What Should Be Known About Rescue Groups And Golden Retriever Adoption

By Robbie Bainer

Upon getting a puppy, taking care of it is often a daunting task. Improper breeding can make it even more challenging because often the resulting litters have a greater chance of having diseases. This can mean that the new addition more than likely will not live as long as the healthier dogs, not to mention it isn’t easy to nurse a sick puppy back to health. The fact that one of the most common dog breeds owned in the United States is the golden retriever means that they are more susceptible to numerous diseases. Hip dysplasia is one of the problems most often seen in this breed. The growing number of dogs being abandoned has created an increased supply of those available from rescue groups for golden retriever adoption.

Quite often the decision regarding the kind of dog to get is driven by looks instead of truly researching the breed and making an informed decision ultimately choosing the breed that best suits the family. There is often quite a surprise when the disposition of the dog is not what they desired, rather it acts most like a different breed. One can’t deny how adorable puppies are, but training, attention, and time is needed to groom them into well behaved dogs. It is overwhelming to inexperienced dog owners when they truly realize how much time needs to be dedicated to the canine, so sometimes they decide to get rid of it.

Golden retrievers are typically gentle mannered dogs, yet many of them get neglected, or even abused. Often times this occurs when the owners do not take the time to train or give the dog affection. When it acts in a way their owners don’t like, the unknowing pet winds up being the target of abuse.

There is difficulty in dealing with abused dogs. When they are finally rescued from prison, they do not have the typical golden retrievers’ sunny disposition. They are scared and nervous around people. This can become a problem when rescue groups attempt to adopt out dogs due to the higher risk of resulting behavioral issues.

Located in most states, the golden retriever rescue groups find golden retrievers in shelters that have possibly been abused, neglected, or abandoned. They rescue the dogs from the shelter, saving them from the inevitability of euthanasia, and place them in a foster home as the step before finding a good home to adopt them out to.

Choosing to adopt from a rescue group is much cheaper than a breeder. The catch is that there are probably health and behavioral problems that need to be attended to.

Adopting through rescue groups is economical, but they usually have many requirements prior to adoption. Applications must be completed and interviews are held. The main objective is to make sure that the potential home is a healthy environment and all are dedicated to the mental and physical health of the dog.

Rescue groups are great because many golden retrievers are saved and placed in healthy, loving environments. Numerous dogs would’ve been euthanized if there weren’t these groups. Golden retriever adoption by a patient family that has the time to acquaint their new dog to a good life, will result in the nurturing and healthful return of the pleasant, friendly disposition of the typical golden. Giving a dog a new lease on life is a wonderful accomplishment that these groups achieve on a daily basis. Even if the donation for adoption were the same as breeders, it would be worth price to benefit the rescue group and adopt a loving four legged companion.
