Oh, Danny Boy! You’re our Adoptable Dog of the Week from This beautiful Golden Retriever lives in Andover, CT. He is an adult, is already neutered, purebred, and up to date with shots.

Danny Boy’s Story:

Danny Boy used to be someone’s family pet. He is a handsome 2 year old, 55 pound Golden Retriever that found himself at a high kill shelter, wondering how his life got so turned upside down and him with the possibility of facing death. This lovely boy is full of life and love and energy. He needs a place to run, a good dog savvy owner that will make him listen and train him to his full potential of being a great dog. He is pretty much house trained and not a fan of the crate, but will go in. We are not sure how he is with cats yet… but we will know soon. If you are interested in adopting this boy… better hurry! Due to recent changes in interstate adoption regulations, we are no longer able to adopt to RI residents. Adoption fee required. Call 615-661-5333 or email
