Rehoming a dog

678 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  LeoRose
Hi Everyone,

I have an 8 month old golden retriever that is purebred and both his parents are AKC Champions. We had a great time raising him and have poured over 20k into him, but our hectic work schedules just don't give us the opportunity to spend time and take care of him. Do you guys have any suggestions on how to rehome him? He is adorable and very sociable.

Much Thanks.

Have you reached out to his breeder? Most responsible breeders will take back any dog they've bred for any reason (some even require it in their puppy contracts, so double check that if you signed one), or at will least help you rehome through their network of prospective puppy buyers - many people would jump at the chance for a dog that's past the worst of potty training and not sleeping through the night, haha. Definitely would be my first step if I were in your situation!
Yes, please contact your breeder. An ethical breeder has it stipulated in their contract that the dog must return to them if the owner can't take care of it for any reason.
A dog sired by two champions has some value if still intact. Contact your breeder.
Yes, contact the breeder. It's probably in the contract you signed when you bought him that he be returned to the breeder if you can't keep him.
