Sweet Annie is back with RAGOM and we are so lucky to have her!
Annie first came to RAGOM a couple of years ago as a retired breeder and soon after found a loving home. Her adoptive mom gave her a wonderful home for over a year and then made the difficult but loving decision to return Annie to RAGOM after things beyond her control no longer allowed her to provide the life she thought Annie deserves.
From the time Annie first came into our house, she has been nothing but a joy to have around. She greets you with that wonderful Golden smile and wagging tail and she loves affection.
As she got comfy in her new environment around new people and pups, she seemed a little timid at first but is gaining more confidence here with each passing day. An example of her overcoming her fears: the stairs were a little scary at first but now she handles them without a problem.
Given that she’s lived in a home with a few different families in the past couple years, we will consider families with kids ages 6 and older.
Annie’s yard had a physical fence at her adoptive mom’s house and Annie tried to dig under it. So she would not be safe with just a physical fence or boundary training, and instead would be best on a supervised tie-out or leash.
Annie quickly fell into the routine of morning breakfast and going outside to sniff and potty, accompanied by her two foster brothers. She gets excited at meal time and almost seems to lead us to where the food is stored in case we forget! Speaking of food, she takes treats so gently and waits her turn and even will sit or lay down to earn them.
Annie does really well having other dogs to watch and learn from. She seems to enjoy their company but doesn’t think twice before nudging them out of the way to be front and center for affection from her people.
We’ve only heard her bark once in the time that she’s been here, and that was when our lab was a little too wiggly in her personal space. It wasn’t an aggressive bark, rather more of an older sister reprimanding her little brother!
