Nathaniel "Nate" Green (named for a General in the Continental Army in the Revolutionary War) was rescued from a backyard breeder where he spent his entire 4 year old life on a chain. Nate (and William "Bill" Davis also posted) now have the opportunity to see what life is like being a pet and a member of a family. Nate is currently in foster care and is learning about life off the chain. He loves playing in water, playing with other dogs and shredding toys. Because of Nate's background, he is, in effect an 80# puppy. He plays like a puppy and will often "mouth" in play and pull on pant legs. He is a very loving boy and wants to get in his foster mom's lap. He has been studying up on his manners and is responsive to positive correction. Nate will need humans that are willing to commit to his training and development as a pet. Nate is a very happy dog and he wants to please, he just isn't sure what that is at this point. He will need a home where someone is home more often than not to provide him training and routine as well as lots of love for which he craves. Nate will need work learning leash walking, housetraining, riding in the car and basic obedience. He is a blank slate---not a clean one because he is 4 years old, but he hasn't had a lot of positive treatment by humans thus far.
Nate is a tall, blonde, handsome golden. Because of his size, he will need a home with no children under 12. He will also need a home without cats or other small creatures. Adopting Nate will provide his lucky humans the opportunity to truly bond and change a dog's life for the better.
