This is the most recent information available; however, it may change as we learn more about the dog.
Meet our new RAGOM friend Reggie. He is a 1+-year-old, 50-pound Goldendoodle and is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, and microchipped.
Reggie is a well-mannered, playful pup. He knows his basic commands and is housebroken and crate trained. He walks nicely on a flat leash. He love-love-loves to go for walks, to play fetch (inside or outside), and to go for rides in the car. Tennis balls appear to be his toy of choice.
Reggie is still young - and will need a home that can provide him lots of exercise and stimulation. He is very voice-responsive, but if he gets bored or hasn't had a good walk, he will amuse himself with houseplants or deconstructing the tennis balls he has sneaked in from outside.
This handsome boy is very good-natured and really, really loves his people. He wants to be close by - and is very "helpful" as you go about your day (aka following at your heels or licking your face while you are trying to tie your shoes).
Reggie has also been through quite a bit of change in his young life - as his family adopted him from a breeding situation and then tried to re-home him before lovingly surrendering him to RAGOM. As we get to know him better and look at potential forever homes for him, there are a few things to keep in mind.
- No young children in the home. Reggie has shown some anxiety and some inappropriate reactions when hugged by a toddler.
- He has previously lived with a cat - and with proper introductions, we have no reason to believe he cannot be in a home with cats.
- Reggie does not require another dog in the home - he is doing fine as an only dog in his current foster home - but does want lots of attention (and play time) with his humans.
- He has lived with other dogs and appears to be dog-friendly, with the exception of high-value resources (food, food bowls, bones, beds); this behavior appears to be more extreme inside the home. Resource guarding from other dogs can be innate, learned, or situational behavior. Regardless, Reggie living in a home or interacting with other dogs may require short, mid- or long-term vigilance.
- Reggie has not demonstrated any resource issues with humans.
We will continue to share information as we get to know Reggie better.
