Welcome to GRR and the beginning of your new life, sweet Mongo. He has been through a lot in the last month since the death of his owner. just to get here but despite that, he is so happy and loving. That says a lot about Mongo. When asked to provide four words that describe him, his family said: loving, loyal, timid, and cuddly.

He hasn’t been with his foster family long so what you read here will be changing as he adjusts even more to a good life in his foster home. He has had to woeeing incidents in the house, which could easily be nerves considering the upheavals in his life. He is crate trained and goes in willingly and that is where he stays if no one is home. He sleeps on the bed or near the bed at night and did request a 3:00am potty break one night.

Mongo hasn’t been introduced to any children or cats, but he is good with other dogs. He walks with the aid of a harness. It may be a little early to tell but he seems to a good walker. Has not been playing with toys yet but looks interested when the other dogs in the house do.

His behavior in the house reveals a very sweet dog who likes to cuddle. He cuddled extra close during a recent thunderstorm…not terrified, just not a fan. When he’s not sleeping, he’s a bit restless. He loves to go outside but at this point he wants someone with him.

Mongo is a charming embodiment of his breed's qualities. His sweet and happy demeanor, combined with a touch of shyness, adds a unique depth to his personality. Mongo's curiosity is boundless, as he explores the world with his gentle spirit. Above all, his cuddly nature makes him the perfect companion for cozy moments and heartfelt snuggles. Mongo's name suits him well, radiating a sense of warmth and friendliness that captures the essence of this delightful Golden Retriever.

Ideal Home: It may be a little early to tell what kind of home would be best for him, but he is super friendly and gets along with small dogs.
