BANJO-pending's Story...
Banjo arrived on Saturday, September 13th. He is a 7 month old male who weighed in at 34 pounds. He has been neutered, heart worm tested, rabie shot etc. He is doing great! The moment we met him he was willing to provide kisses right away. This boy is a love bug! He was taken into our home with a dog, cats, and a toddler! He loves the child. Banjo does not mind that the child rests his head right on him. The baby even went into the crate with the dog. He is very tolerant. Banjo did not care about the cat. He just seems to be an easy going dog who goes with the flow. He is young, needs to learn not to pull when being leash walked but sure is easy to control and correct. He is only 36 pounds. Banjo will grow a little more in the next few months but we do not see that he will be a large dog. The exact mix is unknown but the vet believes he has golden in him. So far, in the last few days, there has been no accidents and Banjo has gone to the door to ask to go out.

UPDATE: This 7 month old has had no accidents in 5 days. He barks to tell me when he wants to go out. He is a good boy. With the cats, he is doing fine. He did chase one cat, but ignores the other. They get along fine. The dog in our home is older and does not want to play but Banjo wishes he would. He is young and needs to play. He does play with the ball, he plays tug, he plays with a plush toy that he pulls apart. With my grandson, who is going to be two in November, Banjo gets along just fine with him. They are buddies. He has slept in the crate and sleeps in the kitchen. When I left the house, I gated Banjo in the kitchen. Nothing was touched, no accidents, no escapes. He cried the first day when I left but not the next time. He will go in the crate on his own to sleep/rest. He has no issues with the crate. He also sleeps under a table here and there. He is really sweet and continues to show how much love he is willing to share. He will snuggle and sit by you. SO SWEET! He has barked at noises outside and quiets when told. He is just a pup that wants to play. He knows the sit command. He pulls less on the leash when I shorten it.

This animal is currently fostered in a private home. Our rescue is 100% foster home based. We do not have a shelter or kennel. They are cared for by a loving family until adopted. Each pup has had their first vet exam, a shot, and de-worming, etc We make sure they have no fleas prior to going into our foster homes. They are fostered out of the shelter at least two weeks or more prior to adopting to monitor health. We take their care seriously! Please note that the adoption appointments will be scheduled after your application is approved. Once adopted, feel free to change the dog's name. You do not have to keep the name listed in this post.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BANJO-pending, a West Milford Golden Retriever/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Golden Retriever/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog for sale in West Milford, or seeking a Golden Retriever/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in West Milford.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in West Milford 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 West Milford 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!

In fact, there are even Golden Retriever/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog breeders who help with Golden Retriever/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog rescue.
