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.
Our Featured Golden
Harry Lee came into rescue with Mickey when their owner became extremely ill and could no longer care for them. Harry Lee is a handsome 9-years young red boy who is neutered and up to date on his vaccines. He has great house manners and loves napping on the couch or the bed. We originally thought the two boys needed to stay together, but as it turns out, while Harry Lee gets along fine with the other dogs in his foster home, he would really prefer his own home where he can be the center of attention and soak up all the love!!
Harry Lee is being fostered in the Coastal GA area.
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. Click on the link above to read his story and see how you can help us improve this boy's quality of life.
There is some positive news but Mickey still needs help from the Golden Angels.
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.
Harry Lee Checking Out The Derby Line Up...
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.
Mickey's Birthday 7/4/2013. Born on the 4th!!!
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.
Indie celebrated her personal Independence Day the same day as our country, so we named her "Indie"!! This sweet 9-year old girl was dumped at a kill shelter because they "didn't want her anymore." No one who has met her can understand that because she is as sweet and laidback as can be. As you can see, she's great with children, and gets along with other dogs and cats. She is spay, up to date on shots and heartworm negative and has her bags packed. She has lots of golden love to give!!
Indie is being fostered in the Coastal Georgia 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 Strad 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.
AJ is a handsome boy, 1 ½ - 2 years old, that was left on the shelter porch in his crate. Imagine the shelter workers’ faces when they arrived to see this gorgeous Golden boy! Our rescue did not waste any time bringing this sweet boy into rescue and placing him in a safe, loving foster home. His foster mom reports that AJ didn’t know any commands so we suspect he was an outside dog. He is a smart boy and learned “sit” pretty quickly and is working on learning his basic commands. AJ is now up to date on vaccines and has been scheduled for his neuter and will be ready once he recovers.
AJ 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.

Maddie is a sweet girl about 1 or 2 years old with a great personality. She was dumped at a construction site and one of the workers, being a dog lover, took her home. Although very malnourished, she is in relatively good health and to everyone surprise, she tested heartworm negative. She has gained weight, gets along with other dogs great and is okay with kids. When she is spayed, she will be ready for her furever home.
Maddie is being fostered in the Charleston 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!
