Aida
Photos
Aida is a sweet senior who was left at the shelter. The shelter is no place for any senior to be so we gladly took her into rescue to find her a loving home with lots of TLC. Aida's age is not known but we believe her to be between 10-12 years old. She has some arthritis so is a little slow to get up but she enjoys and does fine with short walks. Aida likes being with her loved ones and will gently nudge you to pet her. She is fine with other dogs but we don't know how she feels about cats. Aida will make someone a very nice companion.

Cobi

Cobi is an approximately 9 year old, male Golden/Lab mix. Cobi came to rescue when he ended up in a shelter. He has a quintessen-tial Golden/Labrador temperament and personality, he is super sweet and gentle. He has learned to use the doggie door in his foster home. He loves to go on walks, but short ones as he tires. If you are looking for a companion to hang out with and love, Cobi is the boy for you. Cobi gets along with dogs, but we don’t know about cats.

Jimmy '17
Photos
Jimmy is now looking for his forever home.   He is a smaller 2 year old Golden mix, who came to us in very bad condition.   His fur was very sparse, had an infection on one paw, had a large wound on his rear, and had been shot at with a BB Gun - we found BB's when we took x-rays.  He is now healthy and looking for his forever home.  Jimmy came to us terrified and afraid to even go outside.  Now he happily goes for his walks twice a day and ventures out to play on the grass and stroll along the sidewalks.  Jimmy will go to a single dog home with no cats.  He is fine walking with other dogs but does  not like them to come charging up to his face.  Walking beside each other is nice but wild and frisky companions scare him.  We have not tested with cats so he will not go in to a home with them. He's a sweet boy and has just blossomed in to a very nice young man.  He is 2 but those 2 years were hard years and now he needs a quiet, happy, understanding home.   Initially I would say no children in the home but they could come visit.   We have not tested him in a home with children, young or older.    He walks good on his leash, and is good in the car.

Justin '17

Justin is a 9 year old boy who recently came in to rescue through no fault of his own with his brother, Richey.  Justin is housebroken, walks great on the leash, has previously been a house dog, and is just the sweetest boy you would want to meet.   He is good with other dogs, don't know about cats or small children, and is now ready for his forever home.   He is a healthy boy and just needs a loving home now.   Ideally, he would love to stay with his brother, Richey, who he has lived with for his whole life.

Kipling
Photos
Kipling is a wonderful, very sweet boy, who is now thought to be around 7 years old.  He came in to rescue in very poor condition and in great need of our help.  He is doing much better now and is looking for his forever home.  He has been tested with other larger dogs and is very gentle and good with his interactions.  My own personal dog thought he was a great guy.  He walks very well on his leash and enjoys spending time with the volunteers and hanging out laying around in the grass.  He even surprised us recently when we called him and asked him to sit, which he immediately did.  We all just stood with our mouth open and asked him to do it again.  What a delight.  Kipling is a quiet boy, a little hesitant upon initial meetings with men, but very happy to see women.  
 
Kipling loves treats and is a very gentle boy taking them, even highly prized treats.  If you would like a good companion, please check out this boy.

Mickey '17
Photos
Mickey is a gorgeous, friendly, happy, either under a year or just barely a year old boy who recent came in to rescue along with his brother.  He is friendly, happy, and a very photogenic pup.  These adorable photos show his personality.  He is good with other dogs, don't know about cats, and currently will not go to a home with children under 8.  He has not been tested with children or cats and is only around adults currently. Mickey know sit, does pull on the leash and would benefit by positive reinforcement training as would his brother.  We do not currently have house manners nor housebroken information until he has gone to a foster home to assess that information.

Nash
Photos
Nash came into rescue from a local shelter. He is a big boy, weighing about 130 pounds. This is too much weight for Nash but he will still always be large. We think he may be mixed with Golden Retriever and another large breed dog. Due to a low thyroid gland (not uncommon in dogs), Nash has had trouble losing weight. Now that he's on the correct medication (very inexpensive), he should start taking weight off much more easily. The low thyroid has also been responsible for his hair being so thin and not having much hair on his tail. These will go back to normal as he continues on his medication. Nash is a sweet, gentle 5 year old boy. He does not seem to mind other dogs and approaches them with curiosity. He will make someone a very nice companion. He has a lower energy level but that may change as his thyroid becomes more normal and he takes off some weight. We are still learning about him so we will update this information as we learn more.

Olan
Photos
Meet our very sweet and happy boy Olan. Olan is a 9-10 y.o. purebred Golden Retriever with the energy of a 6 y.o. He came in to GRCGLAR from a local shelter and presented with many health issues due to neglect and the fact that he is a senior. They have all been addressed, and he is now on his way to a much healthier and happier life with the right loving family. Olan is a very affectionate boy who loves to cuddle with his humans regardless of his past. He loves to go out for nice walks once or twice daily and is interested in everything! He is a fast learner as he is very food motivated, even though he takes treats with a very gentle mouth.  He will need to go to a home with no children under the age of 7 and no other small pets. He seems to have never really gotten much attention from humans and has begun to learn that people can be the best part of each day for him.  If you are looking for a sweet boy who has energy to enjoy the outdoors for short outings, just be a companion who will be happy joining you on RV trips,  or simply parked on a comfy dog bed next to wherever you happen to be, please submit an adoption application and a home visit volunteer will contact you shortly. *Olan is currently looking for a foster home where he can comfortably wait for his forever family!

Rhett Butler
Photos
Rhett is a beautiful red 18-month old Golden. He loves running and playing with his tennis balls. He also loves playing in a wading pool! He is an absolute love bug. But when handled roughly Rhett has reacted by biting (not causing serious damage) on two separate occasions. And he has some toy protective instincts. He is in training and doing extremely well. The head trainer commented that Rhett is very smart and trainable with treat motivation. Because we want to avoid any regression to aggressive reactions, Rhett needs to be the only dog in the home, with no kids or cats for this boy.  We would like Rhett to go to a dog savvy home, with a large grass yard, and with continued help from a professional trainer.  Rhett would be happiest in a calm environment where people are home more often than not, to reduce typical puppy behavior.

Richey '17
Photos
Richey recently came in to rescue through no fault of his own, along with his brother, Justin.  Richey loves his brother and does become protective of him when another dog is around.  If Richey is by himself, he is good with other dogs.   He's a much more active 9 year old boy, his brother is more laid back.   He is housebroken, has been an inside dog, is good on his leash walks, and is a friendly boy.  Richey knows some obedience but could use a refresher.  He is a happy, healthy boy in need of a home.  We do not know how he is with cats or small children.   Ideally, he would love to stay with his brother, Justin, who he has lived with for his whole life.
