Sadie's Story...
ADOPTED 3/12/11

Meet Sadie and you will fall head-over-heels in love with this 8 year old beauty!! Her foster mom says that Sadie has the sweetest, most wonderful temperament she has ever known in an animal. She is a wonderful companion who is gentle and affectionate. Sadie has that fabulous Golden trait that requires her to always be touching some part of her person, even if it's just your foot! This sweetheart of a dog is great with kids, walks magnificently on a leash, and loves the snow. Oh, and tennis balls are one of Sadie’s a favorite things!

Sadie's previous owner must have had a difficult time parting with her when she could no longer care for her. As the result of not being able to care for Sadie properly, this girl did not receive much-needed treatment for a thyroid imbalance. Thus, she is a bit overweight and lacking in energy. Simple and inexpensive thyroid medication helps put this imbalance back in order. Sadie also needs to strengthen her back legs to help make going up stairs or walking longer distances easier for her. We are hopeful that proper care will help her gain more energy and lose the extra pounds she is carrying. Like many of us after a sedentary winter, Sadie is on a strict diet, except for the occasional piece of banana that her foster dad has discovered she adores!

Sadie's forever family will need to continue her thyroid medicine (so common in older dogs and inexpensive), supplements to help with her back legs, and her figure-friendly diet. Sadie wants more than anything to love her person(s) and be part of your life. If you have a quiet home and a big heart, please consider Sadie. She deserves the very best and will give you so much in return.

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

Sadie, 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.
