Hi, I’m Available!
often get questions and comments regarding our fence policy. We require
a secure physical fence for the dogs we adopt. Many of our dogs are
Goldens that have been retired from breeding facilities. While these
dogs have been given basic care, they have not been treated as pets and
are not socialized. Their Instinct is to run and hide until they have
learned to trust and have bonded with their new family, and they have
not yet learned to relieve themselves while on leash. Others can be shy
due to their treatment before coming to rescue. Some of our dogs are
very active and love to run and play and chase balls, and they need a
safely fenced yard. We acknowledge that there are very good dog owners
that do not have fences, but we cannot pick and choose. We must have a
standard policy for the safety of the dogs. We do not like to
disappoint or upset people, but bottom line our dogs come first and we
will always err on the side of caution. That being said, there are
countless wonderful dogs that need homes, and there are many rescues
that do not have the same fence requirements.
Golden is a rescue organization based in St. Louis, Missouri. We strive
to find the best available home for each individual Golden in our
program ~ our goal is finding the Golden’s “forever home.”

|Snoop is a smart, happy, energetic puppy. He loves to play and wants to
be included in anything we are doing. He will look for attention any way
he can get it. Sometimes that means doing something naughty but he is
quickly learning the house rules and genuinely wants to please. He is
great with my two kids, he will let them snuggle him and plays with them
like they are puppies too. He does nip when he is over excited but is
easily redirected to a toy. He adores playing with my 2 year old golden
retriever who is 4 times his size. They keep each other entertained and
well exercised. He would do great in a house with another dog who
enjoys rambunctious play. He is a quick learner. He now anticipates his
daily training session and he gets so excited to train. He has mastered
sit, down, stay (for duration, still working on distance), and he comes
when he is called. He is mostly potty trained and rarely has an
accident in the house. He hates being alone and will actively try to
escape a dog gate or fence to get to you, so any enclosure must be

Cooper was surrendered to us because his family
moved to a place that only took small dogs. We were told he is
Australian Sheepdog/Black lab mix. He is 11 years old. His hips are
not the best and he takes Dasuquin. When we first got him he was very
stressed, that was end of July. The only home he knew was gone and he
was put in a foster home with other dogs which help him. Over the last
month he has adapted well.
This is what his foster mom says:
He's making improvements every day! 💕
he is playing with the other dogs-except his back legs or hips give out
and he slips. So then he will bark, but he's happy!! He didn't bark at
first, but my dog taught him that bad habit. I've switched his food to
Purina one joint health. He didn't like any healthy treats at first. Now
he's in with the pack! We keep him in his thunder shirt from time to
time because he pants a lot due to anxiety. He doesn't chew on anything
inappropriately and is completely potty trained. So the anxiety is
really just panting and excited barking when I get home. He took treats
from little neighbors well, although he is working on being more

LOVE A GOLDEN RESCUE
EMERGENCY MEDICAL DOGS
|Due to the COVID-19 virus ALL of
Love a Golden's 2020 fund-raisers,
which usually fully fund all our rescues in need of medical care, have
been cancelled. The dogs below have surgeries or other medical
needs that are very expensive. Since we cannot fund-raise in our
usual way, they DESPARATELY need FOSTER
BUDDIES to help with the expense. It will be quite some
time before they are ready for adoption.
|Gretchen is a very sweet girl, small at 50 lbs. She
was 15 months when she came to rescue from a breeder in July 2020 and
had recently had a litter of puppies. Gretchen was released from
the breeder when it was discovered she had bad hips. Her first
surgery following her rescue will be at the beginning of September; the
second surgery 10 to 12 weeks later.
Gretchen is not at all familiar with city noises, cars etc.. however
she has become comfortable in her foster home and yard but has far to
go in the big world. Each day she is excited to go on a
walk but once outside she is very wary. Her foster home counts her
success by how many houses she can walk by each day. At first it
was a matter of only feet, but as of this writing she did four
houses. This will be a very important part of her rehab so the
goal before surgery is to get her comfortable and be able to walk
around the cul de sac.
It will be a very long time
before she is ready for adoption. She will need to recover from
both the surgeries, become
comfortable with the world and trained to not be a flight risk.
