Nate's Story...
Hi, my name is Nate; I am a 3 year old neutered male Golden Retriever/mix. I have a very sweet and loving personality once you get to know me. I had a rough time socializing with my family and their other dog Riley at first because I was defensive and very skittish. After working with my foster mom for a few weeks, I am no longer mean or snarly towards Riley. I have become a great part of the family. I do wonderful with cats and especially enjoy getting hugs and kisses from children.

I am still very shy around strangers; I will bark and sometimes back away or not let them come near me. I make a good watch dog; I will bark and let you know if anyone or anything is outside. I am very vocal and will bark to let you know if I need anything or if I just want your attention.

I do very well in car rides and enjoy a long walk. If given the chance, I have the tendency to try to get of the house and run around the neighborhood, if I am not walked on a daily basis. I am capable of jumping over short fences and I have dug a tunnel under the fence to get out of the back yard. Because of this I am kept on a run in the back yard or I only get to run around by myself outside if someone is out there to watch me. Long periods of time outside alone won't be good for me.

I do not know how to play fetch but I love toys, especially ones that squeak. I love when my foster family shows me attention and plays with me. I do very well when left alone in the house, but I will sometimes sneak up on the couch to take a nap when you are not looking.

I am looking for the perfect family that is going to be patient and gentle with me. One who will show me attention, spend quality time with me and love me unconditionally. I promise I will be an amazing addition to your family!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nate, a Yorktown 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 Yorktown, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Yorktown.

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