Wally’s story begins like many other Goldens.  His family could no longer manage the needs of a large dog, so they made the tough decision to surrender him to GRR.  He is on the smaller side for a male golden and his tail may have been broken or is possibly a birth defect, but it doesn’t slow him down at all!  He is reliably house-trained and is working on crate training with his foster family.

Personality: Wally is eager to please and responds well to commands.  His foster family is hopeful that with a consistent routine, some of the separation anxiety he’s exhibited will subside.  Per his foster mom, “He is a sweet boy that wants to give you all the love in the world!”

Wally is an energetic male whose name may as well have been Bally! He loves balls and keeps himself entertained with a ball indoors.  He would play fetch all day long if he could and will drop his ball if he thinks there is a chance you’ll throw it again.

Ideal Home: Wally’s forever home will need to provide him with consistent training and plenty of activity (see above about BALLS!!!).  He has not been observed with children or cats but has encountered another dog during a walk without incident.  That said, he would do best in a home where he is the only pet.  If your home needs some spunk and an adorable, smiling four-legged friend, Wally may be the dog for you!
