Golden Retriever (medium coat) : : Male : : Adult
I would love you more than you can imagine.
CANELO is available!
Canelo is a 7-year-old, already neutered, purebred Golden. Even though Canelo was living with another Golden, we found early on that he does not do well with other dogs he doesn’t know. He was originally placed with single guy with no other pets, but this adopter is now moving out of the country and cannot take Canelo with him. Canelo received his basic vetting where it was noticed he has some cataracts, but at this point they do not obstruct his vision. Canelo has received some obedience training. He is housebroken but does best if crated when his people leave the house. He is leery of people he doesn't know, and he is reactive to other dogs. Canelo would benefit from some serious boarding/training; AGR is willing to pay for appropriate training with reasonable costs if pre-approved and if the adopter(s) are willing to continue with the follow-up lessons.
All potential fosters and adopters must complete an application, pay the $25.00 application fee and have a home visit before being considered for any dog. If you reside in Arizona and are interested in adopting a dog like this from Arizona Golden Rescue, we recommend that you visit our website and complete the Online Adoption Application to begin the process.
WE DO NOT ADOPT OUTSIDE OF THE STATE OF ARIZONA. Once we receive your application and application fee, a home visit will be scheduled. Once your home visit is approved, you will be placed on our waiting list. (Please be aware that your application cannot be processed until the application fee is paid.)
Our sole purpose is to find the perfect home for the dog as our dogs always come first.
Because we have new rescues coming in all the time, if the Golden that is the right dog for you is not available at this time it will probably come into Rescue and you would be notified of the availability.
Waiting times vary depending upon how specific your preferences are. The more you restrict the factors involved in choosing a dog – age, sex, coat color, etc. – the longer the wait may be before we find the perfect dog for you.
Please note: it is the policy of AGR not to place a dog less than 3 years of age with a family that has children less than 3 years of age.

Arizona Golden Rescue is organized as an all-volunteer, non-profit, 501 (c) (3) corporation. We are a charitable organization whose mission is to rescue displaced Golden Retrievers and mostly Golden mixes that have been abused, abandoned, neglected or unwanted and find new, loving, permanent homes for them. Rescued dogs are given a complete veterinary exam and their vaccines are updated; they are also micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and tested for valley fever and heartworm. AGR provides emotional and medical rehabilitation and will pay for medications and for necessary surgeries. Through education at public appearances, AGR seeks to educate the public about the Golden Retriever breed and about responsible dog ownership, in order to help reduce the unwanted dog population.
