This guy is one of three Golden Poos who came in from an Ontario puppy miller. As is typical of most puppy mill rescues, he and his two brothers are quite anxious, unhousebroken and undersocialized with dogs and people.
All three are very sweet dogs with varying degrees of shyness. They are much braver when kept together as a group but their interdependence upon each other might not be such a good thing as they grow older. When I spent time with them, it took about 10 minutes of quiet sitting with them before the bravest of the three interacted with me and it was in a playful manner. The other two eventually followed suit. I think they'll be fine as long as they get a lot of daily interaction with people and dogs and everything else out there.
For adoption information on these Golden Poos and other dogs (and cats and other animals), please visit Toronto Animal Services.
