Gouda is a puppy at its best…and my pal as he wears the name of my very favorite cheese.Although said to be a good puppy, Gouda was relinquished into our care as his former masters acknowledged they did not have the time and what is needed to bring up a youngster. Gouda is all excited to see someone at his door. He accepts the leash in no time and is ready to frolic here and there, making the best of his time at the care center. Gouda wants to meet everybody, people and dogs alike. He gives stand up hugs and is a very sweet lap dog, kissing galore his caretaker. He is a big tail wagger and butt wiggler when he sees his peers, young or older and he does not understand when his enthusiasm is not reciprocated. Although Gouda has a lot to learn(house and leash training for example ), he is a great “sitter”, has no handling issues and does not guard his food and his chew that I could see while we spent time together. He can make all kinds of faces, serious, sad or happy and I so would love for him to keep his silly and joyous expressions for ever and ever in your care. Gouda is at the Manhattan Care Center, all ready to be yours. Come and meet him soon.
Gouda was surrendered because his owners didn’t have time to care for a puppy.
Gouda was reported to be friendly around strangers. He lived with children aged 2 and 8. He was very playful with them, but sometimes a little rough. Specifically, he sometimes scratches when he jumps on them. He has not lived with any other animals.
Gouda isn’t house trained yet. He will also sometimes chew objects inside the home, especially shoes. Gouda will chase a bowl of food if you take it away, and tries to play tug with treats that you take away. He loves to be held and enjoys baths. He will bark if a stranger approaches the home.
For a New Family to Know
Gouda was reported to have a very high activity level. He usually follows his owners around the home. He is used to dry dog food and goes on walks 1-2 times a day. He will go to the bathroom inside the house and outside the house- he is not yet fully potty trained. He has always been on a leash, and pulls hard.
Behavior During Intake
Gouda wanted to be near counselor, sitting in their lap and licking them. He allowed counselor to collar. He ran around and played with a toy for a little while, tail wagging.
