While we're waiting on more photos of Oakley, we didn't want to waste one minute finding him the perfect home!

It must be a blue moon because a real life teddy bear like Oakley doesn't come around very often! Oakley is a magnificent Golden Retriever who lives up to the breed standard in every way. People had seen him all over the county for a couple of weeks -- another unwanted dog, or a mismanaged one by someone who just didn't care. He was finally picked up by animal control and never claimed -- how someone could not keep track of a boy this magnificent is shocking. Oakley is that all-around great boy who loves people and is welcomed by other dogs. He's very playful but in a gentle way so as not to overwhelm. For example, he tailors his play style to the small older poodle at his foster home in the sweetest way, and yet will happily wrestle with the bigger dogs! He's affectionate, very polite and very well mannered. He even just naturally sits before he eats! He loves long walks and going on car rides . . . but please make sure the passenger seat is clear or he'll knock everything off just to climb in! He's a natural-born Co-pilot!! If you've ever had a Golden dream, Oakley will fulfill it and more. We think Oakley is between 1 - 2 years old, he weighs about 60 pounds and he's a very healthy boy. He looks pure but we have no papers on him. If you hold the Golden ticket for this Golden Prince, please visit www.pinkshelter.org for more information about the adoption process or click here for our online application. Full vetting and neuter included in his $550 adoption fee. Transport fee is additional $150. IF YOU HAVE AOL or YAHOO PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPAM FILE FOR OUR RESPONSE

About Little Pink Shelter - CT Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Little Pink Shelter is a registered 501(c)3 charity. All donations are tax-deductible.

When I started The Little Pink Shelter back in 2008, my mission was to help shelter dogs win their fight for a second chance at life; as a breast cancer survivor, I knew all too well the sweetness of that victory. Since founding The Little Pink Shelter, I have placed over 2,700+ dogs and puppies into loving homes.

The Little Pink Shelter is considered more of a "boutique" rescue, focusing solely on making an adoption successful. Working closely with select shelters and rescues in Arkansas where the pet overpopulation continues to be out of control, my colleagues and I are careful to temperament test each dog so we can understand the type of home to which it will be best-suited.

Too many wonderful dogs are put down each week because of lack of space, lack of funding and a widespread disregard for spaying/neutering and responsible ownership. The plight of these dogs and the quest to find each one a loving home is what fuels us every day.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a facility in Connecticut, so you can only visit The Little Pink Shelter on the internet. Our dogs and puppies are usually fostered in the south and the overwhelming majority of them are adopted out before they arrive so they can go right home after transport and begin bonding with their new forever families! Check out the "Love Fests" Albums on our Facebook Fan Page!

We are always in search of short term foster homes up here in Connecticut and the surrounding states!!! If you're not ready for a full 15+ year commitment, or if you have always wanted to help in some way, please consider short-term fostering a dog or puppy for us! Write us for more info!

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the process is submitting an online application located through a link in each pet's description, or from our website at www.pinkshelter.org under the "How to Adopt" tab. Whenever possible we like to begin review with a vet reference. After that, we will be in touch to set up a lengthy phone interview where each of us has the opportunity to ask all our questions of the other. Home visits are at our discretion. Once approved, there is a contract and transport is arranged if necessary.
