INTRODUCTION As told by Nike

Hi there, I’m Nike! I can’t wait to find my forever family and be your new best friend. I’m a loyal little shadow, always sticking close to you. Whether you’re cooking up something delicious or just relaxing, I love to be right by your side, watching and keeping you company.

Playtime is the best! I have so much fun playing tug-of-war and wrestling with my furry friends. I’m also a quick learner, especially when there are treats involved. I’ve already mastered “sit” and “go to bed” (that’s my crate) and I’m eager to learn even more!

I had my first grooming session recently, and guess what? I was a star! The groomers couldn’t stop saying nice things about me. I even took a nice nap on the car ride home. It was a great day!

I’m an easygoing, happy golden doodle who loves to spread joy. I know I would fit right into your family and bring lots of love and tail wags. Can’t wait to meet you!
