In Our Care
These dogs are currently in one of our loving foster homes until ready for adoption. Our dogs come to SEVA GRREAT from owners who can no longer care for them, local shelters, or even from Turkey or China thanks to our international rescue partners. Their time in foster care can vary from weeks to months, depending on the dogs’ medical needs. Some need additional time to work through other behavioral issues. When they are available for adoption, those families on our approved waiting list will be notified. We work tirelessly to find the perfect forever home for each golden in our care.
Callie is a gorgeous golden/Pyrenees mix who just came to us from a local shelter. She is very sweet and loving, but also has the Pyrenees behavior of enjoying the outdoors and keeping an eye on what’s going on. We’ll get to know her in the coming weeks, and she should be available for adoption soon.
Rufus is about a year old and one of the cutest puppies you may ever meet. He’s very petite at only around 40 pounds and is settling in well in his foster home. He should be available for adoption soon.
Izzy is an adorable 5–6-year-old girl who came to us with Rufus when her family could no longer care for her. She is settling in well in her foster home as we get to know her, and she should be available for adoption soon.
Honey is an adorable golden mix that came to us from a rural shelter. She is about 2 years old and very sweet. She is scheduled for her spay soon and then will be available for adoption.
Duke is a handsome 9-year-old with a personality to match his good looks. He came to us when his owners could no longer care for him, and he settled in easily to his foster home. Don’t let that gray face fool you, as he’s got plenty of spunk. He will be posted for adoption very soon.
Cheyenne is 6 years old and came to us when her owner became ill. She is a sweet and friendly girl who loves attention and being petted. She also is very attentive to every rabbit and squirrel she sees and tends to pull hard after them on a leash. She is scheduled for her spay and we are working on her leash skills, and she should be available for adoption soon.
Charlie is an adorable golden mix who arrived as a stray from a local shelter. While we don’t have much history, it wasn’t hard to tell that he is one of the goofiest and friendliest goldens you’ll ever meet. He does seem to have some anxiety about being left alone, but that is improving. He needs to be neutered and should be ready for adoption soon.
Smokey is a handsome 4–5-year-old golden/Pyrenees mix who was surrendered to a local shelter. We are just getting to know him, and so far, he is a very sweet boy. He does tend to bark at strangers which can be intimidating but warms up fairly quickly. He will soon be scheduled for his neuter surgery, and he should be ready for adoption afterward.
Elvis came in with Kate, Freckles, and Gypsy from an owner who had “too many dogs”. We can’t say much more, other than we know Elvis is already thriving in our care. He is very fearful like the others but learning to trust while he gets all the care and TLC he needs. It will likely be months before Elvis is ready for adoption, but we know we will get him there.
Kate is a beautiful young golden who is approximately a year old. Because she was not properly socialized, she is quite fearful of everything around her. Collars, leashes, and living in a loving home are completely new to her. But thanks to her wonderful foster home, she is learning how good things can be and we look forward to finding her forever home.
Remmi is an adorable little golden mix from a rural shelter in Brunswick County. He is heartworm positive and has patchy fur, likely due to fleas and/or allergies. He needs to complete his heartworm treatment before he is ready for adoption. At less than a year old, we know his personality and coat will shine as he gets the love and TLC he needs.
Wren is another of Opie’s companions that came to us last month. She is learning to trust her foster dad and canine foster sibling, while she gets the care she needs. We are working on her socialization with people, as she is also quite fearful. More to come on Wren as she gets closer to being ready for adoption.
Opie is about 7 months old and came in with several others in early June. He is quite shy and unsocialized but makes progress every day. Because he is still very afraid of being on a leash, his vet care is being provided by a mobile veterinarian who comes to the house. We are so grateful to them and his foster family for showing Opie how good life can be. We can’t wait for him to blossom and find his forever home.
Tommy is a brand-new arrival from a local shelter. He is about a year old and probably a golden/lab/pyrenees mix. He was very sad in the shelter but has settled in well with his foster. He does have some separation anxiety which will need continued monitoring/management. Tommy aka “Tug” is available for adoption to a family that can continue to provide the care he needs.
Max arrived to us in late March from an owner who could no longer care for her. She is only 16 months old and very healthy, although she does have a heart murmur. She will be seeing cardiology soon for evaluation and we’ll know more. She also needs to be spayed and then we hope she will be ready for adoption.
