The following goldens are looking for their forever homes.........



As you all know we have a general policy of not taking in mixes but occasionally I make an exception. If I have a home interested in a mix and one comes available, I will bring it in.

This is what I did for SWEET Lola. 

She went into a wonderful home. Unfortunately recently her owner has had some health issues and because of this, Lola is in need of a new home. Lola is a sweetheart. She loves everyone including other dogs and cats. She is a happy little girl.

Lola is between 1 and 2 years old






Both of these wonderful boys have been Adopted


Braxton and Bailey


Males / approx. 4 years old

We are thrilled to announce that that Braxton has been adopted.  He has now found his wonderful "forever" home.  He now has two little boys who love him to death and play endlessly with him.


Bailey is still looking for that perfect forever home. Since his brother has been adopted, he has only jumped the fence once. This happened while I was out in the yard watching him. When he couldn't convince the others to come along on his little jaunt to the creek, he simply hung his head and came back into the yard through the gate when I called. He is great in the house.  He has good manners and is quite sweet and loving. He loves the dog beds that are scattered all over the house but is absolutely terrified of my Mom's 23lb Siamese cat....Bailey calls Mikee the cat from hell. However Bailey's nature is so sweet, he loves everyone else here including the 3 other cats and the hamster...he could care less about the Bettas and the other fish or turtles though. He loves to play with toys and I know he will fetch if resident golden Jill wasn't so pushy and takes everything away from him! He is also terrified of getting his picture taken so that is why you only see his cute butt in some of the pictures we are posting. If you think that you would be his perfect, most loving "forever home" please give Mary a call! For more pictures of Bailey, you can go to the events page. Bailey was a participant at Woofstock. (all single photos here are of Bailey)







Female / approx. 11 years old


Holly is a sweet 11 year old red golden girl.  She is house trained and is not crated.  She is in wonderful health and loves to just hang out with you.  Please call Mary if you would like to know more about this adorable older lady.
