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 Illinois?

Illinois loves its pets! The state ranks very high for pet care, safety, and happiness. If you’re adopting a  new furry friend in Illinois, you’re in a great place! 


One of the top ranking sites for dog friendliness is Pawsafe. They analyze and rank each state based on factors like pet care costs, walkability scores, the number of pet-friendly rentals, and animal welfare laws.


In their study, Pawsafe rated Illinois as the third most pet-friendly state. They found that Illinois has over 800 pet-friendly accommodations, 279 dog-friendly restaurants, 286 pet-friendly attractions, and 634 pet services.


A similar study from Safewise, another reputable ranking site, also revealed Illinois to be highly pet-friendly. They rank Illinois second just behind Washington. One of the key factors in their ranking is the high number of pet-friendly rentals in the state. In fact, 35% of rentals accept pets. This is the fourth highest percentage of pet-friendly rentals by state.

Is Chicago a pet-friendly city?

In another study, WalletHub analyzed the 100 largest cities in the United States to find the most pet-friendly city. They ranked Chicago as the 64th most pet-friendly city. The city also scored 13th for pet health and wellness. However, Chicago is more expensive for pets, ranking 90th in terms of pet budget.


SmartAsset conducted a similar study and their ratings place Chicago in a more favorable light as the 16th most pet-friendly city.


Chicago has a lot going for pets including 570 dog friendly restaurants, 12 dog-friendly shopping centers, and 46 pet businesses for every 10,000 establishments. 


A different study from the Trust for Public Land (TPL) showed that Chicago has the 52nd most dog parks per capita, with 0.9 dog parks per 100,000 residents. 

A few more dog-related facts for Illinois

Despite the great numbers in Illinois, only 32% of Illinois residents own a dog, which is well below the national average of 40%. According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in the state are Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, and Golden Retrievers. In the city of Chicago, the same three breeds are equally as popular, but there is also a keen interest in French Bulldogs and Rottweilers.


However, the state’s total pet ownership rate is far less than the national average as well, with only approximately 49% of Illinois families owning a pet of any kind.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Illinois

Illinois saved 1,028 more animals in 2020 than in 2019. Out of 177 animal shelters, 126 are no-kill shelters. The overall save rate for the state is right around 82%. If Illinois can raise its save rate more, it will pass the 90% necessary to become a no-kill state. We hope they can do it!
