This special girl is Seda, one of our recent immigrants from Turkey, where she was found wandering in the forest. All that is behind her now and she is loving life in America.

This petite blond was a bit shy when she first came to the US, but has warmed up quickly and loves to snuggle on the couch or have a belly rub. She is friendly, lovable and affectionate with everyone she meets. She loves to be wherever her humans are. She also loves the company of her canine siblings. She is calm for a puppy but is always ready to play at a moments notice. She is also willing to share her toys and has not shown any sign of aggression with toys or food.

Seda has great house manners and has not disturbed any of her foster family’s belongings. She is house-trained and knows how to use the doggie door. She does not counter surf, beg for food and rarely barks. She rides well in the car. Seda is great on a leash and will walk right next to her foster family. It’s possible that she was trained while in Turkey, but is still learning basic commands in English. She knows how to sit.

Like many other goldens, she loves, loves, loves the water and will swim all day if allowed. She also enjoys her baths and loves to be groomed and rubbed all over.

We are anticipating that Seda will be very popular, so we’ll be focusing our search for two of her favorite things: a sweet canine sibling and a pool. If you have submitted an online application AND had a home visit with one of our volunteers, and are ready to have Seda steal your heart, contact Sharon at and let her know about the wonderful life you’d give to this amazing pup.

Due the increased costs associated with bringing these dogs to the U.S., both travel and medical, the adoption donation for Seda is $1500.
