Meet Sasha

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

Pretty Sasha spent three weeks, at the City of Mobile Shelter in AL, where she was taken in as a stray. Being a black dog, she was passed by time and time again by prospective adopters. No one took her home, as happens all too often to black dogs, no matter how sweet and loving they may be. When we learned what a good girl Sasha is, we took her into Sunshine to find her a forever home.

Sasha is estimated to be six years old, weighs 65 lbs, and is most likely a purebred Black Lab. Our lead Southern volunteer, Lisa, was so impressed with Sasha when she met her, remarking that Sasha is prettier than her pictures show and that Sasha has the sweetest personality. Sasha loved the soft stuffed toys that Lisa brought her as well as treats and being petted. She is a little shy when first meeting new people but warms up quickly. Sasha liked the other dogs she met at the vet clinic, nosing up politely for a sniff and a hello. She has not had an opportunity to meet cats. Sasha's coat is very shiny and she has a nice moderate energy level. We think she will be so happy to be someone’s walking partner and special girl!

Sasha is spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped. She is completing heartworm treatment and will be ready to travel to a new forever home in mid-February.

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 Sasha's rescue story, and you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact the Adoption Committee at: to be considered to adopt sweet Sasha.

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

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.

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.
