About Sawyer

This is a cross post for GRRoW (Golden Retriever Rescue of Wisconsin)

Sawyer is a 2 year old looking for his perfect forever home! Sawyer is a very easy dog and doesn't have an aggressive bone in his body! He is terrified of moving cars so he would much prefer living in a quiet peaceful countryside setting! He will also require a physical fence, as he is still a high flight risk. 

 He is from a hoarding house originally, so he missed out on early critical socialization. What does this mean? Mainly that human touch and attention is utterly foreign and not relaxing for him.

He is a very easy & quiet boy to live with. He is house-trained, crate-trained and loves his leash walks/hikes through the woods. He had a very rough start to life and needs someone that is looking for a buddy but not a cuddle kind of dog. He is a careful dog and his world is slowly widening as he experiences new things. 

His ideal people:

  • Are patient and understand forcing affection on him will not convince him to “like petting.”
  • Live somewhere more rural - he loves, loves, loves long hikes on a long line but is phobic of cars. He will bolt and not look back. 
  • Will have at least one other dog - he is dog tolerant, gets along easily but is not interested in play, etc., except if it is snowing. He does prefer female dogs. 
  • Will be happy to provide him comfy areas around the house. As he grows more comfortable, he expands his comfort zone and will choose to be quietly nearby. 
  • Are open to the idea of providing a true “rescue” home that is more about meeting his needs than satisfying their own dreams about what a dog can fulfill for a human. 

Sawyer is: 

  • Quiet
  • Crate trained 
  • House Trained 
  • Walks well on leash (if there are no moving cars) 
  • Volunteers for his leash to be put on once comfortable 
  • Cat safe and enjoys hanging out with barn cats or when the cats join on walks.

Hi, my name is Moose! I am a one year old male golden looking for my perfect FURever home. I was surrendered to GRRACE when my original owner abandoned me after keeping me in a crate in his basement. I didn’t get a lot of social interaction in my first year of life but since coming to GRRACE, I have learned that I love people. Sometimes I love them so much that I get sad when they leave. My foster home calls this separation anxiety. I have been getting some help to overcome my fear of being alone and it’s helped a lot but in my forever home, I would prefer to have humans who are home often. I also don’t love to share my humans so I need to be the only pet in the home. Oh, I also LOVE food and am still learning to share. Until I get better at that, I will need a home with older children or adults only. I know I have some things to work on but I am really just a silly puppy looking to have fun. I love walks, doing zoomies in the yard, and lounging on the couch. I am potty trained, up to date on vaccines, not destructive, and I don’t bark very much. I know I have a few quirks to work though but with the right training, patience and encouragement, I know I will continue to improve. I didn’t have the best start to life but I promise I have a lot of love to give. Moose will make a wonderful addition to the right family. If you are an adult only home (or a home with children over the age of 13), are home often, have no other dogs or cats, have a structural fence and are willing to continue to love, encourage, and train Moose then please contact GRRACE to learn more!   show less
