Personality: Amelia made her way to GRR thanks to a good Samaritan who found her wondering alone. She is with her foster family now waiting for her forever family to fall in love with her and take her home with them.

Amelia is reliably housetrained. She is happy to go into her crate for meals or bedtime. When left alone she is crated and has no problem with that. She has not been around children. When she gets excited around people, she jumps near but not on them and a quick “no” calms her right away.

She loves to play with the family dogs, often initiating a bit of wrestling with the other Golden in the house. The more comfortable she gets in foster home, the more she will become exuberant and yip and play bark. She’s quite curious about the cat in the house. She has not shown a bit of aggression towards kitty. When kitty hissed and swatted at one of the other dogs. Amelia acted terrified. Looks like she knows to leave kitty alone.

Amelia has only been in the car once and she did seem a bit nervous. As time passes, her confidence will build. Right now, walking on a leash scares her, and she becomes a bit skittish. Time will fix this issue as she gets for used to her surroundings and her new harness. She hasn’t had a chance to test her swimming skills.

Amelia spends her bedtime in the crate and has been sleeping through the night. She likes to be brushed. Awww, the attention!

She will retrieve a ball or toy if the other dogs do not distract her. The little goof got stuck under the bed while trying to retrieve a ball! She will bring you a toy and drop it if you try to take it. She’s not tried to steal a toy from one of the other dogs or play of tug-of-war. If one of the other dogs wants the toy Amelia is playing with, she politely lets them have it. Besides playing with toys and the dogs, she gets mental stimulation from training sessions. She likes the one-on-one time with a human and seems eager to please.

Amelia is medium energy, appropriate for her age. Although she loves to play and romp, she also loves snuggles and some quiet time. She doesn’t like to be left alone in a room, so she is always close by a family member. She’s such a sweet girl. And smart? After only 2 weeks in the house, she has learned 3 important commands.

Ideal Home: A great home for Amelia would be one that has a confident dog to show her the ropes and help her get comfortable with her new home. She would probably love kids…more people to love on her. The family should be devoted to continuing her training and lead the way for her to be the perfect addition to a family.
