Gracie has been with her foster family a little over a week now and here is what we have learned about her so far. Even though she is from China, we do believe she understands some English.
Gracie has done well in our house with two other large resident dogs after slow introductions. She will occasionally engage in play with them one at a time. Gracie would do fine in a home with other large dogs but most likely not a home with cats due to a high prey drive.
Gracie is still a puppy therefore she has a lot of energy and requires a couple of walks a day. After she is old enough I think she could make a great running partner.
Gracie does have a few behavioral items to work through. She loves toys and thinks all of them are hers, therefore she can only have one toy at a time right now or she hoards them. Gracie also likes to counter surf, which we found out very quickly. We are working through this along with some other manners that she was most likely never taught.
In Gracie's future home it would be best if there were no children under 10 because of how much energy she has and because she does jump on people and could easily knock down a smaller child.
Gracie will also require a fenced in yard and an active family so she can get the exercise she needs. Gracie, like most goldens, also loves attention and being with her people.
