Meet Hallie! She is an adorable 10 week old puppy. She weighs about 11 pounds and looks all black but every day we are noticing more brown highlights coming in on her coat. Hallie’s mom was a purebred Golden Retriever and her dad was the neighbor’s purebred Boxer. Hallie is a typical puppy- playful, energetic, and nothing is safe from becoming a possible chew toy! She may not look like a typical golden, but her personality is all golden. She follows us everywhere already, she loves to give kisses, snuggle and be held, and she is fantastic at playing fetch. It took us almost two years to teach our resident golden to play fetch and actually bring us back the toy; Hallie does it almost every time already, with toys that are about as big as her! Hallie does great with our resident dog; they wrestle constantly and zoom around in the backyard together. She is getting the hang of walking on a leash as well as ‘sit’ and ‘down’, but would definitely benefit from obedience classes as she grows. It’s a great way to bond as well as continue to socialize her and help her grow into a well-mannered family member. Hallie sleeps well in the crate all night, she doesn’t make a peep. She does fine crated for a work-day as well, with a bathroom break at lunch. We have had her almost a week and only had one accident, so she is doing very well with potty-training so far. She could live with or without another dog and she does not need a fence as she would be fine on a tie out or could eventually be boundary trained. She could live with kids of any age but remember she is a puppy and has very sharp puppy teeth and likes to chew on everything, including people right now! Also she will be a big dog and could knock children down in excitement as she grows. She did meet a cat and wasn’t quite sure what to think so she ran away from it. Puppies are a lot of work but they are definitely worth it! Hallie will be spayed in the next couple of weeks and then will be ready to go to her forever home.
