Blake is a shy and sensitive pup who needs a calm home environment as he is shy.  Once he is comfy, he is a funny and playful guy!  He needs to have another playful doggy buddy in the home.  Blake will benefit from having a social friend to bring him out of his shell.  Blake is not a golden retriever (he is much, much smaller).  He likely is a mix of many, many breeds but turned out winning the cute guy lottery!

Blake is 99% house trained and is great in his crate overnight and when you leave.  When tired after a  day of play, he LOVES to climb on the back of the sofa, like a cat, and nap behind your head.  He certainly makes for a perfect head rest!  It is a darn good thing he is cute because he can be cutely mischievous sometimes! While he is not the kind of pup that likes too much affection, he does find ways to ensure you know he loves you, like how happy he is when you come home.
