“We initially planned to get a dog after getting married, but we decided to get a dog after Balto died.
We were thinking about getting a Bernese Mountain Dog, but we found out that they have a short life expectancy and that they shed.

My fiancé suggested the golden doodle because of the no-shedding and they are mild mannered in terms of temperament.
We wanted to get a puppy to raise together.”
