Mabel is fully potty trained and will bark at the door when she needs to go out. (Be aware, she will also bark when she wants to go out to play.) Mabel walks pretty well on a leash, but with some minor pulling when she wants to go greet another dog.
Mabel is a medium-sized Golden (perfect-sized, I think). She likes to snuggle with you on your chairs and in your bed if you allow it, so her size is ideal for that. She has a beautiful coat and her feathers are gorgeous.
Mabel has shown some resource guarding and air snaps, so her adoptive home should have no children or older children who can be taught how to safely interact with Mabel in these situations.
Mabel has been fully vetted, is spayed, and is up to date with vaccinations. She did very well at her vet appointment, standing nicely for our vet to fully check her out. She is also on heartworm preventative and flea treatments.
She has so far been left loose in the house when we are not home and overnight with the other dogs. She does great for the most part. She hasn't gotten into things she shouldn’t and sleeps through the night without needing to potty. She does not kennel well, but will respect a baby gate if needed.
The perfect family for Mabel would not leave her home alone for more than 6 hours. They would have a fellow dog for her to play with (although I believe she would be fine alone as well). They would be willing to include her fully in their life, make her a full member of the family, and include her in their activities. They would need to take Mabel for daily exercise walks or even runs.
Mabel is an exceptional dog. Do you have the qualities and room in your heart for this sweetheart?
