found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Legend is a delightful golden-colored boy. He is spirited, playful, and loves his human pals. His hazel-colored eyes are to die for, along with that golden fur – this is a strikingly handsome fellow!! We believe he is a Golden/Duck Tolling mix. His foster mom in AL tells us, "Legend is a ball boy and he loves to play fetch. with a mini football or baseball. He is definitely a retriever. He brings it right back to go again. He is learning to potty outside and will "go" outside as long as his human keeps up with it. We open the door to the fenced yard, he runs out, does his business, and comes right back. He eats twice a day- about a cup at each feeding, about 7:30 am and 6 pm. He knows to sit and we are teaching him not to jump on anyone for attention. Legend is very sweet and he is fine with everything - cats, other dogs, kids, just everything. He is crate trained but I only crate at night. I have kept him in the gated kitchen when out of the house for a few hours and no problems with mischief - chewing or anything. We keep our older Golden with him as a baby sitter. She wasn’t happy about it, but he was fine. LOL Legend likes to be in contact with you. He will come and sit right on your foot or right up against your leg. He just needs to be touching his human. It's very sweet how he likes to just be with you. GREAT dog!"
Whichever pup strikes your fancy, please consider that puppies require a great deal of time, attention and patience. We can only consider applications for puppies from folks who are home most of the day. Prior to adoption and traveling north to their forever families, the pups will be brought up-to-date on vaccinations and neutered.
If you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact the Adoption Committee to be considered to adopt Legend or Cajun.

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.

**Please note: The fees listed represent a slight increase and are effective for applications received after June 1 2014. We regret the need to increase the fees for our dogs, but found it necessary due to the increased costs we are faced with for each dog's care and placement.
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.
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.
Please be a ray of light for this Sunshine dog and make a tax deductible donation toward medical and other expenses. Every cent of your generosity goes directly toward the care of a Sunshine dog.
