Gunner is a sweet 6 year old special needs boy. Gunner has severe allergies, but is on medication for them and is much improved. Because his allergy treatments are quite expensive, Grateful Goldens is looking for a permanent foster home for him with the potential to adopt him when his allergies are under control. Grateful Goldens will continue to pay for these treatments. Gunner will do best as an only dog and a home with someone home all day would be a plus.  

Gunner is being fostered in the Charleston area.
Chad is sweet, friendly and active 1½ year old boy. He walks fairly well on a lead, and just finished his basic obedience training so he knows his basic commands.  He's smart, learns very quickly, and loves to play.  If you're looking for a great companion, who can keep up with your physical activities or occasionally lie around the house with you and cuddle, look no further.  He's with several other dogs in his foster home but is not good with cats.  He sleeps in a crate at night, is housebroken, HW Negative, neutered and up to date on shots.

Chad is being fostered in the Florence area.
Missy is a sweet 3 year old girl who lived all of her life at the end of a chain until a kind dog lover rescued her and contacted Grateful Goldens. Missy is quickly learning to love the golden life, is housebroken and crate trained. She loves attention and wants to be at your side at all times. She loves walks and riding in the car. Missy still finds a lot of her new world overwhelming, but being very curious, she is adapting well. Missy needs a family who will continue to gently introduce her to the outside world. 
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.

Sunflower's owner passed away and left her alone. Grateful Goldens was contacted and could not say no to those sad brown eyes. Sunflower is a sweet 10 year old golden girl who adores sitting on the sofa with a human or another dog. She doesn't quite understand 'play time' but gets a little excited and dances when one of her foster siblings gives her a play bow. She's not quite a couch potato as she adores chasing squirrels which is a lot easier for her now that she's on pain medication and supplements to help ease her arthritis in both back legs. She does like to look out doors and windows and announce when she spies something. Sunflower is not a fan of thunderstorms but as long as she gets to her safe spot, she tolerates them. She is best suited for an older couple, a nice yard and a mature dog companion. Sunflower is up to date on her shots, spayed and adorable.  

Sunflower is currently being fostered in the Florence area.


Big BOY is your first thought when meeting 3 year-old Doug! Exuberant is the first word that you say when he stands up and hugs you. This sweet boy who was found as a stray and the shelter called us as he is Heartworm Positive. Doug is a sweet golden mix boy, very happy to be in a home with a big yard so he can release some of his puppy energy. He is too full of life to be in a home with small children or senior dogs as he does not realize his size or strength. He is now up to date on shots, neutered and will start his Heartworm treatment soon.

Doug is currently being fostered in the Charleston area.

Shiloh is a sweet gentleman of 6 years who was reluctantly given up by his family due to his experiencing seizures. Shiloh is currently on medication for them and has responded very well. He has charming house manners, adores being with humans and other dogs but might forsake you all if he has a soft dog bed to lie on. He has a little grumble when he says hello and will bark if another dog gets in between him a a pair of hands giving pets. Shiloh is now up to date on all his shots and ready to be your next buddy
Rocky is a big, beautiful 6 year old who is very happy to be with GGRLC. Given away numerous times before being kenneled in a yard, he is welcoming being a house dog. Rocky is in a home with other dogs and gets along with everyone. He does like to talk, though, so apartment or condo life is not for him. He is learning to walk on lead but will still require time to get it down. Rocky is up to date on his shots and ready to go!
Shiloh Has His Furever Home!!

Red is the perfect family golden. At age 5, he was turned back into GGR when his family could no longer keep him. He is perfect hugging height, a terrific car rider and fabulous with children but still has plenty of energy to entertain the new parents. He is good with other pets, too. Red is up to date on his shots, Heartworm Negative and ready to settle into your home. He is being fostered in the Charleston area.

Tripp is a handsome, 4 year old Golden who recently came into Rescue and has settled in well at his foster home. He enjoys playing with the other dogs in the household, laying on a dog bed, sitting on the sofa and sleeping
in bed with the humans! He knows his basic commands, is housebroken and walks on leash. Tripp was shaved for the summer as he was in rural SC but his fur is long and luxurious when he is grown out.

He will be going in to be vetted soon as his shots will be due but he is already neutered. We will be looking for a home with a fenced yard, another dog possibly and active adults to keep him in shape as he can loose a few pounds.

Tripp is currently being fostered in the Florence area.
