Puck's Story...
Hi, my name is Puck and I am a 2 year old Golden Retriever Mix with an all Golden Retriever personality. I was saved from the shelter, where I was on the list to be put to sleep because, “I walked funny” Well the reason I walked funny was I had something called a patellar luxation which are big fancy words meaning my knee cap would pop in and out. On July 27th, I had surgery to repair my knee. The surgery went really well and my prognosis is good. For the next six weeks (August 31st, yes I am counting the days) I am not allowed to run, jump, swim, climb stairs or do any strenuous exercise.  I should not play with other pets and cannot be loose in the house.

So now you know about my surgery, here is a little bit about me. I love toys particularly tennis balls. I also have a cool chew toy that I can sit for hours and chew on.  I met other dogs before my surgery and did fine but since my surgery, I have not been allowed to interact with other dogs. I am a good car rider particularly if there is a tennis ball to toss around in the car. Did I mention I LOVE tennis balls? I would love to go for long walks or a hike but again right now I am not allowed.  I also love people and I am content to hang out with them and give them some love. Do you notice a theme? Love, I am just a big “love bug”.   I know sit and will take a treat very gently. I am housebroken and will bark to let you know that I need to go outside. I am young, so I will need some training but I have the basics down and I am a really smart dog.

Right now I am at a temporary foster hanging out in “Grandma’s bedroom” When I go outside I have to be on a leash so I do not over do it. Because it feels so good to have my knee fixed, I would definitely run around if I didn’t have that stupid leash on.  My foster family can only keep me a short time, so I am desperately looking for another foster or even better, my forever family.
Please consider me. Not to brag but I am a great dog.

* Our policy is that we will not place Golden Retrievers under the age of 3 with families that have children that are 3 or less years of age. Young Golden Retrievers can be very excitable around young children, so we recommend older Goldens for families with very young children.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Puck, 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.
