Daisy is a sweet 3 year old girl whose mother was a golden and came to Grateful Goldens Rescue when she was pregnant. Daisy was adopted by a family who loved her and worked to give her a wonderful life. Unfortunately, Daisy was on the shy side so an active family did not suit her. The family asked that we bring her back into rescue and find a home better suited to her personality. Daisy has good house manners, is crate trained and loves to go on walks. A calm home with another dog would be great for Daisy.

Dakota found herself at a Georgia animal shelter, surrendered because of separation anxiety. Fortunately, a GGRLC representative was told about her situation and she was able to join our Rescue. She is in a great foster home where she has not exhibited any signs of separation anxiety. She does adore attention and companionship. 

Dakota is a potentially beautiful (she has been shaved and her coat is not yet grown back) and an appropriately active 7 year old. She has been spayed, is up to date on all her shots and fully housebroken. 

Dakota is currently being fostered in the southern Georgia area.

Recently, a Georgia shelter sent a plea to rescues to assist in getting this gorgeous red boy into the safety of a rescue group. Our incredible volunteers responded immediately to bring him to Grateful Goldens Rescue. It seems the owner had left Bailey and two other dogs at the shelter in favor of getting some new puppies. Imagine poor Bailey’s confusion and sadness to suddenly find himself in a shelter. As is customary, we took him to our vet for a wellness check-up. Unfortunately, he did test positive for heartworms but is now current on all vaccines and is neutered. This “big boy”, at 95 pounds, has a sweet disposition and is now adjusting to all the unexpected changes in his life.

He is in a foster home in the Charleston area to be evaluated for his heartworm treatment. We hope it won’t be too long before 6-8 year-old Bailey will be in a new forever home.
What a unique combination! Cole is a beautiful mix of two great breeds - Great Pyrenees and Golden Retriever. Still a young boy, this New Year’s Day puppy, will soon be two. He came to us from a rural Georgia goat farm to life as a Grateful Golden foster dog and is steadily adjusting to the comforts of life in a home and a city. He may do best in a quiet home with a family that will continue his gentle exposure to new things/situations, can provide him with training and an exercise routine such as multiple daily walks or runs. He will adjust faster with another dog in the home to keep showing him the ropes of being an inside pet. As Cole is an accomplished fence climber, he is currently on leash whenever he is outside - but he’s great on leash. Cole is housebroken, up to date on all his shots, neutered, HW negative, and on monthly HW and Flea/tick preventative.

He is being fostered in Florence and keeps busy with his new job of patrolling the neighborhood.

Hard to imagine that Finn was picked up as a stray and no one came looking for him. So, when we saw this handsome Golden mix at an overcrowded shelter, we knew he had to be rescued right away. From the moment our volunteer went to meet him, he let her know that he was a real lover as well! Wanting to have him checked out right away, Finn was taken directly to the vet where he received vaccines and a heartworm test. Although he did test positive, he has just started his treatment and we expect him to be fine. As you can see, Finn has a beautiful, deep red coat and looks like a big teddy bear. Add that to his loving personality, and it seems we have another foster who cannot “bear” to let him go. 
Already dubbed “Sugar Face”, Sandy was turned in to Grateful Golden’s when her family was moving. Unable to take her with them, we are so happy they turned to us. The good news is that Sandy has quickly settled into her foster home, playing with her 2 ½ year old foster brother while her foster Mom and Dad are at work. Sandy adores everyone and everything and was a hit at the recent Park Day at Daniel Island. She is a perfect lady, up to date on all shots and is on monthly HW and Flea/tick preventative. Sandy is a very young acting 7 year-old, so she will be best with with a family who is active outdoors as she has energy to spare, although we have to say - sweet Sandy adores snuggling too!

She is currently in the Charleston area and is ready to meet her new family!!
Take a look at this happy face! Piper is a very sweet girl who was surrendered due to a change in her family's lifestyle making it impossible for them to keep her. She is in good health, although she does have some hip and knee issues. Possibly they are due to some knee injuries that were not addressed, but Piper has learned to compensate for them. She is good with other dogs and children and loves attention! Although Piper is 10 years old, she is quite active, so she would love a family that is active and would take her on adventures. Piper is being fostered in the Charleston area.

You can see by both photos that Piper is quite content in her foster home - and no surprise - her foster family adores her. So much so - that they have an Adoption Pending on this pretty girl!

Imagine having a family for seven years, and then in an instant, you’re in a cage. That’s what happened to Charlie. But the good news is that 2018 is starting off much better for this dapper fellow! We are grateful to a worked at a Georgia shelter who called us, so we could rescue this sweet gentleman. Charlie’s foster family says he has so much going for him. He has terrific house manners, gets along with everyone, and as you can see - is very handsome! He has been brought up to date on his shots, is neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventatives. 

  Charlie is currently being fostered in the Charleston area.

Take a look at this this handsome young Golden. Bobo is a high energy 8 month old boy. But sadly, being a puppy didn’t help him keep his home. Just before the holidays Bobo’s family took him to a shelter and suddenly Bobo was homeless. Lucky for him, we were called and promptly went to rescue him. And thanks for our great volunteers, Bobo spent Christmas in a home instead of a cage. Today he is living in a foster home with some older dogs, and learning some grown-up manners. As a growing puppy, Bobo would do best in an active home with another dog for a pal. Bobo is cute as can be and he knows it – in other words – adorable! He is up to date on all his shots, neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventive. In other words, he is good to go and is anxiously awaiting a new loving home – this one forever!
Looking at this sugar faced lady – it’s hard to believe she was picked up as a stray and no one came looking for her. But there she was – in a scary, noisy shelter. As soon as we heard about her, GGR was swift to get her out of the shelter and into a foster home. Blondie is an angel in many ways. She adores humans, loves walks and perhaps her favorite pastime - to cuddle! She is more interested in being with the family than playing with toys or out in the yard. The shelter thought she had had a litter of puppies and was around three, but our vet thinks she may be a little older. Already a beauty, with a high-quality diet and care, her coat and feathers should grow back, and she will be a 10+! Blondie is spayed, heartworm negative and up to date on all vaccines. Because she bonds so to humans, she needs a home without other pets and with dog savvy humans, as she is a strong Alpha. Blondie is waiting for her new forever family- a family who will love her as much as she will love them – that’s her promise!
