Lucy's Story...
Adopted 2/18/13!!!

“Woof, woof, woof! My name is Lucy. I am about 4 months old and I need a forever home. SGRR rescued my mom, Eliza, who had just given birth to me and my brothers and sisters. My momma, Eliza, a beautiful golden girl, has been adopted. My brothers and sisters have all found homes too...so now it's my turn! I am crate-trained, housebroken and have learned some manners about being a good dog from my foster canine siblings. My foster mom says I am very smart and learn quickly. That's the cool thing about living in a foster home before finding my forever home - I get to learn lots of good things and get lots of love from my humans and canine buddies so when I do get adopted, I am ready to fit right in with my new family. I love people, dogs, cuddles, kisses, and to play and play, especially in the snow! They think my daddy was a Foxhound who used to come ‘a-courting my mom, but everyone says I have a true Golden personality...just like my mommy. My foster mommy will now tell you some more about what an awesome dog I am!”

Lucy’s foster mom in North Jersey says Lucy demonstrates a Golden Velcro personality and has a gorgeous golden coat that is smooth and silky. Her favorite spot in the house is the second step of the family’s kitchen. Lucy gathers all her toys on “her step” and lies there very contently on her perch. As of late, Lucy has taken to going into her open crate on her own when she is ready for a nap. Thankfully, she sleeps through the night and waits from her 9pm walk until we wake at 6am. She waits by the door and loves that breakfast comes next!

Lucy loves to try to keep up with the big dogs, and often tires them out, yet clearly understands their lessons! She has become very attached to her 2 year-old canine foster sister, Rigby and loves to play and play, and then play some more. When Rigby has had enough of Lucy’s energy, she will sit on Lucy to keep her contained! Lucy is up to date on all of her puppy shots and very soon will be able to go play at the dog park! Lucy sits well on command, knows down, give me your paw, kisses, and is learning roll over. We are still working on off, stay, and heel. She is very food motivated and a spoonful of peanut butter keeps her full attention on me. Lucy also loves toys. And her balls, Nylabones, and stuffed toys all easily replace my fingers when puppy teething makes her forget the rules about chewing on humans. She is quickly learning she can pick either to give kisses or chew a toy, but may not chew me.

Lucy is a super smart puppy! She is just waiting for her forever family to come along and take her HOME! If you understand puppies, please apply for this bundle of innocent puppy love. Like all puppies, Lucy just needs someone with patience, time, and good humor to help her grow to her potential. With continued love, exercise, play, and consistent training, she will be an incredible companion!

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.

Be a ray of light for this Sunshine dog - make a tax deductible donation toward medical and other expenses. Every cent of your generosity goes directly toward the care of a Sunshine dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lucy, a New Canaan Golden Retriever puppy 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 puppy 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.
