Morrison's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Morrison's Story...
Morrison is a great Golden/Lab Retriever mix. He is 5 years old. His loving foster dad checked in and writes:

Now that Morrison and I have spent a bit more time together I thought I'd send in an update on his behalf. What to say about this beautiful boy . . . well what isn't there to say? Upon beginning his experience with GRFR, he was a bit timid - you could tell that he had been through a lot and would take some time to trust his new family. Having him in foster care for nearly 3 weeks now, he is already starting to let his guard down. And what a wonderful sight it is! He isn't as afraid of strangers . . . even going up to them with a grin and wagging tail. Heck, he even made his first debut on Channel 9 News, smiling oh so perfectly for the camera!

Dog friendly, you ask? Well of course! In fact, he has just recently found out how much fun it is to play with another four legged friend -- his previous foster sibling. Now he cannot get enough of that play time with that furry companion! "Bring on that play time!," he'd say. Of course, he enjoys his time with us human folk . . . a cuddler you could say as he wants to be in contact with one point of your body -- by your leg or with his chin by your hand -- at all times .

Coming in to rescue as a stray, Morrison is beginning to learn the ropes of the household - including basic manners. And for this reason, he is searching for that forever home willing to put in the extra effort for some training. He promises you won't regret it as he is quite the quick learner and will jump at any opportunity to bond with you! Since he is a bit on the skittish side, he asks that his forever home have dog savvy children over the age of 12. In that forever home of his, he'd love to have another dog sibling - not a requirement but definitely a plus! Now, wouldn't you love to offer this guy a loving and stable forever family home!

**************************
Many Golden lovers are not aware of how doomed black dogs, like Morrison, are when they are brought into the average animal shelter. Even "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

Morrison, a Denver Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever for sale in Denver, or seeking a Golden Retriever/Labrador 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/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Denver paves the way for another one to be saved.
