ASPCA Adoptable Dog: As Good As Gold

We’d like to introduce you to Gold, a super-friendly dog at the ASPCA Adoption Center who is anxiously waiting to find his new home.

When you first meet Gold, you’re sure to notice this handsome boy’s shiny golden coat and ever-present grin.  Gold knows no stranger and loves every person he meets! He’s very smart, and will work hard to learn new tricks—especially when his favorite treats are involved.

Gold underwent surgery to correct a condition called laryngeal paralysis, which occasionally inhibits respiration. He is doing extremely well! There’s a chance his condition could reoccur, so it’s best to keep him in a cool environment during the warmer months, and limit his exercise. Gold is the perfect companion for a picnic in the park or an afternoon on the couch.

This sweet dog has been under our care for nearly one year. He’s made many great friends at the ASPCA, but more than anything, we can’t wait for him to find a loving home of his own. Gold is looking for an adopter with some dog experience in a home with kids 12-and-up. He’s not a big fan of other dogs, so he’d like to be the only dog in your household. 

Check out our slideshow below of adorable photos of Gold’s recent afternoon in the park with some of his favorite ASPCA staff members. If you or someone you know are interested in adopting Gold, please call our Adoptions department in New York City at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120. Please share this post with all the dog lovers in your life. With your help, we’ll find Gold his perfect match.
