Gus is a six-week old puppy who was rescued by a Good Samaritan along with 4 of his littermates and given to RAGOM. His dad was a purebred Golden Retriever and mom was a yellow lab. Gus was nice enough to pose for me and I was able to get what I think is the best picture (Gus 12-224 c). Gus is not quite as wavy as his two brothers. He is lying by my side sleeping as I type and is such a little sweetie. He will be a very handsome adult dog, possibly looking very much like a flat-coated retriever. We have split up the 5 puppies, with the two females at one foster home and I’m the lucky foster mom that is fostering the three male puppies. I can’t speak to the females, but the males are very good little puppies.
The original owner must have done something right in that these three pups are very social. They love people. I have to be careful to not step on them since they love to surround me. We go for walkabouts around the yard to get exercise and we look like the Pied Piper with pups following. I walk all over and they just follow behind. It is too cute. The three go into a kennel at night and have been sleeping quietly until about 7:00 a.m. So far, they have kept their kennel clean which is amazing for six-week old pups. Very social, very good, calm puppies. Will be wonderful adult dog pets for some lucky family.
The pups have had their first set of puppy shots and their first dose of deworming meds. They will be ready to be adopted in about two weeks after they are neutered but can start meeting families now. My main criteria for adopters of puppies is that the adopters are looking forward to taking their new pup to obedience training classes. We have learned that puppies that attend two or three sessions of group obedience classes become well-mannered, well-socialized adult dogs and are rarely surrendered back to rescue. If you are looking for an adorable, friendly, happy puppy to mold into a wonderful adult dog, please notify your placement advisor.
