Rescue Group: Sunshine Golden Retriever Rescue
|Size:||Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)||Sex:||Male|
It is impossible not to notice what a strikingly handsome boy Oscar is as soon as you see him! This hunky fellow’s face is just so adorable. Oscar has an inquisitive, playful expression with tenderness in his eyes that will make you melt. He has the most beautiful warm chestnut-color and his coat is so cuddly soft that you will want to pet Oscar all day. You won’t find Oscar complaining about this because he loves attention. Having someone lavishing him with affection is just fine with Oscar!
Oscar is a gorgeous pure bred Golden Retriever who is about 18-24 months old. He was found as a stray in AL and SGRR rescued him from the Dothan Shelter. He is good with kids and with other dogs. Oscar has a super high energy level and his potential adopter will need to be able to provide this boy with a good amount of exercise – both physical and mental. If your weekend calls for a get-a-way to your place in the mountains, Oscar will be ready to be at your side exploring new trails, enjoying nature – simply enjoying life.
Will you be ready to open your heart and home to Oscar and show him what it’s like to be a treasured companion? He surely hopes so!

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.
