I've reached out to As Good as Gold and DVGRR to see if they can help. If anyone else has some suggestions please share. This guy could be euthanized tomorrow. I would hate to see an 8 year old golden retriever mix euthanized

It would really help if he was listed or networked with the correct breed so the right rescues get his information. He isn't a Golden mix, he has upright ears like a husky or shepherd. If someone knows groups in his area for those breeds to share him with, he would have a better chance at rescue than calling him a Golden mix.

I'm thinking he could be shepard/golden mix?

I found someone who is willing to help me network him with DVGRR. Fingers crossed.

Praying this boy gets a chance! He looks like he has been through a lot, deserves a good home.



It is not the destination but the journey that matters. Thank you Charlie, for the journey, it was truly amazing!

Thanks Sandy. A woman from the Adopters Group - Love PR Goldens is helping me network with DVGRR. I've also reached out to As Good as Gold but I'm not as optimistic there. Initial feedback I had from one of the volunteers is that he doesn't look "golden" enough and they suspect they could be putting that in there to give him a better chance of survival. I'll follow up with Big Dog Rescue as well.

San Antonio Pets Alive is going to send his temp eval and medical records to me today. I'll keep networking him. He has a better chance of survival if they know he's being networked and a rescue might be willing to step up for him.

Thanks Jenn for everything you're doing for this boy.


Do you know if the groups you've contacted are working with groups in TX?
I have found from helping with Intake in past years, that it's usually easier and quicker to get a dog help if you work with groups in the same area or State where the dog is located.

I understand the group saying he's not golden enough. When the group I helped was contacted about a Golden mix, it had to look more like a Golden than the mix. My group was a small one too. We normally had 10 Goldens in Rescue at a time max. We did take in mixes, but we only had 20% or 2 in Rescue with the other 8 being pure bred goldens. The mixes are usually harder to place.

If you have a dog that is more of the mix, it's usually better to contact an all Breed Rescue Group. But each group is different and I see a lot of GR Rescues when I post the Monthly Featured GR Groups that have a lot of mixes that aren't even Goldens at all. It just depends.........

San Antonio Pets Alive appears to be the group trying to make San Antonio kill free and they work to network the dogs from San Antonio Animal Control. They have offered to network directly with the groups to establish a relationship if they are willing to step up and help rescue. They are the ones who sent me a list of businesses last week that they have established relationships with so I was able to find a place to board Keith (Levi) the lab. They also sent a list of transportation companies that I could work with if I can find a rescue elsewhere to take in the dog.

I believe DVGRR is better set up to do this kind of thing versus a rescue like As Good as Gold. I've also reached out to Big Dog Rescue who does rescue in Texas. I don't know anyone else.

I'll keep following up on this.
