Rescue Me ID: 17-02-22-00315Chance (male)

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Chance is a sweet, 4 year old (approx.), golden retriever mix boy! He has had a very tough life but all that has changed for him! When he was picked up by animal control it was very clear he has a terrible embedded collar at some point. We believe chance has lived his whole life outside as he is learning the rules of living inside. Chance was also heartworm positive. However, since then he has been through heartworm treatment, his embedded collar has healed up, he has been neutered, and is up to date on all vaccines and monthly preventatives! Chances loves people and other dogs! He loves to play outside, go for walks, and is learning what ... (Read More)'dog toys' are. He especially loves treats, deli meat, and cheese! Although Chance did not like the crate at first, he has come a long way and does very well in the crate now! He will stay in there without making a peep. He is continuing to work on his house training and is doing very well on a consistent schedule! He enjoys lounging around on the couch and his dog bed and would love to find his perfect family! If you are interested in meeting Chance please fill out an application on! (Less)

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Daisy has displayed territorial agression for almost a year. We have tried to correct her behavior but have been unsuccessful. We live in a neighborhood with lots of kids and have a small yard. She does awesome with our kids but acts out against others who come near or in our home. We are running out of options and my husband wants to take her to the 'pound'. I don't want her to get euthanized :(

Animal ID: 160937Bailey (female)

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Hi! I'm Bailey! I'm 10 years old and I weigh 45 pounds and came to TGRR after my owner went to the hospital. Although I am a mix, I have a golden personality in that I am very sweet and get along with everyone - humans, cats, and other dogs. Everyone keeps saying I'm 'Low Maintenance,' which I think means I like to chill with my peeps. TGRR thinks I had some poor nutrition and flea allergies in the past so my hair is still growing back in some places. I love to go for walks and walk great on a leash. I come when called and I just want to be where-ever you are! My very favorite thing is a back rub. My other very favorite thing is a belly ... (Read More)rub. I also love stuffed toys. I have a microchip and I'm healthy and up-to-date on my vaccinations. I promise to give back to you lots of love. If you'd like more information about adopting me, please contact: (336) 288-9944 or visit (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-10-06-00340Charlie (male)

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Charlie is a very sweet, loyal guy once he gets used to someone. It does take him time to feel at ease in new environments and around new people. He has some anxiety issues, and should not be around young children. I am looking for a home for him because I have just become a licensed foster parent, and realize that being around children would not be good for him.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Golden Retriever in North Carolina
    Golden Retriever Dogs can make good pets in North Carolina if they match your IifestyIe. The Golden Retriever is a gundog that loves the water. Originally bred for hunting, Goldens make wonderful family pets. Golden Retrievers are very sweet, patient, gentle, and excellent with children. Goldens are eager to please and respond very well to obedience training. Goldens make good watchdogs but are far too friendly with everyone, from strangers to other dogs, to be used as guard dogs. Goldens need human companionship. They can get into trouble if neglected. This breed is suitable for homes with yards, and needs plenty of brisk daily exercise.
