Subject: Golden Retriever in SB Needs Rescue



Charlie is a pure bred Golden Retriever, intact, approximately 2-3 years old. Charlie has consistently presented with some significant behavior challenges. He displays friendly behavior then will unpredictability grab the handler's legs, growl and mount either at the knees or up to the shoulders, and in one instance he (wearing a nylon muzzle) jumped up growling close to someone's face. He has done this when being taken out of his kennel and when loose in a yard. 

Charlie has been in our care for 2 weeks and his behavior has not improved. We have only taken him out with a muzzle, do not feel we can safely work with him, are not equipped to provide long-term behavior rehabilitation, and have not been able to find a rescue who is comfortable taking him. We are seeking responsible placement for someone willing to work with Charlie's behavior needs. Please respond no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday 6/17 if you can take Charlie into your rescue. All transfer fees are waived for this dog.
