Introducing our latest foster, happy-go-lucky Easton. Welcome, boy! This guy is amazing; well-mannered, well-trained, and he fit right in from the get go. Plus, he and Rudy, our resident GR, get along famously.
Easton arrived at our home on Saturday, November 24, 2012. It was a painful, tearful surrender, as his owner is going through major life changes. That said, he settled in beautifully and is one silly, loveable hound! It's clear Easton came from a loving home. When we picked him up, he had toys, treats, grooming tools, and a good quality bag of dog food. We know how much he will be missed, but we know how much he will be loved in a new home.
Easton is a five year old, pure bred male (neutered) Golden Retriever. He's house trained, crated trained (although we haven't set up the crate - he doesn't need it), and loves people, kids, and dogs. He met Rudy without incident, and the two have been playing happily ever since. He really doesn't have any bad manners. He's great with kids and dogs, and all people. He doesn't counter surf, get into inappropriate items, doesn't chew, etc. We are pretty sure that this guy will get adopted very quickly.
Easton is a well trained, and an absoultely wonderful dog. He loves to sleep in our bed, but also does fine curled up on the floor next to you. He's food oriented, but doesn't need much training. We haven't walked him on the leash yet (we want him micro chipped first, just in case), but he did well when we met him in the parking lot when we picked him up - no tugging. He has no destructive behavior, but has mild storm anxiety, from what I've told - tries to hide under a bed (although we haven't witnessed that yet). He's great when I'm at work, and is super happy to see us when we come home.
Easton loves to be brushed and groomed and has this cute head of hair that sticks out on top. He loves to play with toys and tennis balls, but is also happy to snuggle with us while we watch tv or hang out in the living room. His favorite thing is to be petted on his front legs and his behind.
We'll get him to the vet next week to be updated on vaccinations and have a wellness exam.
We are so thankful to be able to foster this sweet boy. Welcome to RAGOM, Easton!
