Max's Story...

Happy Max is a 6 yr old, neutered, healthy, micro chipped and sweet Golden Retriever who wants a forever home. He is a joy in his foster home and loves every person he meets from kids to adults. He needs to lose weight and is on a diet along with progressively longer walks daily.His leash skills are rough so obedience class is needed to help him learn not to pull. He is perfect in the house; housebroken, never chews and loves to hang out with you. He loves to go for rides in the car. He shows food and toy guarding so he is best being the only dog even though he normally gets along with the dogs he is around by simply ignoring them and focusing on you. He also shouldn't be with small children even though he loves them; his food & toy guarding could be an issue with small children. He gives the best greetings when you come home, picking up as many things as he can hold in his mouth! He chases cats so a cat-free home is required. He wants all the attention! He just wants to be loved and he will be a loyal companion sure to make you smile.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Max, a Irwin 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 Irwin, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Irwin.

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