Male Puppy Golden Retriever
GRRACE Golden Retriever Rescue
Cooper is an approximately 6-month-old male golden retriever weighing around 40 lbs. Cooper was surrendered to GRRACE by a commercial breeder that had more puppies than he could sell and no longer wanted to care for them.
Cooper is such a sweet boy. However, due to his start in life, he did not get much socialization as a young pup. He does well with children and adults. He can be timid around new dogs and barking dogs can be frightening to him. He walks well on leash and waits for his leash to go outside. He is getting more comfortable on walks but is still figuring out all of the outside sounds such as cars and birds which can be distracting to him.
Cooper does not like to be in small, confined spaces such as a crate. An open area in the home where he has a bit of room to roam when left alone is a must. He loves to cuddle and be around his people. He will watch for you out the window when you leave the house. He is still very much a puppy but is doing well with sit, come and we are working on other commands. He will make a great addition to the right family.
To be considered for Cooper you MUST have the following:
--A structural fence where he can feel secure and have a safe place to run and play.
--A family that has someone home most of the time to help him learn the basics, build his confidence and socialization skills.
If you have an approved application on file and you would like to be considered for Cooper, please contact GRRACE at email@example.com. You can find our adoption application and guidelines on the Adopt-A-Golden page of our website at www.grrace.org.

Hello! My name is Judah. I’m a 5 month old male Golden Retriever. I was surrendered to GRRACE when a breeder decided I was too old to sell and he didn’t want me anymore. I was kept in a barn and the first time I ever slept inside and interacted with humans was when I went to my foster home a few weeks ago. At first it was a little scary, but I’ve come out of my shell and my foster mom and dad think I’m a really great and normal big, goofy, loving golden pup. Speaking of big, the vet thinks I’m going to be about 70 pounds by the time I am finished growing. I love to be with my foster family and snuggle them or get some pets. Right now, adults are my favorite and kids make me nervous. I really want to visit with them, but then I turn and go the other way. Because of this my foster parents say I probably would be best in a house that has no kids or has older kids. Since I wasn’t socialized outside the barn new things occasionally make me a little scared. My foster fur brother and sister have helped with that. In my new home I will need to have a fur brother or sister who would play with me and continue to show me the ropes. I love to play fetch and also can play by myself for a while on the floor with all my toys. Because I’m still a puppy I still like to chew on things I shouldn’t and get into things I shouldn’t. I can’t stay all day in the crate while someone goes to work because I’m still young. So, I will need someone who works from home and can let me out a few times and play with me. I do great overnight in my crate and do not whine or bark. I do love to run outside and zoomies are a favorite as well as chasing a ball, or chewing on a stick. I do pretty well coming when called, but that’s pretty new to me as well as other obedience commands. I would benefit greatly from a puppy obedience class. I am sure I could be the star and definitely would be the most handsome there. To be considered for Judah you MUST have the following: -A mentor dog who can help him with his confidence and show him the ropes. -A structural fence where he can run and play safely. -An adult home most of the time to help him build up his socialization skills and confidence at first. If you have an approved application on file and are interested in being considered for Judah, please contact GRRACE at firstname.lastname@example.org.
