Raider.jpg (32531 bytes)RAIDER:  Now known as Ranger, is a 4-year old, red, neutered, male Golden.  This smaller sized male was rescued from a high desert shelter.  Frisky, loving and adorable, he was a dream come true for Dana & Dianne of Temecula, CA.  He's already had a party in his honor, and is making new friends daily!  It's pretty clear that Ranger is set to be spoiled - and we're certain it'll do wonders for his ever entertaining personality.  


Redford.jpg (41466 bytes)REDFORD: Is a 5-year old, blond, neutered, male Golden.  Like his namesake, this guy is handsome and a charmer!  Outgoing and playful, this robust golden won the hearts of Arlene and her twin sons of Woodland Hills, C.A.  A few years ago Arlene & her sons adopted one of our other wonderful goldens, Buddy, and they've been looking for another easy-going, fun loving partner for some time.  Redford fit the bill nicely!  We hope to hear some fun stories come back from this household soon.


Petey-face.jpg (23349 bytes)PETEY: Is a 5-1/2 year old, blond, neutered, male Golden.  Sweet, docile and somewhat clumsy, this gentle giant is blossoming beautifully with his new family!  His ideal home came in the form of Jerry & Lynn of Danville, CA.  They were looking for a loving and friendly dog to add to their home.  Petey fit the bill perfectly!  With plenty of love, fun outings and tons of attention to offer, this couple and Petey were a match made in heaven.  Petey has begun obedience class, made a new friend in the daughter's golden, and is charming all who meet him.  He's a happy fellow.  Update July 2004: Petey graduated as star of his obedience class!


CINDY: Is an 11-year old, spayed, 50 lb., red, female Golden.  This sprightly gal is an absolute love.  A sweet, docile, affectionate companion, and a good starter for first time dog owners.  Jeff and Debbie of Palmdale, CA were looking for a gentle companion to keep Deb company at home.  Cindy was the ideal match!  These days Cindy gets double the attention she was hoping for - days with Deb and evenings with Jeff.  Plus, she gets to enjoy tons of love from their families - a wonderful setting for such a sweet girl.  Update Nov 2004:  Cindy was lost to cancer on November 9th.  This gentle, funny gal was a delight to Deb, and she will be greatly missed.


CISSY: Is a 6-year old, gold, spayed, beautiful female Golden.  This lovely female is wonderful with children, social, playful, housebroken, affectionate, and aims to please.  Mark & Dayna of Visalia, CA were looking for just such a golden to add to their family.  It was love at first sight, and Cissy is now happily romping with the kids, making friends with Foxy (the cat), and enjoying regular outings.  Everyone is happy, especially this adorable golden who now has an entire family to love her.


Diggy-stand.jpg (31033 bytes)DIGGY: Is an 8-1/2 year old, neutered, gold, 82 lb., male Golden.  This handsome male is a riot!  Originally obese and suffering arthritis in his hips, Diggy also underwent surgery to remove a mast cell tumor from a rear leg.  David of Ventura, CA fell in love with this jolly golden, and has provided a nurturing home for Diggy's recuperation and "golden" years.   Already Diggy is enjoying social outings and fun times with his new human, and we look forward to many more stories in the years to come! 


Ian.jpg (29605 bytes)IAN: Is a 3-1/2 year old, blond, neutered, male Golden who is full of energy and raring to go. This gorgeous fellow has a high play and prey drive.  He lives to play fetch. Ian's ideal home offers lots of bonding, training, social time, as well as energetic activities & play.  Steve & Linda of Valencia, CA had such a home, and they fell in love with Ian upon meeting him.  Ian was ecstatic over their willingness to toss the ball, and Bodie (their resident golden) was happy to have a playmate.  Ian's sure to enjoy the fun outings, ample exercise, and oodles of attention with his new family.  


Trevor03.jpg (36933 bytes)TREVOR: Is a 2-year old, dark gold, neutered, Golden.  Somewhat hand shy, Trevor needed a home with a nurturing human.  David of Ventura, CA felt that Trevor would be a compatible addition to his and Diggy's home.  Now, Trevor and his fellow GH alumni are frolicking along with David, his daughter & granddaughter.  They're enjoying fun outings and getting lots of love.  We expect to hear plenty of fun updates in the future. 


Shasta.jpg (34996 bytes)SHASTA: Is a special needs gal.  This 18-month old, gold, spayed, female Golden suffers from separation anxiety and cannot be left outdoors alone.  Her ideal home came in the form of Norm & Monnie Jo of Indio, CA.  This wonderful, retired couple has taken Shasta into their hearts and is introducing her to the country club crowd.  Shasta now spends her days visiting friends, schmoozing with the neighbors, dining out, taking walks, playing with her new feline housemate, and soaking up lots of love!  We suspect the entire neighborhood will be smitten with Shasta before long.  After all, she's quite the sweetheart!

Ume.jpg (51573 bytes)UME (oo'-may) now known as Roxy, is a lovely blonde, 1-year old, spayed, female Golden who is quite a character!  Very affectionate, clingy, and playful, her ideal home came in the form of Al & Judy of Woodland Hills, CA.  This fun loving couple were looking for just such a companion to add to their family.  Roxy has been making friends ever since!  Already we've received new photos of Roxy and her family, and we look forward to many more as the years go by.
