Brooklyn's Story...
Adopted 4/27/13!!!

My name is Brooklyn and somehow I found myself at a shelter in AL with my sister. Oh, what a scary place those shelters are – so many dogs barking and carrying on because we just don’t understand why we are there. My sister was adopted at the shelter and SGRR came and rescued me! I am so happy to be with them because they are so kind and treat me so nicely. I especially love the lady called “Lisa” who comes to play with me, pets me, and walks me. I always remember to give her a big hug when she has to go home so she knows how much I love her and that I want her to come back soon!

Overall, I am a happy, happy girl who loves to smile and be loved. I am good with kids and with other dogs. While I love all people, I really gravitate toward men. I have an active energy level and would make a good walking buddy, but get use to turning heads when folks see me! Just watch my video so you can see for yourself just how pretty I am!

As you can see in my photos, I have a gorgeous long, chocolaty coat that I am very proud of. See what happens when you mix Chocolate with Golden – you get one delectable dog – ME! I am about 3 ½ years old and I have just been spayed. I am under heartworm treatment right now because my first owners did not take very good care of me. I am doing okay though and should be ready to go to my new home in mid-to-late April!

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

Brooklyn, a Cheshire Labrador Retriever/Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Golden Retriever for sale in Cheshire, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Cheshire.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cheshire 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 Cheshire 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 Labrador Retriever/Golden Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Golden Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cheshire paves the way for another one to be saved.
