Please welcome Phantom to the RAGOM family. Phantom is 14 weeks old and female, and came to Minnesota from Alabama with her 5 littermates after being left at a shelter there. Phantom is being fostered with her sister, Sabrina, where the two are quickly learning the Golden ways to a GReat life from RAGOM Resident Dog, Honey. The Three Amigas, Resident Cats, Mama Lily, Gitter, and Pinto, provide all the necessary lessons to living with felines. Gitter and Pinto are also rescue littermates, so I suspect there seems to be some special bonding going on amongst the two sets of siblings. Having an all-girl household makes for some pretty silly shenanigans around here at times!
Phantom and her brothers and sisters are part Golden Retriever and likely Border Collie, based upon appearance and behaviors, so she is both a very bright puppy and a quick learner. I would prefer Phantom go to a home with a fence, but this is not a requirement. Phantom follows me as closely as my shadow, and would likely walk right into a passing vehicle if I were to do so ahead of her. She is also quite nippy, so children 10 years or older will be required to learn that she is not being aggressive, but is being a typical mouthy retriever puppy combined with a baby dog who wants to herd or chase whatever crosses her path.
Phantom's furever home will be an active one, where her human family is totally committed to keeping her busy for the rest of her life. This goes well beyond just beginners obedience courses. Phantom is a combination of two of the smartest breeds of dogs, and needs and deserves to always be physically and mentally stimulated so as never to become neurotic and/or destructive due to boredom or lack of engagement. She already shows all the skills and abilities needed to excel at activities such as agility, rally, flyball, or any myriad of other pursuits.
More info and pictures for Phantom will be posted this week, so please come back and see what happens next with her!
