Welcome Ms. Cassidy to RAGOM! Cassidy came to our home about five weeks ago. She is a one year old female Golden Retriever with a gorgeous dark red coat and an adorable "zipper" cowlick down her nose. When Cassidy first arrived, she was nervous and skittish. She didn't know how to act in a home environment. Thanks to our two outgoing Goldens, she has quickly learned the great things that come with living inside, like comfy dog beds and the endless amounts of toys that we have here! Since she had previously lived outdoors, Cassidy is not yet housebroken, although she is doing better every day. She still has accidents occasionally, but she's doing better every week. She doesn't currently know any commands, but we are working on them every day.
Although Cassidy is young and seems very social around my two dogs, she does revert back to a shy and nervous girl when there are strangers involved and when my dogs aren't around. She definitely turns to them for reassurance, so we are currently requiring her to have another large sized, confident dog in her forever home. Cassidy would love a playmate, but it's not absolutely necessary, as she is just as happy to play with her people as she is another dog. We are also requiring a fenced in yard at this time, mostly due to her background as a breeder dog and the possibility that she could be a flight risk if she got spooked. She has been doing well and she is always ready to come back inside after I let her out, so that requirement could possibly change as we get to know her more and her personality really starts to shine. Cassidy has been exposed to cats and shows zero interest in them. She has also been around kids from 5 years on up. She does great with all of them! Ms. Cass is learning how to destroy stuffed toys from our puppy, Sully, and she is learning that there is a difference between dog toys and household items! I do not trust Cassidy with free roam (both due to potty training and destructive "puppy" behavior.) Cassidy has shown no anxieties and is fine with thunderstorms. Now that she is comfortable in our house, we are starting to see the true Cassidy emerge. She has the sweetest personality and just wants someone to love and pet her. When she wags her tail, her whole body wiggles! She is a very nice dog and one of our favorite fosters to date!
Cassidy has had a negative fecal and heartworm test. She had been vaccinated for rabies prior to coming into RAGOM, but she has not gotten her other vaccinations yet. She will get those prior to adoption. Cassidy weighed in at 49 pounds at her vet visit. We are guessing her ideal weight to be right around 50 pounds at this time. She is a petite Golden! She will also be spayed in late May, at which time she will be available for adoption. That doesn't mean, of course, that she can't meet with a potential family and be adoption pending before that time! If you are interested in this sweet girl, please contact RAGOM today!
