Welcome Brock 15-102 into the RAGOM family!

He has only been with us 3 days, but he has been an easy houseguest. He is housebroken (no accidents!) and sleeps through the night on the floor in the bedroom. That is very unusual for the 1st few nights in a new home. He takes treats nicely, gets along with other dogs and LOVES people.

Brock has exhibited no aggression issues, no eating issues, no fear issues and no storm anxiety. He has let me take away food and bones, does not mind petting while he is eating or my fingers in his bowl! He does cry or whine for a few minutes when I crate him and leave, but seems relaxed in his crate when I return. Last night’s storm and the noisy construction next door have not bothered him at all. Our resident dog gets along well with Brock. She is older, and only wants to play a little but he is OK with that. He has lots of energy, but settles down and is calm in the house. He likes his walks and might make a good running partner with some training.

Brock was a stray so his exact birthdate is not known. The vet estimates about 2 years old. He is up to date with vaccines, has been neutered, microchipped and is a healthy guy.

He has a very unusual look. I’ve been told that he looks like a bear from the front, a fox from the back and a tiger in the middle. He has a very broad head…..bigger than what seems right for his more petite (55 pound) body. I just can’t get a good picture to show you how really cute he is! The brindle coloring is just beautiful. He is obviously not a purebred golden, but is as sweet as any Golden Retriever!

He definitely needs some training on basic manners:

  • He jumps up when he gets excited.
  • He has put his paws on the countertop twice.
  • He pulls on a leash.
  • He tries to bolt out the door.

These are all very trainable behaviors and Brock is learning all these niceties very quickly. I get the feeling that he really wants to learn how to be a better dog! We have seen improvement in all these areas in the short time he has been with us. That said, he will need a family that has time to devote to his training for him to be the perfect dog that I know he can be.
