Ben is a 9 week old male purebred AKC golden retriever puppy who was surrendered with his 2 siblings by their breeder in rural Tennessee. Their littermates had all been adopted and the breeder wanted to invest no more time, energy and money into these pups while awaiting adopters who might never show up. All these puppies are friendly and well-socialized, playful and happy, not a bit timid. Very smart and playful and already love the swimming pool. Ben lives with his foster family where he's getting lots of socialization with kids, cats and other dogs. Recommended for children 6 years and older. Instruction begun in crate-training, housebreaking, leash walking. Born 7/4/09. AKC papers. Weighs about 16 pounds, healthy, altered and all shots. This is a happy, loving puppy who will make a great companion for an adopter who loves the breed.To adopt please fill out an adoption application.
