    Hi everyone! My name is Nicholas and I'm a 2 year old neutered chow/lab mix. I'm here at Blue Chip because I was in a high kill shelter. But it's ok because they decided here to save me and give me a second chance at life. If you can find room in your home for me I promise to make them proud of what a good boy I am. Please call 5703335265 to meet me and I'll show you how much love I have to give.

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-21-00070Maya (female)

Golden Retriever    Age: Young Adult

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

    Maya is the classic TV personality for a Golden; joyous, loving and sometimes silly. She leans into your leg & presses her face into your thigh, she will lay with her head across your lap, she loves everyone and wants to give back nothing but love. She listens well, signals when she has to go out and never ever does any bad dog behaviors; no counter surfing, no trash diving, no chewing...nothing unwanted. She loves to play and her toy collection is very important to her. She loves kids but is too exuberant with toddlers and could accidentally hurt them by pawing or bumping into them. She is curious so far about cats but we are not sure if ... (Read More)she will live well with them. So far she has just become interested and perks up in their presence. She loves to play with other dogs but should probably be the only dog in the home because she has a tender & sore ACL, from playing too rough with other dogs. Her ACL simply requires surgery which is schedule for Mid May and rehab of hydrotherapy, laser therapy and at home physical therapy for up to a year. A fund is being created to help pay for up to 1/2 of her surgery which costs about $2400 before the fund's contribution. Once completed with rehab she should be better than new! She is on inexpensive thyroid meds but is otherwise healthy and full of life. She is food oriented which makes her very easy to train. She pulls hard on leash and has been known in her past to runaway so public training classes with the distraction of other dogs is a 2nd requirement with her. Speaking of her past, she comes from a loving family life where circumstances changed and they needed to find another home for her. She normally stays off furniture unless invited but jumps in bed with my wife everyday to tell her it is time to get up. She is rusty but knows her basic commands and is completely housebroken. Her greatest joy is to be with her person and also go for hikes. She'll need a fenced or e-fenced yard since she has been known to run away. Her activity level needs to be moderated so she can heal her sore ACL. Jogging and running loose in a dog park or fenced area are not good for her ACL for a while. Hopefully, that will improve in 3-4 months. She barks at strangers and then wags with excitement when they come in the door. She gently carries around toys and usually does not tear them up unless she is anxious. She is content being by your side or on her pillow-bed and knows the phrase 'go lie down.' She loves car rides and rides very well by generally lying down and sleeping. She is skittish of new things and loud noises but adjusts quickly given time. She would love an adult home but animal-aware young people would be good as well. She loves hiking so dig out your hiking shoes. She loves loving so be prepared for lots of snuggling. She is an amazing, wonderful sweet spayed, micro chipped, 60lb, UTD 4yo girl. Her DOB is 2/2/11. If you want a dog that will lean into you for comfort, snuggle with you, enjoys meeting everyone; Maya is for you. To apply to adopt any of our Goldens you must live in SW PA or nearby.

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Young Adult

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)

    Coco is a wonderful dog. She loves going for walks and cuddling up on a nice warm lap. She can't wait for that perfect someone to come and sweep her off her paws. Coco would prefer a home without other dogs or small children.

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.
