Golden Retriever Adoption and rescue

 
 

Bella - Female, 5 years old

Bella - she's new to rescue, having spent her entire 5 years in the puppy mill. She's hoping to find her new home soon. She'll enjoy any attention that you give her and, as is typical for Goldens, she's eager to learn and please. She gets along with dogs and cats and especially loves people. Another dog and a fence are a must.

If you'd like to seriously consider Bella, please fill out our online adoption application.

Ginger - Female, 6 years old

Ginger - she's a cute 6-year-old gal from a puppy mill. These mill dogs don't have much we can include in their initial posting such as this, but what we do know about our mill mamas is that all are very sweet and mostly shy. With a little TLC, they come out of their shells and become awesome family members. Ginger is no exception. She loves people, other dogs, and cats.

Jennifer- Female, 2 years old

Jennifer - doesn't she look sad? It's no wonder. She doesn't realize that she's not at the puppy mill any longer. As soon as she found out she was a Golden Treasure, she got a golden smile on her face. Just under 2 years old, she'll be a great new family member, seeing as she loves people, dogs and even cats. She'll be looking for a home with another dog and a conventional fence.

If you'd like to seriously consider Jennifer, please fill out our online adoption application.

Maxine- Female, 7 months old

Maxine - she's one of the luckier ones because she got out of the mill in 7 months. She's pretty much a clean slate, waiting for someone to love her and teach her what a normal life with a family can be like. Another dog and a fence are in her future.

If you'd like to seriously consider Maxine, please fill out our online adoption application.

Belle - Female, 1 year old

Belle - It wasn't bad enough that she was born in a puppy mill. She also has a congenital defect (renal dysplasia) which will shorten her life span. To look at her, you'd never know this 1-year-old sweetheart is going through anything. She's a ball of energy, just like any other Golden pup. There's not much we can do for her except love her. She doesn't know she's sick, so don't tell her. One thing we can do for her to make her time on earth happy is to find her the perfect home. That home will be someone who is home most of the time. Someone who will accept her as she is, love her always, and help her when her time comes. She likes other dogs, so that home will have another dog and a conventional fence.

Missy & Bud: Female 2 & Male 3 years old

 Missy and Bud - they are a new couple from a backyard breeder  who have really become attached to each other.  We would love to keep them together to make their new lives that much easier.  Missy is the blond cutie and is 2 years old.  Bud is the redhead and is 3 years old.  

    Missy loves attention, loves playing with the resident dogs in her foster home (especially wrestling), but has to be reminded every so often to slow it down.  This playing thing is new to her, so we're sure she'll get the hang of it.  

    Bud's foster describes him as confident and energetic, but calms down nicely.  He loves to play with toys and balls (he's a Golden after all).  House training is coming along nicely.  Bud does have a strong prey drive and will need some work on the leash.  Like lots of Goldens, he'll eat as much as you give him.  

A conventional fence is required.

If you'd like to seriously consider Missy & Bud, please fill out our online adoption application.

Kate- Female, 6 years old

Kate - here's another mill mama, fresh from the farm where she spent her 6 years making money for the miller. Now she's ready for a normal, loving home. She's good with kids, cats, and especially dogs. Her new home has to have another dog and a fence.

If you'd like to seriously consider Kate, please fill out our online adoption application.

Bonnie - Female, 4 months old

Bonnie - she's still a puppy at 4 months old. She was fortunate enough to get away from the puppy mill early. At this age, she's pretty much a clean slate, willing to learn the rules in exchange for some love and attention. She gets along with dogs, kids and cats. A fence and another dog are in her future.

If you'd like to seriously consider Bonnie, please fill out our online adoption application.

Joy - Female, 6 years old

Joy - her name sure fits her! According to foster mom, she's a joy to have around. She's settling in nicely and enjoying the company of the resident dogs. She'll fit in to any home, since she gets along with everyone. Another dog or two will complete her transition to a new home, as will a fence. Did I mention she's 6 years old?

If you'd like to seriously consider Joy, please fill out our online adoption application

Chloe- Female, 2 years old

Chloe - this sweet dog is our newest addition. At 2 years old, she's spent those years in a puppy mill, making money for her owners. Now that they don't need her anymore, she's happily become a Golden Treasure. She loves everybody and everything, including kids, cats and especially other dogs. She's looking forward to a new life with a family who loves her. As with all of our mill dogs, she requires another confident dog in the home and a conventional fence.

If you'd like to seriously consider Chloe, please fill out our online adoption application.

Buddy - Male, 10 years old 

Buddy - Meet Buddy, a 10-ish fella who is looking for his forever home. His past was not a good one. He lived outside, chained to a dog house. Even with his sad past, he loves everyone he meets and seeks out attention. He's being fostered with 3 other dogs, gets along well and even initiates play. He'll appreciate the meds he gets for his arthritis, which improves his quality of life. Because he's not used to the house, he does get a little anxious, but we've found that a nice walk helps with that. The best fit for Buddy would be a home with another playful dog, a fence and someone who will see that he gets his meds. He's a survivor who deserves a safe and loving home.

If you'd like to seriously consider Buddy, please fill out our online adoption application.

Sadie - Female, 2 years old

Sadie - this mill mama is on the high end of frightened right now.  Most mill dogs are and they eventually come around, with lots of TLC.  She's going to take a bit longer to transition to normal living, and will be a bigger-than-usual flight risk.  Her new home has to be one that keeps her safety in the forefront.  She's 2 years old and is good with everyone once she settles.  Another dog or two and absolutely a conventional fence is in her future.

UPDATE: Sadie continues to make great strides in her foster home.  She’s housebroken, crate trained and loves other dogs.  She instigates play.  Share toys. Loves to be brushed and gives butterfly kisses.

She is ready to start the next chapter of her life to be able to continue to thrive with a patient and loving family or individual and canine companion.

Layla (the golden) and Kaia (the German shepherd) are best buddies. They are in need of a home together because their owner lost her job during COVID and can't take care of them properly. They have been bounced around, and the home they are in now with a friend is selling soon and the girls have no where to go. They are currently in the Columbus area.

Layla has been adopted, but if you are interested in adopting Kaia and want more information, contact www.dogshope.com.
