These were two of my previous goldens, now passed. One of old age, the other from cancer. I worked with Golden Retriever Rescue and fostered another golden for 6 months. I am now ready to own my own again. After much research I understand the English Goldens may be healthier and tend not to get cancer like the American Goldens. They are so beautiful and with the most wonderful temperment as all "goldies" do.
I have a large home with a fenced in back yard, however I enjoy walking my dogs (and they enjoy it as well). My daughter has a 4 yr old chocolate lab that is the sweetest girl you have ever met and wants someone to play with. So a baby sister or brother would be wonderful.
We like to go to the park and take long walks and I find it lonely without my pups. Although I have been a regular contributer to GRRA and consistently check their website and visit their adoptions, I have never seen an English Golden and it has always been my dream to have one for many many years. For some reason, they tug at my heart.
I have a cat in my home who is used to dogs and even eats out of the same bowl as the lab. She was best friends with my golden and used to clean his eyes when they got "gooey". I have pictures of her doing that and eating with him out of his bowl. So sweet.
I feel without a golden in my life, something is missing. He/she would have a playmate. My granddaughter would love another puppy to play with and we are very much an animal loving family.
My sister rescues dogs (from kill shelters) for Best Friends Animal Santuary in Los Angeles, a heart-breaking job, but needed. She looks for an English Golden for me, but none so far. I am hoping that is a good thing.
I work full-time, but work 100% from my home. I hope to retire within a year or two.
I hope you approve of me to adopt one of your pups or even an older dog if you have one. I just love goldens and cannot wait to have one of my own.
