Gentle Giant looking for a lap of his own
Meet Goliath... an absolutely beautiful, sweet-natured and easy-going golden lab.
Goliath was once a puppy, sweet, cuddly and entrancing and at some point must have engaged someone because his manners are impeccable. Unlike many labs, Goliath does not chew things he shouldn't. Nor is he a barker other than an absolutely captivating, delicious almost baying when you come home from a guy who is so happy to see you that he can't contain himself.
He loves everyone - including other dogs, cats and no doubt anything else that breathes. But his true calling is that he ADORES people and wants nothing more than to sit quietly beside you.
Goliath has allergies which caused skin inflamation and loss of hair when first fostered. Since then, his current mum effected an astonishing improvement in his allergies through the introducation of a raw diet. His coat has filled in beautifully and there are only a few minor patches which are also improving daily. A condition of adoption would require potential adopters to continue with the raw diet. For those unfamalier with the raw food diet, it is actually very easy and takes minimal effort as well as being incredibly healthy for the dog. In many ways it also more cost-effective. Dogs see an improvement in energy, their coats shine and many medical issues clear up.
Please, let's work together to find Goliath a home.
