Oakley is an EGF dog because he came to GRR extremely timid and fearful of new experiences.  After several weeks with a trainer to assess his needs, this happy-go-lucky Golden has never met a stranger, is gaining confidence and ready to experience and enjoy life.   Oakley is settled in with his forever family.

Oakley's foster dad describes Oakley as Eager, Happy, Loving and Silly --- which is more-or-less your typical Golden puppy.  Oakley is housetrained, allowed free-to-roam inside when his foster dad leaves for short trips and sleeps through the night in his crate in the foster’s bedroom.  He also enjoys car rides.

As Oakley is becoming more comfortable in his foster home, his general energy level has increased.  He does well with a moderate walk in the morning and a play session or second walk in the afternoon/evening.  As his foster dad works from home, Oakley is enjoys sleeping under his foster’s feet with potty breaks every 2ish hours.  Oakley loves all humans so enjoys cuddling on the couch.  He is eager to meet other dogs on walks but can become overly exuberant; however Oakley takes correction to “calm down” well ---- typical young puppy.   His foster dad is working on fetch and Oakley has started to retrieve and return. He is a fast learner and eager to please.

Oakley is a very affectionate boy. He loves being close (literally on top of) his favorite humans and can feel anxious when they aren't within close reach. He is sweet with everyone he meets and, when calm, is an absolute joy to be around. He is also a goofball and will roll around like a silly boy when he's feeling happy.

Ideal Home:  Oakley’s ideal home will have someone home much of the day.  As with all Golden puppies, he needs someone who will provide the time and patience to help him learn you don’t always immediately get what you want --- ie petting, playing, walking etc.  A couple or family would be ideal as Oakley loves/needs human attention.  While not a working dog, Oakley does like to be out and about and needs someone who doesn't mind 2-3 walks a day or an equivalent amount of other physical/mental stimulation. Could you be the right match for this cute boy?
