Meet Lady

I have an Adoption Pending and will be going home soon. But I hope you will consider one of our other wonderful dogs in need. Thank you!

Lady is the gorgeous girl dog half of a breeding pair of Goldens who were abandoned in their home by their owner. It is really difficult to imagine how anyone could do this to a loving pair of Goldens who have been used to produce puppies for profit time and time again. A kind neighbor took them in but she had dogs and cats of her own and so could not keep them. We determined that Lady and her “husband” Bear could be separated, giving each an opportunity to blossom and receive love and attention just for being themselves.

Lady is a beautiful Golden Retriever. She is 9 years old and a perfect weight at 63 lbs with a moderate activity level. She knows the commands “sit,” “stay,” and “kennel.” She rides nicely in the car, loves to play fetch, and loves human attention even more, showing typical Golden enthusiasm. She is passive with other large dogs, but she chased the small dogs and cats in her temporary home. She seems so happy to get attention without having to compete with other dogs. She is a lovely, happy Golden who deserves the best after a lifetime of raising puppies.

Lady has been spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped. She tested heartworm positive and is now undergoing heartworm treatment. Her coat is sparse in back, probably due to flea allergies, and she has been treated for this. Her mobility is fine with no other medications needed. Lady will be ready to travel to her new forever home in mid-March.

Lady has an Adoption Pending but hopes you will consider one of our other dogs in need. Thank you!

Rescued dogs come with a range of needs - from behavioral to emotional to medical. When approved applicants adopt such dogs, they agree to continue the rehabilitation we have begun.

If not yet approved for adoption, please visit our website to learn more and to submit an online application:

Please DO NOT use the ASK ABOUT button to contact us, about this dog, as that will delay our ability to respond to your inquiry. Please direct any questions regarding your application status to:

Thank you!

Before being approved to adopt, all potential adopters will be required to complete our online application and participate in our pre-adoption review process. The process includes the completion of an online application, a reference from the applicants' vet, a phone interview, and a visit to the applicants' home. The application process helps us determine what type of Golden would be best suited for the applicants' life style. In some cases, the specific dog you are interested in may have found a home before this process is complete or further assessment may indicate that this dog is not the right match for your family. We are frequently getting new Goldens in need of a home, so we encourage you to apply and complete the application process so that when the right dog comes along you will be ready.

The information provided on each dog is based on the observations of our vets, volunteers, fosters, and when available, trainers. While we do our best to report any and all issues, SGRR does not make any guarantees as to the health or temperament of any dog. Dogs evolve differently in different environments and we cannot predict with any certainty how the dog you adopt will behave and adapt in your home.

SGRR ADOPTION FEES - Effective May 1, 2020 (subject to change)

$750 Puppy - up to 6 months
$650 Young 6 months - 6 years
$550 Senior 7 - 9 years
$450 Senior 10 years and older

$550 Young Special Needs
$400 Senior 7+ Special Needs

$1000 Young Bonded Pair

A contract is signed on the day of adoption. Under the terms of the contract, all adopters are required to bring their SGRR dog to a vet within 7 business days. All dogs receive basic veterinary care prior to adoption. However, if an adopter's vet identifies an illness that an adopter is not willing to treat, then the dog may be returned and a full refund would be provided.

Most of our dogs are fostered in private homes. We do not have a facility to visit. We are committed to our dogs before, during, and after adoption! To this end, the rescue retains an interest in each dog and our dogs can never be surrendered, re-homed, or sold. Should an adopter no longer be able to keep their SGRR dog, SGRR must be notified so that we can take the dog back into rescue and place it into another home. We reserve the right to remove a dog at any time should we find the adopter is no longer providing proper care. Adopters agree to follow up visits as needed.

Please be a ray of light for this Sunshine dog and make a tax deductible donation toward medical care and other expenses. Every cent of your generosity goes directly toward the care of a Sunshine dog.
