Goldendoodle

Nala (previously named Zabrina) is a great gift from God. She is feisty and playful. She fits in perfectly. She is a quick learner and our hope is to have her trained as a therapy dog (emotional support dog). Kid friendly and lives people.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Medium
  • Trainability Responsive

Goldendoodles are a hybrid dog breed resulting from crossing the Golden Retriever and the Poodle. They range from small to large depending on the variant of the dogs that breeders cross.

Poodles and Golden Retrievers are intelligent and energetic, leading to equally smart Goldendoodle pups. Goldendoodles are playful and affectionate. They are perfect for families since they get along with kids and other pets in the house.

Goldendoodles can be easy to train, making them an excellent choice for first-time dog owners. They require socialization and exposure to different sights and sounds early in life to ensure the best behavior.

Because they are a highly social breed, they need daily contact with their owners. Also, they tend to suffer from separation anxiety and don’t like being left alone for too long.

Goldendoodles are active dogs, so they need daily walks and lots of time outdoors. They love water and having extra companions to play with, both dog and human.

Goldendoodles have a medium coat length with a curly texture. They shed very little, if at all, but they still need regular grooming like all poodles.  They often come in their iconic golden coat, but can be found in red and black as well.

The typical lifespan for a Goldendoodle is 10 to 15 years. The average weight for Goldendoodles is between 50 to 90 pounds.

How dog-friendly is Arkansas?

Studies are divided over just how dog-friendly Arkansas is. The state has a long going for it, and a few areas for definite improvement. Let’s explore the two primary studies: one from Pawsafe and one from Safewise.


Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, conducted a study to rank each state according to its pet-friendliness. They evaluated states by several important indicators, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations and access to services, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.


In their study, Pawsafe ranks Arkansas as the #1 most pet-friendly state! That’s right, number one! The state also scored well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


However, Safewise, a site that reviews safety across the country, came to a very different conclusion. In their study, Arkansas is ranked as the 37th most pet-friendly state. Not terrible, but certainly not number one.


While the two studies produced contrasting results, assuming Arkansas falls somewhere in the middle of the two still puts the state towards the top of the list. So we consider Arkansas to be pet-friendly overall.

A few more facts for dog-lovers in Arkansas

BringFido lists Arkansas as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1,500 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels. The site also recommends Lake Wilson Park and the Ozark-St. Francis National Forests as fun dog-friendly activities.


Fifty-two percent of Arkansas residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%! 


What kind of dogs do Arkansans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Arkansas are Labradors, Beagles, and German Shepherds. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Boxers, and French Bulldogs. 

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Arkansas

Arkansas saved 38,197 dogs and cats during 2020. Approximately 6718 animals were killed over this same period. 


Forty-three out of 93 of the animal shelters within Arkansas are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is rather low, but the state has an above-average save rate of 78%. However, this is short of the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. We hope to see improvement in years to come.
