Reno 16-240 arrived at our home a few weeks ago, and boy, is he a love. He's a two-year old purebred Golden Retriever who comes from a breeding background. Due to this, he'll need to go to a very special home. Besides having a physical fence, a confident resident dog, and no children under ten years old, he needs a family who will be patient with him while he overcomes his fears. Some of those fears may never completely fade, but with time and love, he'll learn to be a happy Golden boy. He's already well on his way.
The vet said he's malnourished, but some high quality food should fix that. He needs to gain about ten pounds, again, decent diet will help. Reno boy has entropion in both eyes, which will be fixed via surgery in a couple of weeks.
This hound is about as sweet as they come and wants so badly to trust. He will approach us to be petted, but as soon as you (ever so slowly) reach to pet him, he drops to the floor, tail tucked tight. Most everything frightens him, but he has discovered that stuffed toys are awfully nice to snuggle with. And, he loves resident Golden girl Rori.
Reno has never had an accident in the house, but he does get extremely car sick, so that's something to take into consideration if your family travels a lot.
Enjoy the pictures of this beautiful guy. Stay tuned for further updates.
