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.

Barney
male Doodle

After a rough start, Barney the Golden doodle, born on 1/8/2022, is a happy-go-lucky puppy.  He has learned to like humans and the resident dogs in his foster home.  The cats find him obnoxious, so there's more work to be done there. He was a good boy with the vet and the groomer.   He has learned to use the doggy door, so is potty trained to that.  He comes when called as long as you shake the container of treats. He is crate trained. He is calmed down and relaxed enough that he can start learning basic commands, which should go quickly.

Vinny
male mix


The best puppy ever”, is how Vinny’s foster mom describes him.  He is 20 lbs. at about 3 ˝ months and will be a very big boy according to the vet.  We have his DNA results, it turns out he is a mixture of 16 breeds a true mix breed dog.  His breeds cover all the different types with bully breed being the most prevalent.  He is calm, happy and friendly.  He is well behaved and a fast learner.  He comes when called and sits most of the time when asked.  He will be a stellar student in obedience class.  He rides well in the car. He happily gets in his crate at night, chews on his toys and never says a word all night long.  He could be a good therapy dog with his calm nature once he is an adult. He loves playing with the resident dogs and tolerates the cats well, although he is curious about them.

Cooper
male mix


Cooper is an active and spry senior dog.  His coloring and build suggest an Australian Shepherd and Black Lab mix, with the unique blue eye/brown eye combination.  He is very attentive and curious, and enjoys being near his owner.  He is quick to learn new routines and sleeps well through the night.  While his hips give him occasional trouble, he is happy to run with the other dogs in our pack in the yard and gets up and down stairs fine.  He would do well as a solo dog or with another dog in the house, once acclimated.

IMMEDIATELY BELOW ARE
LOVE A GOLDEN RESCUE
EMERGENCY MEDICAL DOGS
Due to the COVID-19 virus ALL of Love a Golden's 2020 in-person 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.
