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 

    If you want to meet a sweet, Velcro, obedient and youthful Golden then meet 3yo 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, wrestle with other dogs 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 ... (Read More)timid girl, 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 as well as someone active in daily hiking or jogging to burn off her excess energy. She is used to running a few miles every day up until July of 2014. She has gained weight due to inactivity and 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 and loves to wrestle; 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 will run in circles chasing her toys or tail, then Maya is a possibility for you. Her requirements are: hiking or jogging almost daily, 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. I wish we could handle long distance adoptions. We are too small to do the processes listed above. 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' (Less)

Golden Retriever    Age: Senior

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

    Homeless Sam arrives at WAGS Rescue. Homeless Sam is looking for his 'forever' home. Sam was rescued by a homeless couple living in a tent in northern Pennsylvania when his original owner died. Unable to afford Sam's medical needs, the couple surrendered Sam to With A Golden Spirit, Inc. (WAGSin Pittsburgh PA area) in September with the assistance of ECHS. We do not know Sam's background he is sensitive on his hind quarters probably due to arthritis. Sam, whose age is estimated at 10 years old, is neutered, up-to-date on his shots and 'almost there' with house-training. As Sam is a little arthritic, he receives a regimen of glucosamine and ... (Read More)cranberry extract to ease any tenderness. Sam is a typical senior golden with a gentle nature who loves his tennis balls and lots of attention. He loves to go for leisurely walks and gets along well with his 'packmates'. Because he spent so much time outdoors before, Sam now prefers to spend most of his day under the computer desk or napping beside his new best friend Chance. As Sam's journey to find a 'forever' home continues, he's only asking for a safe place to rest his head. We suggest a minimum donation of $250 and encourage you to consider covering any additional medical costs. Sam is available to SW PA families and requires an application, vet reference, phone interview and home visit before the meet & greet. Sam is located near Irwin PA. Contact Mike at to start the process. (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.
