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.

Leal Oscar 3200

Ainsley Shae 3183

KC Nico 3215

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

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 doesnít 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?

Ainsley Shae 3183 Age: 6 years
Gender: female
Breed: golden retriever mix
Weight: 38 lbs.
Status: available

Miss Ainsley was rescued from a shelter and has been with GRRMF while undergoing medical care for heartworm. Her latest vet visit found her totally healthy and ready for adoption.

Her favorable things are eating all her meals, snuggling with her 13 year old golden foster sister, treeing squirrels and "talking" to you when she wakes up. She walks around wagging her tail a lot and is becoming very social. She likes to be the boss and definitely thinks she is a big dog. She is still afraid of being left alone so family and other fur companions help with her comfort.

She has interacted with a variety of dogs, children and peopleÖall met with great joy! Is this little girl the one for you?

KC Nico 3217 Age: 15 years
Gender: male
Breed: golden retriever
Weight: 70 lbs.
Status: available

KC is a southern gentleman surrendered when his owner had to move and could not take him along. At 15 years old, KC has the heart of a ten year old and is sweet as he can be. Like many seniors, he has a few lumps and bumps but they are all benign and don't detract from this gentle golden.

KC gets along well with other dogs, shies away from playing with toys preferring human companionship. His foster mom says he appears to be a little hard of hearing but once you have his attention he will follow along. He is agile for his age, climbing stairs and jumping into the car without assistance. KC loves to ride in the car. His foster mom is feeding him special food as he appears to be a little underweight. He is also receiving joint supplements but other than that, he is a healthy boy. KC loves going for a walk and will sit and lay down when asked. His foster mom says he has had the run of the house with no accidents and no issues.

KC is looking for a loving home where he can curl up on the sofa next to his human family and just shower them with love while they shower him with lots of love, belly rubs, healthy treats and gentle days.

Sheeba Annie 3178

Dale Nico 3210

Nelly Shae 3192

Sheeba Annie 3178 Age: 6 years
Gender: female
Breed: golden retriever mix
Weight: 68 lbs.
Status: available

Sheeba Annie was lovingly surrendered to GRRMF when her owner could no longer care for her. She loves squeaky toys, playing tug-of-war with her foster sibling and is an avid lizard hunter.

Sheeba relishes the one-on-one attention at bath time, being brushed, and will twist herself into a pretzel with enjoyment when you rub her back. She likes to be near her humans and will vocalize her approval when you grab the leash.

The sweetest thing is to hear her happy whimpers when you arrive home! This gal has a heart of gold waiting for you.

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

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. Thatís 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, itís 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.


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 itís 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. Thatís 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.
