Annie

Annie is a 1-1/2 year old little Golden retriever mix who came in to rescue with her 2, 6 month old pups - Aurora and Arnie.  Annie loves to play with the pups and is initially shy with people but warms up and enjoys attention.  She is slowly learning what the real world is like and while initially shy with new people, is slowly seeking more attention.  She loves to play and roll around on the grass.  Our volunteers are working with her leash manners, and slowly introducing her to the world outside.  Unless she goes to a home with one of her pups (Arnie and Aurora), she would do best in a home without any other animals.

Arnie came in to rescue with his mother, Annie, and sister, Aurora.  He is a 6-month-old mix breed who is very sweet and loving. He is enjoying his walks and has done great with the other dogs he has met. He has fallen in love with the foster home's older female and sticks to her like glue.  He is learning his house manners and becoming more adventurous and curious.  He would love to be in a home with another older, calm, friendly female dog, but that is not a priority. He is ready to find his forever home.

Aurora is a 6-month-old pup that came in to rescue with her mother and brother.  She is very sweet and beautiful with soft white hair.  She came in to rescue extremely scared but after a little TLC from the staff and our volunteers, she is really starting to blossom. It will take a little time and a lot of love to make her feel safe but she is doing so much better.  She loves everyone she meets, and she seems to really get along with other dogs and cats. She needs an adult home that is quiet with another dog (or her mom) to hang out with.  She is becoming more and more confident as the days go by and is ready to find her forever home where she can be showered with love.

Cowboy

Howdy pardner,  I’m Cowboy!  I’m a very handsome 4 y.o. boy who landed myself in the shelter a short while back. Then one day a really nice lady came and helped me to escape from that noisy place and I am now in the care of GRCGLA Rescue.  They promised to help me to find my new forever home once I am finished at the vet and released for adoption.  I just got into rescue a few days ago and I need to spend some time with our volunteers so they can get to better know me.  For now they say I’m extremely affectionate, a leaner, I ride quietly in the car, I have a very soft mouth for treats, I am interested in other dogs and horses but as of yet I have not barked or showed any aggression to them or to anyone in rescue. I’m a little too thin, so I’m working to add a few pounds. I am a really good lookin’ blonde boy who would love to find a home where I can spend my time with my people most of the time because I am still a young fella. Please stay tuned for more updates on my journey, and if you think you might be able to offer me the kind of home a young boy like me needs to thrive, please fill out an adoption application and a home visit volunteer will contact you shortly.

Kipling

Kipling is a great and very handsome 7-yr old.   He came in to rescue in terrible condition but after time with us, he has gained weight, his coat is GORGEOUS, and he is still looking for his forever home.   We have discovered his real name, Oso, and he responds to that with obedience commands like sit, down, shake, come, heel.   He had been a much loved dog at one time.  He enjoys spending time with our volunteers, going for nice easy walks - he now has a bounce in his walk and loves the time on the walk "checking out all the bushes".    He is housebroken, loves to sleep on his dog bed, is great taking his treats with a gentle mouth,  and is still looking for his forever home.   The perfect home would be one with a single owner and no other dogs - he is fine with dogs on his walks but prefers to not have to share attention with another dog in the home.  He does not like other dogs running up in to his face on walks but once he has met them, he very quietly goes off walking with them.   He enjoyed meeting my own dog and she thought he was a very handsome boy.  He would do great all day while his owner is working and really prefers to sleep on his dog bed and wait for someone to come home.   A couple pats on the head and he is totally happy with that.   Then the owner could make dinner, watch TV and if Oso wants to, he can come watch TV with her/him.  He's not a huggy, grabby dog, just a great companion and a pat on the head makes him very happy.

Laura Ann
Photos
Laura Ann is a beautiful, sweet and gentle girl who was surrendered to us by her owner.  Although, well loved, her care came to be too much financial responsibility.  As we all know, basic food, grooming and preventive care for dogs is not inexpensive.  

Laura Ann is a a sweet, snuggly shadow dog. Her big, fluffy paws will come thumping towards the door the second she hears you and will greet you with an enthusiastic tail wag and a plushy toy in her mouth. She is a true lady and exhibits excellent manners both in the house and riding in a car and she can entertain herself and behave calmly when left alone.  She's also a sucker for a chest rub and quickly lays down to submit herself and her shiny golden coat and doe eyes to pets. This dog shows nothing but unconditional love to humans. She, sadly, can't say the same for all canine friends given some baggage from her past. Other dogs stress her out and she exhibits some fearful behavior while looking for constant reassurance from her person.  She would be best as the only doggie in your life and will need training to help soothe her anxiety about other dogs on walks. Her previous owner told us that she may be scared of cats of first but then reacts kindly towards them, especially towards kittens.  We also have been told that she is sensitive to fireworks and thunder.  She is a total sweetheart and is looking for a family that will give her the stability she deserves.  She is about 4 years old and is 70 pounds of pure doggie love.  ​

Lucia - ADOPTION PENDING
Photos
Meet Lucia…a very sweet little purebred Golden girl who recently came to us from a shelter.  Lucia is estimated to be about 5 years of age, weighs 63 lbs, is very sweet and affectionate with people, loves to go for walks and she has great leash manners. She’s had some training with obedience and enjoys showing her smarts! When she first came in to rescue she showed signs of neglect and we have been working on getting her healthier so she will be more comfortable. She’s now very close to being ready to ‘go home!’ In the next few days we will address some dental issues and an old untreated ‘cherry eye’ issue.  Lucia is not obese, but can afford to lose a few pounds.  Fortunately, she loves to get out to exercise and roll in the grass. Lucia gets a little excited around strange dogs at first, but we’ve now introduced her to a few calmer ones and it appears she is simply wanting to play... and play like a young pup! She visits the resident kitties in the vet hospital and doesn’t seem to mind them at all. Once Lucia is done with her makeover, she will have a bubble bath and enjoy some long needed grooming. She will be looking for a foster or forever family, so if you feel Lucia could be a good fit for your living situation and you are looking for an affectionate Golden girl, please fill out an  Adoption Application.

Lucilla
Photos
Meet Lucilla, a beautiful 8-year old blonde golden. Lucilla (or Lucy as we like to call her) is professionally obedience trained and understands basic commands. She is good with other dogs and has lived with different cats. Her favorite things include going to the beach and playing ball in the yard. She LOVES playing fetch with our volunteers. She enjoys playtime with them so much that they often get tired out before she does! She is housebroken, good on a leash and in the car.

Lucilla’s perfect home would be an adult home with no kids (or kids who visit often) with a yard to play in.  She is very sweet but can scare easily so she needs to find a home with someone who is home more than not during the day. She needs an owner who is patient and loving and is willing to work with her should any anxiety issues arise. Even though she loves to play ball in the yard, she shouldn’t be left outside alone for long periods of time. She is definitely a housedog. If you’re willing to make the commitment to nurture this sweet girl, she could be the perfect dog for you

Patch
Photos
Patch was surrendered by his owner to the shelter where we picked him up.  His owner claimed that he could no longer care for him.  He just turned 7 as his birthday was in March.  Patch is a friendly boy and still a bit reserved for now.  You can tell that he is still very confused and bewildered about his whereabouts and recent events.  He passed his vet exam with flying colors.  He has been a little subdued, quiet, but a nice mannered fellow.  He walks very nicely on the leash with no pulling and actually fell asleep in the car on his way from the shelter.  We have introduced him to dogs and seen other dogs out walking with no real reaction or desire to even interact.  His owner claimed that he is friendly with other dogs but will chase cats.  It is still very early on in learning about this fellow but at this point, he is a ‘very gentle soul.”  Updates will be forthcoming as we learn more about this quiet guy. Patch weighs 62 lbs.

Randy

Randy is a 6-year-old yellow Lab that came into rescue with Sunny. He is very affectionate and loving and loves everyone he meets (both dogs and humans). He does great on his walks and has good leash manners.  He is good in the car. He is doing very well in his foster home where they are giving him lots of love, teaching him table manners, and encouraging him to eat dog food. He seems to only eat people food so he’ll need continued training in that area.  Randy is a very good boy and would make the perfect companion for any family.

Scrappy
Photos
Scrappy is an 8 year old boy who was surrendered by his owner to a shelter. We are calling him a Golden Retriever mix, but he looks very similar to a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. Unfortunately, he won't tell us his parentage. When he came to Rescue his teeth and gums were in bad shape, but now are clean and shiny. He had no other health issues. His owner had told the shelter that he was an outside dog and didn't like little dogs and cats and barked at everything. We've walked him past little barking dogs and he showed no interest. He does pull towards cats. And the only barking we've observed is at Fed Ex and mail trucks.

Scrappy has perfect/exceptional house manners.  He loves his foster family and will cuddle as long as you like.  His foster mom has discovered a fun trick where he will sit on his hind end with front paws up like giving a “high five”. He does love to go outside where he is on the mission to rid the yard of squirrels and birds (very Duck Toller of him).  He has also demonstrated some pointing while outside.  Scrappy likes to run the fence in a playful manner with both neighbors who have small dogs.  No barking though.  He has been very quiet but also very smart.  When he wants to go running with his foster mom, he brings her sneaker to her and drops it in front of her.  He has great stamina and has run 1-1/2 to 2 miles with his foster mom.  Also, perfect running along side her, no zigzag or in front.  Like most Retrievers he would prefer an adopter who is home most of the time. Scrappy will best fit in a home without a small dog or cats and with humans that will love giving snuggles while getting them back in return.

Shawn

Shawn is a sweet-natured 6-year-old boy who is ready for his forever home.  He is good with other dogs and people.  We don’t know about cats. Our volunteers all fell in love after spending time with him. He is good in the car and appears to have good house manners. His back legs are very weak from many years of confinement, but the staff and volunteers have been working with him to help build up his strength. Currently he can take short walks and needs a home with someone who is willing to be patient and work with him until he can regain his strength.

Stanley Sweetness
Photos
What a story this boy has so far!   Animal control found this boy in a tent set up by a homeless person.  He was caught munching on some marijuana plants so the shelter administered medications to counter the toxicitity of the cannabis.  Stanley did very well with the treatment and had no side effects or damage from the drugs.  

Living on the streets did not allow for this boy to get any medical care as he was not neutered, overweight, had ear infections, some dental tarter, hair loss and fleas, and tested positive for hypothyroidism.  Now neutered and getting medication for his ear infections and hypothyroidism, along with a few baths, Stanley is feeling and looking better.  He does have some arthritis but we have also started him on some anti-inflammatories to help with the stiffness.  Once the medication kicks in and becomes therapeutic, Stanley will be able to loose some weight which will help with his arthritic issues.  

We have discovered that he likes to play and fetch the ball and will bring it back and drop at your feet.  His house manners have been great and he likes to go for walks..  He seems to love the indoors and he does some communicating through snorts, quite hilarious.  He is getting along fine with his foster brother and he does not react much to cats.  He loves to ride in the car and will sit and just look out the back window the entire time.  Of course, his favorite thing to do is eat, (typical!).  But, he will need a home that will be diligent in his weight loss journey so that his joints don’t suffer.

Vanna - ADOPTION PENDING!
Photos
Vanna is a 7 year old Golden Retriever mix who was rescued from an area shelter when her owner did not come to get her.  Her temperament is all golden as she is a sweetheart full of love and kisses.  Her favorite activity is walking and getting treats.  Unfortunately, she has partaken a bit too much of the food and treats so we are working very hard to help her loose some weight.  She has been very excited when we first start off on a walk but settles down and proves to be a nicely mannered pup.  She rides nicely in the car and is very comfortable with every one she meets.  She greets everyone like they are the best person on the planet.  We have not been able to introduce her to cats so a home without any would be best.  She seems excited to meet other dogs and has walked nicely with a canine buddy.
