Mature Dogs – Exceptional Forever Homes – We are presently paused for new inquires about older dogs.

We are currently paused for older dog inquires as we process the families that have responded to this post. Updated: March 28, 2020.

We are currently considering excellent homes for several of our retiring and semi-retiring females. Our first choice would be to keep all of our dogs here at Goldnote. However, now that their breeding careers have come to a close, we recognize that these cherished members of the Goldnote family deserve exceptional forever homes.

Over the years, we have moved towards a more holistic and natural approach to caring for our dogs. We now recommend limited vaccines, natural approaches to flea, tick and heartworm prevention where possible, and a firm commitment to continue with a species appropriate raw diet.

If you would like to be considered as a home for one of our retiring or semi-retiring dogs, please send a detailed email describing your day to day household patterns, family members, other pets, experience with dogs, and type of nutrition that you provided for your previous dogs.

We will only consider families who have previously fed a correct raw, species appropriate diet or those who are prepared to do their own reading about how a raw diet would fit into their lifestyle. We prepare and sell this type of food and meal plan here at Goldnote. We have made the process very convenient for families. However, a solid commitment to this process is required. If you are not familiar, start by reading this article. Reasons to Feed Raw 

We are specifically looking for families who align with our holistic dog care methods. Please also let us know why you feel you would be a good match for one of our dogs.

We will only consider placing dogs in homes that are within a reasonable drive of Goldnote.

We will not place retiring dogs out of the province.
