Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    If anyone deserves a second chance, it's Chance. This handsome guy with the gorgeous caramel-and cream colored coat and warm brown eyes was a staff favorite. Chance is a little timid around newcomers but once he gets to know you he'll warm your heart with his love. He's a bouncy, smiley 2-year-old boy who's still in that goofy, 'My feet are too big!' stage, and he'd love a home with other dogs and some dog-loving kids to play with. Here's what his foster mom says about him: 'Chance is very sweet and affectionate and there's not an aggressive bone in his body. Chance likes squeekies, gentle on his feet, walks very well on leash, ... (Read More)travels very well in the car, likes to put head in paw in lap, takes treats gently, loves to play fetch. Puppyish in spirit. Plays beautifully with my dog- Good around children. Chance is already neutered and chipped and he is up-to-date on his vaccinations so he is all set to go! Chance is available through Almost Home Dog Rescue in Doylestown, PA. Contact Jay Tee. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-08-00256Maya (female)

Golden Retriever    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Would you like to meet a sweet, Velcro, obedient and youthful Golden, then meet young Maya a spayed, micro chipped female. Her DOB is 2/2/11. She has incredible energy and also offers sweet loving gratitude for paying attention to her. She loves to toss her own toys in the air, play fetch and never give them back, and snuggle next to you when you allow. She is housebroken, intelligent and a people pleaser. She rides well in the car but is somewhat nervous getting in or out. She rarely barks and almost immediately embraces a stranger. She is good with children but too exuberant for an infant or toddler in the house. She is a timid girl, ... (Read More)easily startled by loud noises and timid about new environments she encounters. She is a 'leaner', leaning against your thigh for protection and security. She knows very rudimentary commands but must be enrolled in obedience classes since she pulls on leash and is known to run away as an escape artist. She also requires a fenced yard and requires a homelife that will offer her daily walks rain or shine. She has developed a thyroid issue easily treatable with meds and blood level checks. She would do well with another dog that enjoys the company of dogs ; one that isn't jealous or grouchy with her getting attention. She was placed with WAGS by a very loving family who's circumstances changed significantly. If you want a very active girl who loves chasing her toys or tail, then Maya is a possibility for you. Her requirements are: daily walks, a fenced yard, willing to keep blood levels checked according to vet requirements, a minimum of 8 obedience classes in a group setting, no infants or toddlers and must be a resident of SW PA or nearby. To apply to adopt any of our Goldens requires an application approval process. Email if you wish to fill out an application. As a 501c3 charity for Goldens we request a minimum donation of $300 but also encourage you to offer an even larger donation to cover the costly medical and behavioral expenses we incur. Approval Process: 1. A properly filled out, scanned and emailed application 2. A reference check with your vet that is successful 3. Other references as needed 4. An interview that is successful 5. A home visit with all who live under the same roof that is successful 6. A meet & greet with adoptee at foster home (including all pets) that is successful 7. A signed agreement. We wish we could handle long distance adoptions. We are too small to do the processes listed above. If you live outside our area look on this site for a golden rescue near you. With A Golden Spirit or WAGS is a 501c3 not for profit Charity for Goldens. 'We don't Just Rescue their Body, We Rescue their Spirit' UPDATE: 1/21/15 Maya hurt her back right leg 3 times since we have had her at the rescue. Each time was because she played too hard and rough with another dog. We took her to an ortho vet. She has a mild case of stretched or damaged ligaments in her right rear knee. She also has slight indications of hip dysplasia but that is less pronounced. Here is what the vet said: Assessment: Cruciate ligament laxity, right leg mild Maya's requirements have changed to mild exercise 12 weeks AFTER she is healed from either physical therapy or surgery plus physical therapy. She is no longer encouraged to be a joggers dog or play with another dog aggressively. The vet recommends progressively longer walks are in order in order to keep her in shape and even gentle jogging on earthen paths but not cement or asphalt once she is healed. Exercise will be very important in order to rebuild her muscle mass after either surgery or therapy; just not intense running and pounding that her leg would take while jogging on hard surfaces or even soft surfaces for too long. Her costs for surgery would be less than $1250 at East Suburban Animal Hospital using the fishing line filament technique. She MUST stay under 70lbs in order for that type of surgery to be successful for the long term. She is 72 now and has lost 9lbs since she arrived due to the diet we have her on plus exercise. She should be 70lbs by March 3 which is her recheck and or her surgery date if she is still with us. Occasionally, a person or a dog that gets this issue finds that they damage the good knee by protecting the bad knee. This could mean a future surgery as well. She is still available for adoption before March 3rd as long as the adopter commits to follow the vets recommendations of surgery and/or physical therapy. (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.
