I may not be full golden retriever, but whatever I am mixed with makes for an adorable combination! I am a sweet petite 50 pound girl with an expressive face and whimsical ears that are a little up and a little down. The golden part of me loves a good game of fetch with my tennis ball. I walk pretty well on a leash especially when I am wearing my harness and I really look forward to car rides and trips to the groomer. Foster mom says I may have a little collie in my blood which explains why I like to herd the kitties that live at my house. They don’t always appreciate my help! My fenced back yard is my favorite place to bird and squirrel watch, do a little running or just relax and take in interesting smells. I love to chew on my nylabones and deer antlers, but I never harm my stuffed toys that I carry gently. My proudest accomplishment is my graduation from obedience school where I learned all the basic commands like come, sit and stay. I even got to wear a graduation cap! I can be trusted alone in the house, but my crate is my favorite place to sleep or just quietly chill out.
When people I don’t know come into my house, I get a little nervous. For now I take some medication to help me stay calm and less anxious. Foster mom introduces me to newcomers very slowly with lots of yummy treats. She gives me time to decide when I am ready for a close encounter. Once I learn that I can trust someone, we will be forever friends. I am a love bug and very gentle to the elderly lady who also lives with us. Although I get along with most dogs, I would prefer to be in a quiet adult home where I am your one and only fur baby. If you are willing to be patient with me and work to assuage my insecurities, I promise to be your loving companion and give you cuddles and kisses any time you need them.
