Do you like going for walks? I do! I’m always excited when it’s morning walk time. I’m good on a leash. Foster mom describes me a being “very calm and mellow” when I meet other dogs. Okay, I lunge a bit if I see a squirrel or rabbit. I normally walk for a mile or two! It’s good for my nearly-7-year-old body! My birthday is September 17, so if you would adopt me, we could celebrate together—it would be my Lucky 7th!
I’m a good natured and easy-going golden girl. I didn’t have a normal family experience for my first six years of life, which makes me hesitant about getting too close to people. But I do like being petted and near people, and foster mom has noticed that I wag my tail a little bit more each day.
She thinks I’m easy to handle and listen pretty well. She’s also happy to report that I was house trained from the start!
I’m not familiar with what to do when I hear words such as sit, stay, and down. Not knowing these words hasn’t been a concern at my foster home as foster mom realizes that I’m normally calm and steady anyway. But obedience training can be beneficial, I hear, and foster mom thinks I’m trainable. And I like the idea of the additional interaction with people who care about me. Foster mom also thinks training would help with my shyness. I come when I’m called . . . most of the time. Oh, I must let you know, I didn’t listen the one time I jumped over a 5-foot fence. I don’t remember now why I jumped, likely I saw a squirrel.
If I were to be adopted by a family with young children, that would suit me very well! It would mean more people to celebrate with on my 7th!
Additional requirements for my forever home: a mentor dog, and a tall and sturdy fence.
