Dougie's Story...
Rescued Gorgeous 10 month old, Male, Chesapeake Bay Retriever mix

This gorgeous happy go lucky baby boy is high energy & will need an active family that can take him on walks, or play with him in the pool for a minimum of 30 minutes daily. He would be a great dog to go on hikes, boating, or other activities with you. He has a sweet personality & is very intelligent & eager to please. The pictures do not do this baby boy justice. He is absolutely gorgeous. He loves other dogs & just wants to play, play, play! LOVES toys, balls, playing catch, & swimming. If there is more than one ball out at a time, he will try to fit them all in his mouth, it's to funny! He will also entertain himself with a ball or toy, which is fun to just watch. He is eager for attention & just wants to be with you & loved.

Weight at last Vet visit: 46 lbs (but he was very thin when he was turned in & probably weighs more around 55 lbs now. He will probably grow to be between 70-95 lbs)

- To go potty in a certain corner of the yard
- Mailman (to bark when the mail comes)
- Sit
- Lay Down
- Wait
- Ok (This is a command release)
- Come

- No
- Treat

- Back up
- Outside? (if you say this & get a reaction, they need to go outside to go potty)

- To bark when he wants to come inside
- Good boy
- Bad boy

- Stand up
- Ready (alerts them you are about to throw something)
- Water
- Inside (to go in the crate)
- Heal
- Stay

Tested with:
Kids: Great with kids.

Cats: Good with cats. He is very curious about them.

Dogs: YES! Great with ALL sizes. He would LOVE a playmate! He plays with the big dogs a lot, & also a little 8 lb chihuahua that I am also fostering.

Food Aggression: None at all

Crate: He is crate trained & will go right in when asked. He will also bark or whine when he needs to be let out to "go potty"

Car: He loves car rides & loads up easily. He loves to stick his head out the window

Fears: He is scared of new people, but warms up fairly quickly. We are working on that & I have already seen a large improvement

Other issues: Pulls on the leash. We are currently working on this.
(If you are adopting a puppy, all puppies chew. This can be easily managed with rawhide bones to direct their behavior to something that is acceptable to chew on, & crating your puppy when you are unable to monitor them.)

* Safe Haven STRONGLY believes that collars should only be used as decoration. A dog can slip out of collar. Which becomes a problem if your dog gets lost, or you are trying to restrain your dog, & it comes off. Also, attaching a leash to a collar puts pressure on the neck, which is one of the most sensitive areas of the body, & could hurt them. For these reasons, Safe Haven includes a harness with every dog adoption to ensure the safety of the dog, as a harness is more expensive than a collar & some adopters will not buy them for this reason. A harness distributes the weight on the chest & shoulders. It also has a handle on the back that you can grab if need be, without hurting your pet (EX: Dog falls off your boat, just grab the handle & pull your pet back in with no harm done. With a collar, you would have to strangle your dog when pulling your dog in). Also a dog cannot slip out of a harness, so it is much easier to restrain them & they will never loose their ID if they get lost.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dougie, a Litchfield Park Chesapeake Bay Retriever/Golden Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chesapeake Bay Retriever/Golden Retriever for sale in Litchfield Park, or seeking a Chesapeake Bay Retriever/Golden Retriever puppy from a breeder in Litchfield Park.

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