Have ball, ready for action! That’s our sweet Simon Andy, a two-year old creamy white fur-boy. Simon LOVES his ball and likes to carry it everywhere. He’s still a puppy, though, so hasn’t quite mastered the art of bringing it to you. He’ll drop the ball just out of your reach, then stare at you wondering why you’re not throwing it for him. Simon’s a bright boy – maybe he’s just figured out how to make the humans do the work!
Simon is a confident young pup and very friendly. He likes to know where his foster mom is, but isn’t clingy. Simon is completely house-broken and can be trusted with the run of the house when home alone. He has been known to counter surf if tasty things are left out, so needs a home that’ll keep it neat and tidy.
Simon prefers to be the only pet, so needs a family with no other dogs, cats or other animals. We haven’t observed him with children, but were told he was good with them in his previous home. He knows the “Sit” command and is working on learning more. A fenced yard will be required for this active guy.
Typical of a retriever, Simon explores things with his mouth. He isn’t destructive, but his foster mom keeps a close eye on him to pull things out of his mouth that he shouldn’t be eating! He likes to eat and his handsome white fluff hides the few extra pounds he needs to shed. With lots of running and games of fetch, he’ll have that done in no time.
Simon’s a happy pup and loves belly rubs. His favorite toy is… you guessed it, his BALL! He plays a game where he jumps on the couch with it, and after a few seconds pushes it off. He then stares at his ball longingly, like he wasn’t the one that just pushed it off. Finally, he’ll jump down and get his ball and start the whole routine over. What a cutie! Simon is a little mouthy and when he gets excited: if he doesn’t have his ball, he’ll look for something else to put in his mouth. This could be another toy, towel, or human! He’s gentle, though, and keeps his mouth soft – just enough to hold on without hurting.
Simon needs a forever family with the time and energy to help him blossom from playful puppy to become his best. Could that be you?
