Princess is a beautiful English Creme golden who will be 4 years old in February. She has lived with an elderly couple since she was a puppy. She has never been around other dogs but has been getting along fine with our 3 resident goldens. She has made a few attempts to try to play with them also.
She had never been taken for a walk so pulls hard on the leash when we go for our daily long walks. She’s fascinated by all the smells on our walks. We’re trying different devices to see if we can find something that will prevent the pulling. She does get tired about half-way into the walk.
She has been eating mainly people food so eating dog food alone has been quite an adjustment for her. She weighs 71 pounds so the vet said her not eating very much was nothing to be concerned about.
She was found to be healthy at her recent vet visit. She was brought up to date on immunizations and was heartworm negative. She will be spayed tomorrow.
She is housebroken and has free roam of the house. She has never been in a crate. She loves toys, is not destructive and sleeps all night. She has been around the preschool grandchildren of her former owner. She does tend to jump so it would probably be better if any children in her adoptive home were 12 or older. She LOVES to be petted.
Besides regular exercise, Princess needs to learn that she is no longer the boss! She needs discipline and obedience training. Having another dog in the house will be good for her also so she can learn the role of a dog. She has some quirky behaviors such as growling and wagging her tail at the same time. We believe that with structure, consistent rules, and exercise, Princess will develop into an even more beautiful girl, both inside and out.
