Hunter Franklyn #3602

Age: 9 years

Gender: Male

Breed: Golden Retriever

Weight: 91 lbs.

Status: Pending Adoption

This loving boy was surrendered to GRRMF after being rescued from poor conditions by a good Samaritan who could not keep him.

Hunter had a rough first day at his foster home, afraid of being approached and refusing to go near the bedroom, but after a while he began to adjust and enjoyed being petted for hours on the couch.  He is good with other people and kids.

Despite his rough beginnings, Hunter demonstrates a dog’s willingness to love again by his fondness of meeting new people.  He has improved at being approached and is very cuddly and affectionate.  You can tell he is thrilled with being loved and appreciated.  He adores his foster mom and follows her everywhere!  His other hobbies include rolling around in the yard and eating.  He is not too fond of his toys and would rather shred toilet paper and other kinds of paper, so make sure you keep any of that stuff out of his reach!  He also does not know what to make of the squeak in squeaky toys, so other types of toys would be better for him until he understands those ‘stuffies” better.  He isn’t a problem around water and has shown no interest in getting into his foster mom’s pool.

Hunter is very eager to please and is working on learning his sit and come commands.  He doesn’t know a lot of other commands but like the good boy he is, he should be easy to train!  He is not very fond of taking walks yet or getting into the car, but he is working on these behaviors with his foster mom.  He had a few accidents in the house after arriving at his foster home, but he has had none since then and is now housebroken.  He has not been in a crate since his foster mom is around most of the time.

Sociable and friendly, Hunter is a sweet lovebug who is looking for a new beginning in a loving home and who will light up your life!  If you are the one for him, get your application in today!
