Adoption Alert ~ Howie #2703 - ADOPTED!!

Hi everyone…my name is Howie and I’m a boy around six years of age.  The caring folks at Golden Rescue found me and I’m so lucky.  I’m number #2703.  Wow!!!  That means these good people have rescued over 2,700 Goldens before me ~ that is simply amazing!!!  I’m with my fantastic foster family at the moment and they have been so kind and loving towards me.  Oh, what a lucky boy am I!  They have been showing me the ropes and I’m doing pretty well.  I have made a few mistakes in the house but I’m learning that doing that is a no-no and I’ve almost got that house training thing down pat.  I feel silly that I didn’t know that already.  I know my commands and I’m even really good on the leash.  I’m not a big barker, loud noises don’t bother me, and I’m gentle with my treats.  The only other thing I’m working on is being left alone.  I don’t like it; however, I’m much better if you leave music on when you leave and if there is another dog to keep me company…then I’m mostly fine.  My foster dad describes me as a big bundle of gentle joy with a great big heart.  Right back at you!  I love everyone I meet old or young, all dogs and even cats, my walkies, and car rides.  But the things I looooove the most are my toys, being brushed and cuddled, and bananas.  And, oh yes, I forgot to mention I’m pretty healthy.  Well you know what they say…a banana a day keeps the doctor away.  Teehee!
