Adoption Fee: $600.00
I was surrendered to GRRACE by a commercial breeder so I haven’t been exposed to many things in my life so far. I’m a beautiful, petite golden girl. My coat is healthy and is light blonde with dark blonde highlights. I just celebrated my 5th birthday, and I weighed in at 45lbs. I’m very shy and timid. I’m especially afraid of men. I like to eat by myself…don’t watch me. I like treats, but won’t take them from your hand, you must put them down in my safe place and leave. I love fresh water but will not drink it while you are there. I watch everything all the time. My foster mom thinks it would be best if there weren’t children in my forever home because I like quiet and no fast moves and sometimes I don’t like my space invaded. FoMo also thinks it would be great for me to have a quiet, mature dog in my forever home or a human that is home most of the time. I haven’t learned to play with toys, but I do zoomies in the back yard and run up to FoMo and roll over on my back for a belly scratch. I will need a fenced yard because I haven’t learned to go potty on lead. I haven’t learned to signal when I need to go outside, but if taken out regularly I don’t have accidents. It would be best if the main person taking care of me is female. One of my safe places is between the pillows on fomo/fodad’s bed. I love to sleep with my humans and jump easily on the bed. My other safe place is a corner in the kitchen with my bed and water dish. I have a beautiful halter and lead that I’m learning to wear. I walk well on lead, but don’t want anyone behind me. When something scares me, I dart here and there and if it happens when on a walk, I sometimes try to hide between my human’s feet. I’m great in the car, but haven’t learned to jump in. I will put my feet in the river but will not go in any further. I like to be brushed, but don’t care for baths. FoMo loves to take her Sunday nap with me. She will lift me up on the sofa and we snuggle. It takes me a minute to relax, but when I do we have a nice snuggle. I will go into a crate, if necessary, but would prefer not to. The kitchen is my safe place to be if I’m alone in the house. My little heart has been hurt and it will take me time to heal and trust humans again. FoMo whispers in my ear that I’m a wonderful “lil bit” and soon the past will be forgotten.
