Isabella (Izzy) is a gorgeous, healthy 4 - 5  year old part Golden who wears her fur proudly. Her huge brown eyes will melt your heart as she cuddles-and cuddles she does. Izzy was surrendered by a family who were unable to care for her due to her epilepsy, which is well controlled with daily meds. In addition to cuddling, Izzy loves to have her soft belly rubbed and loves to run and play.She is leash trained (and does not pull), and is 100% house broken. She is a superb watch dog as her personality changes only when strangers approach. She gets along famously with the cats, Goldens, and people in her foster home.
Izzy is ideal for an individual or family who wants a truly devoted, obedient, loving, protective and feminine girl. People at the dog park remark on her beauty, great behavior, and good nature. Her foster parents also adore her and would adopt her if there were not medical issues with one of the foster parents. She is spayed and totally up to date on all her shots.  She is ready for her furever home.

Izzy is being fostered in the Charleston area.

Mickey: This beautiful purebred British Cream Golden Retriever is 3.5 yr. old and was turned in to Grateful Goldens because he suffers from uncontrolled seizures.  He is as sweet as he is beautiful and gets along with the other dogs in his foster home and loves human attention.

We are committed to helping Mickey and that's where Golden Angels come to the aid of both Mickey and the rescue. 

Luke is a handsome 8 month old Golden boy who needed more exercise than his Mom was able to provide him due to recent health issues.  She loved him so much that she did what she felt was the best thing for him and entrusted him to our care to find him a forever home.  Luke is up-to-date on his vaccines, neutered and on flea and heartworm preventatives.  He is a happy, healthy and very loving boy who is having a blast playing with his Golden foster brother and sister and soaking up attention from his foster parents.

Luke is being fostered in the Grand Strand area.

Misty has had a rough life.  She showed up at a woman's farm, pregnant and no place to go.  The woman took her in and helped deliver her babies and cared for the little family.  She found homes for the babies, and planned to keep Misty because she was such a sweet girl.  Unfortunately, retrievers and birds (in this case chickens) don't always mix, and Misty liked to retrieve them from the chicken pen.  Chickens notwithstanding, this is such a sweet girl!  She gives kisses, loves to cuddle, and is even nurturing to the other dogs in her foster home!!

Unfortunately, she is heartworm positive and when she heals from her spay, we will begin her treatment.  We think she is about 7 years old, and is now up to date on shots and has been spay.  Looking for love and kisses?  This is your girl!! Misty is being fostered in the Coastal Georgia area.
Zoe, a beautiful 4 year old, came into rescue due to the trauma of a long airplane flight which instilled her with fears of separation.  Her family unit of Mom, Dad, boys and girls as well as an older dog tried to work her though the issues but sadly determined that they could not provide her with an environment where she could happily exist.  The foster family has been working with her and a trainer to identify ways to support her and diminish the behaviors being shown when she attaches herself to the male or leader of the pack.  She is currently going on daily walks as part of a pack, car trips and visits to pet friendly businesses to reinforce her understanding of life outside a house.  Zoe is very smart, has charming manners, does well living with children and knows lots of commands.  She will need a furever home with well seasoned dog people, another dog in the house and lots of structure to support her while she learns to trust that her human will always come back.  If you have the time, desire to share your love with a girl who truly needs it and the ability to continue working with professionals, please consider this blonde charmer.

Zoe is being fostered in the Charleston area.
Sandy is a happy girl full of life!  When she was first brought into the Grateful Golden Rescue Sandy was very timid and shy but has since blossomed.  At her foster home, Sandy loves to collect the toys, eat treats (yes she sits!), and play with her foster brother and all of the dogs at the local dog park.  At home she is very low key but can get excited when it is time to play.  She is a very quick learner and we think will have no trouble catching on to new tricks and manners.  Overall she is polite on her leash but does get excited when she meets another dog or sees a squirrel!  Not once has she shown signs of aggression nor snapped at any person or other dog.  She is just a lover looking for her furrever home.  Sandy will likely do better in a household with another dog because she really seems to enjoy company.  Oh and she loves to go on car rides, sticking her head out the window, letting the wind blow through her golden curly fur.

Sandy has completed her heart worm treatment and has her bags packed!
Augie was located recently in a rural Georgia shelter by one of the wonderful GGR volunteers who looked past the shelter statement that HE was a brown female Labrador Retriever. Augie is a handsome smaller golden male and is about 2 or 3 years old. He settled into his foster home without any problems, has accepted being crated and, although he is still intact, is very submissive. He loves nothing better than to sit by your side and get pets. Augie is Heartworm positive and will begin heatworm treatments as soon as he recovers from his neuter.

Augie is being fostered in the Charleston area.

Julie is a sweet 1-year old who came to us after she showed up as a stray and the woman who found her wanted to get her to a good home.  She is in a foster home with cats and other dogs, as well as visiting grandchildren, and is fine with everyone.  She is up-to-date on her vaccinations, but is heartworm positive and will be starting the treatment soon. 

Julie is being fostered in the Coastal Georgia area.

Tucker was turned in to Animal Control after his owner had 2 strokes and could no longer care for him.  The shelter called us immediately when they saw his sweet personality because they knew we'd find him a wonderful home.  He has such a great personality!  He talks to his food bowl and with his toy in his mouth (the toy is one that the people at the shelter gave him), he has excellent house manners and is walking much better on a leash since we switched him to a harness.  He is fine with the cats in his foster home and doesn't seem to be interested in squirrels.  He stands on his hind legs when excited and will gently give you a hug.  He knows sit and down and is good with strangers - he loves everyone!!  He will make someone a great buddy!!!!

He is 7 years old, neutered and up to date on his vaccinations.  Unfortunately he is heartworm positive, but could go to his new home in a foster-with-intent-to-adopt situation during his treatment. 

Tucker is being fostered in the Coastal Georgia area.

Chipper was turned in to rescue when his owner could no longer deal with his allergies.  He has been seen by our vet, and he is responding well to meds.  He is about 4 years ago, neutered, heartworm negative and up-to-date on his shots.  He has a wonderful, loving personality and wants to be lying near you all the time.  He has great house manners and gets along with the other dogs in his foster home.  However, he tends to be a little too "playful" with cats and would be better in a home without cats.

Chipper is being fostered in the Coastal Georgia area.

BJ lived a lot of his 7 years on the end of a tether in a yard as his human was older and didn't have 'house dogs.'  This sweetheart came into rescue after his owner passed away. Brown eyes that melt your heart, a fuzzy head and a skinny tail wagging hard is now your first impression of BJ.. BJ is skittish and will back away when approached, however, turn your back on him and wander away, he'll follow you in hopes of a morsel to nibble.  He has recently been neutered, vetted, UTD on all his shots and is HW negative.  He has successfully transitioned into his foster home, is getting along with his foster parents and 3 other furry foster siblings.  He is good in a crate but quickly earned full house privileges. He knows sit and walks well on a leash. He needs a family that will show him that the world is not a scary place.

He is being fostered in the Grand Strand area.
Zeva is a beautiful 2 year old Golden girl who was sadly turned in to our rescue due to her owner’s ongoing health issues.  Zeva is a sweet, laid back girl who is enjoying the company of her foster Golden brother who is showing her the ropes.  She is up to date on her vaccines, already spayed, and other than a little fear of loud noises, is a turn-key girl.  She is ready for her furever home!

Zeva is being fostered in the Grand Strand area.
Shadow is quite the happy boy these days now that he is in rescue.  Found as a stray by Animal Control, Shadow came into rescue weighing only 45 lbs., anemic and heartworm positive.  No longer scrounging for food, this handsome 4 year old boy is now eating well and putting on some much needed weight.  He is up to date on his vaccines and once he has reached a good weight and no longer anemic, he will be scheduled for his neuter.   Once he recovers from his neuter, he will begin his heartworm treatment.  Although Shadow has some hurdles, he is a friendly and sweet boy who is now loving life.  Stay tuned for updates.

Shadow is being fostered in the Grand Strand area.

Foster If you're looking for a small golden, open your hearts for a some extra large loving from Foster.  He's approximately 2-1/2 years old and sweet, sweet, sweet!  There's a lot packaged in this 48lb. boy.  He's up to date on shots, neutered and Heartworm negative.  in fact, he's just completed his intermediate dog obedience course. He's well socialized, too.  He takes  medication daily for seizures and they are under control.  His family had to make a very hard decision to let him find a new home after just 5 months with them and tearfully turned him over to us as they could not provide the exercise he needs and loves.  He has been an only dog, but likes other dogs.  He's currently being fostered successfully with four cats!

Holly is about a year and a half old. She found herself in a shelter with no options, until the shelter contacted us to take her. She is safe and sound this Christmas in her foster home enjoying a wonderful Christmas morning. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Holly is being fostered in the Coastal Georgia area.
This is Angel, and that she is. Even though she's only 3 years old, she's apparently been bred continuously and was left behind with her puppies in an abandoned home. They were all in bad shape, but a group of good Samaritans nursed her and her puppies back to health and turned her over to us to find her a wonderful furever home.

Angel is being fostered in the Coastal Georgia area.
Caesar is a fun loving 6 year old whose owners turned him in because of lifestyle changes.  He has excellent house manners and has been a great "big brother" to the younger dog in his foster home, teaching him limits and manners.  He would be a great addition to a loving family with kids and perhaps another dog to play with.  He is up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and neutered and has his bags packed!

Caesar is being fostered in the Coastal Georgia area. 

Carson is an amazing dog who came to us from a shelter with no background information, but with a testy attitude (we can only imagine what he had experienced before he got to the shelter).  With the expert help of a trainer and an awesome foster, he has overcome his issues and was the hit of our last event at PetSmart in Savannah!  He sits and lays down on command.  His foster is working with him on going to his mat and staying until released.  He likes to go for rides in the car and wants to go with you when every time you leave the house.  He has excellent house manners.  He does great with children (his foster has grandsons ages 6, 8, and 13).  He walks well on a leash and would be fine for an older couple or a single female.  He enjoys playing with the younger golden in his foster home but is also content to lay around and be a golden.  There are no cats at his foster home, but when he encounters them on his walks, they don't seem to bother him.  He also ignores squirrels and birds.  He is estimated to be 2 years old.

Carson is being fostered in the Coastal Georgia area.
Emma is a tall, blonde and white beauty. With her third birthday rapidly approaching this February, Emma is wishing for a new forever family.  She was very reluctantly returned to GGRLC due to multiple lifestyle changes in her adoring family.  Her foster family consists of multiple male and female fur siblings and she is fitting in wonderfully.  She still has a good amount of energy that she needs to release daily, so she would love to live with a runner or active family. She loves chew toys and toys she can chase, but is more than willing to share them. She would do best in a home with a mature dog, who is preferably still playful, to ease her transition and keep her company when left alone. She is up to date on shots and ready for her furever home.

Emma is being fostered in the Charleston area.
Libby is a very sweet girl who was picked up as a stray. She is about 7 or 8 years old and loves people, children, other dogs and cats. She has great house manners and although she is good in a crate, she can be trusted to stay alone in the house. Everyone at the vet's office is in love with her, as were the staff at the shelter who contacted us about taking in this little mixed girl.  She is currently receiving medical treatment for her ears and, once she is cleared, she will be spayed.  She is, however, heartworm positive which will be treated after she recovers from her spay.  GGR is currently looking for a family to fall in love with her and help her through her heartworm treatment so they can then adopt her.

Ranger: Ranger's owners asked us to find him a good home because of his flea allergy being aggravated where they were living, as well as his mom's increased allergy issues.  While it broke their heart to let him go, they knew it was the best for him.  He is fine with everyone, including children, other dogs, and usually indifferent to cats.  This beautiful boy is 5 years old, up-to-date on vaccinations and heartworm negative.  He has excellent housemanners, knows lots of commands and his foster has been working with him on a lead.   His bags are packed and he's ready to roll!!

Ranger is being fostered in the Coastal Georgia area.

Barney: If you love goldens, but your lifestyle does not permit you to have a full size golden, Barney is the dog for you. Barney has all of the golden attributes, but in a small, apartment or condo sized package. Barney is only 1 ½ years old and would do best in an active home with a gentle, but firm hand to smooth his rough edges. He does will with other dogs and has charmed his foster family. Barney is Heartworm positive, but will begin his treatment soon. Barney is being fostered in the Charleston area.
Sam is a very active 8 1/2 year old blonde boy who was tearfully surrendered by his family because of a lifestyle change. To help transition him into a new forever home, GGRLC took advantage of a 3 week obedience training opportunity. This intensive program has prepared Sam to be an even better dog and his training will follow him into his new home. He is UTD on shots, is HW Negative. Sam has graduated and has his bags packed. Sam is being fostered in the Charleston area.
Only three H puppies still available.  Get 'em while you can!  Hallie, Harrison, and Hutch have a gorgeous black lab mom and a handsome blonde golden retriever dad.  They are eleven weeks old as of April 6, 2014, and are ready for their furever homes.  They are happy sleeping in their crates at night and for naptime.  We're still working on potty training, but they aren't far away from getting it completely.  Hallie is about half the size of the others, who weigh in at around 20 lbs, but feisty and as independent as she can be. She's even beginning to catch up to her brothers in size.  On their last visit to the vet Hallie had gained 33% of her body weight, while the boys had gained about 28%.  All are loving, sweet, and smart.  They get along well with other dogs.  Even though they have not meet any cats, they are young enough that they would welcome cats as friends.  One of their brothers who has been adopted has become very friendly with his new cat sibling.  Fill out your application today and send it in before they are all gone.

Grady is a 1 1/2 year old Golden Doodle who was sadly surrendered to our rescue when his family made the difficult decision that they could not provide him with the time and exercise that he needs.  Being a busy family with two small children, Grady's size was overwhelming to their small children and they felt, in the proper situation, this wonderful boy would reach his full potential.  He is a tall, 75 lb. boy who is up to date on his vaccines, neutered, heartworm negative, on flea and heartworm preventatives, and microchipped.  Grady is one handsome, sweet and loving boy who is cat-friendly and will make an amazing addition to a family with older children and/or larger dogs who will be committed to providing him with training and exercise.  His bags are packed and he is ready for his forever family!

Grady is being fostered in the Grand Strand area.

Mickey Update 4/21/14
Mickey has come a long way in his struggle with seizures and his meds seem to be working. Thanks to Golden Angels who supported him, and volunteers who researched med suppliers, we've been able to get his meds more affordable. This sweet boy deserves an extra-special home - perhaps yours?   Whoever adopts him will get a real sweetie who loves hanging out with his people.
