Chet's Story...
This Golden Retriever was brought in through Okotoks Bylaw and even though he had ID, it has proven to be a dead end. Chet is friendly to people and cats, but a bit hesitant to play with the other dogs still. He's also booked into for the once over mid next week by our local clinic including x-rays as he has a bit of lameness in the back leg. UPDATE: It would appear Chet has had 2 big surgeries on his back legs, and our x-ray this week showed noticable arthritis on his back right and starting on his left. We're going to try Metacam to help control any discomfort and vet recommended supplements. UPDATE: Chet is truly a people dog! He is at his friendliest and happiest around people. We've called in a trainer, however, to help him get past his dog to dog issues.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chet, a High River 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 High River, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in High River.

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