    Default Wanted: Golden Retriever

    Iím looking for a Golden Retriever preferably between 4-8 years old that is good with kids. It would be nice if the dog is housebroken, but itís not a requirement.

    Weíve been checking various sites for rescues, but Goldens donít seem to turn up very often. Most of the ones we have found have an issue that makes them unfit for a home with small kids. Please send me a PM if you come across one. Iím willing to travel within 7 hours or so of Columbia for the right dog.

    Good luck! If I see anything, I will let you know
    I was looking for one a month or two ago and Smilee helped me find a great 9 month old dog that needed a good home.
    Love this guy

    That's a great looking pup you've got there, ecu1984.

    Tigerbdog, while in your case it's disappointing that there are so many fewer Goldens available for adoption now, it's actually good news overall. Not too many years ago there were so many "backyard-bred" Goldens being dropped at shelters and surrendered to rescue groups they were being shipped out of state just to find them homes. FHGRR used to adopt out 12-15 dogs a month!

    While there are none shown on the web page, I'll make a contact and see if there are any in their foster system that haven't been promised or advertised yet and let you know.

    Good luck in your search, and thanks for looking for a older dog. Of our eight Goldens since '92, seven were adopted, and the ages of six of them ranged from three to twelve years old. All were great indoor pets and companions, with the first two being solid hunters.

    Thanks, WoodieSC. I'm glad to hear the number of Goldens up for adoption has dramatically decreased. On the flip side, I would not want to be a Pit Bull in my next life. It seems like 90% of the dogs available on various sites are Pit Bulls or have some Pit in them.

    I completely agree on the Pit Bull concern. I'm amazed and appalled at the the numbers I see. It's the current craze.

    Tigerbdog, just letting you know that I haven't gotten a response yet, which is highly unusual as I normally get one within hours. Will follow up and keep you posted.

    A litter was just posted on hunt secretary.
    I’m by no means suggesting a pup from here, as I know nothing about the breeder, but there are pups on the ground....good luck

    Appreciate the tip, Ramblin Rooster, but pups are out of the question at this point. Looking for an adult dog.

    Tigerbdog, there are no dogs available at this time, but that could change at any time. I'd suggest you put an application in and get approved if you're interested. That would get your name and criteria on the table and you can always say 'No'.

    Let me know if you have any questions about FHGRR.

    Good luck.

    I didn’t read all of the comments so just ignore if someone has already suggested this, but look up “Grand Strand Golden Retriever Rescue” on Facebook. They might be able to help you out.
