Hi everybody! I just moved into this warm comfy house and my name is Kennedy. My foster mom calls me Cutie Patootie (is that nice?) and No No, so those must be my middle names.
In a couple weeks, my foster mom says I will have a special day—my very first birthday. She says I will get special things just for me. But I am going to share with my two furry foster brothers because they play with me (not enough) and let me hang out with them on the dog beds and show me the ropes here.
Oh, gotta go, I think I hear the treat jar!
This is Foster Mom. Kennedy has been here a week. We first thought he was a Goldendoodle but now we guess he is a Labradoodle—one gorgeous guy. He was surrendered to a shelter with several other dogs so we have no background. But he is very social and loving although he hasn’t been taught a thing.
So, Kennedy is starting from scratch as a year-old pup. He follows the lead of his big brothers and is doing remarkably well. BUT—he is a pup. Chewing is his hobby so we have lots of toys, Kongs, and balls everywhere. He has learned fetch (love, love, loves), has stopped jumping on me, and he’s getting the idea that Foster Mom’s arm is not a chew toy.
Kennedy needs to have a family with another medium to large, confident dog and lots of time to play and teach. He is very gentle and sweet, not a mean bone in his body. He is beautiful, funny, and loves cuddles.
Because of these unprecedented times, we cannot go out and visit as we normally would, but I really don’t think this is an issue. He loves everything and everyone, even our young neighbors through the fence and leans into their pets.
Kennedy sleeps on the bed (sorry) with me and my younger dog and sleeps quietly for 8 hours. There have been two potty accidents but that was during the first couple days. I can’t say he is completely potty trained yet, because I am diligent.
Although not required, a physical fence is preferred to allow Kennedy to burn off his puppy energy safely.
I believe Kennedy (alias Cutie Patootie or No No) is going to be an amazing, happy, fun-loving addition for the forever family he so deserves.
