Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Golden Retriever (medium coat)
Weight: 56 lbs
Height: 24 in
Estimated Birthdate: 2/20/2021
Fence Needed: Yes, Amber has always had a fenced in yard. A fence is vital to her journey in learning to be your pet!
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: breeder release
Special Needs: Amber is up to date on vaccines and spayed. Amber will not be adopted to a home as an only dog. She must have another companion animal, there will be no exceptions.
What kind of home would be best for me: Amber is looking for a kind and patient home that wants to give Amber a safe and secure home. Amber must go to a home with another confident dog. If your dog is constantly checking in and guiding other dogs, then your family is just right for Amber! Amber has been cat tested and passed with flying colors, Amber is also great with small dogs. Amber has now learned to walk on leash, sometimes a loud sound or quick movement will startle Amber on walks. Amber does best on a leash when there is another dog being walked with her. Amber has not started crate training, foster home is taking baby steps with Amber. Amber has began house training but it is very much an ongoing skill that needs to be taught. Amber is going to need lots of ongoing training in her next home, she is truly looking for a family that enjoys putting in the extra work to shape Amber into the happy and rambunctious golden retriever she is meant to be!
What is my personality like: Amber right now is shy and unsure of her new world. A lot of things just changed for Amber all at once. Amber is learning a lot of things right now - she's learning about new people, leashes, couches, grass, but most importantly she's learning there is so much more to life than making puppies. Retired breeding dogs are always very unsure of this new world at first but time and time again, they have proved they are one of the most resilient dogs.
Amber is going to blossom into such an amazing dog. She's already interested in snuggling into humans and she enjoys lounging on the couch. Amber has the potential to be any dog you want. Everything she is taught in the next 3 months is going to vital to her personality. Amber will need her first few weeks in a home to be slowed and paced, she won't need to go everywhere and anywhere at first. Amber will need to decompress in her new home, please give her time. Amber is a project dog at first but the work is truly going to pay off.
We recently learned that Amber feels all the toys in her household are hers. To overcome this issue, Amber should be separated from her new pack when toys are out and about. Amber has started to understand she can share with her current pack of dogs. As she adjusts to her new household she needs the separation to help keep these guarding behaviors under control. With correction Amber does listen and back off. Amber is not for inexperienced dog owners, you must be ready to take on a dog who is a bit challenging.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Amber is still very unsure of everything, please don't expect her to come bounding up to you happy and excited. She is going to take time to trust fully, she simply just did not meet many humans before coming to rescue. It is so vital that Amber has another dog in a home to show her the ropes.
Tips and Tidbits: Amber's birthday is 2/20/2021
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
