    This is Norman and he's a golden retriever/australian shepherd mix he'll be a year old June 27th. He is not neutered nor is he potty trained; my boyfriend and I saved him from being neglected, his old owners before us never bothered to take care of him, didn't train him, barely fed him, barely gave him water, he weighs about 25 pounds when he should weigh at least 40; he's amazing with other dogs, very playful, great with kids from what we know so far, he loves to give kisses, he does bark a lot if he's left alone outside. He has his rabie shots. We would love to keep him but one of our other dogs does not get along with him. He needs a home ... (Read More)where someone will take the time and have patience with him enough to potty train him. Neuturing is completely up to whomever adopts him. He will come with a collar and leash, a bag of treats and any food that is left over for him. I'm asking 250 because that's what we paid and we want him going to a home that will give him the love and attention he deserves. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Golden Retriever in Illinois
    Golden Retriever Dogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. The Golden Retriever is a gundog that loves the water. Originally bred for hunting, Goldens make wonderful family pets. Golden Retrievers are very sweet, patient, gentle, and excellent with children. Goldens are eager to please and respond very well to obedience training. Goldens make good watchdogs but are far too friendly with everyone, from strangers to other dogs, to be used as guard dogs. Goldens need human companionship. They can get into trouble if neglected. This breed is suitable for homes with yards, and needs plenty of brisk daily exercise.
