Below are some of the dogs we have available for adoption.
If you are interested in adopting a dog from our rescue, please complete an adoption application.
Kelly is a 3-to-5-year-old female lab mix. When we took Kelly in, she came with 9 puppies who have since been adopted. She was an excellent mother and now needs to find her own forever home with some loving humans to fill the void of her empty next. Kelly is a sweet and gentle girl with a playful personality. Kelly has excellent house manners but needs a home that will allow her to snuggle on the couch with her humans. She is the perfect combination of enough energy to go on hikes and runs, but she can also just chill in the house with you while you are working or hanging out. Kelly would love a family where someone is home most of the time with a lot of love to devote to her. She can be shy around other dogs but has been showing her playful side to them when she gets to go on slumber parties with other foster homes.
Joey is a Labrador Retriever who was saved from a slaughterhouse in China by Goldens Without Borders. When they went to rescue a group of Golden Retrievers from the slaughterhouse, they discovered Labradors were also there and could not leave them behind. This decision exponentially increased the costs and resources of GWB which is why they reached out to fellow dog rescue groups such as ours for assistance. Joey is one of the dogs we committed to bringing into our rescue to find him a forever home. This handsome Labrador Retriever weighs 72 lbs and is three years old. Joey’s foster family is very proud of how quickly he’s acclimated to home life and they enjoy how curious Joey is about everything. He loves to play fetch, chew on toys, and chase a large soccer sized ball around the yard; if he finds a large rock on his walk he’ll use his nose and front paws to toss it around – this is likely something he did to entertain himself when he was in China. Joey sleeps soundly through the night in his crate and loves to have his face massaged; he’s yet to show any indication that he wants a belly rub. Joey walks very well on the leash but if he finds a rock or food/trash, he will pull towards it. Joey knows the word “treat” and his favorite time of the day is breakfast, lunch, and dinner – he arrived underweight so his foster family is working on helping him gain some much-needed pounds. Joey is working on his house manners and his foster family reports his counter surfing has diminished a great deal in a short time. Joey is a big dog, but he has a soft mouth and takes treats gently. Joey loves to go for car rides and rides very well in the car. Joey needs lots of attention, he requires a bunch of activities to stimulate his mind, an active adopter who can spend time playing with him, and someone with the patience to continue to help him adjust to being a family dog inside the house. His ideal home will also need someone who is dog savvy and committed to continuing to set him up for success by doing things like keeping all food off the kitchen counter and using positive reinforcement to teach Joey the ways of the world.
Chandler is a Labrador Retriever who was saved from a slaughterhouse in China by Goldens Without Borders. When they went to rescue a group of Golden Retrievers from the slaughterhouse, they discovered Labradors were also there and could not leave them behind. This decision exponentially increased the costs and resources of GWB which is why they reached out to fellow dog rescue groups such as ours for assistance. Chandler is one of the dogs we committed to bringing into our rescue to find him a forever home. As we learn more about him, we will provide updates.
Phoebe is a Labrador Retriever who was saved from a slaughterhouse in China by Goldens Without Borders. When they went to rescue a group of Golden Retrievers from the slaughterhouse, they discovered Labradors were also there and could not leave them behind. This decision exponentially increased the costs and resources of GWB which is why they reached out to fellow dog rescue groups such as ours for assistance. Phoebe is one of the dogs we committed to bringing into our rescue to find him a forever home. Her foster family tells us she is very sweet, great on the leash and sleeps through the night. Her favorite pastimes are eating and drinking. Of course it is - she is a Labrador Retriever after all. We're looking forward to sharing more updates about Phoebe!
Lola was born on 10/28 and is a female puppy with an overall happy demeanor. She lights up and wags her puppy tail with enthusiasm when she plays with her foster brother who is a large Golden Retriever. Current pastimes include: playing with toys, chewing on stuff, exploring the backyard, running, jumping, long naps, and snuggles. Lola also enjoys giving people kisses. This Labrador Retriever mix will probably be a medium to large sized dog (50 - 80lbs). Lola is looking for a home where someone is home most of the time (even post-covid.) She also really, really wants a playmate - a medium to large breed, active, adult dog who can show her the ropes and who she can play with (along with loving humans who will spoil her and give her lots of cuddles)!
Becca - Adopted
Becca is a 3-year-old female golden who recently arrived in the US from Turkey. She's been quick to settle in and is doing great so far in her foster home. Becca has good house manners, loves to carry her woobies around and likes to lay out in the yard in the sun. She's also a fan of fetch! She'll let you know when it's meal time by taking you into the kitchen, and when it's time for walks by taking you to the front door. She's a really sweet girl and seems to love everyone one she meets. We're still learning about Becca and what she's looking for in her forever home, so check back for updates.
Tofu is a big 3 year old male Golden Retriever mix who recently arrived in the US from Turkey. He’s been great with settling in and getting acclimated in his new foster home. Tofu is potty trained, knows how to sit and loves to be a giant big lap dog when he gets tired and jumps on the couch with you. Though he is tall enough to reach the counters, he’s been very respectful of not grabbing food. He will bark a bit when new person comes into the house, but then wags his tail and wants all the loving once he realizes they’re his new best friend…and he seems to love everyone he meets. He is a very high energy dog and loves to be outside – he would run around in a big, secure backyard or go on walks all day long if he could! He’s great on leash with people and other dogs, but thinks squirrels are fun to chase. Everyone that’s met him so far, falls in love. We do know that we would like Tofu to find a home where he can swim since it is one of his favorite pastimes.
Clyde - Adoption Pending
Clyde is about a year old and he's only known life within a shelter environment with lots of other dogs. He is learning to navigate living inside a home which includes mastering the doggie door, learning television sounds are normal, and lounging on a soft bed inside an air-conditioned house. Clyde likes to play, and would love a young playmate in his forever home or another energetic dog as a companion. He’s still very much a youngster and has a bit of a learning curve ahead of him that is typical of young dogs his age.
Clyde was welcomed into our rescue on August 12th from Istanbul, Turkey. He epitomizes both what we mean by a "retriever mix" as well as what it means to be a dog in need of rescue. As a puppy Clyde was super adorable and had a happy tail wag. Despite this, his chances of being adopted in Turkey were slim as there are already many purebred dogs that will likely never find homes and he's past the "cute and small" puppy age now. Overall, Clyde has a very, very, sweet demeanor and continues to be super adorable. He’s smart, too, and has already learned to sit when his leash is put on him. He walks very nicely on a leash and enjoys early morning hikes. If you are in the market for a young pup who is already house trained, is open to learning new lessons, energetic as a hiking partner but sweet and mellow in the home, then you need not look any further.
