MADRA @ZaraGreyhound @DrShmoo Oh look at her face! She’s looking so happy to be away from the kennels! She’d be an amazin… https://t.co/1Gr5sT6WCo

***FIVE STAR HOME NEEEDED ASAP *** We haven't given you an update on our lovable boy Goldie in awhile. Goldie has been in our care for TEN MONTHS and shelter life was really taking a toll on him. He was overwhelmed, incredibly stressed out and it was difficult for our kennel crew to watch him deteriorating as the days rolled by, despite our efforts to provide enrichment, but nothing we could do could change the fact that he was living in a shelter. Luckily, along came the Doyle family and offered him a foster home. They've all fallen for him completely. [THANKS GUYS, YOU ARE AMAZING!] We're not surprised they're all smitten with him..his tail is always wagging when he sees his favourite people. The arrangement was always a foster one as they're not in a position to adopt a dog. They've said he is fantastic with people, loves a lot of company and that he is a VERY clever boy (who needs lots of mental stimulation to keep him happy.) Goldie is a two year old ultra charismatic Pitbull Labrador mix whom we all love dearly. The good stuff: He really loves to play outside and if you have a secure garden for him to gallop around in, he will be a very happy boy. He is also a very affectionate boy who would like to hang out with you on the couch. Goldie is a very, very clever chap and he responds really well to positive reinforcement training. He loves his toys and treat filled Kongs and Kong Wobbler. He has quite a few different cues and is just waiting for someone to teach him much more. Goldie is a really sweet lad who needs a patient and understanding person to allow him the time he needs to get comfortable in a new home. Things he needs your help with: He would love a home where someone will help him with his training as he can get over-excited at times and jumpy as a result of his enthusiasm... but this is something we can help a potential adopter work on with him and trust us, his endless love is worth the wait. He isn't always comfortable meeting new dogs so a rural location with a secure garden would be ideal for him. Once he finds a suitable home, we know he will make the greatest companion. He really can't stay in foster indefinitely and it would be awful to bring him back to our shelter, which causes him so much stress. Has anyone a spot in their heart and home for this special boy?
