    Ollie

    Breed: Golden Retriever
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Golden Retriever (medium coat). Age: 2 years...Our boy Ollie has been in rescue a while, so if his adorable face seems familiar, it is because he has been posted, adopted, returned, posted, then placed on hiatus while we worked through behaviors exacerbated by so many transitions.Ollie is a beautiful, smart, energetic two year old golden retriever who, for the majority of his life, has been allowed to do whatever he pleased. His resource guarding behaviors are the reason for so many transitions. Recently, Ollie has spent significant time in training, learning the rules and is now ready for a foster home. This posting is screening for both a foster/and or an adoptive home depending on the level of inquiry.Ollie has a lot of energy. He needs an active family (or person) who will make sure he gets a lot of exercise. Currently, Ollie benefits from daily training but also is run through an agility course. It keeps his mind and body active and burns that excess energy. A large backyard and a good throwing arm would be a great supplement to his daily routine.Routine and rules, that is the key to Ollie’s success. He is a happy-go-lucky pup but boundaries must be established (through consistent training) to keep him in the zone. He is housebroken and crate trained.In Ollie’s previous foster home, he tended to counter surf and sometimes steal pillows or socks of which he became possessive, as well as random spaces. None of this we have been able to replicate because of his current environment. This is where working with a trainer, with the support of SCGRR, is integral to his success. He has been with a trainer for six weeks so has a solid training base.Since he has spent so much time with us, we have learned that Ollie is good with other dogs although he will not share toys. He has spent time at the park and beach chasing the ball and has been absolutely great. Only when the level of excitement gets to high is it a trigger and things will turn. The key is to moderate his play with other dogs. While with the trainer, Ollie has not been introduced to the pack and allowed free play. Strategies to incorporate play into his routine must be worked through with a trainer for his level of success to continue.Although Ollie has been in foster care with a self-assured dog, we are looking for a home where he will be the only dog. It will make his transition smoother and allow his people to focus just on Ollie. As mentioned before, this does not eliminate play dates…just be mindful when he is around other dogs.Ollie needs an adult only home, preferably experienced/familiar with resource guarding behaviors. Willingness to continue working with a trainer through his transition into his new home is a must, and continually as needed. Training is a great bonding experience for both pet owners and their pups.Ollie is a great dog and has the potential to be the will be the perfect companion. If you think Ollie is a good fit for you, email cisco.7587yahoo with a bit of background on yourself, lifestyle, dog experience, and the life you plan to share with this sweet pup. As stated before, he comes with a solid training base. He is just looking for someone committed to his success and you will receive lots of love, tail wags, and puppy kisses in return. cisco.7587yahoo If you have already had a home interview and are interested in meeting, please email at cisco.7587yahoo.

    rescue
    Breed: Golden Retriever
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Golden Retriever (long coat). Age: 3 years...Jambo was found as a stray and landed in the shelter with a variety of viruses in his system and a bad case of pneumonia. He is a gorgeous pure bred young golden that adores people, belly rubs and snuggles. He has a ton of energy now that he is feeling better. He would do best with an experienced dog family in a quiet neighborhood with access to a yard and no kids or other pets. One of the family members should be home quite a bit as he is very Velcro. Physical strength is also important as he pulls and lunges on leash at the moment.Jambo was dealt a tough hand in life. He has an auto immune condition called Masticatory Muscle Myositis where antibodies attack the muscles in his head and jaw. It gives him a cute and distinctive look with his temporal lobes a bit sunken in. It is a condition that will need to be managed for his life with steroids and other therapies. SCGRR will be working with his adopter to initiate his therapy.Jambo still needs quite a bit of training as a young pup from the streets. He counter surfs, is possessive about his food, pulls on leash, has NO idea how to meet other dogs. He also has exhibited some anxiety but his crate is a safe and calm place that gives him some relief – especially at night or when his people are away. As long as he has his crate in those instances, he sleeps like a baby.If you are a patient and experienced pup owner willing to work with SCGRR to give Jambo what he needs, have completed your application and home visit with SCGRR, please contact Nedra at nedrawagz1gmail nedrawagz1gmail If you have already had a home interview and are interested in meeting, please email at nedrawagz1gmail .

    Bugzy

    rescue
    Breed: Golden Retriever-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Golden Retriever / Spaniel / Mixed (medium coat). Bugzy is a cute spaniel retriever mix that looks like a mini Golden of 32 lbs. You wouldn’t guess that he is 13-years old because he is so jaunty. He was sent to the shelter by his owner. We believe he was an outside dog based on his matted coat. He was surrendered with two other dogs whom he apparently lived with but doesn’t seem to miss. He is not a real cuddler but he enjoys the company of his humans and is playful. Bugzy loves his walks and does well on the leash. He prances along looking like everything is new to him in his new environment. He looks at birds but does not chase them. He has quite a social interest in Kitty, the neighborhood cat. Bugzy was likely not walked much in his prior life and still doesn’t know what to do when he sees another dog – usually barking and growling to seem scary. He redirects quickly. He was introduced to his foster mom’s friend, Rose, and her two poodles, and after an initial brief growl and bark greeting, he walks well with them every morning. At the shelter he was allowed in the social “play groups” and did well. He would do fine as an only dog or if with another dog – one that makes him feel unthreatened and a patient human to manage them getting to know one another. A big part of Bugzy’s life is his tennis ball. He loves to play fetch with his ball and is very, very good at it. He loves to catch the ball in mid-air, and will play the game any way his humans want to, even a slow roll across the floor. He is very clever with getting humans interested in his game. He will place the ball next to you, if you ignore it, he will pick it up and put it on your lap. He’s exceptionally bright. When play is through, all we have to say is “Game Over,” and he will usually lie down. He’s never without his ball. Bugzy loves to go for rides in the car. He jumps easily in the back seat and is a good traveler. His foster mom takes him with her on short errands, to Petco and to pick up her granddaughter after school. He’s happy to wait in the car with his foster mom until school is out. He never whines in the car, although he’ll bark occasionally when he sees other kids get too close to the car. He sleeps in the bedroom on a little bed and has done so since he came to his foster home. His foster mom takes him out at night before going to bed and then early in the morning for a quick pee before the early morning walk. Bugzy has stayed home by himself for about 3-4 hours with no issues. He makes himself comfortable on the sofa or ottoman. He is a sweet, good natured dog who appears healthy for his age. Bugzy was found to have many decayed and broken teeth when he was turned in, and had his teeth cleaned right away with multiple extractions. Sadly, it impacted his ball play short time but he is back in action! He is on a combination wet food and kibble diet. Bugzy appears to be wary of men getting too close to him. His foster dad, a calm, quiet man, has tried to pet him but Bugzy backs away. Bugzy does bring the ball to his foster Dad and initiates the fetch game with him but will not let him put the leash on to take him for a walk. With other men, he is cautious on walks but does let his foster mom stop and talk with them. She politely lets them know to just leave him be. As an older gentleman, we would like to avoid young children in his home. He does love to play fetch with his foster mom’s granddaughter who is 11 years old. He would do well in a home with women, or possibly a wife and husband who would give him space and time to get used to Dad with no expectations of cuddling. Bugzy is fairly housetrained. We recommend frequent trips outside in a new home to get his routine. He’s had only an occasional accident (urine) in the house, possibly due to not being taken outside soon enough. His foster house has a little courtyard and outside garden patio where he feels comfortable relieving himself in the garden, as well as on his neighborhood walks. If you are a mostly female household that loves tennis balls and walks, Bugzy would love to meet you. Please contact Nedra at nedrawagz1gmail. Inquiries only entertained if your application and home visit are on file with SCGRR. At 13 years of age, the minimum donation for Bugzy is $300.

    Breed: Golden Retriever-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Senior
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Golden Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Age: LB (real name Jack) came to us from the Long Beach shelter after his life-long mate was adopted, and he was left behind. AT 10 yrs old, it was unlikely he would make it out of there at all. Jack is a golden-white Sheppard mix, is sweet and wants only to be by his human’s side. Jack gets along with other clam dogs. In his recent foster home, he actually started playing with his toys, gathering them and cuddling with the stuffed toys. He also loves the couch. Jack can get along with other dogs on a walk and in the house; however, in certain setups (like on the couch) he guards his human by growling others away. There are simple protocols that we will teach his new family to follow, to help Jack know a different way to behave. LB is looking for his one and only, or maybe two. Someone who can dote on him, pet him, groom him, walk him and just generally be the companion he’s longing for. Jack has good house manners, and will wait patiently for you to come home. He will walk by other quiet dogs on the street but will bark back if they bark at him. He is great on a leash. For 10 yrs old, he is in very good shape, and stairs or wood floors are not a problem for his mobility. He’s up to day on shots and neutered and micro chipped with SCGRRescue. Please contact his representative at SCGRRescue if you’re interested in meeting Jack. loriyalemyahoo loriyalemyahoo If you have already had a home interview and are interested in meeting, please email at loriyalemyahoo .
