This gorgeous girl is April. April is a 1 ½ year old golden retriever who is sweet as can be! She came into rescue when her owners could no longer care for her. She has been settling in at her foster home over the last few weeks and is now ready to start the search for her perfect forever family. April is your typical golden who is always wanting love and attention. She wants to be with her people as often as she can, and is definitely a velcro doggy. One of April’s favorite things is to cuddle with her people. She will rest her head on you to get pets and show you her affection.
April loves all her toys, especially her tennis balls. She is great at fetch and will happily prance back to you with the ball in her mouth ready for more, but is still learning to drop it for her foster to throw. Her forever family should be prepared for many games of fetch throughout the day! April also loves picking up everything and anything she can get her mouth on. Fortunately she hasn’t destroyed the things she picks up, other than paper goods...which apparently are irresistible. Her future family should be sure to keep paper goods out of reach!
April is very smart and eager to please, and responsive to verbal corrections. She has been very good in the potty training department, and hasn’t had any potty accidents in her foster home. She does have access to the yard all day, so having a large grassy yard that she can let herself out to potty in will be important for her success in her future home.
Because April is young, and very treat motivated, she would benefit from attending positive reinforcement training classes with her forever family. April very much enjoys her daily walks, so an outdoorsy, active family would be the right fit for her. She is still learning to walk on leash, but she walks well with the use of a gentle leader head collar. She is very eager to meet new people but can be a bit wary of new dogs. April didn’t have many opportunities to socialize with other dogs prior to rescue so she will need careful introductions to new dogs and lots of positive experiences meeting dogs. April would be very happy in a home with older kids and another dog to play with and show her the ropes.
