Sooner Golden Retriever Rescue Meet & Greet / Adoption Event
Originating in the Scottish Highlands in the late 1800s, the Golden Retriever was developed by Lord Tweedmouth, by crossing the original yellow Flat-Coated Retriever with the now extinct Tweed Water Spaniel. He later crossed in the Bloodhound, Irish Setter and more Tweed Water Spaniel. The dogs were called the Golden Flat-Coat and only later were they given the name Golden Retriever. The Golden Retriever is one of the most popular breeds known today, not only as family companions but for obedience competitions, hunting and tracking, as a birddog on both land and in the water, narcotics detection, service dog for the disabled, a guide for the blind and as a therapy dog. The Golden Retriever was first recognized by the AKC in 1925.
These are lovable, well-mannered, intelligent dogs with a great charm. They are easily trained, and always patient and gentle with children. Charming, devoted and self-assured, they are a popular family dog. Energetic and loving, Golden Retrievers enjoy pleasing their masters, so obedience training can be very rewarding. They excel in competitions. Friendly with everyone, including other dogs, the Golden Retriever has very little, if any, guarding instincts. While unlikely to attack, Goldens make good watchdogs, loudly signaling a stranger's approach. This breed needs to be around people who display leadership to be happy. The Golden Retriever may become destructive and/or high-strung, over-exuberant and distractible if he is lacking in daily mental and physical exercise. This breed will do okay in an apartment if sufficiently exercised. They are moderately active indoors and will do best with at least a medium to large yard.
About Sooner Golden Retriever Rescue from their website:
Sooner Golden Retriever Rescue is a non-profit, all volunteer organization established for the purposes of placing unwanted Golden Retrievers in good homes and educating the public about Golden Retrievers and their needs.
All incoming dogs are spayed or neutered and temperament and health checked before placement. An in-home interview is conducted with every potential adoptive family to determine that all adoption criteria have been met and to carefully match a Golden with a new and permanent home.
Further, the Sooner Golden Retriever Rescue provides in-depth educational materials to all potential adoptive homes and other interested parties, solicits donations, and holds ongoing fund raising projects to help defray the costs of rescue operations.
