Buddy square












I am one happy guy who is full of life and does everything in a big way!  When I greet you, I may bury my head right in for some scratches.  I am a happy, loving dog who wants nothing more than just to be with you.  I am a typical golden who will be your shadow and lay near you and love any attention you will give me.

I have a lot of energy and would love an energetic family.  I will need a fenced in yard as I love to watch for open doors and will dash out and run around the neighborhood when given the chance.  I love being outside and will lay on the porch taking it all in.  I am fascinated by squirrels, birds and rabbits too.

I love everyone I meet; dogs, people young and old.  I am a quick learner and basic obedience commands are quite easy for me.  I am learning how to walk nicely on a leash too.  I used to spend a lot of time in a crate, now I am not too fond of being put in one.  A family that is home a lot would be my perfect life.

Are you ready for a fun loving, energetic boy to brighten your days?

Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history and as such breed and age estimates are an educated guess.
