Thank-you and we look forward to working with you to find the right Golden for your family.
Bailey is a sweet 9 year old boy whose owner died. The family decided to keep him, but put him in a shed where he barely had room to lay down. They would let him out and feed him, but not much else. A friend and dog lover heard about Bailey and told the family she would take him and find him a good home. She contacted us. We have had him vetted, he is in good health, including heartworm negative. The vet said that his back legs were fine except for atrophy. All that was needed was some exercise & weight loss.
Thank goodness the veterinarian was correct! With the help of some good walks and dog park visits, Bailey is now bounding up and down the steps at his foster home. He is having fun wrestling with his foster (2 dogs & 2 humans) siblings. He is a good dieter, as he has already shed over 8 pounds. He gets along with all other animals, as he has been with cats, dogs & birds with no problems. These changes have brought out his classic golden personality -- just wants to meet and get attention from everyone he meets. His bags are packed!
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
Bailey is a 4-5 yr old blonde girl who came to us due to life changes with her family. She loves people. She has great house manners. She’s fine with left alone with the run of the house. She loves snacks and anything that falls on the floor. She has no feeding issues - you can even take food out of her mouth. She would probably do better in a single dog family, but no more then one other dog. She tends to be intimidated by small dogs and cats. She loves to shred stuffed animals, and she LOVES baths/showers, walking right on in whether she’s invited or not!!
Bailey is being fostered in the Coastal GA area.
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!!

Mickey came into rescue with Harry Lee and is a 7 years young blonde boy who loves to play with the younger dog in his foster home as well as other dogs in the neighborhood who come to visit. We originally thought he and Harry Lee were bonded, but Mickey enjoys the company of more playful dogs than laid-back Harry, and is really enjoying his new life in his new foster home. He is overweight but has been put on a training program and he enjoys – and even demands – his morning and evening walks and gets lots of exercise playing with his foster brother. His exercise program is working because he’s lost almost 10 lbs so far!! It’s hard to imagine that he’s actually 7 – he acts much younger! And every day more and more of his funny personality comes out. Mickey is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations and has his bags packed!!
Mickey is being fostered in the Coastal GA area.
Miles is a sweet 3-year old boy who showed up as a stray in a rural area. After waiting for a month for him to be reclaimed, he found his way to us. He is in a foster home with other dogs and a cat and is doing fine. Unfortunately he is heartworm positive, so he will start his treatment after he recovers from his neuter surgery.
Miles is being fostered in the Coastal GA area.
Skipper's family tearfully asked us to find a good home for him because life changes prevented them from being able to keep him. He is 14 months old and sweet as can be! He gets along with other dogs and loves people, both kids and adults -- we aren't sure about cats yet. He loves to cuddle and gives great kisses! Unfortunately, he is heartworm positive, so he will start his treatment as soon as he recovers from his neuter surgery.

Donovan is a handsome senior Golden that decided to go on an adventure with his Corgi buddy and was picked up by Animal Control. Since he was wearing a collar with tags the shelter contacted his people who said they didn't want both dogs any longer and wouldn't be coming to reclaim them. Well, their loss is our gain because this wonderful boy who we believe may have been an outside dog due to a nylon rope still tied on his collar is now living the Golden life at his foster home with his two Dachshund foster siblings. Donovan is a love sponge who has tons of love to give and certainly loves receiving as much attention as you will give him. He has gone for a much needed spa day, is now up-to-date on his vaccines, is heartworm negative and on flea and heartworm preventatives and will be neutered soon. He will have his bags packed soon and will make an amazing Golden canine and/or human companion for one lucky individual or family.
Donovan is being fostered in the Grand Strand area.
Rawleigh is 7 years young, not quite full golden but acts like the golden we all want. She came to us when things changed for her family. Her foster family says that she gets along well with her three four legged foster siblings, although she does like to have her own space and will go to her crate on her own during the day and night. Her house manners are great. She would do best in a home where someone is home most of the day because she has slight thunderstorm fears. She attended her first GGR event last weekend and charmed everyone who met her. She's current with shots and ready to be loved by your family! She is available now as she is heartworm negative.
Rawleigh is being fostered in the Grand Strand area.
Daisy, Debra, Davey, and Denise were turned into GGRLC by the people who have their parents. Mom is an English setter, reddish in color and on the smaller side. Dad is a full-blooded blonde golden retriever. All of these puppies are as sweet and cuddly as anyone could ask. They love being around people and being held by anyone who will rub their bellies. They are crate trained and very close to being potty trained; no accidents in their crates, but sometimes forget to go out to pee during the day when they are playing. With just a little work they'll be completely house trained. Although it's hard to know at this point, they may be small as adults. They are reported to have been born on 12-4-12, but are small compared to other goldens of the same age. They've had all their shots and will require spaying/neutering when they are six months old. They ride in the car well and get along great with other dogs. On top of all that, they are all beautiful!! If you've fallen in love with one (or more) of them, fill out an application and send it in. Daisy, Debra, Davey, and Denise are looking for their furever homes.
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.
Sophie is a sweet, loving, beautiful, red girl who loves to play with the other puppies and big dogs in her foster home. She came to GGRLC from a family who had never had a puppy before. They realized they didn't have the skills to teach her the people rules puppies need to know or deal with puppy teeth and puppy antics. So they made the best choice for Sophie: to let us find her a home where she can get her needs met. She is four months old, crate-trained, and close to being potty trained, but not quite 100% yet. Give her lots of love, attention, kindness and training and she'll become the best friend you've ever had. She's very smart and learns quickly. She's had all her shots and is up to date on heartworm/flea preventative.

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.
Pearl is a sweet 11.5 yr old girl who was turned in to a rural shelter when her owner went into rehab and had no one to take her. She has been on heartworm prevention and is up to date on her vaccinations. She has wonderful house manners. Her personality is starting to blossom in her foster home -- check out her singing audition on our Facebook page at Pearl Sings!! She is looking for a home with lots of love and someone to hang out with - she's very low maintenance!
Pearl is being fostered in the Coastal GA area.
Jon'Jon is a very handsome, 4.5 year old RED boy whose owner only had him a couple of months before realizing that that he needed much bigger yard to enjoy the outdoors. Jon'Jon is already neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, HW negative and on flea and heartworm preventatives . He is a healthy and happy boy who is truly enjoying the canine companionship of his three Goldie foster siblings. Jon'Jon would love a canine companion to romp with in a fenced-in yard with ample space. He is ready and looking for his forever home!
Jon'Jon is being fostered in the Charleston area.
Repo, although 7 years young, is an active dog who wants to please, but like all Goldens he tries to push the boundaries and get away with whatever he can (he can surf a sofa like no one's business). That being said he is a sweet dog and reacts well to voice commands and other cues. He is very smart and aims to please. He is house trained and will voice his need to go outside. Repo requires regular exercise and plays a mean game of "ball" before a good pet followed by a solid nap.
If you want a golden without the time consuming challenges of training a puppy; this guy is for you!
Repo is being fostered in the Charleston area.
River is a beautiful 4 year old girl who was tearfully surrendered to us when circumstances prevented her owners from keeping her. She knows basic commands, but will require a firm hand to continue to develop her best qualities. She would do best as an only dog or with a settled older dog.
