I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
My name is Rusty. I am about 4 years old and a Golden mix who was found at the Eastside MCACCS Shelter last fall. For the last several weeks, I have been in residence at Partners Dog Training Camp in Cave Creek learning leash manners and such basic obedience commands such as sit, down, heel, stay and come. Sometimes I have had problems with other dogs and with people I don't know, but recently I have been very well behaved in my classes. For my forever home, I would like an individual or couple who have some experience with dog training, so that my training can be continued. I would also like to be an only pet.

Rescue Group Info...
Arizona Golden Rescue is an all-volunteer, non-profit, charitable organization whose mission is to rescue displaced Golden Retrievers and mostly-Golden mixes that may have been abused, abandoned, neglected or unwanted or surrendered by their owners due to previously unforeseen circumstances, and find new, permanent homes for them. Rescued dogs are given a complete veterinary exam and their vaccines are updated; they are also microchipped, spayed or neutered, and tested for valley fever and heartworm. AGR provides emotional and medical rehabilitation and will pay for medications and for necessary surgeries. Through education at public appearances, AGR seeks to educate the public about the Golden Retriever breed and about responsible dog ownership, in order to help reduce the unwanted dog population.
Dates and times of regular meet-and-greets are shown on the Events Calendar on our Website.
Please note that all adoptable dogs remain on the website until their adoptions are finalized. As hard as we try to screen the adoptable dogs and their new potential "Forever Home", there is always the possibility that the FWITA (Foster With Intent To Adopt) and the adoptable dog are not compatible and then the dog would return to adoptable status"
