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.

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.
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.

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.

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.
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.

Bella is only about a year old, but this little girl had a rough life before she made her way to Grateful Goldens Rescue.  Dumped at an abandoned hunting lodge in the country, she survived by living in a nearby dumpster.  When rescuers found her, she was scared and wouldn't let anyone near her, but they persevered and she made her way to us.  Fast forward to today, now clean, soft and fluffy, she has learned to trust humans and loves to play (her foster mom calls her "Bouncing Bella").  When not playing, she loves to snuggle.  She's inquisitive about the cats, but not aggressive.  Having had heartworms when she first came into rescue, she has just begun to take walks on a leash and is doing very well.  She is spay and up to date on her vaccinations and has her bags packed!!

Bella is being fostered in Coastal Georgia.

Gunner is a sweet 3 year boy. When Gunner was surrendered to Grateful Goldens he had lost almost all of his hair due to severe allergies. Grateful Goldens and some wonderful fosters spent 8 months diagnosing his allergies and helping him to recover. He is now on shots to desensitize him to his allergies and his hair is almost completely grown back. Gunner is ready for a home that will continue is monthly treatments and help him complete his recovery and become the golden he was meant to be.
Gunner is being fostered in the Charleston area.
Jack is a sweet boy who was turned over to one of our vets because of his blindness.  We can't understand why because his blindness certainly doesn't handicap him.  Like any happy dog, he loves to roll in the grass when it is sunny out and he likes to play with the ChuckIt ball. He does well with the other dogs in his foster home, but it did take about 2 weeks for him to feel comfortable with them.  He is in a foster home with a puppy who loves to play with him, and an older dog who likes to ignore him or just lay nearby.  He is pretty low key - he likes to find a comfy place to hang out, and when it is past his bed time, he will bark at the baby gate to go to his bed. Although he cannot see, his nose and ears work exceptionally well!  This sweet boy would love a low-key home to hang out with his humans and enjoy his senior years.

Jack is being fostered in the Coastal GA/Hilton Head area.

This little guy was found scrounging around a gas station - the attendant said he'd been hanging around for several days.  He was extremely skinny and appeared to be looking for food.  When a good Samaritan opened her car door, he jumped right in, as if to say "will you take me home with you?"  He was covered in fleas and ticks, but still as sweet as could be.  After a bath to get rid of the fleas and ticks, they tried to feed him a little bit, but he seemed to choke on it and threw it back up.  They contacted us for help and we of course authorized veterinary care for him. 

Go to our Featured Golden page to see the rest of his story. Wes has some serious medical issues and GGR is taking care of them. He needs Golden Angels to  help with the growing bills. This is a sweet boy who deserves the best. Help us get him back on the Golden path.

Bailey is a sweet 12 year old boy who acts half his age. He came to us through no fault of his own but because of changes to his owners' lifestyle, they could no longer keep him. He demands little in life except someone to pet him. He will sit for hours by your side for an occasional hand reaching out and stroking him. He amuses himself with the dog toys and loves to shake the rope around after throwing it in the air. He is up for walks, just not too long in the heat of the day. He is good with other dogs and children, but we are not too sure with cats. He has been given a clean bill of health and is Heartworm negative. He'll be a handsome fellow once his hair grows out from a summer shave. Bailey has his bags packed and is ready to go.  Bailey is being fostered in Florence.

Captain is a beautiful 3 year old golden boy who was tearfully surrendered by his family because they didn't have enough time for him. His foster dad says Captain is well behaved, loves attention, gets along very well with our dogs, comes when called and is really fun to have around. Captain is up to date on shots and has just completed a basic obedience course and is waiting for his furever home Captain is being fostered in the Charleston area.  
Lani is a sweet 6 year old girl who came to GGR when her family had to move across the country. Lani is Heartworm negative and now up to date on her shots. She loves people, gets along well with other dogs and children. She loves to run on the beach. She is being evaluated for possible hip problems, but would love to find a family willing to help her though any problems we find. Lani is currently in the Charleston area.
Bobber and Minnow, 12 and 13 years old respectively, came to us due to a divorce in the family. They got their unusual names from their Dad who was avid fisherman. They are in good health for their ages and still love to chase a tennis ball. They are up to date on shots, but both are Heartworm positive. We will be starting their Heartworm treatment soon and they would love a wonderful home to recuperate in. These two are both very sweet goldens and since they have been together all of their lives, we would like to keep them together if possible. They are located in the Charleston area.
Odie is a therapy dog that had to be given up by his family due to allergy issues the family had. He is great with children and loves attention. Odie is up to date on his shots and heart worm negative. His bags are packed. This is one sweat boy that would make any family looking for a furkid addition very happy.

Oh....and he's already a star. Click here to see is break out TV appearance.
Myia is a sweet, shy girl about 7 years old who was turned in with another dog because her family developed allergies.  She is a little overweight, but her foster family has her on a fitness program, including short walks and she should be slimmed down in no time.  She is great with cats (even allows the cat to eat her food!!), and loves snuggling with her humans.  She is heartworm negative, up to date on vaccinations, spay, and ready for her furever home.
Trailer about 8 years old, was found as a stray.  He is great with cats, other dogs and got his name because he is a Velcro dog who wants to be with his people all the time.  He has finished his heartworm treatment, is up to date on his vaccinations and has been neutered.  His bags are packed, ready for his new furever home..


Alex was in such good shape when he was picked up by Animal Control that they took him to the local vet rather than the shelter, because everyone thought he had to have an owner looking for him.  Sadly, no one ever came for him and we were called.  He is a very active 18-months old and enjoys running outside, play-wrestling, and of course eating.  He was heartworm positive when he came into rescue, but has had his treatment He is not good with cats.  He is up to date on shots and is ready for his furever home, hopefully with another dog to play with and help burn off some energy.
Lexie has been moved from home to home, first given away on Craigslist, but when the new owner discovered her landlord would not allow her to have a dog, she gave her to her parents, who determined that a young dog was too much for them.  She has a long-standing eye infection which makes the area around her eyes black.  She is being treated by an eye specialist and is responding to treatment, and expected to make a full recovery.  She is estimated to be about 3+ years old.  She is in a foster home with cats and other dogs and does fine with each.  She is heartworm negative and spay.  Won’t you give her the forever home she has been waiting for?
