Current Rescues

Golden Retrievers who are currently looking for a new family to call their own are listed below. Please click on each photo to find out more about them. If you are interested in one of the dogs please ensure you complete and return the Adoption Questionnaire to Golden Retriever Rescue Inc before contacting us. It should be noted that GRR only rehomes dogs in NSW, the ACT and VIC.

** Please note that this page contains only a small number of the rescue Goldies currently in care and looking for new homes. Some of our rescues require only a minimal amount of time with a foster carer before they are assessed and ready to go to an approved family, whereas other dogs may require extensive veterinary treatment or behavioural rehabilitation depending on the circumstances from which they have come. For these reasons GRR does NOT post every rescue Goldie on this page, in fact, the VAST majority of our Goldies are rehomed to applicants already on the approved list who have been waiting for the right Goldie to come along. **

Rescue 1 (Cruz)
Eleven year old Cruz has come into GRR’s care as his owner’s ongoing health issues mean that Cruz can no longer live in the family home. Cruz is looking for a new home where he will enjoy all the love and care he received in his previous life where Cruz shared his owner’s bed, lounge and was thoroughly spoilt.
It is obvious that Cruz has been very much an inside dog and loved throughout his life and has been treated generously resulting in a very overweight lad. All Cruz wants out of life is to be by your side every moment of the day and night and should, for any reason, you go out of sight Cruz will continue to bark until you can find your way back to his side. Cruz is great around other dogs, loves people and loves to swim. He walks well on lead, travels well in the car, doesn’t dig but can bark up a storm if left alone......
Rescue 2 (Jack)
Jack was twelve and a half when he was surrendered to the RSPCA. Jack’s owner had passed away and there was no one to take on this dear old boy. The RSPCA put Jack through his veterinary check and found him in very good condition for his age so GRR was contacted in the hope that this funny old guy would be found a forever home. Since his arrival Jack has been receiving supplements for arthritis and he is moving better, although there is the occasional oops when cornering too fast and Jack loses his footing. This boy enjoys runs in the paddock, meeting other dogs and sniffing where the bunnies and foxes have been. Being a typical Goldie, Jack likes to carry his stuffy around and shove it into your hand so he can play tug. Not a great deal is known about Jack’s previous life but his foster carer states that Jack loves to be right next to you all day, every day......
Rescue 3 (Comet)
Comet has arrived into GRR’s care because of changed and difficult family circumstances. This seven month old boy’s handover was very emotional and after having Comet in care his foster carer understands just how difficult it was for Comet’s owner to hand over this very special young Golden boy.
Comet is everything a young Goldie should be. He is loving, naughty, smart and full of energy. Comet is responding well to training and knows sit, come and his special trick of shaking heads. He loves to play with other dogs and doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. Comet is house trained and crate trained and loves to dig very large holes, jump up on you and bark to get your attention.
Comet is booked in for surgery for removal of an undescended......
Rescue 4 (Harry)
Ten and a half year old Harry has come into GRR’s care when his family’s circumstances changed which meant a move overseas where Harry could not accompany his owner. This gorgeous boy has been very much loved and thoroughly spoilt. Harry will let you know when it is time for dinner and when to let him inside as this boy knows the luxury of being a full time inside boy and Harry wants that lifestyle to continue.
Harry is currently on a course of injections to ease the arthritis in his rear leg as well as daily supplements to give his joints ease of movement and these are working well with Harry running across the paddock. His previous owner advised that Harry may suffer from an upset tummy from time to time so GRR has started Harry on supplements to ease this issue and Harry is now eating a whole range of food along with his dry food and is doing well.......
