It Takes Dozens of Volunteers to Keep
GRRSN has no paid staff. Everything we do to help homeless Goldens is done by volunteers. Some of our volunteers spend several hours a day and others much less. Your contribution makes a difference in a dog's life.....
If you are available to volunteer, please contact email@example.com . Home Visit and Transport Volunteers are needed.
Thank you, we know your time is valuable.

Ginger is precious. She doesn't leave me out of her sight and now sleeps on the bed with the other 2 dogs. she measures 5 feet from front leg to back leg when she stretches out. It is so funny.
My husband passed away Sept. 9th and Ginger has been such a comfort. She and I are hooked at the hip. She is much better at the park when we go. At first she was unfriendly and nervous. Now she runs around with Bailey and always makes sure she close to me. When she is ready to go home she goes to the cage door and sits.
Our main concern now is her 10lb. overweight problem. I don't know about her past, which I would like to discuss with whoever checked her in. I've had to cut back her food as she eats non stop as if she didn't get much food in her other home. She also takes bagels and bread from the table as well.
All in all I am madly in love with her, as she is with me. Everyone sees it.
If I didn't have a pool I would love to adopt the one dog that needs a home so badly. I don't move the furniture, however, our house is 2 story and would pose a problem.
As soon as I am fully recovered from my spine surgery I would love to discuss with one of you, the possibility of fostering another Golden when you need it
At the BBQ last week darling Ginger was the only one standing up on the gate barking at me to come get her. She didn't want to socialize. She wanted her "mom" Bailey was socializing even though he was a smaller dog, but not Ginger. I don't think she got any love or attention at her other home. We sure make up for it now.
Thank you, Paula Hill
Dear friends at golden retriever rescue:
We apologize for the delay in answering your letter of September 8 requesting a follow-up of our rescue golden, Brody. We have changed the spelling of his name from Brody to BRODIE.
As of this date, Brodie has settled in nicely. He is the perfect golden at home. We still have some issues with walking him on a leash but we are addressing the issue by taking him to dog training classes at Petco. We are currently in the third session and have seen some improvement. We are confident that with time and patience this issue will be resolved.
We take him to the dog park every morning where he plays fetch non-stop. He usually ignores the other dogs in the park, but is by no means anti-social. He is good with meeting and greeting new people (adults and children.) Brodie is not too fond of the smaller breeds and we are working on the command "Leave-it" so he can pass by them without incident.
All in all he is a perfect golden and a perfect fit for us.
We do have questions that perhaps you can give us answers. Was he abused while on the leash? Was he left tied up in a yard? Was he trained to attack while on a leash. His only problems are while he is on the leash, otherwise, he has no issues with other dogs or people. PETCO has asked us these questions, so if you can give us any insight into his past it would be appreciated.
Roseann and John
To my friends at the Golden Retriever Rescue Southern Nevada:
Sorry for the delay in writing this note but I wanted to respond because of our wonderful experience. I rescued Max, renamed “Dug” at the end of August last year. My children renamed him Dug after the Golden in the movie Up that says “Hi my name is Dug, I have just met you and I love you”. This is how our Duggy is, he loves everyone he meets and everyone just loves him. He is just the most loving dog I’ve ever encountered.
Having him as a new member of our family has just been great, we go for walks, play fetch at the park (great exercise for me and the kids) he is a nonstop source of fun and love in our lives from the day he arrived. He has also been such a good dog, he has never chewed anything up, he uses the dog door like a champ and always does his business outside. One time however right after we first got him he stole a whole loaf of bread off the counter and ate it all, I busted him and you should have seen the look on his face, I just couldn’t be mad at him. People who are considering adopting should know that dogs are like people, none of us are perfect and we need to forgive for their mistakes and just love them always and they will give you back unconditional love all the days of their lives. You sometimes can’t get that from people.
Me and my kids can’t thank you enough for bringing him into our lives. Thank you to Kathy Ford and all of you at the rescue who made it possible to have this new member of our family.
This is in response to your letter asking how Duke was doing. I don’t think it is newsletter material. Maybe later.
It took a couple of months for Duke to overcome his separation anxiety. It probably would have taken less time if we didn’t have a 3 week vacation 3 weeks after we adopted him. He was a very mellow fellow at first and didn’t interact with us much except when he was hungry or had leash in hand for a walk or trip. As he got more comfortable he has become less passive, and interacts with us and our other pets (a cat and a Papillion mix) just fine, making sure he gets his share of attention. We take both dogs on walks in the morning, and I brush them afterwards. My wife and I enjoy the walks ourselves and enjoy the companionship the dogs give us.
The only medical issue was that our vet (Craig Animal Hospital) found a damaged tooth when he examined him when we took him in after we got him. That wasn’t indicated on the medical records from Sun City Animal Hospital. We also got medication to treat the separation anxiety. He gets anxious and barks when there is thunder or firecrackers, so we give him the same medication then as well. I haven’t been able to train him not to pull on the leash – a trait that was noted in the evaluation you sent us. I don’t think he was trained by his previous owners. He may not have been socialized either, since he doesn’t seem to know how to play with our other pets. He was curious about the cat at first, and the cat would run and Duke would take chase, but that ended when the cat decided he didn’t need to run and they are buddies now. Duke doesn’t seem to mind it when the cat reaches up and bats his ear. He still doesn’t have much interest in playing fetch or chasing tennis balls. He does have his favorite toy, a snake, like the one his foster family got him, but is willing to share the other toys with the other dog.
Duke is a good boy and wants to please us. Our other rescue, a Papillion, is another story. We adopted her in February. She is jealous of Duke and occasionally is overly protective of items she wants to keep or whomever she is with (me or my wife), and growls, snarls, and snaps at other people. She has bitten my wife and I, so we decided to get help with behavior modification. Our daughter, Daedre Schagh, recommended “Sit Means Sit Dog Training”. I guess she knows them by reputation or perhaps because they have worked with Golden Retriever Rescue. We met with Dave Heck this morning and will start training on Monday. We decided to train both dogs. I think that will be more fun and effective.
Attached are a couple of pictures – one of both dogs trying to convince my wife they should go on a ride with her and a second one of Duke while my wife and I were on vacation and he was staying at Daedre’s house.
When I was first looking for a dog to fill the void my golden before Harley had left, I came across this wonderful website that helped me find my true best friend! When I was on this website looking for a dog, I saw Harley's picture. The first thing I noticed about Harley or "Harmoo" as I now call him, were his sweet almond eyes, that seemed to be saying "hello, best friend". After I had decided that he was the one I called his AMAZING foster parents, Louise and her husband who introduced a tennis ball to him. He now is addicted to tennis balls and I don't think he would be as happy without them. After a while with sniffing out the whole house he had adjusted. Harmoo is my true best friend, and I look forward to the many Golden years we will share!
We are so grateful to announce our new addition, Miss Roxy... she is such a loving dog that has stolen our hearts from the moment we met. We have been searching for the right dog for a while and we were blessed with the gift of Roxy. Thank you so much for all you do for these wonderful animals and for enriching our lives more with our new angel with fur... she will definitely be loved here!
Here is Sarge with his long flowing fur in the new backyard in Illinois. He hated traveling and being in the car, but he loves his new backyard to run and chase balls in.
Do you think he is happy? This is our puppy, Brandi. Luke is smitten with her. We think this might have been like it was with Leia. ❤
