Ken and Barbie are the most gorgeous pair of Goldens you will ever meet! Ken is approximately 6 years old and Barbie is approximately 8 years old.  This pair came into rescue when their owner was no longer able to care for them.  Before coming into rescue, these two spent most of their life living outside.  They didn’t know how to use stairs,  jump in or out of a car/truck, or play fetch.  Since they've been in foster care, they have quickly learned how to do all these things and are loving life!  Ken and Barbie have both have learned to sit, lay down, go to their beds, play fetch and are doing well with potty training.  They do get 3-4 big walks and will bring you the leash as a reminder after a few hours of rest.  They walk well on leash with the use of a EZ walk harness.  This pair has exceptional house manners. T hey haven’t eaten out of the trash, counter surfed , or begged.  

Ken is the more energetic one out of the two and loves to snuggle.  He is very much a velcro dog and would love to go for daily car rides with you if invited.  His favorite thing to do is accompany his foster dad to the ice rink for his hockey games!  Ken does initially act shy around new people and will duck when being pet by someone he hasn’t met before but has made a lot of improvement due to receiving lots of attention in his foster home.  While on walks his foster dad keeps a pocket full of treats as sometimes he does get distracted by other dogs and will bark/pull in their direction.     

Barbie is an all around love bug.  She will paw at you, stare with her big eyes, and talk with her sweet gurgle until you acknowledge her.  This girl is pretty much perfect.  Barbie came into rescue at 120 pounds.  She has since lost about 10 pounds but will need to lose another 30-40 to be at a healthy weight.  She goes on 3 mile walks per day and her forever family should be committed to keeping up with this amount of exercise.  She too loves car rides, but getting her in the car isn’t the easiest at her current weight.  She loves to bring you her leash or a furry friend as a gift when she is ready to play or go on a walk.     These two have never fought over a toy, bone, or food, and love to cuddle and are pretty simple to please.  In return they will bring such joy to your family.
