Owen (aka “Big O”) – Adopted!

Owen #211155 - 5

Dog ID:  211155    Sex:  Male    Age:  1 Year old

Hi there – my name is Owen and I’m a one-year-old Golden Retriever. My foster family has nicknamed me “Big O” because I am such a tall boy! I weigh 86 lbs. – I’m not overweight, it’s just these long legs that put me in the 80’s. Besides needing on-going training like all one-year-old Goldens do, I’m a delightful pup with a classic Golden personality!

My foster family has their own young male Golden, and we have become fast friends! I would love to have a canine sibling to play with in my forever home because I love to play with other dogs, I’m also great with children! In fact, I’d be a GREAT family dog as long as the kids aren’t afraid of 86+ lbs. of dog running through and they don’t leave things within my reach for me to destroy! I’m very smart – I already know how to Sit, Shake, and I’m working on Down and Stay…  I do best at those last two commands when a treat is part of the equation! 😉  Just know that I am a young boy still learning to mind my manners.

I love to go for car rides and walks. I love to play, rest, play, rest, then play some more, and I love to be with my humans! Be warned:  if you’re sitting and you start to pet me, I will roll over for a belly rub. Even at my svelte 86 pounds, I think I’m a lap dog! In fact, I’m ready for a permanent lap to cuddle on. Might it be yours?
