Type of Surrender: Owner Turn In

Status: Matched

Age: 1-1/2

Personality: Enthusiastic, curious, athletic and loving are words that best describe this handsome boy.  Ranger is your typical, high-energy young Golden that needs both physical and mental stimulation to use some of his energy. 

Ranger is a happy, silly young boy who is so very handsome,  He is also quite smart.  Ranger’s foster family is working on basic training and he’s catching on quickly; however he needs an adopting family who will continue training and consistently setting boundaries.  Ranger has been left alone up to 4 hours without problems but he’s too young and energetic to be left alone every day, all day.  He loves playing with larger dogs but should NOT be in a home with cats or small dogs.  He’d likely enjoy a home with older children/teens.

Ranger is eager to please, loves attention and is becoming a good office dog in his foster home as he lays in the hall while his foster works.  He’s your typical, goofy teenager but is doing well in transitioning from teen to adulthood.  Ranger is a fun-loving boy who has enthusiasm and a zest-for-life.  His foster mom suspects he’d be good at Dock Diving and Agility as he’s smart and catches on quickly. 

Ranger enjoys brain games and sniffing games which are helping to keep his brain active while building his self-confidence. In typical young dog fashion, Ranger loves to chew and destroy toys. Good thing he has a lot of them! Ranger has not been swimming yet, but his foster family predicts he will be a huge fan of the water.  He’s very curious and will find ways to entertain himself if left to his own devices. 

Ranger is a gorgeous, young Golden who is still learning all that is entailed with being an inside, family dog.   He needs an adopting family who has a consistent, firm but loving approach.  This handsome boy always has toys in his mouth, sometimes attempting to pick up several at once without much success! He likes to share sweet kisses to show his love without being overly pushy.

Ideal Home:  Handsome, sweet Ranger needs a family willing to dedicate time for continued training so he will flourish into a confident, well-mannered Golden.  With a bit of effort on your part to match his enthusiasm for play and exercise, you will have one awesome boy.  Please note that Ranger cannot be in a home with cats or small dogs; however he enjoys playing with large dogs.
