Johnny's Story...
Name: Johnny
Breed: Golden Retriever Mix
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male

Johnny is big fun in a small package. He is still puppy-ish in temperament, playful and goofy. He has loads of energy and then crashes. He crates well for the night and when I'm away. He is housebroken, and although still puppy chews; he chews on toys and chewies rather than household items if given the choice. He LOVES toys of all kinds, bones, and other chewies, but likes a variety because he likes to change it up. He is working on basic obedience such as sit and down, walks ok on a leash, although gets distracted easily and veers off course following new sights. His excitement levels mean he still jumps up but is learning not too (it's just really hard because he wants to give you kisses!). He is far more toy and attention motivated than treats, relishing a scratch over a cookie any day. He is very submissive to other dogs, although would love it if another pup would play with him. I joke that he's like a kid at an all adult party here with his foster brothers because he can only get them to play with him for a couple minutes at a time. Overall, he is a fun loving, excitement seeking, kissy, cuddler, who would love another pup to play chase with or someone to take him out on walks and hikes to explore the world. Please email with questions or for an application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Johnny, a Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
