Personality and additional information:

Tyler is a big golden full of energy that loves to play and be active. He will act out when bored by grabbing your favorite shoe or towel or sock to get attention. He is well behaved otherwise and a big lap-dog at heart, but will be the pack leader if you let him. Can be left alone in the home without worry. Like some, he does counter-surf if it smells good. Believe that some of his dog aggression will subside now that he is neutered. Recommend an experienced owner who knows how to handle a dominant personality dog.

About Southeastern Virginia Golden Retriever Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Prior to being adopted all goldens are fully vaccinated, heartworm and stool tested, dewormed and treated for heartworms as indicated, started on heartworm preventative, spayed or neutered, and micro-chipped. SEVA GRREAT is successful due to the tremendous amount of time given by our volunteers, generous donations received from Golden Retriever and animal lovers, and monies received from fundraising events an adoption fees. By the time an average dog enters its adoptive home it will have been supported by 10-12 volunteers and will have cost an average of nearly $700 for medical and foster care and other support expenses.

Our Adoption Process...

Please visit our website at to learn more about the adoption process. All adoptive homes must be approved by a SEVA GRREAT home evaluator, who helps you find your new family member. All of our dogs go through our foster care program, where they are evaluated for temperament, house manners, and sociability with children, other dogs, and cats. This helps us find just the right dog for you, your environment, and your lifestyle.
