Hello there, my name is Rascal (#2801). I will explain later why I am a rascal, but for now know that I am ten years old, and very healthy and active and get along with people and most dogs as long as I am well introduced and they are not in my face. When meeting other dogs I am curious, tail wagging and the typical Golden Retriever. You would never guess me to be 10 as I don’t look or act it. I do love my walks and being out and about. I love to carry people’s fuzzy slippers around the house but never chew them up so perhaps fuzzy toys would be best.
I do tend to be very possessive of my food and toys. To keep me calm and settled, I would probably be best in a home with no other dogs as I don’t want them getting into my food or toys. People also should be aware not to bother me when I am eating. I love to chase cats so not the best idea to have cats around either. So you can see I am a special boy who has some special requirements.
My other special requirement and why rascal fits me is that I can be a rascal around children. They make me nervous with their activity and noise. Children don’t understand the signals I try to give them to please leave me alone so it is best that I am not around children at all as I might react in a way I should not. I have tried to let unknown children know this but when they don’t pick up on it then I growl and can snap as well.
I am a very loving boy who loves to be near you for all the attention you can give me so I have a very typical Golden personality of loving people and attention. I would be a good pal for a person who loves jogging and hiking as I do enjoy being active. I can also be by myself in the house so even someone who works should not be a problem. Even a single person who is fairly athletic who comes home from work can love on me and then we can go out for our exercise.
I hope you are the person for me as I would love to be in a home as described above. Love, Rascal
