Please let me introduce Bevo (He is named after the mascot, BEVO, at the University of Texas), who just arrived in Elk River Minnesota, after a very long transport from Sioux Falls, SD. Bevo came to us at 5pm and other than a little panting by 8pm he had settled into our pack so seamlessly you wouldn’t know he hadn’t been with us for several weeks. This was even after the first order of business – BATH – Bevo did not want to get in at first but once we coaxed him in the tub he stood perfectly still until we were finished, very well behaved in the bath.
Bevo is a purebred 6 year old GR weighing in at 62 lbs. He is such a sweet boy and just loves to be petted. Has the golden nudge down pat, but does listen when you tell him, “That’s enough go laydown now”. He will go and lay down but will be back in a few minutes trying again for the petting, takes 1-2 more times but he will go laydown and wait until he sees you get up, then will gladly follow you from room to room, just in case you decide you have some more time for petting. What is so sweet about Bevo is once you lay your hand on him he stands as still as a statue taking in all the loving you are giving him, it is clear he is starved for human contact.
Prior to arriving in RAGOM to begin his ‘golden life’ Bevo was kept outside with very little contact except for feeding. In spite of this, Bevo is very well behaved and is responding well to commands. Bevo loves to go on walks and seems to have the energy of a much younger dog. He is completely enamored of the kong, especially with just a little peanut butter in it.
Bevo was just recently neutered, is totally UTD on his shots, micro-chipped, and on tick and heartworm preventative. Bevo’s coat is a beautiful golden red color. See pic below where Bevo was posing then was distracted by squirrel chatter thankfully we were able snap pic quickly and still get a good shot.
Stay tuned for updates as we get to know this very sweet boy.
