Needs to have a fenced environment and would benefit from obedience training.
Allie is a beautiful Golden, relinquished by a puppy mill breeder. While she is timid and shy right now, she walks well on a leash. In addition to that encouraging detail is that she is super sweet and her tail never stops wagging. We think that means she understand joy and love--she'll adjust quickly and become part of your home!
Foster Update: 3/8/19
Allie is a gentle soul who is working hard to be brave in this scary new world! While Allie may be afraid of the noises and quick movements, she will fight through all that fear for some special love from the people around her. She adores human interaction and will stand there for hours while you pet her soft curls. Did we mention how adorable those dark curls are? She is so very curly and it's just another thing that makes you fall head over heels in love with her. She has done great with our 2 dogs (a golden and a pit bull mix) and is growing more confident every day. She recently has begun engaging in play with our other golden and will even offer us play bows whenever she is excited. She has become much more comfortable going into her crate and is working on learning all about going down steps and slippery hardwood floors. Toys are also still novel items to her, however, she has started to show some interest in chewing on elk antlers and loves to watch our golden play with toys. We've been working to find a food that she likes as she has proven to be a picky eater but her current favorites include hot dogs, liverwurst, and chicken. Her housetraining as been a breeze and she hasn't had one accident in the house. She still gets very nervous when outside, especially at night and wears both a harness and martingale collar when going out for added safety.
Allie will need a home with a family who is patient and will give her time to adjust to the new life around her. She will need a lot of encouragement and praise to help her grow more and more confident every day. A little extra time and patience is so incredibly worth it for the love you will get from this curly girl!
