Joey's Info...

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

Joey's Story...
Joey is about eighteen months old and has the enthusiasm of a puppy. He is house broken, crate trained and rides well in a car. Joey lies under the table when we eat and likes to lie near us in the evening. The dog has been neutered and is current on his shots. He had surgery to correct a condition where his lower eye lids turned in and caused his coat to rub on his eyes. The operation was a success. This is a very cute Golden Retriever mix that looks like a three quarter size Golden.
He weights fifty pounds. He loves to be petted and enjoys playing in a rough and tumble way with the other dogs at our house. Joey needs an active family who will spend time with him and continue his training. He is an interesting dog and is fun to work with because he learns quickly. Joey gets along well with two of the dogs (an older male and a middle age female) at my house. He and a new young male are not compatible. The problem appears to be the chemistry between the two dogs and the newly arrived male is quick to over react. So if you have a dog we need to introduce the two dogs before an adoption is confirmed. Joey loves to run and follow his nose so he needs a fenced yard. This young puppy like dog is a wonderful companion animal.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Joey, a Bourg 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 Bourg, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Bourg.

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