24-006 Slayer , whose name we immediately changed to  Slater , was 16 months old when surrendered in January 2024. The surrendering family had 5 children with another on the way, and the wife was overwhelmed.  Slater  is very active – they did not realize a Doodle would have so much energy. They sent him to a 3-week boot camp, but he still jumps and could knock over small kids or the elderly. He loves to swim and to play with any toy that bounces. He will chew anything including his dog bed – they think he is bored but just do not have time to play or exercise him. He is happy-go-lucky and is sweet. The AGR transporter said he was actually quite fearful and very skinny. Basic vaccinations and neuter were done right before he was surrendered, but we still had to have him tested for heartworm and valley fever and give him the leptospirosis and influenza vaccinations. He was placed with an adoptive couple in Peoria. It took a while for the resident dog,  Remy , to come to terms with the new boy, but he finally decided it was OK for  Slater  to be there. The adopter sent us these comments: 

Slater  is a great addition to our family. We already have a 3-year-old Goldendoodle,  Remy , and the two of them get along so great together.  Slater  has such a loving personality – when we  get home, he is happy to see us and gives us lots of affection. His  smile is priceless! He loves to play with his toys. He and  Remy  have fun sharing them even though there are more than enough toys. The other one always wants to play with what the other one has, which is so cute. He loves going for walks with us through- out the day as much as we do. We are so happy and grateful to have him in our lives. Thank You for bringing him to us – we are thrilled to have him!
