1 year old
This beautiful pup is Kimmie, a 1 year old golden who recently came to us from Turkey. Her former family went on vacation and left her at a boarding facility, and never came back for her. We promised her we would find her a wonderful forever family here in the US.
Kimmie is an exceptional puppy. She is a happy, playful, and well adjusted girl who absolutely loves attention from her humans. She will follow you from room to room, so definitely a Velcro pup. Kimmie happily greets everyone she meets...both dogs and people. She has been curious about the cat but not in a prey driven way. She plays very well with other dogs, and tends to be more on the submissive side. Her puppy side definitely comes out when it’s time for zoomies, and she will tear around the yard with joy.
Kimmie loves going on walks, and is doing great with the help of a gentle leader head collar. She is currently getting 2-3 pack walks a day (3+ miles total) plus play with her doggie foster sibling. In addition to her walks she loves playing with toys, and enjoys a good game of fetch. She would love to have a big toy basket at her forever home. Kimmie would do great in a home with another playful dog, or as an only dog if her humans are around most of the time and she has access to regular puppy play dates.
Kimmie hasn’t had any accidents at her foster home, but does have direct access to the backyard during the day. As a young girl, she does need guidance and training but is highly treat motivated and eager to please. She is curious about all the good things left on counters, but takes gentle verbal correction very well. Kimmie does pick up items left within her reach, and will bring them to you...but those are easily swapped out with a toy or treat.
Kimmie will alert bark when someone enters the house, but quickly calms down. Her future family should plan to enroll her in a positive reinforcement training class, as she is a smart girl and is eager to please. Kimmie is still very much a puppy, and requires lots of exercise, patience, consistency, and most of all lots and lots of love.

Kimmie is being fostered in Torrance.
