Story
Duke is a wonderful energetic dog, he’s 2 yrs old and is the most loveable dog I’ve ever met, I have to rehome him due to fights with our other two dogs, he’s good with any other dogs I’ve ever had him around. Great with kids and house trained. I just want him to go to home he can grow with as a family. He does jump when he’s super excited and he’s a bigger dog so just watch for that, thank you.

Story
Chase is a 3 year old AKC registered golden retriever. He has LOTS of energy. Our family just welcomed home a new baby (our 3rd) and unfortunately we are not able to give Chase the time and attention he deserves. He does very well “heeling” while walking on a leash. He has always had a large fenced in yard to run in. I think the ideal family for him would be a 1 or 2 dog family with lots of time devoted to loving and caring for him.
