BIO:
They say I have to learn to be a golden retriever and that people can be my friends and love me a lot if I give them a chance. I am only a little over one year old but all of my life has been spent with other dogs. I never knew there was any other kind of life but my breeder owner knew and made sure I came to AGA to get started learning to be the dog I was meant to be! Even simple things like a collar and a leash frightened me because I didn't know you were supposed to walk when your person put them on you. I only knew to lie down and so people had to pick me up and carry me. When people came near me I would run away and try to hide. But, I've only ever lived in a kennel with other dogs and I love playing with them and sharing my food and sleeping next to them. Other dogs don't scare me the way people do. I also had another problem when I first came to AGA and that was some very itchy skin and my coat wasn't pretty. But everyone says I am a handsome boy who likes to be petted and loved. Right now my foster is learning about me and I am having a good time playing with her dog, so what I need is a kind, patient family in a quiet home with a fence around the yard which keeps me safe. I especially need another brother or sister dog (or dogs) to play with and maybe no little kids who haven't yet learned to be gentle with dogs who aren't used to kids. If my picture shows my sad face that's how I feel inside. I am going to try so hard to have a new happy face and hope you will know how much I need you even if I don't quite understand that yet.
