Baylee's Story...
Adopted 12/1/13!!!

Baylee will celebrate her 1st birthday on December 1st and the one gift she is really hoping for is a forever home where she is loved an adored. Baylee was purchased as a puppy for a family’s young daughter. Shortly afterwards, the family’s situation changed and they could no longer care for her properly. Baylee was being kept outside and yearned for human companionship. Knowing how lonely she was, and with the cold weather approaching fast, her former dad reached out to SGRR to find a better life for this sweet girl.

Baylee is good with other dogs and grew up with children. She has a sweet and gentle spirit and loves to be loved. Her former dad told us, “She was so cute as a puppy and would crawl up on my shoulder and sleep. “ Baylee rides nicely in the car, but could use a little work on her leash skills and her foster family is working on this with her. Baylee’s ideal home would have a yard with a fence and an active owner who can provide Baylee with adequate exercise. Her foster mom tells us that after a nice walk, Baylee settles down nicely in the house. She loves being around her foster family and their kids and is a real cuddler. “She is absolutely a love and wants to be as close to you as possible. She’s been trying to sleep between me and my husband because she likes to cuddle, but is also comfortable on her bed. Baylee loves the kids and is playful but likes to snuggle on the couch too. She is just awesome with the kids and loves our cats! She also enjoys playing with the neighbor’s dogs.” This little girl is turning into a wonderful companion under her foster’s guidance. Her foster mom adds, “Baylee has a heart-shaped white patch on her chest that is just so cute!” She wins people over quickly with her sweet, nutty charm!

Baylee is heartworm negative, spayed, and up-to-date on her vaccinations. If you have lots of love and time to dedicate to Baylee, she will repay you with a lifetime of devotion!

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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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