The Luverne Journal’s Super Spring Pet of the Season is Tucker, the 2-year-old Goldendoodle that belongs to Ashley Gorey of Luverne. Tucker and his owner won a personalized prize package from Crenshaw Animal Clinic valued at $250.00.

While Tucker’s mom is working at Luverne High School as a special education teacher, Tucker enjoys spending his days at home with his favorite toy, an elephant. When Tucker’s owner comes home, he always greets her with excitement and a wagging tail, ready for belly rubs and cuddling.

According to the Continental Kennel Club (CKC), Goldendoodles are a designer breed. The CKC does acknowledge Goldendoodles and allows them to be registered through a directory separate from purebred animals. The CKC says that Goldendoodles are highly intelligent with a calm demeanor and lovable nature, easy to train and eager to please their owners. The CKC describes Goldendoodles as obedient and non-aggressive animals that are athletic but also love to relax.
