I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
UPDATE: Maddox was diagnosed with a stage 5/6 heart murmur (subaortic stenosis). This means that this little guy’s life expectancy will be 4-6 years and he will tire easily. He can have fun like a normal pup but cannot handle strenuous exercise. He's not in pain, just born with a weak heart. About Maddox: My name is Maddox and I am a 5 month old pure bred Golden Retriever. My family gave me up because they were allergic to me. Unfortunately, once I came to AGK, their doctor told me I have a heart murmur so off I went to UT Vet School. There they diagnosed me with subaortic stenosis, which is a birth defect. There is no cure or surgery for this so the doctor put me on beta blockers. Hopefully with these meds, I can live up to 6 years of age. I am a happy, lively puppy and the good news the UT doctor said I can run and play and be a dog. That is good because I still have a great life ahead of me. I love other dogs, kids, humans, everyone. I need a home with a medium energy dog to show me the ropes and a stay-at-home/work-from-home parent. If you think this could be you, ask for me, Maddox.
