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 are moved to foster homes for basic evaluation or to complete any medical treatment they may need before being released. If you see a dog with a status of available soon, we accept applications and inquiries from those already approved, with the understanding that they will be a bit longer in our care before being released.

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!
Be sure to click on the photos below for a close up view and and please check back often for updates.

 

Mason Jose 3293

Annie Aspen 3254

Muffin Jody 3283

Mason Jose 3293 Age: 13 years
Gender: male
Breed: golden retriever
Weight: 78 lbs.
Status: available

A stray found by students with a small apartment, Mason is a sweet boy who is approximately 13 years old. Although he has eye sight problems, he does well finding his way about the house, to his people and his food and water bowls. A lovable guy, Mason seldom barks and enjoys lying near his foster siblings and foster mom.

At his vet’s suggestion, Mason is working on slimming down. He enjoys walking and although he tugs occasionally, he walks well on a leash. Storms don’t seem to upset Mason – he’s just a laid back sweetie.

The family that finds room in their heart for this senior golden will be blessed with the best golden’s have to offer…unconditional love.

Annie Aspen 3254 Age: 8 years
Gender: female
Breed: golden retriever
Weight: 64 lbs.
Status: available

Annie came to GRRMF after being found in a shelter with a large cyst on her tail requiring immediate attention. Have you ever tried keeping a happy golden from tail wagging it so it would heal properly? Not an easy feat. Thanks to our vet and foster family’s gentle care, she has successfully healed but with a slightly shorter tail – her new endearing trademark. Through it all she has been an absolute delight. Annie is also completing her series of medicated baths to clear up her itchy skin.

Annie is completely housebroken and has wonderful inside manners. Some work is needed with training on commands but she’s getting there. This Velcro girl is confident as well as a cuddle bug. She ignores the cats, enjoys the foster’s dog and all the animals she has met on her walks. She rides well in the car and loves to be petted and brushed. Annie loves to be around her humans and is an all-around great girl who will need a special family to care for her aging needs, making the next years her best ever!

Muffin Jody 3283 Age: 10 years
Gender: female
Breed: golden retriever
Weight: 90 lbs.
Status: available

Surrendered when her family had to relocate, Muffin is a very sweet senior lady. She loves visiting with the neighbors – human or dog as well as kitties. Muffin adores being petted and enjoys snuggling on the sofa or belly rubs on the floor. She follows her foster mom around and enjoys being nearby.

Always ready for a trip, Muffin will lay quietly in the backseat and has little difficulty getting out, though she appreciates a boost up into the car. She is becoming interested in chasing lizards on the porch and when she tires out, takes a nap. Not afraid to be left alone, Muffin behaves herself and waits patiently for her human family to return greeting them with happy tail wagging.

Currently Muffin is being treated for some skin issues and her foster family is helping her lose a few pounds. Muffin will be ready for adoption soon to a home who would love to make room for this gentle easy going girl.

Biscuit Macoy 3241

Lizzie Janis 3291

Biscuit Macoy 3241 Age: 10 years
Gender: male
Breed: golden retriever mix
Weight: 75 lbs.
Status: available

Meet our sweet senior Biscuit who, with his smiling face and one floppy ear, will capture your heart. Biscuit came to GRRMF when his owner, who nurtured him from a pup, had to be transferred to a medical facility. He was lovingly raised with good house manners and social skills, and enjoys going for walks and sniffing everything in the environment.

Biscuit is a sweet boy who loves playing with children and other canines. But, more than anything else, he likes cuddling with his human and sleeping next to you. He has a unique way of “talking” to greet you when you arrive home and also during meal preparations in an attempt to speed up the process. Biscuit will capture your heart with his charming personality and gentle mannerisms.

Lizzie Janis 3291 Age: 2 years
Gender: female
Breed: golden retriever
Weight: 79 lbs.
Status: pending adoption

Lizzie came to GRRMF after her family moved to assisted living and could not take her with them. Lizzie is a dear and has finished her therapy dog training. She is well behaved, knows most of her commands and is housebroken, but being a typical 2-year-old, she occasionally needs to be reminded of right from wrong.

Lizzie doesn’t chase squirrels or lizards but stares at them and barks. If they run, so does she, but usually in the opposite direction! Lizzie does well with children and other dogs.

Lizzie has a congenital cardiac defect which could reduce her life expectancy. She will require daily medicines and a visit the cardiologist twice a year, all requiring some additional expenses. Yet even on restricted exercise, this hasn't stop Lizzie from enjoying life and being a typical happy girl! Need a special lady? Lizzie could be your girl!

Lucky Janis 3288

Trixie Aspen 3252

Diamond Jody 3281

Lucky Janis 3288 Age: 10 years
Gender: female
Breed: golden retriever
Weight: 93 lbs.
Status: available

Lucky is the family who adopts Lucky Janis. She has been well trained and knows her commands and if asked to "stay" she will stay put.

Lucky enjoys her toys, playing fetch, walks and lots of love and belly rubs. She gets along well with other animals. Storms don't bother this brave gal - even a vacuum will only encourage her to move out of the way but she's not afraid.

Lucky has a mellow personality and will entertain herself or follow you around until you have time to pay attention to her. About the only issue Lucky has is a bit of difficulty with her hips so she would be better in a one floor home. Are you the fortunate family that will give Lucky her forever home?

Trixie Aspen 3252 Age: 1 year
Gender: female
Breed: Labrador Retriever mix
Weight: 42 lbs.
Status: available

Happy first birthday Trixie! Sugar and spice and everything nice is what Trixie is made of. This sweet girl's family didn't have time to spend with her so she has been busy learning how great life can really be. You can imagine how frightening it would be as a puppy to not have human guidance to teach you the ropes. Trixie needs a family who understands that and be willing to show her that she will be safe with them.

Trixie is mastering her basic command skills and walking nicely on a leash, but most of her training is centered on building confidence. Once fearful of her leash, she now adores going for walks through the park and considers it one of her favorite activities. During car rides Trixie's nose will be pressed up against the window smiling at every car she passes. She is amused by cats although she has not lived with one for any length of time. She plays very nicely with other dogs and has learned to share her toys and treats.

Trixie would be just as happy to be your one-and-only; the center of your universe. After playing, Trixie will snuggle up in your arms, just to hear the words "good girl." This wonderful girl will do well with children as long as they are as gentle as she is. Her enchanting brown eyes and gentle disposition will simply melt your heart. This amazing girl could be just the one to fill your heart and life with the love and devotion.

Botie (also called Beaux) Abhi 3306 Age: 8 years
Gender: male
Breed: golden retriever mix
Weight: 61 lbs.
Status: pending adoption

Meet Botie, or Beaux as his friends call him. Found in a shelter, Beaux is a true gentleman. This Velcro boy knows all his basic commands, is housebroken, sleeps next to the bed at night and doesn’t need a crate.

Beaux gets along well with other animals, enjoys his walks, rides in the car and just loves to love. Once outside Beaux does his business, plays a little fetch but has little interest in squirrels and lizards. His foster mom says he acts younger than his 8 years and is always happy to see you. Could this southern gentleman be in your future?

Codie Ash 3256 Age: 9 years
Gender: male
Breed: golden retriever
Weight: 71 lbs.
Status: pending adoption

Surrendered by a family who no longer could afford a dog, Cody is one gorgeous bundle of love with a tail constantly in motion. You can’t help but know he enjoys your attention but don’t be misled by his age – he’s a youngster through and through.

Cody is well behaved. No counter surfing for this boy although he has a healthy appetite. Cody gets along well with his foster sibling and cats. He adores walks and does well on the leash and also enjoys exploring the back yard. Cody knows commands and responds quickly. He enjoys a game of fetch and playing with his toys. He’s even been known to play ball all by himself. Occasionally he thinks he’s a lap dog and you won’t mind having him in your lap because he’s just that sweet. Cody is fearful of thunder and fireworks but his thunder shirt and a gentle touch with comforting distractions help him cope.

While he loves attention, he will entertain himself with a snooze when you need alone time. He behaves well when home along with his foster sibling and happily greets you at the door. All this loving redhead wants is a soft bed at night and a family to shower affection on him. It will be a lucky family that adopts Cody.

Sam on the left upon arrival at GRRMF and Sam on the right working on slimming down. Click on the photos for larger images.

Age: 4.5 years   Gender: male   Breed: golden retriever   Status: available soon
Weight: Intake 168 lbs. red start icon weight in on 8/21 now at 138 lbs. (Down by 30 pounds!)

Surrendered to GRRMF when his owner died, Sam completed his intake vet exam, met a kitten in the waiting room he did great with and seems joyful with every person he has met since arriving in rescue.

Now settled in with his foster family, he has lots of foster siblings to play with but prefers to just catch a ball or snooze. Because of his weight, he is slow to get up but once he’s moving he’s pretty steady and mobile. A pudgy guy, Sam has started a special diet of 1 cup Wellness Core Low Fat dry dog food with a cup of added baby carrots morning and evening to fill his tummy. He is not a fan of the “traditional” green beans for weight loss.

An overall happy boy, thunderstorms don’t seem to bother him much, he likes to carry a toy around in his mouth and enjoys the attention of being petted and rubbed. He is showing interest in swimming in the pool and this will be supervised closely due to his weight and mobility issues. There is a slow and gentle road ahead for this sweet boy to ensure his wellness and readiness for adoption.


As you can see by his weight, Sam will not be ready for a while but please follow Sam on his weight loss journey preparing him for his final goal; his loving forever home.
