Rescue Me ID: 15-02-17-00538Maya (female)

Golden Retriever    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    What a amazing, wonderful sweet spayed, micro chipped UTD 4yo girl Maya has been at our rescue. Her DOB is 2/2/11. Gentle yet rambunctious, Velcro and a whirlwind of excitement yet understands when you say 'go lay down.' She loves games, toys and even entertains herself with toys. She enjoys hikes and long walks and particularly loves the physical therapy exercises she has been prescribed to strengthen her muscles around a lose and sore minor acl. You should see her go through the routine with joy and happiness. She'll need someone willing to continue her therapy at home and at the therapists. She enjoys children but is too exuberant for ... (Read More)toddlers. She would love pet-aware kids or just active adults. She was placed with WAGS by a very loving family who's circumstances changed significantly. She loves dogs but her vet said she should go to a home without other dogs and no dog parks (at least until the vet approves) since that is how she hurt her ACL in the first place; playing rough, running hard and wrestling. No cats either. She loves car trips and immediately goes to sleep even on long distance trips. She has a thyroid issue easily treatable with meds and blood level checks.She knows very rudimentary commands but is too easily distracted like most untrained Goldens. She definitely requires someone willing to invest in group training; she pulls terribly on leash, runs away if you accidentally drop the leash or leave a door open too long, paws and sometimes jumps up in exuberant joy. All of this can be improved and removed with training classes. She is housebroken, intelligent and a people pleaser. She is skittish about new things you introduce her to like a new car, a new door, a new location but learns to adjust fairly soon. Her favorite activity is eating! The physical therapist prescribed a fun game to build her muscles that uses her food every morning and night instead of eating out of a bowl. She loves it! She will need a traditional fenced yard or underground eFence yard since she loves to run away and explore the neighborhood. She loves to bury her head under your chin. Such a sweet loving girl. * * If you want a dog that will lean into you for comfort, snuggle with you, enjoys meeting everyone and you are willing to continue her therapy at home and at the physical therapist; Maya is for you. * * To apply to adopt any of our Goldens you must live in SW PA or nearby. The rescue 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, signed, 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' (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-11-00482NICK, PERFECT 4 A FAMILY (male)

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Deaf 

    Nick is an easy going sweetheart who loves long walks, even longer naps, rolling in the snow, belly rubs, and chewing on his nylabones by the fire. He is great with other dogs, cats, bunnies & kids. Fully house trained. Nick is deaf so he shouldn't be alone or off leash outside unless in a secure area. Other than that, it doesn't affect him at all. Poor Nick was abandoned in Somerset County in November and is currently in foster care. If you have room in your heart for Nick please contact us. He can't wait to meet you!

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)

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.
