BIO:
Hi Everyone!!! My name is Charlie. I'm a big fluffy and very handsome 12 year old Golden Retriever. I have had a very interesting life so far. I spent the first several years of my life as a Border Patrol dog!!! It's not easy being in law enforcement. I had to be very serious all the time and constantly be on watch. As a result, I'm not your typical goofy Golden. It takes me some time to get to know people, so you must be patient with me as I become familiar with you. In my line of work, I had to be on guard all the time, so since I have retired those old habits are tough to break. I met a lot of not so nice people along the way so it's in my nature to be a little standoffish at first. I'm happiest when I have a job. I love to chase the ball or chew on my Kong. Give me something to do and I'm on it! After I have had the opportunity to spend some time with you and get to know you, I warm up quite nicely and can be very cuddly. My foster has been working with me and showing me what it's like to take it easy and enjoy playing in the yard and going on long walks. I am an excellent communicator, so if you watch my cues, we will get along just fine! I do wear a vest when I am out and about so folks know I'm working and don't like a lot of attention. I'm looking for a forever home where I can spend my retirement, taking it easy in the peace and quiet. I'm not crazy about other dogs so I would need a home where I am an only dog. I do like cats though!!! I need a tall fence and no children in the home. I had so much excitement as a border patrol dog; I am looking to find a quiet home without a lot of commotion and visitors. I can be left alone for a little while if you need to go out for a bit. If visitors do come over, I can go into my own room and be quiet too! I'm so grateful to AGA for trying to find me the right home where I can finally be a Golden Retriever and enjoy my retirement years!!! Charlie
