Personality: So you ask, “How sweet can a Golden be?” Jenny is the answer.  To quote her GRR foster, “She is very, very sweet!!!”  To match her sweetness, she is always very happy and outgoing.  For an adult Golden, her energy level is great – launching herself up and down the staircase.  It only took a day or so for Jenny to partner up with her foster’s Golden, and now they are best pals, romping in the back yard and lounging in the house together.   She loves getting affection from all comers, but will also lay down and relax if you shift your attention to other things. Being your companion is her thing.

In her visit to the vet, Jenny came out with flying colors, except for some minor ear yeast that is resolving itself now with medication.  Her manners are very good, with no accidents in the house at all.  During mealtime, she is not protective of her bowl, but offer her a treat, and that treat is all hers and belongs to no one else!  She has been known to be tempted by delicacies on the kitchen counter, as well. She insists no one is perfect! Once in bed, she is quiet and sleeps soundly through the night. No midnight trips to the backyard for her!

Her manners on the leash during walks are great, and walking a few blocks is enough distance for her. Jenny would just as soon take a walk rather than ride in the car, but will accept a ride by sitting on the floor board and showing her concern by panting. During the recent thunderstorms, she also panted and wanted to be in the same room with her foster until the storm passed.  Based on her reaction to Austin drivers and thunder storms, she seems to have a sixth sense of good judgement!

With her stellar personality, Jenny is the perfect family dog.

 Ideal Home:    Jenny would enjoy fun companionship in a forever home with singles, couples, older children and other dogs. She has not had a chance to give her thoughts on including cats just yet.  Her outgoing nature and sweet disposition make her ideal for an environment ready for plenty of interaction.
