My name is Sapphire. I am a four-year-old, ~65lb heartworm negative English Cream Golden. I was surrendered with my brother and two sisters, so I am used to having other dogs around, but I really like having my human’s attention all to myself.I am a classic Velcro dog.
I have very ladylike manners and I always answer to my name. I am fully housetrained, and I stay off furniture and countertops. Though I am still perfecting my leash walking; sometimes I get distracted and pull the other way. I love to go for walks and my tail wags high the whole time. I want to chase squirrels, bunnies, and cats, but I am never reactive to other dogs or people.
I love to play with squeaky toys, or just bring them to my foster mom and make a big pile next to her desk. However, I don’t like when my foster brother tries to take one, so I bark at him to let him know. I have not shown aggression, but a home with a more submissive fur sibling would be best for me.
When I came to GRRH, I was suffering from fleas and the fur on my backside is currently sparse from constantly biting and grooming myself. I am now treated with flea/heartworm medicine and allergy medicine so I will recover. It feels so nice to not itch all the time!
I seem to get attached to people quickly; I’ve never met a stranger! I haven’t shown any fearfulness or skittishness, even with all these storms we’ve been having. I just want to be near my people getting as much love as possible! Just like my name, I am a precious jewel!
