"Wishing you love and belly rubs as you start the golden life through RAGOM!"
|A portion of Tasha's medical care was paid for by a generous grant from the Golden Retriever Foundation's April Fund|
|This dog came into RAGOM from a commercial breeder and has not been adequately socialized to humans. RAGOM requires that any adoptive homes contain a physical fence (due to the risk of escape); another fairly confident medium to large sized dog to role model from (everything is new and scary for them); no children under 10 years old in the home (normal kid behavior scares these dogs). Our goal is to find the forever family for these dogs and our experience leads us to use these criteria.|

Tasha is one of 29 Golden Retrievers that was rescued from a breeder. Tasha will be 1 year old this month, but she is not your typical Golden puppy. She is VERY scared of us humans right now. She spends the majority of her day in her kennel since that is her safe spot. She instantly connected with the resident dogs and they are showing her that once she feels safe that us humans aren't so bad :) She even started play bowing with the resident dogs outside!
We got Tasha from her Temporary foster home last Tuesday night. She would not make eye contact and would just lay in the corner of her kennel. We carried her outside and back in. The other dogs have started to show her that the inside world is great. In fact on day 3 she came into the house on her own! Very slowly, but she did! :) We are taking baby steps with her. She will eat her food from our hands and LOVES treats (FM better go and buy A LOT!) ;) The main thing is we are taking it one day at a time. She will come to us when she feels comfortable, we will just continue to show her what the Golden Life is and love her. Just going to take lots of baby steps!
Tasha is not ready for her forever home. It is going to take some time for her to overcome her fears and learn to be a dog. Keep watching for her updates and the updates of all the others that were saved, and consider making a donation to help them out :)
