4/23/17 Foster Update: Golden Hailey and Charlie the Lab are still waiting for their forever home! Their needs are so simple and they such good, good dogs! Their wish list has just three things—few steps into the house, someone home a good part of the day, and low-calorie cookies readily available. They do not need fencing, training, expensive medicine, or a running partner — just some love, good company and a nice routine. Charlie’s allergy-related cough is easily managed with a very low dose of prednisone ($13/month), and Hailey’s seasonal allergy is controlled with her grain-free food. Other than a joint supplement which is recommended for all seniors, neither takes any other medicine. These two have energy, love to play, enjoy car rides, love toys and people, and get along great with other dogs and cats. They will fit in nicely with other pets, or on their own. They are gentle, social and happy dogs. Background: Originally from Louisiana, Hailey and Charlie are a bonded pair of seniors who lived with their former family since they were 2 years old. After losing both of their human parents, they had nowhere to go when no one else in the family could take them in, as much as they loved them. We promised to keep Hailey and Charlie together because they have lost their people and their home, and we do not want them to lose each other as well. Both are 11 years old, and about 62-65 lbs. You can take a look at them in this video, along with their Frisbee carrying foster sister.Lab mix, Charlie, has taken off several pounds in his foster home with proper food and exercise. He has more energy, can now manage the stairs off the deck, and loves his walks around the 3-acre property. He is doing so well that he no longer needs arthritis medication! Charlie smiles now, and he will sit and give you his paw. He speaks with one bark at dinnertime, or to tell you he needs to go potty. He is a dear Labbie boy who loves his Golden sister, the resident Golden, and anyone who will pet him or give him a cookie.Hailey, a classic Golden, runs for a stuffed baby to welcome you. She loves to fetch, although retrieving is more fun than giving the ball back. She is the quietest of the pair, but after dinner she takes time to celebrate her full tummy by having a nice roll on her back in the kitchen! Hailey loves children, attention, and her stuffed toys. Hailey lets you know it is time to go out by giving you the Golden Paw.Hailey and Charlie are spayed/neutered, up to date on their vaccinations, micro-chipped, and heartworm negative. This is a pair of easy keepers who will be wonderful companions in a quiet home where someone is around most of the day. They are being fostered in MA and are ready to meet their forever family!If you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact the Adoption Committee at CandyVS2@aol.com to be considered to adopt Charlie and Hailey.If not yet approved, please visit our website to learn more and to submit an online application: http://sunshinegoldenrescue.com/adoption-info1.htmlPlease DO NOT use the ADOPT ME button to contact us, about this dog, as that will delay our ability to respond to your inquiry.Please direct any questions regarding your application status to: SGRRdogs@gmail.comThank you!

 . Cupcake .

  • Golden Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Cupcake’s story with our rescue began in late February at 3:00 AM when the police in Mobile, AL received a frantic call from a woman who was crying and telling them that her neighbor shot her dog in the face. The police officers went out to the home and found the sweet dog all bloodied up. It seems that this dog was left out, chained up to the back porch, as is the case for all too many dogs in the south. For whatever reason, a neighbor came along at that ridiculous hour of the morning and shot this poor baby in the face. The nincompoop was truly shooting to kill this sweet dog by shooting her in the head! Had the bullet entered a millimeter to the side, Cupcake's spinal cord would have been severed and she would have died. But God had another plan for this sweet baby, who still has a purpose to fulfill in her life!Unable to afford the cost of the vet bills, the woman relinquished her dog to the animal control officer. Despite this starting out as a horrid situation, it turned out to be Cupcake's lucky day as she will never again be left tied out or shot at! When Cupcake first came to our rescue, we thought she had been shot with a pellet gun, as we have seen with many of the southern dogs who have been taken into our rescue. However, during her spay, an x-ray was taken that revealed that a bullet had entered Cupcake's nostril, exited the sinus cavity, and is lodged in the thick muscle of her neck. Upon neurological examination, no indications of disability were seen and her vision and hearing are not impaired. The vets at the clinic agreed that the bullet should be left alone as it is not causing any harm and will not interfere with Cupcake's quality or quantity of life.Now, we fast forward a bit and our sweet Cupcake is now in foster care in CT. When she arrived, she came bounding down the transport ramp to proudly meet her human friends. One of our volunteers told us, “Cupcake was walking next to me so I leaned down to scratch her ears and her head and she sat there and closed her eyes. I got the sense that she was immediately transported to heaven. The look of pure bliss on this pup's face was priceless and Cupcake is sweetness personified.”Cupcake is estimated to be about 12-18 months old and weighs about 45 lbs. She is as loving and as affectionate as they come and as cute as can be! You can see the absolute sweetness in her eyes and in her smile, even in the picture where her face had been wounded. This moderately active dog has now regained her original beauty. Her fur has grown back nicely on her face and serves as a beautifully soft, fuzzy frame for her gorgeous honey colored eyes.Sweet Cupcake loves people and desperately wants a "people" to call her own. Because it seems that Cupcake was never allowed to play with other dogs, she is a bit apprehensive when first meeting new dogs. She is spending time at doggy day care and has gotten increasingly more accustomed to having doggy friends. Cupcake is a little nervous about getting into the car and still needs help to do so, but once she is in the car, she settles nicely and rides very well. She often lays her head on her human’s shoulder for the duration of the ride. Having spent most of her former life tied out on a chain, this little girl needs an adopter who will guide her in socialization. So many of the things that the average dog is accustomed to, this little lady has never experienced. With time, patience, and a sense of humor, Cupcake will blossom and become the dog she was meant to be. Cupcake has been brought up-to-date on vaccinations, micro-chipped, is spayed and is heartworm negative. If you have it in your heart to give a girl who has had a rough start to her life a forever home, please consider Cupcake.If you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact Donna at SunshineGoldens@gmail.com to be considered to adopt sweet Cupcake.If not yet approved, please visit our website to learn more and to submit an online application: http://sunshinegoldenrescue.com/adoption-info1.htmlPlease DO NOT use the ADOPT ME button to contact us, about this dog, as that will delay our ability to respond to your inquiry.Please direct any questions regarding your application status to: SGRRdogs@gmail.comThank you!

 . Drake .  . Drake .  . Drake .
  • Flat-coated Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Prefers home without cats
Drake is a BEAUTIFUL "black golden" boy who is estimated to be about 4 years-old. He was picked up as a stray in Mobile County, AL, and sadly no one came to claim this happy boy. But not to worry; it was Drake’s lucky day because he is now on his way to finding a forever home where he will be loved and cherished.Drake is good with other dogs and he is described as "sweet and playful." He greets our volunteers at the kennel with a happy tail wag. He loves to be petted, and with his sleek and lustrous black coat, you will never want to stop petting him. His photos do not do him justice – trust us when we say this boy is stunning! Drake's smile lights up the room and his presence will light up your life! He would be a delightful walking or jogging buddy, happy to start the day with an early morning jaunt to take in all the wonderful scents that dogs like to sniff. Drake was cat tested at the vet's office where he is being kenneled - the cats hissed at him and he backed up. We do feel that if the cat ran, Drake would give chase so a cat-free home would be best for his handsome fella.One of our volunteers in AL went to spend some time with Drake recently. She told us, "He is a big ole' puppy in the way he acts! He is VERY affectionate and soaks up attention. He is an incredibly pretty boy and his smile is amazing. He loves to be petted and is just a doll of a dog." Lisa went on to say, "Drake acts like a young, goofy Golden in black fur." He keeps his kennel clean and has a moderate energy level. Drake shows no signs of abuse in the past, and is trusting and loving. He got a B- on leash skills so that is one small area that could use some improvement. All-in-all, this is one AWESOME dog!Drake weighs in at 62 lbs and has been neutered, brought up-to-date on vaccinations, and micro-chipped. He is under treatment for heartworm at one of our vet's office in AL and will be ready to come north around 5/20/17.If you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact Donna at SunshineGoldens@gmail.com to be considered to adopt Drake.If not yet approved, please visit our website to learn more and to submit an online application: http://sunshinegoldenrescue.com/adoption-info1.htmlPlease DO NOT use the ADOPT ME button to contact us, about this dog, as that will delay our ability to respond to your inquiry.Black "Goldens...?" Since the early 2000’s, animal rescue workers have noticed an increasing phenomena called, “Black Dog Syndrome,” which is that black dogs tend to be adopted more slowly than dogs of other coloring. As a result, there are more black dogs in shelters, and black dogs have a higher euthanization rate – purely because of the color of their coat! In a recent survey done by the adoption website “Petfinder,” Petfinder member shelters and rescue groups reported that most pets are listed for 12.5 weeks on Petfinder, whereas, less-adoptable pets (such as black, senior, and special needs pets) spend almost four times as long on Petfinder.You may ask, "what does this have to do with a Golden Retriever rescue?" Our rescue often goes a step further than basic rescue, by taking in dogs that might be thought of as “less adoptable” because of their physical condition. We have expanded that to include these special black dogs, many often thought to be Golden mixes. Since doing so, we have seen an overwhelming interest in these “black goldens,” and note that we begin receiving inquiries about them as son as we publish their pictures on our website! Like all of our dogs, these pups are just looking for a family that can see beyond their coloring to their true “golden heartedness,” and to love them and make them their own! Those who can, will be glad they did!Please direct any questions regarding your application status to: SGRRdogs@gmail.comThank you!

 . Gabriella .  . Gabriella .  . Gabriella .
  • Golden Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!Gabriella is a beautiful, red, purebred Golden Retrieveer who has had a rough beginning to her life. Gabby, who is about 2 years old, came to us from a suspected abusive home, where her former owners were threatening to euthanize her due to aggression. Rather than addressing the unwanted behaviors and working with a trainer, the former owners opted to heavily sedate her with trazadone. As the doses of medication wore off, Gabby would emerge from a semi-comatose condition in a defensive state of mind, perpetuating her reactive behavior. Hearing of her plight, a Good Samaritan stepped in and Gabby was given sanctuary at our rescue.Gabriella is now with a skilled training group in CT where they are working on behavioral correction. She has been taken off the sedative, since she arrived there, and her trainers report that her eyes are so much softer and more expressive. She has improved in leaps and bounds and we are seeing a new Gabriella emerge! She is so much more relaxed and open to affection. One of her trainers shared, “Gabriella is progressing very well. Gabriella has become my “24.” (The other trainers give a dog the nickname 24 (24/7) because they say it’s the dog I speak about the most and hence tend to work with a bit more… I don’t see it…LOL) She has improved, mastered, or eliminated all the areas of concern - guarding, growling, leash walking, dog interactions, "squirrels are around so you have no shot of me listening" (There must be a one word phrase for that...!), human socials, and lack of play interest. Her step commands have improved and her aloofness is decreasing daily. She is 100% off meds and we have not seen any issues to include allergies." Woooohooooo! What a great report card! Check out her video to see this girl's awesomeness!If you are an experienced dog owner with strong pack leadership skills, Gabriella just may be your next best buddy. It is our hope that we will have an adopter for this girl very soon who can take advantage of the extended training offered by PLR. Gabriella’s adopter will be able to visit the facility in East Hartford, CT once a week for 1 hour. Here, the potential pet parent can learn the training techniques used and will be able to start to bond with Gabby prior to going “home” and Gabs may get to go home for the weekends! A resident dog can even be brought along for a meet & greet. Whoever adopts this emerging butterfly is going to be gifted with a very best friend!If you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact Donna at SunshineGoldens@gmail.com to be considered to adopt Gabby.If not yet approved, please visit our website to learn more and to submit an online application: http://sunshinegoldenrescue.com/adoption-info1.htmlPlease DO NOT use the ADOPT ME button to contact us, about this dog, as that will delay our ability to respond to your inquiry.Please direct any questions regarding your application status to: SGRRdogs@gmail.comThank you!

  • Golden Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Gaston is an adorable Golden mix with teddy-bear ears who was found strolling the streets of Bridgeport, CT, all by himself in mid-March. He was brought to the City Shelter but no one claimed this gentle boy. He is estimated to be 6-7 years old and is on the thin side at 52 lbs.Now relaxing in a Sunshine Foster home, we are learning that Gaston is a delight! His Foster Mom brought him from the shelter, to his vet appointment, and then home for a good bath. In some of his pictures you can see that he wasn’t yet dry at the time of his photos! He enjoyed all the attention, tolerated the changes like a trooper, and is feeling so much better already. Gaston gets along great with the resident dog and was also good with other dogs at the Shelter. He enjoyed every one of the people he has met. His Foster Mom reported, “He is such a good boy….sweet, calm and gentle. He is very affectionate and we have given him the run of the house as he is quiet and has had no accidents at all." On a leash he pulled but that may be due to all the new smells and we think his leash skills will improve as he settles down. He may benefit from a joint supplement being a “young senior" guy, but he did not hesitate to jump right into the car to get out of the city shelter!!Gaston has been vaccinated, heartworm tested, and will be neutered within the next few days. He will then be ready for his forever home. If you would enjoy a super-sweet calm and gentle dog by your side, don’t hesitate to ask for him right away. He is in CT and would be happy to meet you!If you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact the Adoption Committee at CandyVS2@aol.com to be considered to adopt Gaston.If not yet approved, please visit our website to learn more and to submit an online application: http://sunshinegoldenrescue.com/adoption-info1.htmlPlease DO NOT use the ADOPT ME button to contact us, about this dog, as that will delay our ability to respond to your inquiry.Please direct any questions regarding your application status to: SGRRdogs@gmail.comThank you!

  • Golden Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
4/23/17 Foster Update: Golden Hailey and Charlie the Lab are still waiting for their forever home! Their needs are so simple and they such good, good dogs! Their wish list has just three things—few steps into the house, someone home a good part of the day, and low-calorie cookies readily available. They do not need fencing, training, expensive medicine, or a running partner — just some love, good company and a nice routine. Charlie’s allergy-related cough is easily managed with a very low dose of prednisone ($13/month), and Hailey’s seasonal allergy is controlled with her grain-free food. Other than a joint supplement which is recommended for all seniors, neither takes any other medicine. These two have energy, love to play, enjoy car rides, love toys and people, and get along great with other dogs and cats. They will fit in nicely with other pets, or on their own. They are gentle, social and happy dogs. Background: Originally from Louisiana, Hailey and Charlie are a bonded pair of seniors who lived with their former family since they were 2 years old. After losing both of their human parents, they had nowhere to go when no one else in the family could take them in, as much as they loved them. We promised to keep Hailey and Charlie together because they have lost their people and their home, and we do not want them to lose each other as well. Both are 11 years old, and about 62-65 lbs. You can take a look at them in this video, along with their Frisbee carrying foster sister.Lab mix, Charlie, has taken off several pounds in his foster home with proper food and exercise. He has more energy, can now manage the stairs off the deck, and loves his walks around the 3-acre property. He is doing so well that he no longer needs arthritis medication! Charlie smiles now, and he will sit and give you his paw. He speaks with one bark at dinnertime, or to tell you he needs to go potty. He is a dear Labbie boy who loves his Golden sister, the resident Golden, and anyone who will pet him or give him a cookie.Hailey, a classic Golden, runs for a stuffed baby to welcome you. She loves to fetch, although retrieving is more fun than giving the ball back. She is the quietest of the pair, but after dinner she takes time to celebrate her full tummy by having a nice roll on her back in the kitchen! Hailey loves children, attention, and her stuffed toys. Hailey lets you know it is time to go out by giving you the Golden Paw.Hailey and Charlie are spayed/neutered, up to date on their vaccinations, micro-chipped, and heartworm negative. This is a pair of easy keepers who will be wonderful companions in a quiet home where someone is around most of the day. They are being fostered in MA and are ready to meet their forever family!If you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact the Adoption Committee at CandyVS2@aol.com to be considered to adopt Hailey and Charlie.If not yet approved, please visit our website to learn more and to submit an online application: http://sunshinegoldenrescue.com/adoption-info1.htmlPlease DO NOT use the ADOPT ME button to contact us, about this dog, as that will delay our ability to respond to your inquiry.Please direct any questions regarding your application status to: SGRRdogs@gmail.comThank you!

Courtesy PostingHallie is a sweet, lovable senior Lab mix, around 8-9 years old. She's a little girl, around 55 lbs. She needs a securely fenced yard (otherwise apt to go off exploring on her own) and an adopter who won't need to leave her alone for long stretches of time - she thrives on human affection. She would prefer to be an only dog because she likes her humans all to herself.. She is super lovable, great with kids (but no small toddlers, please), and loves walks and car rides! Cats are an unknown - she has not been tested with them. Hallie is being fostered in southeastern MA.If you are interested in adopting Hallie, please apply with Southern Roots Rescue and ask for me, Hallie! http://southernrootsrescue.org/Thank You!Hallie is a Courtesy Posting and not an SGRR dog.

  • Golden Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Introducing Leia, a sweet 43-lb. treasure estimated to be 8-9 years old. We believe Leia to be a Golden mixed with everything nice. Leia was brought to the Bridgeport, CT, animal shelter in the cold of winter as a stray and remained there for several weeks when dog adoptions are less active. Leia began to exhibit signs of kennel stress, although she became attached to one of the Animal Control officers who posted a plea on Leia’s behalf. When Sunshine learned of Leia’s plight we knew she deserved a chance at a good home. Leia is now in a Sunshine foster home. In less than a week her anxieties from kennel life have quickly fallen away as she relaxes, and we are learning what a smart, good girl she is.It is obvious that Leia was someone’s loved dog. She knows commands sit, stay, and come, walks well on a leash, and is well mannered in the house. Her Foster Mom reports, “Leia is a joy! She has had no accidents, and when we left her alone for a couple hours we returned to find her sleeping on her bed, which she loves. She gets excited when she sees her dinner bowl and does loop-de-loops! We ask her to sit, which she does, and then she eats her food slowly. She also takes treats gently. Leia loves affection and has started to lean in to us when she is petted, and roll over for belly rubs. She has a nice energy level and loves going out for walks, usually 2-3 miles each day.”Leia greets all people in a friendly way and enjoys attention from anyone she meets. On the drive to her foster home she gave our volunteer driver kisses at every stop light! She likes her new dog-walker friend Danny, and loves her Foster Dad, who calls her “The Red Panda!” She went for a ride to visit her Foster’s parents, and had a great outing, enjoying their yard and meeting new people, as well as the car ride. It was a great day for Leia, and you can see from her pictures what a happy dog she is. Take a look at Leia’s beautiful coat, which is shiny, full and gorgeous.We were told by the Animal Shelter that Leia is not friendly toward other dogs. Since being with Sunshine, we have been cautious about Leia’s interaction with dogs, and have not seen her exhibit aggression. Instead, when she sees other dogs while out on her walks, she barks and wags her tail. She is easily redirected when asked to stand quietly as a dog goes past across the street, simply watching them and wagging her tail. We feel, however, that Leia probably will be happiest as an only dog in her home. She has shown us she is so happy and good having her people to herself, and we believe she deserves to be someone’s special dog.Leia is vaccinated, micro-chipped, and has had a senior wellness checkup. She does not require any medications and has no mobility problems. Leia will have surgery to remove some small mammary gland tumors as well as a small cyst on her leg that is benign. Leia is living in New York and would be happy to meet you!If you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact the Adoption Committee at CandyVS2@aol.com to be considered to adopt Leia.If not yet approved, please visit our website to learn more and to submit an online application: http://sunshinegoldenrescue.com/adoption-info1.htmlPlease DO NOT use the ADOPT ME button to contact us, about this dog, as that will delay our ability to respond to your inquiry.Please direct any questions regarding your application status to: SGRRdogs@gmail.comThank you!

  • Labrador Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
When we first learned of Mary Jane, she was in a rural LA shelter being treated for terrible neck wounds. No one could determine with certainty how she had been injured so badly. Mary Jane was not about to let her circumstances get her down and, with courage and spirit, she began her recovery with an AL vet. She is recovering nicely, her fur is growing in over her injured neck, and we have found her to be a lovely, affectionate dog who will blossom into a loving companion.Mary Jane is a 7-8 year old female Labrador Retriever who is beautiful and almost always has a smile on her face. She is a classic Lab with her gorgeous cream coat and gold ears, as well as her body structure, stance, and social personality. She has behaved well at the vet clinic when out in the yard, not barking or showing negative behavior toward other dogs. She loves to play with squeaky toys and has a good amount of energy. Her favorite toy is a ball with holes in it that has treats stuffed inside. Oh, and now that she has discovered treats, they are a favorite of hers, and she takes them gently. Mary Jane is a bit of a diamond in the rough who is just beginning to learn a dog’s life can be good. She deserves someone who will take time to teach her basic obedience and leash skills, and she will love a good amount of daily exercise. She loves attention and wants so much to learn and to please her humans. If you would like a walking partner who will turn heads, she is your girl!! This happy, social girl will be an amazing dog for someone who will help her grow to her full potential.Mary Jane is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, and micro-chipped. At 65 lbs. she is a little on the thin side. Mary Jane is completing heartworm treatment and will be ready for her forever home the first of June. Don’t miss out on this pretty girl with the cream coat and joyous personality!If you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact the Adoption Committee at CandyVS2@aol.com to be considered to adopt sweet Mary Jane.If not yet approved, please visit our website to learn more and to submit an online application: http://sunshinegoldenrescue.com/adoption-info1.htmlPlease DO NOT use the ADOPT ME button to contact us, about this dog, as that will delay our ability to respond to your inquiry.Please direct any questions regarding your application status to: SGRRdogs@gmail.comThank you!

I have an an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!Mikey is a gorgeous 5 year-old purebred male Golden whose former family had decided they no longer wanted him and were in the process of moving. They attempted to re-home Mikey themselves and posted Mikey on Facebook for $50. Fortunately, the initial placement fell through and our rescue was contacted to help "rescue" Mikey.Because one of the other dogs in the home did not like Mikey, this fella was relegated to living most of his time outside, unless the weather was especially awful. This is no way for a dog to live but now Mikey has an Adoption Pending and he is going to be living as a treasured companion should live!This chunky monkey arrived to our rescue already neutered, but weighing 130 pounds and heartworm positive. He is now on a metabolic formula food to help start his weight loss campaign and has began his heartworm treatment. Mikey is keeping his kennel clean and is not tearing up any of his bedding or toys, a good sign that this boy is house-broken. He has lived with other dogs, cats, and with children as well. This is an all 'round NICE boy!Mikey has been brought up-to-date on his vaccinations and is now micro-chipped. He will be arriving to his family in the northeast in late April.

  • Golden Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Reggie, or “Red” as he is affectionately known, came to our rescue after having a chronic ear infection for over a year. His former owners cared lovingly for this 4 year-old purebred boy and had a surgical procedure done on his ear to help with drainage. Unfortunately, Reggie came down with a MRCA infection in the same ear a few weeks after the surgery, requiring an additional procedure. Because the continuing comprehensive care that Reggie needed became too taxing on his elderly owners, the family felt it best for Reggie to find a new home. With the infection now behind him, Reggie has been staying with a skilled behaviorist in CT where they have worked to desensitize Reggie’s reactive behavior toward having his ear touched. As can be seen in this video, wonderful progress has been made and "Red" is nearly ready to head to his forever home.Reggie's former family shared such superb details with us, "Reggie gets very excited when anyone comes into the house as he loves people. Sometimes when people first come in, he jumps up, but only enough to get his feet off the floor slightly; he does not jump on people. He loves attention, always loved being scratched, and he loved to sit on my father’s lap like a big lap dog! Reggie is crate trained, trust-worthy in the house, and he likes car rides. He does not have much experience on a leash and got most of his exercise in the fenced in yard where he loved fetching tennis balls. Reggie has been with other family dogs in his house. He does fine with them inside and especially loves to run with them in the yard. He enjoys spending time outside in the nice weather and would love to be part of his adopters' daily routine. Reggie knows the commands, “sit,” “down,” “stay,” and “paw.” We have never seen any food issues at all – although my parents spoiled him with table food, so he is a bit of a picky eater. He doesn't like thunder, of course, but I haven't seen anything else bother him. He loves stuffed toys and carries them around like babies!”Reggie is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and is heartworm negative. Reggie is reported to be good with children. However, because of the sensitivity related to his ear, our rescue will only place him in a home with children over the age of 12. Additionally, his adopter will need to be mindful not to put Reggie in compromising situations.If you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact Donna at SunshineGoldens@gmail.com to be considered to adopt handsome Reggie.If not yet approved, please visit our website to learn more and to submit an online application: http://sunshinegoldenrescue.com/adoption-info1.htmlPlease DO NOT use the ADOPT ME button to contact us, about this dog, as that will delay our ability to respond to your inquiry.Please direct any questions regarding your application status to: SGRRdogs@gmail.comThank you!

I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!Divorce is a painful process, and not just for people -- it can negatively affect a dog as well. Sweet Selina was tuned in to our rescue by her owner after her family went through a divorce. As a police officer, working 16 hour days, he did not have adequate time to spend with his beloved pal. He had been leaving her out in the yard all day, with his nephew was coming over after school to play with her daily. One day, the nephew left the gate open and Selina got out and got bumped by a car. Fortunately, she had no injuries and her dad realized he needed to find a better situation for her. Selina is good with other dogs and grew up with kids. She weighs about 60 lbs. and had her 6th birthday in December. This girl has a ton of energy and loves to fetch.Selina is now with a foster family in AL. Her foster mom shares, “Selina is absolutely gorgeous. She is deep red and is so pretty. She is very sweet and loves attention. If you’re only petting her with one hand, she nudges at the other hand so she has both petting her. Because she can't do much while on heart worm treatment we can't do a whole lot of playing, but she does like tennis balls and she would really love to play fetch and she does like other toys as well. She knows the commands "sit" and "lay down," but may have to be coaxed a little to do them I think because she is excited, but boy, is she is a smart girl! She does tend to pull on the leash so she may need a little more work there. Selina has had no accidents in the house - we keep her confined to a room while we are gone and she does well. The only thing she has chewed on, just a little, is her own blanket.Selina has been spayed, brought up-to-date on vaccinations, and will be micro-chipped prior to transport. She needs to complete treatment for heartworm and we expect she will be able to come north to be directly adopted around 4/22/17!

Valerie was spotted in a cemetery in Rayne, LA, in early March. She was with a Border Collie companion and it was obvious both had been abandoned there, no longer wanted. Valerie and her friend were taken to a local shelter, and both were taken in by rescues. We were the lucky rescue who took in beautiful Valerie!!Valerie is a female Golden mix estimated to be 7 years old, weighing 45 lbs and slightly underweight. How anyone could have abandoned a dog as nice as Valerie is astounding. She is as sweet inside as she is beautiful outside, with amber eyes that are almost green. While staying at a vet clinic the staff fell in love with her. She is a happy dog who wags her tail often, loves attention and is a well-behaved lady. She does not jump up or tear up anything, and she is house trained. She is not a chow hound and doesn’t always clean her bowl, but she did get tempted by some food left on the counter at her foster’s home! Valerie walks nicely on a leash and she gets along fine with other dogs. She likes to be scratched and lays back in your lap for petting. In classic Golden fashion, Valerie sticks close to her humans.It is obvious Valerie was neglected in her former life as she had worms, fleas and bad skin with skimpy fur on her tail from flea allergies, and of course she tested positive for heartworm. It was determined that Valerie should complete her heartworm treatment before she can be spayed, and so her spay surgery must wait. Sunshine will cover the cost of her spay should she find her forever home before that occurs. She has been brought up to date on her vaccinations and micro-chipped. Valerie has just started heartworm treatment and will be ready to travel around June 1. She will bring so much happiness to your home!If you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact the Adoption Committee at CandyVS2@aol.com to be considered to adopt Valerie.If not yet approved, please visit our website to learn more and to submit an online application: http://sunshinegoldenrescue.com/adoption-info1.htmlPlease DO NOT use the ADOPT ME button to contact us, about this dog, as that will delay our ability to respond to your inquiry.Please direct any questions regarding your application status to: SGRRdogs@gmail.comThank you! About Our Rescue Before being approved to adopt, all potential adopters will be required to complete our online application and participate in our pre-adoption review process. The process includes the completion of an online application, a reference from the applicants' vet, a phone interview, and a visit to the applicants' home. The application process helps us determine what type of Golden would be best suited for the applicants' life style. In some cases, the specific dog you are interested in may have found a home before this process is complete or further assessment may indicate that this dog is not the right match for your family. We are frequently getting new Goldens in need of a home, so we encourage you to apply and complete the application process so that when the right dog comes along you will be ready.The information provided on each dog is based on the observations of our vets, volunteers, fosters, and when available, trainers. While we do our best to report any and all issues, SGRR does not make any guarantees as to the health or temperament of any dog. Dogs evolve differently in different environments and we cannot predict with any certainty how the dog you adopt will behave and adapt in your home.SGRR Adoption Fees (subject to change)** Puppies under 6 months $650 Young dogs 6 months - 6 years $550 Young dogs - Special Needs $450 Senior dogs 7 - 9 years $450 Seniors dogs 10 years and older $350 Senior dogs - Special Needs $300 Young Bonded Pairs $850 Senior Bonded Pairs $750**Please note: The fees listed represent a slight increase and are effective for applications received after June 1 2014. We regret the need to increase the fees for our dogs, but found it necessary due to the increased costs we are faced with for each dog's care and placement.A contract is signed on the day of adoption. Under the terms of the contract, all adopters are required to bring their SGRR dog to a vet within 7 business days. All dogs receive basic veterinary care prior to adoption. However, if an adopter's vet identifies an illness that an adopter is not willing to treat, then the dog may be returned and a full refund would be provided.Most of our dogs are fostered in private homes. We do not have a facility to visit. We are committed to our dogs before, during, and after adoption! To this end, the rescue retains an interest in each dog and our dogs can never be surrendered, re-homed, or sold. Should an adopter no longer be able to keep their SGRR dog, SGRR must be notified so that we can take the dog back into rescue and place it into another home.

Courtesy PostingZorro, a handsome and mature 9-10 year old black Labrador Retriever, originally came into the Town of North Hempstead NY Animal Shelter as a stray in October of 2015. When Zorro first came in, he had a slew of infections, including severe chronic issues with his skin and ears that had been left untreated. After fixing up this poor guy, including surgery, he was adopted out to a great home in February of 2016. Unfortunately, his new owner has fallen ill and can sadly no longer care for him. Zorro is independent in nature, housebroken, and is very energetic for his age. He loves to go for long walks- including romps in the snow! Zorro needs continued maintenance for his ear condition, and would do best in a home with no other animals.Zorro is up-to-date on his vaccines, neutered, heartworm negative, micro-chipped, and ready to meet you!! If you are interested in this handsome boy, please contact Genna Tudda at the Town of North Hempstead Animal Shelter, 516-869-6311. Thank you!Zorro is a Courtesy Posting and not an SGRR dog.
