About Joe

This is a cross post for GRRoW (Golden Retriever Rescue of Wisconsin)

Joe is 3 years old and has been working hard in board and train! But look out world because Joe is now looking for his forever home! He is a special needs dog and will require a special adoption since no one on GRRoW's adoption waitlist fits his particular needs.

A little background on Joe, he arrived in rescue from Turkey in July 2021.  It was discovered that he has a little fear of people coming into his space (home).  He will bark and lunge towards the fear.  He has been in a board and train and he has been working hard on facing his fears. Joe will is a wonderful dog with his people but he will always need to be managed.   

He would do best in a home where there is not a lot of people coming and going - someone with a close-knit group of friends. We could see him going on walks twice a day - or going on a treadmill for a nice walk each day - and then lounging around in a fenced yard while his owner gardens etc.  

No children as each new friend that enters the home will be a trigger for him and he will need to be managed until he gets to know them. He has been good with strangers outside the home but gets nervous and barks/lunges when new people are coming into the home. We just keep him on the leash until he calms down and smells the new person and then he goes back to being sweet as can be. 

He should be crated when his family leaves and at night, which is okay because he really loves his crate and considers it his safe space. He should not be allowed on the furniture as this can amplify his belief that his role is to protect the home/his pack.

Joe loves a good belly rub and if you are real lucky you will get to hear him 'woo woo'. His favorite thing to do is nap but don't let him fool you - he needs a good amount of exercise to be his happiest self!

Hi, my name is Moose! I am a one year old male golden looking for my perfect FURever home. I was surrendered to GRRACE when my original owner abandoned me after keeping me in a crate in his basement. I didn’t get a lot of social interaction in my first year of life but since coming to GRRACE, I have learned that I love people. Sometimes I love them so much that I get sad when they leave. My foster home calls this separation anxiety. I have been getting some help to overcome my fear of being alone and it’s helped a lot but in my forever home, I would prefer to have humans who are home often. I also don’t love to share my humans so I need to be the only pet in the home. Oh, I also LOVE food and am still learning to share. Until I get better at that, I will need a home with older children or adults only. I know I have some things to work on but I am really just a silly puppy looking to have fun. I love walks, doing zoomies in the yard, and lounging on the couch. I am potty trained, up to date on vaccines, not destructive, and I don’t bark very much. I know I have a few quirks to work though but with the right training, patience and encouragement, I know I will continue to improve. I didn’t have the best start to life but I promise I have a lot of love to give. Moose will make a wonderful addition to the right family. If you are an adult only home (or a home with children over the age of 13), are home often, have no other dogs or cats, have a structural fence and are willing to continue to love, encourage, and train Moose then please contact GRRACE to learn more!   show less
