Here is my new boy Draco, I know I hate the name. Think it was picked because it was halloween week. But I have been calling him Drake. Poor guy has guardia, yeast and bacterial infections and just got neutered. Very tall and has the darkest fur I have ever seen on a golden. I thought my boy was red but he is way darker. Gets along with other dogs and doesnt mind the cats. Could use an obedience class and will recommend it to his new family. Little rambuncious for small children. He will make someone a great friend. His info is being put up on the website tonight.

The last picture is of him and Pawley laying facing each other. Pawley has his back to the camera.

Wow! His coat is almost mahogany. He looks like he may come from field lines. He's gorgeous!

He was a owner surrender. Around 3 years old and dominate. We are going to see how he does tomorrow but he may have to go to another home. When the boys start playing he gets very unsettled and starts growling and barking. And then starts lunging at them. It is not playing either. But we will see how he does one more day to see if he settles down and it is being nervous in a new environment.

Drake is awesome. Now that's a 'red dog'! Hope he's adopted soon, I can see you adding to the family.

Carol, I hope that handsome boy settles in tomorrow, but sometimes a pup just misunderstands playing and has to be the fun police (or the local hoodlum). It shouldn't take too long for Drake to find his forever home with those good looks!

Drake is just gorgeous! His coat color reminds me so much of my Brody's coat! How I Love those red heads! :smooch: I am sure he will find a new home real soon. I really hope he settles down tomorrow, so he is able to spend his time with you till that time comes.:)

Unfortunately he is going to be moved to another foster home. :( I just got done breaking up two fights with three of the dogs and trying to keep Daisy out of it. If you had a camera on me, it might have been funny if it wasnt so scary. As this was going on, my three cats were sitting on the counter watching it. When I got it settled, I looked over at them and it was like they were laughing at me. :p: Guess they forgot their big squabble they got in earlier this year, where they had to be seperated.

He is a great dog but very dominate and when I took them outside to go to the bathroom, he jumped up towards me, Bama didnt like it and growled. Then Draco growled and then they just went at it. And then Pawley jumped in. I had Draco by the collar and was trying to pull him back but he was lunging and Bama kept attacking.:eek: Luckily I was able to get them back into the house and just went it settled down they started back up again. Luckily no blood was drawn but there was alot of fur and slobber flying. I am the only one with a scratch wound luckily. So I had to put the Pawley and Bama in the bedroom to settle them down. And I will sleep on the couch with Draco.
Draco needs a quiet place to recuperate after his surgery and if he stays here he might bust his stitches or get hurt.

OH AND WHERE WAS HUBBY DURING ALL THIS.......HE WAS ASLEEP. :--sleep: I DONT KNOW HOW HE COULD SLEEP THRU 4 DOGS BARKING, GROWLING AND SNARLING AND ME SCREAMING AT THEM TO STOP. JUST WAIT TILL TOMORROW MORNING. :--evil:

Oh, I'm sorry to hear about his anxieties getting in the way...esp. while he's recuperating. But your story made me laugh, b/c I can picture the cats and what they were thinking! :) Glad everyone's OK. Maybe Drake will need to be an only child in his new home? Still, he's so pretty, and if someone gives him patience I bet he'll reward them!

Sometimes that happens. Hopefully Drake can go to a no dog at the moment or one old dog home. : )

Hope your pups are all OK!

Those husbands: they can sleep through anything.
