Meet Mack! – Adopted - DRR Alumni
Mack is searching for a forever home!
Weight: 46 lbs
Shedding: Very Little
So I think my name is Mack however I get confused because my Foster Mom refers to me as Mr. Handsome. She says I am quite the looker and my fur is crazy soft, with no shedding to boot! I am an almost 8 month old goldendoodle weighing in at 47lbs.
I love to play and I am a very social. My Foster Dad says I am totally a dogs dog and all about my fellow furry canines big and small. My favorite playmate is my fur foster brother who is the same age as I am. We are both still learning boundaries and when to tone down our horseplay. We may have tipped over a chair a time or two and we may try to pretend the family room is our personal racetrack but puppy playtime is so much fun! I would do well in a home that has a playmate who is as energetic as me or in a home where my humans have lots of time to spend with me and can take me to socialize with other pups on a regular basis. I am very fond of playing fetch and if there isn't someone around to throw the ball for me I don't let that stop me. I will gladly take my ball and toss it around to myself!
In true Goldendoodle style I am full of goofy sweetness with a tiny side of playful mischievousness. It did take a couple days to adjust in my foster home but once I did I came out of my shell and showed my foster family just how truly irresistible I am! I have the most innocent eyes that will look at you often for guidance and reassurance.
I have potty training down pat, I am let out to potty on a regular basis and if I need to go out in between I will stand by the back door. I know how to sit and shake and I'm eager and willing to learn a whole lot more.
Speaking of learning, walking on a leash is one of the things on the top of the list that I need to work on. I will do best with a redirecting harness since I am such a determined puller I will continue to choke myself with conventional collars and harnesses. I love to run and have been caught doing zoomies around the yard when I thought no-one was looking. My foster family wonders if my legs are normal or if they are really fur covered springs because I am one bouncy fellow. When I run, when I play and when I greet you walking in the door you will find me bouncing around. It looks like I might be close to learning how to jump into your arms if you will catch me because I have started to work on this with one of my human foster brothers. I have never tried to jump over anything to escape but that doesn't mean I wouldn't try so I would do best in a home with a tall fence, 8ft should do. But if my new yard is fenced with something shorter it would be safest to have someone accompany me on my backyard time just to keep an eye on me.
I can sleep in my crate at night but to be honest I would much rather snuggle up on a pillow beside you in bed or anywhere there is room for me on your bed. I don't get in trouble during the night, I actually sleep really well and will sleep later than my foster humans sometimes. I am crated when I am home alone but would much rather accompany you on any outings you can take me on. I do really well in the car and actually line up at the garage door every time I hear car keys. Foster Mom takes me to drop off and pick up kids everyday and I love it!
If I sound like the furever puppy for you then please fill out and application and maybe you will be the furever family for me!
