Available Dogs arrow CHARLIE (19-021)

Charlie19 021 1 1 CHARLIE (19-021) is a beautiful and healthy Golden boy who has a sweet temperament with his family. At 64 lbs, he’s almost 2 years old and is very active. He loves to play with his people and enjoys squeaking toys and chewing bones in his free time. Charlie likes being petted, brushed and sharing space on the couch. His former owner relayed that he loves to swim; a Golden Aquaman! While he has mostly, but not always, been okay with children & other dogs that he has met while on walks, he would do best as a solo dog in the home as he likes all the attention for himself. Older children (14 & up) are preferred given his exuberance. Cats are unknown. He is fully house-trained and has been left with no accidents with free roam of the house for 6-8 hours at a time during the week. Charlie likes to chase balls but doesn’t always bring them back, so this will require a little work. He learned “shake” in 4 days, so he is smart and learns quickly. He knew “sit” and his name from the start. He takes treats nicely but eats super-fast; a tennis ball in his food dish has helped to slow him down. He has a lot to say and managing barking with passers-by will require consistent correction. Training on recall and commands is recommended. While he walks well on a leash, he occasionally barks and lunges for passing cars. He would do best with a fenced yard where he can have safe, off-leash, energetic fun. He’s good in the car, but not so hot at the vet. This handsome Golden is going to make someone a loyal and loving best friend!
