Wanted: To rescue a Golden Retriever

June 14th, 2007, 02:57 AM
Good morning,

My friend, Rene, wants to get a Golden Retriever. SHe would prefer to adopt a rescued dog. He is an experienced dog owner; his previous Golden died of old age. He has a cat, a completely fenced yard, and is semi-retired.

Good Luck! There are many here who rescue!

I should have stated that my friend Rene wants to adopt a FEMALE Golden Retriever (he had a female Golden previously). The dog should be no older than five years since he finds the lifespan too short as it is so an older dog would have just a few years in a normal lifespan.

Definitely keep in touch with Frenchy. If they don't have a younger female right now, chances are there will be one in the near future looking for a home (sadly!). Please tell your friend thank you for wanting to adopt a rescue dog! :thumbs up

You may also want to get in touch with all breed rescues - sometimes they have goldens by chance.

Good luck and let us know how the search goes! :fingerscr

Today was a busy one with a number of dogs coming in or waiting for foster homes. It is moving season in Montreal. :sad:
Unfortunately we don't have enough foster homes to help all the dogs but we will do the best we can. If you are looking for a golden please contact a rescue member and maybe we can help match you with one.

There's a 3 year old gorgeous Golden/Lab mix at the SPCA Montreal...if you call, you can ask for #812.
