Hi my name is Ringo (#3110). I am a already a pretty big guy, around 75 pounds, but will most likely be about 85 pounds when I grow up. I am a deep red Golden color. I moved in with my foster family a couple of weeks ago. I had a little sore in my tail from being in a crate for quite a time. I accidentally hit my funny little tail on things when I am excited. I will have a beautiful golden tail when all the hair grows back.
My foster siblings are nice to me. We have sniffed a lot; we all really enjoy sniffing. I love sleeping next to my foster mom. She calls me a big lug. (What’s a lug?) I met the cats and they don’t excite me too much but foster mom says she wouldn’t turn me loose with them yet. I think maybe I haven’t been raised with cats so need time to adjust.
I love people and their hands rubbing behind my ears. I could sit next to them for that all day. I put my paw on my foster mom when we are asleep. I have a nice off-the-floor dog bed with a soft blanket. I’m quiet all night. When I first arrived from China, my nights and days were turned around so I asked to go out during the wee hours (pun intended) but in no time at all I now do my stuff every morning and again at night before bed. My foster mom says it took me no time at all to fall into a new routine. She says I’m a good boy. I’ll let her talk now.
A word from Ringo’s foster mom: I want all potential adopters to know that Ringo is a wonderful, typical, calm (most of the time) Golden. He will do very well as an all-the-time house dog. Left alone, he has not chewed up anything except the bandage on his tail a few times. (Yum.) He stays quiet while we are gone but gets pretty excited when he hears us at the door and he barks until we greet him. (I know this as I’ve watched our cameras.) He is very smart and quickly catches on to what we ask. He prefers not being left alone so if there is any chance to stay close to him for a while after his adoption then he would probably adjust very well.
I want this big beautiful traditionally red Golden Retriever to find that special person dedicated to loving him for the rest of his life. He definitely deserves the best home.
