Welcome to the USA

Welcome!

Twenty goldens left their shelter in Turkey on Thursday, traveled to Luxembourg and JFK, and finally last night (Sunday) arrived in Maryland. The trip had been delayed since April, but for four beautiful golden pups – 8 month old Roxy, 1.5 year old Zeki, 3 year old Zoe and 4 year old Mae the best part of the journey has just begun.

Zekie and Roxy

Zeki is being fostered by Peggy and Paul Dziewit, who braved the long drive to JFK to pick him and Roxy up. Roxy is being fostered by Michelle and Rob Cox.

Zoe

Zoe spent the entire drive home giving kisses to her foster mom, Becky Minnich when she wasn’t curled up on her lap.

Mae

And beautiful Mae is what everyone dreams of as the ideal golden. Walked perfectly on leash; play bowed to each dog she met; loving and, well, just perfect! Mae is being fostered by Barb and Tony Baratta after an overnight with Becky.

Volunteers

Peggy, Paul, Becky and Pat joined volunteers from Yankee Golden Retriever Rescue and Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue to bring these pups to the USA where their new life begins TODAY.

Pups were fully vetted in Turkey, but will get a once over by one of the rescue’s local vets. Foster families will get to know them and pups should be available for adoption within the next couple of weeks. ALL will need a physically fenced yard, a young canine play mate and someone home part of the day. To learn more about adopting please review the Adoption Guide before submitting an application. We adopt in the Southern Maryland region as home visits and interviews are required before adoption.
