Tag Archives: Golden Retriever


I have been named Averel and I am a young (7 month old) male, and by all aspects probably a Golden mix. Mixed with what is the question, as I have very large paws, am already a very big boy so possibly with a LARGE breed.

I am a little skittish, I come from a farm where all my siblings were sold but me, so I was headed for the pound and instead came to Sophie’s Dog Adoption in hopes of finding a good home.

I don’t know a whole lot, but I am very eager to learn and please, I get along great with cats, and even though a little nervous around some dogs, I do get along with them once the initial “sniffing” is done.

I would love to have a family with kids, an active family or someone who will give me exercise so I don’t get restless and become a destructive, out-of-control teenage pup.

Can you be my new and forever home?


My name is Soni and I’m now lonely. I’m one of the Magnificent 7, a litter of Golden/Lab puppies born November 2009, and like my foster sister Penelope, I too am looking for a new forever home. I’m only 2 and half, and a beautiful blond. Since I lived in the same house as Penelope, I’m also good with kids, dogs and cats.

I’m a little more anxious than¬†Penelope since we lost our home but are being boarded together at the moment while waiting for foster homes. As well, if I could find a home with¬†Penelope it would make me happy, but I can also learn to live without her.

I do have 5 sisters and a brother that have been adopted, if one of you want’s to welcome me, the little sister, that would also be a great home.


I have been named Filou. I was found wandering around in the country, in really bad shape. I was sick, lonely and cold. My hair was falling out, I was itchy and my skin was so damaged it looked like I might have cancer. I am about 5 years old, and Sophie was going to do anything to save me!

So I was brought to a vet, a biopsy was taken, blood tests, skin scrapings, I was neutered and treated for all and every parasites in case I had some.

Sophie’s Dog Adoption who is the forever optimist, was relieved when told it was probably allergies due to food or the environment I was living in. I may have been sleeping on something like insulation or something similar.

I was shaved down, given medicated shampoos, medication, and good quality food, and I am like new. One of my ears has been damaged in the past, probably due to a fight or an accident and not taken care of, so it folds down and is scarred. But it gives me a look that melts your heart!

I have come out of my shell and LOVE the indoors and my new foster home. I have a couple of beds to choose from, dog friends and toys to play with, someone to kiss me, hug me, love me, talk sweet to me, and I just LOVE it! After a life of living outside (as my coat evidently proved), I have now gotten used to the luxury of living indoors.

My hair is growing in, my skin is getting better, and the itchiness is all gone. I am a bit of a scavenger, though, so I like to get into the garbage and any kind of food that is left behind. I was used to fending for myself, and probably went around into peoples’ garbage when they left their cottages for the week!

I am starting to make friends at the dog park, but I also like to protect it and bark when people enter. It has become my new ‘property’ when we go out, and it actually makes people laugh. I have a loud voice and can be heard across the park! I will make sure to protect your property if you adopt me!

I am a very sweet boy, love kids, other dogs, and would probably do well with cats. To know me is to love me, I will charm your heart in a nanosecond!
