Hello! My name is Reilly (#3107). I am a five-year old female Golden. I arrived from China in mid-November. I was very tired when I first arrived here. I am now getting used to my new foster home, foster mom and foster sister. I love going for long walks and playing with my foster sister. I get alone with most of dogs I meet except I don’t like dogs barking at me. I bark back but my foster mom says that I should just ignore them. I am learning.
The things I cannot ignore are these little creatures called squirrels. Oh, boy, I go crazy. I want to chase and catch them, bark and squeal at them. My foster mom is teaching me to be calm. She makes me sit and be quite. It is so hard to be calm when they are around laughing at me! Oh, well...
At home I am very quiet. I sleep in my crate at night. I don’t counter surf or go through garbage or chew things.
Reilly’s foster mom: Reilly is a very gentle, sweet, affectionate dog. She could lose a few pounds but otherwise very healthy dog. She knows most of the basic commands and does well when there are no distractions like when she is in the house. She needs to be trained outside where there are more distractions. She would probably benefit from a basic obedience class. She also pulls her leash especially when there are squirrels around. I think she would do well in an active family who likes to do things outdoor with her and teach her.
Reilly was adopted on January 9, 2019
