My name is Fergus and I’m a one-year-old puppy. Yes, I am still a pup with puppy energy, puppy cuteness, puppy mischief, and puppy training needs. Don’t worry though…I’m potty trained and know some of my commands but in my previous life I really didn’t get much schooling so I’m looking for a family who is used to training a pup and willing to start my schooling, possible taking me to puppy classes. I will be much easier to train than an 8-week-old pup because I already know a thing or two but I will need consistency and lots of love and reinforcement. Having said all of that, I am as cute as a button and have been described as very loving and sweet. I am a big, strong, healthy, handsome boy according to everyone I meet and my doc describes me as a beautiful specimen of a Golden but he did add that I’m in my teenage rebellious stage in need of a strong, experienced leader. As part of my training, I need more socialization with people and other dogs. I currently live with my canine sister and we get along great but other dogs can be hit or miss, although I’m more submissive than aggressive. I love people but can be timid in new situations. All of this in GR’s opinion will change with patience, consistency, and love. I am already gentle with my treats. I can be touched anywhere. Loud noises don’t bother me too much. I don’t like being left alone but am fine for a couple of hours at a time. I love being outside and playing catch. I love swimming. I love rolling in the mud ~ betcha you’re happy about that! So maybe the order I should be doing this in is rolling in the mud first and then going for a swim (ha-ha). I love my walks, runs, and hikes so an active family is a must for me. Here’s what my incredible foster mom says about me: Fergus is a true romantic who loves to show his love by cuddling while you take his paw and hold his head. He has huge potential to be the perfect Golden as long as the new family understands his training needs.” Might you be that perfect family?
