Cheyenne is a gorgeous retired breeding Golden. She is 8 years old. As with most typical retired breeding girls, she is quite shy and will take time to learn to trust humans.
Surprisingly, she is ok with traveling. She cannot jump in a vehicle by any means and just needs a big butt boost. She likes her crate and so far, resides in it most of the time. (We use a soft-sided one with mesh sides). She has only been with us a short time, so we are still feeding her in the crate (water inside as well).
So far she has had a few trips in the vehicle and she has also been to the groomer, which she did fine. Cheyenne has a gorgeous thick coat, beautiful gold.
Cheyenne came in with a severe injury to her left ear. She has had surgery for this and it is healing pretty well. Next week she will get stitches out and get spayed.
Cheyenne gets along fine with our two resident dogs: Eddie, a Corgi, and Bridger, a Goldendoodle. She really does not pay too much attention to them.
She needs guidance yet to go outside but, once out, she will follow me all over or just by herself checking out surroundings. She has a beautiful gait when she runs or trots. Love to watch her. We enjoy "strolling" in the backyard together.
Cheyenne is not food motivated at all (but she does like cheese bites!). When fed, we mix in moist dog food with the dry as she is still on antibiotics from the bad ear infection (it was nasty) and we mix in. Sometimes she will eat in her crate the same time as the other two dogs and other times she will eat once everyone is gone and it is quieter.
Lots of love and patience… hugs and pets.
