Charlie (aka Simon)'s Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Charlie (aka Simon)'s Story...
Charlie is an amazing and affectionate dog. He loves to cuddle, be petted getting brushed with his Furminator and having his teeth brushed daily. He is very enthusiastic about life, and learning to harness his energy. He loves pleasing, and he enjoys training practices because he knows that pleases his people. He loves to wrestle with our slightly older golden and follows her around and imitates everything that she does. He needs to keep active, especially running and walking, and he is working on his leash skills.

Outside of the house, he is easily distracted by any little noise or movement or other animals. He has a high prey drive, which includes rabbits, cats, chickens, birds, and some dogs.

Charlie’s ideal owner would be someone with a strong and consistent personality. Someone that has time and patience that will be willing to take him to training. He is good with other dogs but during meal times and when given treats he will need to be separated. He tends to think all the food and treats are for only him. So we are working on his food aggression. No cats, small dogs or kids for Charlie.

Charlie needs to continue his training in Boulder when he goes to his new home. It is very specialized training that is not treat based and very informative for any dog owner. GRFR will pay for this training and it can be scheduled for the weekend.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Charlie (aka Simon), a Denver 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 Denver, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Denver.

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