Facts about Rocky

  • Breed: Golden Retriever Mix
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
My name is Rocky. I'm a 55-pound Golden Retriever mix. If I didn't tell you, you'd never guess that I am thirteen years old or that I am mostly blind. Here are some facts to consider:

1. I can run and handle stairs with competence.

2. When I go hiking with my foster family, I outlast the three-year-old Great Pyrenees.

3. I wrestle with said Great Pyrenees, who is twice my size.

4. I can navigate very well in my foster home, even without supervision.

Are you impressed? Everyone I've met is.

Unlike my failing vision, my hearing is quite sharp. I come when called and can hear people coming to the door (and will alert you).

My foster family calls me a low-maintenance dog, a happy boy, and an excellent houseguest (discounting that brisket incident, which really wasn't my fault). I'm just so pleased to have people to love me. Just bring out the brush and I'll snuggle right up.

I'd like a family of my own who will take me walking, hiking, and swimming. I could do with or without kids, another dog, cats, or a fence--I'm adaptable like that. Snuggles are a must, though, but you already knew that.

I'm being fostered in the Twin Cities metro area, and my adoption fee is $145. Rest assured that my affection is priceless. So are my snuggles. And smiles. And more snuggles.

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!

Come Meet Our Pets...

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.
RAGOM is an all-volunteer organization. We try to respond to all inquires within 48 hours!
