Skippy's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Skippy's Story...
Boing! Boing! Boing!  If my legs made noise, that’s what they’d sound like.  I love to jump up and down.  Sounds goofy?  Well, I am!  My foster dad says that I am insanely happy with a high-pitched, silly bark to match.  I might look just a little goofy too because my tongue is always hanging out the side of my mouth and one of my ears is shorter than the other.  I’m six but have the attitude of a puppy.  I like to chew on a toy and will wag my tail as I do it to show how happy I am.
I love to go for walks, go for a ride in the car, and chase balls.  I like everyone, including cats and other dogs.  I do know for sure that every toy is for me, so I might have to remove toys from other dogs’ custody, but I’m nice about it.  I get a little crazy when it comes to getting into the car and whenever I see anything that resembles a leash.  We’d have to work on that, I guess.  I know sit, down, and fetch, and we could just work from there.  I might even give you a high five.  I also know about going outside and to let you know when I need to go.  I haven’t had happy experiences in a crate, so I hope you don’t have any of those at my new home.
Once I’ve healed from my neutering surgery, my foster dad is going to take me to the dog park and that sounds really fun.  I bet that there are lots of dogs there to play with.  I need some exercise a couple of times a day and then I’ll go take a rest.  Sure, I need a little training, but I’ve got tons of love to give my new forever family.  Just scratch my head and you’ll have a friend for life!

Training:  Housebroken, basic commands
Compatibility: Good with other dogs, cats, older kids.
Activity Level: Active

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skippy, a Scottsdale 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 Scottsdale, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Scottsdale.

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