Golden groupy

We are new to the forum. I haven't even figured out how to start a conversation. We lost baby Jake, our golden. I'm trying to find a way to heal. I got scammed trying to rescue a pair of goldens, they got the money and I didn't get the pups. So I'm here to learn and in time find a new golden baby.

Did you buy them off craigslist? I remember when I was looking to adopt a golden, I would text someone on craigslist and they would tell me they'd ship the puppy in a box and ask for money on paypal... That's a SCAM!!!!

If you got them from a shelter I would definitely file a police report, if there's someone... anyone you can trace that organization to just give them that name. I'm so sorry for what you're going through, stay strong !! <3

Hello and welcome to the forum. I am sorry about the loss of Jake. Many of us here have lost beloved goldens and know how difficult it is when they pass. When you decide you are ready to adopt or purchase an adult dog or a puppy there are many people on the forum who will be willing to give you helpful advice regarding reputable breeders and rescue organizations. If you are interested in a puppy I would suggest reading the "stickys" in the section on breeders. And if you have any questions about a specific breeder or rescue post them here. In all likelihood someone will be able to answer.

Hello and welcome. I am so sorry about the loss of your Jake. As someone else above said, almost all of us here have lost at least one golden--I have lost 6--two adopted--over the years. It always hurt.

I don't know where you live, but maybe you could check with the nearest golden retriever rescue. Most likely no puppy, but maybe a younger dog. Maybe you could check out breeders in your area or close enough to visit and see for yourself. Also, I would file charges over the taking of your money and not delivering on the puppies. Good luck with whichever way you decide to do.
