Meet the handsome Carter James!
This beautiful boy is a 4 year old Golden Retriever mix who came to Dallas Animal Services as a stray. From his condition and appearance, it appears he was a street dog or neglected for quite a while, but he definitely showed signs of being owned previously. He has an amazing temperament and has really flourished in his foster home! His fur is now shiny and healthy, and he has put on some much-needed weight!
CJ gets along great with his 3 canine foster siblings and loves being around people. He is working on his leash training and manners, but with the help of treats he is highly motivated! You will see a whole other side to his usual laid-back demeanor. He gets excited for treat time, and will show off his small but growing list of basic commands. He is already learning sit, stay, and shake!
CJ doesn't seem to be a highly active dog, so he would do well in a decent sized apartment if that happens to be the right family for him. He also wouldn’t mind a house with a yard either! While he gets along well with other dogs, he would be equally happy being the only dog of the house (as long as he got plenty of love…and treats!)
CJ likes being petted and shown love. Even when he is resting in his dog bed, he still likes to have his people within view. He’s also that dog that will probably follow you from room to room. He has a heart of gold, and is ready to make a fantastic companion in a new, nourishing furever home!
