Telly's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Telly's Story...
Wow. Where do I start. My family gave me up and dropped me off at this scary loud place. I was not there very long. A nice man came in to get me and started calling me Telly. I guess I look like Telly the Monster from Sesame Street. I kind of big but I am 100% golden - I will sit on your feet for attention and give you the golden nudge! I am kind of a monster at 122 pounds. The doctor told me that I seemed healthy except my dark red coat is missing in some places - well, truth be told, I scratched it off because it was really itchy. My ears hurt too but they gave me medicine for that I feel much better now. I am 7 years old and I really like children - they make me wiggle and I just want them to play with me. I also like 4-legged friends too. I did have a "seizure" at that scary place but the doctor said everything checked out ok (they stuck a needle in my arm, ouch). But I feel ok, I just want a new family that will take better care of me so I don't itch anymore and I don't have to worry about going to anymore scary places. I promise, you will love me.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Telly, a Foster 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 Foster, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Foster.

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