9.5 year old neutered male Golden/Labrador Retriever mix [69 pounds] This poor boy had one heck of a rough start and has been here a very long time getting physically and behaviorally healthy. Barley came to us as a Southern transport whose owner was moving and could not take him. He was in rough physical shape and came in heartworm positive with an infected scrotal ablation from a neuter surgery and both ears actively infected and extremely painful. His owner history portrayed a mellow dog who would greet visitors with a lick, did not guard his food and had only growled when having his painful ears cleaned but loved brushing. Unfortunately the combination of the stress of losing his home, being transported and his several physical challenges caused Barley to behave very differently here at the shelter than he was described in his home. Thankfully for this dear dog, YGRR was willing to invest in his medical and behavioral health. His scrotal infection has long since cleared, his ears are clean and healthy and he currently shows no signs of allergies, He completed his second and final heartworm treatment on 4/22/16 and should just need a recheck in October. The handling, stranger and guarding issues Barley was presenting with have all improved dramatically thanks to the behavior modification efforts of Staff and our wonderful Behavior Director. Barley has truly touched the hearts of all the Staff here. He is a sweet, mellow boy who likes to be pet and enjoys all the gentle affection he receives. Don't let our references of mellow fool you, Barley has been known to rip it up outside with his silly antics as he joyfully plays with toys and indulgies in adorable 'zoomies'. He loves to play fetch and has a soft spot for squeaky toys! Barley is looking for a patient, compassionate and experienced home that will continue the training support we have provided here. CHILDREN: Adults only. DOGS: Best as only dog; possibly could live with/enjoy the company of a calm female. Barley is not a candidate for dog parks or doggy daycare. CATS: No known history; can provide a cat assessment for a strong adoption candidate. HOUSETRAINING: Has been 100% perfect in his kennel here! SPECIAL NEEDS: Completed heartworm treatment on 4/22/16 and will be on restricted activity (no racing around but calm walks OK) until 7/22/16. Will need a heartworm recheck in Oct 2016. TRAINING NEEDS: YGRR will provide a free pre-adoption Behavior Consult to help an adopter continue the behavior modification support which has helped Barley to thrive. ADOPTION FEE: $300. (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Golden Retriever in Massachusetts|
Golden Retriever Dogs can make good pets in Massachusetts 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.
