When Libby first came to GRRoW, she was extremely shy and lacked confidence. It took quite some time for her to come out of her shell, but now sheÂs a happy, more confident gal. Her favorite game is to play fetch with a tennis ball. When she sees the ball in my hands, she spins in circles because she is so excited. When I throw the ball, she jets off so fast, she sometimes slips and slides to the ball. If she plays too much, she does have the tendency to wear herself out to the point of being sore for a few days after too much exertion. She has become very comfortable playing with the neighbors Golden Retriever; they have play dates every now and then. Libby is the one that will initiate the play activity, which is wonderful progress from a year ago. She likes being by the other Golden Retriever and will follow him around. Libby also likes to watch TV, which is really cute because she seems so interested in what people are doing on TV. Libby has joint problems, which makes it difficult to go up and down stairs. She is on joint medication, as well as anxiety medication to continue to help her overcome her fears. Since sheÂs progressed to the point of soliciting for pets (something she never used to do), the foster home is going cut back on the anxiety medication and observe her behavior. She used to live with a cat, however hasnÂt been with one for nearly two years, so weÂre not sure how she would react now. Libby likes a moderately quiet and calm atmosphere, therefore, it would be best if she was adopted by a family that does not have small children and younger dogs. Will you be her forever home?
