Bear's Story...
Hi there! My name's Bear, what's yours? I'm a 1 year old retriever mix and am looking for a new home. I was originally brought to the shelter because my owner worked long hours and didn't have time to spend with me. He would leave my brother and I in the basement for many hours every day. After coming to the shelter I was adopted into a new home, but unfortunately was recently returned. I am a very sweet and lovable boy, but I do have some separation anxiety when left alone. What can I say...I just LOVE to be around people! It's probably because of how much I was left alone in my original home when I was a puppy. So my ideal home would be with someone who is home most of the time, or someone who will work with me and help me be more comfortable and confident when left alone.

I would really like a home where I can be with another dog, and am excellent with kids. I like to chase cats sometimes, so it would be best if I didn't have to live with any of them. I'm up to date on vaccines, neutered, and have a microchip. All I'm waiting for now is YOU!

Do you have room in your house and heart for a sweet boy like me? The shelter is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1-5, Tuesday and Thursday from 1-8, and Saturday from 10-2. Come visit!

You can see some of our adoptable pets almost every Saturday at the Petsmart in Greensburg from noon to 6pm and some Sundays too. All adoption fees include spay/neuter and up-to-date vaccinations.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bear, a Youngwood 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 Youngwood, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Youngwood.

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