Adopt Georgie

Ali Jarvis from the dog-friendly resource, sidewalkdog.com stopped by to help Georgie the Golden Retriever find a forever home.

This month's adoptable dog is Danny Boy (he goes by George/Georgie) from Retrieve a Golden of the Midwest (RAGOM). Danny Boy (Georgie) is an 8-year-old Golden Retriever. He spent his life as a commercial breeding dog and was kept in a kennel most of the time.  He is a very sweet mellow boy who has come such a long way from not being able to stand up straight due to a crate that was too small. He walks well on a leash, plays nicely with other dogs, and LOVES food. His bio and photo are attached.

Adoption fee is $400.  Link to dog’s adoption page.
Required: Family must have another confident dog committed to continuing his weight loss through exercise and diet.Crate-trained: He cannot be in a crate. He has a bad reaction! He does respect baby gates.

  • Phenobarbital for seizures twice a day
  • The cost of these medications is approximately $45.00 per month
  • He needs testing every six months
  • He also is given the joint supplement Dasaquin with MSM daily
