Welcome to RAGOM, Jake! Jake is a 5- to 6-year-old, 76-pound, neutered male. We aren't sure of his exact mix, but we believe it is Golden Retriever and Setter. He is a very handsome dog with the cutest white beard and mustache. Jake is very sweet and loves to cuddle! He is NOT OK with cats and cannot go to a home with them. We haven't had a chance to test him with kids yet.
Jake met our two resident dogs with no issues. He runs around and they chase each other when they are outside, but he hasn't been really interested in playing when they are inside. I think he would do fine with or without another dog.
Jake was found as a stray in Iowa. We have a fenced yard and have noticed that Jake really likes to explore the perimeter of our fence. Jake seems to have some prey drive, so for now, we are requiring a fence for him. He does have good recall and responds to his name. Jake knows how to sit and shake.
We haven't seen any negative behaviors. He hasn't counter-surfed or had any accidents since he has been here. He respects baby gates. We have allowed him free roam after a few nights with no problems. He hasn't barked more than a few times. We have noticed that when one of our resident dogs barks, he whines a little.
Jake is your typical Golden, Velcro love bug. He wants to be with people all the time and often seeks attention. He is more than willing to lay down at your feet and just be near you.
We added a picture of Jake playing in the snow with our residents, Carly and Bella.
