  1. Rescues and Pet Insurance

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Out of "pure curiosity" (i.e., I don't see myself getting a rescue, of any breed)... With the "obvious value" of getting pet insurance, and with all of the insurance's have exclusions for "pre-existing conditions", how well does that work with getting a dog from a rescue? If you have...
  2. How to go about adopting a golden

    General Golden Retriever Rescue Forum
    A couple months ago my golden retriever passed away. We adopted him when he was 5 years old from a lady who could not keep him anymore. He was the best dog, very well trained, friendly, people oriented, and very cute. He lived to be 15 years old. We want to adopt a golden retriever again but...

    General Golden Retriever Rescue Forum
    I participated in my first ever rescue tonight. I think I was a little bit crazy, but I couldn't watch these two dogs get hit by a car.

  14. Disappointed in my Rescue

    Golden Retriever Rescue Cases
    I feel guilty even posting this on here - and I may not be posting it in the right section - but I am very disappointed in the "golden" we got from a rescue. I didn't save the online ad, but I was thinking it said he was a purebred. Even being a mix wasn't a big deal, though, because our last...
