Facts about Redd

  • Breed: Golden Retriever Mix
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 12-298
Redd is a 5-year-old Golden mix weighing around 80 pounds. Once he warms up to you, he is very much a Velcro dog and loves to cuddle, especially when you are rubbing his ears.

Because Redd is apprehensive around strangers, he will need a strong, dog-savvy person to help him overcome his fears. He has responded very well to exercise, so his forever family will preferably have an active lifestyle or the means to provide him with an outlet for his energy--rain or shine--which is crucial to help him stay calm. His current exercise regimen consists of running (while Foster Dad bikes) for 2 miles in the morning and 2 miles in the evening, 7 days a week.

In addition to daily exercise, Redd also needs a quiet home without children or regular visitors. While he has made progress with meeting strangers, it is still a stressor and may stay so for a long time. If you live in the country with large distances to your neighbors, we would love for you to meet Redd.

Redd enjoys playing with other dogs and has shown very appropriate play behavior with the resident dog at his foster home. It would be wonderful if he could have a canine playmate in his forever home, but it is not a requirement as long as his needs for physical exercise as well as mental stimulation can be satisfied. If you do have a dog, however, he/she should be a confident leader for Redd to model on.

If you can look past and handle his imperfections, Redd is truly a gem. He is housebroken, has perfect recall, and does not counter-surf. Most of all, he is a loyal companion, the most lovable teddy bear you can imagine.

Redd is being fostered in the Twin Cities metro area, and his adoption fee is $350. Please contact us to learn more about him.

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!

Come Meet Our Pets...

RAGOM holds several adoption events each month. For more information about upcoming Meet and Greets, please visit our calendar at http://www.ragom.org/events/calendar.html .

Our Adoption Process...

RAGOM requires interested adopters to complete an application online or by mail (application fee is waived for those referred by adoptapet.com), and have a home visit (references, pictures, and/or a video visit may be used in place of a home visit for those applicants who live outside our standard territory). Adopters must sign a contract and pay the adoption fee by check or credit card at the time of adoption. Adoption fees are as follows: Puppy-4 years: $350; 5-8 years: $290, 9 years and over: $145. All dogs, including puppies, are altered before adoption.
RAGOM is an all-volunteer organization. We try to respond to all inquires within 48 hours!
