Tundra was picked up by the  Copperas Cove Animal Shelter with his buddy Montana. This pretty white blond guy was a bit rattled after living in an animal shelter for a few days but his Golden personality and exuberance shined through when the GRR volunteer met him.  Tundra was one happy boy when he realized he was sitting in the GRR volunteer’s back seat and traveling to Austin…..this was his lucky day.  As a sidenote: Tundra’s buddy Montana came to GRR as well.

Personality: Tundra is a beautiful blonde young man – many a female golden would kill for that blonde hair! He came to GRR a bit rattled from all the upheaval in his life, moving from home to home to shelter to GRR, but he’s beginning to get a feel for what a “real” life feels like.

He has had some accidents in the house, perhaps due to all the changes in his life, but his foster mom is diligently working on that. He is not crated and is free to roam the house with the bedroom doors closed. He wants to jump up on people but responds well to his sit command. The people he knows he is happy to see and does not jump on them. He is particularly happy around children, but occasionally forgets how big he is. He is very attentive to the 7-year-old in the house, taking every chance to crawl into bed with her.

Tundra plays well with other dogs. He and his “foster brother” in the home love to chase squirrels and possums together. He has not had any exposure to cats. He is nice and calm in the car and every day he gets better on the leash although he’s a bit nervous going on walks. He hasn’t had the opportunity to swim, but his foster mom is sure he’d love it.

Inside the house, given the chance Tundra will chew on anything he can get his paws on. He has bones and Kongs to keep him busy but will still go in search of the elusive shoe or whatever may be in the trash can. He’s pretty calm in the house, however he needs to be kept busy. One of his favorite games is to remove all the toys in the toy box. Now THAT keeps him busy!

Tundra will bark and pace when he hears thunder, but when it comes to bedtime he sleeps through the night in his own bed or foster mom’s bed. He makes a great snuggle buddy.

Tundra is high energy, outgoing, and loves people. He’s learning the proper commands. At his vet visits, they always remark on how sweet he is. He is an exceptionally smart and affectionate dog.

Ideal Home: Tundra does well with children, but they should be older since he is such a big boy. He would be happy in a home with another dog or as an only dog. He loves to be with his humans and would surely benefit from a home where someone is home a lot. His forever family needs to understand that he is still in his puppy/adolescent stage who can be patient with him as he learns.
