Chewwie's Story...
Adopted 3/26/13!!!

Chewbacca is a happy, fun, and loving Golden mix puppy who is about 4 months old! He was discarded by his former owners in a neighborhood in AL. The kind people in the area fed Chewwie and called animal control so this sweet little fellow wouldn’t be hit by a car. Chewwie is a very social boy and has never met a stranger! He is great with kids and loves all human companions, just wanting to be oh-so-close to them! Chewwie has a sweet spirit and not a mean bone in his body! He has a cuddly soft, shaggy look that just makes you want to snuggle up with him. His Foster Mom says he loves to play with other dogs and cuddle with them too. He is housebroken, but could benefit from a little time in puppy kindergarten!

SGRR promised this furry angel that he would never be roaming the streets again looking for food! He surely deserves to have a forever home and a second chance at a great life! If you are home most of the day and you understand puppies, please apply for this bundle of innocent puppy love. Chewwie is neutered, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, and ready to go HOME. Like all puppies, Chewwie just needs someone with patience, time, and good humor to help him grow to his potential.

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

Chewwie, 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.
