"GENTLE BEN"'s Story...
"GENTLE BEN"-- OUR GOLDEN BOY--WOW!!! ONE GORGEOUS FELLOW!!! BEN'S STORY***WE RECEIVED AN URGENT CALL FROM BEN'S OWNER ASKING FOR OUR HELP. SHE WAS HAVING TO MOVE AND WHERE SHE WAS MOVING SHE WAS NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO TAKE BEN WITH HER. SHE WAS ABSOLUTELY HEARTBROKEN HAVING TO MAKE THIS DECISION TO GIVE BEN UP. BEN HAD BEEN A PART OF HER LIFE SINCE HE WAS A SIX WEEK OLD WIGGLY, BOUNCY PUP. "HE IS A WONDERFUL DOG, MY BEST FRIEND AND I LOVE HIM" SHE TOLD US. "PLEASE FIND HIM A GREAT HOME WHERE HE WILL BE LOVED AS MUCH AS I LOVE HIM" OUR COMMENT "WE WILL". BEN IS A BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL, THREE YEAR OLD, 75 POUND, GOLDEN RETRIEVER/YELLOW LABRADOR RETRIEVER MIX, TWO GREAT BREEDS, ONE OUTSTANDING PUP. IF YOU PUT TOGETHER A WISH LIST OF EVERY TRAIT THAT YOU WOULD EVER WANT IN A COMPANION CHANCES ARE IT WOULD BE BEN. THE FIRST THING THAT WILL CATCH YOUR EYE IS WHAT A BEAUTIFUL GUY HE IS. HIS COAT IS A WARM, RICH, GLEAMING, HONEY COLOR(THUS HIS NICKNAME "GOLDEN BOY") SO SHINY IT LOOKS LIKE BEN JUST JUMPED OUT OF A BIG POOL OF WATER AND BEING A COMBINATION OF TWO WATER LOVING BREEDS THIS IS A STRONG POSSIBILITY. HIS COAT FEELS LIKE VELVET, SO FLAWLESS IT LOOKS LIKE AN ARTIST HAND PAINTED THIS PUP. YOU WILL WANT TO PAT AND RUB BEN ALL DAY WHICH AS MUCH AS HE LOVES AFFECTION AND ATTENTION IS JUST FINE IN HIS BOOK. HE IS ALSO A BEAUTIFULLY BUILT GUY WITH PERFECT, BODY CONFIRMATION HAVING THE CLASSIC LABRADOR "BLOCK" HEAD. HIS EYES WILL ABSOLUTELY MAKE YOU MELT. THEY ARE SOME OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WE HAVE SEEN. THEY ARE A RICH, GOLDEN COLOR AND SPARKLE LIKE A MILLION STARS WHEN BEN FIRST SEES YOU. NOT ONLY IS BEN A BEAUTIFUL FELLOW JUST WAIT TIL YOU MEET HIM NOW THE FUN BEGINS. HE IS OUR TRUE "LIFE IS GOOD" PUP. FROM THE MINUTE THOSE SPARKLING EYES POP OPEN IN THE MORNING TIL HE PLOPS ON HIS BIG FLUFFY BED AT NIGHT ALL TIRED OUT FROM A DAY OF PLAY BEN IS HAPPY 24/7 AND LET'S YOU KNOW IT. EVERYDAY IS A HOLIDAY AS FAR AS BEN IS CONCERNED. THIS PEOPLE LOVING GUY ADORES EVERYONE HE MEETS, NEVER MEETS A STRANGER AND ALL DOGS SMALL, MEDIUM OR LARGE JUST A NEW BUDDY FOR BEN TO ROMP AND PLAY WITH AND BEN CAN ROMP AND PLAY WITH THE BEST OF THEM. BEN IS THE TYPE OF PUP WHO'S WORLD CENTERS AROUND HIS FAMILY. A DELIGHTFUL FAMILY COMPANION WHO ONLY WANTS TO BELONG, THIS IS THE ONLY LIFE BEN HAS EVER KNOWN, THE LIFE HE DESERVES TO KNOW AGAIN. ANYTHING YOUR DAY CALLED FOR IS FINE WITH BEN, JUST TAKE HIM ALONG. HE IS ONE OF THE HAPPIEST PUPS WE HAVE SEEN AND LIVES UP TO EVERT TRAIT THAT MAKES THE GOLDEN RETRIEVER AND LABRADOR TRUE FAMILY COMPANIONS. HE WOULD LOVE A "LET'S GO" OWNER AND WOULD BE A GREAT ADDITION TO THE LIVES OF AN ACTIVE COUPLE, SINGLE GUY OR GIRL OR A FAMILY WITH OLDER CHILDREN WHO ARE WANTING A NEW BEST FRIEND. A FAMILY THAT TAKES TO THE OUTDOORS ON THE WEEKENDS HIKING, JOGGING OR OFF TO THEIR CABIN IN THE MOUNTAINS SO BEN COULD RUN, EXPLORE NEW TRAILS, SWIM IN A LAKE, JUST ENJOYING THE DAY, ENJOYING LIFE!!! THIS PUP IS IN EXCEPTIONAL SHAPE AND WOULD ALSO BE A TERRIFIC WALKING OR JOGGING BUDDY. BEN WALKS BEAUTIFULLY ON LEAD, AND WILL MATCH YOU STEP FOR STEP, IF BEN IS WITH YOU HE'S HAPPY!!!! NOT ONLY IS BEN A BEAUTIFUL, EXTREMELY HAPPY PUP NOW LET'S ADD SMART TO THE MIX, AND BOY IS HE. IN FACT DON'T SHOW BEN A BALL UNLESS YOU HAVE TIME TO PLAY HIS FAVORITE GAME "FETCH". BEN WILL RETRIEVE "HIS" BALL, BRING IT BACK, DROP IT AND GIVE YOU HIS "THROW IT ONE MORE TIME " LOOK. BEN WILL PLAY BALL UNTIL YOU OR YOUR ARM GIVES OUT. HE ALSO KNOWS THE COMMAND "SIT" HE WILL SIT, OFFER YOU HIS PAW AS IF HE'S SAYING "HI, I'M BEN, NICE TO MEET YOU", A PUP WHO DELIGHT IN PLEASING. HE IS A TRUE "OPEN BOOK" READY TO LEARN AND EXCEL IN ANYTHING YOU WANT TO TEACH HIM. HE IS A PUP WHO IS ALERT, INQUISITIVE, VERY AWARE OF WHAT IS GOING ON AROUND HIM. HE FINDS ANYTHING YOU INTRODUCE HIM TO INTERESTING AND A CHALLENGE. THE SKY'S THE LIMIT FOR BEN. IF YOU WOULD REVIEW YOUR CHECK LIST ABOUT WHAT TRAITS YOU ARE LOOKING FOR IN A COMPANION PUP AND AFTER READING ABOUT BEN WE THINK YOU'LL AGREE THAT HE HAS EVERY TRAIT YOU HAD CHECKED ON YOU LIST.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

"GENTLE BEN", a Pawling Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever for sale in Pawling, or seeking a Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Pawling.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Pawling 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 Pawling 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/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Pawling paves the way for another one to be saved.
