My wife dropped Shadow of to get 2/3's of his guy parts taken away... :''(
We know it will make him more family oriented and yada,yada,yada. But, it just feels mean }:)
He is such an unbelievable puppy, my wife and I talked about him at lunch time. I still miss Chewy and probably will always have a little empty spot, but, Shadow is just so darned easygoing and well mannered for his ripe old age of 5 months! He sleeps all night at the foot of our bed. Does not even get up if we use the bathroom! In the morning, I get up and he looks at me as I go in the bathroom. he stays quietly waiting till I come out. We go to the kitchen, I give him his food and make coffee, then we go outside. Never an accident anymore.
When he greets anyone he wags his whole body! He's just a big furry (45.5lbs now) ball of love! No barking or jumping either!
Oh, he is joining many of us here with electronic implants.
We had him chipped $40, a lot cheaper than an SCS or pain pump!
We feel so lucky to have him.
I can't speak for them all, but would highly recommend Labradoodles and goldendoodles to anyone who asks. My office neighbor has a goldendoodle that is just as even tempered as Shadow.
