Meet Lucky This boy is one lucky pup having been rescued from a high kill shelter where he was slated to be euthanized. To celebrate his saved life, we named him Lucky. He is an amazing dog. He has brought us nothing but joy and happiness since coming to the shelter. He's as perfect as perfect can be. Lucky is a gorgeous golden retriever/shepherd mix. He has beautiful hazel colored eyes that will melt your heart. His physique and coat are stunning. Lucky receives a lot of compliments because he is so striking in appearance. This combined, with his incredible personality, and Lucky is not to be matched. He's about five years young, incredibly athletic and so smart. Lucky has learned several commands easily and training him is fun. Lucky is house-trained. He has wonderful house manners and is easy to have around. His manners extend to walking him as well. He LOVES going for walks and is an easy stroll, no pulling or straining, just a casual walk in the park. Lucky LOVES nothing more than to snuggle with his people. He lives for belly rubs and soaks up all the attention he can get. He's very affectionate and such a joy to be around. Lucky does miss his people when they leave him. He struggles when alone, but once he learns that he's not being abandoned, he'll be okay. Lucky is not treat motivated, but he loves his chicken bits and he LOVES chewing on his bones. So fun!!! Unlike most retrievers, Lucky doesn't like getting his paws wet and is not what we'd describe as a water dog. LOL! He does well with dogs closer in size to him, but not small dogs, they tend to antagonize him. He loves to play and another dog might be a perfect companion for Lucky. Having a yard where he can run and romp will be important, and he'd thrive with an active person or family. Lucky loves a comfy couch and snuggle time. If you are looking for an incredible companion, Lucky may be just what you're looking for. He will make for a wonderful companion.
