Sad Eye Arnie
This boy needs a home.
Hair/color: Gold with white markings, medium length
Age: 4-5 years
Breed: Golden Retriever mix
Arnie is a 4-5 year old male golden retriever mix. He is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all his shots; is gold in color with white markings on his nose and chest. Arnie is a sweet boy who suffers from fear of the unfamiliar. He is completely housebroken, but not leash-trained, and needs a home with direct access to a secure yard. He is somewhat of a couch potato and prefers to spend most of his time in his bed except when he's letting you pet and love on him. He gets along with dogs of all sizes, age, and gender, and completely ignores the cat in his foster home.
Arnie is one of 150 dogs rescued in January 2008 from a hoarding situation in the Nevada desert. When Arnie came to his foster home a year ago, he hid from humans, cringed when he was approached, had never worn a collar, and never slept indoors. Now he comes to his foster family and their visitors for attention, will sit on command, sits up and begs, and is currently working on offering his paw for a treat and walking on a leash.
Arnie would do best in a quiet home without children. He needs someone with patience and understanding to allow him to get used to his new surroundings and who can offer him a fairly routine life. Experience with fearful dogs is a plus.
