I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!Six-year-old Basil and his friend, Sage, were left tied to a tree in Mobile County, AL. It is puzzling to fathom the mentality that lead to abandoning a dog in such a manner. However, we will look at that day as being Basil's lucky day as he will never have to worry about being left behind again.Handsome Basil has gorgeous amber eyes and liver-colored mouth and nose - such a beautiful face! He has a lively personality and makes everyone who meets him smile! He has a funny trait of not liking to get his paws wet when he goes outside to potty after it has rained! He keeps his kennel clean, a good sign that Basil is house-broken. This Labby boy is good with dogs, but cats are unknown. He would probably enjoy some kids to play with, but would do well as a companion for just about anyone. He is good on the leash and loves taking walks.While Basil was at the vet's office and under sedation for his neutering, an emergency occurred and Basil became a blood donor. Unbeknownst to him, Basil saved another dog's life! How is that for good karma!! Basil has been brought up-to-date on vaccinations, and micro-chipped. He is heartworm negative, weighs about 65 lbs, and will be ready to come north on 7/15/17 to be directly adopted.If you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact Donna at SunshineGoldens@gmail.com to be considered to adopt sweet Basil.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 PostingThis is Southern Gentleman Clem, short for Clementine. He is a handsome Golden Mix about 8 years old who has been living in the Northeast with his adoptive family for the past 3 years. His owner tells us Clem is a wonderful dog and has been great these past few years, but unfortunately his owner must re-locate for his job and cannot take his little buddy, Clem, with him. Clem loves his two legged family members but would prefer to be the only furbaby in his new home. He is an easy going boy - loves to lounge in the yard and go for long walks. You can see how sweet he is in his video!Clem is a Courtesy Posting and not a SGRR dog.

Two-year-old Gabriella is a beautiful, red, purebred Golden Retriever who had a rough beginning to her life. She came to us from a suspected abusive home, where her former owners were threatening to euthanize her due to behavioral matters. Rather than addressing the unwanted behaviors and working with a trainer, the former owners opted to heavily sedate her. 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 has been with a skilled training group in CT where they have worked on behavioral correction. She has been 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 have seen a new Gabriella emerge!About a month ago, Gabriella and a set of "golden rules" went home with approved applicants, but this match was not found to be compatible and Gabby is back with our rescue. Upon speaking with her lead trainer today, he remarked about what an absolutely wonderful and smart dog she is. As we spoke, she sat with her head resting on his thigh, soaking up his pets of affection. He shared that if he did not already have a pack of ten dogs, he would adopt her in a heartbeat and that he is in no rush to see her off until we find the exact right home for Gabriella. He shared that his training staff call Gabriella his "24" because he gabs about her 24/7 and even takes her riding with him in his convertible.If you are an experienced dog person 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 PLRescue. 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 24/7 friend!If you are already approved to adopt through SGRR and have a physically fenced yard, 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!

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.

Animal hoarding almost always comes from a true love and concern for the animals. Hoarders typically have every intention of caring for or adopting out the animals they take in. Yet the nature of their disease makes it difficult for them to let go or provide the necessary attention the pets need. And thus was the situation that sweet Joe Perry came from, where numerous animals were found in less than ideal circumstances in an Alabama trailer park.Joe Joe was found hiding under one of the trailers in the park. He is just as sweet as sugar, with tender brown eyes that melt your heart. Joe Joe is estimated to be about 1.5-2 years old and we believe he is a Golden/Lab mix. This sweet boy was born with an abnormality to his right rear leg. He has been seen by an orthopedic veterinarian who does not feel surgery is warranted. Instead, a corrective cast had been put on Joe Perry's leg to help correct the defect. Since having this corrective cast, he has been putting more weight on his leg and there has been a huge improvement from the time when he first arrived at our rescue. A new cast was put on his leg for a few weeks to help with the strengthening, and has been removed, prior to JP's arrival in the northeast. While Joe Perry may never run the Boston Marathon, we are hopeful that he will enjoy some casual walks with his adopter.Joe Joe had been staying in a loving foster home in AL prior to coming to the northeast. His foster mom gushes when she talks about him. "I can tell you that he is absolutely one of the SWEETEST dogs ever, especially considering the situation he came from! He has bonded easily with me, but totally loves my 20 year old daughter and gets so excited when she comes to visit. He tolerates my 16 month old granddaughter pretty well; he will just look or move away from her if she bothers him. He is easily startled, but will simply leave the room to get somewhere quiet. He does NOT like to be isolated though. I tried to keep him in my laundry room but he would not have it and then my bedroom with no better luck. But as long as he has free roam of the house he is good. He is great with his potty habits and has no accidents in the house. He plays with toys a bit, more and more as time passes. He doesn't mind my cat, although my cat doesn't run from dogs, so he would do fine with a dog-savvy cat. I have 5 dogs of my own and he does well with them too. He is such a sweetheart. It's going to be hard to let him go. He is going make a great companion for someone very special!"Joe Perry enjoys riding in the car and gets a B+ on his leash walking. He weighs in at about 65 lbs, has been neutered, brought up-to-date on vaccinations, and micro-chipped. He is under treatment for heartworm and is now being fostered in CT. Joe Joe has the courage of a true survivor. He will not let his handicap keep him from being the spirited dog he is deep inside. He is truly a wonderful dog and is filled with love and affection that just radiates from his very being. We know that JP's adopter is out there and that that person is just as special as Joe Joe is! If your home can offer this boy a little extra TLC, apply today and let Joe Joe’s spirit fill your world!If you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact Donna at SunshineGoldens@gmail.com to be considered to adopt this sweet fella with the soulful eyes.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!Through no fault of her own, this three-year-old black beauty found herself in a scary place - a high kill shelter in St Landry's Parish, in Louisiana, along with her three 5-month-old puppies (taken in by another rescue). Being black in coloring, the color least adopted, Lady's life was in danger. We will never know where this gentle girl spent the first years of her life, but it is apparent that she was once someone’s pet and we can't help but wonder… When Lady was lost, where was her family and why was there no one frantically searching for their beloved pal? She is the most loving girl you will ever meet, and the most wonderful thing about Lady is her heart and spirit.Lady has had her spa day and is feeling oh-so-pretty! She charms everyone she meets! Lady will sit for a treat, she shakes hands, and rolls over for a belly rub. She has a great temperament and has never met a stranger. Lady will greet you with a look that seems to say "Hi, I’m Lady – SO nice to meet you!" This is a young girl, with an energy level appropriate for a dog her age. She will need an adopter who can provide her with adequate exercise, activities, and companionship. In return, Lady will give you her unconditional love, 24/7, 365!Lady is good with other dogs, would enjoy playing with older children, but has no known history with cats. She has been brought up-to-date on vaccinations, is micro-chipped, spayed, and is now undergoing heartworm treatment. If you have it in your heart to give a gorgeous girl a loving and forever home, please consider Lady. She will be ready to travel north in mid-June to be adopted.If you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact Donna at SunshineGoldens@gmail.com to be considered to adopt lovely Lady.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!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!

Can you say "cuuuuuuuute!?!" Oh, we knew you could! Meet Marsha, 30 pounds of absolute cuteness overload! This little lady was picked up as a stray in Marshall County, AL. She had been seen running around with another dog, with a good Samaritan feeding the pair until animal control was able to corral the two dogs. Marsha is estimated to be about 1.5 years old and truly is as cute as they come. We think she is probably an Australian Shepherd mix due to her size, coloring, and bobtail. Marsha is lively, affectionate, and filled with happiness. Her adorable bobtail never stops wagging, creating the cutest wiggle butt you could imagine!Marsha is good with other dogs but has no known history with cats. She has been brought up-to-date on all her vaccinations, is spayed, heartworm negative, and micro-chipped. Marsha will be ready to come north on 7/15/17 to be directly adopted. Like most rescued dogs, Marsha has an unknown past and her personality will continue to evolve as she becomes comfortable in her forever home. If you understand “rescue” and would like to be part of Marsha’s rescue story and have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact Donna at SunshineGoldens@gmail.com to be considered to adopt Marsha.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
6/6/17 Foster Update: Mary Jane is in a foster home in CT and is called “MJ” by her foster family. Her Foster Mom told us, "MJ is slowly coming to life as she settles in and loves to play with all the toys, especially a little tug of war. She is great outside and loves to walk around the yard with the other dogs. She is wonderful on a leash and enjoys a nice slow to medium pace walk with some stops for sniffs. She is starting to come around to my other two dogs and has been giving my Golden Retriever lots of kisses. She eats morning and night with a good appetite and is eager to learn more commands with some training treats. She finds her crate a safe spot for herself and goes in there with the door open whenever she needs to rest and have space for herself. She loves affection and always loves to be by your side. She is a perfect balance of an active playful dog, and a dog that could be your couch potato too!” Someone is going to be very lucky to adopt this pretty, bright-eyed girl who is so trusting and loving.Mary Jane's Story: 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. One vet suspected an animal had injured her, and another wondered about knife wounds! But Mary Jane was not about to let her circumstances get her down. With courage and spirit, she began her recovery with an AL vet. She is recovering nicely and we have found her to be a lovely, affectionate dog who will become a loving companion.Mary Jane is a 7 year old female Labrador Retriever who is beautiful and almost always has a smile on her face. At 65 lbs. she is a little on the thin side. 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 Nylabones, 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. She went on a car ride, jumping right in and riding like a princess, settling down and eventually falling asleep, relaxed in the back.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. Being food motivated, we believe she will enjoy obedience training. She is a smart dog who wants to learn and 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, has completed heartworm treatment, and is micro-chipped. Don’t miss out on this pretty girl with the cream coat and joyous personality! She is being fostered in CT and would love 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 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 Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!Red is a stunningly beautiful boy who has lived most of his life in a 5 foot by 10 foot pen. When his former owner went to an assisted living facility a local rescue stepped in to help with Red and then contacted our rescue for his placement.Red has the kind of face that you could just picture on a box of dog biscuits! But he is more than just a handsome face; he is a wonderful Golden boy who longs to be the center of someone’s world, with a typical “love me” Golden attitude. Red is estimated to be about 5 years old and is super sweet, but has had little training in his former life. Red will need some gentle guidance to help him grow into the awesome companion he is meant to be! Red is a young dog with a moderately high energy level. His adopter should be someone who is active and able to provide him with the activity and training that he needs. Red has been tested with other dogs at the vet's office where he is staying and we feel he would do best as an only pet.If the companion you are hoping to add to your life is one that is affectionate, deeply trusting, happy, and beyond beautiful, then look no further - you've found him!!! Handsome Red wants to find a family to share his life with and who will be the center his world. He wants to find someone that loves him deeply for who he is. Perhaps that will be YOU!Red weighs in at around 65 lbs, has been neutered, brought up-to-date on vaccinations, and micro-chipped. He is under treatment for heartworm and will be coming north in mid-to-late July. We hope to have an adopting family ready to welcome Red with open arms!If you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact Donna at SunshineGoldens@gmail.com to be considered to adopt Red.

5/22/17 Update from Reggie's Vet: I Just wanted to give you an update on Reggie. He is doing well; taking the meds well at home and here when he boards with us in pill pocket "sandwiches." Today when I checked him there is no discharge (pus) in the ear and the ear canal is no longer red inside, for the most part. I also didn't see any bacteria on the slide from the ear. The flap above, which had a yeast infection when I first saw him, is staying clean without any treatment from me now. I think the growth there is shrinking now that the area is no longer infected.The ear canal is nice and open the outer half (about 1 cm in), but deeper in there is still swelling. It's basically still swollen shut, which will trap the infection and either make it likely to come back or not allow the existing infection to completely resolve. The steroid in the ear suppository and the oral steroid he is getting is helping to open that up. It looks better each time I look at it and we are just shy of 4 weeks into the treatment. I am pleased with the progress so far!Reggie's Story: 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!Stunning Sage and her buddy, Basil, were left tied to a tree in Mobile County, AL. Perhaps their former owner thought they were doing a good thing and keeping the dogs safe from running into traffic by tethering them this way. Still, it is difficult for us to understand the mindset that lead to such abandonment.Sage is a happy go lucky girl that loves life! She is easily pleased and is a very social girl. She thrives on walks and is good on the leash. She likes other dogs that will play with her or she would do fine as the only dog as well. We believe she is house trained because she keeps her kennel nice and clean! Sage has turned out to be a total love bug. She is being treated for a skin condition and it won't be long until she has a beautiful coat again. She will make a family or individual the most wonderful dog! She loves to be the center of attention and is extremely smart, learning very quickly. She is everybody's darling at the vet's office!Sage is estimated to be about 4 years old and weighs in at about 60 lbs. This Labby lady has been spayed, brought up-to-date on vaccinations, and micro-chipped. She is heartworm negative and will be ready to come north on 7/15/17 to be directly adopted. We promised this baby she would never be a stray ever again.

  • Golden Retriever, Newfoundland Dog
I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!Sweet Sheba was picked up as a stray in Marshall County, AL. Sadly no one came to claim this wonderful girl so she found her way to our rescue. Estimated to be about 3 years old, this Golden/Newfie mix charms everyone she meets and has become a favorite of the staff at the vet's office where she is being kenneled. She loves being the center of attention and is incredibly affectionate. She spent some time in a foster home and we found she had very nice house manners and enjoyed sharing the fosters' bed. She does okay on a leash, but probably did not have much exposure to leash walking in her former life. Sheba is described as having a magnificent gait when she runs and could make an excellent jogging partner. This is just a super nice girl with a healthy energy level for a dog her age, but with a calm and even temperament.This pretty lady loves being brushed and will sit for as long as you would like to brush her. Sheba is on the thin side, weighing about 70 pounds and would do well at about 80-85 pounds. Sheba gets along well with other dogs, but cats are unknown. She has been brought up-to-date on all her vaccinations, is spayed, heartworm negative, and micro-chipped. Sheba will be ready to come north on 7/15/17 to be directly adopted. Do not wait to inquire - this lady is not going to last!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 you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact Donna at SunshineGoldens@gmail.com to be considered to adopt sweet Sheba.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
6/22/17 Foster Update: Tes is spending time in a foster home as she recovers from her leg injury. Her foster dad tells us that she is very affectionate and loves being close to her people. She has selected the couch or bedroom floor as her favorite sleeping places, and has nice house manners with no potty accidents. We suspect she did not have much training in her former life, as she isn’t quite sure what to do with toys, and she is not familiar with leash walking. She pulls on a leash and requires training to learn to walk politely in the desired direction. Foster Dad will be trying a harness to help her learn. He sums up by saying, “She is definitely mostly sweet with no bad habits!”Tesla's Story: Tesla is a strikingly pretty 7-year old Golden Mix who was found as a stray in Livingston, LA, and brought to a local shelter. She appeared to have been hit by a car, with a cut over her eye and limping on her rear right leg. When she was brought to our vet for examination, she was x-rayed and we were relieved to learn that Tesla’s leg is badly bruised but there is no break.Tesla has a lovely personality. She is easy to know and she is a social, sweet dog. She does not appear to have been abused and is not timid. Even though she had just arrived at our vet clinic, she was happy to meet other dogs and was play bowing with them, even with her bad leg! She would probably chase a cat to play, but might get used to one in her home with some discipline. At 50 lbs. Tesla is on the thin side. Her coat is very thick and lush so she does not appear thin, but she could stand to gain about 5 lbs.More good news for pretty Tesla is that she is spayed, and heartworm negative; thus, we believe she must have been a family pet. She has been treated for fleas, brought up to date on her vaccinations, and micro-chipped. Tesla will be ready to travel north to her home on July 15. Like most rescue dogs, Tes has an unknown past and her personality will continue to evolve as she becomes comfortable in her forever home.If you understand “rescue” and would like to be part of Tesla’s rescue story and have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact the Adoption Committee at CandyVS2@aol.com to be considered to adopt Tes.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!

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!

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.
