Adopt a Pet




Hi, I’m Available!


We 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.
  Love A 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.”
If you are interested in adopting one of our Goldens, we ask that you read more about our adoption procedures by clicking HERE and fill out an adoption application.
We try to keep our listing up-to-date, but some recently available dogs may not be listed yet and some listed dogs may already be adopted.

Click on the photos below to get a full size image of the dog as well as additional information and/or photos if available.



Poppy
female mix
Poppy came to us because her owner;s health was such that she could no longer look after her.  She is 3 years old and a golden mix.   She is doing well in her foster home.  Please consider giving this girl her forever home.

Pavlov
male lab mix

Pavlov has lived outside in a pen the last several years. He is anxious to get a new home where he can get all the attention. He is 10 years old, and is a lab mix.  He is now enjoying running in yard, rolling in the grass and sleeping in the house at night.

Meg
female

Meg is 7 years old, a beautiful girl. She is from a breeder and is looking for a home that is familiar with dogs from this environment. She has some quirks, but has come a long way in the last couple of months.  She would do best in a home with another Golden to show her how to be a dog. She rarely plays but follows the other dogs in her foster home. She loves toys but unfortunately chews them up she will bring a tennis ball from the yard and is very proud we let her have for a short time.  She has just started to go on walks and this is going ok as long as nothing noisy comes by.

Harper
female doodle


Harper is enjoying her new life as a retired mommy. She is 6 in June 2021  She is a happy girl and is enjoying learning new things.  She is a little shy meeting new people and going new places but with the help of her 4-legged foster brother she learned to enjoy car rides, chasing birds and squirrels, playing with toys, going for walks, and running around acting silly and crazy. (In a fun way)  She happiest when she around another dog and is more confident. She needs a home with another golden or doodle to show her the ropes and a home that has a lot of patience. She walks well on a leash, comes when called, does not get on the furniture, and hasn’t chewed anything up.  She is working on “sit” and letting her foster mom know she’s got to go potty, currently she gets restless when she needs to go outside.

IMMEDIATELY BELOW ARE
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
female
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.
