Meet Millie a Golden Retriever we rescued from a puppy mill. Please read her description thoroughly before putting in an application.
Millie was born Sept 25, 2022. She weighs 50 lbs.. She is a gentle, sweet and loveable soul. Millie is in a foster home. She has gone from being terrified of people to loving everyone here. She will dance around for treats, and play with other dogs all day. However, you will not see the happy side of Millie for a few weeks. She will revert to being afraid and sometimes terrified in new surroundings and with new people. The trusting process will start all over again. She needs a special home.
She will cower down when someone approaches her. She will lay in a corner with her head down at first. She will not come to you. She will need to adjust on her own time
She is very treat motivated, although the first few weeks she would not take any treats from us. She was too scared.
She does not walk on a leash, she will lay down. Once she trusts you, she will walk a bit on a leash, however she still has a long way to go. You may have to carry her outside for a while.
She gets along great with other dogs She needs another friendly, submissive, younger, easy going dog in the home to teach her how to be a dog, this is a must
Your dog must have a good vet record with a history of being on heartworm prevention.
She needs an adult in the family who is home more, no young children under 10 years of age, although she loves all people and kids she is skittish.
She sleeps in a crate in the bedroom at night. She sleeps through the night, without a peep as long as the crate is in the bedroom. If we put the crate in another room, she will bark for a while.
She also has a crate in the family room which is her safe place when the door is open. She will spend much of her time in the crate at first, until she feels safe enough to come out.
Millie will take a lot of time and patience for her to come around. She needs a special home. Thankfully treats are the way to her heart, but not at first.
She is going through her puppy stage now that she is comfortable in her foster home. She will get into things, and needs to be watched for chewing things like pillows.and indoor plants.
