Hi and welcome. Have you had a dog before? If so what kind? How old are the children?
I hope you enjoy the forum :)

Are you looking for an older dog? There are some great golden retreiver rescues. Some of the other members can tell you where to find that info.

I would go for an older dog especially since your last dog was lost so tragically. Little ones puppy and human forget.

Good luck in your search.

I got Lucky in 1998 during summer vacation when my brother and I would be home to help Mom housebreak him.
