  • Golden Retriever

  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Bandit is an adorable (and we mean ADORABLE!) 12 month-old, 50 lb boy who was turned into a shelter in Monroe County, AL along with his purebred Golden Retriever mother. Neither of the dogs had been given much direction in their lives (and probably not much food) and the owner’s boyfriend got tired of the dogs digging in the trash. Bandit is sweetly shy when he first meets someone or encounters a new situation. He is now very comfortable at the vet’s kennel where he has come out of his shell and is the life of the party. Bandit enjoys getting petted and being doted upon. He loves his Kong and his rope toys. Like most puppies, Bandit gets along nicely with other dogs and likes playing with them. He is fairly submissive and would probably follow the lead of a resident dog in his new home. He is an active boy, with an energy level that is appropriate for a 1 year-old dog. He needs work on his leash skills but is eager to please. The vet tech who cares for him shared, "Bandit likes to run and play. Mealtime is definitely a favorite time of day for him! He is a sweet and playful boy!" Bandit’s shiny black coat is simply gorgeous. With his white-tipped paws, it looks like this little pup stepped in some paint. And the white splotch on his chest, makes him look as though he is wearing a tuxedo. He is just so adorable! Bandit’s soulful brown eyes will steal your heart away. Bandit is heartworm negative, neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations. He has been and micro-chipped and will be ready to travel north to his forever home on 1/13/2018. Rescued dogs come with a range of needs - from behavioral to emotional to medical. When approved applicants adopt such dogs, they agree to continue the rehabilitation we have begun. If you would like to be part of Bandit's rescue story, and you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact Donna at SunshineGoldens@gmail.com to be considered to adopt Bandit. 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! If not yet approved, please visit our website to learn more and to submit an online application: http://sunshinegoldenrescue.com/adoption-info1.html Please DO NOT use the ASK ABOUT 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.com Thank 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. We reserve the right to remove a dog at any time should we find the adopter is no longer providing proper care. Adopters agree to follow up visits as needed. Please be a ray of light for this Sunshine dog and make a tax deductible donation toward medical care and other expenses. Every cent of your generosity goes directly toward the care of a Sunshine dog.

Courtesy Posting Hallie 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.

  • German Shepherd Dog, Chow Chow
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Courtesy Posting Heather, a stunning Shepherd/Chow mix, was found as a stray and brought to the Cumberland County shelter in NJ. Surprisingly, she went unclaimed. She is a sweetheart of a girl who just loves people and would love to have a family to call her own. She can be a bit unsure of people at first, but she quickly warms up. She is very well mannered and LOVES belly rubs! She has plush golden-colored fur with a contrasting black designer-style headband on the top of her head and on her ears. Oh, and look at that big bushy plume of a tail! Just gorgeous! Heather is dog selective, but with the right dog and a proper greeting, she can be okay. While at the shelter, she had several meet and greets with other dogs. She was introduced to a male pit-mix and she was fine with him. The shelter staff also tested her with cats and she wasn't sure what to make of them at first. Mr. Kitty got in a good swipe and she quickly gave him a wide berth. So with proper supervision and introductions, she may be able to co-habitate with cats as well. Heather is up-to-date on her shots and will be spayed. For more information about German Shepherd Rescue of New Jersey's adoption policies and to access the online application, please read and review our Adoption Process at: http://www.gsrnj.org/adoption-process.html Thank you! Heather is a Courtesy Posting and is not an SGRR dog.

  • Golden Retriever
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you! Tallulah was turned into a shelter, in St Landry's Parish LA, by her family who was moving. They told the shelter staff that they bought her as a purebred Golden Retriever and that she is registered with the CKC. When our vet examined Tallulah today, she found that some of her adult teeth are not even fully in yet. These teeth come in about about 5-6 months of age, so that is where we are estimating her age to be. Tallulah is super sweet but has been scared and confused with all of the upheaval in her little life. The volunteer who transported her for us told us, "She's in very good hands, literally. She was so frightened, she wouldn't walk. We had to carry her in." Tallulah weighs about 38 lbs and has some growing to do. She is heartworm negative and has been brought up-to-date on her vaccinations. She will be spayed and micro-chipped before heading north to her excited forever family on 1/20/18. Tallulah has found her forever home but hopes you will consider one of SGRR's other dogs in need.
