Meadow's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Meadow's Story...
Meadow is an 11 ½ to 12 ½ year old blonde, female golden. She came back to SEVA GRREAT after her owner passed away earlier this year. Meadow weighs around 70 pounds and even though she is a senior golden, she gets around exceptionally well. She has no known health issues and only takes Cosequin for her joints.

Meadow gets along well with her foster’s 11 year old male golden. However, she has, on occasion, made a low growl when other dogs get in “her space”. She is more prone to doing this with other females as opposed to males or with younger dogs that are playful.

She has been exposed to young children without a problem and has never growled at a person. She has also wet in the house a few times so she needs to be let outside every few hours when roaming the house. She does not need to be crated and stays in the sunroom when the foster family is away. Also, Meadow is a little nervous when riding in a car. She’s been going on short rides to help her get over this fear.

Meadow is very sweet and has lots of personality. She would do best in a home with no other dogs or with older, laid back ones. It would also work best for her to be in a home where someone is home during the day.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Meadow, a Yorktown 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 Yorktown, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Yorktown.

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