Brutus and Benji are a beautiful bonded pair of Pure Bred Goldens.  They are littermates, are 7.5 years old and will be 8 in June. They have been together all of their lives with the same loving owner and they need to stay together as they are best friends. They were surrendered to RAGOM because their owner relocated and was unable to bring them with.  They are extremely well socialized, very friendly, happy, housetrained, affectionate, and have free roam with no destructive behaviors. Brutus loves to carry around stuffed animals and occasionally may amputate a limb or head. He may carry socks and shoes around if he can’t find a toy but he does not chew on anything besides his toys and he easily gives anything back to you. Brutus especially loves to hang out outside and just look around. He does not seem to mind the cold at all!

Both boys rode great in the car on our drive here and met our 2 resident dogs with ease and friendliness.  They became adjusted here immediately and set about to feel at home. This just attests to their stable and loving upbringing. They seem quite secure. Both boys are good at coming when they are called. They know sit, shake and lie down but do not necessarily think these are important qualities and comply only when they want to.  They are eager to please however and I think they would appreciate training in this area. 

They are both overweight. We have not been to the vet yet but do not believe there are any health issues with Brutus other than his weight that I estimate to be 115 lbs. He is a tall guy and I think his ideal weight may be about 85 lbs. A horse stepped on him when he was a puppy and had a broken leg and shoulder. The shoulder has a pin in it and the leg healed fine, just a little crooked. These do not seem to bother him at all. Brutus loves to be outside and really enjoys looking out over the deck. Squirrels do seem to interest him and he did chase one down the yard. A dog show was on TV the other night and Brutus was excited and did a little happy dance and a few barks. It was very cute! Brutus has no trouble with stairs or getting into the car. He is playful with Benji outside but inside he likes to find a place where he can preferably see out and rests nicely, unless of course there are any hands in the room that could be petting him instead of whatever else they are doing! He is excited to see any new people who come into the house but does not jump up. Brutus likes to explore but is not a runner and I don’t think they would need a physical fence. They lived on a farm for many years and had free run outside. They loved the cats on the farm and they grew up with children.  These guys are very gentle, they just want lots of attention and to hang out outside.  Their owner said they were seldom on a leash, as they do not run away. I did take them for a leashed walk and they were great, they loved the walk and did not pull much. I have not seen any behavior problems at all with them. They are absolutely wonderful! If you are looking for 2 stunningly beautiful Goldens with great personalities and loving easy natures and are willing to help them slim down, these may be the guys for you!
