Burton's Story...
Burton is a 1-year-old Black Golden mix. Burton came to GRFR with coat full of mats and dreadlocks preventing him from walking or running well. Within 12 hours was at the groomers getting a “summer cut”! He looks and feels AWESOME and has so much more confidence- the tail is still slightly between his legs but it is wagging fast. Burton is very shy at first and stays very close to his foster mother. He is following his foster brothers in and out of the dog door and sleeps with them on the floor next to the bed. He is learning to play with his foster brothers, and shares their toys nicely. Burton is looking for a foster home that can offer him confidence, companionship, love, patience and good food to help with his damaged coat (dry- from old mats). Burton would gain confidence quicker in a home with an easygoing dog. He will need obedience and leash training - he stays right by you but right on your heels. Burton is looking to enjoy the Colorado outdoors!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Burton, a Denver 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 Denver, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Denver.

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