Russell came to our rescue from a St Landry's Parish in Louisiana where he was found wandering around by a good Samaritan. She took him into her home until our rescue could take him. Russell is believed to be about 2 years-old and has the look of a Golden Retriever/Shepherd.
The staff at the vet's office, where Russell is being boarded, are in love with this boy! He is one of those dogs who will lean on you when you pet him and tries to be as close to you as he can be. He certainly seems to have belonged to someone in his prior life as he knows the commands "sit" and "paw." Russell walks pretty well on the leash and rode well in the car during his freedom ride to our vet's office. He met another dog there and was very amicable. He is a really nice dog who will be a wonderful companion for a very lucky someone!
Russell has been brought up-to-date on vaccinations, is neutered, micro-chipped, and he is heartworm negative. For the first year of adoption, he must be given the brand name Heartgard for his heartworm preventative. He will be coming north for direct adoption on 1/23/2021.
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 you would like to be part of Russell's rescue story, and you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact Donna Toncic at: SunshineGoldens@gmail.com to be considered to adopt Russell.

ABOUT OUR RESCUE
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.

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.
