Goliath is housetrained. He walks nicely on the leash and comes when he is called. We have not tested him off leash or with cats. He has a low prey drive, but he has started playing and romping since the excess weight has come off. He was not overly excited about swimming, but he did not resist going into the water. He is not food or toy aggressive.
Though Goliath is Bruno's son, these two dogs couldn't be any more different from each other, except for their sweet natures and good manners. They came into rescue together, but both dogs would do well in separate homes.
Goliath has some allergies, but he is on an antihistamine which is helping him. Goliath will need a high quality food to keep him in tip-top condition. All in all, he is healthy, happy, and ready for his Forever Home. So if you think that home might be yours, please contact Goliath's case managers at the e-mail address below.
Please note that an approved adoption application is the first step in a more thorough interview process that is designed to match each dog to exactly the right family, and that the final decision rests with the dog's case manager.
Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Goliath.
