My Story

Date into Rescue: 8/3/18 adopted but returned 6/1/2019 as his new family had unexpected health challenges develop

Reason for being in rescue: Goliath was surrendered by his owners. He is full of energy and was just too much dog for their lifestyle.

Special Needs: none noted

What kind of home would be best for me? Goliath is seeking a home with active owners that have patience for a young, large breed dog. It would be best for him to not be in a home with smaller dogs due to his size. Owner Experience Level 3: First time dog owner but has lived with a dog as an adult and participated in the dog's care 

What is my personality like: Goliath is a big dog with an even bigger personality! This boy does not have a shy bone in his body. We knows that he is huge, but he thinks he is an 8 lb lap dog. He is fabulous, but we can see why he can be me too much for some people due to his size and energy. Goliath loves attention almost as much as he loves playing. He still needs basic training. When walking on a leash he actually does not pull but he does cut in front of you. He is also highly treat motivated and very willing to learn basic commands. Chew toys are his favorite toys, he will chase a tennis balls but hasn't figured out the "retrieving" part yet. Goliath would be an incredible companion for a very active family.

How do I act when I first meet new people: Does not meet a stranger

Tips and Tidbits: Goliath's birthday is 04/10/2017.  We all know the story of David and Goliath, but this Goliath is our gentle giant that loves to snuggle!

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
