I have an Adoption Pending but hope you will consider one of our other great dogs.

Thank you!

Introducing Hazel!

She was found as a stray and brought to the Mobile County Shelter in AL.

Hazel is a purebred Golden Retriever, 7 years old and full of Southern charm and sweetness.

She has been with Sunshine for a couple months as she completes heartworm treatment, and we are thankful she is doing well.

Hazel is a cuddle muffin Golden who loves people.

She is house trained and well behaved in the house.

Hazel enjoys other dogs and wants to play with them, rides nicely in a car, accepts a crate easily if asked, and walks nicely on a leash.

A bit of a picky eater, she likes wet food mixed in with her dry and she is a sloppy eater! She has no mobility problems and manages 5 steps off her fosters back deck without any problem.

In many ways Hazel is like so many rescue dogs, making us suspect her previous years were not so great.

She doesnt seem to know what toys are for, appears to have had many litters of pups and her teeth are worn, indicating she probably lived outside or without much attention.

All that has changed now, and Hazel is happily staying at her fosters home as she waits for her forever family.

She has been spayed, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and will be ready to travel to her forever family in April, following completion of her heartworm treatment.

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.

If you would like to be part of Hazel's

rescue story, and you have already been approved for adoption through SGRR, please contact the Adoption Committee at CandyVS2@aol.com

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.
