Jim's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.

Jim's Story...
Jim is a 10 yr. old that I can best describe as a perfect gentleman. He is housebroken, knows how to sit and down, doesn't get up on the furniture, rarely barks and then mostly softly and politely. He's very loving and gets along with his 6 yr. old female foster sibling as well as the cat in his foster home. He walks nicely on a leash and rides well in the car.

Jim had several lumps removed prior to entering foster care with GRFR. His foster mom is working diligently with him to gain a bit of weight and he's gained 5 pounds so far. About a week after his arrival in foster care he had 2 grand mal seizures. He also was having focal facial seizures. He was evaluated by a vet neurologist and no reason was found for the seizures. He is currently on medication every 12 hours for the seizures and has had none since. In screening for the seizures he was found to have a mass on his adrenal gland. He does not have Cushing's disease but the vets aren't sure if the mass is cancerous or benign so it will need to be followed up in several months to see if it is increasing in size. Jim's anti seizure meds run approx. $60 per month.

Jim would do best in a home that does not have an overly playful dog. He looks like he'd like to play, but his foster sister has a tendency to bowl him over as she is quite energetic. We don't know his history around children, but think he'd do best in a home without young, lively children.

If you are interested in adopting this handsome, gentleman of a senior boy please contact GRFR.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jim, 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.
