Stomper & his sister, Rinnie, are like two Oreos without the white stuffing. While Rinnie’s face is thinner and more border collie looking, Stomper shows more of the Golden Retriever in his face, more squared and a bit larger than Rinnie’s. Both pups are biddable and loving.
Stomper is quiet in his crate all night and, unlike his sister, Rinnie, is content to be let out when his human sees fit. He simply waits patiently for you.
Stomper would best be described as “Ferdinand the Bull”. When his foster siblings attempt to engage him in a full scale romp, he will start to chase and then may get distracted by a flower, rock, stick or toy. His game is wrestling more than full out running. He may bark when he is trying to play but neither pup is a big barker.
Although Stomper uses his front paws to get your attention, he is a gentle giant, sweet and cuddly. Stomper’s personality tends to be a bit more chill and laid back. Stomper has decent recall but doesn’t seem to be in a big hurry no matter what.
Indoors they enjoy wrestling and playing tug with their foster siblings.
They have learned to sit before they are permitted to come out of their crate and to sit before treats are dispensed. They know what ‘crate’ means and willingly go in – especially if a treat is involved. They are almost completely housebroken – only an accident once in a while. They know the words hungry and treat responding accordingly.
