"Good boy, Red." -Anonymous friend
|In addition to LOVE this dog has the following requirements:
|This is the most recent information available; however, it may change as we learn more about the dog.
I would like to introduce you all to Red 16-215. Red is a PB Golden Retriever. He estimated to be 2-3 years old. Red was neutered on 9-2-16 and is recovering nicely. He was brought up to date on all his vaccinations, tested for heart worm. Results negative and given heart worm preventative. Red did test positive for hookworms and is being treated. He has had his first round of medicine for this and will need the dose repeated in 2 weeks , and then again a month after that. After completion he will need to have a fecal test to ensure the hookworms are gone. Red is also being treated for yeast in both ears. Otherwise Red is a healthy and very loving guy.
Red gets along with other dogs, big and small. Red has seen cats while on a leash and was not interested in them but has never lived with one. I do not have young kids in my home so it is unknown how he is with kids. He does jump up when excited but I have not seen any aggression at all towards people or other dogs. Red does not resource guard his food. He will let you take a toy/bone from his mouth. He is protective of his toys/bones if another dog tries to take them from him. He bonds quickly with his humans. He enjoys being close to you but will also be content sleeping on the floor, couch or his favorite place your bed. We have been crating Red when we are gone and through the night due to him living outside prior to coming into RAGOM. He keeps his crate clean. Red did mark our table on the very first night he arrived. Otherwise he has done all his business outside. Red has been whining for a short time when crated at night. We think it is because he would rather be in bed with us, but he quiets down after a few minutes and sleeps the rest of the night with no problems. Whoever adopts Red will be VERY lucky. He is pretty mellow for his age. He likes to play for a short time with our resident dogs but then will come over for pets or to sleep on the couch. He would enjoy the company of another dog but it is not required. He likes to explore in the back yard and has his nose to the ground a lot of the time so a fence would be preferred but not required as long as you kept him on a tie out. He is just a happy easy going boy. His whole backend will wiggle when he sees you. He deserves a happy loving home where he will be spoiled rotten. :) Does that home sound like yours? If so please let your placement advisor know!
