Cheyenne

Cheyenne is a golden retriever for adoption from Golden Retriever Rescue Resource, a golden retriever rescue serving Ohio, Indiana and Michigan.
Decisions in rescue are never easy. Did we have $1,500 plus to save this dogs life, or do we leave her behind to continue a life of continuous breeding at a puppy mill in Kansas?

Even though funds are at a very low point, we decided to go ahead and help this girl along with two additional golden retrievers.

Cheyenne was just one of three golden retriever dogs we paid to save and rescue from a life of puppy mill breeding. That's a $4,500 bill, even before vetting costs.

After arrival, we realized two of these dogs are some of the worst socialized puppy mills dogs we have ever experienced. These dogs are going to be a work in progress before they can be adopted.

The beginning of a new life for puppy mill dogs is not an easy or happy time for these dogs. Cheyenne who is 5 years old has known nothing but living in a cage 24/7, 365 days a year for her entire life. Whatever handling they all had by people was not gentle nor loving, so in their minds people are to be feared. That is literally all the know of us. They only know the companionship of whatever dogs were in cages next to their cage experiencing the same life.

Dogs coming out of a puppy mills are generally good with other dogs and another dog can help them learn what it is to be a "house" dog. Cheyenne's foster mom has created a "safe" place for her in the kitchen. When they tried taking Cheyenne outside to potty she was plastered against the house out of pure fear. It took 4 people to lift the girl up to get her outside. It wasn't until 3 1/2 days after arriving that she finally went potty. It was a celebration!

Cheyenne is proving to be even a greater challenge then Bentley. So far Cheyenne has not gotten up and walked around in her foster home unless the foster parents are asleep or not home. Then she will get up and eat and drink. The couple was carrying her outside to potty, , but she heads for someplace up against the house and flattens out trying to melt away from anyone that might come near her. It is so stressful for her, they have given up making her go outside and just allow her to potty on the kitchen floor for now. Foster mom and dad are such good people!

Cheyennen a golden retriever for adoption from Golden Retriever Rescue Resource.Cheyenne has been to the vets and she has started on vaccinations, blood work, etc. We found she is hypothyroid, and had an ear infection. She is now on medication for her thyroid issue.

Cheyenne was transfered to a new foster home with more dogs on September 12th and she is like a new dog. We'll keep you updated, but she is coming around and seems so much happier now that she is exposed to many dogs instead of just one dog.

These two dogs (and foster families) have a long journey in front of them to learn that life can be filled with joy, fun, and that people can be good and loving. We'll periodically update the GRRR family on their progress.

When people buy a puppy on line or from a pet store they are making sure dogs like Cheyenne NEVER have a chance at a happy life.

Cheyenne will eventually be available for adoption. She is not ready yet to go to a forever home. Cheyenne will need a physical fenced yard and another dog in the home to help her learn and adjust. If you are interested in adoption, the first step is to read our adoption policies and follow the directions from there in you qualify.

We certainly can use your help with the rescue costs and medical needs for these three dogs. Please help us by donating above. We'll list your name here on this page as a sponsor of Cheyenne.
