This is the most recent information available; however, it may change as we learn more about the dog.

Everyone, please give a warm RAGOM welcome to Dewey! He is a very cute and little 1-year-old Golden mix. Dewey was found as a stray in Sioux Falls last summer, and when his time was up at the shelter, the staff contacted RAGOM for help. Dewey is up-to-date on vaccines, is neutered, and weighs roughly 50 lbs. He needs to gain about 10 lbs, but besides that, he is in perfect health. Really, the only way you can tell he is a mix is because of his adorable little ears and unique eye color; the rest of him is all Golden!

Dewey has a very calm and sweet dispostion. We go on a 30- to 45-minute walk in the morning and he loves to sniff EVERYTHING! He does pull slightly at times, but not too bad. He stays in his crate while I am at work and is not distructive towards his bedding, and only barks a litte after I first leave. When he is out of his kennel, he will come to me for some cuddles and kisses, and then he is content laying on a dog bed close by. I would consider Dewey a medium- to low-energy dog. He also knows "sit" and "lay down," but does not seem to know his name yet!

Dewey's life so far has been a rough one with being a stray and then staying in a kennel eviroment for a long period of time while at the shelter and waiting for a foster home to open up. This has resulted in Dewey developing some insecurties. As of right now, Dewey needs to go to a home where he can be an only dog due to resource guarding food, treats, and high-value toys from other dogs. He will need an adoptive family that is patient and willing to help him overcome his insecurities and gain confidence. Dewey has not shown any signs of resource guarding towards people, so it seems his issue is only towards other dogs.

This little guy is truly a sweetheart that got dealt a bad hand, but things are looking up for Dewey now! He has so much potential and really deserves the best. That's it for now; we will update again as we continue to learn more about Dewey every day!
