The Animals of Gaston County Animal Control Owner reclaim only means that only the owner may reclaim the pet. Usually this is the status when the staff at the shelter deem a dog too dangerous for personal adoption. In some cases a 501c3 rescue can pull the dog, but they need to let the shelter know of their interest immediately.44 minutes ago · LikeUnlike

The Animals of Gaston County Animal Control A dog's breed does not determine his personality. All dogs are individuals and must be assessed on an individual basis. I'm not saying one way or the other about this guy, but him being a Golden Retriever has nothing to do with anything.

P...LEASE ONLY CONTACT THE SHELTER IF YOU ARE A 501c3 RESCUE! The shelter is very short staffed and can not handle a huge influx of calls coming in for a dog who is not able to be adopted.

I don't know what the deal is with the tagging, it's nothing on my part that makes it go away. Once again, Facebook fails!

Dallas, NC is about 40 minutes outside of Charlotte. No one is allowed, by law, to take him out and evaluate him because he is in bite quarantine. After his quarantine period is up I would be happy to behavior evaluate him. I can also try and find out the circumstances of the "bite" and if the owners have signed him over yet. I will do that tomorrow! Is there anything else anyone wants to know that does not involve interacting with him?See More

He's beautiful-any additional details on the following info:

Jax's Mom-I see the info on the shelter listing says OWNER RECLAIM ONLY.

Any update on his status/situation? Wonder if the owners will claim him or sign him over and let a Rescue Group take him.

Found link to him at Gaston. Wonder if he REALLY bit someone or someone used that as an excuse to turn him into shelter

I haven't heard anything.
Thanks Karen, I've gotten a few emails about him. I was wondering since you're on FB that maybe some info about him had been updated.

Looks like the Charlotte GR Rescue Club would be the closest if his owners don't claim him and the shelter allows him to be taken into Rescue-it would all depend on the details of the bite situation though.

From what I understand, he was in a fight with another dog and when someone attempted to pull him out, he bit the person. I will try to find an update on him. SOrry I didnt notice all the questions about him before.

That seems almost like an understandable reason for biting a human. Not saying it's acceptable, of course. I always figured if I intervened in a dog fight I stand a chance of being bitten. "Heat of the moment" sort of thing.

He is beautiful. I hope he can get a rescue to help him.

I'm right there with you on that one! Also, if anyone is interested in this dog or the possiblity, there is a group that works with thsi shelter that can go have the dog evaluated. Just say the word, and it could be done. I feel like this guy isnt getting a fair shake due to the reason for his "incarceration".

I've emailed GRRCC, I am a transport person in close proximity to Gaston. Waiting to hear if this beautiful boy is on their radar..... I am sure he is. I will pull/transport if given the approval to do so, although I can't foster. too small a house with one LARGE crate now that holds King Tucker.... Hopefully they can find a secure foster for him...... Send your prayers and good vibes....

Exactly. The great " Media" reported a few weeks back of a " viscious" Golden Retriever Attack on a 2 year old boy..... :uhoh: and I found out that the poor dog had an ear infection and was due for a veterinary visit the next day and the toddler ran up the the dog and pulled the sore ear and the dog snapped and bit the baby, the dog was put down. :(
