Hi everyone…my name is Matt and I’m a 3-year-old Golden-Lab mix. When I first was lucky enough to join the GR program, I was quite nervous and didn’t really understand what was happening. Even today, when I meet someone new, I’m still cautious until I get to know them, then I’m just my loving, friendly self. My wonderful foster family have been showing me the ropes and I’m learning a lot. For example, I am really good on that leash thing. I still need to work on my counter surfing, play biting, jumping up, and chewing stuff but even those things have improved a lot according to my foster mom. So, that’s pretty good, right? That means my new family will have to continue with my training and they need to be consistent and firm so that I continue to progress in the right direction, so that’s why I need an experienced owner. I love people once I get to know them and I love other dogs right away. I don’t like cats and I’m probably a bit too enthusiastic to be around young children at this time. Again, once I get to know you, you can touch me anywhere. I love being brushed. I can be left alone if you have to go out without me. Loud noises make me curious but I don’t freak out. I love my car rides and my walkies. The doc says I’m healthy and my lovely foster family describes me as a good, happy boy with an infectious smile. So that’s my story. I hope to meet you really soon and show you that smile of mine.
