Big fan of: People! Gold loves every person he meets. He's very smart, and would enjoy having you teach him some new tricks—especially when his favorite treats are involved!
Not a fan of: Gold doesn't feel comfortable around other dogs, so he'd prefer to be the only dog in his new home. He sometimes feels nervous when people are around his food and toys, but he is making great progress in this area. Our Behavior Team can give you additional tips for helping Gold learn to share.
Special features: With guidance and supervision in his new home, Gold will learn quickly to only use the bathroom outside.
Other reasons he's special: Gold underwent surgery to correct a condition called laryngeal paralysis, meaning that occasionally the larynx doesn't move appropriately which inhibits respiration. Gold is doing extremely well! There's a chance his condition could reoccur, so he should be kept in a cool environment during the warmer months and his exercise should be limited.
Dream home: Gold would do best with an experienced adopter in a home with children 12-and-up.
