Marley is a handsome 1 year-old Goldendoodle who was purchased from a breeder as a puppy. Unfortunately, the family that bought him had small children and had no time to obedience train Marley so rehomed him when they had another child. He lost his second home within a few months when his mom had to return to work and also had no time for him. Marley really deserves a break so made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he could take his time and find a home where he’ll be given the time and attention that he needs. Although he is an energetic pup, Marley is a good dog who just needs some direction and stability in his life. He gets along very well with other dogs and lived with cats in his previous home. Apparently, he would chase the cats for fun but never tried to hurt one. Marley does well in his crate and might be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. For a big young dog, he does walk pretty well on a leash and would make a great walking, jogging, or hiking buddy with a little more practice. Marley had been invisible fence trained in a previous home so should be able to learn that again in his new home. He was shaved before he made the trip to Canine Lifeline but he does have a long coat so he will need grooming on a regular basis (every 6 weeks or so) to keep him looking and feeling his best. Our preference is to place him in a home with Doodle experience. He would not do well left alone for long workdays so he will need a home where his family will be around much of the time to give him the attention, exercise, and training that he needs. Marley weighs about 65 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
