meet our goldens

"Rescue dogs aren't broken, they've simply experienced more life than other dogs.  If they were human, we would call them wise.  They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write, the ones dealt a bad hand who responded with courage.  Don't pity a rescue dog. Adopt One. And be proud to have their greatness by your side."

If you are interested in meeting one of our goldens, there are a few things you need to do first.

1.  Fill out an application online or download an application today.  
2.  Email Adoptions (adoptions@azgrc.org) to contact our adoptions coordinator about your interest in one of our Goldens.

samHi my name is Sam and I am one happy dog!   Want to know why?  Just read my tailer tale!

A few weeks ago I was just another street dog. I'd been kicked around a bit (really hard), so I limp a little. That made it hard to find food so I got really skinny.  Just when I thought things couldn't get much worse, another dog took exception to my face and gave me quite a bite.  My face really hurt and got all big.  I usually try and keep happy, but that bite took me low.  Just when I figured there was nothing let for me, I was taken off the streets and then some nice ladies brought me to a hospital.  By then I was pretty sick and it was so nice to just have a quiet place where I felt safe.  I thought this was where I might find the Rainbow Bridge.

Pretty soon, after lots of help from the nice people at the hospital I started to feel so much better!  My bite mark is almost gone and my face is back to normal.  But that's not the best part.  The people really like me here!!  They give me good food, treats, lots of pets, and kisses (yeah, me getting kisses!)  One of the ladies who always visits me has promised she will help me find my very own family who will love me forever.  I think that would be even better than finding the Rainbow Bridge to Heaven!  

The nice lady says I need to "display all my good features" whatever that means, but here goes.   I am told I am six or seven years old. That means I'm wise enough to appreciate a good home and a loving family!  I'm very smart 'cause I already know sit and down (sometimes).  I'm getting pretty good at telling the people when I have to go potty. If you just show me where I can do my business, I'll do fine.   I love to play with toys and especially chase balls.  I'm also pretty good at catching them mid-air!   I have one favor to ask of my new family and that is they let me be the only dog.  Because of that bite I got, I really am nervous of other dogs getting too close to my face.   If you'd seen my face before it healed, you would understand.   That's about all I can tell you.   What I lack in the looks department (I'm not just another pretty face!), I make up for in strength of character, a Golden heart, and a sunny personality.   If you give me a chance, I'll be the best companion you could ever hope for!

gunnyHi, my name is Gunny and I am a happy, bouncy boy. I love people and will jump and twist in the air when I first meet you but I settle down with some petting and a little playing. I am very smart and already know sit, down, come and I am pretty good at stay. I do need some leash work but that is because I am young and get excited to be out exploring.

I was shaved before I came to Arizona Golden Retriever Connection so they donít know how long my hair will be but I am so handsome that it wonít matter.

I would love to meet you and become a part of your family.

Iris was rescued from a puppy mill. She had been living in the kennel for all her life. Her owner used her to breed puppies year after year. However, the environment she lived was pretty nasty.
