Rosie is a sweet girl who is looking for a forever home. She is a VERY well behaved girl who has been trained by a loving family. Unfortunately, like so many of our dogs, she was displaced by a move. Rosie has settled into her foster home with very little adjustment needed. She loves the resident dogs and cats. She absolutely loves people too. It doesn't matter whether she is greeting a person or animal, her tail never stops wagging. She is about 10-15 lbs. overweight, so her foster mom is working on slimming her down. She would fit into any household as she can be active, loves to play fetch and run at the park, but yet settles down when needed. She is the most well behaved foster that I have had. Don't let her age fool you, this is one young at heart girl. She has free roam of the house and only had an accident when her foster mom was gone from the house for 10 hrs. Her limit to being inside without a potty break would probably be 8-9 hours at most.

Biography
Update: Since little sister, Ginger, left for her forever home, Mya has grown into a confident, loving puppy. She's now a bit over 4 months old. Mya is high energy and really needs an active family that will happily walk her a couple of times a day. Mya weighs in at 37lbs now. Mya, a bit more shy around people than her little sister, has grown to 15 pounds at 10 weeks old. Mya is inquisitive, and will wander off or climb into places she shouldn't. Mya will need a yard with at least a 4ft fence and no objects that can be used as a ladder, or she'll escape. She loves snuggling on blankets and romping with her foster brothers, so she doesn't really want to escape...she just wants to follow her curiosity. Mya doesn't quite understand the notion of housetraining yet. She will run from her crate towards the backdoor, but if distracted by anything, she will stop to potty whereever she is. But that's okay. At 10 weeks old, its rare for a golden retriever to be housetrained. Mya is slower than Ginger at figuring stuff out. Using a child gate to keep the pups in the kitchen, Ginger will run around the house and go through an open door to bypass the gate, but Mya will just stop at the gate and cry. More pictures coming soon. Mya loves to chew. She will chew on anything, but her favorites are rawhide (good for the teething) and her stuffed toys. She will squeak the squeaker intentionally for a dozen minutes in a row before switching to another toy.

She will resist and cry every once in a while when trying to get her to walk on a leash, but she'll relent and run happily by your side. Ginger is more intelligent that Mya.

Chance would probably do best as an only dog so he doesn't have to share his family's love and attention. He gets along with other dogs, but he wants to be the dominant dog in the household. Chance is housebroken and has free run of his foster home most of the time. He absolutely loves water and would jump at the opportunity to go for a swim. Chance has been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and takes medication to control this auto-immune disorder. His medications are not expensive, but Chance will need them permanently to prevent flareups of this disease. He also needs to stay on a hypo-allergenic food that does not contain grain. Chance has spent much of his life tethered in his previous owner's back yard with no shelter and an empty water bowl. He was picked up by animal control too many times for running loose, so the shelter called GGRR. This sweet boy is looking for a "chance" to be an inside dog with a loving family who is willing to monitor his IBS.

In addition to what has already been posted we are pleased to add that he is not a counter surfer nor does he chew on anything other than dog toys. Much to our dismay, he does like to pull flowers out of their pots outside. He has appointed his self as the official watchdog in the house by barking at everyone and everything that nears our home. Even a drifting leaf! He's not fond of the crate so convincing him to get in is "fun". We discovered that a Kong with peanut butter usually does the trick. He's very happy to see us when we get home - time to play, play, play!

Hunter   (Went to Forever Home in 2009)


How do those other dogs get up there?
Biography
Hunter is a sweetheart. He loves to cuddle; he loves to play; he loves his life. Hunter would be perfect for a family with kids and at least one more dog. Hunter has one bad habit. Although he will go into his crate easily when he's tired, he will bark and whine and cry for hours if he's not. As he gets older, he will probably outgrow this, but in the meantime he's perfectly happy telling the neighbors that he's locked up. But when he's out of his crate, and laying on your lap, you forget all of that.

Blitz   (Went to Forever Home in 2008)

Biography
Blitz is a 6-1/2 year old male, who has been through some rough times over the past few months. His beloved owner had to be placed in a nursing home. Blitz's 14 year old canine companion was euthanized due to bad hips that made it too painful for him to walk. Blitz's weight ballooned to 130 lbs., and he had to be totally shaved because his coat was so matted. Blitz seems to have recovered from these traumas and is once again a happy-go-lucky Golden boy. He is now 18 lbs. lighter and his coat is growing in nicely. It would be ideal if his adoptive family would help Blitz drop another 25 lbs. It's an easy diet, and cheap, too! He eats 3/4 cup of dog food with a handful of frozen green beans tossed in twice daily--no extra treats, please! Blitz loves to swim and go for walks. He likes to fetch tennis balls and chew on nylabones. He is great with children of all ages, knows basic commands, likes to shake your hand, and will give kisses. He gets along well with the other Goldens in his foster home and would probably get along with another mellow dog. However, a home with cats would be out of the question--Blitz detests them! This affectionate boy would make a wonderful companion for a family who can provide him with plenty of love and attention.
