Golden Retriever    Age: Adult

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament

    Meet Rusty, a 5 to 7 year old puppy! I have had a tough life; no one trained me or taught me house manners until I met WAGS, With a Golden Spirit, golden retriever rescue and my foster family. I lived on the streets in WV for a while. Now I am full of energy, love and enthusiasm for life. I am learning my manners and have not had a single accident in the house for 2 weeks! I still need a lot of training. I listen a little but my butt starts wiggling when you talk to me and it just takes over my whole body and I jump for joy! I still puppy-mouth your hands and they are training me not to do that. I will still need work on that. They are ... (Read More)teaching me things to calm me down but WAGS told me I will need formal training classes with other dogs to learn how to listen without distraction. Speaking of other dogs; I LOVE THEM! There is not anything more fun than getting everyone to chase me like the video shows! I love people, I love kids but I have not been around a cat to know if I love them. I have learned to behave myself and use a crate every day when my foster people are out. I need to walk using a harness AND my martingale collar since I never learned to walk quietly on a leash. BUT I WILL LEARN! I love throwing toys, playing tug of war and generally I am completely like Velcro and stick by you asking for attention all the time. I probably have some other breed in me besides Golden but my personality is ALL GOLDEN! I never have growled, snarled or acted like I was mean. I only like to get love and give love. They told me I was malnourished when I arrived at 38 pounds. My coat is very poor because I didn't have proper food in my past. I am now about 47 pounds but I will always be small. I need a lot of supplements daily to help my coat return to a soft normal texture. My ears really hurt when I arrived at WAGS but they took me to the vet several times and applied the right medicines. I will need my ears cleaned once a week for life and checked regularly for infection. If you are looking for a boy who loves to play, loves to learn and loves his people then consider me. I promise to always love you and hope you will do the same. I never want to be abandoned again! Rusty is neutered, UTD on vaccinations and HW & Lymes tested as negative. Rusty's Foster Home Added this: Rusty is lovable and loves attention. He loves to sit on your lap and fall asleep. He loves to fetch balls and rope. He likes to chew on his toys, but doesn't destroy them. He loves to run around. He enjoys playing with other dogs, big or small. He seldom barks and if he gets too excited and barks at another dog, he responds to leave it and will stop barking. He loves to eat. He eats and sleeps well in a crate. He responds to come if you want him to come back to you. He walks pretty good on a leash, he is still learning. When he gets really excited, he dances with his front paws while sitting and waiting for a treat or for you to pet him. He loves to have his fur brushed, he just lays on the floor very patiently. He is house broken and has had no accidents since he has been in our house. He loves to go outside, we just need to be careful at the door as he gets so excited to go out he forgets to wait for you to be ready for him to go outside. He loves to sit and lay down, responds well to both commands. He loves to ride in a car, he lays down on the back seat for most of the trip. If you are interested in adopting an orphan from WAGS please look at these requirements. 1. We are small and can only service SW PA near Pittsburgh. 2. You must agree to continue aggressive vet care and proper inoculations and monthly flea & tick and heart worm preventatives 12 months a year. 3. A fenced yard is required. 4. At least 6 sessions of formal class training with other dogs is required. 5. Rusty requires 1 1500mg Glucosamine/Chondroitin, 4000mg fish oil daily and 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in each meal. 6. Once weekly ear cleaning with a vet approved flushing. 7. The minimum donation requested is $300 but more is recommended to cover his expenses to the rescue. 8.

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-16-00272Princess (female)

Golden Retriever    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Princess is a 4 year old, cream-colored, pocket sized golden retriever! Her foster family describes her as a playful, loving little girl who is extremely affectionate and loves to be next to your side. When Princess first arrived her personality was very much of a puppy that clearly was not house-trained and had been given very little structure in her prior home. In six short weeks, this little girl has had tremendous improvement. She is now almost 100% housebroken (very rare accidents now) and her personality has much developed into a typical ''golden retriever.'' She now understands ''boundaries'' and is learning what she can and cannot ... (Read More)play with. She is now able to ''relax'' as when she was first brought into her foster home she was confused on how to be a dog. She has also gained patience and will nicely lay under the table when you are eating. She has adapted to a schedule and absolutely LOVES her dog toys. For being just shy of 5, this gal loves to play! She at times is still very much puppy-like and loves throwing her stuffed toys around or playing tug of war. Princess loves going for walks and still needs to enhance her walking and focus skills. Her foster family is working on her staying calm as other dogs pass her. Princess is an extremely loving dog even after being chained outside to a shed for so long. She is completely content with sitting next to the couch and being petted. She will follow you around the house to remind you that she is right there by your side. She has become quite fond of her dog bed and at night when she is ready, goes and lays on it whether you are in the room or not! Due to her lack of structure when she first arrived, she had become adapted to a crate. Her foster family no longer needs to lock her into the crate when they are not home, but they do still confide her into a room. Princess is working on tricks such as ''sit, stay and paw.'' Princess arrived to WAGS with some medical issues due to her prior environment. She was surrendered with severe skin dermatitis on her belly, chest and legs. She had ear infections in both ears and was underweight. It was also later discovered that she has sight impairments in both eyes as well as cataracts. Princess has had 3 checkups since her arrival to WAGS and is continuing to show amazing improvement. Her skin was first extremely red, itchy, carried a scent and produced extreme shedding/dandruff. She was initially on Prednisone and was extremely uncomfortable. She required and is still receiving medicated baths every two days, and the improvement has been tremendous. At this time, we do not know how long these baths will continue. Her new owner will need to understand that her skin dermatitis will still be an ongoing treatment and will need to be monitored. This gal has very much adapted to her baths and does them with no struggle at all. Her diet consists of dry food only, Natural Balance venison and potato, as golden retrievers are known for their allergies and unfortunately, it is hard to pinpoint exactly why the dermatitis initially began. Princess's weight has improved (she is approx. 48lbs) and she no longer has any ear infections. Her foster family had begun to notice that at times, it seemed Princess was not spotting them immediately when she walked into a room. WAGS wanted to be completely thorough and took her to the PVSEC ophthalmology department to be examined. It was discovered that Princess has Wandering Nystagmus meaning her eyes are unable to fixate on an object. Treatment is not an option. But she has accommodated her own condition and does well. She also was diagnosed with PPMs (Persistent Pupillary Membranes) remnants of blood vessels that never fully dissolved from the eye when she was a puppy. This led to Princess having 30% cataracts in each of her eyes. Surgery is unfortunately not an option for her. Princess does get by fine and always will, but this is a matter that a potential adopter will need to understand, accept and continue care. Her foster family has completely fallen in love with this gal! She has gone through a ton in her 4 short years. She would do fantastic with a family who will have the ability to provide the time and love that she needs and deserves. Princess seems good w/ small children and cats and has done fantastic with her foster dog brother. If you are interested in an adoption of Princess here is the process and requirements; 1. You must live in SW PA 2. She would do well with older respectful children 3. She needs someone who is home during the day, in and out during the day or a dog walker. 4. Her medical care for skin, ear and eye care that includes medication and office visits must be continued. 5. We request a minimum donation of $300 but please consider more due to all the medical and behavioral expenses the rescue incurs. 6. If all of these are agreeable contact for an application. Please describe her new life in your email. (Less)

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