Tyler's Story...
Meet Tyler! His foster family is smitten, and you will be too. They tell us:

This smiling, soft, and silky coated Golden Retriever mix, Tyler, is 56 pounds of pure Golden-hearted love. Just over a year old, he exudes sweetness and loyalty. Tyler will bond very quickly with you in his forever home, and be your loving friend for life. In the early mornings, he cannot wait to snuggle and share doggy kisses. . . we are talking velcro-Golden! Wherever his foster mom is, Tyler is right there too. Tyler latches onto his toys, too...proudly carrying them around. He plays with his foster puppy brother. Of course he loves to chase balls, cherishing each and every one that one that he gets.

Tyler has good house manners, and can be left to free roam in the house during your times when he cannot come along and you are out and about. He is great at dog doors, too in case you have one of those -- not a necessity at all for Tyler.

He would love to go to doggy school with you and be your training bud to master all of the basics and beyond. You will find that he is quite a smart fellow. Socialization is very important for him, and he has been picking up clues on how to be a family member from his foster siblings. Sometimes it is difficult for younger rescues who have been on their own as strays to learn how to mingle comfortably with other dogs, but Tyler is doing real well, acclimating to pack life with loving guidance from his foster parents and doggy sibs, " Good boy, Tyler!"

Tyler reports, "I love, love, love my foster home, where I have made myself right at home. Going on daily walks is the best, always sticking with my pack and getting rewarded with my fair share of treats. My foster mom sure appreciates my soft mouth for treats. You surely want to know that my favorite treats are little cheese pieces and my very own can of tuna - the absolute best! And car rides with you . . . oh, yeah! So much fun! And I am always ready to go to the dog park with you! So, let's get going . . . apply, mention me and those busy GRFR volunteers will be in touch. With some luck we may get to meet and become family!"

Please note: Tyler needs a forever family without kitty cats.

Many Golden lovers are not aware of how doomed black dogs, like young Tyler, are when they are brought into the average animal shelter. Even our "Black Goldens," as we call our wonderful mixes often suffer such a fate. You and GRFR are part of the solution.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tyler, 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.
