Princess

Golden Retriever

An adotable dog in Columbus, NJ

  • Adult
  • Medium
  • Female



Princess is a lovely 2-3 year old Golden Retriever mix who is a petite 40 lbs. She is likely mixed with something smaller but we are not sure what.

Princess came into rescue with another dog from a high kill shelter in TN. She is fantastic and we are so happy she is a big fluffy dogs. Princess is great with other dogs and with people. She is low to medium energy so a laid back family would be best for her. We have not had her around cats but we don't see an issue. She is potty trained and has great house manners. When we asked Princess' foster about her they said she was "She's very sweet, loving, laid back".

Please email Jen@bigfluffydogs.com to adopt this girl.

If you are interested in adopting this dog, please apply online, at http://www.bigfluffydogs.com/online-app.php.

Our main website, www.bigfluffydogs.com has more information about us and the rescue process.

All known information about an individual dog is provided in it's listing. We do our best to provide accurate information, but adopters must understand that each home is different and the dog may behave differently in a new home. Dogs are creatures of their environment and you help make the dog what it will be.

Homes considering adopting a puppy must be prepared for:
1.) Flexible schedules for potty training. Puppies can only "hold it" for one hour per month of age (ex. a 4 month old puppy can only go 4 hours without a potty break).
2.) Crate training until the puppy is at least one year old, to prevent chewing on inappropriate things when you can't supervise.
3.) Socialization: The more positive and varying experiences as a puppy the better, both in and out of your home.
4.) Puppy behavior and life stages are equivalent to a human toddler. It takes at least a full year to have a calmer, well adjusted dog. Patience is required and when your dog's behavior is a positive experience for you and those around you, your patience will be rewarded tenfold, for years to come.
Please do not consider adopting a puppy if you have not thoroughly thought through the pros and cons of having one. So many people end up returning them after 3-5 months because they didn't realize the amount of work involved in raising a puppy.
Patience, appropriate toys, socialization, and obedience training are all musts. All are time consuming, and can be expensive.

All Dogs Require:Supervision with children and obedience training.
Adopters that want to have good dogs must be prepared to put the time and effort into training a dog. Any dog requires work and effort, but a well trained, well socialized dog is more than worth the effort put in to get them there.
