Personality: In the largest international rescue by any rescue group in Texas, Gold Ribbon Rescue is rescuing and rehoming orphaned Golden Retrievers from Turkey.  Most of these Goldens have been living on the streets of Istanbul, some in overcrowded shelters. Volunteers at many Istanbul shelters are working with Gold Ribbon Rescue as well as other golden retriever rescue groups in the US to help give these dogs a better life, including finding love and affection, a home to live in, needed medical care and a cushion to sleep on.

Joe Pool has been described by the children in the foster family as sweet and gentle.  His foster Mom and Dad describe him as an amazing guy.  We can’t really say if Joe Pool is really a pool guy, but he loves to chase balls, but he hasn’t yet learned to bring it back.  Make this guy your pal by taking him on rides in the car or grooming him.  He loves to be spoiled and will spoil his forever parents with love. 

Ideal home:  Joe’s ideal home would be with a household where he is the only dog.  He thrives on being around children so a home with children would be fine as well.  Are you that individual or family?  If you are, contact GRR and make this guy a forever member of your family
