PETITE, SHY 6 YEAR OLD GIRL Meet CASIA #4211 ( we call her Casey), a 6 year old, petite Golden (probably a little mix of something else) who was turned in to us by her family because she was spending lots of time in the backyard and was not so happy about it. She has a lot of energy, you see, and you would never guess she is six years old!
She is a petite, insecure girl and responds slowly to gentle, kind words and movements. Her foster family is showing her there is no need to fear noises and bark so much at them. Her barking has lessened as she has become used to the normal sounds of the neighborhood, but she will definitely let you know when someone is at the door. Casey is looking for a gentle, knowledgeable, and patient family without young children as she will need some training.
She’s very well-mannered when left alone and secured in one room of the house, and entertains herself with her balls and stuffed animals while you are away. But woe be it to any plastic bag left unattended! When they are home, her foster family will leave the back door open, and Casey goes outside to potty, and might smell around a bit, but then she wants to come right back in. She is best not left unattended for any length of time outside however, as she will try to bury her stuffies when you aren’t looking!
We would like Casey to be your one and only doggy. She does bark at dogs on a walk in the neighborhood but does not pay any attention to the neighbor’s Golden when he pokes his nose through the fence and tries to get a kiss or two. At the vet, she was “curious” about other dogs, pulling to go greet them. She does want to chase after any squirrel or bird within sniffing distance; and we have no idea if she likes cats. We have not taken her to the dog park. Most likely, given a calm introduction to other nice dogs, she will be accepting of them.
She is a Velcro girl and is happiest when she is simply sitting next to you so you can scratch her ears for hours on end. And when you stop scratching she is known to sneak onto your lap until you notice that she is still there! She doesn’t seem to have any desire to get onto the furniture though and is happy to have a bed to sleep on next to her foster parents.
She is wonderful in the car and she is good walking with a harness although she will pull quite a bit with just her collar. She does come when called, however, she does try her Houdini act when you open the door so you will have to watch out that she doesn’t dash out the door.
If you think Casey would feel safe in your home, you have the time and patience to accommodate her insecurities, please inquire to Casey’s SCGRRescue Representative, firstname.lastname@example.org
