Internets, meet Baron. He’s a three month old golden retriever, and is our latest foster puppy.
Baron is a super sweet, super chill boy. Unfortunately for him, he was pretty stressed when he got to our house last week, and then just as he was recovering I took him to the fundraiser event which stressed him out as well. But, he’s on the upswing now and I can see little peeks of the dog he can be, when he races around the yard with Annie.
Speaking of Annie, she did not want anything to do with him the first few days. That job fell to Lark, who guided him outside, showed him how to do steps, and stood near him when he needed a pal. It was sweet to watch her in this role, she definitely is one to give love and comfort to other dogs. I’m super happy that Annie and Baron became friends though, since he loves to chase and play with her! Gotta get that puppy energy out!
I know it seems crazy to take in yet another dog and add to the chaos of our house, but if not me, then who? There are so many dogs out there that are stuck in puppy mills, cranking out puppies in deplorable conditions. Someone has to rescue them. Someone has to foster them. I get it, four dogs is kind of crazy. Especially a puppy who gets up in the middle of the night. But Baron is going to make a family incredibly happy, and knowing that ending is out there for him makes it all worth it. And honestly, you can’t spend more than five minutes with this guy without being completely charmed by him.
