Remy, Chloe and their new brother

Good afternoon everyone. I'd just like to announce that as of yesterday, our fur family has grown by one. We are again back up to 3 golden retrievers. Due to very unfortunate circumstances this beautiful sweet boy needed a new home. We met with the owners and the dog yesterday (without my dogs) and we were very comfortable agreeing to take him.

I obviously wondered how our two females - Remy (12 yrs old) and Chloe (soon to be 6 yrs old), would accept another dog, especially a male, as I've always had just females. Everything went great, so he's definitely a keeper and staying with us. We will be renaming him as hubby and rest of family don't like his current name. I'm not averse to it but gotta make everyone happy, especially hubby, since he was happy with two dogs.

He is 19 months old and unneutered. Neuter will be done soon per the previous owners request.

He came home Sunday and we are at Tuesday. So far, so good. He's acclimating pretty well. He did a lot of pacing Sunday nite even though he had a great time running the yard with my 6 yr golden. He gets crated at times during the day when he gets overly wound up, and of course, he gets crated at night. He does very well.

I always thought my girl Chloe was non-stop action but she does have an off switch. This boy is 100% energy and he's very strong. His manners need work. He'll sit and down but "stay" goes in one ear and out the other. Not too bad on the leash, but we are working on leash manners.

I'm still waiting on vaccine history as well as microchip information from previous owners.

I'm definitely used to females as opposed to males. He is a needy, clingy boy but I don't mind- so are my two females.

So far, he's a keeper. Who am I kidding? lol He is a definite keeper.

It usually takes a dog a little while to get comfortable and settled in to new surroundings, new people and new dogs. Some adjust right away while others it may take time, each dog is different. He will probably become less needy as he becomes more comfortable.

My first golden was a male, my current one is too. I had a golden girl in between them. I always wanted a girl and was finally able to adopt one. She was an absolute sweetheart, but these boys are just something else..........

He sure is handsome. I wish we could have a situation like this-you don't have do deal with all the puppy crazies-just the crazier teenage stuff! Oh, and congratulations!

I've always had females and absolutely love them. This is my first male golden. All of my friends were stunned that I got a boy. My friends keep telling me that I will love the boy, which I do.

It's been quite a while since I had an actual puppy. My last young pup would be Remy who just turned 12. We got Chloe at 6-1/2 months from a horrible situation.

This pup is a definite crazy teenager but I'm a good judge of dogs and know he'll end up perfect, he's already partly there!

It's been a month since "Teddy" became ours. He's an absolute joy. He fit in so well with my two girls. I just need to be sure my older girl, Remy, doesn't get knocked over during Chloe and Teddy play sessions.

Here they are wishing everyone a happy and safe July 4th.
