Just wondering if anyone knows of an active, adult Golden who needs a really good home. Golden Rescue in Ontario currently has 1,000 applications and the other rescues I have contacted also have no dogs, a waiting list, or will not send a dog to Toronto. I’ve lived with 8 Goldens since 1976 and currently have a rescue adopted from the Toronto Humane Society (sheer luck that I found a Golden there). He is an old guy now (they say he’s 16, but I doubt it). Anyway, he prefers spending his time lounging in the sun and waiting for his next meal (he’s Golden, after all). I’m looking for a dog to hike and swim with me – and possibly qualify to be a therapy dog, as my last 4 Goldens have been. Is there perhaps a breeder that has a dog retired from breeding or competition that needs a good home? Or someone who has to, sadly, rehome their dog?
Since my post in April, I am now living with a lovely blonde Golden (whom I named Lucy) from Istanbul. She’s about six years old and arrived in Canada on May 28 from those wonderful folks at Golden Rescue. Don’t give up! There are more and more Goldens arriving from overseas through many rescue organizations.
