Hi Kate.

My name is Katy and I adopted an older Golden Retriever last night. He hasn't went to the bathroom at all since we got him. He just want to lay around or sit right next to us. When we take him out side he walks around and sniffs a little bit but doesn't seem to have any interest in going to the bathroom. He is drinking and eating. He seems a little sad but is wagging his tail and acts excited to see us. He hasn't been whining or anything.

I was wondering if you could let me know how your situation turned out.

Rescue dogs need a ton of time to settle in. Some take years to become fully acclimated to there new forever home. Be patient. If he doesn't go in a day I would get him to your vet. He should go to your vet anyway, it's just part of the process and verifying a new dogs health. Understand your dog is freaking out a little bit on the inside being in a new place. Rescue dogs sometimes have difficult past lives so that needs to be taken into consideration also. Good luck and "Thank you" for rescuing a dog. It is very noble of you.
