Abbey's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and not good with cats.

Abbey's Story...
My name is Abbey and I need a special family that will be patient but most importantly provide me a calm, structured life. I thrive on knowing the rules of the house and the rules being applied consistently by everyone in my home.
I started my life in a backyard with two senior Golden Retrievers. I had no guidance so when I acted like a puppy with the older dogs; I was chained to a kennel so I would not bother them. In my critical formative age, I was not exposed to a lot of the things necessary to build my confidence so now everything seems scary to me. I love being around people so much that I can be overly enthusiastic in demanding attention. I am afraid of being left alone so I need someone that is willing to slowly work with me on realizing they are really coming back.
I am a very smart dog and definitely willing to learn. I have started clicker training and once I understand what you are asking of me, I am a whiz. Some of my problem is I am too smart, mainly street smart.
My ideal home is one with no children or cats. I may like another dog if it was older and mellow but would definitely need an introduction. I cannot be crated as this is terrifying to me and I will injure myself trying to get out of a confined space so I prefer someone that is home most of the time.
If you think you are willing to work with me, please email adoptions@azgrc.org and ask about me.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Abbey, 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.
