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 (Sally)
Four year old Sally arrived into GRR’s care after being surrendered by a puppy farmer to the RSPCA. When GRR picked up Sally from the RSPCA she was very frightened and had to be carried to the car. On arrival at GRR it was obvious that Sally had not long given birth to a litter of puppies. This sweet girl was very wary of people but once she learned that life at GRR meant good food, a warm bed, lots of cuddles and plenty of time to run and play in the paddocks Sally’s cheeky personality began to shine through.
Sally has shown herself to be a little pushy when it comes to treats and attention. These days Sally races up to people who she considers as a source of food and love and has taken to barking at her foster carer when she knows it is feeding time.
Riding in the car remains scary for Sally, as do the noises of traffic, so she is looking for......
Rescue 2 (Belle)
Three year old Belle arrived into GRR’s care after being surrendered by a puppy farmer to the RSPCA. Belle had never worn a collar or been taken for a walk on a lead so being picked up by GRR and placed in a car was a very scary experience for her. After two months in foster care Belle now looks at people as a source of fun and food and the once cringing dog is now running up to people with a smile.
Riding in the car remains scary for Belle, as do the noises of traffic so she is looking for a home and family who will provide her with the quiet life she desires. Belle’s vet check at the RSPCA showed that she is a healthy girl but her hips are not what we would like them to be. Belle will not require surgery but she will require regular injections and to be on a regimen of supplements so her new family will need to be committed to her ongoing healthcare......
Rescue 3 (Honey)
Honey came into GRR’s care in April this year and is currently in foster care where she lives with another Golden boy. Honey was diagnosed with arthritis in all major joints and suffered with untreated cruciate ligament injuries in both knees. She also had chronic ear infections and thickened ear flaps from previous haematomas. When Honey arrived into care her coat had been shaved showing irritated skin and wet skin fold infections. To add to these issues Honey was very overweight which added to her difficulty in raising herself from the floor or walking up the one step into her foster home.
Since her arrival into care at GRR Honey has become a regular visitor at GRR’s vet to attend to her issues. She has received a four week course of injections to help her arthritic joints. Pain killers were added but are no longer required as Honey......
Rescue 4 (Sunni)
Sunni came into GRR’s care in October 2019 presenting with a urinary leakage problem. Vets were consulted and the resulting x-rays sent to a Vet Specialist where Sunni was diagnosed with Bilateral Ectopic Ureter. Arriving in Sydney at the end of February 2020 Sunni was placed on a course of antibiotics before having laser surgery on 14th March. Sunni returned to GRR HQ to recover and to be observed for any signs of leakage. Coming up to four weeks post surgery and GRR is happy to announce that the laser surgery was completely successful and Sunni hasn’t missed a beat. She was back to her bossy ways in no time at all. Now it’s time for Sunni to find her forever home. Sunni will be celebrating her 7th birthday in May and hopefully it will be in her new home.
As Sunni has been in GRR’s care for six months both of her foster carers have a......
