On CL: Golden needs re-homing (Pittsburgh, PA)

Here is a link to a Craigslist ad I just came across:

Purebred Golden Retriever



I am looking up some rescue organizations that are close, and will email/call them. I wanted to post it here too, in case anyone is interested.

And in case the ad goes MIA, I've attached a screenshot image of the ad.

Also, I'm not completely certain that this is the proper forum category, but it seemed like the best fit.

I called and left a message and then sent an email to WAGS, which is located in Pittsburgh.

WAGS: Golden Retriever Rescue

Perhaps I should call/email other rescue organizations as well? Or would they not be interested because it might be out of their range?

Oh my goodness, poor thing. If only it was one year from now. I would be happy to try to help out in any way I can with transport or something since I am in Pittsburgh.

I actually thought of you instantly when I saw the ad!

I will keep you posted as to what I hear back. I also just sent a text to the person who posted the ad. I'm hopeful the dog is still with her/him, so that a rescue organization could come in.

And I also contacted GRIN (Golden Retrievers in Need Rescue Service, Inc (G.R.I.N.)) in Ohio, because they are reasonably close and seem to be way more active than WAGS.

I have a very sweet purebred Golden Retriever that is in need of a new home! I just started a new job and I have no time for him and he deserves much better then sitting in the house for 12 hours! He is going to be 5 this September, no health problems. Full of energy and is the typical golden...he LOVES everyone that he meets. He is neutered, absolutely house broken and is loose in my house all day and night. He is not destructive in anyway, loves to play catch and to swim. He will swim in you pool, in the river, in the creek...his absolute favorite thing! He gets along great with other dogs. I have had him since he was 8 weeks old and it breaks my heart to let him go but he deserves to be with someone who can give him all the love and attention that he should be getting. I have pictures of him and if you are interested please contact me and I will send them to you. I am asking for a very small re-homing fee of $50.00. Any other questions please contact me by email or you can text/call me at 724-5-zero-6-0-zero-18. You may have a better chance getting a hold of me by text or email but I will do my best to answer calls!

The person who posted the ad responded to my text inquiry, and said he is still with her. I've not heard back from either rescue organization yet, but I realize it hasn't been too much time.

I just hope the person doesn't sell him to the first random person to offer $50...

Is anyone on this forum interested? I'm sure we could work out a transport or something! Sounds like a great dog.
