Mylee GH-1115


Meet Mylee

This gorgeous golden girl has been with GoldHeart and our (her foster) family for about three months. No one can believe her age; she gets around very well and has no problem with stairs. Mylee will turn a very young 13 in September 2019. She is so beautiful with a very nice coat with great looking feathers.  She was underweight but has put on some weight as she has a great appetite. She is still frisky and tries to play a little with her foster sister and brother (check her out in action in these pictures). They all get along great!

Mylee is now clear of all her problems which included an UTI, ear infection and skin infection.  She is done with all her medications except a daily Apoquel for her skin etching. She has a great appetite, tries to play with her foster siblings and likes to run in the yard with them.

Gender: F, Spayed.

Age: A very young almost 13 years old, September 2006 is her DOB.

Weight: 64 lbs.

Health: Good. Mylee is Heartworm negative and is UTD on vaccines and monthly preventatives. She was successfully treated for a UTI and ear infection as well as chronic skin infections.  She did test positive for Lyme but the vet says that this is a chronic condition but is not an active Lyme infection.

Personality: Mylee is a sweet girl, who quickly comes for head and ear rubs. She fit in with her foster home, her foster people and foster sister and brother.  She will let you touch her anywhere and will hold still to be brushed or bathed. She is very much a velcro golden and will follow you from room to room.  When you sit down she will find a good spot near you and lay down to nap.

Favorite Toys/Games: At 13 years old, Mylee is not too interested in playing but will occasionally initiate play with her foster brother.

Interaction with other dogs: Mylee gets along with both her foster siblings with no signs of any aggression. She accepted her foster sister Krystal as the household alpha with no problem,

Interaction with cats: Unknown. As far as we know there were no where she came from.

Interaction with children: Mylee has been with several children and accepts any attention they give her. Only issue is that she never wants the petting to stop.

Behavior in Car: Rides well in the car – very calm, never has gotten car sick. She jumps up into the van easily and likes to get on the bed and just lay there looking out the window

People Interactions – home requirements:. Mylee is used to a home with a flexible schedule, and is fine with friends, family, and other visitors. She used to people being home more often than not, and she and her fur siblings rarely are alone for more than 4 hours w/o a potty – exercise break..She has several beds, and her room is also our master bedroom and even though she does not need to sleep there. Mylee most likely would be happy to have run of the house finding a favorite place to sleep (and no, she does not jump up on the bed or any of the furniture).She enjoys a cool wood floor or a comfy dog bed too. Mylee’s current home has 3 levels and a few stairs out to the yard. She loves to go with her foster dad into the basement (his man cave) which has 13 stairs and watch TV with him.

Housetrained? Mylee is completely reliable in her foster home. She generally will not ask to go out (she may go by the door that goes to the yard though), and this in part is due to the frequent potty and play breaks she gets. First potty call is around 8:30-9:00 AM and last potty call is around 1:30 AM, with many outside breaks in-between, she has made it 6 hours no problem during day, and 8 hours overnight).  Her foster parents believe she would be fine with another schedule as long as she has frequent outside breaks during the day.

Training, Food and Treats: Mylee is medium-high food motivated. She will take food and treats gently (soft mouth) and will wait her turn when her siblings are nearby for a treat. She eats fast, (and separately from her fur siblings). She does not resource guard her food bowl (you can put your hand in, pull up while eating) or counter-surf (of note — all trash cans are not dog accessible in our home). Myles knows sit, down/rollover, wait, and come/here – most of the time. She is smart and responsive to her humans.

Exercise Requirements: On a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being very energetic and with the highest exercise requirements, Mylee is a 1-2, a perfect match for most calm homes. Mylee’s current exercise routine includes yard running and ball play at least 4-6 times a day. Mylee walks easily on a leash.

Fence requirements: Mylee will do best in a home with a physical fenced yard — it doesn’t have to be huge, just large enough for some ball play. Her current backyard includes a 4 ft fence and is approximately 80 x 110 feet.
