This stunning red-head has a pretty coat that is extremely soft, with a contrasting white blaze on her chest. Myia weighs about 55 lbs and is heartworm negative. She has been spayed, brought UTD on vaccinations, and micro-chipped. She has been with children, ages 5-7, and enjoys running and playing fetch with them. Myia does enjoy playing with other dogs so opportunities for doggie playdates would be welcome. Myia is trust-worthy in the home and is fully house-broken. She needs some work on her leash skills and does best on the gentle leader. She rides fairly well in the car, but she does like to be a front-seat co-pilot. She is very good at coming when called, both inside and out, and is a true cuddle-bug! Her family shared, "We renamed Myia "Garnet" because of her beautiful deep red coat and she responds very well when called. She is the prettiest, most regal dog I have ever seen. She is a sweet girl who loves a lot of attention and belly rubs. She also loves cuddling up in a little ball either on her bed or yours! She is smart but a bit stubborn so she really needs strong leadership and structure. Her most favorite thing to do is going for long walks several times a day. She does not walk well on a martingale, but does very well with a backpack on and a gentle leader. She also loves to run in the yard and chase the birds, squirrels and rabbits. She plays nicely with the big dogs, but does not realize her own strength when playing with small dogs. She is awesome in her crate whenever needed and you do not hear a peep from her. Riding in the car has improved tremendously and she likes going for a ride. If given the opportunity she will try to get in the front, so a harness is recommended for her. She knows sit, down and wait and will do anything for a treat. She is very motivated by food. She loves my husband and follows him everywhere. He brings her with him all the time and she enjoys it. She is really a wonderful dog that deserves a happy life!"
Myia is very intelligent, loving, loyal, and beautiful! If you are interested in giving Myia the guidance and structure she needs to be her happiest, you will be rewarded with an amazing, spirited dog companion.

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.
