We at YGRR are grateful to have been making excellent matches of wonderful dogs with loving homes for over 30 years and are excited to be exploring new ways to be of even better service.
In the interests of expediting our matching process, we have created this private page to allow you, our Approved Applicants, to view our dogs as they complete their health screenings and behavioral assessments and become available for adoption.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER GOLDEN RETRIEVERS: Due to the high transport costs associated with our International Golden rescue initiative, effective immediately there will be a $400.00 Transport Fee added to the normal Adoption Fee for an International Golden. This fee represents a small fraction of the expense YGRR incurs, but will hopefully help us to continue this program which has made so many dogs and adopters so very happy.
To learn more about a dog you see here, click on the dog’s picture and a brief description will appear. If a dog interests you, we would be happy to discuss in greater detail that dog’s likelihood of being a match for your goals and lifestyle. Dogs are made available for adoption after we assess their behavior and medical needs. Some dogs may be matched with applicants before being listed on this page.
You can reach a YGRR Adoption Counselor by e-mail at [email protected] or by phone at 978-568-9738.
We look forward to helping you find a great match and helping these lovely dogs find their forever family!
1 year old spayed female Golden Retriever (60 pounds)
Boy oh boy was this a trip! I have come a long way and still have some to go, but I hope this all ends up with me in a great home!
I am a very peculiar girl, but not in a bad way. I think I just haven’t experienced a lot of the things you American people do with your dogs!?
I would love to have a home as the only dog. I wouldn’t say I am completely against meeting other dogs, but I need more time and practice before I can feel completely comfortable. So living with one would probably be way too much. I would love to work on this in my new home and get better and better at it. I think my inexperience hinders me here.
I would love to get attention all day long. I’m not super into toys, although I am learning they can be fun. Can I tell you a secret?? I think my favorite thing to play with is YOU! That’s right! I love it when my human friends jog around, playbow to me, get me all excited and run around some more. It is the most fun game I’ve ever played! I get the zoomies and start running around and will playbow back at you and then dodge and juke you out of your shoes!
I do have some sensitivities. The first being strangers. If you let me take the time to get to know you then I am much more comfortable than if you rush me. The second sensitivity is my ears. When I arrived at Yankee from Turkey, I had a pretty bad ear infection on top of a wounded and bloody ear. So I can be a little head shy and really am not sure about people touching my ears until I am comfortable with you. Then the last sensitivity is my skin. I have sensitive skin so keeping a consistent diet is best and also taking my daily meds for any itching is helping a lot!
I’m hoping that you will find me cute and fun to play with even though it means you have to play back! It is a fun game, I promise!
5 year old spayed female Golden-At-Heart (110 pounds)
Yeah, yeah, I know I’m not a golden. No matter how hard I try, I just can’t seem to grow a fluffy coat. What I lack in fluff, I make up for in love and I can’t wait to have a family that loves me back. I was from a tough situation where I was yelled at a lot, wasn’t exercised enough, and was the mother of a couple litters. Sometimes I can be a little skeptical of meeting strangers, but it’s because I’m not sure what they’re going to do to me. Are they going to be nice? Are they going to yell? I’d like somebody that can support me and show me that people are okay. Once I get to know you, I’m a total love muffin. I could just hang out with you all day!
As you can see, I’m a little overweight…okay maybe a lot overweight, but that’s what happens when your people don’t take you for walks. I actually enjoy walks and the staff is able to bring me for longer walks each day. I’m probably not ready for a super long hike quite yet, but with your help, I bet I can get there some day. I will finally be able to enjoy what it truly means to be a dog!
If you already have another dog in your home, that’s fine with me. I’ve been pretty good with the dogs I’ve met so far, though I’m not much of a player. Maybe it’s because of my size, but I mostly just like to hang around with other dogs and maybe join them on a walk
Contact the adoption office so we can start working on our beach bodies together! I’ll be here hanging out and looking cute.
1 year old neutered male Golden mix (45 pounds)
I know you probably already read the bio on my brother, Dustin, and Dustin is pretty cool, but I AM the MVP. Who could overlook that!?
Now, I may be a bit nervous and I need some time to adjust. This has been a big trip for me and I think I took it the hardest of all my brothers…but in time, and with the right home, I will be a confident pup! I just don’t understand how things are done here yet, so if you teach me, I am willing to learn! Any MVP is adaptable and will end up being the greatest by the end!
I think what makes me the MVP, honestly, is my adorable head tilt. When I hear sounds I have never heard before, I think I can hear it better if I listen to it with my head sideways, so I tilt my head! Everyone laughs and they all think it is the cutest thing ever. It gave me that extra push to get the MVP title!
I really enjoy the company of other dogs and they help me come out of my shell a bit, but I do have some puppy warts right now, so I probably shouldn’t live with another dog or be around any until those are gone. They will just fall off after sometime, but I don’t want another dog to give me a kiss and get a wart! They are no fun to have. But I would love a home where I can meet other dogs and interact with them on a regular basis!
I am a smaller guy too, and I won’t get much bigger so I think I am the cutest little pocket -sized MVP ever!
6 year old spayed female Golden Retriever (75 pounds)
Have you seen the movie Finding Nemo? Did you know that Dory was the one that FOUND Nemo in the movie!? She saved the day! She made everyone happy! Well, my name is Dori, and although spelled differently than the little, blue fish, I will make YOU happy as well!
I have a lot in common to Dory the fish. I am a very dependent girl. I LOVE to have your attention and will whine if you stop petting me! What makes you think that stopping is acceptable!? I do bond very strongly once I trust you and understand that you are going to be good to me. I LOVE to play games and play with my toys. I have a few favorites and hope to get a few new ones in my new home! I also LOVE to go on adventures and go exploring! Just like Dory did in the movie! I love to go for walks and I will dance when I get excited!
You want to see me REALLY dance? Well just scratch my bum! I start dancing like no one’s watching! I also love car rides. I have lived as the only dog, but I don’t mind other dogs at all. I get a little nervous and giddy, like I’m excited to see them but not sure what to do! I think having some doggie friends in the neighborhood would be best for me. I also haven’t lived with young kids since I was a pup, so I am a bit out of practice, but older kids are fine!
I have had a rough few months and I’m not going to lie, I really would love to get into a home soon. So, just like Dory in the movie, I am confused about life right now and a bit stressed out. I am a bit of a generally anxious dog and I would love for a family to understand that I have been through a lot. But I do hope that you will consider a sweet girl like me to become a part of your family and home. It may take me a little bit to figure out what is going on, but I promise I will. Just like Dory, the fish, it has been a long journey and I hope that I have a happy ending by finding my forever home!
5 year old spayed female Golden Retriever (55 pounds)
The Wizard of Oz may have you thinking that poppies will put you to sleep, but I don’t think that could be possible with my human-like eyes looking up at you. I gotta say though, I do enjoy sleeping quite a bit myself. I’m a pretty mellow girl just looking for rubs and scratches. But you better stay awake so you can keep petting me! No mid-day naps for you, my friend!
For a stray from Turkey, I walk pretty nicely on a leash. However, I don’t know too many things yet. Do have treats at home? I’m a quick learner! I’m still trying to figure out toys too. Do I chase it? Do I pick it up? What in the heck is making that squeak noise? So confusing! You can teach me how those things work!
I unfortunately had something happen to my hip in Turkey and because I don’t speak English or any human language, I can’t ever tell you about it, but Yankee is going to make sure it gets taken care of. I had a surgery before while I was in Turkey but it didn’t help, but I hear the vets here in America are pretty awesome! I would love to recover from my surgery in my new home rather than here at the rescue. You can hold me and sing me to sleep at night and I think that will help me heal faster!! Don’t you think?
I’m not looking for anything fancy in my new home. Like I said, I’m a pretty go-with-the-flow kind of girl so your home would be perfect for me. Want to take a nap? Sounds great! Want to go for a walk? Sounds good too! Whatever you feel like doing, I’d be happy to do the same.
3 year old neutered male Golden Retriever (50 pounds)
Sweet as sweet potato pie! I’ve never had sweet potato pie. I’m not even sure if it’s a thing…but I would eat it! I guess it’s just a cool sounding metaphor for just how sweet I AM!
I am a silly boy that came all the way from China and boy am I happy to be here! You all give so much love and attention and it is SO fun to go out for walks and hang out together! I want to do this FOREVER! Maybe I can do this forever with you!
I have some hip problems that I will get getting surgery for because I am too young to have hip problems and not do anything about it! Jeez! I have lots of running left to do so I needs some good hips! Right now they are pretty wobbly and I look like a goof ball when I walk, but it just adds character! I do want to find my new home so I can get used to my new life a bit before having my surgery, and it would also be so much better for me to recover at home from my surgery on a big comfy bed watching the birds out your window. We can bird watch together while you sit with your coffee in the morning! I think recovering at home is just the way to go for this guy!
I love other dogs, but I can’t have a full-on play session with them at the moment and I won’t be able to play until after my recovery. So I could be put into a home where there are no other dogs, or another dog that will not try to play too hard with me. If you have another young dog that wants to play, it’s not out of the question, but you will have to be GOOD humans! You can’t let us REALLY play until after I have recovered! Too soon could mean another surgery and I do NOT want that. I am a gentle guy with other dogs though, so playing gently is right up my alley.
I love attention and I am good smiler. I learned to smile for the camera and then I usually get treats! Woohoo!! I also love the ball! What sill boy doesn’t!?
1 year old neutered male Golden Retriever Mix (55 pounds)
Introducing. The one. The only. Mooookieeee Bettttts!!!! If you don’t know who that is, then you don’t live in New England. I am happy about having such a great name, and I am trying my best to live up to it!
I am a pretty shy guy as the big trip from China really threw me for a curve ball (see what I did there?) But I am slowly learning how to live in this world. I feel like I just got moved up to the big leagues and I’m a bit lost, but with some training, some patience and some help from a good family, I will find my way to a HOME RUN! I will find my way to my FOREVER HOME!
I am much more comfy with another dog to follow around. Things like doorways and stairs are freaky to me and another dog helps that feel better. I also do better after getting some time to get used to you and used to my surroundings. I am pretty comfy with staff now, but when they take me to a new room or part of the building it is like I’m a catcher on a pitcher’s mound…lost. So a fenced-in yard would be best so I can get used to that first before going out and away from home.
So, what do you say. I’m at the plate. Ready for the first pitch to be thrown and I hope that it will be a HOMER for me!
1 year old spayed female Golden Retriever Mix (40 pounds)
Why hello there! I’m sure you’ve already virtually met a couple of my siblings! Well I am the cutest of them all and boy of boy do I love to learn new things! I think I might be the runt (no one ever broke the news to me) but I am the jumbo of the personality!
I enjoy walks and I enjoy your attention. It takes me a minute to warm up to new places and people, but I warm up pretty quickly, but like you do when you sip your hot coffee in the morning….after a little while all your insides feel fuzzy and cozy and warm!
I really enjoy other dogs but I currently have some warts in my mouth that are contagious to other dogs, so I should go home as an only dog for now…but once those are gone then please introduce me to some doggie friends! Woohoo they are fun!
I am peanut-sized too! I can fit right in your pocket (well, not really) but close enough! I am enjoying toys and I am learning new things, but it is all a work in progress for a new home to continue!
2 year old male Golden Retriever (70 pounds)
I am applying for a forever family. I have attached my resume and cover letter for your consideration. If you need references I can provide some, but most of them speak ‘dog’ so I’m not sure how helpful that will be in your search. I do have quite a few human references as well though! My resume is as follows:
I am a proven, handsome, stud of a guy. I have an amazing blonde coat and dark brown eyes that even a blind person could get lost in! I also have nice pearly whites that I enjoy showing off while I smile.
I am currently earning my Bachelor’s degree in leash walking with a specialization in using a harness. My double-major includes being great at going on adventures to new locations, including but not limited to state parks, rail trails, beaches, and outdoor ice cream parlors. My second major is riding in the car for long or short trips. I am also currently taking a course on how to play with different dogs. I have successfully passed multiple tests on this subject including tests with a young dog, tests with an older dog and a test with a small dog. All completed with honors.
My biggest strengths are my smile and my ability to have a good time everywhere I go. My biggest weaknesses are that I leak urine and will have to undergo a small surgery soon to hopefully help with that, as well as I am working on learning to play fetch and actually bringing the ball BACK to the human.
I have special interests in humans, dogs, cows, tug-of-war, soft-serve vanilla ice cream, and going on any adventures, anywhere, anytime. I would love to continue to work toward my goals of learning to not be so handsome in public because everyone wants to touch me, as well as not being so jumpy when I am excited!
My honors include being the spokes-dog and model for Wilderdog Co. earlier this year. I was also an ambassador of sorts for the 2019 Boston Marathon Start Line.
I know that I am qualified to be a great family member and I hope that you consider my resume despite the fact I have a leaking problem that I am doing my best to make better with the vets and the staff at Yankee. I sure hope that my resume gets me a full-time position as your companion, your family member and your best friend!
1 year old neutered male Golden Retriever mix (55 pounds)
Phew! I think I’m finally ready to put myself out there. I’m a bit of a shy guy at first, but I warm up if you just give me a chance. I was one of the nine “Red Sox puppies” from China, but I was lucky enough to find myself a foster home when I arrived in America. Everything was so new to me when I got off the plane, I just didn’t know how react. To be honest, it was all a bit scary. My foster parents have been making great strides with me though!
I share my foster home with a golden retriever “bother” and we enjoy wrestling and chasing each other, so a doggy sibling in my new forever home would be great! In fact, they would probably continue to help me come out of my shell. They can show the ropes of being a real American dog, ya know?
My foster mom describes me as a playful young boy, much a like a puppy in many ways. I didn’t really have the opportunity to go through the fun part of puppyhood in China, so I’m making up for it here. So yeah, I’m a little mouthy and I may try steal a tissue when you’re not looking, but that just means I’m being normal youngster! I’m a smart boy so we can go to training classes and continue working on my good boy manners.
I have to say I am pretty proud of myself! I am getting used to riding in a car, I have been to the beach where the waves are SO loud, and I have even been walking with my new harness on! I love it!
I love my foster home but I am ready for my FOREVER home!
1 year old neutered male Golden Retriever mix (55 pounds)
Hi I’m Sam. Sam I am! That’s me! I am the handsome guy roaming the kennels at Yankee and I’m ready to roam the rooms in my new home instead!
Some say I look like a coyote a little bit, but believe it or not, my mom is a Golden and I was born in China with all my siblings! I guess my dad must’ve looked like a coyote! But I don’t act much like a coyote, I am learning to act like a golden! I had never seen a tennis ball before, but I am learning that those things are FUNNNN, fun, fun! Do I pick it up with my paws? I’m not sure!
I enjoy going for walks and I enjoy smelling all the smells there are here! It is so fun! I am much more comfy now with everything, but I would expect to go through an adjustment period when I go to my new home. That’s okay though, it will go by quick! Especially if you have time to spend with me so I can get used to you and all the fun things in the house that you will buy for me! Toys, and balls, and treats! Woohoo!!
Email about me already, it’s time for some summer fun with Sam! And Sam I am!
3 year old spayed female golden retriever (55 pounds)
I’m the Little Mermaid of the golden world – gorgeous red hair and a curiosity for thingamabobs. Maybe they should cast me as Ariel in the new remake! “Look at this stuff. Isn’t it neat?
Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?” Well not quite…I still need the most important thing – a family! I’m a bit of a ditzy young girl so get ready for some laughs.
Not long ago, I arrived here all the way from China. No, I didn’t swim across the sea, but I took one heck of a plane ride…long and borrrringggg. Thank goodness I don’t need to go back. I can’t wait to start my new life here in America, just like Ariel left the sea to be free and find love. Love is what I need most! There wasn’t a whole lot of that where I’m from unfortunately. I’m hoping my new family will shower me with love and show me how to a more confident princess. Yeah, I’m interested in thingamabobs like tennis balls and squeaky toys, but I’m not gunna lie, sometimes new situations make me a little nervous. All the volunteers adore me though so I’m happy to be by their side! If you’re looking for a new companion to be by YOUR side, count me in! “ I want to be where the people are” after all.
Quick, before Disney calls me for my Ariel role, contact the adoption office!
1 year old neutered male golden retriever mix (60 pounds)
Oh, do I really have to talk about myself? I…I don’t know what to say. I’m a humble boy with bit of a shy side when meeting new people. But, people keep telling me I have the cutest teddy bear face. Do you think I’m cute?
Well, I guess I’ll start off by telling you that I’m from China. Maybe that’s why I’m a little shy at first…life in China can be a bit chaotic for a dog like me. You know what though? I think I’m starting to realize that I don’t have to be as reserved. Volunteers offer me treats each time show some confidence! Everything is just so new so I need a little time to warm up. Even toys were new to me. I think I’ve got the chasing part down, it’s the picking up part that I’m still working on.
I don’t want to sound picky by any means when I talk about my new home, but I think I would do best in a generally calm household that’s willing to be patient with me. Maybe even a mellow doggie buddy could help me out? So far I haven’t been much of a player, but I seem to enjoy the company of the gentle dogs I’ve met here.
Okay…um, I think you’re supposed to contact the adoption office now. I hope you’ll pick me!
3 year old female Golden Retriever (50 pounds)
Do you know what I find liberating? Toys. They make me come out of my shell and open up! I may not actually know how to PLAY with the toy…but they get me all excited and I run around and have the zoomies and enjoy a little time not being nervous!
Generally speaking, I’m pretty nervous and I like to walk around in sort of this crouch position just in case, but with more time and patience and practice, I will learn that is not necessary. It is just one of those things that I have always done back in China so I find comfort in doing it. It’s my crutch. Some day I hope to not use that crutch anymore!
A quieter home with not a ton of commotion would be good for me because I’m not sure how I would adjust to living in a busy place. It is super busy here all the time and I am dealing with it but it’s not my first choice.
I would like to have a home where they can slowly teach me things and not rush me into everything all at once. I hear that summer BBQ’s are a whole lot of fun, but I don’t want to go to anything like that yet. If you only knew my past, you probably wouldn’t be ready to go to something like that either. I want to please you though and I work hard everyday to lay my worries aside and work toward becoming more confident, so if you want to help me in that journey then let’s find my Liberty together!
3 year old female Golden Retriever/Lab (70 pounds)
Where’s my toy? Gotta find my toy! Oh! There it is! Okay now that I have my toy I can say hi to you. I have to make sure to ALWAYS greet with a toy because it makes me get even more attention than what I get! I like to do lots of things with toys. Play with toys. Sleep with toys. Carry toys around the room. Carry toys around the yard. Even smile with a toy in my mouth! I’m talented!
Wanna talk about chill and laid back though? That is me to a T! My middle name should be Stephanie Carefree ______. I don’t have a last name yet because I don’t have a family of my own yet. I wouldn’t mind a family or just a couple looking for their first dog! I also wouldn’t mind being the only dog or living with another dog. Not much of a player though, but I’m good at hanging out! Just chillin!
I think I’m a pretty easy gal to get along with and I hope you think so too! This is a pretty amazing place here, America and Yankee, so I am beyond excited to live here…even though you can’t really tell I’m super excited!
2 year old male Golden Retriever mix (60 pounds)
Have you ever seen a magical creature such as myself? The black-coated Golden Retriever-looking, dazzling and stunning, impressive and ravishing dog? Well, now you officially have seen one because you have looked at my picture!
I here am known as Onyx and I am from the great land of China. I made the trip over the pond to be here with all of you! I am still getting used to everything there is to see and hear and smell over here, but I am on my way to being an American citizen! I just need one more thing…a family to call my own!
I am an independent soul and I enjoy exploring my surroundings. Getting a lay of the land, so they say. I have a bubbly personality but I still enjoy my independence. I have never had the option of relying on anyone else for anything, so it has taught me to always rely on myself. Don’t blame me for being a smart guy!
I’m not super sure what toys are, so I am cautious around those things. Some of them even have faces on them! That is just creepy, but I think I can get used to them with time. Same with new people…I like to give myself a second to get to know you before we move to second base, ya know? I still act like a puppy, so even though I’m 2…you should think of me more like a 4 month old. I never had a good puppyhood, so I figure, I might as well relive it now! In other words, I would really love to go learn some cool stuff at training so I can become more mature!
I enjoy the company of other dogs and like to go on walks with them. I am a bouncy guy outside, I walk with swagger to make sure everyone notices. You’ll see when you come to meet me!
2 year old male Golden Retriever (50 pounds)
Why hello there. I see you are looking at my photo and reading about me! That’s great because I want to tell you all about me!!!
My name is Tanner and I am from China! I have come a long way since arriving here but there is always progress to be made! I am a young and energetic guy that really enjoys playing fetch! I am even learning the art of dropping the ball when I bring it back to you so you can throw it for me again! Isn’t that great!?
I still act a bit like a puppy because I just am so excited to see you and meet you! So continuing working on things with me would be great! And I am a very fast learner! I also love to carry toys around with me. Even out on walks! So it is a great thing that I have lots of toys here and I hope to have lots in my new home too!
I am unexperienced with other dogs, but I am learning! I think I would probably like to live as the only dog, but I enjoy going on walks with other dogs that aren’t too overwhelming! I need a little time to warm up to them before I feel comfortable walking to closely to them. I am nervous that something bad might happen if I rush into it! Nothing good ever comes out of rushing into relationships…you humans should know that by now!
I am so pumped for my forever home to come and meet me and I will be sure to show you all my toys!
1 year old male Golden Retriever mix (30 pounds)
I am 100% aware that I may be the cutest living creature on the planet. So let’s not waste time talking about that. That’s obvious. I also know that most people start talking to me like a baby when they see me. You know…I can hear you right? And you sound ridiculous! But at the same time, my tail starts wagging when you do that and I can’t control it!
Boone’s the name and being adorable is my game! I love to go out on walks and get lots of exercise for these little legs of mine! You’d be surprised!
I enjoy meeting new people but I may take a second to get my sniffs in! I’m from China, and I have no clue who you are! So just give me a second here!
I enjoy toys but they get boring after a while. Your attention is pretty awesome though and I don’t get bored with that!
I am gaining more dog to dog experience and I am becoming quite a polite gentleman. If they want to play, that if fine, but if not that is fine too. I will say, my excitement gets the best of me sometimes and I just have a spazzy moment and love to just run and jump on the other dog to play! Like my brain short circuits and I forget that MAYBE the other dog just wants to go n a peaceful walk and not play with me? Who knows. Doesn’t matter. What matters is I’m adorable, I have the coolest name, and boy do I steal hearts!
3 year old Golden Retriever Mix (50 pounds)
Chocolate. Cocoa. Mocha. I’m right up there with some of the SWEETEST things on Earth! Now that says a lot about me because of how true it is!
People are my favorite thing. Toys are alright. Dogs are alright. But PEOPLE! People are the best. Especially people with HANDS! No…TWO hands! I wonder if there is anyone out there with three hands? If that’s you…then come pick me up right this instant!
I enjoy getting attention as much as I enjoy giving attention. I do need to get my bearings about me if I am in a new place and around new people, but that happens pretty quickly!
I love to go for walks and I love to cuddle and hang out with people. I do like to eat on my own though. That is one place where I don’t need your attention. You don’t like to be interrupted while eating either…same here!
I have a nice, thick, brown coat that is growing in nicely because when I came it was not so great. I am from a not-so-great situation in China, so at one point, I actually had NO hair! Can you believe that!? This poor girl was left with no hair. But I am on the up and up and ready for YOU to come and get me now!
3 year old female Golden Retriever (65 pounds)
Hi, my name’s Willow and I’m a fetch-aholic. I joined this group so that maybe someone would adopt me that loves to play fetch as much as I do! I don’t mean YOU going to fetch the ball…but I need a partner to throw it for me!
In my partner I am looking for someone who has a good arm, or maybe has the funds to go and buy a chuck-it stick. Either will work for me. I would love to have a big yard so we can play anytime we want to play fetch. Day, night, sunny, raining, summertime, blizzarding out. You say when and I’ll be there!
I am still new to meeting other dogs so I do my best to ignore the fact that there is even another dog in my sight. So I think I would rather be the only dog living in my home since I wouldn’t be much of a playmate anyway. I also don’t know how much I would like to share my ball with another dog…and my ball comes first! Any fetch-aholic knows that!
I would love a home too that can give me lots of attention, since if there isn’t a ball around, attention would be my next choice. I do thank you for you time today and I hope to meet you soon so we can work on our fetching skills together. Maybe you will become the next greatest MLB pitcher because of me! Anything is possible!
3 year old female Golden Retriever (50 pounds)
Does anybody know of a good place where a dog could go to live? A home? A GOOD home that has some patience and is kind-hearted and wants a cute little girl like me?
I came from China and I had a lot to learn when I arrived here, but I am starting to get the hang of things! I just am still a bit nervous! I need a home that understands that I want to take things slowly so I can feel more comfy! Like I am getting here!
Once I know you, and trust you, then we can become best buddies! I really like it when I trust someone. It feels so good! I also seem to like the company of other dogs, but I am still learning how to play without getting too excited. So any doggie sibling of mine would need to be well socialized and somewhat tolerant of other dogs that are still learning what to do!
I do get excited about toys! The ball specifically! I guess that’s the retriever in me shining through! I still get a little nervous of the ball when it bounces too high but that is okay! I will get it! My perfect home is hopefully reading this right now and will email to inquire when they are done!
