Hello, I'm 15 and got my first golden puppy a few months ago. Her name is Gracie. I did have a shelter dog quite a few years ago and we think she was a golden/chow mix, she was a great dog and loved women and children but we had to find a new family for her because she was aggresive to men in the neighborhood (we believe she was formerly abused by a man). The pup is around 4 or 5 months old now and she can be quite a handful. I would post pictures but I'm on my iPod now so I'll do that later. By the way potty training was amazingly easy, I've taught her to go on command, but I'm still having trouble with the biting I've tried just about everything but she's still a little yellow Tasmanian devil.
