Foster Update 8/2/2017:
A true mellow fellow who is very slender and very sweet.  Everything goes into his mouth but he doesn’t chew just carries whatever it may be around.  He likes cats and absolutely loves to play.  He will make a great family member for anyone who adopts him.  He visits a local nursing home with his foster mom and does very well.   I think his perfect family would be a youngish family that is active. He loves long walks and having a doggy playmate. Initially I thought he would want to be an only dog (he has some dominance issues, like standing over dogs). However, he isn’t aggressive about it. He plays constantly with Gus.  Last week I got him a puppy from our shelter (2 day foster, she was too young to be there, about 6 weeks old). He was such a good dog with her! Yes, he did put her in his mouth and I had to make him put her down. Which he gently did. At night he let her sleep on his bed so she would be comforted. He was never more that 10 feet away from the baby and if she let out a peep, he was there, licking and nosing her.  He is truly a fabulous boy.

Intake Report 5/5/2017:
Comet is a beautiful, exuberant young dog looking for his forever home. He plays for hours with his foster brothers, then rests quietly building up his battery for the next round. He came in with very few manners, but has been fairly easy to train because he is so food motivated and really wants to please. He is the definition of a velcro golden and greets everyone like they are his new best friend. Still need to work on a calm greeting, but he doesn’t jump up.  Comet loves to go for long walks and does well on a leash. However, he does show too much interest in vehicles and will bark or chase cars. A quick correction is needed and we are still working on this. He didn’t ride well in a car, but now will get in the back seat. He won’t load up into the bed of a truck or back of SUV, but can be pulled in using his harness.

He loves other dogs but will try to be dominant. Still, he needs a playmate to run around and learn to trust humans. He is probably too rough for most cats, because he wants to play with them. Everything and everyone will go into his mouth at the beginning. It is just how he greets everyone, but he does not bite down. He has a very soft mouth and loves carrying toys. We are working on returning the ball, but he loves chasing them.
