Duke's Info...

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

Duke's Story...
Duke is a 5 yr old Purebred Male. Unfortunately Duke has some medical issues primarily concerning his ears. Duke will be on medical hold for the next few weeks while he undergoes treatment for his ears and begins his heartworm treatment process. Please check back for updates.

Duke tested positive for heartworm and will receive treatment when he arrives in Colorado. He will need to be kept calm and quiet, with no running or playing for a full month following each heartworm treatment. Duke will also need a follow up bloodtest in 6 months. Both his treatment and his bloodtest are paid for by GRFR at one of our contracted vets. Duke's forever family will need to be sure he takes a monthly heartworm preventative year round. Some people might be leery of a dog like Duke who has had heartworm, but there is no need to be. It is both curable and preventable.

For more information, please take a look at Please review the adoption requirements before submitting an online application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Duke, 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.
