We had a volunteer take off work to pull this sweet gal from an Ohio shelter.
Janey was found running in a pack of 7 dogs and was picked up by a dog warden at the shelter. Janey is a 2 year old, 35 pound golden retriever / shepherd mix. Janey is quite shy at first with people, but does slowly warm up. She is much more trusting of dogs and was good with meeting her siblings in her foster home.
We are pretty sure she has never lived in a home before, so she will need time and patience to figure out that actually living in a house is better then being on the run! Janey has been fascinated by the TV!
Since she arrived on May 1st, we don't have too much information to share with you just yet other than she is in heat now and will be spayed soon. Janey is also learning how to walk on a leash. She is not housebroken, and needs to learn how to give her foster mom signals that she has to go outside and go potty.
After about a week in a foster home, she is still a fairly skittish. Janey prefers to follow foster mom around the house instead being comfortable when foster mom approaches her. In fact, she likes foster mom to be still and then she gives her licks. However, she does sleep in the bed with her foster mom each night, so she is comfortable taking that step.
Janey loves to chew on her "chew bones"--even in the middle of the night at times :)
A fenced yard is preferred to invisible fence for this girl, due to her background. No children under the age of 10 years old in the home as fast movements will most likely scare her.
If you would like to be considered to adopt Janey or another golden retriever, please read our adoption adoption policies
and follow the directions from there.
