|This is the most recent information available; however, it may change as we learn more about the dog.|
Golden is a beautiful 5 year old, 78 lbs Golden Retriever. He is currently in foster care with his equally handsome brother Sam 15-151. Golden and his brother ended up with RAGOM after a relocation with their family.
Golden will be getting neutered on 7/6/14. He will also be seeing an eye specialist on 7/8/15 as he does have some vision issues. For this reason Golden will need to go to an adoptive home with another dog. Golden relies a lot on Sam to follow and help guide him around the yard and somewhat inside the house. He also has Lyme’s disease and will be getting checked out at the vet on 7/3/15 to make sure he is doing ok. He is currently on monthly heartworm and flea and tick maintenance.
Golden is even more of a people pleaser than his brother, he is a true Velcro boy! He gets along with both his foster sister and foster brother and of course the brother he has known all his life, Sam. Golden has a flat coat unlike his brother who has very cute curls.
We would LOVE for these two boys to find their forever home together. They are very bonded and will eat and drink out of the same bowls at the same time. It is very heartwarming to see how they have each other and just how close they really are.
I do not know if Golden would get along with cats as he has not been cat tested since coming into RAGOM.
Golden and Sam have lived as outside dogs so we are currently working on housetraining and of course these two are smart boys and they are doing really well. They will crate when I am unable to tether one or both of them to me. I have been able to let them roam the kitchen and dining room without incident on day two with close supervision. Neither of them have even attempted to lift a leg which makes foster mom very happy. As time goes by they will earn more trust and I will expand their inside “world” to more parts of the house. As each area is added to their “world” they will learn that the house is their crate, not just the actual crate.
If you are interested in making Golden a part of your family please let your placement advisor know.
