Intake Report 3/22/2017:
This handsome Golden Eyed boy found himself surrendered to a rural Tennessee Humane Society because his family was moving into an apartment and couldn’t take him. We were contacted by a rescuer who monitors that shelter and asked if we could help him out. When I went back to meet him, he just stood there and looked at me, like he was saying “Its about time you got here”. There were very loud, barking and aggressive acting dogs on each side of him in the kennel area, but he simply stood there looking at me. He was non-reactive to the dogs and also didn’t pay any attention to the three cats in the lobby of the shelter as we walked out the door to freedom. He doesn’t have great leash skills and pulled some on the leash but I think I would have pulled too if it meant getting out the door of that shelter. He loaded right into the crate in my van and rode relatively well on our journey to pick up two more passengers. He barked several times and whined a bit at the beginning, but after getting on the highway, he settled down, and just sat in his crate looking at me. He greeted each of our new passengers with a healthy interest and enthusiasm, but once we were on the road back to Memphis with our third and final passenger, he laid down and slept the whole way to Memphis. His coat is thick, healthy and very soft. He’s got the most beautiful Gold eyes, and has coloring similar to a Duck Toller/Golden Mix. He’s super sweet, welcomes petting and attention, and greeted several people and dogs at our clinic He is going to be a fabulous addition to some lucky family.
