I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!Amber is a stunning purebred Golden Retriever, estimated to be about 1 year-old. She came into the Louisiana shelter clean, with nails trimmed, and pearly white teeth. Gosh, she had to be someone's dog, and we just cannot figure out why no one came looking for her.Amber is a little timid, but warms up quickly. She is a tad head-shy when you reach for her - like maybe she had been hit in her previous life - but she exhibits absolutely no aggressive behavior. She walks well on a leash and does not pull at all, but she does need some leash guidance, as she changes from left to right and will try to go through your legs. Amber attempts to jump up, but immediately gets down when corrected. She listens to the "no" command, and will take well to training. She rides well in a car and is housebroken. She whines when she needs to go outside and the whining gets louder if you ignore her, until you take her to potty. Smart girl! She slept in a crate at her foster mom's bedside. She whined at first, but then went to sleep when the lights were turned out and she slept all night long. Amber got along with all of the dogs in the foster home and showed no aggression. Her tail was wagging from their initial meeting until she left her foster home. She showed a curious interest in the cat, but did not charge at her and obeyed when the foster mom said "no." This is a wonderful, smart, gentle girl. She will make a great family member. She just needs someone to put in a little time with her. She is very smart and eager to learn. Amber is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, micro-chipped, and heartworm negative. She will be ready to travel north in mid-November to be directly adopted.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.

  • Labrador Retriever, Golden Retriever

Meet Dale, a super-handsome “black Golden” who was found with his Golden friend, Chip, wandering on “Bad Dog Road” in a small town in southern AL. Sadly, many dogs are dumped on Bad Dog Road, but Chip and Dale were lucky enough to be found and taken to the Monroe County Animal Shelter. At first we believed Chip and Dale were a bonded pair, but as we got to know them we found they do not need each other and we will find each his own special home. (Chip is just beginning heartworm treatment and we will be posting his story on our website shortly.)Dale is about 8 years old and probably a Black Lab mixed with Golden Retriever. He is Mr. Personality and likes to speak back to you with a happy Woo-Woo-Woo when you talk directly to him. He is starved for attention and is full of himself, hoping for every toy, every pet, food, and all the love he can gather up. Dale is a good eater and walks along fine on a leash. But he needs some practice with his leash skills. Although he gets along fine with other dogs, we feel he deserves to be the center of someone’s world and will be happiest as an only dog. This sweet and gorgeous dog adores people and is yearning to be loved by his very own family.Dale is neutered, updated on his vaccinations, heartworm negative, and micro-chipped. He had a fresh grooming and is getting ready to travel north to a new family on December 9.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 Dale's rescue story, and you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact the Adoption Committee at CandyVS2@aol.com to be considered to adopt Dale. 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.htmlPlease DO NOT use the ASK ABOUT button to contact us, about this dog, as that will delay our ability to respond to your inquiry.

She had been adopted as a puppy, but over time her family realized she needed a calmer home. Daphne weighs about 70 lbs, is house-trained, crate-trained, up to date on her vaccinations, heartworm negative, and spayed. Because Daphne is somewhat nervous, a calm, quiet, child free home will be best for her.Daphne is in Norwalk, CT.

I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!Grace is a gentle senior Yellow Lab who ended up in an Alabama shelter as a stray. As soon as her stray hold was up, Grace was brought to our Foster Cheryl, who helps so many of our seniors. She tells us that Grace is easy as pie and soft as a cotton ball!Grace is estimated to be 10-12 years old and is on the thin side at just over 40 lbs. She has wonderful house manners! She goes to the door to ask to go out, with no potty accidents. She sleeps well without a crate but goes into a crate easily when asked. She has selected the rug in the kitchen, a corner in the family room, and the dining room as her favorite places. She is a good eater and does not counter surf. Grace meets new people nicely and went right up to her Foster Dad to be petted when she first met him. Grace also gets along fine with senior resident dog Mae.Grace loves wandering in the fenced back yard. She does not have good recall and we are unsure if she is hard of hearing, or simply chooses to be stubborn in order to continue exploring! Grace does fine with the five steps off the deck. Much earlier in her life she must have had a dislocated hip that was repaired, as there is scar tissue from the repair. Her gait is slightly off from this but she gets around fine without mobility issues. She takes joint supplements which are recommended because she is a senior citizen. Grace has just started heartworm treatment and will be ready for her home in late November. She is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, and micro-chipped. Whoever provides quiet and easy Grace with a nice retirement life is going to have a sweet companion indeed. She is a good girl and soft as silk.Rescued dogs come with a range of needs - from behavioral to emotional to medical.

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.

Courtesy PostingHeather, 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.htmlThank you!Heather is a Courtesy Posting and is not an SGRR dog.

I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!11/3/17 Foster Update: Jenkins has had quite a time of it. He spent several days at a vet clinic getting treated for ear infections, skin irritation, bloodwork, heartworm testing and vaccinations, plus neutering. A tumor on his flank which was found to be a mast cell cancer was removed at the time of his neuter surgery. Jenkins stayed in a loving foster home to recover from his surgery while we waited for pathology results. And we are thrilled to say the results showed the tumor was not an aggressive type, there were clean margins, and Jenkins is cleared for adoption!!! He continues to recover from skin irritation and ear infections and will be getting his sutures removed within a few days. Then this good boy is ready to meet a forever family! Through all his treatment and changes in his life, he has shown us he is sweet as can be. Jenkins loves to sniff while out on walks, and he gets along great with the two resident dogs in his foster home. He has learned that a dog bed is a great place to sleep, takes his medicine with no problem, and follows his humans around the house. He wasn’t quite sure what dog toys are for, but he is learning, and he also loves to help with stick clean-up! While it appears he has not had an easy life, Jenkins is ready for all the good things that are ahead for him.Jenkins' Story: Jenkins cannot stop smiling since being rescued and getting the attention and care he desperately needed. He was found in CT under a bush, emaciated and unable to stand. The local Animal Control officer needed the help of police to carry him to a van and a nearby vet. There he remained for three weeks, gaining strength and putting on much-needed weight. Ready for a Rescue Group to help him, Sunshine stepped in to find him a home.Jenkins is estimated to be 9-10 years old and currently weighs 70 lbs. He adores people and thinks everyone must know him! He also loves dogs and even got along great with the office cat. Jenkins walks nicely on a leash without pulling and rides quietly in a car. He has a nice energy level, although his back end is weak. This may be from a complete lack of exercise, suspected due to the callouses on his elbow and leg from staying in one spot. If so, regular walks and a joint supplement will help him get stronger.Stay tuned as we wait for Jenkins to complete his vetting and evaluation. It is going to be a great experience to give Jenkins his forever home! He appreciates every kindness he is shown and it will warm your heart to see this sweet boy blossom.Rescued dogs come with a range of needs - from behavioral to emotional to medical.

  • 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!JET is a handsome two-year-old red-headed boy who was the victim of divorce. When the divorce took place, Dad bought his daughter a car, while Mom bought her daughter a Golden Retriever puppy. The daughter loved her pup, but both teenagers and puppies grow up. When the daughter went off to college, Jet was left at home. And when the house was sold off, Jet was left behind in the backyard! A kind neighbor fed him and gave Jet water, but being left alone in the yard, he would frequently escape and go wandering off, seeking human companionship. One of the other neighbors threatened to shoot the dog and the Good Samaritan knew Jet truly needed rescuing and reached out for help.Tommy, our driver, went to pick Jet up from the yard and told us, "He came to me in the yard before I got out of the van. I petted him and then put the leash on him - as easy as pie! He is a beautiful red boy who is very friendly and apparently loves to be around people!""Jet is one of the most stunningly handsome dogs I have ever seen," said Lisa, our lead volunteer in Alabama. He has a beautiful deep red coat that is wavy and as soft as silk. He has a handsome blocky head, with that classic Golden look. He looks like his face belongs on a box of dog biscuits. Jet loves to retrieve and will fetch a ball for as long as you will throw the ball to him, bringing it back and dropping it nearby. He thinks he's a big old lap dog and likes to sit right on his humans. He especially likes it when you hold his paw and pet him.Not much training came Jet's way in his former life, but that's okay - that life is behind him now. From here on out, it's the good life for this fine fellow who is so eager to please and to simply belong. Jet is up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, neutered, and micro-chipped. He weighs in at about 72 lbs, and could probably carry a few more pounds on his frame without being overweight. He will be ready to come north to his forever home in mid-November, just in time for TURKEY!Rescued dogs come with a range of needs - from behavioral to emotional to medical.

I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!10/1/17 Foster Update: Friendly, sweet Kady is doing so well in a foster home in CT. Her long black fur is growing in quickly now and she looks prettier every day! She is very affectionate and her fosters say it is like she has always been there. She loves people and other dogs equally, and follows her humans and the two resident dogs around the house. Lady gives kisses, and will gently lift her paw to you, asking to be petted. She will also raise her paw for a treat. Hard to resist this charming dog!! She knows commands “Sit,” Stay” and “Shake,” and she will sit and wait politely for cookies or her dinner. Her favorite resting spot is on a blanket on the floor. She will get on the couch, but only if invited. She barks an alert if someone comes to the door and quiets as soon as she is asked.Her Foster Mom and Dad say Kady is the most friendly and easygoing of all their foster dogs. She has a moderate energy level. Kady plays nicely outside or with her tuggie toys, and then settles down easily inside. Kady absolutely loves the fenced back yard and prances in the yard showing off her cute floppy ears: Kady in Yard sep17Her fosters discovered that Kady dislikes being leash walked with a flat collar and tries hard to back out of it. However, with an Easy Walker harness, she is a different dog and walks politely at an easy pace without pulling. You can watch her getting used to her harness in this video: Kady WalkingIt is Kady’s wish to have a yard for play time in her forever home. She can be happy with other dogs or as an only dog, with children or with adults only. As long as she has people nearby, she is a happy girl. Kady is waiting patiently for someone to see that, although her coat is black rather than gold, she is a golden-hearted, blue-eyed treasure.Kady's Story: "Hi, my name is Kady with a “d” and I am a Black Lab mix. I was brought to a shelter in AL. I am 7 years old and weigh 41 lbs, although I need to gain weight until I reach about 50 lbs. I am so embarrassed about my appearance! I’ve lost much of my long black coat because of a skin issue, even around my eyes. Ugh! I’m taking medicine and the people caring for me say my fur will all grow back before long. I can’t wait!The staff at the vet clinic can tell that I had a family once. I am friendly and affectionate with everyone. I am not timid, nor do I behave as if I have been abused, and they say I am just the sweetest girl ever! I know a few commands, and I am spayed and heartworm negative. Now I am also up to date on all my shots and taking my medicine every day to help my skin. Please ask for me, Kady, if you would like to be my special person or family. I promise you will not be sorry you gave me a chance, and I will love you so much."Rescued dogs come with a range of needs - from behavioral to emotional to medical.

  • Golden Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Prefers home without cats
I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!Mac was once a beloved companion when his former family adopted him at the age of one from a local rescue group. He had lived with them for the past 2 years, when his family was suddenly torn apart by divorce. His mom took it hard and she packed up the children, moved to Oregon, and left him with his dad. Dad was always terribly busy and really had no interest in having a dog, so he gave him to a friend for safe keeping. This kind woman worked on socializing Mac. You see, in his former home, he was kept crated a large amount of the time and the kids even played with Mac through the crate. Mac enjoyed his time in the safe refuge of this temporary home. He learned about being house-broken, learned some basic commands, and how to walk pretty well on a leash. He lived amicably with 3 other smaller dogs there, and got along with the horses too. Mac find cats too interesting and needs a home without any kitties, or chickens for that matter. A situation arose when a free-range chicken flew into the fenced-in area where Max played. What was a dog to do except give chase? You can guess what happened from there... Knowing Mac was only there for a temporary stay, it became time for him to move forward in his life and find his forever home, which is when our rescue was called.At our vet's office, Mac was given a bath, which he LOVED, and had his nails trimmed. He gave one paw and then the next during his pedicure. He even sat very nicely when his matted fur was brushed out so he did not have to be shaved. He takes treats gently and has a soft mouth. Mac is an active boy and will need an adopter who can take him on walks or hikes, just like he has seen in LL Bean catalogs. Like all dogs adopted through SGRR, Mac will always need to be leashed in any unfenced areas, per our adoption contract, which includes open fields and swimming. Rescue dogs are treasures and it is up to us to protect them.Mac is up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, previously neutered, and micro-chipped. He weighs in at about 110 lbs, without being overweight. Mac is a GORGEOUS boy who will turn heads when you are out walking with him. But he is not just a handsome face - he is smart, affectionate, and sweet as sugar! He will be ready to come north to his forever home in mid-November, just in time for Thanksgiving! Mac hopes he truly has something to be thankful for - his forever home!Rescued dogs come with a range of needs - from behavioral to emotional to medical.

  • 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!Introducing Margie, a sweet and gentle senior girl who ended up in a sad shelter in LA. A Golden mix estimated to be 8-9 years old, Margie appears to have been neglected for quite a while. But her fortunes have changed now that she is with our rescue!Upon intake Margie was extremely thin, had parasites, a large growth on a front paw, and a dew claw that needed to be removed, along with a poor coat and teeth. She is currently staying with our Southern Foster, Cheryl, who specializes in helping our neediest dogs begin their recoveries. Margie is putting on weight with the help of Cheryl’s peanut butter sandwiches and lots of TLC. The best news is that the growth on Margie’s paw is a benign growth, which will be removed! Before long Margie will be ready for her forever home, and she will be able to travel north just after Thanksgiving.Margie is quickly relaxing and getting comfortable, with a happy wagging tail. She has very nice house manners, is house trained, and is an easy dog to have near you. She loves being near her humans. In fact, the first night in foster care she barked when left alone. But this has stopped as she settles into her routine and realizes she has not been left. Margie walks nicely on a leash and has a moderate to low energy level. She is just discovering creatures comforts like a dog bed, and enjoys cuddling. This gentle dog deserves to be loved and spoiled for the rest of her life! We are still learning about Margie but if you are looking for a sweet, laid-back companion, ask about Margie!Rescued dogs come with a range of needs - from behavioral to emotional to medical.

  • 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!Oakleigh is an adorable mini Golden mix who is about 2 years old. He was picked up as a stray, wandering around with a chewed up rope around his neck, in the area of Oakleigh, AL. We assume he had been kept outside on this rope, got tired of being alone and hungry, and chewed his way free. He was picked up by the local animal control officer, taken to a high kill shelter in Mobile City, AL and our rescue was contacted to save this boy.Oakleigh is a happy fellow who has never met a stranger. He warms up quickly when making new friends and loves, loves, loves other dogs. As a matter of fact, in the over-crowded shelter, he was kenneled with two other dogs and was amicable to both, even in tight quarters. Weighing in at only 38 lbs, this little man needs to put on a few pounds to be at a healthy weight - probably topping out at about 45 lbs. He he has all the features of a purebred Golden Retriever, but has the look of a perpetual puppy. He is the perfect size for an adopter who wants a Golden-style personality, but in a smaller package. Many folks seek these mini-Goldens as they are easier to manage and pick up if need be. What Oakleigh may lack in the proportion of a full-size Golden, he makes up for with the size of the love he has to offer. In his heart he is a big dog and you hardly even notice that he is small. Oakleigh is an active boy and his adopter will need to be active as well. Oakleigh soaks up attention and is a love-bug of a dog; affectionate and a cuddly.Oakleigh has been neutered, brought up-to-date on vaccinations, and micro-chipped. He needs to complete his treatment for heartworm and will come north to be directly adopted on 12/2/17!Rescued dogs come with a range of needs - from behavioral to emotional to medical.

  • Chesapeake Bay Retriever

Meet Punkin, a Golden-hearted Chesapeake Bay Retriever. Her family left her behind, but her forever family will be adopting a treasure! Punkin is a friendly, affectionate, 9-year old Chesapeake Bay Retriever. Punkin lived with her family all her life. Although she spent her days mostly in the back yard, it was the life she knew, and suddenly it all changed. Her owners were moving and did not plan to take her along. A kind person stepped in to help find her a new home. But luck was not on Punkin’s side, and when time ran out she was taken to the Mobile City Shelter. SGRR had heard about Punkin’s fate and as soon as we had space available, we called around to ask if she had been adopted, and learned she was still at the shelter. And that was the day that Punkin’s luck changed for the better. This sweet senior girl is now safe and we promised her a loving home.While Chessies were first bred in Maryland as serious field bird-hunting dogs, at home they are known to be wonderful family dogs, loyal and loving. Chessies are smart, and respond best to kind, patient training. They love to be near their people but generally do not need to be right underfoot. Punkin is easy and docile, and will capture your heart with her pretty smile. She is happy, sweet as Southern pecan pie, and loves attention. Chessies are reputed to be hesitant about new people and will measure up strangers before accepting then, but not Punkin!! When a new person approaches Punkin, she does a gleeful bouncy dance in greeting, so happy to be spoken to or petted. Her owners said she is good with children and other animals.Punkin is spayed and heartworm negative. She will have some small growths around her mouth removed, complete her vetting, and get her microchip. She weighs about 80 lbs but is not overweight, and she has no mobility problems. She is in great shape and is not a couch potato senior, but would love to go along and be included with her peeps. Punkin will be ready to travel north on December 9 so do not hesitate to ask about her. She is unassuming and precious, and it will be so rewarding to make her doggie dreams come true.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.

  • Golden Retriever

  • Spayed/Neutered
I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!Saint is a handsome 3 year-old Golden boy who spent much of his early life on the end of a chain as an outside dog. When his elderly owner could not provide even the most basic care, he turned Saint into a kill shelter in rural Louisiana. Owner turn-ins are the first to be euthanized in southern shelters. Strays at least have a 5-10 day hold, giving time for an owner to claim then, which also gives time for a rescue to step in and pull the dog. But thankfully, our rescue was called and Saint's life was saved!Severely underweight at 54 lbs, this boy should be approximately 70 lbs. Saint is very food motivated, which should aid in training. He takes treats gently and will sit and await for another cookie, always wanting just one more. When our volunteer visits with the dogs at the vet's kennel, and she is paying attention to another of our dogs, Saint will bark to get her attention with his "look-at-me" attitude. His personality overflows with happiness! Saint loves to run and, with some work on his leash skills, will make an excellent walking, running, or hiking buddy.Saint is up-to-date on his vaccinations, micro-chipped, and neutered. Because his former owner did not keep him on heartworm preventive, Saint is presently being treated for heartworm. Once he completes his heartworm treatment, he will be ready to travel north to be adopted in mid-to-late November - he hopes it will be in time for TURKEY! This affectionate boy is not going to last!Rescued dogs come with a range of needs - from behavioral to emotional to medical.

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.Please visit our website at: http://sunshinegoldenrescue.com to learn more about our rescue and to make a Donation to support Sunshine Golden Retriever Rescue.THANK YOU!

I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!Darla and her 3 puppies were brought into Mobile County Animal Control by a woman who said they wandered on to her porch. We found it amazing that the pups, who were only about 1 week old at the time, could wander onto her porch. Some shelters charge a drop-off fee when an owner turns in a dog. Thus, many dog owners bring them to a shelter saying they found them. Sadly, owner turn-ins are the first to be euthanized. Strays at least have a 5-10 day hold, giving time for an owner to claim then, which also gives time for a rescue to step in and pull the dog. Be that as it may, we were only too happy to take this little family into the safety of our rescue.Affectionately named for the beloved members of the Our Gang comedy, the 3 puppies, Spanky, Stymie, and Waldo are just as cute as can be! They were born in early September and will be ready for adoption when they reach 10-12 weeks of age. Both Spanky & Waldo have bobtails, while Stymie has a full tail like his mom. Spanky is the red-head and the smallest of the boys. With a mom as wonderful as Darla, we know these 3 pups will blossom in the loving care of one of our approved applicants.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 are home most of the day, have an active life-style, a sense of humor, and would like to be part of Spanky'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 Spanky.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 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.comThank you!
