Cooper's Story...
Adopted 4/18/13

Cooper is a sweet 6-1/2 year old Golden boy who is losing his home because his family cannot give him the time and attention he needs. They recently moved to smaller housing and there is a new baby on the way, in addition to the toddler he already lives with. His family knows Cooper deserves more attention and exercise than he has been receiving, so they sadly called Sunshine to ask for help finding a home that can give Cooper the attention he deserves.

Cooper is a happy, affectionate Golden. He loves to play and comes right back when he is called. He loves to ride in the back seat of a car and only pulls on a leash if he gets really excited. He has never met cats, but gets along fine with other dogs, and is really great with kids. He lets the toddler he lives with climb all over him! He is not fearful, he knows how to sit and stay, and will heal on a leash. This handsome boy is up-to-date on his vaccinations and, other than some food allergies, is in good health.

Cooper is playful, happy, and sweet, with a big Golden heart waiting to love you.

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

Cooper, a Cheshire Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Golden Retriever for sale in Cheshire, or seeking a 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 Golden Retriever breeders who help with Golden Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cheshire paves the way for another one to be saved.
