November is Adopt a Senior Dog Month!
If you want to adopt or foster a Golden Retriever, please consider a senior dog. So many people want a puppy, but seniorGoldens will give you all the joys of dog ownershipwithout the hassles of having a "youngster". A senior has been potty trained, is finished with the chewing and teething stage, is a little less energetic, and usually knows basic commands. Older Goldens can fit into your life with little trouble and will reward you with love and companionship in return.
RAGofAZ received an inquiry from a prospective adoptive family looking to open their hearts and home to a senior golden. She wrote:"We would like to know if Murphy is available. Obviously he is in the final stages of life. Some of the most treasured times with Jack (our rescue) were in the end when I could care for him and his needs. Doing this made me slow down, sit in the shade of the trees, listen to the birds and take in life from a dog’s point of view. Please let me know about Murphy. I want him to have a home where he can live out his life and be loved and adored!"
Please consider fostering or adopting a senior.... I can promise you that a senior Golden will be the best friend you could ever hope for.
