Howdy y’all, my name is Buddy Bill. I am a 16-month-old Golden Retriever who is
looking for one lucky family to share my life with. Truth be told, I still act like a
young puppy and need to be reminded of the obedience I previously learned, so
GRRA enrolled me in their GRRA’s Paws for Success program, where I have been
receiving refresher courses in basic obedience, consistency, and structure. Wow, I
was amazed at how quickly I remembered just how much I already knew. Even
though it was hard at times practicing what I once knew, it all quickly came back to
me, and I had so much fun relearning.
I am a typical large, very energetic young male Golden Retriever, so it is best that I
live with an active family that loves going for long walks, runs and will do lots of
exercise with me. Someone who works from home at least part time or is retired
would be awesome. If you do work outside the home, you will need to find someone
who will exercise me during the day while you are at work. Since I am such a big
boy I would do best with older teenagers because I sometimes forget just how big
and strong I really am.
After all the hard work I put in, I really need an experienced dog family who is
committed to providing the structure, continued training, and physical/mental
stimulation that I need to thrive in my new home. GRRA Paws for Success
behaviorists said that I have become a bit hand shy, when a hand or arm quickly
comes at me from the side or from behind my head. I will flinch but once I remind
myself that you just want to pet me or love on me, I wag my tail and lean in for all
the love I can get.
I love to play ball and do activities where I keep my mind and body busy. I also
enjoy long car rides with my people and love a good cuddle. While I like the
company of other dogs, I do not necessarily need to have one in my new home. I am
not big on cats. I just have too much energy and if I am being totally transparent
here, I would just want to chase them. My bad! Oh, and before I forget, if you have
a pool or water of any kind, it just may be love at first sight!
I absolutely adore people and am very outgoing and playful. If you are looking for a
complete love bug and would enjoy exercising and playing with me - I am your man.
I love everyone and am extremely affectionate, and really just want to please.
What more could you ask for? Do not let this once in a lifetime opportunity pass
you by. Contact your Adoption Coordinator right now and get your application in
before someone else snatches me up. I promise you that you will not regret it.
