Andy "Partially Sponsored Golden Retriever Young Male in Harrisonburg, Tennessee

My story
Right up front…

Andy is looking for a experienced family where they’ve had big dogs before. Andy can be reactionary to new people or protective through the fence or a car windows.

Definitely more suited for a one-dog owner. He is an alpha type dog, likes to be in charge so a strong dominant or alpha to counter, he Becomes overwhelmed Easily if his space, boundaries or territories are crossed. He can go into protection mode at times, become easily triggered, through car glass, fencing, and protective over his family. He’s very Protective over his home and his people. Needs time to warm up to new people and he likes to feel like he is in charge, so being an Alpha type he needs to controlled quickly and put in his place with a dominant voice, but once he is comfortable, he will be your best friend and trusted companion for life.

Andy is approximately 2 years old, 75 lbs, mixed breed who found himself alone in a shelter, a young lady adopted him, she’s a nurse at beginning of Covid and couldn’t give him the attention he needed.

We received a call for help, from that young lady, we don’t not know his origin story started, although I’m sure it wasn’t a happy beginning. Cats are ok, and maybe adult kids, he is curious about other dogs once he knows them loves to play. Andy is a lovable dog who will never leave your side, but need an experienced dog owner, someone that will giving him the time to be understood. Andy likes his butt scratched and rubbed. He likes long walks (although he can puller) and loves to sniff anything and everything along the way! He has had training, he knows sit and hand signals

Andy is House broken by being crate trained, will run to his kennel on request and asked to place, he needs a fenced in yard. ( I can talk you through that) I have many videos to send.

He’s a very hairy guy, brushing is a must, maybe a grooming professional initially. Can be left alone for long periods of time - does not chew or get into anything he's not supposed to. Likes to be right next to you on the couch and the bed. Well-trained - knows place, down, stay, sit, and working on heel. Loves peanut butter as a treat. He is neutered all vaccines and microchipped, and heartworm negative Since having him here we have had to work with him to to trust us, at first he will be a little nervous but give them time and he will fill your heart.

If you have a big heart, kindness and experience with this type of dog, please email and ask for an application, we would love to talk with you in detail about each pup after it is completed and sent back.

We received a sponsorship donation to help with Andy's adoption fee, so it’s been reduced to $400.
