After learning that hundreds of Golden Retrievers in Turkey have been abandoned by their owners, Adopt-A-Golden Atlanta began bringing them to Atlanta to find permanent homes. In May 2015, 36 Golden Retrievers were brought in by AGA. In December, the fifth Turkey Dog flight will arrive with more big fluffy yellow dogs.
Mrs. GaPundit and I have adopted from AGA and volunteered with them, and in my opinion, they are the finest rescue organization around. You can donate online to help them, or put in your adoption application for your new best friend.
If you’re interested in one of the Turkey Dogs, AGA asks that you meet the following requirements:
• no kids under 8 years
• fence, not an invisible fence
• someone home during part of the day
You may still be able to meet the requirements for adoption of a domestic Golden Retriever, even if you don’t meet the Turkey Dog enhanced security requirements.
My foster gave me a good report card. I love people and I can get along with most dogs but I’ll pass on the cats, please. I’m a laid back, happy boy who likes to take walks or ride in the car or play with my toys. I always like to please the people around me because then I get a big pat on the head! Foster says I have a a true golden personality!
My foster says I am so handsome I could be a movie star. (How about that for a compliment?) I like being the only dog in the house but am a generally happy, all around good guy. I am totally in love with people, playing ball and I am learning to walk on the leash thing. I think I could live with kids OK but maybe the best ones would be a little older -they could help me with lessons.

I’m looking for some easy going folks to hang out with. I’m not too interested in running around and playing but I am the best kind of dog for taking things easy and living the quiet life. I have a little stiffness in my hips so I don’t want a home with a lot of steps to climb but a few are OK. I haven’t tried out other dogs or cats so far so just stay tuned and I’ll get back to you.
