I am biased, as I am a volunteer with Quebec Golden Rescue. Also I have had goldens since 1977. Although my mini-dachshund has captured my heart too.

I have two male dogs now, and had a female golden 8 years older than my male golden

If you visit our website www.goldenrescuequebec.com you can sign up for automatic notification when the website page is updated.

We do adopt outside Quebec. Several rescue groups in Ontario do our home visits for us.

(I dont want to hijack the thread, just want to be sure others realize that we ARE a reputable, responsible, legitimate rescue group)

We are, we are!!! (I'm with Golden Rescue too... which apparently gives Goldengirl permission to volunteer me for stuff all the time)

I see your dog is a mix....how is he with other dogs? With other males?

If he is the least bit dominant (and he's still very young) you might want to consider getting a female dog for the best chance of success for them in the future.

What Lucky said, regarding sex of a second dog. It is a safer bet.

I saw your dog's photo in the intro forum - yours was Buddy, right? He is really a gorgeous dog!
