George is a handsome 1-2 year old boy who we believe to be a Golden/Lab mix.

He somehow found himself in a scary situation at the Animal Control Center in Atmore, AL. He was at the shelter for 2 months - how depressing that must have been!

The shelter director knew who had owned George previously and hoped they would come for him.

But they never did.

He believes there was an illness in the family and they were no longer able to care for George.

That may have been George's lucky day though as our rescue will make sure George becomes a beloved companion and finds the right home.

George is good with other dogs and LOVES to play with them.

He is a young dog with age-appropriate energy.

His plush coat is the most stunning shade of golden and his eyes are a beautiful amber color.

Trust us when we say his photos do not do justice to how gorgeous this fellow is in person!

George is a shy boy who does not have a lot of socialization.

When we first brought George into the rescue, he was very leery about having a slip lead put around his neck for walks.

It was as though he had no idea that a walk was a good thing.

He is becoming more comfortable with the slip lead and taking walks now.

George can be timid, especially when there is more than one person in the room with him or in his kennel.

While only one human is around, he is more confident.

We are seeking a quiet, adult-only home for George; a home where his humans will be patient with him and help him gain confidence.

It breaks our hearts to think of the sad kind of life this boy must have lived but that life is behind him now.

If you think that you could provide this type of home for George and you are approved to adopt through SGRR, we would be happy to consider you for his adoption!

He has a reservation to come north on 3/24/18.

George has been brought up-to-date on his vaccinations, is neutered, heartworm negative, and is micro-chipped.

He will be arriving to be directly adopted in the northeast on March 24th.

Rescued dogs come with a range of needs - from behavioral to emotional to medical.

When approved applicants adopt such dogs, they agree to continue the rehabilitation we have begun.

About Our Rescue

Before being approved to adopt, all potential adopters will be required 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 indicate that this dog is not the right match for your family.

We are frequently getting new Goldens in need of a home, so we encourage you to apply and complete the application process so that when the right dog comes along you will be ready.

The information provided on each dog is based on the 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 behave and adapt in your home.

**Please note:

The fees listed represent a slight increase and are effective for applications received after June 1 2014.

We regret the need to increase the fees for our dogs, but found it necessary due to the increased costs we are faced with for each dog's care and placement.

A contract is signed on the day of adoption.

Under the terms of the contract, all adopters are required to bring their SGRR dog to a vet within 7 business days.

All dogs receive basic veterinary care prior to adoption.

However, if an adopter's vet identifies an illness that an adopter is not willing to treat, then the dog may be returned and a full refund would be provided.

Most of our dogs are fostered in private homes.

We do not have a facility to visit.

We are committed to our dogs before, during, and after adoption! To this end, the rescue retains an interest in each dog and our dogs can never be surrendered, re-homed, or sold. Should an adopter no longer be able to keep their SGRR 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 providing proper care.

Adopters agree to follow up visits as needed.

Please be a ray of light for this Sunshine dog and make a tax deductible donation toward medical care and other expenses.

Every cent of your generosity goes directly toward the care of a Sunshine dog.
