1 year-old Gorgeous, Gentle Golden Retriever Needs Forever Family

Posted by on Nov 13, 2017 | 2 comments

This is Shiloh. She’s a year old this month and is the sweetest dog you could ever meet, with impeccable manners. She’s got some German Shepard in her–very smart, although her looks and demeanor are pure Golden. Her original Person died of cancer recently and she’s been heartbroken. She’s a smidge overweight because she was fed human food, but she will eat dog food. She’s just sensitive and is slowly coming out of her shell. She took the loss very hard. She was depressed and is a little timid right now, but it gets better every day. She loves her leash.  She’s great with cats, kids of any size and loves everyone, yet she’s loyal and protective. She lives for the car.  This is an awesome dog. I adore this dog but sadly I just suffered a pretty nasty injury to my back and because I live alone,  I can’t give her the life she needs and deserves. I have a collar, leash, bed, treats and toys. She’s already spoiled. She’s vaccinated and spayed and comes with a microchip. Must be a great match. Shiloh needs love, companionship, patience and comfort. Her whole world has been turned upside down once already and she’s only a year old. If you let her, this dog will be your soul mate.

Please tell me why you think you are the perfect person or family to adopt this wonderful dog. Send your response in an email to adoptgoldenshiloh@gmail.com and if selected to the short list, you’ll receive an application.

Thank you.


  1. Dear Shiloh’s Mama or Papa,

    I cannot imagine how difficult it must be for you to find a new loving home for Shiloh after what she has been through. I also have so much gratitude for you and the decision you need to make because of your injury and love for Shiloh. My heart aches for both of you.
    I grew up with golden retrievers as a child in PA. My Dad brought our first golden retriever puppy Peaches home to us when I was 7 years old. Over the years, we had two additional goldens: Corky and Misty. When my husband and I met and married, one of the first things we did was adopt a golden retriever puppy that we named Autumn because of her beautiful color. She had 12 puppies and we kept one of her puppies and named her Sugar after my husband’s mom who died while the puppies were being born. Sugar was his Mom’s nickname. Autumn and Sugar were inseparable and spent most of their lives helping us care for abused and neglected teenagers which is what my husband and I did for 20 years. We are retired now and live in Guerneville next to Armstrong Woods State Park, one of my favorite hiking and dog walking places. I miss having the one of a kind intimate soulful connection that is only possible with a dog, and especially a golden retriever. If you have any questions of would like to meet in person, I am available anytime this weekend. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed that you and Shiloh will decide to interview me!
    With Hugs and Tummy Rubs,
