Hi everyone…my name is Toby and I’m not even a year old yet.  Yes, that’s right…I’m still a mischievous, energetic, goofy, lovable pup.  My fantastic foster mom has been showing me the ropes and she keeps telling me how smart I am.  I have learned: sit, down, come, stay, off BUT ‘drop it’ or ‘leave it’ is still a work-in-progress.  I have a thing you humans call ‘guarding issues’ so constant reinforcement of that part of my education is important if you decide to take me into your family.  I’ve also been known to swallow things I shouldn’t like a bottle cap and part of a toy.  They think I’ll grow out of this habit but for now you would need to be vigilant to keep that kind of stuff away from me.  I’m also VERY strong as I’m a big boy and on the leash, I could be taking you for a walk…but on the gentle leader I’m good.  Other than that, I am a young energetic Golden full of love and the joys of spring.  I am not a big barker.  I am not afraid of loud noises and you can leave me alone if you have to go out without me.  The doc says I’m really healthy and I’m actually fine when I go to visit him.  I love people and other dogs but I can get excited and rambunctious around kids so it might be better if I’m not around young children (plus kids tend to leave things laying around and that could be problematic for me).  We have absolutely no idea how I would be with a cat.  A fenced yard would also be really good so I can run around safely.  I love my car rides but what I love the most is water ~ any kind of water…lakes, puddles, shower, rain, rivers.  If it’s wet, I’m all set.  Well, that’s about it for me.  This is Toby signing off for now.  Hope to meet you real soon…paws crossed.
