At A Glance
It is our pleasure to introduce stunning Miss Hannah! Hannah is an 8 year old spayed purebred Golden Retriever who was surrendered to RAGOM because her owner traveled for work and felt Hannah deserved a family that could spend more time with her.
Hannah was able to see the RAGOM vet on her first day with us. She weighs 75# which is a good weight for her. She is heartworm and parasite free and her blood work was normal. Hannah was UTD and is now microchipped. She does suffer from allergies and has a slight skin infection from scratching herself so she's on antibiotics and an antihistamine. We're going to try a high quality food, lots of brushing, and weekly baths to see if that helps with her itchiness. Her right ear is infected. The vet gave it a good cleaning and we'll continue to clean and administer medicated drops for the next couple of weeks.
I wish I could put into words how cute and sweet this girl is! She's on the short side with a beautiful long light blonde coat. She doesn't walk, she prances every where she goes. She has the beautiful frosted face of a mature Golden, but that is the only sign of her age. She hops right into a car, up on a bed, and keeps the pace brisk on our early morning walks. At first she pulled like freight train with a flat collar, but accepted a Gentle Leader with only occassionally trying to rub it off in the grass. This morning I walked her with just a flat collar and she did much better. She is 100% housebroken and has free roam while we're gone for a full work day. She contentedly lays on the kitchen floor when we leave for work.
Hannah follows us from room to room when we're home and loves to be petted and have her ears rubbed. She knows how to give the Golden nudge or Golden paw for attention, but she's not overly needy. At night Hannah sleeps quietly in our bedroom or in the adjoining master bath.
We live on a lake and Hannah LOVES the water. She likes to walk in it, stick her nose in it, lay in it, and especially retrieve her tennis balls from the water. She loves a good back roll in the grass when she's done in the lake.
Hannah was the only dog at her previous home. She's not crazy about sharing her space with resident dogs Josie (3) and Bailey (11). Josie has opted to avoid Hannah and Bailey chooses to ignore her. So other than some grumbling on Hannah's part we haven't had any squabbles. Until we see Hannah enjoying the company of other dogs we're going to say Hannah would do best as an only dog. She met the resident cat without a problem.
