I have 4 of them roaming inside my house.....I`ve never really considered myself needy or odd. I just love having my dogs with me!!!

But you are entitled to your opinion. I wish you luck with Bentley.

and I feel bad for Bentley, to go from one neglected home to imprisoned in the next where he's considered an 80lb problem, perhaps third times a charm for this boy.

That's my opinion.
Your comments are mean spirited, and show a complete lack of understanding of what a Golden Retriever is all about. Goldens need human companionship. Also, Goldens provide companionship to humans.

Furthermore, your comments are a complete contradiction from your initial post. You stated that your wife would not allow the dog in the house, and that your daughter was allergic. Apparently, that was untrue. You do not want your Golden in the house, and instead will relegate him to the yard, garage and kennel.

I suggest you stay away from this forum, because I doubt anyone here will have any sympathy for you, or want to suggest ways for you to exile your dog.

I encourage you to contact your local Golden Retriever Rescue, so they can find a loving home for your Golden Retriever. Your comments describe a person not fit to own a Golden, or probably any other dog.

Er... why were you initially saying it was your wife who didn't want the dog in the house? To me this strongly indicates you feel quite the same way and possibly were hiding behind your wife and son.

I'm otherwise speechless and saddened that a somebody who has possession of a young golden retriever would view normal dog ownership as nasty and odd.

We are down to two big hairy dogs wandering around the house... after losing the oldest one a couple years ago. And because we enjoyed being that nasty and odd to have THREE big hairy dogs wandering around the house being family members, we will very soon add another golden. One thing I take pride in especially considering the collie (you don't know how easy the golden coat is until you own a rough collie), is the fact that we adopted this dog... and he went from being a dog who was crated a majority of his young life and limited in how much living space he had in the home... and he is now that pampered family member who sleeps at the foot of my parents' bed or follows my mom around during the day and performs his job as "guardian" for my niece when he goes home at night. If that's odd - I hope every other dog owner is equally as odd. The dogs deserve good useful and loving lives like that.

And by the way, our Golden is 150 pounds, 29 inches tall, and has a very thick coat. He loves to retrieve and swim. He lives inside the house with no problems. We would not have it any other way.

And I'm sorry you think of your dog as an "80 lb problem".

I'm done here...
Interesting..and do you see any other signs of 'help with my issue' from people here?
Nope, just a couple of posts with kind words of encouragement. Other than that, it's just been about me not having him in my home. ridiculous.

I had thought about just not saying anything, but it seems some wanted to throw the gloves off and have it out, so bring it.
My sweet and loving wife of 30 years and my two kids come FIRST. Not a dog.
I don't know any of you at all. I have no idea if your needy/and or nasty.
But, you don't know me either and I was being told to rehome this dog again and some would doubt he'd have a good life with me, etc because I did not aspire to YOUR standards.
I congratulate those of you who have mastered the art of having a large dog indoors. But, I'm not less of a dog owner for not having my dog indoor with me.

I like dogs,Big dogs,Little dogs,Fat dogs,Doggy dogs,
Old dogs,Puppy dogs,I like dogs,A dog that is barking over the hill,A dog that is dreaming very still
A dog that is running wherever he will.
I like dogs.

Since Bentley has been an outdoor dog, you'll need to make sure he's tested for heartworms prior to pursuing neutering.

I will remove myself from here.
YOU started it and when I post MY thoughts...oh my. You all fire up against me.
I love this dog and have no intentions of either moving him into my bedroom or rehoming him.
Yes, my wife and daughter have allergies and she has said NO to this dog in the house.
My opinions are mine in addition to the physical needs of my family.
Good day.
Oh..one other thing. Maybe the mods can set it up on registration that this forum is ONLY for keeping a dog inside the home, not outside. That might help this situation.
Regards.
