Meet Eddie! He appears to be a mix of Golden Retriever and Irish Wolfhound and was estimated to be around 5-6 years of age. Eddie has been the most perfect house guest since he arrived a few weeks ago and has really fit right in with the other human and furry family members.
Eddie gets along well with dogs of all sizes and ages. He enjoys playing with stuffed toys and tennis balls and loves to chew on his compressed pork skin bones! He is a very laid back and submissive guy, so he does not have any aggression when it comes to food or toys. He is curious about cats and barks when he sees them, but has never tried to hurt the cat.
Eddie will really impress you with his manners and intelligence … he knows how to sit, shake, lay down and stay. Someone in his past has trained him to stay off of the furniture, so he does not jump on couches or beds … but he does enjoy sleeping on a dog bed or laying on the carpet or rug next to your bed at night.
Eddie received a clean bill of health at the vet and was heartworm negative, but he does have small tumors on his eye, chest and near the stomach. These develop pretty commonly in dogs as they get older and can be easily removed. He also seems to have a little discomfort in his hips, but has no problem going for a mile long walk.
Eddie would be perfect for almost any family, as he is such a well behaved, gentle giant. I feel that he would be good for any age, since he is very calm and does not jump up on anyone. He fits right in with the pack, so he could easily befriend your current dogs. He is low energy, so he would be happy with a small or large house, as he enjoys lounging around with the family. Eddie is just looking for a loving family that will provide him with lots of love and belly scratches!
