Sweet, happy-go-lucky, ball -loving, water-loving, outgoing social butterfly who never meets a stranger...that's me, Amble! I'll charm my way right into your heart and bring you love and laughter. I'm a 2 year old Golden Retriever. My DOB is 5-31-15. I weigh 68 pounds and I'm one stunningly handsome pup that wants to be your best friend and snuggle buddy!

I came to AGN because my owner was moving. I'm thriving in my foster home and now ready to find my true forever family. Could it be you?

Personality Traits: Incredibly sweet and loving, velcro shadow, energetic outside and settles down inside, lap dog, friendly with everyone, happy and fun; great temperament for therapy work to go into Children's Hospitals, etc. to bring comfort and joy after training and certification

Status with People: Loves all people and adores children; great with children and used to living with young children

Status with Dogs: Great with other dogs and loves to play and wrestle; currently has two furry foster siblings; furry foster brother is best buddy

Status with Cats: Good with cats according to previous owner

Favorite Toys: LOVES playing fetch with tennis balls and carries them around everywhere; loves stuffy toys, but needs "Go Dog" brand or "Huggle Hound" because can destroy stuffy toys for fun; shares toys well with other dogs

Energy Level: Moderate energy overall; active and energetic outside with my furry foster siblings and human siblings, but settle down for snuggles on the couch inside

House Trained: Yes; sits at back door to go out; will whine and then bark if you are not paying attention

Crate Trained: Yes; only in crate when no one home which is minimal time as foster parents work from home; will bark at first and then settle down quickly; free roam otherwise; sleep on couch or orthopedic dog bed

House Manners: Great house manners; has free roam and not destructive (except for the murdering of stuffy toys occasionally); will stand up on counters to see what you're doing, but doesn't counter surf

Storm Phobia: Owner stated mild storm phobia with intense storms, but none seen in foster home

Leash Manners: Young and strong so needs continued positive leash work; walks best on Walk Your Dog With Love harness which decreases pulling while being comfortable

Exercise: Older pup with energy so must get significant daily exercise; enjoys walking, hiking and loves to swim and play in the creek; runs and plays with furry foster siblings

Car Rides: Great in the car and loves to go

Basic Commands: Sit, Down (Lie Down), Bed (Directing to dog bed), Shake, High Five

Things I need in my forever home:
-Active family that likes to exercise daily by taking lots of walks, hikes, swimming and fun outdoor adventures
-Someone who doesn't work, works from home or works part time as I'm used to my family being home with me and my furry siblings; I thrive in this environment because I'm young and active and need someone with the time to commit to my exercise and training
-Positive reinforcement obedience training classes would be beneficial - This will help us bond and build our relationship and it so much fun
-Children would be great to play with as I've always lived with them - I love kids!
-I'd love and prefer a young dog that would play with me as I love to play with other dogs
-I'd be fine as an only dog if I had doggy friends to play with on regular basis - I'd enjoy the dog park
-Fence should be at least 5 feet as I'm a tall Golden Retriever

I'm the ultimate family dog! So, if you're looking for a LOVE BUG of an older puppy who has an amazing temperament and lots of love to share, look no further. The pitter patter of my paws will follow you everywhere so that you'll never be lonely as we take on life's adventures together. I'm ready to be your best friend and lifelong companion if you have endless tennis balls for me to fetch and carry. I'm one awesome Golden who's ready for fun!

Luv, Amble
