Misty (Mist) GH-1059


Misty Sky (Mist) was born 7/27/2015. He is a Velcro golden for sure. Mist is reliable in the house for up to 6 hours on his own. That is the longest that his give-up owner was away from home.

At first he was afraid to go in a crate, but will now go in willingly. He does try to get on the furniture because he was allowed on the furniture at his home, but by just saying no or get down, he listens very well.

Mist has always lived with another dog and does well with the dogs at his foster home. He is afraid of a lot of things and does not have a lot of confidence so another dog in the home would be best for him. I believe he is a follower not a leader. His foster mom has noticed that if something in the yard scares him he gets that “deer in the headlight look” and you have to coax him to move.

On some outings with his foster mom he was a little afraid, but wagged his tail at everyone and pulled on the leash to greet them so his leash manners could use some work.

He has been around adults his whole life so I think he would do well in a home with older children.  Since he can startle easily, we do not recommend a home with young children.  Mist does know basic commands, sit, stay, lay down, come and seems to be very reliable with those.

Otherwise, Mist is your typical 2 year old bundle of energy, so he will need lots of exercise to keep him out of trouble. So if you are a very active family who has a lot of love and time to give this boy and you are an approved adopter with GoldHeart, you can contact his foster family at president@goldheart.org Mist is being fostered in the Harrisburg, PA area.

If you are not yet approved by Goldheart, and are in our SERVICE AREA, please complete an adoption application at https://goldheart.org/adopting-a-golden/adoption-application/. There is a $30 non-refundable application fee that must be received before the approval process starts. The approval process can take several weeks since we rely on an all-volunteer support network to process your application, conduct the home visit, and check references. If approved, you can then inquire about Misty Sky (Mist) if still available, and you can also inquire about any other available dog that is looking for a forever home. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
