Facts about Lilly

  • Breed: Golden Retriever/German Shorthaired Pointer Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
A Good Samaritan found sweet little Lilly fending for herself in the country and tried to locate her owner. When no one came to claim her, RAGOM took her in--and not a moment too soon as she was heavily pregnant. All of Lilly's pups have since been adopted; it is now Mama's turn!

Lilly is estimated to be just under two years old and appears to be a Labrador Retriever/German Shorthaired-Pointer mix. True to her hunting instincts, she will follow her nose everywhere, going after squirrels and rabbits with intense focus. Because of that as well as the fact that she still needs work on her recall, we would like to see her in a home with a physical fence, the taller the better since she has demonstrated the ability to climb a horse gate.

Our little hunter is also known to chase cats and catch chickens, so we would have to say no if you have kitties, small pets, or fowls. On the other hand, if you have dogs, especially playful ones, Lilly would love to be friends! After all that time she spent alone out in the country, she is understandably appreciative of the companionship of and playtime with her canine pals. She is learning all about the joy of stuffed toys and squeaky balls, too.

Speaking of learning, Lilly is working hard to improve her manners. She is house-trained, but does still get very exuberant when meeting people. Although she has not jumped on children, we would prefer to place her in a home without little ones; sturdy, dog-savvy kids are considered on a case-by-case basis. Fortunately, Lilly is a smart cookie and will undoubtedly catch on soon. We will revise her requirements accordingly as she progresses.

Being a young dog, Lilly would benefit from continued training. When she has mastered basic obedience, you might consider trying agility or therapy. Given her inquisitive nature and sweet personality, Lilly's potential is limitless! She would enjoy being someone's hiking buddy as well, so if you have an active lifestyle and meet all the above requirements, please contact us to learn about our adoption process. Lilly is being fostered in Fargo, ND, and her adoption fee is $350.

About Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota

About Our Rescue Group...

RAGOM has been rescuing pets since 1985! We are a 501(c)(3), all-volunteer organization.
RAGOM’s mission is to rescue and rehome unwanted, abused, neglected, and displaced Golden Retrievers and Golden Retriever mixes, and locate permanent homes for them. We advocate responsible pet ownership and support animal abuse and neglect prevention programs, as well as spay/neuter initiatives.
Rescued dogs receive comprehensive medical care including a complete veterinary exam, updated vaccinations, and a microchip, and each is spayed or neutered prior to adoption. While in RAGOM’s care, dogs live as part of a family in loving foster homes where they are fed, groomed, socialized, and begin to learn basic manners. Foster families provide ongoing temperament assessment for each dog to determine what qualities should be present in an ideal forever home, and then match the dog with an approved adoptive family.
Donations and new volunteers are always welcome!

RAGOM holds several adoption events each month. For more information about upcoming Meet and Greets, please visit our calendar at http://www.ragom.org/events/calendar.html .

Our Adoption Process...

RAGOM requires interested adopters to complete an application online or by mail (application fee is waived for those referred by adoptapet.com), and have a home visit (references, pictures, and/or a video visit may be used in place of a home visit for those applicants who live outside our standard territory). Adopters must sign a contract and pay the adoption fee by check or credit card at the time of adoption. Adoption fees are as follows: Puppy-4 years: $350; 5-8 years: $290, 9 years and over: $145. All dogs, including puppies, are altered before adoption.
