Duke has been with us for about six weeks and has settled in so well.  He was a bit excitable in the beginning and he slept in the living room, but has realized his bed is very comfy and next to the man in the bedroom, who he adores.  If he could sleep in bed with us I’m sure he would!! There was a fast and immediate bond!



He loves walks and as a young Golden he needs them and especially loves to go for runs in the woods.  Loves to play in the snow too!!  He learned commands fast and is very well behaved!!  Such an eager to please pup and a definite fit to our home.. He’s a Velcro but when we go to work he’s ok with it and spends the day with the other dogs just fine!! Such a mellow eager to please boy it’s hard to believe he was rescued from the back of the meat truck !!!

I am Newton (#2984), a fun-loving, exuberant 2-year-old  who loves life.  I may be a meat-trade survivor, but I positively refuse to dwell on the past.  I love people, both men and women, and get along extremely well with other dogs. I have not been around cats yet, but when I was introduced to chickens I showed only mild interest so cats would probably be okay with me.

I have allergies, common to Goldens, and am on an allergy medicine to quell my itchiness. I get VERY excited when I meet new people, but only because I am so happy to see them.  I am eager-to-learn and have been described as “delightful” and a “smart cookie.”  I am 99% house-broken in my foster home and am quickly learning basic commands.

I am eager to meet my forever person or family.  A loving home, active lifestyle and plenty of affection will make me the happiest pup in the world!  In return, I will do my best to make you happy, too.  Think we can negotiate a deal?
