Personality.  Hunter was surrendered by his owner because the owner had three large, unaltered dogs and two small dogs.  The large female went into heat and the situation became chaotic with two large, unaltered males and a female in heat.  So the owner called GRR and Hunter became a GRR Golden.

Hunter spent two weeks in foster care where the foster says “he’s such a good boy” and very calm in the house unless his foster family gets him excited to play,  He’s housebroken, loves to walk (with a little pulling on the lash) and loves to retrieve and play fetch.  He sleeps peacefully through the night, preferably in his foster’s bed,  likes car rides and is left free-to-roam in the house when the foster is gone.  Hunter is very calm around strangers and likes sleeping under his human’s desk.  Hunter is so loving and quite flexible to whatever you want. 

Hunter just finished two weeks in Board-and-Train and this is how his trainer describes Hunter:  “He’s what we call the perfect brunch dog.  The dog you can take to the farmer’s market.  Happy to be out with his person, will say hello to people and dogs around him, doesn’t beg and is just happy to fall asleep at your feet while you sit on the patio.” 

During his training, Hunter was exposed to new dogs, cats, car rides, and the proper greeting of new people.  Hunter acclimated well to the trainer’s pack of dogs and felt comfortable with them after a few days.  He has age-appropriate energy and is happy to romp outside but settle quickly inside.  Hunter is happiest spending time with humans, knows basic commands of sit and recall, is housebroken and kennel trained.  He is working on not jumping on people when greeting them..  He is very human-soft so just wants to make you happy. 

 Ideal Home:  Hunter will do great in a variety of homes.  He would do well in a home with another NICE dog; however he’s way more people-focused than dog-focused so he’d be great as an only dog too.  He loves the kittens he’s interacted with and would be good with teens.  Hunter needs a family that incorporates him into their everyday routines.  He loves human companionship so an ideal day would be playing outside, cuddling inside, sleeping under his human’s desk or hanging out in the kitchen.
