Rescue Group: Sunshine Golden Retriever Rescue
|Size:||Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)||Sex:||Male|
Often, children or adults may think they are ready for the responsibility of a pet, only to find that they don’t have the time and energy to be good puppy owners. The parents purchased Teddy from a pet store as a gift for their teenager daughter. Their circumstances suddenly changed and now the family needs to move. And thus, Teddy also now finds himself in need of a FOREVER home.
Teddy is a beautiful blonde Golden boy who is 5 months old. Teddy likes to fetch tennis balls and he enjoyed hanging out on the deck with his canine sibling. He also likes to play chase with his former family’s cat, so potential adopters with cats surely need to have dog-savvy kitties! Teddy is nearly fully house-trained. He is OK on a leash but did not get many walks in his former home. He rides nicely in the car and is just an overall sweet Golden pup. His joyful expression can light up a room!
Teddy needs a home where his new owners are home most of the day. He is a young dog who is on his way to becoming a wonderful forever friend! If you understand puppies, please apply for this bundle of innocent puppy love. Like all puppies, Teddy just needs someone with patience, time, and good humor to help him grow to his potential.
SGRR Note: Young dogs require a great deal of time, attention and patience. We can only consider applications from folks who are home most of the day.

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.
