Now 8 weeks old and just joining the Carrier family, Ranger has lots of potential!
Yesterday we took a trip up to Indiana to meet Jason from Walnut Valley Puppies. We came home with Ranger, an 8-week-old, F1 Bernedoodle that we *hope* will grow up into a size somewhere between our Jackpot (25 lbs) and Buster (50 lbs).
He’s a playful little guy and, of course, super cute. In the future, we hope he’ll be siring some gorgeous Golden Mountain Doodle puppies with our smaller Mamas: Amber, Autumn, and Jina.
We’re so happy to add Ranger to our pack! He’s fitting right in so far. Gotta keep the little ones from loving him tooo much, though!
In case you’re not familiar with the Carrier Family Doodles’ model for raising puppies, Not only are our Golden Mountain Doodle and Aussie Mountain Doodle puppies entirely home-raised, but our parent dogs are all beloved pets in our large-family home. (Yes, this makes for a full house, but we wouldn’t have it any other way! We don’t believe sociable and loving animals belong in kennels.)
We’ve all noticed that our Bernedoodles tend to be less aware of our “personal space” and can definitely get in-your-face. They are more active than our Goldendoodles as well. The Bernedoodle can also be a bit stubborn. But, of course, they are gorgeous! And their extroverted nature is rather irresistible.
We are big fans of the Goldendoodle x Bernedoodle mix, known as the Golden Mountain Doodle. We feel that the GMD brings together all the best traits of the parent breeds in one pretty perfect puppy.
