RUSTY's Story...
Hi, I'm Rusty! Well, that's what the rescue named me for my gorgeous red curls. You can call me whatever you'd like, but don't call me late for dinner! Hah hah! No, seriously. Don't call me late for dinner. I love my food. But I share it well and never have an argument with any of my canine foster siblings over food- or anything. I'm just a happy-go-lucky gal, glad to have a foster home and to be off the street. I know I had a home once, because I understand all about houses and house rules, and am completely housebroken. I love my crate, and I know that I am supposed to bark at the mail man who brings the bills. I love to go for car rides and for walks on my leash. I am very good on my leash, but I do get excited when I see a cat. Foster mom is not sure if I want to play with the cat or something else. At the dog park I am great off leash and always come when called. I love people, and families, and older children ( really little ones scare me a bit with their sudden movements). I really want a family of my own. Could that be you? Please call and ask to meet me!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

RUSTY, a Palatine 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 Palatine, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Palatine.

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