We had a volunteer take off work to pull this sweet gal from an Ohio shelter.
Janey was found running in a pack of 7 dogs and was picked up by a dog warden at the shelter. Janey is a 2 year old, 35 pound golden retriever / shepherd mix. Janey is quite shy at first with people, but does slowly warm up. She is much more trusting of dogs and was good with meeting her siblings in her foster home.
We are pretty sure she has never lived in a home before, and once she moves into her permanent home she will need time to adjust completely to your home. She is coming along nicely in her foster home, slow but sure.
Janey was really scared when she first arrived in our program May 1st. Now, she likes to lick foster mom like a wild child when foster mom first wakes up. She is still a little scaredy dog in the house, except she does like to lounge on the bed and the sofa. Janey has growled a bit at the resident dogs if they try to invade her lounging space.
Janey's new family will need to understand that it will take her a good long time to get comfortable completely in her new home environment, with the family and other dogs.
A fenced yard is preferred to an invisible fence for this girl, due to her background of being found as a stray. No children under the age of 10 years old as we don't know her complete background and young children would most likely scare her by their fast movements.
If you would like to be considered to adopt Janey or another golden retriever, please read our adoption adoption policies
and follow the directions from there.
