Profile

Emily came to RAGOM as one of 13 dogs from a hoarding situation. She is a healthy girl who is shy when first meeting people and dogs but warms up quickly. She is easily spooked by new sounds and children's voices and fast movements, so her future home cannot have children. Emily must have a large confident dog to help her adjust to daily home life. With proper training, Emily may not need a physical fence in her forever home as long as there is a sound plan to keep her safe and no invisible fence.

Hey everyone! I’ll bet you’ve been wondering what I’ve been doing lately. Well I’ve had a pretty great month or so since you last heard about me. I've been visiting some new folks, because my original fosters had to go take care of some family stuff up north.

My new fosters and their awesome Golden girl, Charlee, took me in for a visit about three weeks ago. It’s gone so well here that I’ve ended up moving in with them so they can be my new foster family. That way I won’t be moving around so much and I can concentrate on finding a forever family. These RAGOM people are awesome! They’re all going to work together to find someone to adopt me!

Just like at my first foster home, it’s been important for me to have another dog in the house to learn from. Charlee's really OK with me just being me, which I appreciate. She has a bestie, LoLa, the black lab next door. When all three of us get together, it’s a blast!

I love playing with Charlee and Lola the neighbor dog

They’re both bigger than me, but I’m faster! I haven’t figured out why they like chasing after tennis balls and Frisbees so much, but I have to admit, it looks fun and I might try it one of these days.

We spent the first week that I was here figuring out the way things work—every family’s different you know. But I’ve been surprised and really happy to learn that my new folks are just as nice as the first ones. They also let me know that I have to listen, sit for treats, and go outside when they say. (I still don’t like doorways, but that’s getting better.)

I sort of surprised Foster Dad one day, by hiding in the egress window well. He looked everywhere! When he found me, he just picked me up and lifted me up out of there. I tried hiding there again the next day. That afternoon, a wall mysteriously appeared around that window well.

Both of the folks always talk softly to me and pet me every chance they get. Wow, what a life! I’ve even started following them around the house and cuddling up, because I know they’re going to scratch my belly and let me sit next to them on the chair. They seem to watch Twins games a lot and I really like baseball, too!

Have I mentioned that I can be a little shy? Well, I’m working on that, too. And as I've gotten used to things, I've really started having fun and enjoying life in Minnesota. Charlee and my new foster parents are just like what I will need in my forever home:

  • a family without kids,
  • a fenced-in yard, and
  • a calm resident dog to show me the ropes

So, now I'm looking for a new family to welcome me into their lives full time. Let's get together for a visit soon!

Please join me in welcoming Emily to the RAGOM family!

Emily is a 1½-year-old Golden mix and is just as sweet as she looks. Weighing in at a petite 29 pounds with a honey gold color, she looks like a mini Golden Retriever. Emily spent the first month of her RAGOM life "up north" with her temporary foster family who introduced her to living the Golden life and she so appreciates them giving her a great start!

Although she is still initially cautious when meeting new people, she will quickly warm up and want to sit next to you for scratches for as long as you can give them. She is pretty laid back when inside the house but when she's outside, she will present the cutest play bows and romping—much like a fawn, so cute to watch!

  Section type: Photo Collection

With the proper training, Emily will not necessarily need a fenced-in yard as she bonds well with confident dogs and eventually her humans. She runs outside, does her business, and then wants to come right back inside.

If you're looking for Golden "forever puppy," and you think your home can provide everything that little Emily needs for a long Golden life, please contact your placement adviser to learn more.
