Siri

Santa Rosa, CA

  Breed: Goldendoodle

  Weight: 70 lbs

  Age: 2 years old

  Gender: Male

I adore Siri. He’s now 2 years old and we have survived puppyhood. Potty training, walking on a leash, etc. He’s a goofy boy, and is always making me laugh. Siri is very playful, he likes dogs, cats, children, adults and even my sister’s pet conure(bird). I’m retired and have plenty of time enjoying life with him. We love to go to the beach, camping in my RV, road-trips and simple things like walking in the vineyards near my home. Wherever we go he gets a lot of attention, especially when I let his hair grow out. People run up and want to hug him, call him a bear and ask a ton of questions. I tell people who walk him to know 3 things : Siri, 2 years old, goldendoodle. Those are always what people ask first. He plays best with my daughter’s labordoodle. I bring him everywhere but sometimes I’m not able to take him with me. I prefer that he have a buddy to play with while I’m gone. Maybe your puppy and Siri can keep each other company (?)

We have a 4-year old, female Golden Retriever named Finlee. Finlee weighs 65 pounds (the weight options below skip from 60 to 70). Finlee is super friendly and loves to play with other dogs. Weirdly, she is attracted to other Golden's and Yellow Labs. But she loves any friendly dog. I would be interested in trading for vacation swap with other dog parents. We have a fenced in backyard, so playtime is safe from escapes. We also have our property sprayed for ticks and fleas every other month with a company that uses natural solutions.
