Gentle, loving, sweetheart whose reserved elegance and charm will bring happiness to your life! Hi, I'm Tori. I'm an approximately 6 year old stunning Golden mix. I weigh 68 pounds and every pound of me is pure love that wants to be your ultimate companion.

I was surrendered to AGN when my "mom" had to be put into a nursing home. Myself and my furry companions were so heartbroken and confused. But now, I'm cherishing love and kindness in my foster home and dreaming of the day that I can call a family my own.

Personality Traits: : I'm just as sweet and kind as can be. A bit reserved with new things. Gentle, calm, low maintenance and happy. Friendly with everyone and enjoy the simple things in life. Easy going, perfect companion to be by your side and cherish life together. I have one speed....slow and leisurely wherever I go.

Status with People: I'm gentle and friendly with all people and love to be with my humans.

Status with Dogs: Good with other dogs of all genders and sizes. Have multiple furry foster siblings and get along with all of them. Respectful of other dogs and neutral in temperament

Status with Cats: Unknown

Favorite Toys: : I haven't quite figured out toys, but I'm interested and learning. I put my mouth on them in the toy box so maybe you can help me move to the next step. And in the meantime, if you can spare a belly rub, I'd be grateful!

Energy Level:Low, easy going and laid back overall. Quite mellow and calm inside and move at a leisurely and peaceful pace outside. People rush around too much in life so I'm setting a new trend :-) Relaxed and leisurely is the way to go!

House Trained: Yes

Crate Trained:I don't need a crate as I'm perfect in the house with free roam.

House Manners:Perfect lady with excellent house manners; doesn't bother a thing

Storm Phobia: None witnessed

Leash Manners: : I'm a bit hesitant on my leash and gaining confidence, but do best on leash with the Walk Your Dog With Love harness. The leash seemed to be new to me when coming to AGN so I'm making great progress. Just be kind and easy with me as I get fearful if you pull on me. Patience and encouragement is what I thrive on!

Exercise:Love my daily walks and I'm the hit of the neighborhood because everyone loves me so much. I also enjoy time in the backyard with my furry foster siblings and foster family.

Car Rides:Good and calm in the car. Getting in is a bit scary so I hesitate, but positive reinforcement encourages me to get in on the second try.

Basic Commands:Sit and Come

Things I need in my forever home:
-Calm, laid back household to match my personality
-Someone that wants a gentle best friend...the ultimate companion to love on, read a book with on the patio on a beautiful day and take leisurely strolls with
-I'd do best in a home where you're not gone long hours; I thrive on human interaction and cherish affection
-I would be great with another nice, calm dog - I'm great with all sizes, genders and ages
-I would be fine as an only dog if you are home more often than not - I've always been with two other dogs and my human for my entire life
-I am gentle with children and good with them when I encounter them on my walks, but I do not have them in my foster home; I would be fine with older children who are dog experienced and gentle with me
-Someone who is patient and kind who will understand that I'm learning new things in life and just need lots of positive encouragement and love

So if you are looking for a sweet, loving, gentle, calm, laid back Golden girl to enjoy life with, I'm your perfect companion! I'm one of those special dogs that settles into your life like I've always been a part of it and you can't imagine life without me. My precious, gentle spirit will bless your life. I have a heart full of love to share with you if you have lots of kindness and time to share with me! Let's make a lifetime of memories together!

Luv, Tori
