Kris is a 2-year-old Golden Retriever that came to GRRoW. He is a beautiful light golden color with a very thick coat. He has been with his foster family for about 9 days now and is settling in nicely. His vet visit went well, and he is in good health except for being a little overweight. Doctor says he could stand to lose about 3-5 pounds. When Kris came to stay with us it was clear he did not understand commands but has caught on quickly. He now responds to his name and simple commands like “come” and “walk”. He does pull a bit when he walks. However, he settles down after a few blocks. He is higher energy while outside but settles nicely when in doors. Kris is not a huge fan of cars driving by, so we are working on that. We have nicknamed him “Loverboy” because he is a huge cuddly lap dog. He is most content lying on the sofa with his head in your lap. A couple of things we learned about Kris is that he likes to jump up when greeting people. Kris does periodically jump on us but that is getting better as he is a pretty fast learner. We have noticed he does mouth but only a few times. He has not done it over the last few days so not sure if he just stopped on his own or does it occasionally. At this time I can say Kris is a lot of fun and has a “Golden” temperament.
