Rue's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Rue's Story...
This poor girl was found by a kind family at the Houston Zoo in very poor condition. Her eyes were matted shut, she was very emaciated and missing about 80% of her fur. Her eyes and skin were infected and she was covered in fleas. She was very skittish, frightened and timid. With the care of her foster family, she has blossomed into a very affectionate and loving girl who gets along well with dogs and cats and seems to love everyone she meets. Her fur is still very short but is coming back very soft and silky and is a deep, rich red.

Rue is approximately 8 years old. She is current on vaccinations and spayed. She is heartworm positive and will begin treatment soon.

Watch for more to come on Rue as she improves.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rue, a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Houston.

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