ADOPTED ON 01-17-15 Beautiful Blaze had a bit of a rough start to her life. She was picked up by Winnsboro animal control when she was approximately 2 months old. This pound is almost always at capacity, and the constant noise of the kennel took a toll on Blaze, she became stressed due to the noise and confinement to her pen. Blaze then went to a foster home where she escaped, but never left the property. It was over a mo514nth before her foster was able to touch her and coax her to come inside. She never once snapped, but was absolutely terrified and trembled with fear. That is when the rescue decided to contact a handler experienced with dogs that have been traumatized and are unsure about everything to help her work on her trust of humans. Blaze is an 8 month old female golden retriever mix, she weighs approximately 31lbs. She is up to date on all vaccinations and in excellent health.

Blaze has come so far in just a short few months from being the petrified little dog she was. She recently attended a Halloween event in the center of town with hundreds of people. She wore a pumpkin costume and she even had children come up and take pictures with her, and she did wonderful! Today, Blaze is a happy little dog who loves playing with other dogs. She is still a little unsure of people she is not familiar with, but given a proper introduction and a little time she warms up. She is house trained and although she has not been crated, she has spent time in a kennel. Her foster mom thinks she would do fine in a crate, because they are quite similar. Her behavior with cats is unknown. Blaze loves to go for rides in the car, and sits on her mom's lap in the car. Blaze has a low to moderate activity level.

The ideal home for Blaze would be a loving home, with someone who would continue to work with her when she is exposed to new things and people. It would be wonderful if Blaze could go to a home with another dog who is well balanced, and could continue to help build her confidence, she will absolutely recover and come out of her shell. Once she warms up to people, she loves attention and is a complete snuggle bug. Blaze has come so far since her first day in foster care. When you look into her eyes you can see that sweet golden expression saying "I just want you to love me". Do you have room in your home and heart for Blaze?

Our dogs are waiting for that ideal forever home where they will be cherished as deserving family members. It's sad these second chances are even necessary for these dogs, but we are committed to them and will devote the time and energy to their rehoming, and not just MOVE them to save more dogs. We diligently and responsibly seek good matches as we don't want to re-home the dog again. These animals have already endured more than they should have, and through no fault of their own. It behooves us to be honest and forthright, and we appreciate the same in return from applicants. It's that winning combination of reciprocal trust and respect that allows for successful placements to be made. Happy adopters translate to happy dogs, and that's our goal!

That said, you'll understand why we are committed to the well-being of our charges and consider this veterinarian check mandatory. If you are a first-time dog owner, we will work with you every step of the way! ADVOCACY AND EDUCATION ARE AS MUCH A PART OF RESPONSIBLE RESCUE AS ADOPTION! And it takes a RESCUE VILLAGE to help the most dogs possible in a thorough manner to ensure success on all fronts, and then some! It is an awful feeling to fail a dog, and we can't continue rescue if we don't do everything we can to ensure good matches for the dogs and tender families who might adopt them. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.

Although we are an extremely small rescue group, we understand and respect your family's eagerness to be in touch and learn as much as you can about the dogs you are considering adopting.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Blaze, a Preston 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 Preston, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Preston.

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