Hello all and a big welcome to to Gage, as he enters the RAGOM family and starts his trip on the road to his forever home.
Gage is a 4 year old neutered male weighing in at 81 lbs. He has been to the Vet, brought up to date on all shots, stool was negative, and his blood work was all excellent. His surrendering owner also noted that he suffers from seizures that were occurring on a monthly basis and also had multiple ones over a two day period. He has had one since being with me. The RAGOM Vet diagnosis epilepsy and is starting med treatments that have to be administered daily. He will have to be watched closely for the next month and then a recheck by the vet to see how he is progressing. This will probably be a life long treatment, but don't let this worry you as this guy is one super boy and well worth what ever it takes. This is a common treatment and can easily be transferred from the RAGOM Vet to the his forever home vet.
Since Gage walked through our front door it was like a bright ray of sun shine walked in. This guy is the most friendly, gentle, and happy guy I have yet had the pleasure of fostering. He has totally taken over our house. He likes everyone. Even my grouchy old female Springer tolerates him and believe you me, that is something. He is fully house trained and has run of the house. He learned at his SO home to sleep where ever and that is just fine here also. He likes the couch and will sneak into bed during the night. He has impeccable manners and seems to know some commands. He loves to go for daily walks with the rest of the pack and loves the lake. The first time in the water he almost turned inside out he was so happy. He is very gentle and takes a treat with the utmost gentleness. When you first meet him he can be a little shy and wary, but once he trust you (about 2 minutes) he just explodes with love. He is also that way when he is in a new situation or unfamiliar territory. Cautious, but curious. He can be left home alone for several hours and he does just fine. He crates up when in the vehicle, but also likes to ride in the back seat of the car with his head out the window. SO said he gets along with cats and likes children. Also likes to play catch. He is very playful with our resident male Golden. They have become buddy-buddy and are together all the time. Where one goes the other will follow.
All in all, Gage is a great foster. He is so happy and friendly. He epitomizes the Golden Retriever in disposition and looks. (I guess I forgot to mention what a handsome boy he is) He just lights up a room with his happy playful disposition. Someone out there in adoption land is going to be one lucky family to get Gage.
