Meet one year old, 80 pound Dorado. He is a very handsome, very energetic, golden retriever boy that needs to learn his manners :) Unfortunately, when Dorado was a puppy no one ever taught him how to be a good family member. Add this into the fact that golden retrievers tend to be mouthy when it comes chewing, grabbing whatever is available. They love to run off with a shoe never to give it up again.
So Dorado needs a family to teach him many of the puppy training he missed.
He needs to learn how to walk on a leash as well and learn to not destroy the leash as he walks. Dorado has a good boy inside him and just needs someone with the time to take him to training. In fact, we've called in a trainer to help Dorado begin learning right now.
Dorado is doing really well in his foster home Foster mom calls him "Bear" or "Baloo", and he likes both names very well. He loves to play with his female foster sister, carrying a big long stick together in the backyard. It's adorable to see--check out the video. He will need another young dog as his pal who can tolerate his energy and initial lack of manners.
Due to his energy and 80 pound weight, no kids under the age of 13 yrs old as he will easily knock kids over. If you would like to be considered to adopt Dorado and have time, patience and want an amazing dog that is inside ready to pop out with your loving care, please read our adoption policies and follow the directions from there.
