Meet GRR’s Lennon! This boy was surrendered with his littermate, also a GRR pup, McCartney.   Lennon is a happy young Golden who is described as both silly and bouncy!  Lennon is reliably house-trained, but he does need a consistent routine to avoid any accidents.  Right now, he stays in his crate when left alone for a few hours at a time, and that is also where he sleeps at night in his owner’s room.

Lennon enjoys the company of children and of most humans, really- however, sometimes he will become shy at first if a person is wearing a hat. He does jump on visitors (because he is so glad they’ve arrived), but his foster family is working with him on this and redirecting his behavior.  He plays great with other dogs, and currently has not been exposed to cats.  Lennon has really done well walking on a leash and has progressed to not even pulling for the most part.  This silly boy does like to chase and retrieve a ball, and at times he will even roll the ball back to you!

Due to the chilly temperatures lately, Lennon hasn’t gone for a swim (yet), but he likes to dip his paws into the shallow area of his foster family’s pool after playing in the yard!  In time, Lennon has really adjusted well to the people in his foster family, but he does have some separation anxiety initially when someone leaves the home and will pace and search for the person. He is a gentle treat-taker and when he is excited and playing, he even has a cute jumping/bucking move that he shows off!

Lennon is learning commands -he has mastered “sit”, and is working on “stay” and “down”.  He is calm when being brushed and wiggly at bath time. Overall, Lennon is a typical Golden puppy- sweet, loves to play and cannot get enough human attention!  He has shown great progress in feeling more confident and comfortable.  One thing he does forget is to swallow all of his water before leaving the bowl, which leaves a nice trail of water on the floor - oops!

Ideal Home: An ideal home for Lennon would be one where his people are routine-driven, have TONS of time for him, and are willing to work with him through his puppy moments and beyond.  When things do change, Lennon craves human reassurance and love.  Can you Imagine having Lennon as part of your family?
