found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Iris is a young and pretty Golden mix girl who was found as a stray wandering in a neighborhood in the Mobile, AL area. She is 35 pounds of cuteness, and is about 18 months old. Take a look at how adorable she is in her video!
When Iris first meets you, she takes a few minutes to warm up and relax, and then she becomes your best friend! She is good with other dogs and adores children. Iris seems to believe cats were created for her to chase, so a cat-free home will suit her best. Iris walks nicely on a leash and loves her walks.
When Sunshine's volunteer was picking her up, Iris slipped away from one of the staff members at the vet clinic. She eventually flopped to the ground and rolled onto her back for a belly rub! This convinced us that a yard with a physical fence will be best for happy, active Iris so that she will have plenty of opportunity to run and play. Iris also reminds us that all rescue dogs must be considered flight risks and must be leashed in unfenced areas. Iris still has a carefree puppy attitude toward life, so someone dedicated to training Iris and bonding with her is going to be rewarded with a wonderful companion.
Iris is spayed, up-to-date on her vaccinations, and is undergoing treatment for heartworm right now. She is presently in AL and will be ready to travel north to her forever home in late January to early February.

A contract is signed the day of adoption. Under the terms of the contract, all adopters are required to bring the rescue to a vet within 7 business days. The dogs receive basic veterinary care prior to adoption. If your vet identifies an illness that an adopter is not willing to treat, then the dog is returned and a full refund is provided.
The information provided on each dog is based on 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 act in your home.
Many of our dogs are fostered in private homes and we do not have a facility to visit. We are committed to our dogs before, during, and after adoption! The rescue retains title to the dog and can never be released or sold. Should the adopters no longer be able to keep the 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 caring for their Golden in a way we see fit. Adopters then have to agree to follow up visits as needed.
