Rugby's Story...
Are you my new forever family? Woof woof, my name is Rugby (at least that seems to be the name my foster mom calls me, I’m still trying to remember to come when she says “Rugby”). A wonderful and kind lady from Illinois found me wandering around and took very good care of me until the nice people at Love a Golden rescued me. I’m about 6 years old, but I’m much bigger than my two golden foster sisters. My foster Mom says I’m a gentle giant and that I am a big handsome boy. I am learning to stay in my crate while my foster Mom goes to work and it’s not too bad once I got used to it. My favorite time is when my foster Mom sits in the swing in the backyard and lets me lay by her feet. I like being close to her in case she decides she wants to pet me! I’m looking for a nice family to love for the rest of my years. Until then, my foster family is letting me relax at their house while I recover from heartworms and they say I’ll be better real soon and ready to meet my forever family! Oh by the way I am told I am stubborn but learning to be a good boy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rugby, a St Louis 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 St Louis, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in St Louis.

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