Hi, I’m Available!


We often get questions and comments regarding our fence policy. We require a secure physical fence for the dogs we adopt. Many of our dogs are Goldens that have been retired from breeding facilities. While these dogs have been given basic care, they have not been treated as pets and are not socialized. Their Instinct is to run and hide until they have learned to trust and have bonded with their new family, and they have not yet learned to relieve themselves while on leash. Others can be shy due to their treatment before coming to rescue. Some of our dogs are very active and love to run and play and chase balls, and they need a safely fenced yard. We acknowledge that there are very good dog owners that do not have fences, but we cannot pick and choose. We must have a standard policy for the safety of the dogs. We do not like to disappoint or upset people, but bottom line our dogs come first and we will always err on the side of caution. That being said, there are countless wonderful dogs that need homes, and there are many rescues that do not have the same fence requirements.
  Love A Golden is a rescue organization based in St. Louis, Missouri. We strive to find the best available home for each individual Golden in our program ~ our goal is finding the Golden’s “forever home.”
If you are interested in adopting one of our Goldens, we ask that you read more about our adoption procedures by clicking HERE and fill out an adoption application.
We try to keep our listing up-to-date, but some recently available dogs may not be listed yet and some listed dogs may already be adopted.

BELOW ARE LOVE A GOLDEN'S LOOKING FOR NEW HOMES

Click on the photos below to get a full size image of the dog as well as additional information and/or photos if available.



Carter
male


Carter is the happiest guy! His Date of Birth is 5/10/2023 He has such a typical golden personality. He is curious and non-stop playful. He loves toys, especially ones with a squeaker! We are still getting to know each other and he is working hard on learning house manners and already making some progress. He loves people and older kids and gets along great with our 4-year-old golden.

Riley
male
Riley is a handsome two year old who came from us when his owner passed away.  He may be a flat-coat retriever or a mix of some sort.  He must have some golden in him because he is a “leaner”!

Riley is an energetic boy, and he loves to run and play with other dogs.  He is also happy to just run by himself.  He plays hard and he crashes hard.  He’s a super snuggler, especially in the morning.  He has had a couple of weeks of training at Kennelwood and has learned so much.  He is smart, and he would like someone to continue his training with him.  He would also like his forever family to walk him every single day.  Riley LOVES to “go”.  He rides well in the car, but if you get out, he will be in the front seat when you get back to your car. 

Riley eats in his crate, and he crates happily at bedtime.  His foster mom has left him out overnight, and for short periods of time during the day, and he’s been fine, but he is crated during the day.

Chad
male
Chad is a fun guy whose manners are greatly improving! He has learned to walk well on leash and he loves going on walks. His Date of Birth is 5/10/2023.  At first he was very mouthy but is learning that is not acceptable.  In the evenings he settles down after a busy day of being a puppy and playing with other dogs.

Sapphire
female


Sapphire's DOB is 7/12/2023. She is an English cream girl, full of puppy energy. She enjoys playing and seeks attention. Create trained, spayed, does well in the car, leash-trained, and understands basic commands. Treat motivated and learns quickly. Gets along well with other dogs and is social in her foster mom's workplace. She has high energy but settles down after play.

Crystal
female

Crystal, DOB 5/10/23, came from a breeder when they closed. Crystal is no couch potato. The photo is deceiving. She is in a foster home with another golden having fun. She does not do "puppy biting" but will chew a wide array of objects. Nighttime is no bother, as she sleeps through the night. Crystal picks up on our preferences quickly but is independent and persevering. Tennis balls work best for "fetch."  For the first 8 months of her life she had little guidance and lived with her letter of seven, so obedience training is a must as well as lots of walks!

Apollo
male mix

Are you looking to downsize??? Here I am! I am about 25 lbs. and full of love! While I am not a golden, I have a golden tail and golden personality! I am estimated at about three years old. I get along well with other dogs, and love people. I am house trained, and love my kennel and go into it whenever necessary.  I love to play with toys and play fetch!

Mya
female
Mya, DOB 5/26/2020, is a beautiful red golden. She came from a breeder and is doing so much better as she is no longer nervous and knows the routine.  At first she was very insecure and chewed things up; now she has learned that is not appropriate. She will also go outside with her doggie friend and stay out walking around the yard. She would do best with another well-adjusted golden, not because she plays a lot but because she likes to have a companion as a friend and someone to learn from.  Her new home should be a home with someone present a lot due to her personality of needing people.  She loves to be petted and can be pushy but with a firm "no" she settles down.

Claire
female
special needs

Claire is a special needs girl who was born with abnormal size kidneys.  Her DOB is December 12, 2020.  She came from a breeder.  You would never know she has this condition; she loves walks and life. She loves to be outside searching for critters.  Due to her condition, as long as the correct diet is maintained and she has regular blood checkups, to be sure of the levels she is currently at are maintained, she could have a normal life.   But as with all dogs there is no guarantee

She will destroy a soft toy in no time, so instead she loves Nyla bones and antlers.

Like many dogs she refused to eat the dry kidney food, so her foster home cooks for her and has been able to add dry with it along with Purina NF wet kidney food.  It is simple and inexpensive to cook just time consuming.  Her treats are limited to just at bedtime.  She currently goes to acupuncture once a month, which was recommended for dogs with kidney issues.

Claire is a very sweet girl, who gets along with her doggie friends.

Cassidy
female

English Cream Golden
SPECIAL NEEDS

Cassidy is an English Cream Golden Retriever with puppy spunk; DOB 1/14/2022.  Love a Golden Rescue has been taking care of her since she was a little puppy due to medical concerns.  Cassity was born with “bladder issues”.  Her bladder is more forward than her doggy friends and she did not have the ability to use her sphincter muscle to control her urine.  After three surgeries, she was controlling her urine and her body had learned to hold in until she goes outside.  Her life of diapers had ended and we were so excited to have her listed as “special needs” available for adoption. 


Unfortunately the last few months she had a set back and is back in panties some of the time. Cassidy is a fun loving girl who loves all and has no idea she is different. In her new home have to be on the lookout for UTI.  Her specialist is in Bridgeton, Mo and as they are aware of her previous medical we believe any follow up for this condition should be done there.
