Meet Sounder 14-062, a 2-year-old Golden mix who has joined the RAGOM family. Sounder, a South Dakota boy, was turned into the animal shelter with some severe injuries and medical problems, but he’s on the mend and receiving great care, thanks to generous RAGOM donors. He still needs more veterinary attention, but is feeling better every day. (He would love for someone to help him out with his medical bills.)
In his time with us, Sounder has lived up to his nicknames.
Sweet Little Sounder: Sounder is a very sweet dog that loves attention, belly rubs, and loving pets. He has done very well meeting strangers and small children. He likes to put his head in your lap or cuddle up next to you—sitting or standing. He doesn’t care if he knows you or not; you are his best friend when you are giving him affection. When you stop, he will nudge you for more, or move to the next person in the room to give him love.
Smart Little Sounder: Sounder is a very quick learner and has mastered sit and stay (especially when food or a treat is involved). We’re still working on shake and lay down. He gets very excited and “jumpy” at times, but calms down when given direction to settle. On walks, he matches the pace of our older resident dog, and will stand patiently and wait for her to do her business.
Speedy Little Sounder: Every day, Sounder feels a little bit better and exhibits his playful puppy side. He loves to run around the yard at full speed, wearing himself out in about 10-15 minutes. He’s VERY quick and has shown a tendency to want to chase birds, bunnies, and squirrels while on a walk. He will always need to be leashed when outside a fenced-in area.
Sounder the Stealer: Sounder loves socks, shoes, and slippers. He doesn’t destroy them. He just collects them. He easily gives them up once given a toy or a Nylabone to chew on instead. Did we mention he loves toys? He loves a variety of things to play with, but does not destroy or de-stuff anything.
Sounder is not ready for adoption just yet, but when he has regained his health, he will make some family or active individual a very good dog.
