDENDOODLE BREED: Kevin is tons of fun but he does require ALOT of work! Exercise in your fenced yard, leash walks, patience, and additional training on your family’s part to be the best dog he can be! Please do your homework on the breed, they are not for everyone. They are high energy, have a high-prey drive, and require a grassy yard to exercise in that is fenced on all 4 sides with a minimum 5-foot fence. Kevin is not recommended if you have children under 10. He occasionally guards his toys, and does not want to give them up. Kevin is eager to learn, athletic, agile, wickedly smart, and a velcro dog. Kevin want to be an active participant in your daily life. His average lifespan is typically 12-15 years, so keep their lifespan in mind if you are thinking of adopting Kevin. Your age should be appropriate for his estimated lifespan. High quality food is essential. Kevin requires monthly grooming and frequent brushing. Grooming ranges from $100-$200.
