Chewy is NOT a golden retriever. He is an Eskipoo. He is bonded with Lily who is a golden retriever. This guy can still walk 3 miles, chase chickens and actually catch them and wants to run after rabbits. He is doing very well with my dogs after a slow introduction. He shows interest in my cat but she has an area where he cannot get to her. We have had some marking issues in the house. As the days go by it has gotten better. We are crating him when we are not home. He knows how to use the dog door but has quite put it together that that is how he can let himself out. He sleeps in our bed. For some reason he really loves my husband and will do his little dance for him the most.
