Amber 12- 240 is a 6 year old female who moved into our house and made herself at home - charming us immediately. She bonds with people quickly. In fact, she looked longingly out the door as the transporter couple drove away – it seemed they liked her and she liked them.
Her ancestry is a mystery, although she has some Husky like qualities as well as a typical Golden personality. Her story is a heart breaker – she was in a shelter in Kentucky with her sister and their time had “run out” when she was rescued and brought to RAGOM.
She is returning to RAGOM after living happily in a family for several years, but lately she was escaping when a door was left open and would bark at people. Her family had several growing children and making sure she was on leash, in the fenced yard or in the house was becoming a problem. She is sweet, affectionate, allows you to examine her, does not resource guard, made friends with our Resident (RD) hound dog, will do anything for a treat, sits, comes, shakes, shakes other hand and high fives! She bonded with both of us and, although she came with her dog bed, she prefers sleeping with an adult - which we don’t mind, but she would be easily directed otherwise.
One thing is clear – Amber does not like the mail carrier. She will begin barking when she sees the mail truck just turning the corner into our street. For this reason she needs a secure fence and to be on a leash at all times when out of the house or not in the fenced yard. But, given this really her only issue, she is a gem.
She is a petite 40+ pounds and checked out all OK at her first vet visit. She is UTD with her vaccines. No health issues and no medications except heartworm and tick and flea preventative. She fit into our house with our RD who is about the same size. So if you are not picky about breed, but want a sweet girl who will love you forever, Amber would be the one.
