Golden Retriever/Collie Mix
1 -2 years old
This sweet boy is Edison, aka Eddy, who is about 1 - 2 years of age. He was rescued as a stray from the streets of San Bernardino. He is a Golden Retriever/Collie mix and is just sweeter than pie. Eddy is being fostered with 2 dogs and gets along with them very well. Eddy is very playful and loves playing tug of war with his toys and he will play with the humans or the doggies.
Eddy is very interested in playing, chasing and wrestling with his doggie siblings. Eddy is pretty good about chewing only appropriate things, but his foster mom did catch him stealing her shoe before leaving for work one morning. Of course it became a game of chase with Eddy running with the shoe in his mouth and then proceeding to toss it in the air! Eddy is a very energetic dog but he is also very calm too. He is a very good listener to verbal correction and has learned a lot from observing his foster doggie siblings. Eddy is potty trained and figured out the doggy door within a few hours of coming to his foster home. He is very affectionate and loves giving doggy kisses aka licking your face.
Eddy can be an active little guy when he gets to playing but can settle down quickly as well. He loves being petted and if you start petting him, sometimes he will drop to the floor and roll over because he wants a belly rub!!! It’s the cutest thing you will ever see. Eddy is very happy and his tail is always wagging, he will greet you at the door with a big smile and his tail wagging when you come home. He does like to jump on you when you get home but responds well to verbal commands.
Eddy would benefit by a positive reinforcement training course. He pulls a bit on leash, so a harness or gentle leader head collar would be helpful. He mastered the sit command pretty quickly when realizing that in his foster’s home you must sit like a gentleman to receive a treat; proving that Eddy is a quick learner. Eddy is truly a love bug and will make a wonderful addition to any family who is lucky enough to adopt him. He would do great with a family with children and other dogs. He loves to play but he also loves to chill out next to you or on the sofa. He is a smart little guy, happy and playful.
Eddy is crate trained, but also enjoys sleeping on the floor or spreading out on the sofa. Recently, he has taken to cuddling next to his doggie foster sister at night, which is just adorable. Eddy also likes sleeping with his foster family, although sometimes he likes to play a little bit before settling down on the bed. He loves to cuddle and loves to be petted while sleeping next to you. We are looking for a family who wants a playful, loving, smart, and cuddly dog! His forever home should be prepared to commit to daily exercise, play, training, and most of all, lots of love. He will reward you with a lifetime of unconditional love and companionship!
