ASHER (video)'s Story...
I am a 6-year-old neutered male Golden Retriever mix. I weigh about 75 pounds. If you are looking for a sweet, happy-go-lucky, gentle dog, then I am your guy! You won't find a friendlier dog than me no matter where you search. I'm also a pretty handsome fellow, too! I'm great with other dogs and I'm also potty trained. I love people and I'm super affectionate and very calm. I was brought into a local high-kill shelter as a stray back in February. When I got there the staff noticed that something was just not quite right with me. I was very sweet to everyone, always happy, and my tail never stopped wagging, but it was obvious that something was amiss. They noticed that when I walked my head was tilted slightly to the right and I would lose my balance sometimes when walking. I was also extremely malnourished. They increased the amount of food they were giving me and prescribed some pain medication thinking my issues may have been due to an injury. In a little over a week, I gained 10 pounds and was able to walk much better! I still had some troubles here and there, so I was to be monitored for another week or two and then if things hadn't improved I was scheduled to be put to sleep. Scary right?!?! I got really lucky though. One of my friends at the shelter decided to contact CageFree to ask them if they would take me into their rescue and thankfully they said yes. After picking me up, they immediately sent me to see a neurologist. I had a whole battery of tests performed on me and thousands of dollars spent to find out what was going on. Everything came back normal except for my hearing test. Apparently, I am completely deaf. No big deal though. In regards to my gait disturbance and the head tilt, what my doctor said is that I may have been born like this, had distemper as a puppy, had a very severe ear infection, or I may have suffered from some kind of injury at some point in my life. It's really difficult to say. The important thing for you to know though is that I am perfectly healthy. And, whatever the reason for my minor abnormalities, my life span and my quality of life are unaffected. I'm just a super happy, affectionate guy with a little bit of a balance issue. Nothing to worry about. So, if you're interested in opening your heart and your home to a wonderful loving dog, then please do not hesitate to contact CageFree!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ASHER (video), a Los Angeles Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Golden Retriever for sale in Los Angeles, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Los Angeles.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Los Angeles already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Los Angeles breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Golden Retriever breeders who help with Golden Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Los Angeles paves the way for another one to be saved.
