7/25/17 Foster Update: Cassie has arrived in the northeast and is being fostered in a loving home in CT. Her foster mom shared, "Cassie is doing great and is so sweet! She is a little shy with my dogs but loves people. She has a little hitch in her giddy-up in her back leg, but handles it well. She is so loving, it is hopefully going to be easy to place her in her forever home. We have already fallen for her!Cassie's Story: Cassie is a Golden mix whose former owner brought her into the shelter on a rope. He spoke not a word of English and had his nephew as an interpreter. She weighs about 45 lbs but Cassie needs to gain a bit of weight and may top out around 50 lbs. Cassie is about 5 years old and is as sweet as can be. She is super friendly, loves attention, and has a smile that lights up a room. She jumps up a bit, but is easily corrected. Cassie is good with other dogs and even cats!In her past life, Cassie had a broken pelvis, which we do not want to think about how it might have happened. She did not receive proper vet care for her injury so it healed on its own. This does not seem to give her any trouble other than a slight limp from time to time. Cassie also came to us with a growth nose which we had biopsied and it turned out to be a simple in-grown hair. PHEW!Cassie has been brought up-to-date on all her vaccinations, is spayed, heartworm negative, and micro-chipped. Cassie has a reservation to come north on 7/22 and is available for direct adoption.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.

I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!Ernie is one of the nicest dogs we have ever had! He was a stray who went unclaimed and came to our rescue from a high kill shelter in Louisiana. It is baffling that no one claimed this incredible boy! Estimated to be about 3 years old, Ernie weighs in at about 60 lbs, but is in need of putting on some weight.Ernie is a delightful fellow and is just as awesome as can be. He is good with dogs, cats, and children. He will need some training, but is just the biggest sweetheart and a love muffin. He keeps his kennel clean, a good sign of being house-broken. Ernie has been brought up-to-date on his vaccinations, neutered, and is now micro-chipped. He is presently under treatment for heartworm because his former owner did not keep him on heartworm preventive. He will be coming up to his new awaiting family in the northeast in mid-August. Ernie hopes you will consider one of our other wonderful dogs, who are available for adoption!If not yet approved for adoption, 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.

  • Golden Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
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 ASK ABOUT button to contact us, about this dog, as that will delay our ability to respond to your inquiry.

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!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.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 Lady'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 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 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!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!

Courtesy PostingMy name is Lucky and I am a 5 1/2 year old Golden mix (likely Irish Setter). I am quite handsome and I do have one heck of a personality! There are two things you need to know about me. 1. I love to swim! I live for it. But, apparently swimming across the lake is frowned upon because my foster mom had to jump in the water after me! But I also love a good baby pool! 2. I love Kongs. I call them my wubbies.I am good with other dogs and older kids (I may knock over the little ones!). I think cats are WAY too much fun to chase, so the kitties would be much happier without me! I am house trained, lovable, and can't wait to find my forever home.Love, LuckyLucky is available through our friends at Adopt a Golden Knoxville, and he is being fostered in New England. If you are interested in Lucky, please apply at www.adoptagoldenknoxville.org or address any questions to agksueclarke@gmail.comThank you!Lucky is a Courtesy Posting and no an SGRR dog.

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 a Duck Toller/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! Lisa, our main rescuer in AL, shared that Marsha loves the agility apparatus in the vet's office's play yard! She is a speedy runner too, and would probably make a great agility candidate. Take a look at Marsha's video!Marsha is now in a loving foster home in NYC. Her foster mom shares, "Marsha is so sweet and friendly. Marsha is happy-go-lucky dog who looks to meet everyone (adults, children and dogs) she encounters. She sat nicely when two toddlers wanted to pet her. She is eager to make new friends and is friendly to all the dogs we have met on our walks. We play ball in the house and she plays nicely. She seems to be house broken and has had no accidents. Marsha knows sit and stay so far. She loves to cuddle and rolls over for belly rubs. She is a cute little dog who will be a great companion. She will make a wonderful pet for someone!"Marsha has been brought up-to-date on all her vaccinations, is spayed, heartworm negative, and micro-chipped. She is now in a foster home in Manhattan and would love to meet you!Rescued dogs come with a range of needs - from behavioral to emotional to medical.

7/18/17 Update: Sweet Mary Jane (MJ) is still waiting for her forever home, and we are amazed! She is a great dog who is smart and loves to learn, and training with her forever family to help her gain confidence would make her so happy! MJ would be a wonderful candidate for agility training or as your running partner, and she also loves to play fetch. Then she settles down nicely. MJ can be left alone for hours and sleeps or plays with her toys in her crate with the door open. Mary Jane is a beautiful dog with a happy spirit. She is in CT waiting for her home.7/10/17 Foster Update: Mary Jane loves all humans, most dogs, and is a ball fanatic. This sweet and lively Lab may be younger than first thought, as her energy level is more that of a 3-year old dog than a senior. Yet, she is not destructive, never chews anything inappropriate, and is trustworthy when left alone. Best of both worlds!! Mary Jane is curious and loves to be included in her humans’ activities, and she will play fetch for as long as you are willing. Mary Jane has become such a good girl! She is very smart and likes to practice the new commands she has learned from her Foster parents.Mary Jane has shown that she will love an active home. A fenced yard to run and/or a dog park, hikes or swimming, and possibly older children to play with would make this sweet, active Lab a very happy girl. She gets along fine meeting dogs at the dog park. She needs a slow introduction to some dogs, but has done great going away for weekends and spending time with family dogs. If she meets a dog she feels unsure about, she just needs a little extra time and is easily redirected. Mary Jane loves to hang out on the deck or in the grass and plays nicely by herself with her toys, inside or outside. Car rides are a joy to her. If you are looking for a lively and adoring companion to share an active lifestyle, please consider Mary Jane. We feel Mary Jane had a very sad past where no one taught her life could be good, and fun, and she wants to experience all of it!Be sure to check out Mary Jane in her 2 videos. You can see what a happy dog Mary Jane is. In the first video you can see her happily kissing her Golden Foster sister. The other video shows Mary Jane’s second trip to the dog park, comfortable and happily carrying around tennis ball and can bee seen at: https://youtu.be/A1gutI2r1boMary Jane's Story: Mary Jane 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! With courage and spirit, Mary Jane began her recovery with an AL vet. Her wounds healed 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. 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 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. At 65 lbs. she is still a little on the thin side. 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 ASK ABOUT button to contact us, about this dog, as that will delay our ability to respond to your inquiry.

I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!Mollie is a sweet and loving purebred Golden Retriever who has lived with her former family since she was a puppy. She has been the apple of her daddy’s eye and a beloved companion to him. A recent change in events that yielded a move to a smaller home and property, has made her dad realize that Mollie now needs more than they can offer her. Tearfully, he has relinquished his companion of 5 years to our rescue. Mollie has grown up with young children and loves kids. She has also lived her life with a Standard Poodle and is good with other dogs, but cats are unknown. She knows the commands, Sit, Speak, Lay Down, and Twist. She is an active girl who would make a great walking or running buddy. She is trustworthy in the home and is house-broken. Mollie is pretty good on the leash and loves riding in the car. Her other hobbies are belly rubs and playing fetch. Her dad told us that Mollie is very sweet and loving and that she loves being petted. She also likes to jump up and give you a hug. This is one awesome dog! Mollie has been brought up-to-date on all her vaccinations, is spayed, heartworm negative, and micro-chipped. She has a reservation to come north on 7/29 to be adopted directly.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 Mollie'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 Mollie.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.

I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!Beautiful and sweet Molly has been loved and well-cared for all of her life. She was purchased as a puppy from a reputable breeder and has been the apple of her mommy & daddy's eyes. Molly even went to training with her mom to become a therapy dog. However, a few years ago, the family welcomed a human baby to their family and their focus shifted from Molly to the new baby. With a sudden military transfer occurring, the family had tearfully asked our rescue to find a new home for their beloved friend. Molly has been living with a lovely family in CT for the past few months. Over that time, they have found that she would do best as an only dog. While she enjoys playing with dogs outside, she is not overly thrilled about sharing her inside space with the resident dog. Her family tells us that Molly is not only stunningly beautiful, she is very smart and eager to please and learn, having recently completed 12 weeks of obedience training. She loves people and being petted and will place her paw gently on your leg to encourage even more petting! She also loves to lay her head in your lap and her smile just radiates love. They know that some family will be extremely lucky to adopt Molly!Molly is 6 years young and weighs around 70 lbs. Her fur is a stunning creamy-color and she has a smile that makes most everyone who looks at her smile too. Molly is a mellow girl who is very loving. She gets excited when she sees new people, but calms down after the greeting and knows the commands, "look," "sit," "stay," "down," and "heal." She is fantastic with kids, even very young ones, and loves to play and retrieve. She even wants to play with cats, but because of her size most seem intimidated by that. Go figure...! Molly is trustworthy in the house, has had no accidents, is good on a leash, and likes to ride in the car. She enjoys the outdoors and loves just laying in the sun, chasing the squirrels, or watching whatever is going on outside.Molly is up-to-date on all her vaccinations and is heartworm negative. After she was spayed, some slight bladder leakage was noted so Molly takes Proin, twice a day, to eliminate the leakage. When she first came into rescue and our vet examined Molly, a small lump was found and removed/biopsied. The biopsy indicated a grade II mast cell tumor, considered low grade, with clear margins. The vet feels Molly will be a long term cancer survivor! We all seem to know a cancer survivor who is so filled with life and hope for the future. Well, add Molly to the list of the courageous who are winning their battles!If you are approved to adopt through SGRR and would like a wonderfully, sweet companion, please contact Donna at SunshineGoldens@gmail.com to be considered to adopt Molly.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.

  • Labrador Retriever, Pointer

  • Spayed/Neutered
Introducing Nellie, a gentle and friendly senior girl with a sweet senior sugar face who found herself in the Central Baldwin County Shelter in AL. Nellie is a Lab mix estimated to be 7-8 years old. We suspect she may have some pointer in her family. She has subtle freckling on her legs, and she proudly prances around her foster’s yard in a nice rhythm, her tail straight out like a pointer. Nellie is oblivious to the fact that her tail currently has very little fur from a flea allergy, and her tail’s appearance does not concern her in the least.Nellie is very friendly and affectionate, and we believe she once had her own family. She looks at the back door when she needs to go out for potty, then comes back in and sits looking at her foster, as if to say, “I was a good girl, where is my treat?” She is getting along well with the resident dog after some initial guarding of her dinner, but by the second day in her foster home this had stopped and the two are now hanging out together. Nellie enjoys sleeping on a dog bed, rides well in the car, and loves every kindness and bit of attention she receives.Nellie is painfully thin, weighing 38 lbs. when she should be about 50 lbs. Her teeth are worn down and her coat is in poor condition. But with a medicated bath, good food, and her foster’s pampering she is looking and feeling better each day. She may be a little hard of hearing, or she may have selective hearing. We’re not yet sure. Nellie is receiving heartworm treatment and has already been vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed. She will be ready to head to her forever home in mid September. Nellie will be a sweet, gentle companion to the lucky human who wants to include her in daily activities, errands, and walks.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.

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.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.

I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!7/12/17 Update: Reggie has been cleared for placement by his vet and is ready to find his forever home! We are happy to report that Dr. L advised us this week that she feels Reggie is ready to move forward in his life! Ideally, we are seeking an adopter who is within a reasonable drive to Norwalk, CT so Reggie’s care can continue under Dr. L’s guidance. It is a requirement of his adoption terms that Reggie be seen by the vet to check his ear every 2-3 weeks, to keep any complications at bay. As time goes on, these preventative visits may be extended to a longer period of time in between visits. Reggie’s adopter will always need to be mindful of checking for signs of infection.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 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! 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.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.
