My last rescue was Copper and boy he wasw similar to Lochlan, but even in a worse situation - a kill shelter and found with a collar embedded in his neck.

Copper was approximately 8 years old, unaltered and yep - male dog aggressive. Needless to say, he was also untrained and a handful since he had most likely been seldom taken off his chain.

He turned into a love who never met a stranger and let his many, many vets do anything they needed to him and that was a lot. A dog with challenges can be turned around and I sure hope your boy finds the perfect home to get him where he should be.

I just want to say how lucky Lochlan is to have you looking our for his best interests. I have had no experience with a rescue group but from what others post on here it is a great safe option if golden owners need to go the route of rehoming. I have no doubt Lochlan will end up in a good situation, be it through his breeder or through the rescue, because he has you advocating for him. Carol

Let me just say how wonderful it is you are helping Lochlann and you are doing everything the RIGHT way. The breeder should have first choice to take him back and if they are not interested, the breed specific rescues are wonderful about finding just the right home for dogs in their care.
Either way he will have a great rehome.

I think it is wonderful you are trying to find Lochlan a wonderful home.
I am praying that you do call the rescue to find him a home on Monday-I believe they will find him the best and safest home!! Rescues check references on adopters and try to match the person with the dog!

Great news. The Golden Rescue people are AWESOME. They will have a great home for him for sure. Not sure if this is what you want, but you could always offer to be the foster until they find a home for him. Trust me when I say there are always a lot of people wanting dogs from the rescue - it won't take long for him to find a forever home.

You should be commended for stepping into the breach and taking over - Lochlan is lucky to have you and hopefully the whole saga will end positively for you all.

Best of luck finding a new home for him.

Thanks you so much for working so hard in Lochlan's best interests. I am glad the rescue got back to you and that you have a safe and sound plan B for him if his breeder does step up to the plate.

My rescue golden sounds a lot like Lochlan - dog-aggressive, untrained, un-neutered. He was bounced around a lot until he was taken into rescue. The rescue group kept him for 6 months working with him. They carefully screened multiple potential adopters and turned down all of them until they found my family and decided that we would be the best fit for the dog.

It's been a lot of work, both for the rescue group and my family, but Chumlee has definitely found his forever home and is turning into a great dog.

Bless you for helping Lochlan (I love his name!)
