Hello world! My name is Malibu, I'm a purebred golden girl and I am looking for a forever home. Let me tell you my story.
First off, I just want you to know that I'm a gorgeous girl and I know it. I just turned 1 year last month and celebrated it with the only family I knew since I was 8 weeks old. They were very nice and had three small people for me to play with, however one of the small people developed an allergy. How someone could me allergic to wonderful me, I'll never know. Unfortunately I couldn't spend much time with my family, so they made the difficult decision to let me go and I'm looking for another home. Foster dad tells me I'm a petite girl, weighing in at 46 pounds with a slender build and I must be part "lap dog". I have beautiful brown fur that is very fine and soft and of course, I have gorgeous brown eyes.
Since I'm coming into my teenage years, foster dad let me start a blog which I'll try to keep updated here. In the meantime, dad wants to get back on the computer and tell you some more about me. So, keep tuned into my blog and I'll let you know about my adventures looking for a family that needs a GFF (golden friend forever) because I'm it!
Foster dad here. Malibu has been with us since Friday night and she sure is a sweetie, a real Velcro dog. She was a bit timid when she came to us but she seems to be adjusting nicely. We've had nothing more than the usual puppy issues, like running off and hiding shoes, trying to get into things she shouldn't, all typical puppy behaviors, but nothing destructive. She is housebroken, no accidents, kennel trained, and is getting along with both of our resident dogs. It sounds like Malibu hasn't had much experience with cats so we don't know how she would respond to them. She does well in our fenced in yard, respects the baby gates in the house, and is learning to walk on leash using a gentle leader. At 13 months, she does have a lot of energy and gets into playful moods where she demands attention and starts bouncing off the walls and jumping over furniture or anything else in her way. So, in other words, she's a typical puppy.
So far, Malibu seems to be learning from our older dogs and follows them around the house and out into the yard, learning the routine in the house. I think Malibu would do best with a family with an adult dog. A dog old
enough to teach Malibu, but young enough to put up with a puppy for the next year or two. Older kids in the house would be great and a fenced in yard for Malibu to run would be a bonus.
Malibu has not been spayed yet but has an appointment for later this week. She should be ready to start meeting families toward the end of the month after she recovers. Contact your RAGOM placement advisor if you would like to meet her. Until then, keep checking back for updates to Malibu's blog as she writes about new experiences she has.
