I'd like to introduce Allie 12-374. She is a 3 year old female Golden Retriever-Black Lab mix. She weighs around 72 lbs. She has beautiful shiny black fur.

Allie had her wellness check and was in good health other than she tested positive for Lyme disease and has very itchy skin caused mostly by a skin infection. The testing positive for Lyme disease means only that she has been bitten ,at some time, by the type of tick that carries Lyme disease. Allie is being treated for the skin infection and is itching less every day.

Allie was spayed on 11/21/2012 by the great people at MNSNAP. They did a excellent job and she has healed very well.

When I picked up Allie from her transporter she was shy and pretty scared of me. I talked to her on the way home and she was ok with me by the time we got home. Allie met my resident dog and 2 fosters with no problems. She also met my 2 cats and 2 baby kittens with no problems. Alliev was nervous the first night as most new dogs are.
The second day Allie started to really warm up to me and seemed pretty relaxed in her new home. This was very fast compared to most dogs that can take up to 2 weeks to really settle in. Allie was very affectionate to me and just loved any and all attention.

After being spayed Allie was moved to another foster. For some reason Allie did not like the husband and growled at him any time he got anywhere near him. We are thinking that possibly he reminded her if something in her past. Not really sure what brought this out of a otherwise seemingly very calm and happy dog. Allie was brought back to me for everyone's good.
Yesterday I had a furnace repair man come and since Allie might not like him I put her and my other 2 foster dogs in my upstairs bedroom and bathroom. They barked and whined some but not real bad, After the furnace man left I went up and let them out. Allie seemed to be in a panic and it took over a half hour to calm and comfort her. This seemed a bit strange because I have left Allie in the house many times with just the other dogs and she was fine. It obviously has something to do with being confined without me with her. I would think with proper treatment/training that Allie can overcome these fears.

Allie is 100% house trained and no other bad habits other than she jumps up on couches and sleeps in bed.. She will sit, lay down,come and stay pretty well so she has had some training. Allie walks pretty well on leash.

A few things that I think at this time, Allie should have in her furever home are:
* no small kids

*Another dog

* More training and help with her anxiety* daily walksDo you have a place in your heart and home for Allie? To meet and find out please contact your placement adviser.

Allie and I would like to Thank those who sponsor and donate to RAGOM and all those who volunteer for RAGOM who make this all possible.
