Facts about Missy

  • Breed: Golden Retriever

Missy is a nine-year-old Golden Retriever who sadly spent all her life as a puppy breeder in a commercial facility, living in a kennel run outside. After years of quiet suffering, she is now learning to enjoy the Golden Life in a loving RAGOM foster home.

Despite her fears, Missy is a resilient girl who is increasingly showing her courageous side by following the lead of other dogs. She now enjoys playing with other dogs and will seek out chin scratches from her people.

Missy will need to go to a home with a fenced yard; a medium to large, confident dog; and no small children. We would prefer adopters who have prior experience working with emotionally traumatized dogs.

Missy is being fostered in NE Minnesota, and her adoption fee is $145. Please contact us to learn more about our sweet little Missy.

About Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota

About Our Rescue Group...

RAGOM has been rescuing pets since 1985! We are a 501(c)(3), all-volunteer organization.
RAGOM’s mission is to rescue and rehome unwanted, abused, neglected, and displaced Golden Retrievers and Golden Retriever mixes, and locate permanent homes for them. We advocate responsible pet ownership and support animal abuse and neglect prevention programs, as well as spay/neuter initiatives.
Rescued dogs receive comprehensive medical care including a complete veterinary exam, updated vaccinations, and a microchip, and each is spayed or neutered prior to adoption. While in RAGOM’s care, dogs live as part of a family in loving foster homes where they are fed, groomed, socialized, and begin to learn basic manners. Foster families provide ongoing temperament assessment for each dog to determine what qualities should be present in an ideal forever home, and then match the dog with an approved adoptive family.
Donations and new volunteers are always welcome!
