Barley

Kensington, CA

  Breed: Golden Retriever

  Weight: 50 lbs

  Age: Puppy (less than 1 year old)

  Gender: Male

My 5 month old golden retriever is very sweet and lovable, but very timid except with dogs he knows well. He is very intimidated by all the activity at the dog park. I think it will help to have him spend time one-on-one-or-two with other dogs that are not big and aggressive. He loves to play with balls and chew toys. And he loves all people, especially children. I am a retired professor who is still writing but not doing active research or graduate teaching . I volunteer with Lawrence Hall of Science teaching science to preschoolers once a week and special events. Otherwise I am home most of the time. I would love to find a playmate for Barley and if that works an occasional overnight when I am out of town. I would be happy to reciprocate of course.

Mingo

Kensington, CA

  Breed: chihuahua poodle min pincher mix

  Weight: 15 lbs

  Age: 3 years old

  Gender: Male

We are a family of 4 with a 4 yr and 6 yr old who have grown up with dogs. We rescued our loveable pup Mingo in Aug 2022 and he has become a lovely part of our family. He especially loves and takes care of dogs who are smaller than him. We have a good sized, fenced backyard and we take Mingo out for at least 1 walk a day. Would love to connect w folks who are looking to exchange care and also those in our neighborhood who would like to meet up for walks/doggy play dates.

Butterscotch

Kensington, CA

  Breed: Goldendoodle

  Weight: 40 lbs

  Age: 2 years old

  Gender: Male

Super sweet and mellow. He’ll match whatever energy is in the room. Loves all people, dogs, and cats. We say he was built to love. He does get nervous when left alone in other homes and could potentially cause damage by scratching on a door. It would be best if he could be brought back to our house if you need to leave yours.

We are a dog-loving mom and 12YO boy, living next door to Berkeley, in the Kensington hills. We adore our Australian Labradoodle, Chewie, born Valentine’s Day 2020.
