Sugar is Ready for her Fuever Family

Sugar is an easy going, absolute sweetheart of a senior girl.

She is 12 years and 5 months young and surprising still full of energy.

Weight was 90 pounds at vet appt on Wednesday (2/21/18) but we have alright started working on her figure.
Health – Very good, senior lab work up was great. Only note was she could use a teeth cleaning.

House trained– Yes she normally goes straight out does her business and wants to come right back in to be with you.

Exercise Requirements– Very little exercise is needed, she has excellent leash manner and enjoys a walk once a day. We do not have a fenced in yard, she really doesn’t wonder far I normally just stand out with her walks around the yard.

Other dogs-Her foster family has two other Goldens and she gets alone fine with them.

Cats-Her surrendering family had a cat and her foster family has a cat, she could care less about him.

Kids-Surrendering family had grandchildren no issues report, foster family only has an adult child. She shows no signs of aggression.

Fears-Surrendering family advised she is afraid of deer and will bark. We have not heard her bark yet.

Sugar’s idea family would like to hang out. Even though she 12 years old she does have a lot of energy. She is the true meaning of a velcro dog, wherever you are she’ll be there by your side. She was given up by her elderly human because she could no longer give Sugar the much-needed exercise and life she deserved. When you meet you will know right away what an amazing girl she is.
