You know in your heart that this sweet little guy is just what your family needs!


This medium sized Goldendoodle buddy - highly intelligent with an affectionate and calm demeanor, needs a forever home!   His beautiful carmel colored coat is silky, hypoallergenic and won’t shed while he basks in all your love and petting.   When he grows up, he’ll be between 40-50 lbs, and before you bring him home- he will have been well cared for, exposed to children and other pets and MAY even be potty trained. 


He’ll be yours right away- so plan your surprise unveiling now- and the generous donors have made it easy by supplying all the immediate necessities to care for your new puppy- a crate, collar,  leash, toys  and puppy  food. 


This highly sought after breed typically sells for $3000, but we think this special puppy is priceless!
