Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Chase. He is a very handsome Golden Retriever who is 5 years old. He loves other dogs, but we do not know how he is with cats. He does best with older children. Chase was an owner surrender. Chase is a very high energy dog. He has the energy level of a 1-year-old dog. Chase never stops, he now plays with the other foster dogs in the home all day long. He plays hard and rough so will need another dog in the home that enjoys and will participate in that type of play. He is not your typical, calm, and docile Golden. He is assertive and when he wants something he goes for it. He is very loving and will give kisses but still can be mouthy when excited. Having the other dogs to play with have relieved any anxiety he may have had previously. His previous home had him in a garage for 9 hours a day with access to the fenced yard. This is not the type of dog that could handle that kind of dynamic. He requires human companionship and a canine playmate. He is an inside dog now since arriving in foster care. Chase has been well looked after in his previous home. He was well vetted and knows his basic commands. He is quite good on a leash and has no dog aggression at all. The more dogs the better. He was too heavy when he arrived, coming in at 81lbs but now having playmates, he is about 75lbs. Chase has a very good appetite and is fed twice daily in a crate. He hates being locked in a crate and will bark as soon as dinner is done. He takes food gently and gives kisses. Chase does love to play fetch with a ball. He rides very well in the car. Chase is brushed daily and enjoys it. The ideal home for Chase is one with another active large dog to play with that doesn't mind rough play. Lots of walks and activity outside of the home is great, as long as he is with the family. He doesn't do well be tied up outside. Cottage life would suit him well. He will be fine off-leash if camping or on hikes as long as he is with the family. Chase is neutered, up to date with vaccines, 4 DX tested negative and on heartworm, flea, and tick prevention. A fully fenced yard, another large active canine playmate, no felines in the home, and a Veterinarian History of Compliance is mandatory to apply for Chase.
