I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs. Thank you!
Pretty little Tess is a 7-year old Golden Retriever Mix who was placed by Sunshine as a young dog and was recently returned to us because of illness in her family. As a Sunshine return, we welcomed this sweet girl with open arms and promised to find her a loving home once again.
Tess is absolutely precious! She is very Golden in both behavior and appearance with her lovely gold coat and feathered tail. She acts younger than her years, is feisty and active and weighs about 40 LBS. She likes other dogs and children. She walks pretty well on a leash, although we believe she will improve her leash skills when she knows she is with her own person. Tess loves riding in the car too! We believe she would love, so much, to have someone to love her so she could love right back!
Tess is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed. Her teeth are worn down, and she has been treated for an ear hematoma but she is otherwise quite healthy and active. She is completing heartworm treatment and will be ready for her home in early December.
If you are approved to adopt through SGRR, please contact the Adoption Committee at CandyVS2@aol.com to be considered to adopt Tess.

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.

**Please note: The fees listed represent a slight increase and are effective for applications received after June 1 2014. We regret the need to increase the fees for our dogs, but found it necessary due to the increased costs we are faced with for each dog's care and placement.
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.
