Cadbury's Story...
Adopted 4/26/14!!!

"Well, hello, everyone... My name is Cadbury and I beg your forgiveness if I am talking in a low voice, but I am a little bit on the shy side. Come a little closer and I will tell you all I know about myself. I am 18-24 months old and I somehow found myself in a shelter in Baldwin County, AL. We dogs are so puzzled about how this “stray” thing happens. One day we’re someone’s dog and the next thing you know, we’re alone and scared. Thankfully, I was picked up by animal control and they called SGRR who rescued me!

Let me be a bit upfront about something here –ummm, my name… “Cadbury”… well, it was given to me by the kind folks at the shelter. They were all so nice to me and I didn’t want to hurt their feelings, but… “Cadbury….??” Did they think I wanted to audition to be the Cadbury Bunny??? I hear people say that I am very handsome, a real looker, and very sweet – I think these are all good things! Right? The rescue people think I am a purebred Golden Retriever who just needs some good food so my fur will grow in nicely. I am on the smaller side for a Golden boy, about 45 pounds. My eyes are a warm brown and I heard this nice lady say that their sweetness melted her heart.

When I meet you, I am shy at first, but I am so ready to fall in love again and I hope to find an owner who will love me for who I am. The more I get to know my humans, the more comfortable I become around them. I cherish their affection and their kindness, and I love how they speak to me with gentle tones. I am also good with cats and I like the company of calmer dogs. I walk pretty nicely on a leash and have a moderate energy level. A quiet home, with kind, patient, and soft-spoken humans, who are home more often than not, would be ideal for me. I would relish a home where I can be spoiled, kissed and loved. In return, I promise to be your best friend, forever!"

Cadbury is up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, and neutered. He will be ready to travel north to his forever home in mid-to-late April.

About Our Rescue

Before being approved to adopt, all potential adopters need 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 find that this dog is not the right match for your family. We are regularly getting new Goldens in need of a home, so we encourage you to apply and get approved so that when the right dog comes along you will be ready.


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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cadbury, a New Canaan Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Golden Retriever for sale in New Canaan, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in New Canaan.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in New Canaan already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a New Canaan breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Golden Retriever breeders who help with Golden Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in New Canaan paves the way for another one to be saved.
