I currently have two spayed females and we keep active. They compete in obedience and my older one (coming up on 12 yrs in April) did very well. I'd like to get back into agility at some point. Also, all of my dogs have been and still are very active pet therapy dogs.

Thank you.

Just so you know, Golden Retriever rescues are not animal shelters. They generally are organizations that have foster families take care of the dogs until they find a home for them. In a foster based rescue he would be staying in a home with a family, and then placed in his new home once they identify a match for him. He would not be kept in a shelter situation.

"To my mind, I hold that the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man."

While I feel for the OP's situation and am glad she's trying to do the right thing, it occurs to me that this post violates Rule 4, specifically "No Member ... will post for any kind of ... discussions of proposed ... dog availability or sales."

As one who has learned the hard way how strict enforcement is, I'm surprised to see three posts by moderators. If it's a rule, it's a rule. Are we only enforcing it against posts we don't like?

Personally, I think the OP should be allowed to post this. But I think other things should be allowed, and this rule has been cited to me several times for similar stuff.

I thought same thing. Then it occurred to me that perhaps this poster had a prior thread outlining issues, etc so that was why she was being allowed to solicit for a home. But I couldn't find anything re: other prior thread that'd make it reasonable to make exception. I'm gonna name a puppy Prism's Rule 4 someday.. guess what the call name would be?

So that we may get more clarification on what the board owners consider sales versus rehoming we will get in touch with them. They have made it very clear that there is to be no selling of puppies on this forum but we will get clarification if rehoming by an individual will fall under same situation. This Thread will be closed for now until we get it clarification.

He doesn't bite or jump on them. He listens when you tell him to stop. He just sleeps all day waiting for us to come home but needs someone who has more time for him. He requires a lot of human interaction. We feel sad and want the best for him. Does anyone know of anyone who is interested? There are so many creepers out there and want to make sure he goes to a good home. We would like to interview whoever may be interested.

Hi Gee

Where are you located? Your boy is beautiful. I hope you will reach out to the Golden Retriever rescue in your area, even if you are concerned about compensation they may be able to help you with that by arranging a adopter. Its really about the dog for all of us isnt. Let us know!

OP if you are still out there and looking SoCal has lots of really great rescues. I've worked and fostered with rescues for decades. Your dog needs a home, that's what rescues do. They will go out to the potential adopters home and visit, they will interview their vet, they will observe the behavior of their current dog (if they have one) and size up if this is a good family for your dog. They will also go BACK after the adoption and see how things are going. Are you willing to do all this for a perspective family?
Until your pup is placed it will be living with someone that has other goldens. An experienced foster that can help your pup be comfortable and access his level of training and provide training classes if needed. Golden rescues are wonderful and very involved in helping your pup.

Please reconsider this avenue, they will keep in touch with you if you ask. This will allow you to review the information from the potential adopters. Rescues are a wonderful resource.

My co-worker is willing to take him. She has a five year old golden which would make my dog happy to be paired up with another dog. She doesn't have any kids so she has more time than me.


Only thing now is it's hard letting go! I know I have to be realistic in the sense that he is not getting the attention he deserves because after work we are at practices and on the weekends we have sports games. I keep going back and forth about how we can make it work
