Duffy's Story...
DUFFY... Golden Retriever 8+ years old. This "golden oldie" was found in a dump !  He was then taken to a "shelter" where for 2 months he stayed in some pretty bad surroundings and recieved no medical attention. When he came into Keeper Rescue he was emaciated, filthy, matted and flea infested.  He couldn't walk very far and had no muscle tone. He had hook, whip, round and tape worms.  He is hearing impaired.  Since he has been with us he has been making steady progress and is now ready for his forever home.  Duffy has been putting some weight on and is building up his muscles. He has been wormed, vetted and cleaned up.  Duffy is very loving and loves people.  He enjoys walks (for the exercise and for sniffing of course) and rides in the car.  He has learned to play fetch and loves his tennis ball.  We are looking for a calmer home with a mature person(s) who can devote themselves to this sweet boy and enjoy all the love he will give.  We would prefer that he be the only dog so that he can get all the attention and love....If you have room in your heart and your home for a gentle, sweet soul please contact Keeper Rescue at telling them about yourself and where you live.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Duffy, a Fort Hunter 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 Fort Hunter, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Fort Hunter.

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