Please welcome Shadow 14-132 to RAGOM. Shadow is a 14-week-old male, said to be a Golden Retriever/Husky mix. He started his life in Sumter, South Carolina. His family had 2 adults, 5 kids, and 3 or 4 cats. It was a bit more than Shadow could handle, so he was surrendered to RAGOM. Shadow has been to "Puppy Kindergarten" class. He seems to have a little start on "sit" and "no," and has some recall. He has not had any potty accidents in the house so far. Shadow is crate trained and will usually go in when you say "kennel up." I haven't given him free roam yet because he wants to play very rough with my cats and the other dogs. He lived with cats previously. I think he may be ok with a very dog-savvy cats.
Shadow is used to a tie-out, so no fence is required. It is always a good thing to have a fence, but I know it is not always allowed. Shadow does pull some on walks with a flat collar. I haven't tried a Gentle Leader on him yet. Shadow is able to walk 3 miles at a time with no problem. I wish I could say the same for me.
Shadow was kept up to date with vaccines by his previous owners and is due for some boosters. He is scheduled to get his RAGOM wellness exam and any boosters along with heartworm preventive and flea/tick preventive on Monday, 5/19.
Shadow has only been here a few days, so there is much more to learn about him. Overall, he seems like a very well-behaved puppy. He does take a little while to get used to new people.
