A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Our golden boy! Cute fold over ears, a sleek gold coat with eyes to match, and a tail that never stops wagging. Eager in his kennel and easily leashed we head out the door, Yeti happy for the chance to go potty the moment we hit the street. Lovely leash manners, a wagging tail, and a bouncy step all speak to the delight that is Yeti. He has a sweet and lively energy, ignores other dogs we pass on our walk and in his playgroups has enjoyed running play with both males and females. A pro at posing for photos he makes my job easy with a perfect response to ‘sit’, and then looks up expectantly waiting for his reward treat and taking it gently. Enthusiastic about hugs and kisses, Yeti comes in my lap for some loving as his tail wags exuberantly. It’s no surprise that this happy go lucky pup has great scores in every category on his behavior assessment indicating he would be a good fit in any home with average dog experience. Puppy like in his enthusiasm for everything, he responds well to commands with the promise of a treat so will be easy to train with lots of positive rewards. He’s small, and if you ask him he’ll tell you he’s lap size ready to make it work in any lap willing to have him. Is it yours?

ENERGY LEVEL:We have no history on Yeti so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION:AVERAGE (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
