Please welcome Lucy to RAGOM. Lucy is 15 months of love, kisses, and puppy energy. She was born September 30th, 2012. Lucy is a purebred Golden angel who came into RAGOM after her owner downsized and felt Lucy deserved more space. He bought her as a puppy and she was very loved. She is a gorgeous lighter color with striking brown eyes, pearly white teeth, and a jet black nose. Lucy came into RAGOM spayed, and up-to-date on all shots.
Lucy has been with us for about a week and I can't stand how gorgeous and sweet she is. As gorgeous and sweet as she is, please remember, she still has a lot of puppy in her. She LOVES to play fetch and tug-of-war. She loves to walk and does very well on a leash if you're walking. If you try and run her, she will turn around and bite at the leash, as she wants to PLAY! She does fine with other dogs, but would do best with dogs that are younger rather than older (PUPPY ENERGY). Lucy loves kids, but still does jump up when she first meets someone.
She knows basic commands: sit, stay, shake, and heel. She also knows "find your ball, Lucy." She would need a family that would continue to work on her training, and realize that she has had a lot of changes and that has had an impact on her. Love, training, and patience. She is completely potty trained and goes to the door when she needs to go out. She also kennels well. I have not let her have free roam yet, but her surrendering owner did and said she did great. She will chew socks and some other items if they are left out. She does NOT seem food motivated. She loves to ride in the car and does so very well. She was unsure of the cat, but once Tigger started to swat/play with her, she wanted to play. She will bite at your sleeve if you're playing with her. She listens very well, though, and will stop when told. I have not seen any anxiety or counter surfing.
Please remember that although she is a gorgeous Golden, she is still very puppy-like and has a lot of puppy behaviors. Her forever home should be a family who is committed to continued training and frequent exercise. If there is no physical fence, she would need boundary training. Children are fine, but 7 and older would be best as she may knock down younger children.
