Available Golden Retrievers

 

Featured below are just some of the many golden retrievers we have available for adoption. Each week we accept additional golden retrievers into our program who then receive their veterinary checkups and then move to foster homes.

If you are serious about adopting, please submit an adoption application so you'll be ready when that special dog catches your eye. Once an application is approved, we work hard to match them with a perfect companion. The adoption timeframe can vary based on the qualities you desire in your golden and the needs of your family. GRRMF cannot predict what golden retrievers will come into our program at any given time. We ask your patience as our volunteer staff works to find you your ideal companion.

Thank you for visiting and please come back often.



T Bone Nico 3211

Hazel Joni 3161

Finley Jess 3165

T-Bone Nico 3211 Age: 2.5 years
Gender: male
Breed: golden retriever
Weight: 80 lbs.
Status: available

T Bone (also called Tebow) has a playful personality, is obedient and very sweet and loving. On November 16th, he was featured on the ABC's "Rescues in Action" TV segment.

He has high puppy energy and loves to play and run, needing more than a daily walk to keep him happy. A hit at the dog park, he plays with the dogs and tennis balls, playing fetch for hours. He loves to swim and happily plays with toys, emptying out the toy box to find just the right one. He enjoys hanging out with his foster brother and being loved by his humans.

If left alone, he waits patiently in his create for your return. Upon arriving home, you’ll be met with a very happy greeting. He also loves to go with you anywhere you’ll take him and rides nicely in a car.

His forever home needs to be willing to spend the time necessary to give this boy all the exercise he needs to release his puppy energy. His rough and tumble play would be better with adults and older children who could partake in his playful energy flow.

Hazel Joni 3161 Age: 20 months
Gender: female
Breed: golden retriever mix
Weight: 52 lbs.
Status: available

After a bit of a rough start, Hazel is now a healthy and happy girl who enjoys all the love, attention, food and fun she can avail herself of. Hazel came to us with a damaged elbow that resulted in the need to amputate her leg but has completely healed from her surgery and seems to be taking in and loving her new lease on life.

Hazel loves all her toys & balls and can be found throwing them around by herself. She's not crazy about water but will agree to getting into her life jacket and going for a swim to help strengthen her back legs and improve muscle tone.

Hazel is good with other dogs and loves being outside playing, watching airplanes and birds in the sky or just curling up in the shade of some trees. She also loves to go with you for car rides and when home, loves to cuddle and finding soft places to curl up and sleep.

Hazel would be good in a forever home with people around all the time, a secure yard to play in and a furry sibling to wrestle with. Do you have a place in your heart and home for this special girl?

Finley Jess 3165 Age: 2 years
Gender: male
Breed: golden retriever
Weight: 59 lbs.
Status: available

Finley is a lovable boy who enjoys being near people. He has a favorite spot on his chest he likes rubbed and will voice his approval. He gets along with his foster siblings, enjoys romping in the backyard and likes going for car rides. He enjoys daily walks and does nicely on a harness as long as you don’t encounter squirrels, cats, dogs, lizards, as he wants to bark and chase them all.

Finley is not fond of thunderstorms and will go under a bed when one is coming. He also has a chronic intestinal issue that requires a special easily digestible diet. It is extremely important that he be monitored to ensure he doesn’t eat anything inappropriate.

Finley would benefit from obedience classes to polish his skills and help channel his wonderful energy in positive ways. Will you look after his diet, help him through thunderstorms and help him channel his energy in gentlemanly fashion? If so, he will love you unconditionally in return.

Lily Nona 3213

Quinn Oscar 3203

Lee Onyx 3206

Lily Nona 3213 Age: 4 years
Gender: female
Breed: golden retriever mix
Weight: 30 lbs.
Status: available soon

Lovely Lily was entrusted to GRRMF by her family after it was found she could not leave the neighbor’s chickens alone. She loves the outdoors and loves to chase the backyard lizards.

Lily rides nicely in a car and walks well on her leash. She knows her basic commands and is a snuggle bunny that loves attention.

Lily enjoys the company of her foster brothers and sister whether she is playing with them or just relaxing and recharging her fun loving doggie batteries.

Quinn Oscar 3203 Age: 15 weeks
Gender: male
Breed: golden retriever mix
Weight: 10 lbs.
Status: available

Quinn and his litter mates were spared from a kill shelter and transported to GRRMF for adoption. This little fellow is quite cute and has a very sweet personality.

Being just 15 weeks old, Quinn is beginning to learn all those new habits like “go potty” outside and not to use those puppy teeth on his humans. Quinn is a good eater and loves to play with his puppy sister as well as his older foster sibling.

Quinn is the typical mile-a-minute boy followed by dropping down for his hour nap before starting it all over again. If you want a snuggle bug, this little guy is for you.

Lee Onyx 3206 Age: 15 weeks
Gender: female
Breed: golden retriever mix
Weight: 14 lbs.
Status: available

Lee and her litter mates were rescued from a kill shelter and brought to GRRMF for adoption. Lee quite inquisitive and always ready to investigate her surroundings.

Lee charges full steam ahead and is always testing the waters. She, like her little brother, is learning the value of “go potty” outside and being gentle with those puppy teeth on her humans.

Lee plays well with her brother and enjoys romps with the golden down the street. She will cuddle with her humans once she is tired and likes to fall asleep in their arms. If you are looking for the cutest little girl, this mix is the one for you.

Rosie Onyx 3197

Finn Archer 3174

Sheeba Annie 3178

Rosie Onyx 3197 Age: 6 years
Gender: female
Breed: golden retriever
Weight: 65 lbs.
Status: available soon

Rosie is a very sweet girl who is settling into her foster home nicely. She was lovingly placed with us by a heartbroken owner who could no longer care for her.

Rosie is housebroken, dog and cat friendly and enjoys going for walks, doing so nicely on her leash.

At this time she is being treated for skin issues and is enjoying a special diet of high-quality food along with exercise to assist in restoring her golden-girl figure.

We hope you have your application on file with us. If not, now is the time to apply as Rosie will be ready for her forever home very soon.

Finn Archer 3174 Age: 2 years
Gender: male
Breed: golden retriever mix
Weight: 76 lbs.
Status: available

Finn came to us from a shelter and has been enjoying all the personal attention and care he has received in his foster home. He arrived in GRRMF as a shy boy but not anymore! He has wonderful manners and gets along with all shapes and sizes of dogs as his foster family has a boarding facility. He enjoys time watching and running with his play pals, displays curious playful interest in kitties, as is great with children of all ages.

Finn is not that interested in crates or the funny sound the plastic tray makes but will happily sleep on the floor next to your bed. He's not much of a furniture guy – except when you're sitting on it. He rides nicely in the car, walks well on a leash, knows his commands, is house broken and does not dig or counter surf.

Finn's favorite things are being groomed and pampered and most of all, resting his head in a lap and getting petted for as long as possible. He is a true and loving golden Velcro boy.

Sheeba Annie 3178 Age: 8.5 years
Gender: female
Breed: golden retriever mix
Weight: 80 lbs.
Status: available

Sheeba came to GRRMF when her owner could no longer care for her. At first glance you see huge eyes and a tongue with more spots than a Dalmatian, but on closer examination you will see a young-at-heart 8-year-old girl with a mellow disposition and a unique personality.

Despite her age and some arthritis, Sheeba is the one who always initiates playtime with her younger foster sibling. She is not a Velcro girl, but when she feels the need for attention she will get one of her “squeaky” toys to announce that loving would be most welcomed. Give her back rubs and watch her twist herself into a pretzel with enjoyment. Her happy tail wagging never stops.

Sheeba loves to converse with her humans by joining in the conversation and has a very expressive face when something sparks her attention. Her head tilts and her ears perk up so high that her brow wrinkles with excitement. When not snuggling with her humans or canine companion, Sheeba can be found on the back porch lizard hunting, watching the duck activity on the lake, or just sunbathing on the warm tile. Being extremely well mannered, she gets to go to work sometimes with her foster Mom and sibling.

Sheeba is a very sweet and gentle gal and would adapt easily into any household. Her dream is a forever home for the holidays and one which includes a canine sibling to be her best fur pal.

Belle Onyx 3209

Dale Nico 3210

Nelly Shae 3192

Belle Onyx 3209 Age: 8 years
Gender: female
Breed: golden retriever mix
Weight: 52 lbs.
Status: available soon

Belle Onyx came to GRRMF from a shelter and exhibits behaviors of having been crated or confined in her prior life. She is now enjoying the freedom and love of a wonderful foster home.

Belle is a huge fan of toys and tennis balls, loves being brushed and when she gets excited will walk backwards and turn in circles. She does well with cats and dogs, is housebroken, knows how to sit, shake and understands “no” makes her human sad so tries to keep them happy at all time.

Belle is definitely Velcro with her humans and foster fur siblings and would do well in a household where both were present during the day. Our special girl is looking for a family that will give her gentle guidance and love to help build her confidence. Are you that special family?

Dale Nico 3210 Age: 8 years
Gender: male
Breed: golden retriever
Weight: 95 lbs.
Status: available soon

Recent arrival Dale was lovingly surrendered to GRRMF by his owners who could no longer devote quality time to him. He is definitely a Velcro boy who enjoys being your shadow and going for car rides.

Squeaker toys and tennis balls are fun, but the best game is chasing the laser light with his foster feline siblings. Dale responds to the commands stay, sit and heel and walks well on a lead. He will be attending some positive reinforcement training sessions to work on his confidence around other dogs.

Dale is looking for a family that spends most of their time relaxing around the home and focusing their love on him. Could your family be the perfect match?

Nelly Shae 3192 Age: 11 years
Gender: female
Breed: golden retriever
Weight: 67 lbs.
Status: available

Is she a golden or a fish? Sometimes there is no difference. That’s our Nelly who loves to swim which is great exercise for her. She will do anything to get into the swimming pool so care must be taken to remind her that when she goes out to potty, it’s not time to swim yet.

Nelly loves her humans and will bark to advise them that she is not inside receiving attention from them. She is a ball fanatic, loves her leisurely walks, as seniors do, and is gentle and loving.

This sweet senior is looking for a loving home that will care for her and give her the best years of her life with that special forever family.

Leal Oscar 3200

Bauer Oscar 3201

Leal Oscar 3200 Age: 6 years
Gender: male
Breed: golden retriever
Weight: 96 lbs.
Status: available soon

Leal is a sweet bundle of energy who will mesmerize you with his soft dark eyes while you stroke his head. He loves to be close to his humans and lay next to them on the sofa while watching TV.

Leal walks well on a leash, but has difficulty curbing his enthusiasm to jump on people to say hello. While he loves his fenced back yard he needs supervision to ensure he remains there as he likes to explore.

He is crate trained and does have some separation anxiety, however a newbie in rescue normally takes some time to settle into the new routines. Children who can be his buddy and help him exercise and use up that golden energy every day will be a great match for him.

He doesn’t particularly like his foster kitty or canine so for now, we are thinking a home without pets may be the best for Leal. He would do well with a family willing to continue the good work his foster parents have started with his positive reinforcement training. Is Leal the gold diamond in the rough for you?

Bauer Oscar 3201 Age: 6.5 years
Gender: male
Breed: golden retriever
Weight: 94 lbs.
Status: available

Bauer is a beautiful six year old “Gentle Giant” that loves family activities including swimming, camping, walking and lots of loving. While he’s a touch overweight he is slimming down and will continue to do so with those wonderful walks his new family will enjoy with him.

Bauer walks well on a leash and has wonderful house manners – no jumping on furniture for this boy. He enjoys the family pool and playing “save the kids” when they are swimming with him.

While he is fine minding the house while you are away, he prefers to be close to his family. A well trained young fellow, Bauer would make a perfect addition to a home with children or another dog. His foster mom says he gets along great with his foster sibling and is super with kids but because he is a big fellow he might overwhelm small children. He ignores cats while out walking and does not like thunder and has his own “thunder shirt”.

 

Meet Our Special Brother Duo:
Marshall and Chopper

 

Marshall Frank 2999   Chopper Javier 3101

Marshall Frank 2999  is:   Age: 8 years   Gender: male   Breed: golden retriever / mix   Weight: 58 lb.   Status: available

Chopper Javier 3101 is:   Age: 7 years   Gender: male   Breed: golden retriever / mix   Weight: 88 lb.   Status: available

GRRMF has another pair! These two boys found each other only after their arrival in GRRMF. Marshall arrived from a shelter in 2013 heartworm positive and went through a lengthy period of treatment and recovery. Today he is working on how to be a confident dog as his unknown prior history has left him shy and lacking confidence. Enter Chopper in 2014, also from a shelter and also heartworm positive upon arrival. Chopper however is a confident, happy go lucky, sloppy kisser, trail blazing, adventure seeking big boy. GRRMF put these two boys together and magic happened! Chopper is showing his brother Marshall the ropes on how to have fun and be brave and it’s working as Marshall is a happier dog as a result!

Both boys love to hang out together, explore their backyard and watch TV with their foster parents. Marshall is not a big walker or runner but enjoys being outside exploring the back yard so when Chopper goes for a walk, Marshall waits patiently in the courtyard for him to return. At one time the courtyard was a scary place for him but now he's calm knowing his buddy Chopper will return. His foster dad said that one day, when they were coming home from a walk they saw Marshall being introduced to and being fine with meeting other dogs and people in the neighborhood. That’s progress!

Although neither dog is a purebred golden, both are truly special to all the GRRMF volunteers who know them. Marshall is stunning with beautiful piercing brown eyes. He has a special need to be in a quiet, loving, consistent and nurturing environment. He will reward you with his adoration and love. Chopper is a mentor, fun loving boy who was so close to being euthanized and found his way to GRRMF through Loving Friends Transport, our angels with wings and wheels. His golden spirit shines through in everything he does and for everyone he meets. We believe he is paying it forward by being a big brother to Marshall.

Chopper loves mentoring Marshall and in turn, Marshall adores and has blossomed with his new brother Chopper. We would like to meet that very special family that will adopt them together.
