Samson's Story...
Hi there – I’m Samson! My foster mom says I sure am handsome. I don’t know about that – all I know is I love being part of a family. I was picked up as a stray by a high-kill shelter and the nice rescue saved me. The vet thinks I am about 8 months old and a small golden mix. I currently only weigh 25 lbs – so I won’t get to be too big. I love my furry foster brothers and sisters and play great with them. My foster mom says I’ve also been doing really well on a leash, though like any young pup I could benefit from obedience training. She says I’m not 100% housebroken – but I’m doing really well with very few accidents. I cry a little bit in my crate – but do fine in there while my foster family is at work. I will go right into my crate at meal times too. I’ve learned this is a safe place and I’m getting more and more comfortable there. My foster mom says I’m very soft and cuddly. I just love having a family to love me – though I know this isn’t my forever home – I do know my very own forever home is out there. Is it with you?? If so, please email for an application. (FOR)

Our dogs are mainly fostered in TN at our parent rescues . We have many wonderful dogs looking for homes! All of them are completely vetted and neutered/spayed (if age appropriate) and on heartworm protection. All of them come with complete medical records. Their adoption fee of $425 covers their complete age appropriate vetting and heartworm preventative as well as their transportation to your area.
Our rescue doesn't have an actual shelter building in the Maine area. Due to this it is not possible to meet them prior to their adoption. Our dogs are brought up to their new owners weekly! We have a 14 day no questions asked money back guarantee and the dog can be returned to us if things don't work out. We try hard to get good matches in our homes so that everyone has a happy life together! To date we have placed over a thousand dogs and puppies in loving homes from Tennessee clear up to Canada!
We have many, many, references of happy adopters up in your area that can fill you in on their experience. Just email and we can pass along that information for your convenience.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Samson, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Portland.

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