Louie – From Ruger and Goldie

Dear Arika,

This is the story of  “Louie Low Rider”…

He was born to Ruger and Goldie on February 12th, 2008, and flew into my arms via Alaska Airlines nine weeks later.

I was a little scared to get a smaller dog, having had Golden Retrievers for many years, but my fears went away the first minute I held Louie!

He has an incredibly soft curly coat, that we keep trimmed fairly short, because we go to the beach a lot, and he is a tremendous swimmer. He started out being very red, and then as he matured he turned mostly white. The top of his head turned completely white, but retained some of the red around his eyes and on his ears. Now he has shifted back to having red hair returning, so he appears an apricot color. His fully-grown weight is approximately 26 pounds and he is lean and strong.

Louie is very smart, and alert, he retrieves very well, and has the personality that exudes happiness and joy! He loves everyone, and every dog that will play with him. He loves a good walk everyday, is very calm when inside the house, unless play ensues- by us, and he loves to snuggle.

We really feel like we got the best of both worlds with Louie! He patiently waits to go for his walk and play, has an amazingly entertaining personality, and is sweet and loving! He even enjoys draping across my shoulders and riding there.

We truly couldn’t be happier with our Mini Doodle Louie!

Thanks so much, for our amazing dog!
